This week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with close friend of the show and real life camp counselor, David Chastain. He describes his first encounter with the paranormal, the difficulty and excitement of what seems to be a lifelong attachment with a shadow person, and get nostalgic about the years he spent scaring children around a campfire as a real life honest to goodness camp counselor. So, strap in and enjoy these tried and true summer time scares! 

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. 

This week’s episode includes the following sensitive content:
