Missypeeps ,

Like an afternoon with spooky friends

Listening to these two friends share tales of weirdness from Essex is like being party to an intriguing chat in a warm country pub. Thanks for your thorough research and easy way of conveying these eerie tales.

Love this pair!

It‚Äôs always a fun listen and lots of interesting content. The ‚Äėbants‚Äô is of a consistently high standard ūüėĚ and I keep coming back for more.

TheFaerieFolk ,

Highly Recommend

Eerie Essex is such a fun listen. I love the podcast’s focus on Essex’s ghosts and folklore and the enthusiasm Bethan and Alisa bring to every episode. The Danny Robbins episode is a stand out favourite of mine. I definitely recommend listening to this podcast if you haven’t already!
