Listener Mail and Questions

Listener mail is a ghost story about a doppelganger sister, but is she just a figment of the listener’s imagination? Have a spooky story or question of your own (or someone you know)? Send your story or question to info@ghostlypodcast.com or leave a voicemail at 630-448-2138 and we might read or share it on the podcast. You could be on a future episode of Ghostly!

Ghost Story – The Country House

Listen to Rebecca tell a ghost story inspired by her research into the stories told about the Country House.

History of The Country House

Instead of our traditional history, listen to an interview with Graveside Paranormal. Neal and Steve tell us all about the history of the restaurant, the stories told about it, and the results of their own investigation. Learn about their amazing spirit box then check out their investigation video (and many more videos) on YouTube

The Debate

Rebecca has some strong evidence to debate. The group debate stories of a woman in the window, a haunted bathroom, a juke box that plays on its own, and shutters that all open at once. What will they rate each story?
