Latest Episodes

Don't go Changeling on me Now

EOn episode forty-three, Whitney kicks off the true crime portion of the show with a story that is both true crime and a bit paranormal (depending on how you look at it). Bridget Cleary was an Irish woman who was murdered by her husband in the late 1800s, but the the most curious part of the story comes into play when you hear his explanation as to why he did it. After that, Ty opens up the paranormal half of the show with his story about Ashmore Estates. Once upon a time, this facility operated as the Coles County poor farm in Ashmore, IL. The tenants, or inmates as they were sometimes referred to, endured so many tumultuous changes and harsh living conditions that many believe they still reside there. So settle in, turn out the lights, and get ready to take some shots in the dark with us. Cheers!

Todd Kohlhepp and Trenton Psychiatric Hospital

EOn episode forty-two, Ty kicks off the true crime portion of the show with the story of Todd Kohlhepp. This case not only involves a series of murders that went either unsolved or undiscovered for years, but also a tale of survival.

The Truck Stop Killer and Myrtles Plantation

EOn episode forty-one, Whitney kicks off the true crime portion of the show with a story about the truck stop killer. This case was recommended to us by our friend Leah, and it's as horrific as it is fascinating. After that, Ty opens up the paranormal half of the show with his story about the famously haunted Myrtles plantation. Myrtles is home to several different spirits, but the most widely known (and perhaps saddest) is the spirit of a former slave named Chloe. So settle in, turn out the lights, and get ready to take some shots in the dark with us. Cheers!

The Tsuyama Massacre and The Ear Inn

After that, Whitney opens up the paranormal half of the show with her story about The Ear Inn. On top of having a long history of serving merchants, sailors, and artists, The Ear Inn now serves patrons looking for food and drink... and perhaps a fright.
