This week, we’re sitting down to listen to a series of three incredible and terrifying listener stories. Our first tale comes from an ICU nurse who encounters a seemingly cursed room in her unit and the mysterious entity that appears to occupy it. Our second story comes to us from rural Wisconsin where a young couple, just trying to enjoy a rare fair-weather day, encounter a horrifying figure that would later claim internet fame. And finally, we have the tale of a young college student attending a women’s school in New England. After securing a room in the legendary dorms locally referred to as ‘the castle’, she quickly finds herself in what appears to be some sort of hellish energy trap. We are so grateful to those of you who send us your stories. KEEP SENDING THEM! We can’t wait to hear what keeps you locked into your Fortean obsessions. 


Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position. We will do our best to make this a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with difficult content every week.
