    Chased by a Werewolf

    Chased by a Werewolf

    Joshua shares a story from his youth about a frightening day along the local creek with his brother and a friend. After coming upon a display of deer skulls, mounted on sticks in the middle of the creek, the boys decided to vacate the area. It seems something followed them - as they got closer to home and had to cross through a long, dark tunnel, something large and hair-covered dropped into the creek behind them and chased them through the tunnel.

Dr. Renner!

Pennsylvania should be so proud of it’s native son. I believe an honorary doctorate from Penn State in sociological folklore is in order!
Congratulations Dr. Renner!!!

Just Wonderful

I’m trying to figure out how to explain what I love about this podcast. The host is delightful: intelligent, compassionate and entertaining. His wife cohosts and she’s funny, knowledgeable and offers a gentle counterpoint as an open minded skeptic. There’s a sense of community and curiosity that I enjoy and the stories told are compelling. Overall, this paranormal podcast is deeply rooted in history and has its own flavor that keeps me returning to it for the ideas and the way they are presented.
