British Ghosts, South African Cryptids & Aleister Crowley – FSS Inductee, MJ Dickson

Max & Scott dive into working on ghost hunting TV shows with producer and investigator MJ Dickson, who has looked into paranormal stories & haunted locations across the globe. Her fantastic story alone is worth tuning in for!

As we call this meeting of the Fantastic Story Society into session, we are honored to induct a new member… An African-born Brit, she’s a writer, producer, investigator, entrepreneur, organizer of her own live events including the Sage ParaCon, which was something we really enjoyed virtually during the pandemic. She’s an overall curator of all stories paranormal.  So, yes, the PERFECT person to help us kick off our fourth year of the Fantastic Story Society.  She

is associated with a bevy of popular paranormal investigation shows, both behind and in front of the camera, including Destination Fear, Paranormal Lockdown and many more.  She’s also the only person I’ve ever heard described as a skeptical psychic.  I am looking forward to talking about haunted sites around the globe and hearing some great ghost stories from our newest member, Ms. MJ Dickson.

I do want to also mention early that you can find her at and from there you can find out much more about her including how to be part of her Patreon community.
