  • Summary

  • Please note: this series contains mature content and listener discretion is advised.

    The first ghost Jason King ever saw was his brother's. And when the spectre told Jason that he needed to find their estranged father, who disappeared during their childhood, his life was changed forever.

    When documentarian Ben Lawrence reads an article about Jason, now a western Sydney security guard and part-time ghost hunter, he embarks on a seven year journey into a gothic world of suburban graveyards and broken souls.

    Paranormal activity, a family's terrible forgotten secret and a police investigation converge in Ghosthunter, a part family memoir and part true crime podcast. Years of self-reflection and estranged characters from the past bring Jason and Ben to a confronting conclusion – that sometimes the most terrifying ghosts are the ones we find within ourselves.

Ghosts come in many forms

Be warned contains subjects of sexual abuse & domestic violence.

Jason meets his brother he never knew he had & after he dies sees his spirits & from there starts hunting ghosts. But also needing to know more about why he didn't know he had a had brother till he was in his late teens. Also wanting to know how did he get the scare on his face & why can he remember most of his childhood. This takes place over several years with what started with an article in the paper, Ben befriending Jason, accompanying him on some of his ghost hunts, while helping to work out what happen to Jason when he was young & who Jason really is today. Starts in one place & ends somewhere completely different. I found this a really interesting listen & binged it all in one day. If you're put off by the 'ghost hunting' aspect, this is a small part of the story & small part of Jason, this is more the foundation or backdrop of what sets of a journey of discovery.

Gripping, immersive and short.

This was an interesting one.
Thriller documentaries aren't really my thing but this podcast got me hooked immediately.
Between the characters and the narration this series found a sweet spot.

Unfortunately I think this should've been longer.
Literal years would go by during each episode but it never felt like it.
My immersion would break the instant a character would say.
"I haven't seen him in a while"
Even though I literally heard them talking a scene before.

All of this would get worse near the end with a rather anticlimactic ending.
Yes, that's how life works but this series was partly building up to a moment of human revelation.
A revelation that occurred in the passage of 5 seconds.

With all of that aside...
If you like strong narrated stories or documentaries give it a try.
If you dislike major time jumps and anticlimactic moments give it a miss

Engaging but sad

Not at all what I thought it would be, but still engaging. At times it felt like we were eavesdropping so quite uncomfortable. but in the end Ben has respectfully told Jason story warts-and-all .

Rivetting

Unexpected twists make this a compelling podcasts. Interesting examination on the shades of grey when looking at whether a person is good or bad.

The only ghosts are the ghosts of his past.

It doesn't have much to do about ghosts, but the story told might just be more interesting than Ghost hunting. Had to listen till i finished the story.

Eye opening!!!

More than a "Ghosthunter"

Whilst the title describes who Jason is, it's not an accurate depiction of what the audiobook entails. In saying that, I was pleasantly surprised by the captivating story uncovering Jason's life. The only thing that bothered me is that it didn't quite feel complete in the end, but it is a documentary and there's always going to be a risk in that. The audio was really well done and it was overall a great listen.
