    Spooky Tales with Julio Garibay (Ghost Tour In New Orleans & Strange Calls)

    Spooky Tales with Julio Garibay (Ghost Tour In New Orleans & Strange Calls)

    Special thanks to my guest, Julio Garibay, who shared his experiences visiting New Orleans, where he would embark on a journey through their spooky ghost tour, which is a tour where travelers are taken to different cemeteries and are able to communicate with ghosts through a ghost app downloaded on their phones. Julio dives deeper into his creepy experience with this ghost app by describing a second experience in a jazz club where it really got real to him and others. Julio also describes a strange call he still cannot explain which may be from the devil himself. Stick around and don't touch that dial because these spooky stories will surely keep you at the edge of your seat.

The Black Mermaid ,

I had to re-write my review!

I found this podcast and immediately went to start at the very first episode....the content is amazing but his narration made listening impossible. I’m glad he’s improved A LOT but I wish he’d re-record the early episodes because again great stories but the cadence of the narration was horrendous!

Sugar Creager ,

The Creeps!

The stories on this podcast are good, but the added sound effects make it great. I have jumped more than once and looked over my shoulder. I don’t care for podcasts that have banter between host (s) so I am really enjoying this. However, I have heard the same stories on other podcasts. That’s a bummer. Probably should screen the stories. Thank you!

wyattw27 ,

Nice job

Been listening for a good while, love it- just gotta work on the pronunciation on some words. Also the little breaks in between stories where you “reflect” on the story seem a little forced and I think you’d benefit from shortening or completely removing them. But all in all, good job! It’s obvious you love this stuff and have a passion for the genre. Keep up the good work Mike :)
