Are Doppelgängers Real
56:41

German for "double-walker," these paranormal entities are exact unknown replicas of people that are said to be bad omens and harbingers of bad news, misfortune, and death. Essentially, bad juju. But, what exactly could they be? Simply evil twins with mischievous intent? Or perhaps could these duplicates be us from a different or alternate dimension? Listen now to hear our thoughts!

Could Zombies Be Real?
01:05:53

This month we discuss a major, popular topic that Tyler particularly loves very much: zombies. Of course, the pop culture, Walking Dead style of zombies and the George Romero zombies are not how they originated. Actually, Haitian voodoo is where you can trace the idea and folklore of a zombie back to. But are they real? A lot of existing parasites and illnesses tell us potentially. But, you’ll have to listen to find out!

Haunted Waverly Hills Sanatorium
01:01:27

We travel to Louisville, Kentucky, and discuss one of the most haunted locations in the United States. Originally a hospital for folks suffering from tuberculosis, a wide range of treatments were conducted on patients and thousands of patients died during the Waverly Hills Sanatorium's medical tenure. They even turned a supplies tunnel into a body chute to transport dead patients late at night. Now, countless paranormal investigators have combed the many hallways of Waverly Hills Sanatorium and claim it is haunted by various ghosts and entities, such as Tommy, the Creeper, the Shy Lady, and the Screaming Lady. But, is it true? Listen now!

The Phoenix Lights
42:46

This week, we finally venture back into the wonderful world of aliens. But first, let’s take a trip to the 90s! Back in 1997, thousands of folks in Arizona saw what they claimed as a huge object in the night sky - 6000 feet long - with countless lights. It blocked out the stars and was completely silent as it moved across the sky. Could this be proof of aliens? Or perhaps an unknown military ship? Listen now!

Tyler’s Skinwalker Experience
47:03

Welcome to the 100th episode of Believing the Bizarre. This week, we tackle a very personal paranormal encounter. Tyler will finally discuss his (potential) Skinwalker experience. We say potential because we don’t technically know what it was. Late at night in 2013, Tyler and his friend Ethan were driving in rural Northeast Ohio. Having a good time and singing Goo Goo Dolls, something crossed their paths and terrified them to their bones. But, is it believable? Tyler is biased, but listen now! Also, we dive into more skinwalker encounters found from the World Wide Web.

The Haunted Hospital
40:46

This week we tackle another Listener Submission story, coming to us from Sarah in Dover. As you can tell by the title - things are about to get pretty spooky in this hospital. Hospitals are already full of intense energy, but if you add in a few entities that like sneaking up behind you and ripping a vacuum out of your hand, things escalate pretty quickly. But, is this hospital truly haunted? Listen now to find out!

The Mysterious Alaska Triangle
01:13:14

This week is the perfect blend of paranormal, mystery, and...true crime! Similar to both the Lake Michigan Triangle and Missing 411, Alaska has its own bizarre triangle (from Anchorage to Juneau to formerly Barrow, now Utqiaġvik) where planes and people often go missing. Could it simply be the rough and brutal terrain? Or could strange energy, black pyramids, and aliens be the cause? Listen now!

Could Fairies Be Real
54:47

In today's episode, we discuss why we shouldn’t trust pretty ladies in green dresses that appear out of nowhere offering food we have always craved. Maybe a fairy can help us find something that “went missing” but at what cost. And what is a fairy’s favorite food? Probably some natural honey or something like that? Or maybe fairies are scarier than we think… but are they believable? Listen now!

Annabelle The Possessed Doll
50:51

Let's go back a few decades to arguably the most infamous and haunted doll of all time - Annabelle. Unlike the Annabelle and Conjuring movie counterpart, she is not a porcelain terrifying toy. Instead, she is a generic raggedy Ann doll. But, that is all that is generic about her. It is claimed that she can move on her own, write creepy notes, and cause physical harm especially when you’re behind the wheel. But, is it all real? Listen now!

Welcome to another episode of Believing the Bizarre. This week, we head South to the Bayou and discuss the Big Foot-like cryptid, the Honey Island Swamp Monster. Honey Island Swamp is a preserved, and relatively undisturbed, marshland. Essentially, the perfect location for a 7 to 8-foot ball, hairy, yellow-eyed cryptid. Sightings have been reported since the 1960s and continue to this day. But, is the Cajun Sasquatch believable? Listen today.

