On this scary Halloween podcast episode, Stephanie Long tells one of our best real ghost stories yet about strange and bizarre paranormal encounters that happen in basements. Take a listen to the episode. And then, let us know what YOU think she saw on the ceiling of her basement bedroom.

Episode Summary

On this podcast, we interview many people who have seen ghosts and other scary paranormal critters. And there have been a significant portion of those people who have seen—something—with glowing red eyes.

Our guest, Stephanie, was in a dark place when saw dozens of entities surrounding her bed, all with the same glowing red eyes. These creatures were so numerous they blocked out the sunlight that would have been streaming into her room. Did the eyes indicate something evil? Or could they have meant something else?

Suicide is absolutely never the answer.

We’ve both been in an impossibly hard place before and we both have ongoing issues with depression. The best thing we’ve done that helped, ever, is to connect with other people. No matter what the problem is, there is someone out there who’s been there, who can relate with and understand anything you’re going through, who wants to hear what’s going on with you, and who yeah, actually freaking cares, however unlikely that might feel, because they’ve been there.

This is literally why the volunteers who man the Suicide Prevention Hotline do it; because they are thankful that they were able to talk to someone, or wish their loved one had been able to. It’s totally confidential and you do not have to use your real name.

They’re so inclusive that they have, I shit you not, TWELVE different gender identities to choose from on their live chat survey. If you’re a talking-out-loud kind of person, call them at 1-800-273-8255. Professional help and this hotline exist because MANY people around the world feel suicidal every day; 20,000 people visit the Suicide Prevention Hotline chat every month. It can’t do any harm to talk about it to someone who wants to listen.

Horror movies and haunted attractions: love ’em or hate ’em?

Even Stephanie’s best friends who love ghost stories are too scared to watch movies about ghosts or listen to scary podcasts or go to haunted Halloween attractions with her. Conversely, we love being so scared we pee ourselves, at least in controlled situations. Where do you stand on the spectrum, from scaredy cat to scream queen? Let us know in our private Facebook group that you absolutely should be a part of if you aren’t already.
