S5E84: I don’t know what comes next…

What draws you to the paranormal, the haunted? Maybe you’ve experienced something for yourself – something you’ve spent years trying to write off as a coincidence despite a little voice in your ear telling you to look deeper into it; go on; you know you want to. Maybe it’s something you want to experience but never have, you urban explorers and paranormal investigators out there. Perhaps you’re a skeptic who likes a good story and a strong shiver down your spine – don’t worry, we won’t judge as long as you don’t.

Haunted Stores in Mexico E118

If you’ve been to Mexico or anywhere in Latin America, chances are you’ve been in a tienda Oxxo. These are the largest chain of convenience stores in all of Latin America and maybe even the most haunted. In today’s episode, Cristina and MJ talk about paranormal stories that take place in different Oxxo stores in Mexico, a haunted piñata store in Guadalajara, Mexico, and a haunted cafe. Oh, and of course, they had to mention Stockton, California’s own haunted Burlington Coat Factory. Cristina and MJ share these stories, have some laughs, and share their spooky recommendations, but first, Cristina reads a listener story.

S4E72 – The Knocking Moved From Window to Window

The days might be longer now, but the nights are certainly darker. Summer nights hold a different kind of chill in the air, and I’m so glad that several of these stories are just the perfect sort to tell around a campfire. From strange encounters by the roadside to cabins in the woods to haunted cemetery grounds, we’ve pulled together some classic summer camp ghost stories for you that are guaranteed to send a chill down your spine in this warm weather.

S4E68 – It Feels Real…

Typically when unexplained phenomena occur to us, our first thought is to be afraid, whether due to sensational films or a natural survival reaction. We have a choice to make to either continue existing with the paranormal or do something about it. Today’s episode contains stories about tellers who question if the entity is good or evil and what should be done with it. Okay, ready to get spooked?

S4E66 – She Needed Help

For centuries humans have been telling stories to teach or find like-minded companions. We tell ghost stories to spook each other and to find hope that we are not alone in what we experience. That we’re not losing our minds. Today’s episode is brimming with tales of people lucky enough to have witnessed unfortunate people who wished they weren’t alone.

S5E63 – I NEVER Have to Go There Again…

They say seeing is believing, but what if you saw it and heard it and lived it but you still can’t believe it? It’s so hard to accept paranormal experiences as real, but when it happens to you, what else can you do but believe it as real? Sometimes it’s so hard to believe what happened really did happen because it was so fantastical and unreal.
