If you've seen a UFO or had a paranormal experience, Jordan Bonaparte wants to talk to you.

The 34-year-old Nova Scotia man has just launched an online radio program called Night Time Podcast.

The stories will come from across Atlantic Canada, with a focus on ghosts, mysteries and historic crimes.

Bonaparte grew up in Sydney and his first podcast has a personal connection. His grandfather, Edward Hashem, describes seeing a UFO near Englishtown in 1986.  

"I was driving up a place called Munro's Point," Hashem says. "It's a high, sort of half-size mountain and all of a sudden I saw this thing coming through the sky and it hovered right above my car. It stalled my engine. I looked up and it was a big disk, a round disc that was maybe 20 or 30 feet in diameter."

Bonaparte is currently looking for stories about weird things that have happened in the woods for a future episode.

His next podcast will be about the UFO sighting at Shag Harbour, N.S., on Oct. 4, 1967. Multiple witnesses reported seeing something crash into the waters of Shag Harbour, but the object was never identified. 

Bonaparte said he's always been fascinated by horror, science fiction and fantasy and is just as interested in UFOs now as when he was eight years old. 

He works in the insurance industry, but would love to see the podcast eventually draw a big enough audience to generate income.

"At this point, it's just a hobby but you never know." he said. "If it became successful, maybe I could have some advertisers help me out and I would love to stay home all day reading about UFOs on the internet."
