Ep.137 Enders Hotel and Museum

2/21/2024
Who knew Idaho could have some unbelievably spooky places? And we mean unbelievable. Some of the evidence people have found here is almost too good to be true, so then, is it really true? The history was shrouded in mystery on this one, but from what we could find, we'd say this place has a right to be haunted.

Ep.136 Koreshan State Park

2/16/2024
Well, Florida is un/fortunately a treasure trove of interesting things and happenings, and cults really shouldn't have surprised us. Koreshan Unity had a seemingly quick rise and fall in believers. It may have had something to do with the fact that they believed in reincarnation, but when their founder died he wasn't, you know, reincarnated. Whoopsie daisy. The reason for the hauntings in this location are a little vague, but it still proved to have some interesting evidence.

Ep.135 Amos J Blake House Museum

2/8/2024
They say the older the building the more haunted it's likely to be, and with a nearly 200 year old building in a 250 year old town we'd say this is a pretty good place to look. Not only does this museum have a few deaths under it's belt, but each room is filled with long forgotten articles of clothing, furniture, military and medical equipment, and of course it has its fair share of creepy dolls as well. It seems these spirits have plenty of the material world to hang onto.

Ep.134 McCann Manor Poor House

2/1/2024
Holy cow, it's finally happened. After a long dry spell we have finally investigated a location ourselves! This location came to us from a friend of a friend, and we're glad it happened, because this place was a lot. Not knowing initially what to expect this ended up being much bigger and much more daunting than we had prepared for. And that's just the way we like it. Now let's find out if we found ourselves some ghosts.

Ep.133 San Haven Sanitorium

1/25/2024
Sanitorium? Sanitarium? Is there really a difference? Well, that depends on who you ask (of course..) Either way, that's where we are, this time in North Dakota! Sometimes lovingly referred to as the sanitorium of DEATH, this hospital is barely a shell of its formal self, actually recently being condemned due to its unsafe conditions. But those that have been fortunate enough to investigate the grounds all agree on one thing; this place, is HAUNTED. So since we can't visit it any more, let's all live vicariously through The Paranormal Files once more, and see what spooky things they found this time. Spoilers, some scares aren't always paranormal ...

Ep.132 One if by Land, Two if by Sea Restaurant

1/18/2024
New York City is anything but small town America, but we can never resist a good historical background. This building has been around for over 200 years, and has housed one of Americas most notable, and arguably infamous politicians in history. But his temper may have followed him into the afterlife, along with the presence of around 20 other spirits. So what's got these spirits all worked up in one of New York's finest restaurants?

Ep.131 Govan Washington Schoolhouse

1/11/2024
Our first visit in 2024 is to Washington state, and of course the first city that comes to mind would be Govan, right? Don't worry, we hadn't heard of it either, and actually no one has for probably 40+ years. This town is essentially abandoned (aside from a married couple, and a mysterious third resident..). But what has stuck around are the ghosts from multiple unsolved murders, and according to Afterlife Echoes on YouTube, it seems they still have plenty that they need to say.

Ep.130 New Year, New OSTS

1/4/2024
Maybe they're a little cheesy, but we've decided to hold ourselves accountable and fill you guys in on our new years resolutions this year. This podcast has given us so much in the last 3 years, and we want to make sure we're still giving you the content you deserve. So let's just relax with a little lighthearted look into the future, and here's hoping for an even better year in 2024. Thanks, spooky crew!

Ep.129 Shanghai Tunnels

12/28/2023
So, Portland, OR may not be "small town America", but sometimes a haunt is just too god to pass up, and with claims like most haunted place on earth, how could we say no? So down we go, to the Shanghai Tunnels beneath Chinatown in Portland, where they had a little bit of everything. Gambling, drinking, prostitution rings, and kidnapping for enslavement. This time we are living vicariously through @twinparanormal, and boy did they definitely do all of the heavy lifting for us.

Ep.128 Christmas Crimes

Happy holidays, everyone! It's just a few days before Christmas, and nothing says Christmas like talking true crime apparently. We'll cover some lighthearted ones, some dark ones, but all of them revolve around this wonderful time of year.

Ep.127 Centennial Hall Museum

12/14/2023
Well, it seems our (virtual) travels have brought us to the wonderful state of Nebraska this week. We really went with small town America on this one and have found one of the states most haunted locations in Valentine, Centennial Hall Museum. This building stood as a high school first, and that is where our haunted tale begins. And the source of this legend? a clarinet, of course. Who knew that being in the band could be so deadly?

Ep.126 Madison, IN Part 2

12/8/2023
Like the last three Decembers, Kelsey and Madi traveled down to Madison Indiana. And like the last three Decembers, more spooky things fell into their laps. A trip to a local diner led us down another rabbit hole of haunted locations in historic Madison. It seems every time we start to search this location more and more ghosts appear.

Ep.125 East Coast Thanksgiving Ghosts

11/23/2023
Happy Thanksgiving, spooky crew! We’re glad you’ve decided to join us on a little getaway from family/friend shenanigans. This week we are perusing the east coast for legends of Thanksgiving ghosts, and New York and Pennsylvania did not leave us disappointed. Both involving railroads, one with an annual appearance, and one, if proven true, the largest mass murder in the state’s history, there is no shortage of fuel for ghostly hauntings. So grab a plate or two, and let’s get to it.

Ep.124 Joliet Prison

11/16/2023
Welcome to another rousing episode of Or So They Say, where this week we take you to our neighbors to the WEST (not the east, Kelsey), Illinois! This is actually a location we have considered investigating in the past, but now it's a little questionable if that's even an option? Who knows, but the Joliet Prison actually packed some pretty spooky punches, even for us. There's a lot of goosebumps to go around this time, so brace yourselves.

Ep.123 Skinwalker Valley

11/9/2023
Yes, this is actually the name of the place. There's even a skinwalker ranch right next to it! So why did it get that name? Well, obviously because of all of the skinwalkers that creep around there at night. Rooted in Native American legend, these skinwalkers have been cursed to be here, and if you ask some people, they're definitely still hanging around. We're living vicariously through The Paranormal Files as they spend hours alone in the middle of the valley, and let's just say we're glad it was them and not us.

Ep.120 McKamey Manor

10/5/2023
Well, happy Thursday? With an episode like this, we're not really sure, but let's try to make the best of it shall we? Life is a bit hectic at the moment, so this isn't actually a place we visited, but honestly we're not even a little mad about it. Is it haunted? Maybe not, but is it spooky for literally every wrong reason? Absolutely. There is a trigger warning for this one, and the TW is this: yes. Honestly, she's gross, so just try not to think too much about it, and we'll get through this together.

Whelp, better late than never. We didn't want to leave you hanging on the last state in our US alphabetical tour! So we brought you this gem from Buffalo, WY.

We've got all sorts of ghosts here with lots of back stories, and somehow in the midst of all the spookiness we still found something to be emotional about.
