Strange Familiars - Episode 28: A Haunted Church

James and Timothy spend the night in a haunted church located in the river town of Columbia, Pennsylvania. Recorders are deployed throughout the church and parsonage with two short but interesting audio clips captured. In the middle of the night, Timothy notices a black object on the floor which has disappeared by morning. Chris Vera tells some of the ghostly encounters he and others have had in the church.

Strange Familiars: Episode 26: Encounters with the Flannel Man

Flannel Man

We mentioned Flannel Man on the podcast at some point and struck a nerve. People all over are seeing this entity and we’ve been contacted by several witnesses who have seen Flannel Man in their house. In this episode Timothy talks with Dovie, Vanessa, and Alison about their Flannel Man encounters.

Strange Familiars: Episode 27: Lights in the Woods

Strange FamiliarsTimothy briefly revisits Flannel Man (see episode 26) and reads a new encounter submitted by a listener. Timothy and James K., while sitting in a haunted church in Columbia PA (more on that in a future episode), discuss some very unusual lights seen at Site 7. Then we turn to on-site recordings to hear Timothy, James R., and Jeff visit Site 7 to see and interact with the weird lights. James R. sees a large shadowy figure in the trees. More unusual sounds are heard coming from the trees.

If you haven’t listened to our first two Site 7 episodes you may want to check those out first to get some background on all the strange phenomena associated with the area. See Strange Familiars episodes 19 & 20.
