Belief Hole | Paranormal, Mysteries and Other Tasty Thought Snacks

Oct 31, 2021

For thousands of years, cultures around the world have cultivated an unusual, shared belief, that in the Autumn season, the Vale between this world and the next thins.. and the dead return to roam. 

The Hungry Ghost Festival in Hong Kong and India’s Pitney Paksha are just a couple of examples, but the most well-known, of course, is Samhain, the ancient Celtic holiday that gave birth to Halloween. One can’t help but wonder if these traditions, in fact, honor a real supernatural occurrence. A mass visitation of nocturnal visitors...

What do these spirits seek, and what sorts of otherworldly creatures follow them through this transient gateway?

On this episode of Belief Hole, we explore chilling accounts of a shadowy cast of characters, from the ancient Tuatha De Danann, to the fear-eating Dogmen of Matanuska Valley, and all sorts of eerie entities in between. Join us, as we light a candle, set out the candy, and conjure up, true tales of Halloween Horror!

Also.. Jon dreams of other realities, Jeremy chooses tricks over treats, and Chris threatens to use the Ouija!
