Longtime friends Nile and Kyle are the leading conspiracy, cryptozoology, and paranormal experts in their fields. Well, at least in their apartment. Join them and a revolving door of friends every Sunday for a deep dive into the curious, the unexplained, and the outright weird.
 
Husband and wife team Zoe and Mike look into topics of the paranormal, folklore, cryptids, hauntings, UAP’s and aliens, conspiracies, and all manner of weird Forteana. Join us as we take it in turns presenting topics to each other, which we then discuss in our own irreverent manner - usually ending up talking about biscuits or something - and get in touch with your questions, comments and your own stories!
 
This podcast series represents the work of 28 students from Centre College who took "HIS 435: Spirits, Gods and Ghosts of East Asia" together in January 2017. They received no prompt or recommended categories from their instructor, and built these episodes from scratch themselves with virtually no prior audio engineering experience. These episodes represent a diverse collection of student research into broader categories of East Asian folklore and ghost tales.

We all love something cooling during the summer heat. And what can be more refreshing than a spooky story that makes you shiver. But sorry, I can't handle scary stories. They are, well, scary.

Hey there friends and weirdos! We can hardly believe it, but it's been five whole years of It Gets Weird Podcast!
