Chuck Ochelli is a polymath, a podcaster, and noted JFK researcher. The host of The Ochelli Effect (8-10 pm EST, every Mon-Fri), Chuck brings a conspiracy realist’s perspective to topics ranging from deep politics to popular culture, from political assassinations to science fact and fiction, from the alternative to the mainstream, from the speculative to the historical.

Chuck brings his noted curiosity to every show and his hard-earned insight into human nature to every interview. That’s why The Ochelli Effect’s format is guest-oriented. The Ochelli Effect is the home of truly alternative voices and Chuck emphasizes listener participation through phone calls and an active chat room where Effectors can interact with Chuck and his guests in real-time.

The mission of the show is simple. Chuck, a.k.a. “the Blind J.F.K. Researcher,” wants to open eyes to lies and open minds to the truth. And he loves to talk to people.


  In the late 1980s Chuck Ochelli was a high school student and a musician, generally fascinated with American History, particularly educating himself on the circumstances surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

In the 1990s, Chuck progressively engaged in J.F.K. research and investigations revolving around many deep political figures and events. His contributions and participation in support of various authors and producers of media projects as an interviewer, analyst, and research assistant coupled with having a life-long appreciation for the medium of talk radio evolved into active correspondence with various alternative media figures.

In 2008 while interacting with many talk show hosts and producers of New Media, he was encouraged to create “The Blind J.F.K. Researcher” channel on You-Tube.  This platform was used to display his extensive knowledge of the assassination of our 35th President, despite having the physical handicap of limited vision, highlighting the philosophy that “Even a blind man can see a conspiracy”.

The Ochelli Effect Podcast launched in late 2013 as an outlet for independent critical analysis of historical controversies, current geopolitics, social issues, media, breaking news, and literature from Chuck’s perspective.  After appearing as a guest and caller on multiple live internet broadcasts for many previous years and receiving encouragement from other talk show hosts, The Ochelli Effect debuted as a regularly scheduled, unscripted interview program.

Hundreds of guests and co-hosts have participated in The Ochelli Effect. A microcosm of alumni includes Esai Morales, G.
