Episode 24: The Old Magic of Christmas

From a hot-off-the-presses story about a seemingly impossible occurrence in a hospital to a sharp-toothed Santa, to mysterious chimes and bells signaling from beyond, we have a little something for everyone .

Episode 23: America's Most Haunted Hotels, with Jamie Davis Whitmer

On this American road trip-themed episode, author Jamie Davis Whitmer takes us from lesser known hauntings in Bisbee, Arizona to her own personal encounter with the spirits of the Stanley Hotel and the Queen Mary.

Episode 12: A Strange Little Place, with Brennan Storr

It's a strange little place tucked away in western Canada, and it has a paranormal history stretching back almost 100 years, including everything from ghosts, to UFOs, to gremlins and sasquatch.
