About Us

One a skeptic and one a believer, partners in crime Pat and Rebecca share their favorite ghost stories before debating what fact is and what is legend.

Ghostly Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast that takes a deeper look into those ghost stories that have believers and critics. After telling each story, we will debate the truth of it. From the most popular ones to ones that are more obscure, each story will be explored using whatever evidence can be found.  Expect arguments, laughs, and, sometimes, maybe, an agreement.

You love the balance between Believer Rebecca and Skeptic Pat. You love getting both sides and learning all the facts so you can decide for yourself; you love this format. You can't wait for the next episode of Ghostly! Seriously this podcast is amazing. Thank you, Pat and Rebecca, for all the time and work you put into it. Also, go check out their YouTube! I loved the tarot reading video.
United StatesUnited States2020-01-215MissFairy19Love it!I listened to Resurrection Mary and enjoyed it so I’ve subscribed and can’t wait to catch up. I’m a paranormal believer but I try to be objective and skeptical when I hear a ghost story so I really enjoy both points of view. -April from All Cats Are Grey in the Dark
United StatesUnited States2020-01-105Dereleaked88Give up the ghostGhostly shines through discussion and offering more than one viewpoint. What’s most impressive is that it comes off entertaining while having respect for both the belief and skepticism without skewing too much either way. It’s easy to listen to, engaging and genuinely creepy. It’s the perfect show for burning the midnight oil. Give them a listen and subscribe now!
United StatesUnited States2019-12-255HelloandNoExcellentLove this show. always keeps me interested and always look forward to new episodes
United StatesUnited States2019-12-045Laugh while being afraid.Inspiring. Entertaining. #TeamBeliever just wins.Patrick and Rebecca are the two best podcasters out there period. I can not recommend this enough. Not only as a paranormal fan, but as a historian as well. You will get the best of both worlds with this podcast. I love them.
United StatesUnited States2019-11-155BreeTaylor23Fun and interesting podcastI’ve been listening to this podcast since their 3rd or 4th episode and I’ve been obsessed ever since. It’s been great to see their podcast transform as they grow and create new ideas. I normally listen to news podcasts so this is a great break since it’s so entertaining. I love how they aren’t like most ghost related podcasts. It’s fun having a skeptic on the show even though I am definitely a believer. Worth the listen for sure!
United StatesUnited States2019-11-085TechSupport84Stumbled upon this podcast,......& now i don’t want to get back up. I love the believer/skeptic debate angle. It makes the show really standout in a crowd of paranormal podcasts. Keep up the great shows!!! Can’t wait to keep listening.
United StatesUnited States2019-08-285Chantraine1975Excellent and fascinating paranormal podcastThis is a must-listen podcast. It’s top-notch! The hosts are very knowledgeable and their voices are so soothing that you could probably sleep to their podcast, except the topics are so chilling! I listen on a podcast app. I’d like to name the app but I don’t think that’s allowed. But anyway, give them a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
United StatesUnited States2019-07-111LevianityLove the subject matter; hate the format.Alright. So Podcoin recommended Ghostly to me based on my other podcasts and you know what? I really do enjoy the subject matter. But the format leaves a lot to be desired. Pat and Rebecca are both knowledgeable hosts and they often have their friend Mondo guest on specific subjects too! Pat is the historian and Rebecca is the paranormal expert and together they cover all angles of specific events. Then, they have the audience vote: Team Believer (do you believe that the paranormal stuff is true?) or Team Skeptic (do you believe the paranormal stuff is untrue?). That's all well and good... Except for the format of the show. I have a HUGE problem with the format of how they discuss the events being covered. This is the agenda for each episode: Pat presents the confirmed historical facts of the subject Rebecca presents the paranormal reports of the subject. And as she makes each point, Pat debates the point and pokes holes in it and generally frowns upon the paranormal. Rebecca presents her closing argument (1 min) Pat presents his closing argument (1 min) By the VERY NATURE of the format, Pat is encouraged to talk over Rebecca and shoot down her points and dissuade the audience from believing. And his rebuttles are almost always the same! If it's a place open to the public with tours, he claims that someone made up the ghost stories in order to bring tourists in. If it's not, then why didn't the people experiencing the paranormal happenstance record it? Why didn't they chase the ghost or confront it? If they didn't, then it was OBVIOUSLY fake. And he keeps saying that he "wants to believe" but he doesn't even make an effort to meet Rebecca part of the way. And don't get me started on how much it annoys me that of a man-woman duo, the man is the one who is talking SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THE TIME. I have listened to every episode over the past few weeks in hopes that the format might change or that Pat might stop interrupting Rebecca or that he might at the very least vary his rebuttles. But no. I am sorry to say that is not the case. I really hope they address this issue and change their format. At the very least, I hope Pat lets Rebecca say more that two sentences in a row without jumping in to speak his piece.
