JIM HAROLD: A chilling story of a woman who experienced a very real haunting – up next on the Paranormal Podcast.

[intro music]

This is the Paranormal Podcast with Jim Harold.

JIM HAROLD: Welcome to the program. I’m Jim Harold. So glad to be with you once again. Do us a big favor: if you are in the New York, Boston, Philadelphia, or Pittsburgh areas, please get your tickets for my tour today. Go to jimharold.com/tour to get your tickets for the Stories From Around the Campfire Tour coming up soon!

You know, we kind of stepped out on faith with this, and we’re working with some professionals, but the truth is to do a tour like this is pretty intense, and it’s not cheap. We have to hit certain ticket numbers if we are going to make this a feasible thing. So if you want us to go through with the tour and actually make it happen, we need you to buy some tickets. We got over 600 respondents when we did our recent survey about doing a tour, so we thought, naturally, it was a slam dunk. This many people responded very quickly. In fact, our tour people told us they’d never seen such a response. So we were pretty excited.

And honestly, the ticket sales have not been quite up to snuff, I’ve got to be honest with you. If we don’t hit certain ticket numbers, we’re going to have to refund the people who have purchased tickets. (And by the way, if you’ve purchased tickets, thank you so much.) But we don’t want it to come to that. We want to visit your cities – Pittsburgh, Philadelphian, New York, and Boston. So, please, come through and go to jimharold.com/tour and get your tickets. Now, I realize some people, times are super tough, and some people just can’t afford it. And I can understand that. But if you can afford it and you’re looking for a night of fun, something different, tying to something that you listen to and can support – not a big business, a small business – please, jimharold.com/tour. Jimharold.com/tour, and thanks for your consideration.

And I hope that after today you will thank us for this interview. I think it’s going to be fascinating. It’s one thing to talk clinically about hauntings, but it’s a different thing to live it, and our guest today has lived it, and lived the process of living in a haunted house. I’m talking about Lindsey Brisbine. She is the host of The Chilling. It is a podcast about her personal experience in a house in Kent, Ohio – not that far from where I’m sitting right now. Lindsey has had a successful podcast, first season of her podcast talking about the haunting. She came on our Campfire show and shared some different stories, and I said, you know what? Let’s do a longer, little bit deeper dive into this. And then you can go off and listen to The Chilling Podcast to find out even more. Lindsey, welcome to the show today.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Thank you so much for having me. I love talking with you. And thanks everyone for listening.

JIM HAROLD: Yeah, I know that you just said that you had had some really good feedback on the podcast, and it seems to be growing and growing in popularity.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: It is. It’s really taking off. When I made it, funny enough, I thought, “Okay, maybe five people will listen.” [laughs] It’s really gone crazy. I’m super grateful for that. I just wanted to do a really good job, because a big part of the story – it’s not just my haunting; it’s the story of my roommates, other people I found. It’s a much bigger story, and I wanted to do a good job for everyone who survived living in this house. That was the goal, and I’ve gotten great feedback, so thanks, everyone, for checking it out.

JIM HAROLD: How did you “meet” this house in life? What was your first encounter with this highly haunted house?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Even the first encounter was really weird. Initially, we couldn’t find a three-bedroom house in this town because in a college town, almost all rentals are two units, four units, six units, things like that. So a three-bedroom, unheard of. Me and my two roommates really wanted to live together, so we were like, “Okay, we have to find a house,” and we couldn’t. We were basically about to give up, and a friend of ours said, “Why don’t you go to this realtor’s office,” of all things, “and see if they can help?”

This lady made an appointment, and just like in a horror movie, she’s like, “There are no three-bedroom homes. We cannot help you.” We were like, “Okay, we’re ready to go,” and she’s like, “But wait one second.” She reaches to a big filing cabinet, creaks it open, pulls out a manila envelope, and was like, “There is one,” and sets it down. We’re like, “Why didn’t you just start with that?”

