For the longest time I've been interested in bringing something to the podcasting world.  It's been years since Dobie Maxwell and I hosted a weekly 4-hour paranormal radio show on AM-1050 WLIP, which was always an absolute blast.  However, how do you carve out your own paranormal podcast niche when there are already amazing shows out there like "See You on the Other Side," "New England Legends" and "Lore?"  Partnering with one of my best friends and co-workers at the International Screenwriters' Association, we decided to look at the storytellers who make up the paranormal community and take a behind-the-scenes look at the art of crafting scary stories.  The show is a constant balancing act between talking about the craft of storytelling/writing while also telling some intriguing stories.  To start, however, we decided that our pilot episode should discuss our own stories.  Max & I talk about how own histories of being storytellers who love ghost stories and history.  Listen to our pilot episode by clicking here or on the logo.
Episode 1 of The Fantastic Story Society features a conversation with folklorist and storyteller, Jeff Belanger.  His most high profile work is as lead researcher on Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures, but Jeff has created a number of works on his own including several books, the web series "30 Odd Minutes" and his current podcast series "New England Legends," which is celebrating over 100 weekly episodes.  Jeff dives into his passion for writing and storytelling

We talk with Mike Huberty, who not only co-hosts the "See You on the Other Side" podcast and performs with the rock group Sunspot, who creates music based on ghost stories, but has also launched a multi-city haunted tour company.  We dive into his origin story as a ghost story junkie and the lessons he learned setting up tours in cities across the midwest.