United StatesUnited States2019-07-025Ms. BedeliaSpooky Chicago Stories, Yes Please!I love ghost stories but don’t believe in ghosts. But I love the stories that people really believe or are rooted in reality more than those that are made-up for entertainment. While I feel this podcast does have a believer bent (despite Patrick’s best efforts), it’s still comfortable for me as a skeptic, and is a delightful and creepy listen. As a born-and-raised Chicagoan stuck on the West Coast, I especially love that it takes me back to a lot of Chicago and Midwestern history (and spooky stories related to them), which I didn’t expect when I started listening. Patrick could occasionally be a bit more articulate or in-depth in his skepticism, and/or a bit more aware of the social elements- like community trauma- that contribute to ghost stories/ghost sitings rather than trying to invent or rely on “pure science” even when he doesn’t have a good scientific explanation. But I’m picking on poor Patrick because I feel us skeptics need to be convincing in our skepticism. He’s great, as is his partner host and their regular guests. He really does a great job of giving context and bringing nuance.
United StatesUnited States2019-06-165EntropycatLove this podIn normally not into supernatural stuff but the rapport between these two hosts makes this all worth it. I wish they would update more though *ahem* lol
United StatesUnited States2019-05-093Ally HotpantsGreat concept but that gets lostI want to love this podcast and I am going to continue to give it a try because the concept is phenomenal. I’m a skeptical believer so the idea of taking these stories and breaking down the reported experiences to try to suss out if there is any truth to the lore is great. However, the male host is not even remotely open to anything that doesn’t align with his closely held beliefs. Which is fine, but don’t make a podcast pretending that you’ll be open to debate. The female host is much more willing to listen to and consider the other side and even crafts nuanced and thoughtful arguments and explanations. A lot of these ghost stories do sound hokey, but it’s not a fun debate when one of the sides (even if I agree with their general belief) is just automatically dismissive because it doesn’t fit their understanding of the world.
United StatesUnited States2019-05-061pyrexluvI keep wanting and trying to like it but can’tJust the ridiculous comments from the male is so distracting to the story. The peshtigo fire could’ve been such a good show. He sounds SO PATRONIZING when he suggests stuff & so much so that the female often sounds defensive - all over the most ridiculous comments of his that take away from the podcast. Arguing that a lady was prob out in her nightgown at night walking? In a town where a horrific fire took place, and is said to be haunted? - something y’all talk extensively about and then here he goes.... ruins it with the weirdest most patronizing, can’t even call it skeptical- “comments”. Ugh. I tried again to listen and I can’t, I want so bad to hear about your podcast topics - but stop with the half arguing / half patronizing “you’re an idiot if you don’t see it my way” tone of voice man - like we don’t need 10 minutes of him asking her questions to “prove” his POINTLESS points. Just a waste of podcast air.
United StatesUnited States2019-05-015GeminiWitchBeliever with a side of skepticism.I just discovered this podcast when I first downloaded Podcoin about 2 weeks ago. I started from the beginning and am listening my way through. I am really liking the stories in this podcast so far. I have listened up to the one about the fire in the theater in Chicago so far. I like the way this is set up with the believers versus the skeptics side of things. I am a 100% believer, but I do also look at many things and see perfectly normal explanations and don’t just believe everything is ghostly. Therefore, I love listening to the debate and closing arguments sections of these podcasts after the history snd stories are told. Some things I believe are true and I really believe many places are haunted, but there are some experienced or bite of stories where I agree with the skeptics that can be attributed to something else not ghostly at all. I really love these podcasts! I think their whole set up with the history, story, debate, and closing arguments sections are great. I just can’t wait to get caught up to current time because then I can start participating in the votes too!
United StatesUnited States2019-04-195VGW1128Intriguing PodcastThis is a one of kind podcast that you can’t miss! Captivating ghosts stories with an entertaining host, a must listen for everyone!
United StatesUnited States2019-04-195TayhoneaAwesomeI personally love love love Edgar Allen Poe, and you really image the stories well! Amazing amazing!
United StatesUnited States2019-02-285Ttbook2Great mix of history and paranormal folkloreFrankly, ghost stories themselves are kind of boring, so I love that these two focus on the history first before delving into the reported "sightings." The hosts are funny and have great chemistry, always a plus. And I kind of dig the interactive aspect of getting to vote on the ghostly qualities of each episode. Go team skeptic!
United StatesUnited States2018-12-175TheTerrifyingWindowCreepy Well Researched Fun!What a cool concept! I like the way the hosts research the episodes and respect each other's point of view. It's a great way to revisit classic ghost stories and learn about some new ones.
United StatesUnited States2018-12-015RLK😍Ghostly Love!!I love this podcast! Pat & Rebecca bring unique perspectives on the never ending debate of "are ghosts real" vs. "are they just stories that have been fabricated over the years or is there logical reasons behind it all". They clearly do their legwork on each investigation and present it in such an entertaining way, each episode leaves me anxious for the next! Love you guys. Keep it coming!!
United StatesUnited States2018-12-015maryminottGreat!I’m really into stuff like this. Hearing 2 different sides to it makes you think deeper and is really cool to hear. I highly recommend this podcast! I’m definitely going to check out Bachelor’s Grove now!
United StatesUnited States2018-11-285Laughing Ghost StudiosSo much fun!I’ve really been enjoying listening to these on my headphones as I work in my art studio! Definitely looking forward to future episodes!!
United StatesUnited States2018-11-115Mr Giggles 07Like hearing about local Ghost stories.I really enjoyed the first story about Resurrection Mary grew up hearing stories about her. I like how they go out and interview people around where the story takes place and share the info and debate about it. They also seem to put a lot of research into the story. I learned more about this story then I knew before. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to hear the next story.
