Never thought I’d enjoy a show like this!
Awesome intro! Michelle has great pacing and quality content. I find it relaxing and spooky all at the same time, like sitting around a camp fire with friends or family sharing spooky stories. Keep up the good work!
As a dedicated paranormal podcast listener, I’ve recently found myself frustrated with some of the hosts and shows that can be found. Most times I skip episodes after :20 because they’re laughing loud like 13 year olds into the mic, or are just crazy people getting a chance to rant.
This podcast is nothing like that. I’m a huge fan, Michelle seems genuine and keeps me hooked on the topic with her credible sense of passion for these topics. Plus I’m a pet lover, so anyone that shares that passion gets an A in my book! Thank you for restoring my faith in the podcast life, your rock, and keep on keepin on!
Great for lovers of animals and the paranormal
Do you love animals and the paranormal as much as I do? Then this podcast is for you! This podcast takes a refreshing spin on the paranormal by telling spooky stories and legends strictly about animals. It’s fun to listen to and the host is very passionate at what she does and I recommend this to anyone looking for something new and spooky!
