    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 22: Hawaii’s Unsolved Mysteries
    "Unsolved mysteries always strike a middle ground between the creepy and curious, and the stories here are no exception. I haven’t heard of the Sarah Joe case, but it’s left me fascinated about what did happen. Also the final story is pretty disturbing. I wonder if there will ever be any progress on that case cause it is just down right unsettling the more you think on it. "

    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 24: The Hauntings at the Old Hilo Memorial Hospital
    "This is easily one of my favorite episodes of Ghostlore. Haunted Hospital stories already have a special flair of terror them, and Jared adds his unique blend of comedy and creepy to the mix. I also wanted to highlight the storytelling here because I loved it. With headphones on, it was a creepy, informative, and immersive experience."

    "I always love me some old war stories. "

    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 25: Hawaii’s UFO/UAP Sightings
    "I’m not usually a fan of UFO episodes but I do enjoy Uncle Jared’s storytelling. The guidance missile story does sound suspect. I think it’s an experimental weapon that the US probably couldn’t talk about or hint at without some form of acceptable risk. I appreciate how many odd things happen in Hawaii though, and this adds to the pile of reasons why the islands are paranormally fascinating. "

    Jocko Podcast
    Jocko Podcast341: Simple Rules To Become A Better Person and Leader.
    "Solid advice as always. Just literally take a step back as Jocko suggests will change your perception on a given situation. But at nearly 2 hour long, of course there is more to it than that. "

    Dark History
    Dark History48: Blood, Butter, and BEHEADINGS?!?!?: Popcorn's Dark Past
    "For such an odd topic, it was a good episode to listen to. Corn itself has such a crazy history with the US, but hearing about the dark side of popcorn was enlightening. I also appreciate how Bailey contextualizes the holidays talked about here so we have some understanding of the attitudes towards these practices."

    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 23: My Haunted Apartment
    "The futon story in this episode is FREAKY. That’s gonna stick with me. Also the diagram of the room’s layout on Instagram helped visualize all of the creepy happenings. Out of curiosity, Uncle Jared, have you considered recording yourself when you sleep? It might catch the teabagging ghost lol But overall, this was such a fun and creepy episode! I loved it!"