United StatesUnited States2018-10-315350 MondoExcellent Podcast!!!I love podcasts that are informative and this definitely fits the bill, excellent format they provided resources as well as different viewpoints and even went to the venues to speak with the locals who are familiar with the stories, A nice bit of humor but not over-the-top, some podcasts lose my interest because they focus on laughs instead of the story and before long I am losing interest and that is not the case with ghostly podcast, I like details and perspectives and I really enjoyed listening And will recommend these guys.
United StatesUnited States2018-10-215MainsSLPLooking forward to more!Such a unique concept and so well executed. They are examine Ghost stories in a Mulder & Scully style “believer vs skeptic” POV of popular ghost stories. Quality sound and professional style make listening enjoyable. A quality show!
CanadaCanada2019-09-085cherrycreamcakes😻👻👽👹👻😻Wonderful podcasters and a delightful listen.
CanadaCanada2019-02-145FRNK CSKA must hear !? 🤔A scary good time ! 😳 👻 🧐 Rebecca and Patrick are delightful.
United StatesUnited States2020-03-085DionsmusicaGreat pod! Definitely worth the listen!I had the pleasure of meeting the two hosts of this podcast prior to actually hearing their show. They are super nice people and super pleasant, so I was already intrigued to check them out. I then had the pleasure of attending a live taping of the show at C2E2. It was a great time. The episode was such great content, I actually went and listened to the published version of the same episode, and got to hear the bits that they weren't able to get to in the live version. I definitely recommend this one if you're into ghosts and the paranormal. Dion M. - Host, Off The Beaten Podcast
United StatesUnited States2020-03-105The Misery Machine🙂Excellent find! We came across your show and decided to give it a listen - very glad we did! The hosts are a breath of fresh air and a joy to listen to - the topics are interesting and bingeworthy. Keep up the great work <3 Yergy & Drewby
United StatesUnited States2020-04-105Jenn120934Awesome show!I thought I had rated this months ago! It’s such a great show, I love the content, format and hosts!! Keep up the great work! ❤️ P.S. 100% team skeptic
United StatesUnited States2020-04-155ChewiechunksTeam Ghost-nosticPat and Rebecca, you are podcast rockstars! 🤩 I love how you start with a captivating ghost story and then go in-depth with the history behind each episode. Thank you so much for making me think as well as smile. BTW, I am equally split between Team Skeptic and Team Believer, so ... Team Ghost-nostic?
United StatesUnited States2020-04-215RachaelHWMy Favorite Show & HostsI stumbled upon this show when Podcoin was a thing- Podcoin is no more but my love for Ghostly lives on! The playful chemistry between the hosts (Pat and Rebecca) sets the stage for an engaging, intriguing, entertaining and educational listen. Pat (skeptic) takes a look at the history of the episode’s topic, followed by Rebecca (believer) covering the lore. The hosts then debate the topic and finish up with closing arguments. They then invite the listeners to decide by voting on a Facebook poll to tell if the haunting (or other paranormal subject) is real or not. As an added bonus, it turns out that the show is based in the Chicago area, which has given me the privilege of the opportunity to meet the hosts at events- and I can not over state how wonderful these two are to their listeners! Give them a listen and if you ever have the opportunity to meet them in person, do it!
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2020-04-241StevenGrace10Boring discourse between hostsI tried to listen to episode 41 of this podcast, the ghosts of Jack the Ripper. After 20 minutes of unnecessary boring chat between the hosts came the first request for money. For what? Delivered in a condescending manner, this podcast would do well to focus on what initially appears to be good subject matter, drop one of the hosts and employ a delivery as if aimed at adults and not a bunch of pre-school children. And please give up talking about your jobs and how your week has been, your day to day life is not of interest to listeners. I unsubscribed after those first 20, toe-curling minutes.
United StatesUnited States2020-04-275MindyFFSpookily entertainingI stumbled upon this podcast recently and was immediately intrigued by it. I love listening to the history of each ghost story and hearing a skeptics point of view on it. Personally I am team believer but I do often think all the same thoughts that Pat states when watching or hearing or experiencing anything that’s paranormal.
United StatesUnited States2020-04-275Sarahjean76If you love Chicago, you’ll love Ghostly!!!Chicago is my favorite city to visit - Da Bears!! That’s how I got reeled in. While the subject matter is very intriguing to me, and I probably land more on the believer side (sorry Pat); it’s the history that got me hooked. I love to hear about the stories that lead to the legends. Even though all their stories aren’t based in Chicago you’ll get a little touch of Chicago every time you listen. Ghostly often has guests that will expose you to other great entertainers. Mondo’s singing is the BEST!! So whether you are Team Skeptic or Team Believer each episode will have something for you. Don’t forget to vote after the episode!!
United StatesUnited States2020-05-025whitdrodenCame over to Apple Podcast just to leave a reviewI left a review on Facebook already for this podcast but I just felt like giving them another 5 star review. The hosts know how to debate properly and research their topics well. The skeptics and believers are both embraced and not made to feel unwelcome which is uncommon and amazing. They also will talk to you about your experiences and are genuinely super friendly. One of my favorites!
