Comedian Rachel Fairburn launches brand-new podcast Ghoul Guide - a hilarious exploration of the supernatural

Published by

Comedian Rachel Fairburn has launched a brand-new podcast exploring her lifelong passion, the supernatural.

Ghoul Guide with Rachel Fairburn is the latest co-production from Global, the Media & Entertainment group, and The Story Lab, part of Dentsu Creative.

Previous co-productions as part of Global and The Story Lab’s output deal include Big Zuu’s Feast is Feast and LBC podcast Hunting Ghislaine.

Robbie Ashcroft Managing Partner The Story Lab, Dentsu Creative Entertainment said: “Ghoul Guide is our third original podcast series in partnership with Global and we are delighted to work with Rachel. She already has a hardcore social following and with Global backing we can’t wait to see her reach new fans.”

Megan Wastell, Director of Product and Podcasts, Global Player said: “I’m so excited to be working with Rachel. We really love creating new, interesting, and distinct shows and her Ghoul Guide is exactly that. We also love working with The Story Lab, they’re a great creative partner and I’m proud of the shows we’re building together. The compelling stories we’re discovering not only create entertaining content for our listeners to enjoy, but they also open up brilliant opportunities for advertisers to get involved with too.”

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.

Across six episodes, 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 the genuine folklore. Rachel must undertake a night of supernatural investigations to separate the ‘real’ story from the ones invented to terrify her.

Rachel Fairburn, the unlikely ghost hunter, will scare herself silly in Glastonbury, Ediburgh, Dunwich, Brownsover, Ruthin Castle and Whitby where she’ll be telling chilling ghost stories, giving hilarious commentary and telling ghosts to eff off.

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.

Every episode of Ghoul Guide with Rachel Fairburn is available exclusively on Global Player and episodes are released weekly on other podcast platforms.
