I’ve Been Thinking!

I have been thinking a lot about the podcast and where I want to go with it. You have probably noticed some of the changes already. I am looking to have more guests on the show, do more stories that I don’t have to worry about the copyrights, and even creating new original content. The field is wide open and the only block I face is my lack of imagination.

We Want Your StoriesThis is where you can help. Do you have ideas for the podcast? Is there someone you know that tells a great story? Maybe you have a favorite author you would like to hear. All of these things are how you can help Ron’s Amazing Stories to move forward.

You guys are great about sending in your stories. For that, I am truly grateful. They have become the backbone of our programs and life’s blood of what we do. So please send more of them in because “We Want Your Stories!”.

I guess the most important thing I want to say is to thank you for all of the support you give to me and the podcast. You guys are the best and why I do this each week!

Best Regards,
-Ron

A New Segment For You!

Ghost Stories With SylviaOn the podcast this week we debut a brand new segment called Ghost Stories with Sylvia. This really isn’t a true debut, but more of a continuation of a good thing. Ghost Stories with Sylvia actually first appeared on the podcast in RAS #174 on October 7th, 2014.

Sylvia Shults is a Librarian and Author by day, but at night she becomes a Ghost Hunter. She has spent a lifetime in the pursuit of the weird and the strange. Her non-fiction works include Ghost of the Illinois River, Fractured Spirits, 44 Years in Darkness, Hunting Demons and The Spirits of Christmas. All of her books are available on Amazon and are well worth a read. You can find out everything she does on her WordPress Home Page.

Here are the links to Ron’s Amazing Stories podcasts she has been on.

RAS #362 – Bigfoot Calling Bigfoot

Welcome to Ron’s Amazing Stories and a new year of podcasts in general. On this program, we have a bigfoot story from the Pacific Crest Trail, A medieval science fiction short story sent in and read by Corey Snow, and Tom Williams tells us what it is like on the other side of the green grass. So, kick it back, grab your beverage of choice, and enjoy the show.

Featured Story – Bigfoot Calling Bigfoot – Our featured story this week was sent in by a listener from Buffalo New York. I love the story because it takes place in the area of Washington state I am very familiar with, The Pacific Crest Trail. I personally have never had the pleasure of an encounter with Bigfoot, but I have heard of many stories told to me by people I respect. I have always believed that there is something out there.

Here are two links to go with Jeremy’s story: The Pacific Crest Trail – Official Site and Bigfoot Sightings From the Pinchot National Forest – The opening scene from this short film was shot in Stevenson Washington. I love the Predator music in the background.

The News – January 2019

Ron Amazing NewsWelcome to the new year. There are going to be some amazing changes to Ron’s Amazing Stories this coming year. One of which debuts this week. Tom Williams has been bringing us his stories for some time now under the segment, As Read By. Beginning Thursday Tom has his very own segment called Growing Up.

Speaking of new segments I have just signed some new/old talent for the show. Coming this month is Ghost Stories with Sylvia. Those of you who have around know that this has been a mainstay for the spooky season for the last five years. Starting this month Ghost Stories With Sylvia is going to be a 15-minute monthly segment with author Sylvia Shults. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this and Sylvia has expressed how much she is looking forward to it as well. She is the best Ghost Storyteller available bar none!

That is not all that is news here at the podcast we are looking at adding advertising to the show. I know that many of you are saying “NO!” I will make you this promise. It will be good stuff, things I believe in and have checked out. On last week’s Horror Express you heard the first of these. Gladdy’s Goodies made their debut as a sponsor with their short commercial. If you have something you want to sell or promote on Ron’s Amazing Stories please contact us at ronsamazingstories@gmail.com and tell us all about it. All submissions will be considered.

Finally, I am also excited to tell you about a new way to tell your story. Coming soon is Ron’s Amazing Stories Hot-line. Many of you have been asking for an easier way to tell your stories on the show. Soon, all you will have to do is pick up your phone and dial. You will be able to record your stories, make comments or ask questions to me without having to write a thing. This will be a test at first. My concern is that it will be abused and not be practical.  More on this later as I iron out the details.

Best Regards,
-Ron