United StatesUnited States2020-05-035chefAlice01Super fun listenI found this podcast on Podcoin as a suggestion before its untimely end. I’m so glad I subscribed to it and look forward to every new episode. This is such a fun podcast to listen to. You can tell that Pat and Rebecca have a lot of fun doing the research and debating the topics each week. I’m usually #TeamBeliever but there have been a few times Pat has made valid points that have changed my mind.
United StatesUnited States2020-05-283PBand JsandwichSeemed a tad pettyThis isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed this show. The last time it was higher but listening to the live show Pat seemed like he felt ganged up on so he resorted to childish pettiness with the constant fart fart fart junk and even earlier basically giving a backhanded compliment to the man that helped. If he doesn’t like being corrected use google to learn how to pronounce things you’re unsure of. Idk maybe he was having a bad day. It was just disappointing to hear yet another paranormal (I say this because most skeptics don’t search out ghost stories to listen to unless it’s under fiction or they want to be “smarter” than us silly gullible folks who believe in ghosts) podcast group trash other people trying to do same thing.
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2020-06-215dannyinkuk94Love this!!Listening to my first episode and it’s super thorough! I love that the episodes are lengthy so it gives me chance to get completely hooked! Great topics and tales that are famous but tackled from a new angle!! Great work! The paranormal ramblings - Melly 🖤
United StatesUnited States2020-07-235DAILY 19Educational and fun!I stumbled across this podcast in the middle of quarantine, desperate for something new to listen to. I was soon hooked and have listened to every episode. I love the historical facts as well as the supernatural side. I tend to lean towards #teambeliever but am open to being skeptical. Does that even make sense? Lol. Thanks for helping me keep my sanity through uncertain times.
United StatesUnited States2020-07-295JenPeters86Jen in PaI love the show and listen while i commute to and from work about an hour total a day. i am kind of middle of the road ...since i’m a believer but also realize that some over exaggerate stories and maybe stretch the truth time to time. and that bums me out since i really do love creepy stories! keep them coming! i don’t always vote #teambeliever but when i do i make sure it counts!
United StatesUnited States2020-09-245theoldbemlikesmacandcheeseSpectacularly SpookyI just started listening to this podcast to help make my jogs more interesting and I LOVE it!!! I’m kind of team in the middle, although I’ve had a couple experiences in my I can’t fully explain. The mix of history and ghost stories makes for a perfect combination and a spectacularly spooky podcast!
United StatesUnited States2020-10-145prairieparapodGreat Spooky Fun!I just recently started listening to this show and I'm really enjoying it. The topics are interesting, interviews are great, and I like the skeptic (Patrick) verses believer (Rebecca) debate format. Ultimately, once the evidence is presented it's left in the listeners hands to decide who won #TeamBeliever or #TeamSkeptic. I haven't experienced this type of audience engagement with any of the other podcasts I listen to.
United StatesUnited States2020-11-175Lizardbreath917Love the format of Ghostly!I have been listening to this podcast for just a few weeks, but I have gotten caught up already. I absolutely love the format of the debate weekly as well the fun banter between Pat and Rebecca. I find myself looking forward to hearing Rebecca’s ghost stories too. Thank you guys for this fun podcast to listen to. #TeamBeliever
United StatesUnited States2020-11-255HMG86Team Skeptical Believer...Is This a Thing?I’ve been a Ghostly listener from the beginning—and I can’t say enough good things about this podcast. I’ve a skeptical believer, meaning overall I am a believer but I realize not every story is rooted in reality and some storytellers embellish their experiences. I appreciate Rebecca’s ability to put the listener in the shoes of the person experiencing the ghostly encounter. I appreciate Pat’s ability to call BS when a story sounds far-fetched or inconsistent. I mostly appreciate the duo’s ability to mean respectful of one another’s position through lively debate and disagreement. We could use more of that in today’s world. Keep up the good work and the spookiness!
United StatesUnited States2020-12-095jva9929Awesome PodcastI am a newbie to this podcast. I absolutely love how the listeners are able to incorporate their own point of view in some way. The clash of history and ghost stories definitely keeps me thinking. I am sad that the pat’s facts giggle is not in all the past episodes lol but over all I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone and everyone. #teambeliever
United StatesUnited States2021-01-025Terri from the MountainsGhostly podcastVery informative and interesting. Skeptic versus believer conversations. Love the historical information provided. Enjoy the personalities of the two hosts.
United StatesUnited States2021-01-295gyspyskilletIncredible Entertainment!What a great show! After meeting up at C2E2 in Chicago last year, and finding out about the show I had to download it immediately. Boy I was disappointed at all, the content is great! I learn something new every time, keep it up man I always look forward to a new episode!
CanadaCanada2021-02-245menacing burglerAmazingly spookyMost paranormal podcasts are very one sided but this one isn’t! The two hosts take turns debating how real these ghost stories are and then they let the fans decide in the polls what they think. They also read the fans ghostly experiences or what they thought was ghost but turned out to be something else. I try to be skeptic but generally I’m a believer.
