Uncanny USA – Danny Robins takes his investigations stateside

Posted Filed under

This spring, Danny Robins expands the reach of his hit paranormal investigations series. 

The show, which began on BBC Radio 4 in 2021 and has since made the leap to television, will now look into unnerving tales of paranormal experiences drawn from across the US.

Here’s what we know about Uncanny USA:

The supernatural investigative series takes listeners on a chilling journey – from Texas to California via the Alaskan wilderness – with first-hand experiences and expert analysis, as well as questions and theories from listeners. Across the upcoming series, Danny meets a young man in South Georgia who survived a terrifying night of poltergeist activity seemingly sparked by his Aunt’s ouija board, talks to a woman who believes her father, a former Spy, is contacting her from beyond the grave, and explores a host of other intriguing encounters, sometimes frightening, sometimes moving, that take him on road trip across the States, from the voodoo shops of New Orleans to the celebrity hotspot of Montecito, California.

The series also promises a chilling case of a potential UFO encounter and sinister cover-ups in the American South. Plus, a journey to uncover one of America’s most enduring mysteries: the legend of Bigfoot.

Host Danny Robins said:

“It’s been thrilling watching how Uncanny has grown and connected with so many people over the last couple of years, with listeners around the world sharing their strange experiences with us. I can’t wait to get exploring the stories we have been sent from America, uncovering fresh mysteries and welcoming even more US listeners to our Uncanny family – whether they’re Team Believer or Team Sceptic!”

Uncanny USA is a Bafflegab and Uncanny Media production for BBC Radio 4. The Executive producers are Danny Robins and Simon Barnard.

The first episode of Uncanny USA will be available on BBC Sounds from Tuesday 30 April. New episodes air every Tuesday on BBC Radio 4 at 11pm.
