Prepare to bing, a haunting new Australian true-crime series has dropped and it will have you hooked. Ghosthunter, an Audible original podcast, took seven years to make and details the eerie realities of paranormal activity, a family's terrible forgotten secret and a police investigation. It follows Jason King, a self-proclaimed ghost hunter whose first ghost-sighting was that of his brother. He told Jason that he needed to find their estranged father, who disappeared during their childhood.
King teams up with documentarian Ben Lawrence, who becomes entwined with the eccentric charm and unusual nature of King’s unwavering belief in the supernatural and how it could be the key to unlocking his forgotten childhood. But things get complicated when a three-year police investigation interrupts their research into the King family’s murky past. Years of self-reflection, estranged characters from the past and haunted paranormal incidents bring the pair to a confronting conclusion - that the most terrifying ghosts are sometimes the ones we find within ourselves.

“You never know how deep the rabbit hole will take you," Lawrence says. "There were so many personal twists and turns over the seven years creating Ghosthunter that I found myself deeply immersed in Jason’s life, I was even the best man at his wedding. The podcast format meant we were also free to spend an extended amount of time telling the story, giving Ghosthunter the space and detail it needed to develop fully.”
Ghosthunter is available now, only on Audible.
