Haunting – iHeartPodcasts and Glass Podcasts

Haunting, Purgatory’s premier podcast, shares weekly, real-life paranormal stories told by those who experienced them first-hand. Some will be unsettling... Some unnerving… And some are even downright terrifying! Haunting brings audiences into the story through first-hand accounts and immersive audio, giving listeners the feeling of coming face-to-face with the unexplainable.  Hosted by Theresa (Teh-rez-ah), an "influencer" who tragically died before she could get the proverbial "little blue check in life," is stuck in the Eternal Twilight until she figures out how to finish her "unfinished business." Just like when she was alive and active on every social media platform, Theresa promises to always give her audience the -- mostly -- unfiltered look into her life, now afterlife. But instead of snarky social commentary, OOTDs, and hyper-edited selfies, with the help of her producer, Len, and succubus from Hell turned intern, Naomi, Theresa aims to help the living see that ghosts are just former people who want to have a little fun like anyone else, even though it's often in the form of mortal fear and suffering.

Ear Hustle – Ear Hustle & Radiotopia

Ear Hustle is prison slang for eavesdropping, and that’s what listening to the show feels like: a raw, often funny, and always surprising peek into the reality of life inside prison. Hosts Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods co-created the show that launched in 2017 while Earlonne was incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, where Nigel was a volunteer teaching photography. Since Earlonne’s release in 2018, the show has expanded to include stories from prisons across the state, including the California Institution for Women, as well as stories about getting out of prison and starting over, post-incarceration. From finding romance, to grappling with a life sentence, to trying to parent via 15-minute phone calls, Ear Hustle stories deliver what This American Life host Ira Glass calls a “"very real” and “untragic” take on prison life. Ear Hustle is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX, a network of independent listener-supported podcasts. Discover audio with vision at radiotopia.fm and learn more about Ear Hustle at earhustlesq.com. Read More
