A man is murdered in his own home by intruders who are convinced he’s a curse-wielding witch. The ghosts of the past still linger in the cells of a forsaken penitentiary. After attending a wedding, a 30-year-old woman vanishes without a trace, never to be seen again.
These are just a few of the cases host Deana Marie investigates on her podcast Twisted Philly. Listener, rest assured, each episode will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Deana has a knack for unearthing the real-life crimes and otherworldly encounters that haunt Philadelphia and the state of Pennsylvania.

To some, Philadelphia may seem an unusual setting for such a spooky podcast. Look closer, however, and you’ll discover a dark side to the city of Brotherly Love and the state of Pennsylvania as a whole. From an eerie stroll amid the headstones of Philly's historic Laurel Hill Cemetery to the shocking case of Jordan Brown, an 11-year-old boy from New Beaver who entered the bedroom of his pregnant, soon-to-be step-mother and shot her while she slept, Deana invites her listeners on a journey into the shadows of her beloved home.
Deanna employs a straightforward approach to every episode while maintaining compassion for the victims and their families. It’s a potent combination that makes her audio investigations irresistible.
