    S4. Case 4: The Hairy Man

    Tribal elder Fred and his cousin and uncle are travelling through the Alaskan wilderness when they are surrounded in their cabin by terrifying creatures resembling the “Hairy Man” legend they were always warned about as kids.

    S4. Case 3: The Platte County Poltergeist

    Lisa and her young family build their dream home in rural Missouri. Before they’ve even unpacked, strange events begin. Lights switch themselves on each night, footsteps echo around empty rooms, objects move by themselves.
    As events escalate, is Lisa imagining things or is someone living there alongside them? And how can a brand-new house be haunted?

    S4. Case 2: Dad's Phone

    S4. Case 2: Dad's Phone

    Wendy’s father Harry was a British Spitfire pilot during World War II who moved to Texas to work in espionage. When he becomes ill with cancer, he promises Wendy that if there is life after death, he will reach out to her. This isn’t that comforting, their relationship has always been difficult - Harry used many of the espionage techniques he was schooled in to control and monitor Wendy, like a real-life version of Robert De Niro’s character in Meet the Parents.
    When Harry dies, Wendy moves into his house in Austin and then… her Dad’s phone begins to ring by itself. It's disconnected, what's happening is impossible, so is this Harry reaching out? And what will it take to make him let go?

    S4. Case 1: The Flood

    Marcus loves visiting his eccentric Aunt Jean, the black sheep of a very religious family. She runs a witch shop in New Orleans, selling spells, candles and Ouija boards. When Aunt Jean tragically dies in Hurricane Katrina, drowned in the basement of her own flat, her possessions end up at Marcus’s granddad’s house in South Georgia.
    One night Marcus and his cousin dig them out and find her prized Ouija board. What will happen if they try to make contact with her? The answer, it turns out, is that all hell breaks loose.
    Danny heads to Georgia to meet Marcus and hears about the most terrifying night of his life.

Unbeatable Format and Amazing Host

Without a doubt, the best paranormal podcast (and now TV show) I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I can’t get enough. Danny’s passion for the subject coupled with the style and professional approach of the format is unbeatable. If other shows about the paranormal were this good the genre would have a stellar reputation. Couldn’t recommend more!

Genuinely terrifying

A lot of spooky/supernatural/paranormal podcasts talk a really big game and are such a let down to listen to but not Uncanny. Danny is a great host who has a knack for getting the most out of his guests and their stories. Definitely a podcast that you’ll hesitate to listen to when home alone at night and will absolutely give you chills down your spine.