JIM HAROLD: Yeah, that would be my question.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: We had a whole hour meeting with this woman, and that’s the end, when we’re going to leave. So she says, “Okay, there is this house.” Just like a horror movie. We’re like, “Okay.” We go to see this house, and this is where it initially – and again, looking back, I was young. I had only lived in dorms. I had never paid to rent a property. I never, in my mind, knew what is or isn’t normal about renting. So this is, now looking back, incredibly strange.

We meet the two landlords, and it’s me, my friend Rebecca, and my friend Amber, and they won’t let us go through the house alone. If we were all together in a space – and this isn’t a big house, mind you – but if I went to go upstairs, they would go, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, we’ll get there in a minute. Get back here. Stay together. We’re going to go together.” Looking back now – and that happened multiple times – there’s a reason they didn’t want us to at any point be alone in this house.

We went to go into the basement, and this becomes a big thing later on in the story. We open the door. It’s the creepiest basement ever. Basically unfinished, old stone walls, half-gravel, half-dirt. When we go down, they actually try to prevent us from going down there. They didn’t want us to see it. We went anyway, and then they brought us back up. Me and my roommates had noticed something on the wall, and then later examined it.

After we moved in, we examined this wall, and I know why they didn’t want us to go down there. On the wall was this graffiti, but this graffiti wasn’t like a heavy metal band group was like [raspy heavy metal voice] “Let’s put up a pentagram!” This looked like something from the Blair Witch. It was the weirdest symbols. Kind of like a pentagram, but not exactly, with these weird things around it. When you looked at it, it made you very uncomfortable. We were all like, “What the heck? No wonder they didn’t want us down here. This is really weird.”

So that’s our first impression of the house. Red flags everywhere, to your listeners. But remember, keeping in mind, we’re young. We’re never rented a home, so we don’t know that some of this is red flags.

We move in, and – when you watch a ghost movie, it’s usually a gradual progression to the haunting; it started for me immediately. I moved in and I was like, “Something’s not right.” I lived in the room at the top of the stairs. My roommate Rebecca lived in the room at the bottom of the stairs, and Amber had to live in a room with that actual basement door in it. So she had the basement door in her room.


LINDSEY BRISBINE: Yes. Not fun. [laughs]


LINDSEY BRISBINE: But Amber’s a brave soul, and Amber, funny enough, never believes in anything paranormal. She doesn’t believe in anything. So she couldn’t care less. She’s like, “It’s a basement. I don’t care.”

The first stuff that started for me was just that sensation of being watched. People talk about this all the time, and I’ve experience plenty of paranormal things in my life, but not like this. This is the first time – and this is why it’s called The Chilling. In movies and things, they portray that ghosts put off a cold air atmosphere. And again, I’ve had a lot of paranormal experiences; I’ve never experienced that. But in this house – and this would be a really great example; it’s not in the podcast, but to get more specific, I would feel something watching me as I moved around the house. If I knew where it was, I could actually put my hand in it and feel it and be like, “What is that?”

On one particular occasion, I was in bed and I felt somebody standing next to my bed, and I thought, “Is there somebody standing next to me?” I’m trying to go to sleep, but I’m like, I don’t know. And all of a sudden, as if somebody took both of their knees, they knelt against the mattress right next to my body, and I felt my mattress move with their weight. I went, “Do it.” Sometimes I have guts. I don’t know where it comes from. I took my hand and I stuck my hand into where I thought it was. I could feel the cold, and I felt my hand traveling through it until I came out of the cold, and it went out behind. I could feel the atmosphere change back.


LINDSEY BRISBINE: So I could feel, in my arm, its mass, its body if you will, and my hand was out the back of it. I remember pulling my hand back, rolling over in my covers, and I went, “Oh my God. There is something here.”

