Taking A Look Through The Q Files

Back in 2017, we interviewed Shane and Kai of the fabulous Queer Ghost Hunters to follow-up on how their first year on YouTube went. When we first got wind of this wonderful team, we interviewed Shane, Kai, and Scott on their origins and how they all came together to go after the mysteries of the supernatural.

Now Shane is back! This time with fellow Queer Ghost Hunter, Lori, to talk about their podcast, The Q Files. Unfortunately, ghost hunting is not a cheap endeavor to do regularly. So due to their love for podcasts and the paranormal, Shane and Lori decided to start one.

The Q Files does something a bit different than other podcasts in its vein. The Q Files not only uses conversations and interviews, but also audio from the field on Shane and Lori’s ghost hunting expeditions.

back when i lived in japan, one of my musician friends told me this story, which absolutely happened to another musician he knew. he had another story about the ghost of an aquarium fish, but that wasn’t as cool.

i’m syd (he/him) and love the idea of pushing horror to a place where it’s not only acceptable to the palettes of my queer peers, but made by us. there’s so much more to be scared of out there than some bro who’s greatest fear is his bro taking his girlfriend at a cabin party and then the lights go out bro.  my dream horror would be like junji ito but really gay. and maybe set on mars, and shot with a handicam. no jumpscares no jacobs ladder wiggle we die like colonizing astronauts
