No comments? How could people not comment?

I will comment - vote for The Debris Field as best news site! You know you want to!

Vote for BoA: Audio as best podcast! Once again, you know that you want to!

UFO Mystic isn't just guys, there is also me, so vote for it too! That is not to say that I don't love others that are nominated - I have a hard time deciding too.

On a more serious note - did Dark Matters even have any episodes in 2009? I think not, all the more reason you should vote for BoA!

Disclaimer: The proceeding may be slightly prejudice, but it is done with love.

Ssssssh.... Lesley. Them's fightin' words. Kimball may pay your website a visit just to attack you for questioning this like he did me. With any bit of luck he'll come up with a zinger to sting me with here too.

Well Lesley, if you visited The Paracast, the top rated Forum around, you would know that Dark Matters Radio posted a "ton" of podcasts in 2009.

And for all you who voted for Dark Matters Radio ... THANK YOU!! And for all you that haven't voted yet ... Vote for Dark Matters Radio ... YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!!! :)


Loren Coleman said...

Thank you, Paul, for your kind nomination. I appreciate it. Once again, I am thankful that people care enough about the research and writing I do to clicking my name, in a group of choices that is overflowing with talent. Thanks to all my fans, friends, and foes for the votes.

As to all the other selections, again, the choices are overwhelming.

I liked seeing The Anomalist get a nod, as they do little to promote themselves, despite having done what they've done for over a decade. Lesley's a great person, and I have voted for her in the past. This year I went with TA, to celebrate their hard work, for such a long time.

I think next year, Paul, you should have a write-in, so we could pen this blog in somewhere.

Opening Day is soon, and life begins anew!

Maybe next year Paul could include Unexplained Mysteries in the Discussion Forums list?

DARK MATTER may not have been there last year BUT THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME AND I STILL LISTEN TO SOME OF THE BEST IN THE BIZ...DON ECKER, So you are intitled to your oppinion but

The main man here is Loren Coleman. In my thoughts as well as millions of others, Coleman is the man that makes Cryptozoology legitimate.

In a science that is taken lightly or not at all, no one can dispute what Loren has brought to this fringe of believability and turned into something real.

There may be others out there with equal credentials, but if I want the rational about any type of anomalous creature, before I go anywhere else, I want to see what Loren Coleman says about it first.

I am surprised that abovetopsecret hasn't received more votes on the forum vote. It's one, if not, of the best sites on the web.

Given the choices I gotta go with BoA hands down! Angelia Joiner with The Joiner Report and Karyn Dolan with Through the Keyhole are definitely a close second, however IMHO. Sadly missing from the lists, however, both in the Researcher and Show categories are Joe Montaldo, and UFO Undercover. Again, IMHO, there isn't a harder working individual in the field; both in spreading the TRUTH, and unafraid to ruffle feathers if needed. He may not always tow the party line, so to speak, but he's a straight shooter, and worthy to be on the list.

Hi guys,

Great list! I voted for Tim Binnall's podcast, and for Loren Coleman as top researcher.

Tough field, though! Many greats, such as Nick Redfern, here, as well. I also learned about many new people and sites, thanks to these nominations.

I can also see how badly everyone misses Mac Tonnies.

And it appears Gummerfan's Monster Hunter HQ, and it's humble creator remain unnoticed...
I don't get no respect!
