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!
I was listening to a past episode earlier in the week. In the episode,, a lady had called in about her son having memories of his “real dad” during a past life and one night woke up screaming because his “real dad being dead.”
It sparked a memory of something that happened when my oldest son was about 3 years old. I’m not claiming this is paranormal. It could simply be something odd. But, it certainly is interesting. At least, I think so.
My son was about 3 years old when this occurred. My wife and I had bought him a book, called “My First Encyclopedia.” I decided to sit with him and read a bit.
My wife was in the kitchen fixing dinner but easily within ear-shot of our conversation. I was randomly turning the pages and stopping on different subjects with pictures and asking him questions — “What’s this?” “It’s A Tiger.” etc.
I turned to a page with an entry for Russia. I was moving to turn the page because I didn’t figure there’d be anything on that page that would interest him. But he shot his hand out and stopped me. He pointed to a photo of St Basil’s Cathedral and said very excitedly, “I used to work there!”
I repeated back to him, “You used to work there?” My wife, by this time, had moved over to see. He looked at me and said, “Yeah, when I was big and you were little (meaning my son was the adult and I was the child), I used to work there.”
I asked, “What did you do there?” He said, “I helped poor people.” ..Then he got a very sad look on his face and said, “But then the bad people came… I don’t want to talk about it,” and he closed the book.
My wife and I were shocked. I remember just staring at her with my mouth open. When I regained my composure, I opened the book once again to a different page with some animal on it. We talked about that. Then I turned to a page with trains or something and we talked about that. Then I turned to the page about Russia. My son just looked at the page. I asked, “Do you know what this is?” pointing at St Basil’s. He said “No.” I said it was a church in Russia and moved on.
He never mentioned anything about it ever again and he doesn’t have any memory of that moment. I don’t know what it was, and I’m tempted to brush it off as just a little kid’s imagination. But, knowing the history of Russia, the pieces could definitely fit.
Anyway, I thought you might find it interesting too.
