Ghosts. Spirits. Monsters. Since childhood, Rachel has been fascinated by the otherworldly. There’s just one problem with her obsession… She’s absolutely scared to death of everything spooky.
Throughout six episodes of her new podcast, Ghoul Guide, Rachel visits some of the UK’s most haunted destinations where a storyteller recounts three local ghost stories. The twist? Only one of them is genuine folklore.
Rachel must undertake a night of supernatural investigations to separate the real story from the ones invented to terrify her.
Join Rachel Fairburn, the unlikely ghost hunter, as she scares herself silly in Glastonbury, Dunwich, Brownsover, Ruthin Castle and Whitby.
She also stops at Scotland’s spookiest city, Edinburgh, for a visit that’s equally hilarious as it is terrifying.
Expect chilling ghost stories, hilarious commentary and Rachel telling ghosts in no uncertain terms to do one!

Rachel is an award-winning comedian who has six critically acclaimed solo shows under her belt.
She’s also the co-host of the worldwide smash hit podcast All Killa No Filla which has several sell-out UK tours and a tour of the USA.
The podcast is released tomorrow, in time for Halloween, of course.
She has been a staple of the Edinburgh Fringe since 2014, with six critically acclaimed solo shows under her belt and her gags are regularly listed as the best in The Fringe.
“My dad loves his dog more than us, he makes it a roast chicken seasoned in herbs every Sunday,” she said as part of her set in 2018. “Which is stupid as dogs have no concept of Thyme.”
Not bad at all. Hopefully she can do scary as well as funny!
