    S6E10 - Why I Can't Go To Disneyland Anymore (Scarecast Originals)

    S6E10 - Why I Can't Go To Disneyland Anymore (Scarecast Originals)

    Disneyland is known to be the happiest place on Earth, a place where nothing creepy should happen, but… it’s not like that; did you know that it’s a common thing for people to spread their loved one’s ashes over there? Be aware that if you choose Mickey Mouse’s home in California to be your last resting place, you’ll end up inside a vacuum cleaner for eternity. But, as it happens to most things we love, the internet has brought some obscure information that has put the theme park under a not so magic light.

    Disneyland has become infamous for its ghost stories, something that – instead of being harmful to the park’s reputation – has piqued the interest of many people, primarily teenagers and young adults. One of Disneyland’s famous ghosts, in particular, has been very popular lately, thanks to some TikTok going around. Well… I am probably one of the first people ever to spot him, and I have some things to say about Mr. One Way.

Great Podcast needs to look for story’s elsewhere

This is an amazing podcast dude does great voice acting on his own. Only problem I have is he overlaps a lot of story’s with another podcast I listen to with much higher production quality and sounds like higher budget. While I don’t have a problem with the lower budget on this podcast I love the stories. But for the episodes you overlap with the other podcast I usually listen to them on the other podcast just because they do it quite better. So I end up not listening to a bunch of your episodes because to be honest you guys share a LOT of episodes. So it would be awesome if maybe you started getting stories elsewhere so I’m able to fully support you and listen to more episodes.

Love His Style

One of my favorite podcasts to listen to. Recently found it so I started listening to it beginning to end.

Kinda funny how he had a country accent at the beginning of the show and now doesn’t in the more recent episodios🤣
