About the Host

MichelleProfile Photo


Host, author and producer

Hi I’m Michelle.
Teacher, podcaster, history and paranormal enthusiast and woman who wears many hats and spins many plates including dog whisperer- as you will often find Archie my dog- joining me during podcast recordings where he promptly falls asleep clearly not as enthusiastic about the subject as I am. It does mean his dulcet snoring can often be heard gently in the background- his contribution as occasional co- host needs a little work.
I live in Oxford in the United Kingdom and I love travelling and exploring historical sites throughout the UK for its history and haunted activity. One of the best gifts I ever received was English Heritage vouchers to use to explore various different historical sites. I had the best summer that year. (For friends and family possibly reading this please note that hint for future gift ideas!)
I started this podcast as an adventure through some of my passions. It has been immensely exciting getting to know lots of other people around the world who have these same common interests. I’ve been humbled by the encouragement and support from strangers and people who have become new friends! I truly could not do this without you.
This isn’t something I have done before and I’m learning everything as I go along - from equipment, to editing, to even creating this website. I’m loving it though- it’s a lot of work - but worth every second. Thank you for being patient as I learn and improve along the way. I have big dreams of where to take this podcast and community I hope we build here. If you wish to support that dream and this channel please take a look at the membership page as a means to help with this.
