    Stories Revisited: The Intelligent Ball of Light in Joshua Tree, The Twentynine Palms Shadow Man

    Stories Revisited: The Intelligent Ball of Light in Joshua Tree, The Twentynine Palms Shadow Man

    A couple weeks ago I went to Twentynine Palms and had some really incredible paranormal experiences that you’ll hear about in the future. While I was out there I was reminded of a couple stories from a few years back. So while the show is still on a break, I wanted to share these stories again - as a reminder of just how freaky the desert is.
    First, my friend Arthur tells us of the intelligent beam of light he witnessed in Joshua Tree. Then, my cousin’s friend Raeha tells us of the crawling shadow man in Twentynine Palms. Since these are from older episodes the audio will be a little inconsistent, so my apologies. 

    Ch 1 - Joshua Tree, with Arthur
    Ch 2 - The Desert Shadow Man, with Raeha Keller

    Rest in Chaos: Stories of spirits and ghosts who can't find peace

    Rest in Chaos: Stories of spirits and ghosts who can't find peace

    "Rest in peace." We say this when somebody passes because we hope that their spirit moves to the other side peacefully. But sometimes that transition is disrupted, resulting in a ghost. In today’s episode, I’ll be sharing stories of spirits who are still lingering on earth, unable to rest.
    First, I tell the tale of a grandfather ghost who had to deal with his feuding wife and mistresses.Then, I narrate the time a young girl was haunted by a lady who lived in her closet. Next, I read the experience of a person who was protected by a murdered boy while astral projecting. And finally, I share the story of a truck driver who encountered a phantom little girl.

    Ch 1 - Drama in the after life, submitted by Jon
    Ch 2 - The lady who lived in my closet, submitted by Jurie
    Ch 3 - The blood executioner, submitted by Tyler
    Ch 4 - Truck route, submitted by Tele
