Wikipedia hat geschrieben:The ParaPod is a comedy podcast hosted by comedians Ian Boldsworth and Barry Dodds. Its subject matter is the paranormal with skepticism represented by Boldsworth and belief represented by Dodds.
The podcast ran for three series (ghosts, mysteries, conspiracies) and three specials between 2015 and 2018, with a movie scheduled for release in 2018.
The three series consists of 30 episodes and, as of April 2018, it has been downloaded over 2 million times.
Episodes usually follow the structure of "intro" (paranormal- and podcast-related news), "featured haunting" (the main subject matter of the episode); "The BD Files" (listener correspondence); and "rituals" (ways to allegedly summon a ghost). Some episodes have also featured pre-recorded or live telephone interviews and a 2016 special took the form of an outside broadcast at a purportedly haunted house in Pontefract, Yorkshire.
Each episode begins with a warning in the style of a legal disclaimer not to enact any of the rituals or instructions described in the show.

The movie trailer shows them travelling the country in a customised hearse with Dodds trying to convince Boldsworth of the existence of ghosts. In one clip, Boldsworth mentions they are heading to Pluckley in Kent, reputedly the most haunted village in Britain, while other scenes are shot in the Edinburgh vaults and 30 East Drive, Pontefract, which is said to be home to a poltergeist.
