IN THIS EPISODE: I’ll tell you about the sad death of John Sellers, which teaches us that if you must pass from this earthly realm, at least be considerate enough to do so in a way and at a time that is the most convenient for those around you. (A Case of Criminal Neglect) *** In October you can find haunted house attractions on just about every street corner, with a multitude of themes – haunted asylums, ghost hospitals, zombies in cellars, and hell houses. But in 1905, visitors to Coney Island were treated to a different kind of Hell attraction all year long, not just in October. It was a boat ride that, for the cost of one dime, was meant to literally scare the hell out of you. (Coney Island’s Hell Gate) *** What type of person raises a young girl, telling everyone she is their daughter, and then years later marries her? That’s just part of “The Disturbing Story of Sharon Marshall.” *** A man wakes up one morning to find his entire family has been handcuffed – and the paranormal is to blame! (Ghost Handcuffs Family) *** It has happened to all of us. Something will disappear, and then come back later or relocate to somewhere else before we find it again. It could be car keys or a wallet, or maybe an important paper. Why does this happen?

And there is one race known as the Oghar that very few know about – and it has been practically wiped from history.

Sharing the podcast with others helps me to continue creating content – and it also helps get the word out about important resources for those who struggle with depression. Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: People keep reporting sightings of a giant five-foot long worm lurking in the Gobi desert. Witnesses say it’s armed with spikes, it spits venom, and if you get too close it can even take you down with an electric shock. It’s known as the Mongolian Death Worm. If you’ve not heard of it, it’s because no one to date has yet been able to photograph it. So does that mean it doesn’t exist? Or is it just too fast to capture on film? (The Mongolian Death Worm) *** Mount Pentelicus near Athens, Greece, is where the marble was cut to build the Parthenon. But more recently it has a more sinister reputation – for being haunted. Particularly around a certain cave known as “Davelis Cave.” (The Penteli Cave Enigma) *** Do you have people in your lives that you can’t stand? A co-worker perhaps, or a family member, or a grumpy neighbor. You may call them “toxic”, but there was a lady who was so noxious that people couldn’t literally stand her. Her name was Gloria Ramirez. (The Toxic Woman) *** For six years, Fritz Haarmann used his position as a police informant to hide in plain sight while he carried out at least 24 grisly murders as the "Vampire of Hanover." He was also called by some “The Butcher of Hanover”. But neither nickname given to him by the public comes remotely close to describing how evil the man truly was, or how gruesome his crimes actually were.

“WHEN OUIJA AND SEANCES GO HORRIFYINGLY WRONG” #WeirdDarkness

Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: Seances and spirit boards have a long history in cultures around the world, however, not every attempt at communication with the afterlife goes as planned. Even experienced mediums may run into an unpleasant spirit from time to time, and those who have no experience whatsoever may find themselves overwhelmed by a strong-willed entity with an inclination to do harm. We’ll look at numerous examples of seances and Ouija board sessions that went horrifyingly wrong, one particular demon who seems to show up more often than others that should scare the hell out of you, and later in the episode we’ll look at the flip side of seances – the ones that aren’t real at all. We’ll talk about masquerading mediums, imitation investigators, and dubious demonologists. Perhaps this episode will serve as a cautionary tale to leave the dead to rest in peace.WANT TO ADVERTISE WEIRD DARKNESS OR BE A SPONSOR?Weird Darkness has partnered with AdvertiseCast to handle our advertising/sponsorship requests.

Are any of these stories based on truth? (Tales and Legends of Area 51) *** Weirdo family member Alex shares how fleeing an abusive father brought some comfort from an unexpected source. (Guardian Angel) *** Soon after her disappearance, Dorothy Jane Scott's family began receiving chilling calls from an unidentified caller. (A Killer Calls) *** Classes are now back in full-swing for college students, and many high school juniors and seniors are already in the process of choosing a college to attend in the future.

We’ll look at the origins of the werewolf, look at whether they are actually real, and if so, how one goes about becoming one, and some of the cures believed to release the man from the beast. Of course, it’s not always the Wolf-Man… sometimes it’s the Wolf-Woman. We’ll look at the most fearsome lady werewolves throughout history! I’ll tell you about the trials and punishments of those convicted of being werewolves – many probably wish they’d have confessed to being witches instead! Plus, what if I was to tell you that werewolves truly ARE real – and that a small village has been terrorized by them for decades – right up to modern day? There is convincing evidence to back up my claim!

Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested and pleaded guilty; he received multiple life sentences, bringing the Golden State Killer trial to an end several decades after the murderer's bloody reign began. But the most shocking part of his story for most, even more so than the brutal and monstrous crimes, was the fact that he was a trusted member of law enforcement – a man the public was expected to trust and depend on. We’ll look at the crimes he committed… and the trial that finally put him away for good. Plus… imagine being married to someone for forty years, only to find out that person is the Golden State Killer. We’ll look at the life of Sharon Huddle, who understandably wants nothing to do with the press. Was she fooled by her husband for all those years, or did she know all along that her husband was truly a serial killer?

(Kidnapping, Babies, and Blackmail) *** Before we knew it as tuberculosis, most knew it as consumption – and it was almost always fatal, with those who had it seemingly being consumed by the disease, which is probably how it got its name. So it should be no surprise that homes where the disease took up residence were devastated, and whether or not they are haunted by the paranormal, they are certainly haunted by the dark memories and energies of those who were consumed there. Including one particular home a doctor in 1915 will describe for us. (Consumption Cottage) *** Norfolk’s Horning Village is not your typical residential area of living – the village slips back and forth in time every five years. And one family knows that’s true, because they were stuck in one of the time slips. (Timeslip Village) *** When fans of the paranormal hear the name ‘Rendlesham’, the first thing that springs to mind is an incident that happened over three nights around Christmas 1980, when it was said that several spaceships visited the nearby airbase. What they don’t think of is Ariel the mermaid, or Daryl Hannah from the movie “Splash”. But maybe they should. (The Mermaid of Rendlesham) *** Isabella of France is a fantastically interesting historic figure, even more so because of how little-known she is. You’d think a queen who was known as a she-wolf would be something you might have read about in history class. (Isabella: She-Wolf of England) *** But first, the figure, who is known as 'Le Loyon' has been called Switzerland's answer to the Loch Ness Monster, wears a military uniform and a thick cloak, with a gas mask covering his or her face. Who or what is he? We begin with that story.

“THE MOST HAUNTED LIGHTHOUSES IN THE WORLD” #WeirdDarkness

VOTE for Weird Darkness to be in the HOT 50 PODCASTS in Podcast Magazine! https://weirddarkness.com/vote (Come back every day to vote again!)Please tell others about Weird Darkness – your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime. Sharing the podcast with others helps me to continue creating content – and it also helps get the word out about important resources for those who struggle with depression. Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: Accounts of haunted lighthouses have existed for hundreds of years. To many they are considered to be isolated and romantic. Some lighthouses are possibly haunted due to tragedies from shipwrecks or other horrors that have spawned all sorts of lighthouse lore. Some who have spent the night at a haunted lighthouse come away with stories to share such as seeing a former lighthouse keeper, or resident of the keeper's home. Could they still be present in some form after their death? Could keepers possibly remain behind to make sure no further tragedies occur at sea? Perhaps the worst fear of a lighthouse keeper, a ship wrecked upon the rocks, is why some lighthouses continue to be haunted by their former captains. Lights turning on, movement of objects, disembodied voices, and see-through specters are often reported within, or around older lighthouses. Are the ghosts of these souls still on duty? Modern-day tragedies at sea still occur and so do the ghosts that eventually haunt our world. If their walls could talk, lighthouses could share many stories from the past. Unfortunately, these objects don’t have the ability to tell their tales – but the phantoms that haunt them just might.

(The First U.S. Kidnapping For Ransom) *** I’ll share true kidnapping stories told by the victims – stories you’ve never heard, because none of them made the evening news. (True Stories of Abduction) *** In some kidnapping cases, the victim outsmarts their abductor. We’ll look at a few quick-thinking abductees whose out-of-the-box thinking and determination to survive helped them to escape their captors. (They Outsmarted Their Kidnappers) *** In some cases of kidnapping, the victims have an opportunity to escape – but don’t. They even try to help those who abducted them in the first place. In many cases this indicates the victim is suffering from a terrifying type of brainwashing we’ve come to know as Stockholm Syndrome – and we’ll look at a few famous cases of it. (True Cases of Stockholm Syndrome) *** A beautiful California co-ed was kidnapped in 1974 - and two months later, she burst into a bank with a machine gun. We’ll look at how Stockholm Syndrome changed 19-year-old wealthy heiress Patty Hearst into a cold-blooded bank robber.

