All places haunted, abandoned, mysterious, and off the beaten path
– This is Ghost Town.
Ghost Town, hosted and produced by Jason Horton and Rebecca Leib, is a comedy podcast about mysterious, abandoned and esoteric places all over the world. Each week Rebecca and Jason explore new unsolved mysteries, abandoned places, haunted houses, and the paranormal. If you love true crime, ghost stories, urban archeology, the unexplained, or just want to see the world around you a little differently – Ghost Town has something for you.
Through comedic investigation of a location, Ghost Town explores history, story and a shared curiosity/commentary of forgotten spots, large and small (and often haunted)! Ghost Town has been #2 on the Apple Podcast comedy charts, top 15 on the Apple Podcast top charts, a featured podcast on Apple Podcast’s Scary Stories, a favorite on Castbox’s Editor’s Picks and has been reviewed by Brit & Co, Geek Girl Authority and the AV Club. The AV Club said that paranormal enthusiasts looking for podcast additions should “look no further than Ghost Town.”
