    Episode 49: Clack Backs And Jeebs Of The Heebs Variety (Haunted Anoka State Hospital)

    Episode 49: Clack Backs And Jeebs Of The Heebs Variety (Haunted Anoka State Hospital)

    In this week's episode, Abby takes a deep dive into the history of the haunted Anoka State Hospital, located in Anoka, Minnesota.
    Originally named the Anoka State Asylum upon opening in 1900, the hospital housed thousands of patients during its time, providing a place to live for the mentally ill. However, the public would soon come to know of the horrible living conditions and treatment the patients at Anoka State Hospital were enduring, eventually leading to mental health reform and the closing of the hospital. But the residents of Anoka and brave ghost bros on YouTube say the spirits of the State hospital's wards never left the property and haunt it to this day.
    Tune in to hear more ghostly encounters!

Totally anxious and afraid!

I discovered this podcast following a recommendation and ended up binging the series!
The hosts are great fun and make you feel like you’re spending time with old friends! The content is varied and well researched ensuring you’re keen to keep listening each week.
Well worth a listen and subscribe.

But It Was Aliens podcast Kev ,

Amazing show on the strange and unexplained

I enjoyed this podcast so much I actually made notes to include in this review! These folks have absolutely brilliant chemistry which is so important in a podcast. The hosts are all really, really likeable (we'd happily buy them all a beer/cuppa tea if we bumped in to them). The show consists of thorough research with a light-hearted take. Genuinely really enjoyed this and will be subscribing - almost as if it was made for us (ours is weirdly similar). Brilliant stuff.

We too would want money if our alien experiences leaked haha!
