From Paradise to Hell, Haunted Mitten has all the ghost stories in Michigan

    Haunted Universities and Colleges Part 2

    Haunted Universities and Colleges Part 2

    We're back with a few more haunted universities and colleges! The first is Aquinas College, named after Saint Thomas. The second is Baker College, known for its many campuses. The third is Northern Michigan University, which we give a new nickname that is totally going to catch on, and last but not least is Siena Heights University, because somehow we got on a Catholic theme.


    As always, find us on social media @hauntedmitten


    WE HAVE A PATREON!! Go to patreon.com/hauntedmitten and become a patron to get exclusive content every month! The first ten patrons get a super cool ghost pin (it glows in the dark)!

    The Paulding Light

    The Paulding Light

    This week's episode is on the Paulding Light! Located between Paulding and Watersmeet, Michigan, the Paulding Light is a mysterious light (or group of lights) seen with consistency since the 1960's. While its origin is unknown, and its changed over the years, the light is viewed by hundreds, if not thousands, of people a year- including us! We talk about our experience visiting it, the possible origins, and whether or not it's an illusion. Plus, a youtube channel about retirees and their RV!

A great listen

I love the conversational way the hosts discuss the topics in the friendly way. They speak to one another in a kind humorous way that is different than many other podcasts that really makes this a pleasant podcast to listen to while you’re working or driving

Spooky

It’s awesome as a person who’s moved away from Michigan to get to hear familiar accents and stories about familiar places! I hope y’all do an episode about Purgatory down in Constantine/Three Rivers Area!

Fun, interesting, entertaining

... but don’t listen to at night. Lol!
I’m really enjoying this podcast. I’m excited to hear about these spooky sights in Michigan and the ghosts in them. I thought this would scare me a lot more, but the way they tell the stories makes me feel like even if ghosts are there, it’s okay. But maybe that’s because I’m listening to their personal stories right now! Lol. But they seem pretty knowledgeable about the sites their looking into and not about to believe everything they’re told or read. This is definitely something they're into and spent time researching. I’m excited for this podcast! Thanks y’all!!’