United StatesUnited States2021-02-255Dmolson89One of my favorite podcasts!Coming out of a visual age filled with fast moving high tech special effects, lights, explosions, and into a calm relaxing escape from reality with a mix of history. Two voices with the audible chemistry to help you kick back and leave your daily stress behind. An opportunity to slip into the spooky while being tethered to the science/history to pull you back when you get lost. Pat and Rebecca truly know how to entertain, inform, and bicker (in the best of ways) keeping the listener engaged and waiting for the next episode. Not only are they voices behind the mic but also personable and interactive throughout their social media outlets. This podcast is by far one of favorites and one that I share with friends and family every chance I get. The amount of effort put forth into each episode (visuals, promos, content, and top notch audio quality) is well noticed and places them at the top of my podcast list! Definitely worth the time to slow down your day kick back and enjoy! You will thank yourself later! Thank you to Pat & Rebecca for doing all that you do and giving us the chance to escape! Cheers!
United StatesUnited States2021-03-225JoSh The DogmanGhostly!If you have even a passing interest in the supernatural check out this podcast. Ghostly is in my top 3 favorite podcasts. Both hosts are terrific and make compelling cases for their stances on various supernatural and paranormal phenomena. Although I have not had any overt experiences, I do believe that people can and do experience unexplainable occurrences. However, unfortunately some people are dishonest and I like that Pat will call them out on it. And Pat and Rebecca, if you happen to read this review I have two suggestions. I would love to hear an episode on the experiences of the Snedeker family whom the 2009 film Haunting in Connecticut is based on. I found the story and the movie very frightening and would love to hear your thoughts on it. My other suggestion may not be possible but I think you guys should try to hit up Dan Aykroyd and see if he’d be willing to be a guest on the show. It’s a long shot but you never know. At any rate, thank you so much for what you do and keep up the excellent work.
United StatesUnited States2021-03-254Vfarrell66Good podcastI really like your podcast, I would have given you five stars except Pat can get on my nerves sometimes. Also you don’t always do all of the research. During your poltergeist podcast you didn’t mention Dominic Dunne having bruises on both sides of her neck in the last major scene of the movie when she jumps out of a car screaming. If you notice the bruise on both sides of her neck you will notice that they look like strangulation marks even though I’m sure the producers of the movie one of them to look like hickeys. But considering how she died “by strangulation“ I think this goes more towards the curse!
United StatesUnited States2021-04-015cygnetsongJust started listeningAfter hearing about this podcast via Terry Carnations Instagram page, I’m excited to say that I’m loving it. I’ve listened to 3 so far. I’m a huge fan of well done paranormal podcasts and I’m always on the lookout for more. I highly recommend if you love the paranormal ❤️
United StatesUnited States2021-03-315ruiz1971Ruiz71Great podcast and love how you talk it out and examine all the facts keep it up ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️every time thank you for a great podcast 👊
United StatesUnited States2021-04-175NessiefromSCGreat Listen!I love listening to this podcast. I’m a pretty hardcore #teamskeptic, but I love the ghost stories and the chemistry between the hosts. My only request is that Mondo sing more songs. ❤️👻
United StatesUnited States2021-06-1251Section leader1Spooky Fun 👻Not only is this podcast interesting because I learn about the history of places, people and their experiences, but listening to Rebecca and Pat debate for and against these ghostly hauntings/supernatural phenomena is so entertaining! I definitely am #teamskeptic but sometimes enough coincidences back to back are no longer just coincidences. . . As Bugs Bunny says “that’s all folks” , it’s more appropriate to leave with a : ‘Stay Spooked Folks’! 😱 -Anastasia
United StatesUnited States2021-06-235Rebecca (becka)Ghostly is amazingI listen to ghostly everyday at work and I mean ever day. It keeps me going and helps take the stress off which is funny seeings how it’s about ghosts and my work is extremely haunted. It’s entertaining and exciting and gives me something to look forward to when I’m at work. I absolutely love the hosts (even tho sometimes I yell at pat while listening) it never leaves me hanging and makes me wanna do research of my own. So glad I found this podcast. It gives me some excitement to my boring days.
United StatesUnited States2021-06-271Joey9852I don’t understand how this podcast ever got madeI’ll save you the time. The lady believes everything and the guy believes nothing. The hoops he jumps through to justify his point of view, the ghost stories are easier to believe than his conclusions.
United StatesUnited States2021-07-164MinkTheLink12Love ThisMe and my family found this while on our road trip and we are listening regularly now
United StatesUnited States2021-07-185ms112358Enjoyable and funI appreciate the twist they put on supernatural podcasts by having a debate between a believer and a skeptic. It’s fun to hear different stories and different takes on them. I definitely recommend!
United StatesUnited States2021-08-035Brandy from Gatlinburg, TNGreat show!Love this podcast! One of the main reasons I love ghost stories is learning about the history behind it. This has the history and the ghost stories then a debate about the facts and myths. I have been binging on this show over the last month!
United StatesUnited States2021-08-085TheRealSarahWilsonGreat mix of history and spookyI am an avid listener of spooky or true crime podcasts and this was refreshingly enjoyable! I love that show has various segments but also can get right to the point with little veering from the main topic. I tend to lean towards the skeptic side but I’m hoping there is something out there! You have a new fan!
United StatesUnited States2021-08-085Scott XavierGreat! I love Pat & Rebecca!!!Traveling home from Texas and tried a listen. Amazing! Before I’d catch small parts here and there, now I’m hooked. No office job so my attention span is usually 10 minutes in between running work chores. Professional radio voices who I could imagine some day going big time and getting a Sirius Xm channel. The world isn’t ghostly enough.

