About

Hello friend!

As Southern Mysteries has grown over the past two years, I’ve been so encouraged and moved by folks like you who have taken the time to connect. Reading this means you’re already a little more invested than the average listener which means the world to me!

I’ve often been asked if I would offer more content and a way for more folks to support the show. To be honest, I held off on offering you a Patreon option until I could ensure I could properly manage my time between my full time job, the bi-weekly show AND keep my commitment when I offered more content to members here on Patreon.

At the request of faithful Southern Mysteries listeners, I’ve created a way for you to join in the effort and become an active member and participant in the podcast by supporting the show. As interest in, and support of, Southern Mysteries grows, my goal is to offer more content.

What is Southern Mysteries?
The podcast tells the stories of historical mysteries, legends and myths of the American South. The show explores regional stories and the history behind them.

Southern Mysteries is for anyone who appreciates
  • Stories
  • History
  • True crime
  • Legends and folklore
  • Southern Accents

Southern Mysteries is created, researched, written, recorded, produced, and marketed by me, Shannon Ballard. This is a solo effort but it’s been a source of joy for me since day one.

I've always been fascinated by the history of the American South and the stories of the people and places that make this region of America such a fascinating and unique place to call home.

Southern Mysteries is a “side gig” for me. My full time job is in broadcasting in Jackson, Mississippi. When I’m not dedicating my time to Southern Mysteries and my full time job, I’m on the road to explore and research historic locations in the deep south. You can see photos and the stories behind them on my Explore the South Instagram.

Many of the stories featured in Southern Mysteries Podcast were inspired by visits to cities and towns in the Deep South and my constant passion to learn more about the places and people I’ve learned about along the way.

Hearing from you and knowing you’re listening to the show and want to hear more is my driving force. It’s the reason I’ve invested time and money into the first two years of Southern Mysteries and the reason I’m now offering you something extra.
