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!

    It Begins:
    Since the land first began to breathe, Australia has been a place of dreamlike mystery.

    When the European settlers first arrived, they were told stories from native peoples, of the unnatural things waiting in the dark, hungry and hoping to snatch a wayward soul.

    But as decades pass, the whispers of strange and horrifying encounters that once stirred along the currents of the desert wind and through the boughs of the Eucalyptus in the Pilliga have settled in the dust (bush) and long been forgotten.

    But as the Aborigines know, the land remembers.

    From a mysterious phone call recounting a terrifying abduction by a freakish leg collecting beast (creature) to the sinister UFO Abduction case of Kelly Cahill with cloaked soul stealing beings, hunting humans in the night.

    Join us on this walk about into the unknown as we explore historical accounts, find patterns in the bush, and endeavor to uncover true tales of horror in the land down under.

    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.

Love it!!

Love it 100%! From the intro music to the content and the clever banter, this show is now on the top of my list. It’s funny, dramatic, intriguing, and mildly unnerving. I’m hooked! I just hope they eventually do some merchandise.

Best paranormal podcast!

I just discovered this podcast and after listening to many different paranormal ones over the years, I have to say this is the best. I love the format of telling real different stories rather than just interviewing guests. The production value is excellent. The creepy music they play throughout the show increases the scare factor and makes you feel like you’re there. I love that it’s 3 brothers that do the podcast together; their banter is entertaining. They also have so many interesting topics. Looking forward to listening to them all!
