Noah Michelson is the Editorial Director of HuffPost Personal and the host of "D Is For Desire," HuffPost's love and sex podcast. He joined HuffPost in 2011 and went on to oversee all of HuffPost's community sections before pivoting to create and run HuffPost Personal in 2018. He received his MFA in Poetry from New York University and has served as a commentator for the BBC, MSNBC, Entertainment Tonight, Current TV, Fuse, Sirius XM, and HuffPost Live.
In an article he wrote for Out Magazine, Noah says with regard to the paranormal, he “always really, really wanted to believe -- but had not been given any reason to.” He went on to say that growing up, his grandmother's family was incredibly superstitious: No seating 13 people at a single dinner table, no traveling on Friday the 13th, and her grandmother supposedly lived next door to a werewolf somewhere in Germany. As the story goes, he was a really nice guy -- you just had to lock up your chickens whenever there was a full moon, or the next morning he'd have eaten them all. Beyond that, his little brother may or may not have been abducted by aliens (he spent most nights sleeping on a mattress on his bedroom floor because he was too scared to be in his room alone in case they came back for him), but he never had an actual close encounter of the supernatural kind - Until he met a psychic medium. Join us next Wednesday at 7 PM when we talk all things paranormal with HuffPosts’s Noah Michaelson.
