Paranormal Investigations Hawaii

A horror/comedy fiction audio drama podcast set in the Hawaiian Islands which reimagines some of the urban legends and ghost stories that local Hawaii residents have grown up with and asks the question, “What if a well-intentioned but out of his element paranormal investigator tackled these cases?” Harry Wong runs Paranormal Investigations Hawaii based in Downtown Honolulu. A former police officer, Harry left the force under mysterious circumstances to devote himself full time to investigating claims of the paranormal. Each episode features a different urban legend where Harry will attempt to unravel the underlying mysteries of the case while searching for something important which he thinks can only be found amongst the ghosts and demons he encounters. That is if he can survive them first.

Episode 6 - The Bow Tie Man - Part 1
In every city, large or small, there are unique characters you see repeatedly throughout town. These individuals possess distinctive appearances or attire that make them easily recognizable to everyone. You take notice of them, commenting on the seemingly peculiar coincidence of encountering them, and then continue with your day, soon forgetting about the encounter until the next time. However, what if these encounters were not mere coincidences? What if these characters harbored more sinister intentions? Such was the case with my encounter with The Bow Tie Man.

Episode 3 - The Haunting at the Moani Hotel - Part 1
The next time you stay at a hotel room in Hawaii, or anywhere else for that matter, especially if it’s an older hotel, you might want to consider that someone may have died in that very bed you’re sleeping in. Especially if it was a celebrity. Why do celebrities keep dying in hotels anyways? If I was a celebrity, I'd stay at an Airbnb instead. With the cleaning fees they charge, I would not want to die in an Airbnb. I might just maim myself a little. Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah, people die in hotel rooms all the time, whether by accident or on purpose, and sometimes, no matter how hard they try to clean up the remains, something may get left behind. Such was the case with Episode 3 of Paranormal Investigations Hawaii, The Haunting at the Moani Hotel.

Episode 1 - The Demon of 8th Avenue
If you’ve ever driven past the house that used to be on the corner of 8th Avenue and Harding in the Kaimuki neighborhood of Honolulu, you would look at it and think, that’s a haunted house. It was old and dilapi..dilapa..um..buss up, with paint peeling like an old wound that never heal correctly, the yard was all hammajang with a tangle of uncut grass and overgrown bushes, no one was ever seen inside or outside the house. So it must be vacant, right? But then why was there a single lightbulb in an upstairs window which was left on 24/7, like an eye that watched you as you walked or drove past the house. And sometimes, on a dark moonless night, if you looked long enough, you would swear you saw a shadow move just beyond the light. Well Episode 1 recounts my experience with this house and the Demon of 8th Avenue.