Along with that, I started having this nightmare. Now, I go into great detail with it in the podcast, but this is crazy. Jim, it starts Night 1, Day 1. One nightmare. It was this horrific dream of a woman in a white gown with black hair. When I would get terrified in this dream and I would wake up, when I went back to sleep, the dream restarted.


LINDSEY BRISBINE: For one year, just under a year, I had only one dream. Over and over.

JIM HAROLD: How horrible.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: I’ve had a couple reoccurring dreams here or there – not before living in this house, Jim, and not since moving out has this ever happened to me. One dream, on a loop, the worst nightmare of my life, over and over and over.

JIM HAROLD: How traumatic is that? Now let me ask you, without giving away any major spoilers, what can you tell us about the house itself?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: I ended up working with a historian. A big part of this podcast – I spoke to a lot of people varying from psychologists to neurologists to demonologists.

JIM HAROLD: Loyd Auerbach, one of our favorites.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Yep, he is on there. I wanted to understand, what is a haunting? Why me? Was I crazy? What was happening here? I wanted to get to the bottom of a lot of this because I do have friends and family that are huge skeptics, but I knew this story was a huge story.

As far as the house itself, I worked with a historian; everybody assumed – rumor had it, of course, as urban legends work, that this is the oldest home in Kent, Ohio. Well, turns out it’s not that old at all. It was built probably in the early 1900s, and everyone’s pegging it in 1800-something or really old. It really wasn’t as old as we thought, after working with a historian.

The house itself was strange because it’s in the middle of a suburban community. It doesn’t look like a haunted house at all. I’ve had people send me photos of the house that they think is the house, and there’s actually urban legends about another house now that everyone thinks is the house, and none of it is. It is so normal-looking, you’d never pick it up. It was a little white house, three bedrooms. It just was a cute little house for college kids. Nothing stood out about this property from the outside, at all.

JIM HAROLD: That real estate agent – do you think that she knew of this when she handed it to you? Said, “You know what, they want a place bad enough, I’ll give them what they want”? Do you think that was what was going on there?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Kind of, yeah. I learned later from another resident who lived in the home that these two landlords did know the house was haunted, but their attitude was kind of “So what? What do you want us to do?” Their attitude was “People are saying this, but what do you want from us? That has nothing to do with us.”

What I think is – because I remember this realtor saying that these guys were very particular. “They’re very particular.” So I don’t know that she knew it was haunted; I just think she knew that these guys were kind of weird when it came to renting, and I think she was holding back because she knew how odd they were. I don’t think she knew – maybe there is a greater conspiracy, because I did find out that most people in this town know this house is haunted. It’s not a thing that no one knows. People know, and there are so many rumors about what people think happened and all this and that.

But I do know from what I’ve been told, the landlords knew for sure. Hey, maybe she knew or maybe they were just particular people and she was holding out until she was like, “Well, I guess these girls aren’t giving up. I guess I’ll let them have it.”

JIM HAROLD: One thing that we hear about in a severely haunted house is the idea of poltergeist, of things moving. Every question, just assume it’s me saying “without any spoilers,” but was there a poltergeist element to this?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Absolutely. Objects moving. Doors opening and closing on their own. People being tugged, moved, pulled downstairs. Things disappearing. More stuff than I can say. And it’s to a point that when I look back sometimes – here’s a great example, without giving away, because this isn’t in the podcast. There becomes a huge issue between me, who lives at the top of the stairs, and my roommate who lives at the bottom of the stairs, Rebecca. The stairwell to my room always made me feel so uncomfortable, from Day 1. It made me feel sick. I remember the first day walking up the stairs with these landlords and feeling “Something’s wrong here.”

I was an art major and I had artwork everywhere, and I decided, “I’m going to line the stairwell with art just so it feels better.” It was such a weird stairwell, too. Very narrow. It wasn’t open. It was a closed-off stairwell. Small, tight. So I would put up these canvases, and whatever was in the house was smart enough to know how much this bothered my roommate at the bottom of the stairs – I would put up these canvases and they would fall and tumble down the stairs and block her bedroom door. Neatly stacked. Not sideways. Like three of them stacked against her door.

