I've always been fascinated by the belief in guardian angels and divine intervention. When do they decide to step in? Who do they decide to protect? In today’s episode, I’ll be sharing stories that explore the concept of protection: how we can better protect ourselves, and how we can be better protectors.

Clairaudience: the ability to hear what other's cannot. Sometimes it can be voices, footsteps, or music. Sound plays a big role in many paranormal occurrences, but is it just our ears playing tricks on us? Or perhaps malfunctioning radios? ...Or is it something much more? In this week's episode, I speak with 2 people who have both had very significant experiences involving unexplainable sounds.

Mike Clelland has dedicated his life to studying the connection between owls, UFOs, and death. This was an incredibly eye-opening conversation, one that changed the way I think about these birds, and even led to my own owl synchronicities.

Humans, by nature, are territorial creatures. Whether it’s a seat at a coffee shop or our lane on the freeway, we make it known with our bags or car horns when we have claimed a space. But there are non human entities that are territorial as well. So what happens when humans and spirits claim the same space? Who does it truly belong to? On this week’s episode, I’ll be sharing stories that discuss the concept of territory.

First, I ...

What comes to mind when I say the word “ghost”? For most people, a ghost is the spirit of a person who has passed. But ghosts are not limited to that one definition. They can be an energy stealing force, the personification of unresolved trauma, or the representation of our mental state. In this episode, I’ll be sharing real stories from real people who have encountered these types of inhuman ghosts. First, I read the story of a wi...

American history is a horror story - for Black people, indigenous people, and people of color. And yet mainstream horror cinema has vastly left these groups out of the picture, both on and behind the screen. In this week’s episode, I speak with horror writer Johnny Compton about why that might be, and how we can change that.
