MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories

Episode 45 -- "Austrian House of Horrors"


Today’s podcast features two separate, unique stories that share a theme: stories that are so messed up they sound fake, but, they are actually true. The audio from these stories has been pulled from my YouTube channel, which is just called MrBallen, and has been remastered for today's podcast.

Story names, previews & links to original YouTube videos:

  • Story 1 -- “This Chatroom Kills People" -- Two teen boys are pulled into a bizarre plot (Original YouTube link -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vihYdB3SkuE)
  • Story 2 -- "The Old Man's Secret" -- A terrible secret was discovered in an Austrian basement (Original YouTube link -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgL41aUL7tY)