The McKamey Manor
59:45

This week is a little different since we’ll be talking about a topic that is definitely real…but also unbelievable! For those of you that enjoy haunted houses, you might want to think twice about partaking in the McKamey Manor. In fact, that is what the owner, Russ, says too! But, why? Countless visitors have claimed they experienced more torturous activities rather than living out a horror movie fantasy. This includes waterboarding, injections, spitting, pushing, teeth and nails removed, shaved heads, and more. So, would you ever consider visiting the McKamey Manor? Listen now.

Welcome to another episode of Believing the Bizarre. This week, we discuss a cryptid, which is what it's technically known as - but we have our questions, called the Black Stickman Phenomena. Essentially, this entity is exactly how it sounds, a super tall, stick figure-like entity with no face, eyes, nose, or facial features. Some say they are inter-dimensional beings while some believe they are ancient alien beings. Whatever they are, they have gathered a lot of encounters over the years. But, are they believable?

It also has a pool, basketball court, music hall, and batting cages. Oh, and apparently it is haunted. Tales of books flying around, shadow figures, and disembodied voices surround this iconic library. But, are they true? Listen now to find out.

Essentially, these are Icelandic pranksters that come to town one by one during the last 13 nights before Yule, and perform a particular task. Some weird and some even weirder. We also discuss the terrifying troll, Gryla, and the big black Yule Cat. But how believable is all of this Christmas fun? Listen now.

”The Hands Resist Him” Haunted Painting
51:37

Let me paint you a picture - this week, we discuss one of the most haunted paints of all time, The Hands Resist Him. Painted by Bill Stoneham in 1972, The Hands Resist Him was originally just intended to pay the bills and was inspired by a poem written by his first wife and a photograph he found of himself. However, the painting seems to negatively impact everyone it touches, including a few celebrities, and famously terrified the masses when it was listed on eBay in 2000. But, is the painting truly haunted? Listen now!

Thanks to Darren O'Neill for allowing us to use "The Hands Resist Him."

The London Dungeon was opened in the 1970s on Tooley Street as a museum of various medieval torture instruments and has grown over the years into a massive actor-led tourist attraction with rides. The rides aren’t the only thing entertaining guests, however. Countless employees and guests have claimed to see spirits, shadows, children, and more. But, is it believable? Listen now to find out.

Welcome to a LIVE HALLOWEEN special! This week, we literally travelled to Loveland, Ohio and recorded our episode on the Loveland Frogman live on Instagram and Facebook. So, what is the Loveland Frogman? It is a four-foot, half humanoid half frog-like creature with leathery skin that was spotted by business men back in the 1950s and a few police officers in the 1970s. He is known to wear rags of clothes, stand on his hind legs, and wave a magical wand that shoots fireballs. Crazy? Perhaps. A ton of fun? Absolutely. We even find a way to tie Pokemon Go into this.

Legend says if you travel to Bunny Man Bridge, walk under the bridge at midnight, close your eyes, and chant, “Bunny Man” three times, a man in an off-white, ragged rabbit costume will approach you and quickly slash your throat with an ax or hatchet.

Leap Castle is in Offaly county and has been around for centuries. It was even burnt down in 1922 due to tension of loyalties between Britain and Ireland. However, there are many that say ghosts, and other spirits, have deep roots in Leap Castle, like The Priest in the bloody chapel,or Emily and Charlotte who play in the main entrance, or the slaughtered Red Lady who died a tragic death. Others say there is a far more sinister entity that stalks the castle, known as an elemental. But, do we find it believable? Listen now!

Either it looks bigger, or its neck is longer, it's standing on two legs, or even has claws instead of hooves. Definitely not something you want to see staring down your headlights as you are driving late at night. But, how believable is the Not Deer? Listen now to find out.

What is the Ouija Board Demon? Can an entity named ZOZO harm and haunt people? Can a self-created ouija board conjure spirits? Welcome to another episode of Believing the Bizarre. It's listener submission time again.

Listener Submission Collection Vol. 1
47:37

Welcome to another episode of Believing the Bizarre. This week, we are mixing it up! As you know, every couple of weeks we put out an episode that is a Listener Submission - essentially an episode dedicated to a listener's personal paranormal encounter.

However, occasionally we receive a submission that is shorter and cannot fill an entire episode. We feel these episodes deserve their time in the limelight, too. So, welcome to the beginning of our Listener Submission Collections!

This week, we have three episodes that range from cave-dwelling creatures and UFOs to a ghost investigation gone wrong. But, how #believable are they? Listen now!

