Season 1

00: Parkdale Haunt: Trailer

When Judith Antoni's best friend takes off without warning, it's up to her to figure out exactly what is going on and why she left...

01: Whereabouts

Judith Antoni’s friend Claire has gone missing. Well, she’s alive, but she’s taken off and no one can track her down. Judith enlists the help of her friend Owen to start digging through the recordings made when Claire took possession of a house in Parkdale and things started to get… kind of weird.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/the paranormal, cults (mentioned), the occult, alcohol

02: New Walls

Judith and Claire start working on the house, which comes with some unexpected issues, such as the endlessly creepy basement or the unsettling writing on the walls. They’re also presented with a difficult choice of which is worse: your ex showing up unannounced or 100 house centipedes in your sink?
CONTENT WARNINGS: Alcohol, the occult, insects

03: No Good Deeds

What’s that in the basement? Is it a ghost? A demon? A very angry raccoon? Possibly all three? Claire and Judith investigate the downstairs finally and find that it is truly creepy in more ways than they would’ve expected. The recordings are getting freakier though, and one new one starts to shed a little light on what might have precipitated the changes happening to Claire.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Animals, hauntings/paranormal experiences, blood (mentioned), darkness, fainting, gaslighting, alcohol

04: Subterranean

In the recordings, Claire talks about finding diaries in the basement of the house, along with her new sleepwalking-related issues. Hoping to get their hands on some books, Judith and Owen head over to the house to root through the basement, but the house and whatever is inside it does not want them there.

05: Divination

Claire finds a homemade spirit board in the closet. Rather than hurling it out a window, she decides to invite people over to try it out. Turns out the house has a few things to say, and it’s feeling chatty. And aggressive.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/the paranormal, alcohol

06: House of Worship

Judith’s discomfort is causing tension with Claire, and things are getting heated, and the recordings are getting more and more odd… Also, remember: always take the time to get to know your neighbours, because you never know what memories of a terrifying blood cult they might have.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/paranormal experiences, cults, knives, fire (mentioned), alcohol

07: Crosstalk

Judith is displaced from her apartment and has to crash in Claire’s guestroom. It’s going ok, aside from the sleepwalking. And the sleeptalking. And the fact that Claire keeps covering the house in broken glass in the night. And the creepy things she’s saying. Actually, it’s just a mess across the board.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/paranormal experiences, fire (mentioned), sleepwalking, possession, alcohol

08: Hesitations

Ever gotten a phone call from an unknown number that scares the hell out of you? Judith has, and she decides the best plan of action is to start crashing on Owen’s couch. They visit A. Bird to see if he’s maybe behind the issues at the house, but he’s got problems of his own. But it’s not just him who should be worried, it’s Judith and Owen, because the recordings aren’t just changing… they’re starting to talk back.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/paranormal experiences, fire (mentioned), murder (mentioned), cults, alcohol

09: Disquiet

Still no word from Claire, and Judith and Owen are starting to really feel the stress of the shifting recordings. An unsettling recording from Adam doesn’t give them much closure either. Whatever is causing this, it’s decided that it’s had enough, and Judith and Owen better watch out… But it’s ok, recordings can’t hurt you, right? … Right?

15: Reflux

There’s nothing like an old friend coming around for an unexpected visit, especially when all the doors are locked, and you’re not at home.

Plus, you get an episode AND a Q&A all in one. It's like Christmas in March, if this is what you wanted for Christmas (a highly specific ask if there ever was one).

00: Season 3 Trailer: Claire

How do you move forward after all the pain you've caused?

21: Yet

YET: in addition. It's the morning after the worst night of Claire, Judith, and Owen's lives. How do you pick up the pieces? Where would you even start? Where do you go from here?
CONTENT WARNINGS: The occult, alcohol/drunkenness, mental abuse

22: Pollard

POLLARD: to cut off the top and branches of (a tree) to encourage new growth at the top; a deer which has cast its antlers. There's nothing worse than an ex who won't let go, aside from an ex who sends their friends over to your place to try to get you to stay. Wait, did I say "stay"? I meant "be attacked by eldritch nightmare beings." It's the next morning, and the hangover is real. Like, it's real but also metaphorical. Everyone's feeling rough, but that won't stop Lydia. She waits for no one.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Hauntings/the paranormal, cults, violence, insects

23: Malison

MALISON: (archaic) a curse. There is a certain amount of vulnerability you need to be able to have with someone to share a bed with them, to share a space, to go out in public unapologetically. There is a certain amount of courage and foolhardiness one must have to do these things while a plume of smoke starts to waft in your direction, as the winds change and the fires come ever closer. Judith, Claire, and Owen attempt tiny bits of normalcy while surrounded by an ever tightening ring of fire around them. The air grows thick and dark and all Judith wants is for things to be ok again (and also to have roasted fingerling potatoes). Is that so much to ask?
CONTENT WARNINGS: The occult, stalking, fire, physical violence, possession, death

