    Episode 35 - The Winchester Mystery House

    Episode 35 - The Winchester Mystery House

    I’m your host Kate and today is all about a beautiful, but very mysterious house in San Jose, California. Purchased by Sarah Winchester in the late 1800s the once 8 bedroom farmhouse was renovated over the course of 20 years into a seven story, 160 room mansion. But this isn’t your normal HGTV makeover, or I wouldn’t be covering it on the show. This is…the Winchester Mystery House.

    Episode 34 - The Enfield Poltergeist

    Episode 34 - The Enfield Poltergeist

    I’m your host Kate and today’s episode is a very popular, but also very controversial haunting. The Enfield poltergeist tormented the Hodgson family in the 1970’s taking particular interest in 11 year old Janet. These events would be depicted in the movie the Conjuring 2, although, as usual, Hollywood obviously fabricated some of it. A large number of witnesses experienced the strange events in the home, still, many people are skeptical about what really occurred in that house.

    Episode 33 - Joe Clark (The "Bonebreaker")

    Episode 33 - Joe Clark (The "Bonebreaker")

    I’m your host Kate and today is the first listener request (wow Cassie, you didn’t disappoint, this is horrific) and it’s also the first case covered in my home state of Wisconsin. (no it’s not Jeffrey Dahmer or Ed Gein..maybe I’ll cover those assholes at a different time.) Today is about Joe Clark, also known as the “Bonebreaker.” A super messed up 17 year old who got a thrill out of torturing younger teens, specifically by breaking their bones.
    So, trigger warning here that this case includes teenagers and torture.

    Episode 32 - Buried Alive...and Survived

    Episode 32 - Buried Alive...and Survived

    I’m your host Kate and today is all about the horrifying idea of being buried alive. Rather than covering those people who were found too late (some of which were stuck with shrieks of horror frozen on their faces, with their hair ripped out, or without fingers because they had chewed them off in a panic) we’re going to cover the unfortunate individuals who were buried alive but were able to live to tell the tale.

    Episode 31 - Katherine Knight

    Episode 31 - Katherine Knight

    I’m your host Kate and today is all about a true monster, Katherine Knight. Katherine Knight had a long history of abusing her male partners and this eventually led to the brutal murder of John Price. I do have to throw out some trigger warnings because this story is intense. There will be a brief mention of sexual abuse and animal cruelty.

One of my favs!

That’s not normal podcast is great! Every topic gives me the spooks…I always get excited when I realize a new one has come out! The only downfall is the episode goes by so fast bc it’s so juicy you want to hear more stories! One of my favorite podcasts I never miss an episode!

Immersive Podcast with Suspense + Laughter

That’s Not Normal had me hooked from Episode 1! Kate meticulously retells tales about people, places, and things that are bizarre and “not normal.” Her stories are packed with scrupulously researched anecdotes, quirky commentary, and suggestions guiding you down other tangentially related topic rabbit-holes. I am totally immersed for the entirety of these 25-minute podcasts—whether it’s listening in suspense OR laughing at Kate’s witty, tongue-in-cheek side commentary.

Binged it all!

I have to admit, I was late to the game listening to these and binged them in one day. Soooooo good. Each week is different and so interesting. She even responded to me about a cool criminal case I know about that’s super abnormal! Thanks for personalizing this experience for me and keeping me HOOKED.