She would say, “Stop putting your stuff up or secure it.” We would get in arguments over this. My then-boyfriend, now husband, said, “I’m sick of this. You don’t know what you’re doing. I’m going to hang it up.” And I’ll never forget what it looked like because it looked ridiculous. He took these canvases, lined them with hundreds of tacks – hundreds of tacks around the whole edge so that there was no anything. Then he taped over the tacks, and he’s like, “Nothing will bring this down.”

And I come home and Rebecca is furious because there are the canvases against her door, neatly stacked, and hundreds of tacks now covering the floor and stairs. It was impossible.

JIM HAROLD: Wow. Did you feel that whatever this was was trying to pit the three of you against each other?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Absolutely. A little background here. Rebecca and Amber were two of the most calm, nice, and passive people in the world. Rebecca especially. Rebecca was a very quiet, nice person. We moved into this house, Rebecca goes into her room, locks the door, and never comes out. And I don’t mean once in a while. I mean we are literally doing wellness checks. We had concerns that she had killed herself and we were going to have to call her parents. She never came out. Not to eat, not to use the bathroom. Nothing. We used to hang out all the time, and we were like, “I don’t understand.” Her personality became very – I don’t know, paranoid and aggressive.

So we have her getting angry at me for all of these weird things happening, like things falling down the stairs that are impossible, and her personality is becoming so reserved and strange. She started hearing what she thought was me outside her door, laughing, cackling, tapping, making all these weird sounds. We didn’t speak for 10 years after we moved out of this house, by the way.


LINDSEY BRISBINE: She didn’t speak to me really until this podcast, so I never knew what happened to her. So when you hear the podcast, you hear what happened to her and what she thinks looking back. I asked her, “How could you think it was me?” She goes, “Because it was your voice.” What she reflects back on – she can remember seeing two sets of feet outside our door. She was hearing me and seeing feet and all this stuff, and she would open her door and no one would be there.

JIM HAROLD: Doppelganger.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: And not only would nobody be there, I wouldn’t even be home. She looks back and goes, despite physically knowing “no one’s here, it can’t be her,” she was still mad at me. She goes, “That’s how you know there was something in the house, because mentally I was, in my mind, still convinced that it was you, even though you weren’t there.”

JIM HAROLD: Could you detect – if you watch that old movie The Amityville Horror, you see where the James Brolin character, George Lutz, becomes darker and more sinister himself by being there. Did you feel that it was changing your personality and changing you in any way?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: For me, I never realized this was happening. This was one of the scariest moments for me when I decided to do this story and deep dive and dig – and I wanted to talk to specialists and see. It wasn’t until I spoke to demonologist Michael Salerno that he said, “You do realize that you were almost possessed, right?” When he said it, I got the goosebumps and thought, “Wait, what?”

Then I looked back, and what I can say is whatever was in the house was trying to possess me. My personality didn’t change; I didn’t get more aggressive or anything, but I became more isolated. I thought I was crazy. I wasn’t sleeping. Because of this dream, I would stay up as late as I could because I didn’t want to go to sleep. If I stayed at other people’s homes – because people are like, “Why didn’t you leave?” I would go stay at my boyfriend’s or my sister’s and I was still having the dream. So I thought, “Whatever it is is going to come with me, and I don’t want to take it to someone else’s house, so I’m just not going to sleep.”

So I became worn out, exhausted, rundown. My roommate Amber, on the other hand, the one who never believed in anything, could walk in the back door – and this was crazy because this isn’t her personality – she would be so angry. If you’ve ever had a parent that’s mad at you and they’re slamming doors, she would stomp up the back stairs, slam the sliding door closed. She would look at you with this angry look. She’d go into her bedroom and slam her door, and you’d hear her banging around, and you’d be like, “Oh God, it’s happening.” Then five minutes later she’d come out and she’d be like, “Hey guys, what’s going on?”

