Rank #7: Episode Three: The Bayou

Podcast cover

The third entry from the journals tells of an incident that took place in the Louisiana bayou during the 1990's. The story is terrifying, but it's the scientific explanations included that really get Addison's attention. Including an interview with Dr. Regina Dewars of the International Foundation for the Study of Paranormal Phenomena and a weird voicemail from someone who claims to know something about what happened all those years ago in Camden, this episode is a long one... but worth it.