United StatesUnited States2021-09-255Father of JediThe only podcast I listen too!Longtime listener here and so far still a skeptic. If you are looking for a great show with both sides of the story, this is it! Both hosts are well rounded entertainers with the guests keeping it fresh. I usually listen while mowing the lawn and the mundane task takes on such an enjoyable experience that my lawn is quite well groomed. So if you are looking for something to improve those moments when you can’t read, watch something or play a game. Then I recommend you turn this on. The stand out episode for me so far was on SLEEP PARALYSIS, because as an avid lucid dreamer, sleep walker and waking dreamer. I experience sleep paralysis fairly regularly. When I was young, my waking dreams didn’t bother me too much because they did not turn into nightmares until I got older. The first when I was 10 and I woke in my brothers arms with my heart racing and confusion. I was recovering from the flu and had taken Nyquil, which still has a drastic effect on my dreams. I remember dreaming that night of going into my parents room and finding their drowned bodies in the water bed. My brother told me how I woke him by climbing down from our top bunk bed and went to our parents room only to begin screaming for my mother as I ran back. He chased me thru the house and finally he had to tackle me in the living room. I remember the tears on my face and how he asked me what I’d done, because my only words to him had been “I didn’t mean it, mommy and daddy come back!” Like most sleep walkers, my eyes had been open and my body navigated the house in reality but I was seeing the dream until I woke. Finally, I remembered that our parents had left early that morning. It took a bit for the feelings of horror to subside and I didn’t use Nyquil for a long time after. As the years passed I would sleep in late to enjoy lucid dreams and experimented with different white noises to see about waking in the dream world to control it. My first sleep paralyses happened at 13 years of age. We went to Silver Dollar City and I was napping in the back of the van. Normally my position in bed is on my stomach, but in the van I was on my back with arms resting on my chest. I can remember waking and hearing my parents chat in the front, but I couldn’t feel my body for quite a bit. It was the first time I felt panic as each word passed between mom and dad, while my body remained still. I had a strong desire for them to touch me so that I could feel my body again. If they just knew that I was awake but couldn’t move anything. They were pictured in my mind right there, but even my eyes might not have existed because I couldn’t feel them to make them open! Finally it passed and I was restored. I told no one as the episodes continued and I figured out that sleeping on my back was a recipe for lousy mornings. After finally telling my mother she told how sorry she was because its genetic from her. She had hoped to be the last in our family with it. Anyway, the research I have done revealed that we have a hormone that the body uses to shut down our muscles during dreams, so that we don’t act them out. There is footage of cats and dogs that are asleep with their sleep glands numbed and without the hormone to be still they walk, prowl and hunt in their dreams. People often have glands that can malfunction and leave them stuck while the body waits to secrete the waking stimulant and restore body function. When people say they see shadows during episodes, I truly have doubts because I’ve tried to open my eyes during episodes and can’t. The waking nightmare I experienced as a child shows how the dreams can fool us into seeing familiar settings with horrific new details. Soon my daughter will be 8 and like my mother, I hope this malady skips my child. My wife knows that if I am sleeping in and she finds me on my back, to touch me just in case I am trapped in my body silently avoiding panic as I wait to be brought back. Thanks Ghostly for great entertainment!
United StatesUnited States2021-09-305Chantraine1975Excellent and fascinating paranormal podcastThis is a must-listen podcast. It’s top-notch! The hosts are very knowledgeable and their voices are so soothing that you could probably sleep to their podcast, except the topics are so chilling! I listen on a podcast app. I’d like to name the app but I don’t think that’s allowed. But anyway, give them a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
NorwayNorway2021-10-065* Helen * in * Norway *Best Paranormal Podcast!I've been listening to Ghostly for quite some time, and it's consistently my favourite paranormal podcast. The fact that we have the skeptical perspective is what makes the podcast truly stand out (and I fall in the skeptic camp quite firmly!). However, I also love a good spooky story, and Ghostly provides beautifully written tales as well. The good well-rounded approach, plus the delightful banter between the hosts make Ghostly a fun, informative and even *cosy!* listen. Definitely recommended. <3 Long may Ghostly reign! <3
United StatesUnited States2021-10-125RebelRebel67How have I lived without you!Listening to this podcast is like having a conversation with my friends! My most favorite thing about a certain paranormal show I watch, which shall remain nameless, is the debunking. Because when it’s not debunked (totally bunked?) it’s so much more awesome and scary. I am 100% #TeamBeliever but cannot help but sometimes root for #TeamSkeptic. History. Ghosts. Paranormal. What else does a girl need?!
United StatesUnited States2021-11-095AirforcejonLET’S GO!!This is great concept for a podcast and it is executed flawlessly. This is definitely a podcast I wish was every week but you both are good enough that I forgive you haha. I’m almost caught up now and I’m not happy about it. Keep up the great work and looking forward to the next episode.
United StatesUnited States2021-11-195ravenkate416Love this podcastI love the debate even though I’m always team believer. I truly enjoy the history and the ghost stories paired together. I also love that the audio is smooth. it drives me wild when podcasts get super loud then super quiet. When you have time look into the grey lady at the Willard library in my hometown of Evansville Indiana. It was the story that got me into supernatural they even have a ghost cam running 24/7.

