bizarre states

bizarre states is a paranormal podcast on the nerdist network hosted by jessica chobot and andrew bowser. each week they talk about paranormal news and share fucked up stories and videos, usually with a guest (and the guests are pretty awesome - they've had stuart gordon and barbara crampton on in past episodes!)

i've been listening since episode one and it's a pretty awesome podcast. i love paranormal stuff but when i've tried to listen to other podcasts that cover this area i usually find they take it too seriously or make it really boring. chobot and bowser get the balance right between talking about genuinely spooky shit and having some fun with it at the same time.

i got so into this podcast that i decided to send in a story. the problem is, even though i've been interested in this stuff since forever, i've never actually seen a ghost or experienced anything even vaguely paranormal. the closest i have is something that happened to me when i was a kid that my cousin and i used to say was an encounter with a ghost, but ... well, i'll let you hear the story. they read it out on their latest episode when they were in the middle of a vigil at meltdown comics. it's a cool video but if you don't want to watch the whole thing my story is at around 07:38.

yeah, it wasn't that great a story and in hindsight i maybe shouldn't have sent it in, but the thing is when i was writing the e-mail i remembered it happening and really creeped myself out. i should've added a part at the end where i turned round and there was no one there, but that would have been a lie.

still, if you're interested in paranormal stuff go subscribe to bizarre states or check it out on the nerdist website.
