    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 14: The Hole
    "I love the way Uncle Jared used his voice here. I don’t want to spoil too much, but I love how it’s perfect for an aside joke and then a few minutes later, flips into a gruesome narration. This episode’s story is horrifying. I’m pretty sure my mental image of that “saw” scene is going to flash before my eyes whenever I have to stick my hand any where I can’t see it. "

    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 15: Mysterious Creatures Found in Hawaii
    "I didn’t know so many different invasive species have caused so much damage to Hawaii’s ecosystem. I appreciate the information in this episode though and I think the idea of being stalked by a large cat that has no business being in the ecosystem you live in is pretty terrifying. Also those frogs sound obnoxious. I wonder why nothing in Hawaii will eat them?"
