Through deep research and high-strangeness storytelling, three brothers explore paranormal encounters and unexplained events. Collecting freaky listener stories and scouring the dusty pages of classic Fortean texts, the brothers use high-production sound design to set the scene for alleged real encounters with, Dogman, Poltergeists, Bigfoot, Fairy Folk, Humanoids, UFOs, Shadow People, and Sky Creatures.. just to name a few.

Attempting to parse out the facts within folklore, the brothers of the Hole banter about everything from bizarre historical mysteries to emerging clandestine conspiracy theories, often challenging their own beliefs and sometimes each other's sanity. Good humor, good drinks, and good discussion! Have you ever overheard a co-worker shakily tell his story of a real encounter with a Dogman? Has your friend or weird uncle told you about his close encounter with a reptilian humanoid from the sewer? Looking to corroborate your grandma's true ghost stories? Were you born with a thirst for the mysterious? Well, sit back and pour yourself a big glass from the Belief Hole, my friend, and help us dig the weird!

    Alaska. A land of wild beauty, rugged magic, and burried secrets. Throughout it’s marbled history, strange reports have been drifiting from Alaska’s cold and cryptic embrace. Tales of sky giants - crafts that slip from serene seas and into the arctic atmosphere above. They creep behind volcanic islands which jut skyward from their chilly seat in the Alaskan bays and kodiak coves.

    What do these sky lurkers want? What are they hunting? Are they living right beneath us?

    From flying saucers that rip whales from the sea, to reports of a secret underground black pyramid, wedged in the ice and crackling with unkown energy, join us on this episode of Belief Hole, as we correlate native lore, historical accounts, and whistleblower testimony, to thaw the mystery and illuminate the hidden world of dark Alaska.

    New Episodes coming this weekend!
    Jutting into the Bay on the southern tip of the Kenia Peninsula is the mysterious ghost town of Portlock, Alaska. Legend has it that this once peaceful and successful canary town, hugging the coast of Chatham Bay, fell victim to a primal (perhaps supernatural) darkness between the 1920s and 1940s, suffering bizarre tragedies and disappearances, which culminated in the shuttering and abandonment of the town around 1950. And there it sits to this day. Like a Ghost.

    Some say it was a natural transition. Others, including some locals and natives of the area, lay the blame at the Nantinaq - a fearsome and elusive creature from Aleut legend.

    From murdered loggers to giants in the woods, we dig through the original sources to get to the heart of this hairy darkness. So, get out your Belief Hole compass and set a course with us for Alaska Bay as we explore this haunting mystery, trying to separate fact from fiction in the terrifying legend of Portlock Alaska.

    ⏰Timestamps Coming!

    6 7 | Barks from Beyond - Pet Visitation from the Other Side | For Jake

     🐺 Youtube Premiere Tonight 8pm EST https://youtu.be/3zT55TvVvqY - Come have a good cry with other Belieflings in the LiveChat.Hey guys. This was a really hard one for us. We're all pretty emotionally drained producing this episode after the sudden loss of Jake 🐺. While we'll be absent from the LiveChat tonight, we know the Hole community doesn't need us to thrive, so the Premiere and LiveChat is still on for those looking to hang 👊

    Now onto the show...It's a heavy one, but hope you guys dig it.
    -------

    Sometimes, life blindsides you. You might lose someone very close. And in the search for answers, you are pulled further toward the greatest mystery of all. The reality of a life after this.

    This was a unique and difficult episode. A few days before recording, Jon’s dog, loyal companion, and best friend of the last 9 years, unexpectedly past away. And out of that sadness, we wanted to honor him by exploring hopeful encounters with the miraculous, and messages from beloved animals that pass away all too soon, who occasionally reach back with a furry high five, and a bark from beyond the veil.

    This episode of Belief Hole is dedicated to the mascot of the show, and a very much missed friend, Jake 🐺❤️

    🔗 https://youtu.be/shalI85Bm5c

    Hey Gang! Join us tonight - in the lands between - where we'll be investigating the strange ether that lingers in Liminal Spaces and tethers the unknown to enchanting places: Dead Malls, Airport Terminals, Hotel Hallways, The Freakin Beach! - These are places of transition, harnessed energy, and home to the often encountered Uncanny. This is gonna be a fun one!

    Come Hang Out 👊 : https://youtu.be/shalI85Bm5c
    ------

    There ARE places, that exist as ghosts: an abandoned shopping mall, its once bustling food courts now silent, or an empty amusement park where the laughter of children is now only echoed by creaking steel in a lonely wind. These are places in transition, neither fully here nor there, where the divide between the mundane and the mystical is thinning.

    What lurks in the shadows of these spaces? Are they merely unsettled landscapes disappearing in time, or can they serve as literal gateways to the beyond?

    From childhood imposters encountered in uncanny lands, to stalking doppelgängers on your routine bus ride, join on us as we uncover unsettling accounts in liminal spaces- and explore the boundary-lands that exist at the edge of worlds, those both known and yet to be discovered

My new favorite Podcast!

This the only podcast where the thank you shout outs are actually entertaining! You guys are hilarious and your content and delivery keep me engaged from beginning to end. Great work!

FunkyCricket ,

Love love LOVE!!!

A previous reviewer said this podcast is art. I couldn’t agree more! I found you guys while driving for a living trying to find some creepy campfire like stories to listen to when the radio got boring. That was waaaay back at your very first listener stories episode! Signed up for your patreon that same day! Been listening for a long time now and somehow you guys keep getting better and better. The soundscapes, story telling, etc. make this podcast incredibly immersive, entertaining, and beautiful.

Wildelife96 ,

This is my comfort podcast

I love this podcast so much! I binged the episodes and the archived and expansion ones too and I’ve relistened and now I have it playing in the background like a sitcom. You guys are so awesome and you’ve evolved so much and it’s beautiful! Idk if you guys read these but don’t listen to comments that say you rant too much or complain about the sound effects. It’s just not the genre of podcast for them! I love the rants and the sounds are magic! This podcast is art!