It supposedly did happen in real life and I’ll tell you the story! (The Leflore County Bigfoot War) *** The body of 25-year-old Jason Chase was found several weeks after he had gone missing – but the cause of his death was a mystery to everyone for almost twenty years. (The Eerie Death of Hiker Jason Chase) *** There are people in life that you just would rather not deal with. Wouldn’t be great if you could just put them on ice and let some other future generation deal with that person? Well, aside from the morally unacceptable actions you’d have to take to make that happen, the technology for doing so might not be too far away. Some of the ulta-wealthy are making plans to be brought back to life later, or to live for a very long time, or… even to be immortal. (How The Super Rich Plan To Live Forever) *** Soon after moving into their quaint Massachusetts country home in 1981, Lui and Dale Passetto encountered a force of pure evil that almost destroyed them and their family. (The Passetto Family Possession) *** On August 29, 1890, a 16-year-old boy named Otto Lueth was hanged at the Ohio State Penitentiary in Columbus. He had been tried and convicted of the murder of Maggie Thompson, age 9 – a murder for which he had shown no remorse. It is a sad and tragic story… but also one of utter horror.

Evelyn Berstrand has crafted an amazing tale about a grandchild finding out something incredibly disturbing about a deceased grandparent with the story “My Grandmother Left Behind Some Really Dark Secrets”. But first up, I’m reaching back to 1893 for a classic tale of horror written by an American Civil War soldier, wit and writer, Ambrose Bierce. The story, “The Damned Thing” first appeared in the magazine “Town Topics” on December 7th in 1893… a magazine, interestingly enough, not known for horror at all, but more for art, music, and society.

“CENTRALIA, PA: THE REAL LIFE SILENT HILL” and 2 More Oddly True Stories! #WeirdDarknessPlease share Weird Darkness with your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime – and thanks for doing so!IN THIS EPISODE: Desolate vistas, noxious gas, people sinking into the ground – no this isn’t a description of a scene from a horror film. It’s every day life in Centralia, Pennsylvania, a creepy abandoned town that’s been on fire since 1962, and was the inspiration for one of the most terrifying video games ever created. (Centralia, Pennsylvania: The Real Life ‘Silent Hill’) *** Once upon a time, there was a boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He fell in love with a girl whose parents disapproved, and they ran away to be together… Sound familiar? I guarantee you haven’t heard this love story, which is, as the newspapers put it, “as unique a romance as ever a pair of young lovers engaged in.” And for once, the newspapers weren’t exaggerating. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll want to bang your head against the nearest wall when you hear the story. (Romance In The Time of Ice Cream Sundaes) *** We’ve all gone to the bathroom or kitchen sink for a drink of water. Have you ever had a sip of that water and suddenly one day it tastes a bit… off? In most cases it’s nothing to worry about, something innocuous has seeped into the water line but is harmless and disappears quickly. But then there are times it’s something to worry about – like when you are unwittingly drinking the liquified remains of a corpse. (Drinking Corpse Water)

We cannot deny this. But some of the races were quite strange – a bit too strange to be believed. Are we trying to erase perhaps thousands of years in our history, just because the facts do not fit in our history books? (Mysterious Humanoids Existed With People Millenniums Ago) *** In the middle of the 20th century, people across the United States called for the closure of mental asylums. Stories of horrific abuse emerged from asylums nationwide. But what happens when you forcibly shut down all of the asylums at once? America found out, and it wasn’t pleasant. (The Unexpected Consequences of Forced Closure of Mental Asylums) *** The murders of a 21-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl are found to be connected… but only after thirty years. And there might possibly be a third victim connected as well. (The Murdered Bunny and Forgotten Serial Killer) *** U.S. Senator Marco Rubio says UFOs could pose a threat to National Security. Could he be right, or is he off his rocker? (UFOs, National Security, And Marco Rubio) *** A girl is possessed by the spirit of her dead grandfather – and he forces her to do penance for his wrongdoings. (The Possession of Nicole Aubrey)

If you claim things are going to happen because God says they will – and then they don’t happen – that means you’re cray cray, and a false prophet. That also makes your followers a bunch of dupes.