JIM HAROLD: [laughs] Whew.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: We would be looking at her like, “Do you know what you just did?” She’d go, “What are you talking about?” Sometimes she wouldn’t remember coming in the house. She had no memory of walking in the house.

JIM HAROLD: It’s quite a story. We’re talking about the subject of The Chilling Podcast, of a haunting of a home in Kent, Ohio. We’re going to be back with the host of that show, Lindsey Brisbine, right after this on the Paranormal Podcast.

The Paranormal Podcast is brought to you by Grammarly and their new product, GrammarlyGO. I think it is so cool because it’s their new communication assistant powered by generative AI. GrammarlyGO understands your unique context, preferred voice, and goals to generate high-quality writing. I’m excited about AI because I don’t see AI as a substitute for me; I see it as a force multiplier, something that can help me do my job better. I don’t know how many times I have been in a situation maybe where I’m stuck for ideas, or I need some kind of thought generators or thought starters, and I could’ve used somebody by my side to help me do that. And now GrammarlyGO is that.

Let me give you an example. Let’s say you’re struggling for new ideas. Let’s say you just bought a taco truck. You say, “I want to decorate it.” Well, you could say: “Outline ideas for how to decorate a taco truck,” and it will give you a list of ideas. Also, let’s say that you started a yoga studio and you wanted help with a business plan. You could say: “Create a yoga studio business plan,” and it would generate one. Of course, you’re going to want to tweak and review and so forth, but it’s a great way to rewrite things you’ve done, write things you’ve done. I think it is a great, great thing.

It also helps you write better. You could type a prompt into GrammarlyGO to generate high-quality writing so you can spend less time on wordsmithing. For example, you could say: “Compose a paragraph that summarizes TikTok,” and it would give you something that would be very usable. Of course, I always recommend going in and tweaking it and so forth, but boy, it can give you one heck of a head start.

You’ll be amazed at what you can do with GrammarlyGO. Go to grammarly.com/go to download and learn more about GrammarlyGO. That’s g-r-a-m-m-a-r-l-y dot com slash go. That’s grammarly.com/go, and we thank Grammarly for their support of the Paranormal Podcast.

JIM HAROLD: We’re back on the Paranormal Podcast. Our guest is Lindsey Brisbine. She is the host of The Chilling Podcast, which is doing very, very well on the various podcast outlets, that tells the true story of a haunted home that she lived in in Kent, Ohio – in kind of my neck of the woods, Northeastern Ohio.

Lindsey, you were telling me offline that there are some stories – any time you do a project like this, there’s some stuff that you can’t get in because you have a lack of time. There are a couple of great stories you said you had for us that didn’t quite make the podcast. If you’d like to share those with us, that would be fantastic.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Absolutely. You mentioned The Amityville Horror before, and it made me think of it in particular. At the time we were living in this house, the hauntings started to ramp up. When I say ramp up, I don’t want to go into great detail, but we’re talking – because it happened so much, it would go on forever, but doors opening and closing. You could be on the couch, sitting there, eating, and you would watch a kitchen cabinet very slowly click and just slide open. Things would be happening like that with such frequency, there’s no reason to put it all in because it never stopped happening. Bathroom doors, door handles jiggling, sounds in the house that you’d hear them and think, “This doesn’t make any sense.”

Early on – this is at the early stages of the internet, so it wasn’t back then what it is now. I was trying to find people to help us – ghost groups, priests, anyone – and nobody would get back to me. Sometimes I wonder, was it that they didn’t get back to me, or was it that whatever was in the house wouldn’t let them? I kind of have this sense that whatever was in the house wouldn’t, because I reached out to so many people. A few got back to me and said no, but most just went unanswered. I thought, “This doesn’t make sense.” I’d send multiple emails, I’d call numbers, and nobody would get back to me.

