Haint Blues is a bi-weekly podcast from veteran journalist Toby Sells. In it, he explores strange stories from the American South, everything from the unusual, the unexplained, and the paranormal. Along the way, Sells hopes Haint Blues will bring a deeper understanding and appreciation of Southern culture at large.

Southern Culture without the skids...
Toby's podcast is like the blinking red light at the crossroads of Mark Twain and Campfire Tales where you stop for a minute to soak up your environment before heading back to Granny's house for some sweet tea. Well done. A great podcast from an authentic voice.
First rate southern culture
If you like southern lore and the paranormal, well, this is about perfect. Even if you don’t, you should listen anyway. You will before you’re finished. The stories are riveting and concise. A technically well-executed podcast, too. Love the music and the editing. I could listen to Toby read the phone book. Subscribe!
