Ghoul Guide With Rachel Fairburn
Rachel Fairburn has a lifelong passion: the supernatural. She's read the stories, seen the horror movies, and been ignored by the iconic ghost hunters, it's time to really live the supernatural. In her new podcast, Ghoul Guide, Rachel will meet 3 people who tell her the spookiest stories connected to a location; and then she'll spend the night in those haunted places. The twist is - only one of the spooky stories is really local folklore, and the other two are scripted inventions by some of Britain's best horror writers - and it's down to Rachel and (the audience) to pick which is the real story out of the three chilling tales as the sun rises.
All Killa No Filla
Join comedians Rachel Fairburn and Kiri Pritchard - McLean as they explore a shared passion, serial killers. Each episode the pair will talk all things murder and macabre and have a right laugh doing it.