I decided, “We don’t know what to do; maybe we should try to watch a movie and see if we can get some information on what you do in a haunting this bad.” I had never seen the original, despite my love of horror movies, Amityville Horror movie. So we rent it. It’s Amber, myself, and my then-boyfriend, now-husband, Adam. We put it in, and this is when we learned a huge lesson about this house. This is when it really came to “Okay, we learned a lesson here.”

We put it on and we’re maybe 20 minutes into the movie, and the only way I can describe living in a haunting like this – which we do come to learn is, we think, a demon – you start to feel the atmosphere of the home change. I often equate it to if you’ve ever been into a festive Halloween-style haunted house, and the fog machines are going and it’s got that weird atmosphere, just from the fog machines. Now imagine that sensation except you can’t see any fog. So you would just be sitting there and go, “Something’s happening. I can feel it beginning.”

We’re watching the movie and my roommate Amber says, “I don’t think we should be watching this right now. I’m getting a weird feeling.” And I was feeling it too, but I was like, “We have to figure out what to do, and I don’t know what else to do at this point.” My boyfriend, Adam, goes, “I don’t think we should be watching this right now.” I’m like, “Guys, come on. Let’s just try a little further.” And all of a sudden I look over to the back porch where the sliding glass door is, and there is a green glowing light shining in the back glass door. It looks like if you’ve ever seen either the cover of the book or the movie Great Gatsby, that green light. There’s this green, glowing, emerald-looking light shining in the glass porch.

I go, “Do you guys see that?” Amber and Adam both go, “Yeah.” So now the movie’s playing and getting louder, and the light is glowing, and we begin to see – this is so beyond my comprehension – this mist start to manifest and roll up the back wooden stairs, super slow. We’re watching it roll, and it’s so thick. It hits the glass of the back door and actually hits it hard and begins to roll up the door. It’s being illuminated, this mist, by the literal green light. This mist begins to come together into a mass.

Amber jumps up, hits the TV, turns off Amityville, and says, “Run.” And we ran out of the front door and went and stayed at my boyfriend’s horribly dirty little apartment. We all crashed on his couch, and I think one of us slept on the floor. I think Adam slept on the floor and me and Amber slept on the couch. The next day we went back because we were like, “How can we explain this?” We went back and looked to see if maybe on somebody’s porch they had those green lights you put up at Christmas, just on your porch. We found nothing.

That day we learned a lesson, which was: whatever’s in this house, if you’re watching horror movies, if you’re talking about it, things like that would happen. It would get amplified.

JIM HAROLD: That’s weird.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: It was just such a crazy phenomenon to witness and go through.

JIM HAROLD: You said you thought it was a demon. Again, without giving too much away, did you ever feel that you got to the bottom of how or why this place became essentially possessed with a demon?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: My end theory would be, after talking with everyone, former tenants, doing my research, I have a feeling that it’s this: I spoke with a psychic, Joe Perreta, and Joe picked up something during our conversation. He hit a few things that he did not know, and I started thinking, “Okay, I think he’s for real,” and he started describing this entity’s long black crazy hair, which was a huge part of my nightmare and this being. So I knew he was hitting something. He said he thought it was part of the land and somehow it had been basically summoned to the house.

I then found out that in the ’80s, it had been a fraternity house, and they were doing horrific hazing in the basement. At some point, somebody did that Blair Witch-looking graffiti on the wall, and I have a feeling that somebody accidentally – or intentionally – summoned something to this house via that graffiti, and now it’s just there.

JIM HAROLD: So this is something that probably was actually more recent. We’re not talking about something that’s been haunted for a hundred years. It’s something that’s been 30, 40 years, something in that kind of era.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Yeah, and that seems right to all the research I’ve done. Joe Perreta’s theory is that it’s part of the actual land. This was First Nations land originally. There’s a lot there, a lot of history. And I think that whatever this demon is, when somebody did that graffiti or summoned it, whatever that did, whether it was during the fraternity or someone else, somebody did something and brought it to and attached it to this home.

