Is this the best podcast in the world? No. Is it close? Yes. Rebecca and Jason are fantastic. They cover interesting and entertaining stories and they are authentic and funny along the way. I was super lucky to have Rebecca as a guest on my podcast (Choose Your Struggle) and I can tell you she's as authentic and honest in interview settings as she is on her show. I reccomend Ghost Town probably two or three times a week. It's truly wonderful. Never change. Either of you. You're wonderful the way you are.
I love the storytelling, but I don’t like how you chat and advertise in the middle of the episode. If you stopped or did less of that, I would give it five stars. I understand that it hurts when you get a bad comment, but I feel you are not taking the advice behind the rudeness. I feel that you are ignoring any and all constructive criticism, and that is why you are GETTING the bad reviews. If you begin taking the steps to do this, you will have less bad comments, and more five star reviews. -TacoKitty13
Great podcast for easy listening! Love the down-to-earth format, less of a serious factual vibe than other podcasts. This is something I can lie down and relax to which is great, especially when times are so stressful! People asking for less ads and chatting (the ads help them make money so unless you’re paying you really don’t have the right to complain, and the chatting is a part of their style???) It’s an overall great show that I truly don’t think deserves all the hate! Keep up the good work guys!
Absolutely love this podcast. I’ve never wrote a review before, but I had to stop and write one for this. I do a lot of driving and this podcast has been a lifesaver! Jason and Rebecca keep me entertained and educated! Listening is so much fun, and there is always a topic I’m interested in. Definitely worth a listen, or better yet, just subscribe!
One of the best podcasts I’ve found! Every story is interesting the of amount of research they put in is unbelievable they’ve made me a lifelong listener for sure!
I heard Jason interviewed on StoryWorthy by Christine Blackburn and I had to check out Ghost Town. I liked it I was pulled in. The format is a great way to learn more about stories I was unfamiliar with... I don’t read Rolling Stone or watch 48 Hours or have Reddit so I’m glad to learn these stories that are intriguing and disturbing.
Ghost Town is one of my favorite shows. They cover fun, weird stuff while still staying lighthearted overall. They don’t take themselves too seriously, their chitchat is fun, and it’s been a fun journey listening to their improvement over time. Definitely worth spending a few hours to binge!
Read a some reviews saying rather unkind things, so I wasn’t expecting much but I found myself seriously entertained over a very long flight.
I have to say I have been listening for the last week and binging on all the episodes. There is been a lot of pleasant surprises and unusual episodes that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Thank you so much for the entertainment and diversion from my regular life.
I tried this podcast after I saw it under suggested podcasts for Stuff You Should Know’s Taliesn Massacre episode. One episode soon became three and three episodes soon became thirteen and so forth. It is similar in many ways to another beloved podcast focused on the bizarre (pun intended) The Untold Hour w/ Jess and Bowser. However while the former is a mixture of ghost stories, interviews, spooky new, horror movie discussion, true crime and fun personal stories ..this podcast has shorter episodes with more of a focus on haunted locations and locations with dark history like Atlas Obscura. I also love California’s history; it is the only place on my bucket list. I just wish the one true haunted place in Harford County, Maryland; Perryman’s Mansion, hadn’t been demolished. On a personal note I struggle with depression and your episodes along with songwriting and illustrating are extremely therapeutic. I can’t wait to have my new 90’s Nickelodeon concept album out next year via Distrokid and I can think of no better way to promote it than to join the 25$ Patreon; because half the profits (if I get any) from streams and purchases will go to the Make A Wish Foundation..not to mention I’ll get access to the “bony’s”. I thoroughly enjoy it and cannot recommend it enough.
I love the topics! they cover really interesting, creepy, and skin-crawling topics. Their ad and ‘check-in’ breaks are very annoying, but effective at making me want to sign up for patreon.com/ghosttownpod to skip the ads. If you don’t want to do that, just fast-forward through the commercial breaks.
Love the topics they cover, but I wish they’d stay on topic and it seems the woman will interrupt the man with “okay” “yes” “uh huh” etc. A lot! Other than this I really like it and hope they cover more with staying on topic.
I’m new to the podcast and really most of what I have heard so far. Thanks for helping the time fly by while my daughter is doing school work and work around the house. Would more info on the Jonbenet Ramsey email. Thanks Scott
Well, I listened to almost every episode over the last week, and thought it would be kind of rude not to donate, but it was worth every penny and then some. I don’t think you guys need to change anything. I like the talking and have the same sense of humor so it just feels like I’m with my friends except I don’t add anything to the conversation haha. I mean, in my head I am and you guys think I’m hilarious so it’s working out this way. I know life is busy so I appreciate you two doing all the work that goes into the show.
I love this podcast and the topics that they talk about. However, they talk a lot and that can take away from the subject
Rebecca come live with us. We have plenty of deep fried cheese based foods,ciggys and Diet Coke. you can have them whenever you want. Even after 8pm. That’s my hard sell.
I love this show. Jason and Rebecca are articulate and entertaining, and I appreciate the research that goes into every episode. By having episodes to look forward to, they have helped me maintain my sanity during this crazy time.
Enjoy the show and chemistry with hosts is on point, and it’s gotten so much better since the beginning. The longer the episodes the better for me, but I do appreciate getting a second short episode at the end of the week. I came back to edit my review because again it’s gotten so much better in my opinion and a lot of that seems to be from them taking listener feedback. Two thumbs up. Would recommend.
... First episode I’ve ever listened to of Ghost Town and you had me with a subscription and 5 stars at about 12 ish minutes in to the Action Park show. Happy to have discovered y’all!
I really enjoy this podcast. It’s not super serious and I enjoy the banter. Give it a shot!
Listening to this podcast is like sitting around with your best friends telling stories. Jason and Rebecca are great story tellers and their quick wit is hilarious. My only complaint is that I wish the episodes were longer. 10/10 would recommend
Love this podcast! There’s a lot of interesting topics covered, and although I only listen to the paranormal episodes, there’s still so much to listen to. I really enjoy the comedy aspects of the show, and I like how the hosts are so honest about anything that deserves some skepticism. There is a lot of self promotion, but if you don’t want to listen to it then just skip through it.
These podcasts are the perfect length, well researched and very interesting. I subscribe to 60+ spooky podcasts, and Ghost Town is one of the only ones doing unique spooky topics. You won’t get the same old same old with Ghost Town. Highly recommend.
You can run the streets with your thugs I’ll be waiting for you while listening to this podcast until the cows come home I will be a listener
Sometimes I just need...a little something. Ghost Town Pod is my go-to when I want to be interested, laugh, think a little but not have to invest 4 hours or need a mental break from baby Murder and societal decay. Ghost town pod won’t shy away from baby Murder or societal decay, but it isn’t ALL about baby Murder or societal decay, and you’ll still find something to laugh about. Plus I feel like I could sit down and have a burrito with either host which is nice.
The hosts are sweet and have a lovely communication style. I just happened to have watched that episode of Unsolved Mysteries! Loving it so far and I’m hooked 😍
I would 10/10 recommend this. i’m a super boring person and don’t hang out with anyone, so listening to podcasts is what i’ve been doing. this is the best one, the hosts are super funny and i love the stories they provide.<3
