Welcoming you all to Season Six of the 222 Paranormal Podcast.
In this the first of a four-part series, we are exploring haunted asylums. Places that housed the sick, the poor, the mentally challenged, the criminally insane, still hold the spirits of the former residents, patients, and long dedicated employees, who either can't move on or just are not willing to leave. In the 260th episode of the 222 Paranormal Podcast, we bring you to Ohio to one of the most famous and infamously haunted asylums, Athens Mental Infirmary, better known as The Ridges. Nestled deep in the heart of Ohio, the one-time massive complex housed thousands of poor souls who needed care, who were sent there due to circumstances beyond their control, many who never received the care they needed but met with sad despair, severe mistreatment, and some no treatment at all. The souls still roam the campus and halls, the buildings and long-forgotten cemeteries, with no one to hear lonely cries and longing.
