S4 Ep. 5: Razzle-Dazzle Demons

How can you explain away a paranormal experience as sleep paralysis when it seemed so real? Can you be sued if you fail to disclose your house is haunted before selling it? This week, Katie continues her tale of the shadow man with a part 2 that will blow your mind. Janine takes us to Nyack, NY and the Haunted House on the Hudson (a story featured in the May 1977 issue of Reader's Digest.)

This episode contains talk of demonic possession, creepy "demon fuckers," a little of the 'ol razzle-dazzle, a haunted Victorian-era home, and some gifty ghosts.

This week, Janine and Katie read listener stories that range from the creepy to the bizarre. This episode contains ghostly screams over a radio station, a creepy apartment that was once a hospital in the 1800's, a residual haunting and a call for advice, a ghostly little boy with a wolf familiar, a haunting directly linked to a murder, and the laughter of children on a dark, cold night in the middle of nowhere. Turn on all the lights. Make sure your doors and windows are locked tight. Shit's about to get spooky.

S4 Ep. 1: Runaway Train

We’ve got a new face and a new name, but we’re still filled to the brim with humor and creepy shit!

Welcome back for Season 4!

In S4 Ep. 1: Runaway Train, Janine takes us to Showmen’s Rest at Woodlawn Cemetery in Forest Park, IL, a monument to one of the worst circus train accidents in history. Katie paralyzes us with the very unnerving experience (and science) of sleep paralysis.

This episode contains culty excuses, disappointing lip gloss, ghostly elephants and apparitions, and a cemetery circus tribute.
