Hey there! I’m Jacob Granado- your host, producer, editor, researcher, one-man show. Ever since I was an over-imaginative young one, I knew I wanted to do SOMETHING in the entertainment industry. I’ve studied acting, writing, public speaking (A.A. in Communication), education (Minor in Education), music production, etc. And I’ve always been wildly fascinated by the supernatural, the unexplained, true crime, pop culture, conspiracy theories, and storytelling in general.

But it wasn’t until after I graduated and took a hard look at all of my “skills” and interests that I was able to see the potential for this show. I never thought I’d have my own podcast, but with the little bit of fire I have in my birth chart (Aries Moon), I made it happen, and am still TRYING to make it happen.

So here I am, pouring my heart and energy into each episode- a passion project turned part-time job, turned (manifesting here) source of steady income.

Thank you so much for joining me on this ride! It means so much to me that there are people like you who tune in each episode, allowing me to share my wild ramblings and thoughts with. And I hope that my passions, my writing, my episodes bring some joy (however small) into your weeks. And as always, I’m completely open and receptive to feedback, suggestions, and just chatting about pop culture or the paranormal in general!
