In this episode of strange and funny ghost stories, we talk to Rory and Kit of This Paranormal Life. The two podcast hosts tell us some of the strangest ghost stories they’ve shared on their show. Then, they give us insight about how they pull off their strange brand of paranormal comedy. We think it all started in Irish History class, where they learned to take the local cryptids seriously.

We ask the hosts some of their favorite stories, and they relay us with tales of the White Lady of Union Cemetery in Easton Connecticut, the Kuchisake-onna (or slit-mouthed woman) of Japan, and the Jikininki, also from Japan.

When Rory asked us about one of our favorite ghost stories, we told them the story of the hellhound at Rotherwood Mansion.

Love discussions of Irish cryptids and folklore?

In this interview, we discuss how the E.U. recently made leprechauns a protected species, and the other Irish cryptids Rory and Kit learned about in grade school. We ourselves have heard stories about banshees, skunkapes, and bigfoot here in the States. But we also love exploring cryptids in Scottish lakes and the chupacabra in Mexico and parts of the U.S. And we can’t wait to hear more strange Irish ghost stories and cryptid stories, which can’t help but lead to a spooky day!
