About me

Hello! My name's Chris Amandier, and I'm a paranormal researcher, writer, artist, and the host of Buried Secrets Podcast. I also appear in the upcoming webseries Inhuman Beings.

I blog about the stuff I'm interested in: paranormal and occult weirdness, history, tech, creativity, and nostalgia. I approach subjects as a researcher learning in public, not an expert: the blog is focused on sharing what I'm learning and developing my thoughts.

I also create all of the art on this website (unless otherwise stated).

You can subscribe to receive my blog posts via the form on the top-right corner of this site, Medium, Substack, or the RSS feed. If you only want to subscribe to posts about certain topics, then you can do that. (To learn more about subscribing to specific tags via RSS feed, check out these instructions.)

My writing has also been published in The Feminine Macabre Volumes I and II.

You can follow me on Mastodon or Instagram. You can email me at buriedsecretspodcast@gmail.com. (But I'm currently on hiatus, so I'm not closely monitoring my email at the moment.)

I grew up in North Texas and now live in Queens, New York, with my wife, about seventy houseplants, and a friendly ghost. My pronouns are he/him.
