    Ep. 527 - Minersville Mansion

    The Minersville Mansion is located in Minersville, Pennsylvania and is known by locals as the DiNicola Mansion as it was owned by Dr. Arthur DiNicola who ran his practice out of the home. The mansion has stood for over a hundred years and had a series of medical professionals who owned it and today is used as an apartment building. Author and paranormal investigator Jeffrey A. Dengler wrote the book "The Minersville Mansion" after spending time investigating the house. He joins us on this episode as we share the history and hauntings of the Minersville Mansion and some of the experiences he has had investigating other locations. We also have a few EVPs at the end of this episode. The Moment in Oddity features Lake Hillier and This Month in History features the birth of William 'Buffalo Bill' Cody.

    Haunted Gift Shop, Train Wrecks and Brewery Spooks

    Paranormal Conversations are random, off-the-cuff discussions on all things paranormal. On this 16th Paranormal Conversation, our listener and Executive Producer Dolores joins us to share the unexplained activity that has occurred at her gift shop in Wake Forest, North Carolina. This is Southern Suds & Gifts and is located at 213 S. White Street. Based on her experiences, Dolores decided to ask other small business owners in the area if they had any unusual things going on in their establishments and before long she had enough information to launch their own seasonal ghost tours in Wake Forest. Dolores shares some of the tales they share on these tours as well.

    Ep. 526 - The Life and Afterlife of Superman, George Reeves

    Ep. 526 - The Life and Afterlife of Superman, George Reeves

    Superman is a beloved comicbook hero. He's all about truth and justice. Clark Kent, his alter ego, is a lovable nerd. Filling his shoes isn't easy, but George Reeves managed to do it and he did it well. But not because his own life reflected the ideal that Superman exuded. Reeves' life was complicated. And it came to an abrupt end when he was just 45-years-old in 1959. The death of George Reeves is a controversial topic. The coroner’s report ruled that the final results indicated that Reeves had committed suicide. Many people do not agree with that assessment. Could this have been murder? And is that mystery possibly why George Reeves' spirit seems to be at unrest. The Moment in Oddity features Convict Baseball and This Month in History features the Daytona 500 Inaugural Race.

    Aokigahara Forest Redux

    Aokigahara Forest Redux

    At the base of Mount Fuji in Japan lies a forest that is 14 square miles in size and is referred to by some as the Sea of Trees. The forest's official name is Aokigahara Forest and has a reputation for being very quiet. That should make this area very peaceful, but it is actually pretty notorious. The forest has a reputation as a place people go to die by their own hand. Most people call this wooded area "The Suicide Forest." There are rumors that demons run the place. And the tales of hauntings are numerous.

    Ep. 525 - Haunted Wine Country

    A region of California north of the San Francisco Bay Area is known as "Wine Country." Two of the counties within this area are Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. This section of California is known for world-class wine and food and has a beautiful countryside that wine enthusiasts get to enjoy as they drive from tasting to tasting. There are hundreds of wineries between these two counties. One would not put wine and ghosts together necessarily, but several of these wineries reputedly have some paranormal activity. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of Wine Country. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Mindy Hull and features Nadine Earles' burial and This Month in History features the final episode of M*A*S*H*.

    Paranormal Trifecta with Shawn Grimm

    Paranormal Trifecta with Shawn Grimm

    Paranormal Conversations are random, off-the-cuff discussions on all things paranormal. On this 15th episode, we are joined by podcaster Shawn Grimm who hosts The Big Grimmbowski Podcast. Shawn has experienced what we call the Paranormal Trifecta: he's seen a cryptid, seen a UFO and experienced ghostly activity. The cryptid sounds like a very bizarre variation on Bigfoot. And one of the ghosts seems to be an old family friend attached to his former stereo. We also couldn't help but discuss the 10-12 foot tall Nephilim alien things that supposedly showed up at a Miami mall here in Florida.
