    337: Swamp Monsters & Giants | Dark Waters

    In Episode 337: Swamp Monsters & Giants, we are joined by my friend Dark Waters! DW has been a guest on The Confessionals a few times previously as part of our Think Tank discussion groups, and he joins us now to share some of the personal experiences from his childhood that sparked his interest in the paranormal world. In the first segment of Episode 337, we discuss the swamps of Louisiana, and how recent storms there have rendered areas accessible that were previously out of reach – and probably for good reason! From bizarre monsters happened upon by fishermen to giants as tall as trees, these swamps hold many secrets that are only now becoming known. In an Overtime segment, we continue our discussion as DW recalls one of the most dramatic demonic experiences he has ever gone through.BECOME A MEMBER AND GET ADDITIONAL SHOWS: https://www.theconfessionalspodcast.com/joinSPONSORSGET Hello Fresh: https://hellofresh.com/12tony Promo Code: "12tony" for 12 FREE MEALS!!!GET StoryWorth: https://storyworth.com/confessionalsGET SIMPLISAFE TODAY: https://simplisafe.com/confessionalsGet Emergency Food Supplies: http://www.preparewiththeconfessionals.comGet Beard Oil: https://bit.ly/2FbOhN5CONNECT WITH USWebsite: www.theconfessionalspodcast.comEmail: theconfessionalspodcast@gmail.comText Community: Text "YUP" to 844-215-0819

    335: Dog vs Dogman

    335: Dog vs Dogman

    In Episode 335: Dog vs Dogman, we are joined by Kyle who shares the most dramatic dogman experience ever sent to The Confessionals! Kyle was born and raised in Kentucky, and became a coon hunter at a very young age. When he was 15 years old, he and his grandfather set out for a night of hunting raccoons with their dogs Bow and Jake. Little did Kyle know that on this night, his life was going to change forever. The dogs treed a coon when a pack of coyotes moved in to challenge the hunting dogs. There was a strong battle of dominance, and when Kyle finally arrived at the scene he saw Jake standing strong with coyotes on the run. He then heard what he thought was his dog Bow on the other side of a large tree, chomping on a coyote. But, when he circled around to find Bow, he came face to face with a monstrous beast that towered over him. This is where Kyle's life changed forever, as a bloodthirsty dogman took chase after him, and a battle of dog versus dogman took place! Kyle's story of survival truly defied the odds with those two kinds of dogs in the woods that night - one was man's best friend, the other was man's worst nightmare.

    333: Ghost Of The USS Forrestal

    333: Ghost Of The USS Forrestal

    In Episode 333: Ghost Of The USS Forrestal, we are joined in the studio by Tony’s Uncle Mark as he discusses being stationed aboard the haunted USS Forrestal while serving in the Navy. The USS Forrestal experienced a tragedy in the 1960s when a missile was mistakenly launched onboard, resulting in many fires that claimed the lives of over 160 men. One of the men who escaped death that day, only to be captured as a POW a few weeks later, was none other than former senator John McCain. Needless to say, this aircraft carrier has sailed with tragic baggage throughout its history. As time passed, rumors circulated of apparitions of past sailors appearing on the ship; one was even seen so often that the crew named him George. Mark shares some ghost stories with us and describes what life out at sea was like for all those years. We discuss why he believes he never witnessed a UFO despite his many years at sea, and he also tells us about living with his family in a haunted house in Massachusetts, where a former owner died and odd things occurred. As a journalist in the Navy with over 20 years of service, Mark decided to pursue novel writing once he retired. He is now the established author of a book trilogy called the “Forever Avalon” series. Combining experiences from his Navy service with his love for sci-fi, he created a fantasy world that begins when a storm slams into a ship and pushes the characters onto an uncharted island – but not just any island. The family finds themselves in another world frozen in time, on the magical island of Avalon, a place of eternal magic where the descendants of King Arthur rule. And this is just where the “Forever Avalon” series begins!

    331: The Devil's In The Music

    331: The Devil's In The Music

    In Episode 331: The Devil's In The Music, we are joined by Joel who is one half of the new music group called VanTesla. VanTesla flew into Philadelphia to record multiple shows in the studio with me, both for The Confessionals and for my radio show Rage Against Dystopia, which will broadcast on Tuesday (4/20/21) at 8pm EST only on Fringe.FM.Joel and I sat down to talk about the paranormal experiences he has been through in his life. He begins by sharing how his father almost got sucked into a Satanic cult while he was in college, and how those experiences changed his life's trajectory to become a pastor. Though he grew up with his dad warning him of the dangers that lay in the darkness, Joel decided to take his own path. He dated a woman who practiced the dark arts, and the baggage she carried spilled into their relationship to the point that she became demonically possessed, as a demon took control of her body to speak to Joel. Joel became more deeply involved in music, which lead him to become a Free Mason in an attempt to gain power and fortune. He shares his experiences as a Free Mason in the "Overtime" segment of Episode 331, available for members on the member site, as well as his bizarre UFO encounter that caused me to wonder if he had seen several ships returning to a mother ship with abductees.

    329: Wendigo Sighting

    329: Wendigo Sighting

    In Episode 329: Wendigo Sighting, we have a mixed bag show featuring guests Austin and Nick sharing their different experiences. First, Austin tells us about what seems to be a wendigo sighting that happened as he was driving. He describes seeing a deer on the side of the road, but when he began to slow down, it stood up on its hind legs and sprinted after his car! Following Austin's encounter, we are joined by Nick, who started investigating the Washoe Club in Virginia City to essentially disprove findings made by the Ghost Adventures crew. He went there three separate times, but the last one ended up showing him that Zak Bagans and the team from Ghost Adventures were not exaggerating their claims!BECOME A MEMBER AND GET ADDITIONAL SHOWS: https://www.theconfessionalspodcast.com/joinSPONSORS:GET FEALS: https://feals.com/tonyGET SIMPLISAFE TODAY: https://simplisafe.com/confessionalsGet Emergency Food Supplies: http://www.preparewiththeconfessionals.comGet Beard Oil: https://bit.ly/2FbOhN5CONNECT WITH US:Website: www.theconfessionalspodcast.comEmail: theconfessionalspodcast@gmail.comText Community: Text "YUP" to 844-215-0819

Awesome.

Love the show. It’s the best when people can just share their experiences and it’s left up to the listener’s beliefs after that. Just lay out what happened, and that’s it. All these people can’t be lying can they? Impossible. Much respect from BC, Canada.

An exploration of the strange and eerie

I love listening to Tony’s interviews before bed! Probably not the best advice, but I’m always left with a deep feeling of awe and wonder as to what is possible in the world. I love his ability to just let the narrative flow and meet the story teller where they are. Keep it up!

Unimpressed

I did a show with him, then he never responded to another email or anything and just blew me off, it was hard opening up it was a difficult story to tell to just be completely blown off is very confusing, I told the 100% truth I don’t get it but it was extremely rude and cowardly in my viewpoint