JIM HAROLD: When you left – and I’m sure you cover all that in the podcast – were you concerned about something attaching itself to you and following you?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Absolutely. That was my biggest fear of all. I can honestly say that I barely survived this house. I literally almost died in this house, whether it would’ve been from a lack of sleep – I go into it a lot, what it did to me with my mental health. Maybe almost being possessed. I don’t know, I literally got out of there barely alive. By the end, any of us who stayed, it was the same vibe for all of us. We barely got out. And it changed everyone. Everyone I’ve talked to who lived in that house, they are changed forever. Whether their psychic abilities went up, whether – like Amber left that house and had permanent severe depression, which she never had before. And that wasn’t her personality at all. So we were all really scarred by this house. I barely got out by the skin of my teeth.

I really thought it would leave with me, and that was my biggest fear. And it didn’t. It did come back and give me a little threat, which I talk about in the show, when I was making this podcast. It definitely came back to say “I don’t like you talking about this,” for sure. That’s been the only thing, but it didn’t, thankfully, follow me.

JIM HAROLD: Do you think the house continues to wreak havoc today?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: I do know for a fact it is still haunted, yes.

JIM HAROLD: Interesting. There’s so much to learn, and there’s one way to learn it. That’s to listen to The Chilling Podcast. Lindsey, there’s a ton more that I could ask you, but I think now is the time that people need to check that out. Tell us a little bit about the podcast and where people can find it.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Absolutely. The Chilling is a 13-part serialized podcast detailing all the events by the most haunted house in Kent, Ohio – and I would venture to say maybe the most haunted house in America. You can find it at www.thechillingpodcast.com, or anywhere that you listen to podcasts. And you can always give me a follow on Instagram @thechillingpodcast.

JIM HAROLD: Someone told me that Season 2 is in the works, no?

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Yes. Season 2 is in the works. This next season’s going to be more interview-based, because when you’re the person who’s lived in the scariest house that anyone’s ever heard of, everyone comes to you with their story. So I wanted to take a little sidebar here, and we’re going to hear from family members of mine, some listeners, some people I don’t know, interviews with people like you, Jim, and just hearing from different people their life stories. I’m very interested in the paranormal, and I like to have people’s stories get out there. And then eventually I’ll be venturing back into some more longer format stories as well.

JIM HAROLD: Well, Lindsey, thank you so much for joining us. Congratulations on the success of the show, and continued success on the show. The Chilling Podcast. Check it out. Thanks again, Lindsey.

LINDSEY BRISBINE: Thank you, Jim. Have a great day.

JIM HAROLD: Thanks so much for joining us today for the Paranormal Podcast. We thank Lindsey. What an interesting, interesting story.

I hope, as we said at the beginning, you’ll support us by supporting our tour. If you’re in the Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Boston, or New York areas, again, we need your help if we’re going to pull this thing off. And if we’re going to come to other cities, we’ve got to make this one a success because if this one’s not a success, I probably won’t try another tour. Honestly, I had the thing in Nashville the year of COVID, 2020, and that got cancelled, and now, honestly, ticket sales have fallen short. We’re a small business, and we have to watch our pennies. So anything that we do, we have to make at least a modest profit on it, or we unfortunately can’t do it.

So I hope we can do this. I hope we can pull it back from the brink here in the next week or so and get those ticket sales up. So if you’re in those markets and can afford it and would like a fun night out of an interactive Campfire experience, I hope you’ll join us. You can find those tickets at jimharold.com/tour. Jimharold.com/tour, and we appreciate your consideration – and for you tuning in.

We’ll be back next week with another great show. Have a fun one next week. We’re going to talk about the Nixon-Gleason UFO connection. Very interesting stuff. We’ll be back next week. Take care, stay safe, and stay spooky! Bye-bye.
