Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal Paradise

When most people think of Hawaii, they imagine sand, surf, and the Aloha Spirit....but spirits of a different kind may occupy the Hawaiian islands. Most people visiting the islands don‘t know of Hawaii‘s haunted history. Want to learn of the haunted hotels and the restless spirits that still roam the grounds? Or why whistling at night attracts spirits of the dead... Come join me, Uncle Jared, as I cover these infamous tales on my podcast, Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal Paradise

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.     Aloha Ghostlore of Hawaii Ohana! I am your host Uncle Jared, thank you for joining me for our virtual bonfire here on the beach!   Tonight's episode is the first in an ongoing series that covers the many haunted hotels of Hawaii.  The first hotel covered in the episode is the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, located just a few minutes north of Lahaina on the island of Maui.  The controversial obstacles developers came across during the resort's construction was the start of new laws introduced to the state.  These laws protected the land and any historical artifacts discovered during construction.  The second part of this episode takes us to the south coast of Kauai to a small hotel built way before these new laws were put in place.  Many claim the hotel was cursed from the very beginning due to the developer's disregard for items found and used in it's construction.   So sit back, get comfortable, and let's get into this....   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!  Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required. Wassup, howzit going?!  Aloha and welcome to Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise!  It's your host, Uncle Jared! Tonight I'm going to pivot and switch things up a bit.  Instead of the paranormal, I'll be discussing the very real problem of mysterious creatures found in the jungles of Hawaii.  Many of the predators I'll discuss could have deadly consequences for those who stumble upon then in the wild.  The catch, they're definitely NOT supposed to be found in Hawaii. So sit back, keep your eyes and ears peeled for any strange sounds in the jungle behind us, pop a green bottle, and let's get into this....   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!  Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.    Howzit going?  Aloha and welcome to Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise!  Thank you for tuning in! Tonight's tale originated from a story I heard long ago that happened to a boy while he was out on a hike in the jungle.  Growing up in Hawaii, it was common for us to get into trouble while playing outside, unsupervised.  So getting into a scenario similar to what tonight's main character goes through was very possible, meaning, suffering the very same fate.  That thought terrified me as a child.  I'll elaborate at the end of the tale.... So thank you again, I'm so happy you're here.  Whether our bonfire is at the beach or camping in the jungle, it always means so much that you're taking the time to hang out.  So kick back, make yourself comfortable, grab drink and some pupus, and let's get into this.....   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!  Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.    Aloha! Welcome to the premiere of Season 2 of Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise!  I've missed you all so much over the break in between seasons! Tonight's episode is based on a tale I heard from Lopaka Kapanui, of Mysteries of Hawaii (https://www.mysteries-of-hawaii.com).  Lopaka is one of the most respected and well known storytellers in Hawaii and was a close friend and protege of Glen Grant, who I've mentioned numerous times on the podcast.  Lopaka operates the 'Mysteries of Hawaii' haunted tours on Oahu with his family which is the go-to tour group I recommend to all.   I've had numerous requests for more stories involving Kimo, the Kahuna featured in a couple of stories from Season 1, so guess what?  He's back!  Kimo makes a visit to the home of an elderly couple who fear their daughter has been possessed by something evil.  However, for those of you excited for Kimo's return.....I have to warn you, don't get too attached..... So sit back, get comfortable, get all of your "essentials" (pop them green bottles, spark the paranormal pakalolo).....and let's get into this....   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!  Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.    Aloha!  Thanks for joining me on tonight's virtual bonfire!  I see you got the fire started, mahalo very much!  I've been so busy. The trailer you heard at the start of the episode was for my friends Amanda and Trevin with the Seriously Sinister Podcast.  They discuss "killer facts and spooky true petty crime stories" which was my cup of tea.  Check out the Seriously Sinister Podcast's linktr.ee in the show notes.   Tonight's story involves the bloody history of Pakaka Heiau (temple), bad TikTok dances, and the repercussions of disrespecting the dead...   So sit back, pop a green bottle and....yunodakine.... and let's get into this.     *Note:  All names and characters were created for this story.  Any similarities to a person, or persons are purely coincidental.   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!  Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Trigger Warning:  This episode briefly mentions the suicide of an adult.  Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.   Aloha!  Mele Kalikimaka and Happy Holidays!   Welcome to the Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise podcast!  I'm Uncle (Unko) Jared, thank you for joining me on the beach next to the bonfire!    Episode 10 is a little different...  This is the first tale of the podcast that is based in Japan and originally told by Japanese horror writer Yoshida Yuuki(吉田悠軌).  I heard this story on the Kaidan Japanese Scary Stories podcast.  Host Riyoko translates Japanese horror stories into English with commentary by Co-host Cat.  This story by Yoshida was one of the most original tales I've heard in a while.  This is my interpretation of his story along with my own personal twist at the end.  If you want to listen to the version of the story my version is based off of, check out Riyoko and Cat on Kaidan Japanese Scary Stories.  This was the first story of their first episode.     In the outro, I'll explain how this story connects to a few experiences I had as a child in Hawaii.  When I heard this tale, it instantly reminded me of memories I had at around 4 or 5 years old.  So get warm next to the fire, pop a green bottle, light up some finey-piney (pine as in Christmas tree), and let's get into this.....   The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!     Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required.    Aloha!  Happy Halloween! For this Halloween episode, I'll be covering one of Hawaii's most well known ghost stories.  Mention "Morgan's Corner" around any Local and most likely (more like 100% likely) they'll know exactly what you're talking about.  I'll talk about the legend of Morgan's Corner along with the haunted history behind the Nuʻuanu Pali, the mountain side that the road is located on. Lastly, let's dip into the true-crime I talk about the very real and brutal murder that happened at Morgan's corner.  So get comfortable, pop open a green bottle or two.  Spark up some paranormal pakalolo....and let's get into this....   Find me on Instagram at: ghostlore.of.hawaii UPDATE!!! Just as this episode was finishing being mastered, I was able to get a PHYSICAL COPY OF "THE PICTURE" that I talk about in this episode!!!  My parents packed up some stuff from my bedroom in our old house and down in the bottom of the box was my copy of Glen Grant's book 'Obake Files:  Ghostly Encounters in Supernatural Hawaii'!  He included the color photo of what he and his students captured that night at Morgan's Corner.   Check out my Instagram for the higher quality picture along with the screen-grab I took of Grant's 'Chick'n Skin' TV special that aired in Hawaii back in the mid 90's with the man himself (I do not own the rights to the photo).   https://www.instagram.com/p/CVvkdkIvbcN/ The Ghostlore of Hawaii Patreon is now live!   Click the link below to become a Patron and gain access to additional bonus, full-length and mini-episodes only available on Patreon!
