‘Tis near Halloween the season of spook, round every corner horrors if you dare to look. We filled this episode with tales of goblins and ghouls, told by a selection of odd costumed fools.

Hosted this week by ghostbusting Bard, assisted by Beard as his face paint drys hard.

Let us descend into the lair where we film our podcasts, and test the strength of your neve, see if it lasts.

In other words – It’s Halloween!!! Join Bard and Beard and a selection ghoulish guests as we retell ghostly occurrences and spooky tales! With one story in particular literally changing how I see the paranormal for ever!

Hi team, great episode really enjoyed it! James, if you enjoy the debate between the sceptics and the believers you might enjoy The Battersea Poltergeist, The Witch Farm, or the series Uncanny, all on BBC Sounds. They’ve all been produced by the same team investigating people’s experiences much like the ones discussed in this episode. Anyway looking forward to hearing more from you all on this next Halloween!

My spooky thing happened when I lived in a small town on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border Was put with friends heading up to the park at the top of the hill, which had woodland slightly further up the hill, must have been around half 6/7 ish in autumn so it was going dark but not completely dark yet Wandering up the road, we both saw a pair of white outlines. We looked at each other and laughed and both decided it was just a bit of mist from the beck that ran through the park. As we got closer, the “mist”… Read more »

Thoroughly enjoyed that chaps, James’ story about Sally in the Woods is mad, just had a Google of it. It’s great to know that you are all open minded about these things that a lot of people shrug off. I have somewhat of a curse in my family line… my great, great grandad cut off his hand when he was working sweeping the streets, and he bled to death… years later my grandad cut off most of his hand walking through a glass sliding door, it was hanging off but it was saved by my grandma who knew the belt… Read more »

Some feedback on the new schedule from a busy 9-5er that might not get read but I wasnt sure where to put it; the Monday release of the podcast was great because I could listen to it through headphones audio-only while working throughout the week, then Id watch a game on Friday night to relax, then the Saturday game release dropped right on the weekend where I had way more time to sit down and watch a game or two, or watch while getting hobbying done. Obviously I’m not speaking for anyone but myself and I have the option to… Read more »

Great Episode love your guys strory telling abilites especially the one by the spider. To the Spider…I come from a working class English background council estate that old chestnut. My family has a few ghost tales and a few of us have that precisence “gift” or feeling you were talking about. I think its common in emotive people raised of history and stories of old albion. Britain is a magical country and culture runs deep in the old iceni celt and pagan clans. I dont doubt there is stuff out there and i certainly belive you have a knack for… Read more »

I’ve always fallen into the skeptic side of things, although at this point in life I feel that it’s more for my sanity just based on the amount of strange stuff that keeps happening around me. When I was a kid my father, older brother, and myself used to have the exact same recurring dream damn near monthly. It was always just a first person perspective of looking at my neighbors house from the edge of the clearing leading to it (about 100-200 feet away) and just feeling terrified. After being an adult and going into it for the first… Read more »

I have a nice spoopy story, I was 7/8 at the time playing round my grandparents house before they passed. It was an old working farm that’s been in the family for generations, I was playing in the nursery and it’s was your stereotypical old nursery, rocking chair, doll house, rocking horse etc. So one time I was in there playing with Lego and all of a sudden I hear a hummed tune, then the chair starts rocking and I’m freaked! Then as I’m about to wet my pants I see a pair of disembodied hands clap! I peal out… Read more »

I agree with Katie. Ghost nuns are scary. If there was one profession you’d think would be quite a shoe-in for heaven (or hell even I spose) it would be Nuns. I mean, they are the Brides of God (or Christ? can’t remember) are generally considered to be ‘good’ people pretty much as a rule etc. You hear far less about corruption within the nunnery than compared to say; the priesthood (although I’m sure there is some). And I like to think that nuns are a bit like matrons and are sort of like supposed to be motherly figures (although… Read more »

Lawrence’s story was told as a fantastic scary story, but I was expecting something truly horrific! Didn’t you even try to talk to the little girl? Now Bard’s is simply terrifying after looking up Sally in the Wood. My own experiences have been mild, and I have to say, somewhat pleasant. Twice I have been woken to repeated noises in my house while alone. #1 was someone tapping on my American Football helmet repeatedly that was near my bed (unmistakable sound). Happened throughout the night. #2 was repeated “dinging” of an electronic device, really close to me, again, repeatedly all… Read more »

