In 2008, a teenager was hiking through a forest in California when he decided to stop and set up camp for the night. He walked several hundred feet off the trail into the woods where he found a small clearing in the trees, and set up camp there. A few hours later, the teenager woke up suddenly and thought he heard something moving outside. It was the middle of the night, so it was pitch black outside, and he had no windows on his tent anyways, so he just laid still for a second, and listened. A few moments later he heard the unmistakable sound of footsteps slowly moving toward him.The audio from this story has been pulled from our main YouTube channel, which is just called "MrBallen," and has been remastered for today's podcast.Story name, preview & link to original YouTube videos:#1 -- "The People in White" -- Teen solo hiker lives a nightmare in California forest (Original YouTube link -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx6YxG8SD_A)For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSPOILERS BELOW THIS POINT:.....Main Sources:1) This story, which is on Reddit, can be found by googling the following "Hunted on the Pacific Crest Trail reddit".

In February of 1985, a couple (a man and a woman) were sitting inside of a car chatting about their relationship, when the woman finally just turned to the man and said, “OK, you have to tell me, it’s now or never.” The man looked at her, and could see she was serious, and so after a long pause, the man sighed and then leaned across the center console of the car, and whispered something into her ear. Little did he know, she was not the only person who could hear him.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

Late one night in November of 1975 a man came home from work and parked his car at the end of his driveway, which looped around the back of his house. After sitting in his seat for a minute, he turned his car off, and then stepped outside into the cold night air. From there, he walked toward the side of his house where there was a path that led around to his front door, but before he could reach his front door, he heard a voice call out to him from somewhere off to his right. The man stopped and stared into the darkness, wondering if he really had just heard a voice at all, but then as he stared, the voice called his name again. Confused, the man walked to the fence at the edge of his property, and looked over it to see who was there. Little did this man know, he had just walked into a trap.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

In March of 1990, a detective in Florida, who was investigating a missing person case, decided to search for them in a forested area near a busy highway. The area had been searched before, but this detective just had a hunch that something could still be in there. And so he stepped into the thick rows of trees and began walking deeper and deeper into the forest. Eventually he reached a point where it was so thick in front of him, he didn’t know if he could physically get through. But he decided he would just keep on going a little bit further. And after only a few minutes, he reached a clearing, and in the middle of it was something huge.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

In late December of 2003, a 32 year old man named Russel drove along scenic back roads on an island off the coast of Washington State, until he arrived at his destination, a house tucked way back in the woods. After driving down the property’s long driveway, Russel pulled into a parking spot and came to a stop. After turning off his car’s engine, Russel went to unbuckle himself, when he stopped. Because right in front of him, in the tree line, he saw a figure moving in the shadows. As Russel leaned forward and strained his eyes to see who it was, the figure suddenly emerged and began walking quickly toward Russel's car. At first Russel thought he knew who this person was, but as they got closer, he knew that he didn't. But before Russel could do anything about the situation he was in, the stranger from the forest had arrived right outside of Russel’s car door and had begun staring down at Russel through the glass. As they did this, Russel turned to look at them… and what he saw was so shocking he just froze in terror.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

In the fall of 1994, a 52 year old woman pulled into the driveway of her home in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and then turned her car off. As she sat there for a minute, chatting with her daughter on her car phone, she was suddenly startled by someone running up and knocking on her window. When she turned to see who it was, she saw this big guy standing in the driveway who she didn't recognize. But when she rolled the window down just a couple of inches, and she was able to hear what this guy was saying, the woman relaxed. Then she got out of her car, shut the door behind her, and then led this guy into her home with her… That man would later be dubbed, “The Bathroom Man,” and he was there to do something horrific to that woman.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

In 1996, an 18 year old college freshman named Diane, began acting strangely. She would suddenly break down and start crying hysterically, and then a second later, she'd get extremely mad, and then a second after that, she'd be fine again, as if nothing had happened. For a while, her classmates thought her erratic behavior must be tied to her just really missing her boyfriend, who went to another school. But when Diane's classmates finally approached her and asked her what was going on, she gave them an answer that at first sounded so unbelievable, they assumed it was a joke. But Diane wasn't joking, and she had the scars to prove it. Horrified, Diane’s classmates left her bedroom and ran to tell school staff.For 100s more stories like this one, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about content:We do not do any original reporting.

In 2016 a woman had just pulled into her driveway in her quiet neighborhood in Missouri, when suddenly her passenger door flung open and in jumped a man she didn't recognize who was wielding a knife. The woman froze in terror hoping this was just a robbery, but when the man spoke, she knew this situation was much much worse. Ten minutes later the police arrived at the woman’s house, and what they saw in the hallway of the first floor shocked them. However, the real shocker came a week later when they realized who this man was, and why he had gone to that woman’s house in the first place. This story starts a bit slow, but then it spirals into madness very rapidly.

In 2004, a woman living in Nashville, Tennessee, was sitting up in her bed one night trying to get some homework done for a Bible study class. As she sat there, she started to feel tired and so she decided to call it a night. She bookmarked the page she was on, and leaned over to put her Bible on the bed side table, when she suddenly froze. The house was supposed to be empty, her family was out for the night... but now, standing at the foot of her bed was a person, just staring up at her... and this person was dead.For 100s more stories like this one, check out my YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallen....Note about our content:We do not do any original reporting.

Sorry but I'm not giving any money to Amazon. Hope you open it up to other platforms eventually. Love the show.

why are you switching only to Amazon Music? now I won't be able to listen to your podcast. this isn't a good move. you'll isolate quite a few of your fans.

Why are you going to Amazon? I miss the days when podcasts were free and a fun hobby for podcasters and authors.

How terrible. It's always sad when a child murders a parent. I hope they all found peace in the afterlife.

Mr ballen is awesome even if you aren't into all of the topics, the storytelling is the best. No one can come close to his skills.

I'm such a huge fan of this show. I watch on YouTube and take advantage of any "captive audience" to share my favorite tales of the strange dark and mysterious