*Also - you may or may not be finally getting some of Tyler and Charlie’s personal paranormal encounters in this episode…

The Chemtrails Conspiracy
51:32

Let's take a look at a very popular theory - chemtrails. Or, as they are known in the scientific community, contrails. Environmentalists claim these smokey streaks we see behind planes in the sky are simply water vapor that turns into ice droplets - mixed with carbon dioxide and minimal sulfur from the plane’s engine. However, many believe that these streaks are the cause of illness, population control, weather manipulation, and even mind control! But, how do the facts stack up? Listen now.

Grab a blanket and stay warm listening to this episode! This week, we discuss the Dyatlov Pass Incident. In 1959, a group of Russian hikers died in the Ural Mountains. Although they were an experienced hiking group, they died in incredibly unsure ways - leaving their tent in subzero temperatures, wearing minimal clothing. While some were victims of hypothermia, others experienced odd internal injuries, missing eyeballs, a missing tongue, and even hints of radiation. Could they truly have died due to the natural, arctic elements? Or was something more supernatural at play? Listen now!

This week we travel to Scotland, and if you are traveling along a river and you see a horse…don’t touch that horse! It could be a Kelpie; a shape-shifting mythical creature that lures in human prey and attempts to get people to touch them so they can drown and eat them. Oh, and the only way to tell whether a horse is truly a horse or if it is a Kelpie is by trying to drown it…as a Kelpie cannot drown. Is this beginning to sound a little ridiculous? We know. And that’s just the beginning! Listen now.

The Conspiracy of Princess Diana’s Death
44:46

Let’s throwback the clock to 1997 and put our conspiracy hats on! This week, we discuss the death of Princess Diana. A tragic royal traffic accident led to a ton of scrutiny, nitpicking, and conspiracy talk. Was the driver drunk or was it a master plan? Was there a scandalous pregnancy that sealed Princess Diana’s demise? If this sounds a little like a soap opera, you’re absolutely right. And we can’t wait for you to listen!

The Hauntings of Suicide Forest
44:57

*Tigger warning* For those that suffer from suicidal thoughts, tendencies, or have painful memories related to suicide, please do not listen to this episode if you are not comfortable with the topic of suicide. For all of those in need, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline is 800-273-8255.

This week, we take a step into the unknown and discuss Aokigahara, also known as Suicide Forest. With an estimated 500 suicides since the 1950s, Suicide Forest is one of the most popular destinations for people to tragically take their own lives. Combining that with the eerie, thick trees and hardened lava floor that promotes intense silence and the feeling of isolation, it can be a haunting location. But, is it truly haunted by Yurei - vengeful, lingering spirits that trick and lure visitors of Aokigahara to their doom? Listen now to find out.

Considered the most haunted night club in America, Bobby Mackey's Music World has a dark past involving a slaughterhouse, Mafia transactions, death, exorcisms, and a bloody well that is considered a portal to Hell. That's quite an impressive list of haunting activity, but it is it enough to sway Tyler and Charlie to rank the venue as Believable? Listen now to find out!

The Existence of Nibiru aka Planet X
41:12

What could be lurking out there in space, deep at the end of our solar system and tugging on our furthermost planets? Could it be a rogue planet floating around and waiting 3,600 years to pass Earth? This week we discuss Nibiru/Planet X. From wild conspiracies with ZetaTalk to the 2012 Mayan Calendar ending, there were many believers that Nibiru would pass by and end life on Earth. While it didn’t happen in 2003, 2012, or 2017, could Earth’s days be numbered? Listen to find out!

What could possible be scary about the most magical place on Earth? Besides your wallet, apparently a lot. This episode we tackle Haunted Disney.

The Legend of the Kushtaka

This week we tackle the Legend of the Kushtaka - Tlingit lore that takes place around southern Alaska. This shape-shifting, otter-like creature has been terrorizing people for centuries. The most prominent encounter, occurring way back in 1900, comes from Harry Colp and his story, “The Strangest Story Ever Told,” involving his fellow prospector friend, Charlie (no relation to Believing the Bizarre co-host) and his horrifying experience at Thomas Bay. Could this Skinwalker-like creature be real or just an old wise tale to keep kids from wandering around at night? Listen now to find out!

The Kelly Hopkinsville Alien Encounter
27:24

In 1955, between Kelly and Hopkinsville, Kentucky a bizarre encounter took place involving the Taylor and Sutton families and little green men. From backflipping aliens to cops ignoring green lights, this episode has it all. But was it all just hysteria and drugs? Or did they really witness small aliens creeping around their farmhouse? A few notes: it took Charlie approximately 15 tries to say “Hopkinsville” at the end and if anyone draws what this event would look like as a ballet, we will post it on our social media platforms.