I loved, loved, loved this episode. I’m not a believer personally in paranormal stuff, but I still love talking about it with friends and colleagues. Not only was this episode some top-tier content in that vein, but also it was nice to see one of these podcast episodes just be about… you guys. Chatting about other, non-40k stuff in your lives. I’d love to see more of that kind of thing. Plus I’m always down for spooky episodes, so roll on next year I hope!

That was cool, really enjoyed it! I got a story aswell: I was with my exgirlfriend at the time. She lived next to a curch a little bit remote of the rest of the village with her parents. We had the groundfloor appartement and her parents lived in the top one. She had a cat and a dog and i didn‘t believe in paranomal things at the time. The first thing i noticed, the cat was at times staring on a corner of the cieling for no reason… literally for minutes. Once we went out walking the dog and we… Read more »

Well, watching this at 1am, just before going to bed, probably wasn’t the best idea ;D As far as personal experiences that could convince one to the possibility of paranormal phenomenon being real, I had 4 in my 40 years in this earth. 2 were when I was about 11, one when I was 16, and the last one just a year ago. First one was “simple”. I was coming back home from school. As I was walking across a street, I saw my class mate’s grandmother walk by me with a couple of grocery bags (most likely coming back… Read more »

For Halloween, can we just have Lawrence talking about all his ghost experiences. The man knows how to tell a story, felt like I was in the villa with them

My scary story from when I was about 13… My friend’s dad owned a Gymnasium, which had a load of land around it where a bunch of us would make shelters in the woods and camp out. One night we had planned to stay over but a storm came in so we ended up staying in the Gym’s ‘Dojo’ (basically a converted metal barn). In the centre of the dojo was a huge punch bag, that was incredibly heavy; we could barely move it. So, about 8 of us are in this dojo in our sleeping bags, laid out around… Read more »

Great episode guys, good fun, but as a rational person gotta just tell you it’s all a load of nonsense. Drama grads love a bit of a drama, no? 😉

Hey TTT. Loved all the stories told. Kind of want to go visit that road for Sally in the Wood now but we shall see. I’ve got a couple. The first one I chalk up to as a dream. But I still swear to this day that I saw my grandfather in my grandmother’s basement one random afternoon. He has passed away long before that sighting. The second, more personal one, was one my mom had experienced. One night she was in a deep sleep but woke up. My Uncle Jimmy told her to get up and go to the… Read more »

Really fun episode. Do think you should another next year. Always find the paranormal an interesting one, because I think I somewhat agree with Chef in that there some unexplained things but also I’m fairly sceptical. Mostly as the first question that springs to mind is always, why so few instances? They seem like a lot until you factor in the literal billions of people that have died. Why did Spider get to hear that specific little Italian girls song, why was she out of all the other people that have lived there a ghost? Just spooky ghost things? Something… Read more »

Not really a ghost story…just more of a spooky location story. I was in New Orleans, Louisiana staying at a friend’s house. New Orleans has a lot of above ground cemeteries with crypts and mausoleums and such. They are all fairly old with old wrought iron fencing. One of these was on the way to the local bar. We had cut through it occasionally to reach the bar. One night we were coming back from the bar at around 3 a.m. and we get to the cemetery, and a low to the ground fog was filling the entire cemetery, and… Read more »

This was thoroughly entertaining. Please do it again next year. was great to have the whole team together for a podcast. I know it may not be practical from a filming/time perspective but I would love to watch more full team podcasts.

A possible explanation for the uncanny valley could be that it developed at a time when there were other archaic human species which may have been a threat… think Neanderthals, Denisovans and other earlier species that may have been knocking about.

Creepy and highly entertaining. Though I can see potentially logical explanations for all of them. Is next year’s Halloween podcast live from Sally’s tower at midnight?

For some reason it’s just giving me the YouTube url link rather than embedding the video. Thought you might wish to know in case it’s at your end (on an iPhone if it matters)
