    ‘Bout time you posted something!

  • Renae Rude - The Paranormalist

    I absolutely love the photo you took for this. Completely drew me in.

  • Melissa

    Yay! You’re back. I don’t always get a chance to leave comments, but I am a faithful listener who enjoys your podcast and have been patiently waiting for your return. Glad to hear all is well.
    I heard about Charlie Charlie a few weeks ago when a 7 year old student in the 2nd grade classroom I work in asked me if I knew who Charlie Charlie was. I have been hearing about Charlie Charlie non-stop since being asked about it.
    I don’t plan on taking the challenge. But it reminded me of when I was a kid and Bloody Mary was all the rage with kids trying to scare themselves in dark bathrooms looking in the mirror.
    The podcast sounds good – keep up the great work!

    • Patrick Keller

      Thank you so much, Melissa! Sorry to take so long to respond. Unfortunately (and maybe fortunately), I was not the paranormal nerd I am today when I was growing up. So I don’t remember being aware of things like Bloody Mary or Charlie Charlie, other than maybe seeing something about it in a movie or something.

      And your’e not the first person I’ve heard from who said they’ve heard lots of Charlie Charlie chatter from young elementary students! Crazy!
