Dark Watchers of California – Haunted Cliffside and Coastal Paranormal Encounters | EXPANSION 4.8
Through deep research and high-strangeness storytelling, three brothers explore paranormal encounters and unexplained events. Collecting freaky listener stories and scouring the dusty pages of classic Fortean texts, the brothers use high-production sound design to set the scene for alleged real encounters with, Dogman, Poltergeists, Bigfoot, Fairy Folk, Humanoids, UFOs, Shadow People, and Sky Creatures.. just to name a few.
Attempting to parse out the facts within folklore, the brothers of the Hole banter about everything from bizarre historical mysteries to emerging clandestine conspiracy theories, often challenging their own beliefs and sometimes each other’s sanity. Good humor, good drinks, and good discussion! Have you ever overheard a co-worker shakily tell his story of a real encounter with a Dogman? Has your friend or weird uncle told you about his close encounter with a reptilian humanoid from the sewer? Looking to corroborate your grandma’s true ghost stories? Were you born with a thirst for the mysterious? Well, sit back and pour yourself a big glass from the Belief Hole, my friend, and help us dig the weird!

Standing sentinel on the California Coast is the stunning and mysterious Santa Lucia Mountain Range. But among this wild beauty, there have been reports of phantoms. Dark looming “watchers”, have allegedly been seen since the arrival of the Spanish in the 1700s, and perhaps going back millennia earlier with the native Chumash people.
Reported by travelers and locals alike, the accounts remain consistent. Adorned in dark cloaks and wide-brim hats, these black giants of the fog stand motionless, and with featureless faces, surveying the crags and cliffs with a haunting, uninterrupted gaze.
Should you approach one of these ever-vigilant sentinels, they will simply vanish into the mist that shrouds the secrets of this ancient land. What are they, and what is their clandestine purpose?!
