    The Demons That Haunt Us - Part III

    The Demons That Haunt Us - Part III

    A single mother, Luna,  along with her teenage son Finn and young daughter Shiloh had to recently flee their home due to unsettling activity in their home. Unable to afford staying in a hotel for an extended amount of time, the family has since returned to their residence. However, they now live in fear that, whatever’s been tormenting them the past seven years, is going to strengthen its attacks against them.  In part I of this series, in an interview with Luna, she recounted in detail the plethora of unusual phenomena the family were experiencing.  Phantom putrid odors, knocking on the walls, shadow figures, full bodied apparitions,, and even physical attacks such as scratch marks and people being thrown. These attacks however seemed to be focused around Finn, Luna’s teenage son. Turning their attention to Finn, Stephen and Occult Specialist Alexis had a theory that he possibly possessed some level of psychic ability and could be a reason activity was ramping up in the home. In Part II of this series, through a more in depth interview with Finn, they not only got further validation of his mother’s experiences, but also learned of new activity in new areas of the home that was concerning. Most notably, voices that Finn and his sister Shiloh had heard and without knowing, both described the sound of the voices as “plotting”. Stephen and Alexis believed that the families action to demolish the hallway bathroom, what they believed to be a hot spot for the paranormal activity, may have just displaced whatever was there, and could potentially have aggravated it. The conversation with Finn regarding the incident in Shoal Creek where he witnessed a young boy's death and the spirit of Bryan who seemed to follow him after his event, further solidified their theory that Finn very likely possessed some level of psychic ability. Now that they'd gathered as much information they could through interviews, it was time to visit the home and do a full investigation. Join Stephen as he brings team members Alexis, Franklyn and psychic friend Sara to try and determine what is really tormenting this family and if there’s any way they could possibly help them feel safe in their own home again.

    The Demons That Haunt Us - Part II

    The Demons That Haunt Us - Part II

    After fleeing their home for a week, Luna and her two children now return to their home where unexplained activity has plagued them for the last 7 years. Disturbing sightings, unsettling sounds, foul odors, and more upsetting, physical attacks, are just a few of the paranormal experiences Luna, Finn and Shiloh have had to live with. After conducting the first phone interview with Luna, which you heard in the previous episode, it was revealed to Stephen that there were a lot of layers to this residential haunting. Layers he still wanted to uncover and shed light on before attempting an actual investigation of the home with his team. There were elements of this case that were red flags and warnings the team needed to heed. Being prepared for this particular case was crucial. Stephen decided he needed to hear from other members of the household before diving into a potentially dangerous investigation. Dangerous in that they have a family who is frightened to even be in their home. But they also have activity that’s pointing to a malevolent presence, perhaps even demonic (a term the team uses sparingly in their work). With the help of occult specialist Alexis, the team now invite Luna and her teenage son to  come to Stephen's residence, to gather testimony from Finn and see if they can uncover anything else that could better prepare them for what they were about to jump into.

    Haunted Gaslight Baker Theatre - Part II

    Haunted Gaslight Baker Theatre - Part II

    Previously, in Episode 30, we began an investigation of a historic theater located in beautiful downtown Lockhart, Texas. We interviewed several people with first-hand accounts of experiences they’d had at the Gaslight Baker Theater. Through their testimony, we learned that they believed the theatre to be inhabited by several otherworldly inhabitants, including the original owner Colonel Baker, a woman or women who’s laughter is often heard coming from the lobby referred to as the laughing lady or ladies, and finally a darker more sinister spirit many have dubbed “the other guy”. Now, we delve deeper into this case by uncovering more eyewitness testimony and on one hot balmy night, we bring along clairvoyant friend Sara to investigate the strange occurrences and paranormal claims surrounding this beautiful historic Theater.

    Announcement: A Night Owl Pause

    Announcement: A Night Owl Pause

    Hi listeners, You may have noticed my absence over these last few weeks as I’ve been taking a break for my physical and mental well-being. It is with a heavy heart that I announce this break will continue for longer than originally planned. For reasons that won’t be discussed, the show will be taking a six month hiatus. My team will continue to upload new content to our Patreon page during this break that include: Q&A sessions with Sara and Alexis, as well as previously unreleased audio from various cases.That being said, I know you have been anticipating the release of Episode 31: The Gaslight Baker Theatre Part II. It is on the way, but will, unfortunately, not be ready for release by midnight tonight. We will work to get this episode to you in the not too distant future, but ask for your patience and understanding as we move through these next months. Your kind words of love and support have not gone unrecognized, and I hope that you continue to support the show during this time of much needed rest and self-care. 2020 has been so challenging for so many people out there and I just want to wish everyone a Happy New year and send my love. The show will continue on, there are just life circumstances that have made it impossible for me to continue at this moment. But I know my true night owls out there are with us, they support us, and they will stay restless as usual awaiting our return. All the best, you host, Stephen

Overall awesome podcast!

I’m a big paranormal fan and this podcast is great!! I’m a new listener and I really appreciate the combination of storytelling, historical research, and the investigation piece- it’s fun following along and tying everything together. I was hesitant to start because I’m so used to watching paranormal investigations on tv versus just listening about them, but it was soo worth it, I find this podcast way better than any of those shows that just drag you along for an hour. Glad I have a few seasons of this to binge!! Thanks Stephen and co!
