This spring, award-winning writer and broadcaster Danny Robins is embarking on an international journey with "Uncanny," delving into unnerving tales of paranormal experiences from across the United States. Originally a hit series on BBC Radio 4, "Uncanny" has evolved into one of the BBC's most popular podcasts, captivating audiences with its eerie narratives. Now, Robins is set to expand the series' reach with a focus on American encounters, promising a chilling exploration of the supernatural that will captivate listeners on both sides of the Atlantic.

Robins, known for his previous work on Radio 4's global smash hits such as "The Battersea Poltergeist" and "The Witch Farm," as well as his award-winning West End play "2:22 – A Ghost Story," brings his expertise in crafting gripping tales of the paranormal to "Uncanny USA." The series, set to premiere on Radio 4 on Tuesday, April 30th, invites listeners to join Robins on a spine-tingling journey through the heartland of America.

From the voodoo shops of New Orleans to the celebrity enclaves of California, Robins will delve into the strange and mysterious, blending elements of horror, mystery, and the supernatural.

Throughout the series, Robins will explore a myriad of intriguing encounters, including a young man's harrowing brush with poltergeist activity and a woman's belief that her deceased father, a former spy, is communicating with her from the afterlife. Additionally, "Uncanny USA" will delve into the realm of UFO encounters and government cover-ups in the American South, as well as the enduring mystery surrounding Bigfoot.