United StatesUnited States2022-01-235ar41097467!!AmazingI work night shift and listen to you guys constantly. Very entertaining. Your show keeps my thoughts together in an otherwise chaotic night.
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2022-02-245D Larson 2020Keep killing it guys!Makes you feel super involved as if I am right there when both host mention a thought I just had. Amazing content and perspective on these ghost stories. I also love the community you guys are building! It seems like a super fun community to be part of.
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2022-02-245Anthony D NSuper engaging and fun show.I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I have. It's a great conversation. I love the fact that when I think of a reason against a story, Patrick will instantly mention it!
AustraliaAustralia2022-03-035KristenC02A great listen!Have really enjoyed listening to this podcast for quite a long time now. It’s a great balance between those who believe, and those who don’t! Whilst most of the cases are US based, it’s still fascinating to hear the history behind the locations as well. - KC (Sydney, Australia)
United StatesUnited States2022-03-065Dr.rickloftusBest paranormal podcast for all audiencesPat and Rebecca are delightful hosts who manage to mix facts and mystery with an easy banter that makes me wish after each episode that the stories they tell had gone on longer. My only “kids” are the 4-legged kind but if I had human children I’d enjoy listening with the whole family, as I think all audiences- even (especially?) skeptics would enjoy the friendly debate format and the invitation for the audience to put their nickel down as skeptic, believer, or the in-between “ske-liever”.
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2022-03-095taigosheaSuper interestingThis is such an awesome and fun show. Although I am a skeptic, I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and the rational behinds validating whether or not a story is real or not. And can I just say the audio quality of this show is striaght fire!
United StatesUnited States2022-03-175Lawrie106Love this podcast!!!I just recently found this podcast and I absolutely love it! I typically lean towards #TeamBeliever but Pat Facts definitely get me thinking and asking questions I normally wouldn’t. Thanks for all you do! I dread the day I am all caught up and actually have to wait the 2 weeks for an episode!
United StatesUnited States2022-04-195Melanie In OregonA Fun Podcast That I Always Look Forward ToI’ve been listening to Ghostly Podcast since day one and haven’t missed a single episode. Like a fine wine, it only gets better as it ages. Like Rebecca, I am #TeamBeliever. However, I appreciate how she is open to Pat’s skeptic view and isn’t quick to believe every single thing. Although I feel like Pat’s skeptic logic is sometimes flawed and often makes me roll my eyes at his theories, he does listen with an open mind and doesn’t mock or make fun of those of us who believe. It’s an entertaining and fun podcast that makes you think, and the #PatFacts give you an interesting history lesson. Makes me wish I had paid more attention in my high school history classes! You guys are doing great, keep up the good work!
United StatesUnited States2022-04-305michiganchrissyNew listenerI found this podcast last week and I am really enjoying it so far! I like how they tell the stories and then ask the opinions and give ratings of how haunted. I am right there with Rebecca because I do believe in the paranormal and hauntings very much. But I like the different opinions of her and Pat. Will definitely continue listening! Thank you for a great show
United StatesUnited States2022-05-255bdittuheheufMy overdue reviewI’ve been listening to this show for close to a year and I really like Pat and Rebecca as a team. You get a discussion on a haunted subject and the history.. then they rate it on how haunted they think it is. Good show, keep ‘em coming 🙂
United StatesUnited States2022-09-235creper FelixBI love ghost and spooky stuff!I found out about this podcast when I did a paint job for their new studio! Very interesting content. Thanks again for the bachelors grove cemetery info. That place definitely has a presence! 👻
United KingdomUnited Kingdom2022-09-305ReeKee294I’m a Ghostly fan!I had to write a review as I love your show. It’s nice to have a fellow believer of the same name! Your witty and fun debates are brilliant and you’s always manage to make me chuckle. Thank you and especially for the Oakley Court episode - I watched Rocky Horror because of it and have been obsessed ever since! Keep up the good work ☺️💜
United StatesUnited States2023-02-125Faye 🤍Very goodI found out about this podcast when i first got this phone. I listened to this podcast almost everyday. I love this podact a lot. I always listen to it when i draw, color, and go walking. I recommend this podcast to anyone who likes paranormal things.
United StatesUnited States2023-02-245You know who t isLet’s make Pat happyOriginal listener (found a preview on podcoin and started day 1). This is a great podcast. I have yet to find an episode that isn’t interesting. The debates are fun and it’s great listening to Rebecca sometimes convince Pat. The extras they provide for Patreon supporters are great too. Great job guys!
United StatesUnited States2023-03-195Brendan412Love this podcastI’ve been listening to the podcast for sometime and love every episode. Even though I’m a skeptical believer…. Got to give Pat credit, he’s slowly putting me on the path of a non believer (kinda lol) Very fun podcast, it shows that we can have debates and share different opinions but still have respect for each other. 5 ⭐️
United StatesUnited States2023-04-083lynneandcoMixed feelingsI like the places and the historical information as well as the activity information. But what puts me off is when Pat takes his non believing to a ridiculous level. Instead of “it could be “ or “maybe this is but” ….. he dismisses everything. And some is his alternate explanations are more ridiculous than anything. He is always thinking things are coincidence or made up by people. And always wants evidence or to have seen it with his own eyes. Which is not how these things work. Just a bit too much dismissal for me which is why I find it interesting that he even wants to keep looking into hauntings.