Hailing from Dover, Massachusetts, this creepy little cryptid has a tiny body with a huge, bulbous head, long spindly arms and legs, big eyes, and is an orange-is color. We break down four sightings, four potential theories, and discuss whether or not The Dover Demon could be a cryptid, grey alien, or a baby moose.

All hands on deck! We have finally gotten spooky again. Well, we think so. Get out your pencils, notebooks, and pocketbook! We’re heading to college. In this homegrown episode from our home state, we break down the ghost stories surrounding Ohio University. We discuss haunted dorms, cuddling ghosts, mysterious deaths, and the Athens Lunatic Asylum (rough name, right?). But, is it a little odd that almost every single dorm at Ohio University has its own ghost stories? Find out if we find the hauntings of Ohio University believable or not! Spoiler alert: the real horror is tuition and room and board costs.

We tackle a crazy existential question - what if humans are not naturally from planet Earth? That’s absolutely crazy! We have to be from Earth, right? Well, when you start looking at some of the stark differences between humans and many other species, the contrasts begin to stack up. In this episode, we present 6 potential pieces of evidence as to why humans are not from Earth along with a couple of theories. Apple puts Believing the Bizarre in the “natural science” category, so this episode is for ya’ll! Also, we don't actually hate Detroit! Also also, we will get spooky again soon, we promise.

Hailing from Pine Barren, NJ, The Jersey Devil is said to have the head of a goat/horse, leathery wings, clawed hands, and hooved feet. We discuss this cryptid’s origin stories, along with some of the more popular sightings, from Joseph Boneparte to the famous 1909 frenzy. The urban legend is incredibly popular and people swear on their lives that they have seen it, but could it just be mass hysteria and a proud locational relic? Listen now to find out!

The Lost Colony of Roanoke

While you have likely heard about the Lost Colony of Roanoke, you may not be updated on all of the theories surrounding this mysterious event. As a refresher, a group of 100+ people vanished without a trace on Roanoke Island in 1590. All that was left was the word "Croatoan" etched into a tree trunk. Could it have been a slaughter due to native Americans or cannibalism? Or perhaps a satanic ritual? Maybe even Aliens! Get your #2 pencils ready because there WILL be a quiz. Dive with us into the unknown and unusual as we decide what could have caused this mysterious event to have taken place.

This week, we discuss the Chicago urban legend of Resurrection Mary. This story follows the tragic tale of Mary, who passed away due to a hit and run car accident in the 1930s and ever since has been hitchhiking only to disappear near Resurrection Cemetery, where she was supposedly buried.

Bonus: The Haunted Helltown, Ohio
01:03:40

We decided to upload our LIVE Halloween special from Helltown, Ohio. The original location we planned on filming was closed, so we had to go off the beaten bath and up a trail to find a space, but it worked!

From ghost hearses and broken down school buses to mutant snakes and satanic cults, Helltown lives up to its reputation. It even influenced a town in the popular video game, Red Dead Redemption 2.

But, are the urban legends true or a bunch of nonsense? Find out on our first-ever live podcast! If you'd like to watch the accompanying video, head over to our Instagram!

The Multi-Universe and Parallel Dimension Theory
26:33

Whoa! A listener submission episode that is about… multi-universes!? That is right!

Welcome to Believing the Bizarre, where we dive into the unknown and unusual and tell you whether or not we find it believable. This week, we take a look at stories from Isaac and Nick, who both have had run-ins with potential parallel universes. Isaac experiences what he calls deizers, which is a combination of deja vu and seizers. In these moments, he witnesses small glimpses of what could be other universes colliding with our own. But what happens when his realty starts shifting and these episodes become more frequent?

Likewise, Nick had a terrifying experience where he was tired at the wheel late at night and crashed into a disabled car on the shoulder of the road…until he blinked and found himself 200 yards away from the vehicle. Are these experiences internal - the mind playing tricks? Or the external - truly multi-universes colliding?

Listen and discover our thoughts! Also, important note - Tyler was incredibly sleep-deprived during the week we recorded...if you can't tell!

Or did guilt and despair (along with frigid weather conditions) push George Brown’s sanity to the edge? Listen to find out! By the way, what Tyler was trying to say is Epistolary, which is when a novel is written in a letter format.

From accidents, injuries, and even a significant amount of deaths, both The Exorcist and Poltergeist have terrified people on and off the set for many years.

Derek and Maria Broaddus bought a beautiful dream house only to begin receiving anonymous letters from The Watcher that described spying on their children, their behavior with the house, and the request for “young blood.”

