understand her. As a kid, her first best friend was a ghost-boy named Nathanial, and she lived in a supernatural world. She investigated many cases with the Black River Paranormal group and has now formed a new group, Shadow Stalkers. She’s written multiple books on the paranormal including Something Wicked, Stalking Shadows and Is Your House Haunted? She is what Fox calls a psychic healer. She mends the rips between this world and the next.

“A demon’s purpose is to turn your soul away from God.” Debi Chestnut.

Debi’s talks about several of her paranormal experiences on the show: growing up with a dead boy, fighting a demon that nearly consumed her life, putting to rest elementals in a barn that were conjured to protect the souls of dead children. She shares with us one of her favorite stories, The Screaming Woman, which has been narrated by one of our voice actors. It’s about the ghost of a murdered woman and her lost child in a mid-west farmhouse.

We tell another true ghost story, Long Distance, about a woman who won’t give up on her boyfriend after he gets married, even after she dies.

Fox shares another round of Clown News. The clowns are spreading north, and they’re coming for you. This is a perfect example of modern American folklore in action.


James Chambers returns to talk about the Horror Writers Association’s annual Halloween Haunts, a series of essays, stories, photos and thoughts from members of the Horror Writers Association that he will put up each day until Halloween.


Monk Turner contributes a song to get us into the spooky Halloween spirit. “Halloween Night” from his album Calendar.

Monk Turner has produced more than 25 concept albums using a collective of monk-turnermusicians who share his passion for creating freeform, genre-defying music. Among some of his accomplishments, Turner’s composition with musician Fascinoma won a competition held by radio station WFMU and the Free Music Archive for an alternative version of the popular “Happy Birthday to You,” entitled, “It’s Your Birthday!” In addition to his prolific catalog, his songs have been featured in movies, television programs and advertisements. The track “Judicious Jason” from Instrumental Friends Part 3 broke a Guinness World Record when 2,231 students chose the song to do history’s largest choreographed ribbon dance. His albums are available for free download via Creative Commons license on Bandcamp, Free Music Archive, and Archive.org. They can also be streamed via Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube Music, and Beats/MediaNet.
