Episode 43: Spontaneous Human Combustion

Imagine if you will, simply sitting down to have a cup of tea, or sitting with a friend preparing for a fishing trip, when with no external heat source your body simply bursts into flames, burning you from inside of your body to the outside? Would you even feel the flames? Would you be aware that this was happening to you? And even if you were, could you do anything about it? Or imagine that you are a witness to such an episode? How would you react? What would you do? These are the situations that this episode confronts.

This episode is about the phenomena of Spontaneous Human Combustion, and shares witnessed and documented real-life accounts of people who have perished in this manner and a few rare, very lucky people who had this happen to them, but survived to share their experiences [….]

Well put together Paranormal Podcast. Found this great paranormal podcast. Nice lot of NZ content which is great but also global guests and topics. Looking forward to listening more.

Clearly well researched with really interesting subject matter, and guest stories! Spooky at times, but that’s part of what makes it interesting.
