Listen To This Show.

Forrest and Scott are the most credible people to be relaying these legends. They provide an astonishing amount of research (pun intended) on such interesting topics. This show will not be pigeon-holed into one category- they cover everything and anything mysterious. I can’t even listen to the other paranormal shows I used to without coming away feeling that they lacked the amount of credible historical information, witness interviews, and expert interviews I have come to expect from these guys. What a great team, and hats off to the ARC; Astonishing Research Core. They are no joke.
The sound design, format, and delivery are all impeccable on this show. Shoot, I don’t even mind their ad spaces, since they deliver them so well and aren’t annoying about it.
This podcast will RUIN all other paranormal genre podcasts for you, in the best way possible.

Please stop interrupting each other

I have listened to about 10 eps so far. Wonderful show, great research and well done. But please stop interrupting each other. It makes you sound like two giddy teenage girls taking about boys after school. It doesn’t fit in with the spooky/paranormal nature of the show, and really gets distracting and tiring after a few times. If you mispronounce something,just apologize and move on, dont spend 3 minutes talking about it. All in all great topics, just slow it down and let each other finish.

Excellent show. Got me hooked immediately

I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts that cover the paranormal and supernatural and this is one of the best. The hosts, Scott and Forest, do a first rate job researching their topics and exploring it from so many angles, including asking skeptical questions and looking for holes in the stories. They are really interested in seeking the objective facts and some of their research takes very unexpected turns.
