A man named Luke originally reached out to the show on behalf of his younger brother. His brother Keegan left home to hitchhike and travel the country, which eventually turned into living on the street for years. When the family finally got Keegan off the street, he had many stories, but there was one in particular that he was nervous and afraid to discuss, involving a mysterious group called "The Chicken Whackers". This story was very different from our normal submissions, which is why we liked it. This first part is mostly Keegan's backstory, what it's like living on the street, and how dangerous it can be.

I have hypnogogic hallucinations. Scariest time of my life. Had them every night for a year and then suddenly they stopped. I’ve seen things that I can’t comprehend. Eventually they turned into auditory hallucinations and now I have to sleep with a fan on high to drown out the voices talking to me. No, I’m not schizophrenic 🫣 I was very aware they weren’t real.
