Friends With Ghost Stories

"What do our ghost stories tell us about ourselves and our world?” 

Purple Top Records presents 'Friends With Ghost Stories' podcast. Hosted by Georgie Winchester and produced in Newcastle NSW. The spooky series illustrates individual experiences with paranormal activity and spirituality which explore themes of afterlife, ghosts, science, religion, death, portals and a whole range of beliefs on the topic. Often a taboo or a joke subject although, once tongues get talking, let's just say we leave wondering more about the world we live in than ever before.

Each week the podcast features a different local musician to help promote and support their work within the industry. Stay tuned at the end of each podcast episode for the artist feature. Or follow this link here to discover the Friends With Ghost Stories Music Spotify playlist.

S1 E05 | THE MONASTERY

Episode Description

For over 35 years, John worked in a 100 year old sandstone monastery. It was built at the beginning of last century on a 1200 acre property in the middle of the Blue National Park. Back then it was in the middle of nowhere, hidden from civilisation. In that building, when he was often alone, he was visited by many spirits. They came to him either very early in the morning or in the evenings. The encounters were initially frightening but over time he came to respect them. John learnt that it’s the living you should fear and not the dead!!!

S1 E04 | A GIFT

Episode Description

Some people are gifted with the ability to tap into energies around us, and Paris is one of these people, an empath. Among many things in this episode, we discuss how Paris is able to tune into a higher self, who guides and informs which is both terrifying and grounding. We are left wondering more about the world we live in than ever before.

S1 E03 | ECHOES IN TIME

Episode Description

There lies a thin veil between this world and the next, so close that we can nearly touch those who linger there as energy and light. In this episode, we chat about spirits, mediumship, good and evil, old souls and more. Episode three includes a bonus extended version for those wanting to hear more about angels, spirit signs from the dead and the universal spirit or in other words, god.

S1 E02 | Sleep Paralysis

Episode Description 

WARNING SPOOKY CONTENT

Georgie grew up listening to her best friends terrifying ghost stories at sleepover parties when everyone was huddled together after eating mountains of party mix lollies and thins crisps. We have all been there for sure and Rhianon is taking us back there tonight for episode two, Sleep Paralysis. We hear what it is, what it feels like and how on a stormy night, home alone in an ancient house, Rhianon’s night terrors came to life. Let's just say we leave wondering more about the world we live in than ever before.

S1 E01 | Voices 

Episode Description

Georgie has never believed in ghosts and worse, has never sensed any connection to spirits despite her everlasting interest in the subject. Through this podcast, Georgie starts an often taboo conversation with many different people exploring themes of ghosts, spirits, paranormal activity and hence spirituality and differing belief systems. Her first interview is with local muso, Gabe Argiris, who illustrates his story about the voices he heard as a young boy when experiencing epileptic fits. Let's just say we leave wondering more about the world we live in than ever before.
