In this week’s episode, I share stories about mistaken identity. First, I read a true account of a young woman who was visited in the middle of the night by a spirit that looked like her sister. Then, I speak with Pete Benavides, who recalls seeing something that took the appearance of his father. Next, I share a story about a girl who kept getting blamed for things a spirit was doing in their home. And finally, Derek from the Stories After Dark podcast tells us the tale of Teresita Basa, the woman who helped solve her own murder.

Sounds From Beyond (with Lanser Howard, Choz Belen)

Clairaudience: the ability to hear what other's cannot. Sometimes it can be voices, footsteps, or music. Sound plays a big role in many paranormal occurrences, but is it just our ears playing tricks on us? Or perhaps malfunctioning radios? ...Or is it something much more? In this week's episode, I speak with 2 people who have both had very significant experiences involving unexplainable sounds.

Territory

Podcast cover
Read more

Humans, by nature, are territorial creatures. Whether it’s a seat at a coffee shop or our lane on the freeway, we make it known with our bags or car horns when we have claimed a space. But there are non human entities that are territorial as well. So what happens when humans and spirits claim the same space? Who does it truly belong to? On this week’s episode, I’ll be sharing stories that discuss the concept of territory.

First, I read a true story about a fishpond business in the Philippines that houses a spirit that refuses to leave. Then, we’ll hear from Greg Mania, who worked at a consignment shop with an easily disturbed resident. And finally, I share a true story about a boy whose life was changed when he witnessed the Smoke Man.

Inhuman

Podcast cover
Read more

What comes to mind when I say the word “ghost”? For most people, a ghost is the spirit of a person who has passed. But ghosts are not limited to that one definition. They can be an energy stealing force, the personification of unresolved trauma, or the representation of our mental state. In this episode, I’ll be sharing real stories from real people who have encountered these types of inhuman ghosts. First, I read the story of a witch who was in a budding relationship that was more than toxic. Then, we’ll hear of a mysterious entity that’s been following someone around for years. And finally, I speak with a man who seems to attract spirits of all kinds.

There is nothing more classically horror than a haunted house. The thought of your safe space being invaded by an otherworldly force is enough to make anyone lose sleep. This week’s episode is dedicated to those who have had to deal with uninvited house guests.

First, I speak with a woman who kept finding things in her apartment rearranged every time she would return home. Then, we’ll learn about a man named Mr. Smith. And finally, we’ll visit a home in Michigan with a restless presence.

When the sun goes down and the moon controls the sky, it’s almost as if the rules of our physical world change.

Stories For Change: The Black Experience in the Horror Genre

Podcast cover
Read more

American history is a horror story - for Black people, indigenous people, and people of color. And yet mainstream horror cinema has vastly left these groups out of the picture, both on and behind the screen. In this week’s episode, I speak with horror writer Johnny Compton about why that might be, and how we can change that.
