Keywords

Uncanny USA
Uncanny USA is a podcast series hosted by Danny Robbins that investigates paranormal experiences and mysteries across the United States. The show features interviews with witnesses, experts, and researchers, and explores various theories and explanations for the phenomena reported.

Ouija board
A Ouija board is a flat board with letters, numbers, and sometimes symbols, used for communicating with spirits. It is believed that by placing one's fingers on a planchette, a small movable pointer, the spirit can guide it to spell out messages.

Haunted phone
A haunted phone refers to a phone that receives calls or makes calls despite being disconnected or otherwise inactive. It is often associated with the presence of a spirit or ghost who is attempting to communicate with the living.

Bigfoot
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is a large, hairy, bipedal creature that is said to inhabit the forests of North America. There is no scientific evidence to support its existence, but many people believe in its reality based on eyewitness accounts and anecdotal evidence.

Poltergeist
A poltergeist is a type of ghost or spirit that is believed to be responsible for physical disturbances, such as moving objects, making noises, and causing other unexplained phenomena. Poltergeists are often associated with negative energy or a troubled spirit.

Doppelganger
A doppelganger is a ghostly or spectral double of a living person. It is often seen as a sign of bad luck or a warning of impending danger. In some cultures, doppelgangers are believed to be manifestations of the person's dark side or subconscious.

Frogger
A 'frogger' is a term used to describe a person who is living in a house or apartment without the knowledge or consent of the owner or other residents. It is a creepy real-life phenomenon that can be difficult to detect and can cause significant distress for the unsuspecting occupants.

Infrasound
Infrasound is sound waves with frequencies below the range of human hearing. It can be generated by natural phenomena, such as earthquakes and volcanoes, or by human-made sources, such as wind turbines and jet engines. Some researchers believe that infrasound may be responsible for some paranormal experiences, such as feelings of unease, fear, and hallucinations.

Mojave Desert
The Mojave Desert is a high desert in the southwestern United States. It is known for its extreme temperatures, arid climate, and unique flora and fauna. The Mojave Desert is home to several national parks and monuments, including Death Valley National Park and Joshua Tree National Park.

Q&A

  • What new evidence was presented in Case 1, involving the Ouija board summoning?

    New evidence suggests the figure seen through the window may have stood on a faucet to reach the height. This theory was proposed by a listener named Kate Aillary, who pointed out the faucet in a photograph taken by Danny Robbins.

  • Why did Raleigh, the new witness in Case 1, choose not to speak on the podcast?

    Raleigh, who experienced the events alongside Marcus, chose not to speak due to the trauma of the night. He felt that if Marcus was still affected by the events, he was even more so.

  • What new information did Karina, Wendy's daughter, provide in Case 2, involving the haunted phone?

    Karina witnessed the phone calls and other paranormal activity in her grandfather's house. She described her difficult relationship with her grandfather and the strange occurrences she experienced after his death, including footsteps, lights turning on and off, and seeing a tall figure walking through the house.

  • What are the main arguments for and against the possibility of a Bigfoot sighting in Case 4 and 5?

    The main argument for the possibility of a Bigfoot sighting is that the creature seen by Fred was too large and had features that were not consistent with bears. The main argument against the possibility of a Bigfoot sighting is that the creature could have been a hybrid bear, which is a known phenomenon in some areas of Canada.

  • What evidence suggests that the figure Lisa saw in Case 6, involving the poltergeist, was not Derrick?

    Derrick, the homeowner, confirmed that he did not make it upstairs, suggesting the figure Lisa saw was not him. This raises the question of what the figure actually was.

  • What is the 'frogger' theory, and how does it apply to Case 6?

    The 'frogger' theory suggests that someone is living in a house or apartment without the knowledge or consent of the owner or other residents. In Case 6, the theory is presented as a possible explanation for the paranormal activity, but it is ultimately dismissed due to the fact that Lisa and Derrick built the house themselves and knew every inch of it.

  • What is the significance of the dark history of the land where Lisa and Derrick's house was built in Case 6?

    The land where Lisa and Derrick's house was built has a dark history, including traumatic removals of indigenous people, violent civil war skirmishes, and slave tunnels. This history could potentially be linked to the paranormal activity experienced in the house.

  • What is infrasound, and how does it relate to the cases discussed in the episode?

    Infrasound is sound waves with frequencies below the range of human hearing. Some researchers believe that infrasound may be responsible for some paranormal experiences, such as feelings of unease, fear, and hallucinations. Two experts mentioned infrasound in relation to the Bigfoot case and the poltergeist case, leading a listener to wonder if infrasound could be responsible for the phenomena in both cases.
