Best Paranormal Podcasts

Best Paranormal Podcasts

I have a confession.

I’m slightly addicted to listening to paranormal podcasts. Anything about the strange and the weird and I’m game on to learn more.

The bonus is that these podcasts generally add to my list of places I absolutely must visit. Honestly, if I don’t see it or experience how can I know if its real or not, right?

I thought it was about time I come clean and share what I consider the best paranormal podcasts that I have stumbled across. If you are even slightly interested in the strange or bizarre these are for you.

If you are even slightly interested in the strange or bizarre these are for you.

While I listen to all of them I’ll go on record and say that the Paranormal Podcast with Jim Harold and Sasquatch Chronicles with Wes Germer are my favorites.

Best Paranormal Podcasts For News On The Weird & Strange

The Paranormal Podcast with Jim Harold

I have been following Jim Harold for years and am always impressed with paranormal podcast. His podcast, in my opinion, is one of the best paranormal podcasts in production.

Jim covers everything from hauntings to Bigfoot to strange noises and everything in between. I have listened to podcasts with mediums and book authors and ghost tour operators.

A recent favorite of his is Are Aliens Really Human Time Travelers from the Future. Completely fascincating with science to back it up. Mind. Blown.

I never know what will be next on Jim Harold, but I do know that it will be interesting. For what it’s worth, I love Jim’s interview style and I’ve picked up a few tips to use in my own work.

Jim does offer a paid subscription to Jim Harold’s Paranormal Plus Club if you are interested. The plus club offers 1,000s of more paranormal episodes, videos, webinars, and tutorials.

For more great ghost stories. Jim also hosts the ever impressive Jim Harold Campfire. Hear tales that you’d tell around the campfire.

The Confessionals with Tony Merkel

This is a newer podcast by Tony has great guests and is willing to listen to any story on the weird and bizarre.

That is one of the things that I love about his show, I never know what will show up. Bigfoot, time slips, hauntings, monsters, ufo’s, it’s all up for discussion on The Confessionals.

Tony also offers a paid membership for those that want more confessionals time.

Mysterious Universe

Ok, I’m not going to lie, the accents of the hosts of the Mysterious Universe is what had me tuning into this paranormal podcast, but after the first episode it became clear that this is a “must” listen to podcast.

Always interesting and always entertaining. They cover an array of topics including science, space, cryptozoology, conspiracy theories, ancient mysteries and more. (weekly)

Expanded Perspectives

I recently found this paranormal podcast and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

I love the commentary and interaction between the co-hosts. Cam & Kyle are just two good ‘ole Texas boys and the show is entertaining, informative and, at times, have a great conspiracy theory podcast.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

Sasquatch Chronicle

I’m fascinated by the idea of the existence of Bigfoot. If you check out my Pinterest profile (give me a follow while you’re there) you’ll know I’m still on the hunt for Bigfoot. 

Alan was tired of listening to the above paranormal (to which he frequently rolls his eyes, lol) and asked me to find anything Bigfoot related.

After I did a bit of a search I found Sasquatch Chronicles.

Great podcast about this elusive creature. Regardless if you believe or not it’s worth a listen.

Sasquatch Chronicles offers a paid membership option PLUS they also have a store where you can buy pretty cool merch.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention David Paulides Missing 4-1-1. The stories put together by David can be a bit perplexing and it really makes you stop and say hmmm.

I’d like to thank David for making sure I never, ever, ever take a hike alone again. 😉 It’s the buddy system for life for me. I’ve linked you to his website, but you can do a search on YouTube for David Paulides talks and interviews. It’s very interesting.

In the paranormal world, it’s my understanding that Coast to Coast AM with George Noory is one of THE best paranormal shows to listen to for news on the paranormal.

While it’s a radio show and not a podcast I figured it is worth mentioning. You can listen for free if you are a night owl and it’s broadcast on one of your local stations. Otherwise, you can pay a monthly fee to listen.

For those that might prefer TV over a paranormal podcast I would recommend these:

Monsters and Mysteries in America: The first season is on Hulu. It covered all the strange and bizarre that this country has to offer.  It’s all reenacted so it’s easy to listen to in the background without having to watch the tv

Hangar 1: From the History Channel it covers everything UFO related. There is two seasons available.

Paranormal Witness on SyFy: This one is so well reenacted that I often find myself freaked out watching it. As most of these reality type shows, it’s hard to say if the stories are true or made up, but regardless it’s still a fun show to watch.

Are there other contenders out there for the best paranormal podcast or show?
