    "A ghost saved me from a murderer"

    "A ghost saved me from a murderer"

    Our guest today has a chilling story to share about an unforgettable chain of events that took place in 1969, when she was 12 years old and living with her family in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Coral had an experience that has stayed with her for life, and it demonstrates that, in an otherworldly encounter, as much as in everyday life, things aren’t always as they might at first appear… For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Anita is a travel agent from Toowoomba and she’s joining us today to share the story of some very unsettling events that took place in an old Queenslander in Townsville, where Anita moved with her parents and older brother and sister when she was 9 years old. 


    These experiences mostly affected Anita’s parents, especially her father, who’s now 83 and prefers to not speak of what happened. In the end, the family only lasted 12 months in the home, and you’re about to find out why. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    "I hear dead people"

    "I hear dead people"

    On the surface, Ben Carn, who’s 27, lives a pleasant and seemingly ordinary life. He is a spray-painter by trade, and lives with his partner and their sweet two-year old son at their home in Rankin Springs, NSW. But there’s something about Ben: he is clairaudient. That means he can hear the voices of the dead, who come to him with messages and guidance.

    "What six past lives have taught me"

    "What six past lives have taught me"

    From at least the age of 4, my guest, Tegan Vandenberg, has been close to the spirit world. As a little girl, she could accurately predict events that would befall those around her, and has always been able to sense and see spirit people, both in her dreams and waking life. These gifts followed Tegan into her adult years.


    Tegan has also always felt drawn to the topic of past lives, and has a deeply felt affinity with medieval times, in particular. Yet despite her fascination with the idea, she didn’t take steps to delve deeper until May 2019, when a challenging time in her life prompted her to seek a past-life regression. You’ll be astounded when you hear what happened next...

Happy accident

I have just found your podcast, by accident actually, I thought it was true crime! Lol

As it turns out, it was my best tech accident yet! I really enjoy hearing people’s stories. I too have had experiences with the paranormal since I was young! It’s great to know I’m not alone.
