Economic espionage is a problem that costs the American economy billions of dollars annually and puts our national security at risk.
To raise awareness of the issue, the FBI and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center have launched a nationwide campaign and released a short film aimed at educating anyone with a trade secret about the threat and how they can help mitigate it. Based on an actual case, illustrates how one U.S. company was targeted by foreign actors and how that company worked with the FBI to resolve the problem and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Paul Eno and Ben Eno to speak at NEIT
Thursday, October 29th, 7 p.m.
…sinister interest in the paranormal, and why?
What do your own paranormal experiences really mean?
These and other mind-expanding questions will be on the table as Paul & Ben Eno, co-hosts of CBS Radio’s and 1240 AM’s “Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno” present famous cases from their combined 55 years of experience, at the East Greenwich campus of the New England Institute of Technology on Thursday, Oct, 29, 7pm.
Their “What’s Really Behind the Paranormal” program will take listeners through Paul Eno’s first shocking investigations, including the chilling “Village of Voices” case of 1971, the world-famous Bridgeport Poltergeist of 1974 (with Ed & Lorraine Warren), up to the bizarre and ongoing Connecticut paranormal flap that started with ghosts in 2005 and now involves UFOs, the military and a secret base. Other Eno cases from America and Europe will be included.
After the program, there will be a “Meet and Greet” in the New England Tech library.

“Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno” is in its eighth season and has been compared in quality with shows on National Public Radio. It aired on CBS Radio in Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Seattle from 2009-2014, and is now heard in a Boston/Providence drive-time edition on Mondays on WOON 1240 AM, streaming live at ONWorldwide.com and in delayed broadcast on Dark Matters Radio. A regular on “Coast to Coast AM” with George Noory and a familiar face on the History and Travel Channels, Paul Eno is the author of six books on the paranormal. He and Ben starred in “The Devil’s Hour,” a Warner Brothers featurette that accompanied the 2013 release of “The Conjuring.”
Brief Biography of Paul Eno and his son, Ben Eno
Noted Author, Radio Personality, Journalist and Paranormal Investigator PAUL ENO will speak and present a powerpoint on his more than 45 years of paranormal investigations. Paul has had “hair-raising adventures with famous hauntings, along with utterly unique, riveting theories about paranormal and its meaning for our understanding of the world and ourselves.”
Paul & Ben Eno are best known as the father-son co-hosts of the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 Boston/Worcester/Providence drive-time show “Behind the Paranormal,” with an estimated 3 million listeners. But with a combined 55 years of experience as paranormal researchers, they are far more than talk-show hosts.
Paul was one of the first paranormal investigators of the early 1970s, beginning while he was studying for the priesthood. His early mentors included parapsychology pioneer Dr. Louisa Rhine, Fr. John J. Nicola S.J. (technical advisor for the film The Exorcist) and legendary, first-generation “ghost hunters” Ed & Lorraine Warren. He graduated from two seminaries but was expelled from a third because of his paranormal work with less than two years to go before ordination. He ended up as an award-winning New England journalist and the author of five books on the paranormal and two books on history.
Early on, Paul found that many ghost cases, if thoroughly researched, turned into UFO cases. This led to theories and methods involving never-before-suspected connections between ghosts, cryptids and UFOs.
Ben Eno joined his dad’s adventures in 2005 at the age of 13, demonstrating some unique insights and, at 16, becoming the youngest syndicated broadcaster in America. Ben is a sound expert and is a recent graduate of Emerson College in Boston with a degree in audio engineering and sound design.
