We are back from vacation and ready to tackle the great white whale that is our dream episode! Our listeners have submitted a huge range of stories about their nocturnal adventures, from predicting births in their family to saying goodbye to loved ones to parallel lives in Eastern Europe - as always, it gets weird.
You've heard their names a hundred times, now it's time to meet the Ghost Story Guys research team! That's right, on this bonus episode Luke Greensmith and Anthony Germain join us to tell us about themselves, what they do, and how working on the show has helped shape their points of view.
Also on this episode: Brennan has to hear more about his invisible kids, Luke was nearly blinded, and we are forced to endure the words "tiger logs". You'll see. Hear? Whichever.
On this episode we wake up some haunted bric-a-brac and find stories that bring us joy while also creeping us the hell out. Cursed paintings, disappearing butter dishes, and a piano that connects two women across time and space are just some of the pieces of this fine mess.
Also on this episode: Chat Roulette with prescriptions, Ferrari vs. Tractor, and Brenda in the park.
What's more romantic than two grown men spending Valentine's Day together reading each other stories about people having sex with ghosts? Pretty much anything, and that's why we scrapped that idea in favor of much better stories from our listeners. You still get to hear the outtakes though...
Also on this episode: the Gym Screamer, we need an adult, and why you should never ever housesit
Sacre bleu! On this episode we tackle our first full episode centered on a foreign locale, along the way hurdling a language barrier and finding stories of the worst AirB&B ever, a hotel that wasn't there in the morning, a little boy who can go straight to hell, and more!
Also on this episode: Brennan Storr: PI, Ian is shamed in a French laundromat, and what happens when ghosts are incompetent murderers.
On this episode we bravely venture beneath the surface of that great watery scourge, the ocean (plus one lake), to find stories of the Demon Crab, an electric ghost, disappearing galleons and a whole lot more.
Also on this episode: the worst AirB&B, why we would be useless in a war, and listen all the way to the end to hear Ian's Pterodactyl laugh.
On this episode we raise a glass and set off in pursuit of haunted pubs, and from the UK to America we find stories of disembodied voices, things in the basement, destructive phantoms and black-eyed girls, plus a lot more.
Also on this episode: we welcome Sarah to the team, there's singing in the outtakes, and our old friend is back. You'll hear what we mean in the intro - no we didn't put it there and we have no idea what it is.
On our ninth volume of listener stories (and longest episode so far) we go from Arkansas to the Philippines and beyond, along the way finding tales of shadow people, astral projection, and a possible banshee encounter so strong we encouraged the listener to immediately consult a doctor.
Also on this episode: Ian as flying squirrel, the disappearing man, and what kind of podcasts we'd be making if we didn't love the paranormal so damn much.
Finally! On this episode we take a trip to New Orleans in search of stories and we are not disappointed. From possessed sleepwalkers, to invisible tormentors, to perhaps the strangest encounter we've ever covered on this show, the Crescent City comes through.
On this episode we share stories of the unexplained as experienced by healthcare professionals - from the Disco Angel of Death to children under the bed, to a story of possession that might, kinda-sorta, be bullshit, if nothing else we've learned that we're too cowardly to work in healthcare.
