Podcast Update: April 2018

We realise it’s been a while since we last launched an episode, so thought it was important we put out an update to let everyone know what is going on with the podcast. To learn more you can listen to the ‘bonus’ episode below for more information.

However, if words are more your thing (not sure why you are listening to a podcast and not reading a book!) – read on below for the key points on what is going on!

Ghost Stories is run by a small team of two. Firstly there is me (Tyler) the head producer and my wife, Lucy, who runs most our social media. There are two main reasons we haven’t put anything out recently:

  1. We’ve being getting some pretty big house renovations done, including trying to put together the new studio/office – making recording/editing/scripting a little more difficult than usual
  2. I’ve recently been offered a local community radio show based on my work with the podcast

The offering of a radio show is a great honour and one I couldn’t turn down – it’s one of their flagship daytime shows and will be once a week, three hours long and each one have a theme, guests and so on. If anyone is interested to tune in please check out NLive on TuneIn radio, check out their website or if you happen to be in Northampton (UK) tune into 106.9fm, Fridays between 10am to 1pm from June 1st.

No need to worry, this doesn’t mean the podcast will be stopping. It simply means we are going to slow it down a bit and try to build up a bank of content over the coming months to alleviate the pressure of working on highly produced podcast and radio show alongside the day to day job – although the dream would be to take Ghost Stories full time, but that is a story for another day!

My hope is to start the podcast up again late June or early July – although please don’t worry if we miss this by a week or two. i am also looking into expanding the website, including a forum to share stories, building merchandise and re-launching our Patreon in this time – and I have a designer friend who wants to help us with some rebranding!

For updates, follow our Facebook page or keep an eye on the podcast, and of course continue to subscribe, listen, share and review.

We will be back soon.

Cheers, Tyler

Story: Something in the Loft (Episode 6 / Season 4)

When moving house it can take time to get used to the new noises and energy around the place. In fact, for some this transition can feel almost like a paranormal experience.

This week’s story is about one couples experience in making the move from an apartment to owning their first house. Although it seemed like their dream move, they could’ve never expected the events that would unfold.

This is Something in the Loft.

Podcast Thursday – ‘Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People’

Some people do ‘throw back Thursday’ but we’ve decided to do ‘Podcast Thursday’ where each week our producers will try to recommend another fantastic pod to check out – especially as you’ve all been so patiently waiting for season 4 of Ghost Stories to launch (it’s coming October 2017).

This week we recommend you listen to ‘Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People’ – a show hosted by Comedian Chris Gethard and published by Earwolf. The show is described as:

“Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen!”

We’ve included a link above to the pod and I’ve embedded one of my favourite early episodes below for you to listen to.

Have a listen, we are sure you’ll enjoy it!

If you have a spooky story you want to share or even want to tell us about a podcast we should check out, message the production team using our contact page.