AustraliaAustralia2023-04-305humbirtThought provokingInteresting format that delves into paranormal historical characters, events and places and the debates on the stories and facts on each subject. Would love to hear Rebecca and Pat discuss the Lizzie Borden mystery
United StatesUnited States2023-05-195Custom_cleanersJust started listening…A friend recommended this podcast… so glad she did!! Love it!!
United StatesUnited States2023-05-314katydarling2I enjoy it! (With a little shade)I enjoy this show, I really do and I don’t mean anything in a combative way but come on Pat. Can you read this in a light hearted tone 😅. The thing that makes me crazy and the reason I didn’t give the show 5 starts is that I feel like Pat is always casting shade at Rebecca. I haven’t listened to the whole back catalogue but every time they give there final arguments he likes to point out that Becca cheats and not once have I heard her go over. Let it go Pat. Becca does a really good job of telling a spooky story at the beginning but Pat is so dismissive and I feel like the whole time Becca sounds apologetic for how spooky everything feels to her. Pat dismisses her evidence and his arguments don’t hold anymore water than the evidence. He likes to chalk everything up to coincidence. How many things have to line up perfectly for any coincidence? Any coincidence is super natural so thanks for strengthening the argument Pat. Or he says it’s environmental, and I like to hear what he thinks it could be but he also has no evidence to support his claims. “The window could have been open.” Yeah, maybe. The one where he said the door had to close really slow or super fast and angry… is there some scientific research on that? I listened to one episode with a guest that was more on Becca's side and she sounded more confident and then it showed in the polls! That’s the other thing, when Pat wins he wins but when Becca’s percentage is over half they tie?! Na, na. Also, don’t be so dismissive of people’s “feelings”. That’s what makes an experience what it is. I’m obviously a believer and I really do enjoy the show but I had to give a little shade back to Pat. XOXO
United StatesUnited States2023-07-163WILART13Mixed feelingsI appreciate that you can tell the time and effort put in by both hosts when it comes to research, you do hear they do care about their work. The thing is, both of them have kinda flat sounding voices without much inflection or excitement, I find I zone out and missed things because there isn’t a hook. It has a scripted sounds to it, like they are reading even the jokes off a piece of paper, there isn’t enough of a natural flow, maybe a lack of chemistry between the hosts 🤷🏼‍♂️ making it not sound like a genuine as I’m sure they would like it too. The often dead air spaces between when a joke is being added in or a “skeptical” statement for a reaction. I think Rebecca should sound more engaging when taking about the background and stories, I think Pat should sound more enthralled into figuring out what or if these things could be true. One big note, when it comes to the research, I think looking up and making sure you know how things are supposed to be pronounced is meaningful, even can be used as a education journey for the listening… aka “I thought it was this, but after reaching the name, this is how you say it’s and this is why….”. The sound effects and music to me, are over done and not crisp enough with the transitions, like they are still trying to figure out what they are doing and it’s throwing off a natural flow which I feel they struggle with already. The music break’s definitely need to be much shorter. I am writing this as honest feedback, I want you to improve and continue to put out your content, representing the Midwest/Chicago and how awesome we are. I wish y’all the best, keep going!

United StatesUnited States2023-10-115AshleyApples83My FAVORITE spooky podcastI just finished listening to all the episodes and I’m bummed that I have to wait for a new one now (ghostly x, I’m coming for you). I really enjoy the format of this podcast where the history is discussed along with the ghost stories, and the believer vs. skeptic debate between the hosts is an interesting concept and always fun to listen to. They’ve also had very interesting guests on the show and a good range of topics. I’m also appreciative that it’s clean (so I can listen at work or when my kiddo is in earshot). I enjoy Pat’s sense of humor and Rebecca’s creativity. Such a good pair with great chemistry.
United StatesUnited States2023-11-304DezeeIIYea,but what if……Pat, that seems to be your favorite saying when she actually starts making sense of what’s going on in a given situation.
United StatesUnited States2024-01-195Det Marty HartEntertainingMy favorite podcast is Gruesome. I am all caught up. Needing a fix, I began looking for a paranormal podcast where the host(s) aren’t screaming or dropping F bombs every 30 seconds. Basically I was looking for quality content presented by grown ups. This is it. Very entertaining. Being a native Chicagoan (southside), I’ve been privy to several of the stories. I look for logical explanations and I am pretty good at debunking claims. Having said that, I’ve seen some weird stuff. I can’t dismiss ghosts. Great podcast. Highly recommended.
United StatesUnited States2024-02-104jellybean60056Fun podcastI love ghost story podcasts and stumbled upon yours and was ecstatic to see so many Illinois ghost stories, being a Chicago girl myself. I enjoy hearing the banter of believer versus skeptic. Keep up great work.
United StatesUnited States2024-02-232Thatphillychik32Is this a ghost podcast or history podcast?The Disney episode was such a let down. 30 minutes on the biography of Walt Disney and like 10 min or less on actual paranormal discussion. It shouldn’t have been about Walt’s life story. Where were the ghost stories?
