    Castle of Spirits Audio Ghost Stories Podcast #14

    Happy Halloween and welcome to episode 14. Tonight I have four stories from the website - Warned of Untimely Death, Mysterious Gardener, Ghosts of Crosbie Towers, and Haunted TV Station. As well, I do a somewhat over-the-top narration of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven... so listen if you dare. :)


    I also want to give a shout-out to Karina Machado, who is re-releasing her book Spirit Sisters in January. It's an excellent book, I highly recommend it. If you want to pre-order a copy, please visit https://www.hachette.com.au/karina-machado/spirit-sisters-australian-women-reveal-true-life-stories-of-the-paranormal

    Castle of Spirits Audio Ghost Stories Podcast #13

    Hi all! It's lucky episode 13 of the podcast. :) Tonight I have a little glimpse of what I hope the podcast can be, I hired a guest narrator for the first story, Our Bedroom Guest. The story is narrated by Admanda Atkins from Fiverr.com, I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do. 


    The other two stories are Angry Ghost on the Stairs and one that I had a little fun with, Funny Ghost Story. Enjoy!

The last warning. ,

Thank you, Don Wilmhurst

All too often I’m in search of a decent ghost story podcast but am regularly disappointed by the plethora of half-baked ghoulish tales in which rattling chain or carnival fun-house sound effects equate to “scary”. Which is why I’m so glad to have come across an excellent podcast such as this.

The sound effects are of good quality and the background music (when available) set the atmosphere for an afternoon of overcast showers and a warm brew. The narrations are sometimes provided by Don himself or by another voice actor, which provides a fresh execution of each tale. Above all, I’m very pleased that none of the narrators “embellish” their tone when recounting the stories. (Don’t get me wrong, the right execution of tone can turn a chilling tall-tale into a fantastic one. But a awful tone can just as easily ruin it.)

Admittedly, I’m a podcast hoarder, and tend to stockpile new episodes until October so I can binge. Especially when my favorite podcasts sometimes halt episode releases. Not very helpful for listener reliability for the creators, I know, but I can’t help it.

That being said, like the magpie that I am, collecting little treasures for my nest, I encourage anyone in the mood of a eerie listen to look no further.

I found the online website back in the mid 1990’s. It was a joy to read 1st hand ghost experiences. Turning the content into a podcast is awesome! Thank you for your hard work You’re doing a wonderful job.

Love it!!!

Just found this podcast yesterday and have listened to them all! So upset there aren’t more! From the stories to the sound effects, it’s perfect. I don’t get scared easily, but I even got a bit creeped out. Highly recommend!