Is this creepy watcher just a prankster with poor taste or a dangerous and unstable stalker?

The Flatwoods Monster

We return to West Virginia for this legend, but instead of Mothman, we are discussing the Flatwoods Monster. In September of 1952, a group of boys playing football witnessed a pulsing red light fly across the sky and land on a nearby hill.

They ran home to tell their mother what they had seen. Naturally, she was in disbelief, so altogether they went back to the scene of the strange object in the sky. What they witnessed next was something terrifying that they'd never forget.

We take a close look at his story and breakdown whether his experience, his ailments, and the doctor that examined him stand the test of time. Or, whether or not he was massively influenced by a local UFO magazine.

The Legend of Mothman
30:08

In 1966, the West Virginia town of Point Pleasant had multiple witnesses and encounters with this creature that had wings and red eyes. This was the beginning of Mothman, which became a local urban legend. Its appearances ultimately foreshadowed the collapse of the Silver Bridge in the Ohio River in 1967. In this episode, we discuss some of the encounter stories and theorize what Mothman could possible be.

A little unique opening to this Believing the Bizarre episode! Tyler wanted to make the creepypasta, The Expressionless, into an episode but wasn't able to find an angle to make it work. Because, you know, it's fake.

So we read that story in full before diving into the unsettling story surrounding La Pascualita. This legend involves a bridal shop mannequin that may have actually been a real human. Some say the extremely life-like mannequin's eyes will follow you around the shop and she even moves places.

Find out our theories on whether or not this could be true as we look at other similar circumstances and discuss how the uncanny valley explains the creepiness of mannequins and dolls.

The Nameless Horror of 50 Berkeley Square
28:12

*Disclaimer: due to a COVID-19 scare, this episode was recorded social distantly. The audio is a little subpar compared to what you’re used to, but the good news is, we are both fine.* But, you probably care more about the audio than our health. That’s hurtful. But anyway, what is this episode about?

Oh yes, so…what makes 50 Berkeley Square such a historically haunted and terrifying home? Well, if you can get through the London jokes and terrible British accents, you’ll find out!

This London home's second floor houses an unnamed tentacle monster that seems to be right from HP Lovecraft himself. We dive into the many folks that lived in this home over the years, discussing their tales and tragedies and let you know whether or not the hauntings of 50 Berkeley Square are believable.

The Witching Hour
25:33

What is The Witching Hour? Why do so many people seem to wake up around 3 AM? We dive into theories surrounding The Witching Hour aka The Devil's Hour, along with a few urban legends and prominent stories.

We asked a question on Twitter if anyone had questions regarding The Witching Hour, and one response was wondering why so many people wake up at 3 am. We look at paranormal, historical, and scientific reasons for the disrupted slumber. Finally, we discuss and rate whether or not we find The Witching Hour believable.

The 27 Club Conspiracy
24:25

Are you familiar with the 27 Club? This is a club you definitely don't want to join

It is an exclusive, yet tragic, group of ultra-talented artists that met their demise a little too soon. The obvious culprit appears to be suicide and drugs, however, is there a darker conspiracy at play?

This week, we look at a few theories, ranging from selling souls to lizard people, and discuss what could cause so many talented and famous stars to abruptly leave this world.

Have you ever heard a loud boom in the sky with seemingly no cause, no thunderstorm, no plane? What about metallic clashing, trumpet sounds, or a deep hum? If so, you have likely experienced a Skyquake. From meteorites to methane gas, and even UFOs, there are many theories that try to explain the cause of these mysterious noises in the sky.

The Slender Man as a Tulpa
24:56

Since we can pinpoint the exact origin of The Slender Man lore that took the internet by storm about 5-10 years ago, we can simply put a pin in it an call this urban legend unbelievable, right? Maybe not. We investigate the idea that with so many people putting thoughts and energy into The Slenderman is it possible that, like a Tulpa, The Slenderman could have become a conscious being. This episode ends the launching day binge-a-thon of Believing the Bizarre. Thank you to everyone who has jumped on board and we look forward to providing you another paranormal episode next Tuesday!

The Mandela Effect
28:55

What if something you believe to be true ended up being false? What if you have a distinct memory of an event occurring, yet you discover it never did? Could it be collective misremembering? Or could we be in a parallel universe? Today we tackle the theory of the Mandela Effect and look a few examples such as The Berenstain Bears, Skechers, Rich Uncle Pennybags, C3PO, and more. Finally, we discuss if The Mandela Effect is more likely to be Earth living in a simulation, a human-caused new dimension, or psychological theories such as groupthink and priming.
