    In Episode 453: Summoning Azazel we are joined by a guest that requested to remain anonymous. She had some experiences that she has never shared with people and was very hesitant to do so. She seems to have had a run-in with the fallen angel Azazel caused by a ritual she briefly watched at the end of a video. After viewing the ritual weird things started happening around her home. She went back to the video to investigate and she found that the ritual was no longer there. So she reached out to the creator of the video and that's when things get even more bizarre. She also talks about premonitions she has had, her encounter with bigfoot as a young girl, and the possession she seems to have gone through.

    452: Abducted and Implanted

    In Episode 452: Abducted and Implanted, we are joined by Ryan in the United Kingdom. Since he was a young child, Ryan has had experiences that seem to be paranormal - on the surface. But after hearing his story, you will be left wondering if his perceived abduction experiences are related to his early paranormal experiences. Ryan believes they are all connected, and it's hard to argue with him when you hear about his experiences. From haunting entities to abductions with implants, to catching things on camera in his house, Ryan shares his incredible life story.

    RELOADED | 212: The Rake Monster Next Door

    In Episode 212: The Rake Monster Next Door, we talk with guest Sam who has had an incredible life of distinct experiences! In one such experience, Sam and his wife came home one night to the sight of a rake monster crouching in their neighbor's yard, staring intently at his house! In addition to his rake sighting, Sam has seen a bigfoot while camping by himself and has also encountered the infamous Hatman.

    Sam was also a guest on Episode 2 of Hammer Lane Legends, "Hauling Fuel In Enemy Territory." Sam was a civilian driver over in Iraq for our military! He volunteered to go into harm’s way to make sure our troops had the supplies they needed, and his willingness to serve our military left him with stories that he will be telling for years. From driving over landmines to driving under overpasses that were rigged to explode, to being shot at by snipers, Sam joins Tony and Brian to share his dramatic stories of hauling fuel in enemy territory.

Chelojelo ,

So far so good

Found this channel due to the host being interviewed on another pod. Came over to listen to a popular ep. that was mentioned. It was obv a big made up story by the guest, haha, wow. I’m fine w making up my own mind about whether a guest is being honest, tho. Anyway, I liked the content of the channel, so have started from the beginning. I like that Tony doesn’t interrupt or talk over top of his guests too much. So many hosts have that annoying habit.

Clete G ,

Is it just me?

Seems like all i ever see anymore is reloads and member previews. Guess you gotta get that $$$, but sheesh.

Battlebirch ,

Still great, taken a step back

Great host! Sometimes it’s best to real in a guest that is rambling BUT it’s better than some who constantly interrupt. The only real complaint is that the best content is great but requires membership and the free is average. Great sales strategy but I’d like to be convinced the member material is great BECAUSE the free material is great.