24: Ere Long

ERE LONG: (archaic) before long; soon. Claire lets off some steam while Judith and Owen go antique shopping. What? Not everything is doom and gloom, only most things. Sometimes you just have to take a little walk and see what the day brings you (and sometimes that thing is... a singing fish? Am I reading this right? Ok, whatever).
CONTENT WARNINGS: The occult, dolls, sex (mentioned), physical violence, blood (mentioned)

25: Torsion

TORSION: the state of being twisted. There are plenty of good things about your university days, but spending time in the big sterile libraries is rarely one. It's especially not great if you're perusing the occult section while someone keeps an eye on you. There are eyes in the shelves, eyes in the halls, and eyes in the house... watching, always watching.
CONTENT WARNINGS: The occult, religion, confinement, body horror, blood/knives, possession

26: Irascible

IRASCIBLE: having or showing a tendency to be easily angered. What lives in the basement of your mind? What do the voices in your head say to you in the dark? How deep do those fears go and what will you do the day you come face to face with them? You can't run. You can only listen. Do not go downstairs Do not go downstairs Do not go downstairs

27: Small Hours

SMALL HOURS: The very early morning, just after midnight, when most people are asleep. SPA MENU: Manicure - $58 40-Minute Massage - $150 Full Body Soak and Scrub - $189 Full Body Immolation - Complimentary The Fires of Moloch Burning Away the Sin Within Your Flesh - +$50 (weekends only) I just want to say here that I think we're the first podcast to include a cursed ONroute (for the non-Ontarians in the audience, this is the name of the highway rest areas with restaurants and whatnot), so make a quick run in to get a bagel for the road and grab me a coffee, because we got a long drive ahead of us deep into the endless dark.
CONTENT WARNINGS: The occult, physical violence, possession, fire, ghosts, death (mentioned)

28: Caliginous

CALIGINOUS: misty, dim; obscure, dark. Starting anything with, "Webster's Dictionary defines..." is always a bad move, so I'll just say this: Family is whatever you need it to be. You can be born into it or you can build it. You can weave threads between yourself and others to create a web that holds you all within its strands. Family can be born and family can be broken, and family can leave you with more questions than answers. What do you need? Who does this make you? How thick is the blood that pumps through your veins, Claire?
CONTENT WARNINGS: Physical violence, the occult, fire, death

29: Quietus

QUIETUS: final settlement (as of a debt). "Glacial Lake Iroquois was a prehistoric proglacial lake that existed at the end of the last ice age approximately 13,000 years ago. The lake was essentially an enlargement of the present Lake Ontario that formed because the St. Lawrence River downstream from the lake was blocked by the ice sheet near the present Thousand Islands. The level of the lake was approximately 30 m (~100 ft) above the present level of Lake Ontario. The subsequent melting of the ice dam resulted in a sudden lowering of the lake to its present level [...]. Two ancient shorelines in the Toronto area mark the existence of former glacial lakes. About 2 km inland from the shore, a ridge known as the Iroquois Shoreline can be discerned. The old shoreline runs west-east, running roughly parallel to Davenport Road just south of St. Clair Avenue West. Further east, the Scarborough Bluffs also formed part of the shoreline of the ancient lake." (Wikipedia) Remember your past. Walk until your legs give out, head out to where the shore used to be and wait by the edge. Watch the city lights under darkness. Think about what is to come. Remember where the water once was. How do you prepare for the end?

30: Amaranthine

AMARANTHINE: undying. Trust. Simple in theory — do you have faith in someone, someone you love, someone you know, someone you care about? It can be difficult in practice, and there comes that moment where you ask yourself how do you find faith in the darkness? Who do you place your confidence in? Who can you rely on? To the people we love, we say: “Take this, please. It’s my heart, it’s my faith. Don’t break it. Don’t lose it. Don’t hurt it. Don’t hurt me.” Trust is the ability to lie in bed beside someone and, even in the most anxious of sleepless nights, know that you are safe. Trust is the knowledge that you will always find shelter from the worst of the world. Trust is the warmth of intertwined fingers. The steadying pressure of an embrace. Trust is a gift. Don’t break it. Don’t lose it. Don’t hurt it. Don’t hurt me. In the stygian darkness, who will stand beside you? Who will walk with you into hell? Who will walk out? Do you trust your friends?

30.5: Parkdale Haunt Presents “The Big Snow”

It's the holiday season, and the light of the street lamps are dim in the thick snow that blankets the city. Toronto can be cold in the winter, but sometimes you come across a case that makes your blood turn to ice. Everything changed the night she walked into my office, and there's no going back now. The nights just keep getting longer and, sometimes, it feels like they're only getting darker...

31: Parkdale Haunt: The Post-Mortem (Part 1)

Well hello again. It's been one year since the end of the show, so Alex, Emily, and Ian decided to sit down one more time to answer some outstanding listener questions, reflect on the series, and give a little insight into what's coming next... This is not a spoiler-free zone, so if you're new here, this might not be the best place to start. Also, we also talked for way longer than we originally expected, so this is Part 1 of 2. Surprise!
