Bell was one of only a few talk show hosts who do not screen calls. He began screening calls in 2006, but subsequently returned to unscreened calls in response to a caller's query on the matter.
His calm attitude, patient questions, and ability to tease substance from nebulous statements of callers and guests gave his show a relaxed yet serious atmosphere earning him praise from those who declare the paranormal deserves a mature outlet of discussion in the media, as well as the approval of those simply amused by the nightly parade of bizarre, typically fringe topics.
