    I went to the Hellfire Caves when I was a bit younger, plan to go back some time and learn more about it. Used to go to caves a lot over the country.
    Paul’s story of him and this old guy freaking each other out with the sound monitors is one of the funniest things I’ve heard.
    Haha you should do a subscriber ghost hunt ;)
    (Also: For some reason the pod episodes never showed on RUclip for me, so the playlist is the only way I can watch them)

    Does anyone else remember during Ashens early years a video of him on some ghost walk with his friend? Or am I crazy and did it never exist?

    Really need to give props to Gannon's story telling. He has a way of keeping your interest throughout and hitting hard with the end. That story with the ghost hunting and the lady who's husband had cancer was told so well.

    I dont know, in the theme you guys played I heard influences from Blockbusters and an old news show rather than BTTF or Starwars

    You know, Paul's humor never landed with me on Barshens or Digitiser, but hearing him speak more candidly and in a less performative way here, I really, really like him. I'd love to see more of him as a guest here.

    This is really good! There's nothing like Barshens on RUclip in my opinion. Barshens videos feel quite refreshing, whatever the format, I think because you get the vibe that Stuart, Barry and co genuinely enjoy hanging out.

    Paul's views on ghost hunting as a business and as a social phenomenon are interesting actually you guys should do a part 2 to this if he and you have more to say

    I once worked in retail and a customer came in asking for a good pair of headphones for ghost hunting. How do you sell someone a pair of headphones for something that doesn't exist? I imagine her trying to return them saying they don't work instead of just realizing the truth.

    Barry and Stuarts latest videos have a combined figure of 250k views yet this isn't even at 25k. Why?????

    • Decadent Nightmare

      @Barshens thanks for responding! It deserves more views. Long live Barshens!

    I'll mirror the sentiments from a number of commenters on the previous video - the audio in this is a marked downgrade from the previous format. Hard on the ears.

    • Barshens

      We are working on it and have some better mics

    This was a great show. I enjoyed it more than a lot of previous content. Good job!

  • Bradley D

    This might not be a popular opinion, but I think I will enjoy the new format more. What I enjoy most about Barry and Stewart is just listening to them talk and bullshit about random ass things. So this podcast format is perfect for me.

    Watching a podcast like this is a bit voyeuristic.

    Paul's temp experience reminds me very much of my university experience. Jesus. I dropped out, moved back in with my parents and got a dog. Rest in peace Gunner!

    I remember that one psychic lady on TV who tried to read information of the dead in front of the family of the deceased. When she made a wrong guess, the family corrected her, and she just casually replied, "I don't care!"

    if you play the audio backwards it sounds like theyre saying 'give slepp bones' over and over. its true, i am psychic.

    I really hope if you take Paul's advice re: the Sharticles theme, you specifically use THAT sound he used to demonstrate because its better than any stock sound could ever be. x)