Horrifying atrocities committed by the most evil of human beings – but in one case, in Culver City, California, it wasn’t a man who engaged in these obscenities, but specters of the paranormal. (A Famous Case of Frightening Entities) *** We’ll look at a handful of out-of-body experience stories directly from those who lived through them – and they might change your opinion about the afterlife. (Surviving Out of Body Experiences) *** Weirdo family member Daniel Hagan shares how he once explored some woods on his bike and ended up pedaling for his life to escape paranormal beasts that appeared from nowhere. (Demon Dogs) *** Digging in their backyard, two brothers find what appear to be small human heads carved of stone… but the curious find turns creepy once they bring the heads into the house, resurrecting sightings of a wolf-like creature not seen in almost seventy years. (Hexam Heads and the Wolf of Allendale) *** In 1886 Chicago, one of the nation’s very first serial killers would build a sadistic chamber of horrors to live out his most demented fantasies. (Murder Castle of Chicago) *** We’ll look at true encounters from Redditors who claim to have come across doppelgangers – their exact duplicates, or duplicates of those they love – and it’s almost always a disturbing experience.

So much so, that a subcategory of Reddit was created solely for those who have experienced a shadow person and wish to share their story. We’ll share some of those reports. (Real Life Encounters With Shadow People) *** Many towns have tales of an old woman who might be a witch of some kind. Warrington, England had its own local, evil crone. She was known as Old Peggy Gronach and was described as being “evil, ugly and haggard.” But was she truly a witch? Many people thought so! (The Strange Tale of an English Witch) *** Succubi are female-appearing sexual demons that approach men in a variety of ways, usually while they are sleeping, then seduce them. Often men report that their experiences with succubi are positive and enjoyable, but just as often, they report that the pleasure had a thread of something evil running through it… and that thread leads to utter destruction. (The Deadly Allure of the Succubus) *** And the woman you are living with right now – your own wife or girlfriend – is it possible she is a succubus? We’ll look a bit deeper into the signs of a succubus so you can be aware and on alert! (Is My Girlfriend a Sex Demon?)

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend “Church of the Undead” to your friends, family, and co-workers! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Have you heard the latest controversy about COVID-19? Apparently the vaccination is of the devil, it’s the “mark of the beast”. Well, it all started with Kanye West – the famous rapper (and current husband to Kim Kardashian) who recently found Jesus. A large number of Christians around the world were excited upon hearing this, as it would be an opportunity for so many to hear about Jesus through a celebrity. But Kanye (and the rest of us, actually) might do well to head the words of Proverbs 12:15: “The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.”

What would drive a boy so young to such brutal crimes? *** Weirdo family member Shaylynn Hayworth describes the haunted house she lived in as a child, and the ghostly occurrences that took place in her bedroom at night. *** When you sit down to a good ghost story, you expect horrors, terrifying encounters, frightening situations… but not all ghosts are malevolent. In fact, some appear to take solace from beyond the grave by reaching out to those still living to help them, even rescue someone or save a mortal’s life. *** Bugs. Spiders. All manner of creepy crawlies raise goosebumps for many. But even those who have no natural fear of insects might run in terror if they see one the size of a human being.

“FAKE FAITH” (or “Will The Real True Christian Please Stand Up”) #ChurchOfTheUndead

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend “Church of the Undead” to your friends, family, and co-workers! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: The reason I’ve titled this week’s message “FAKE FAITH” (or “Will The Real True Christian Please Stand Up”) is because I think many Christians either believe they are walking the right path – and are not… or are walking the right path, but are continually doubting themselves. We need to learn (and I’m talking to myself here as well) to learn how to maintain a genuine walk of faith.

Sometimes they are kind towards humans, even assisting them if in distress, or giving gifts. But some consider them lustful and evil, and still others claim they are the risen dead of brutally killed women. And there are reports of them being seen even today. We’ll look at the history and lore of mermaids. (Mythical Mermaids) *** For years, Country singer Johnny Horton told friends of a premonition he couldn't shake. A premonition of his own death. Not just THAT he would be killed… but HOW. And he was eerily accurate. And that wasn’t the end of his tragic story. (The Last Ride of Johnny Horton) *** Camping can be an amazing experience, especially when with friends or family. But even surrounded by those you love, when it gets dark, the wilderness gets creepy. Was that just an animal in the woods you heard, or something more? Was that blur you just saw a trick of the light or is there really something circling your campsite? I’ll share some true stories of campers who experienced much more than what they bargained for.

“THERE IS NOWHERE TO RUN IN THE WOODS” - True Stories of Terror in the Wilderness! #WeirdDarkness

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: People who live and work in remote areas know that sometimes too much quiet can make your mind race. However, some experiences stick with people long after they occur because of the degree of creepiness. On Reddit, plenty of people who live in rural areas or make their livelihood there, share their scary stories for the rest of us to freak out over. We know that often strange people linger around woods, parks, and other desolate areas. And we have all heard plenty of the kind of creepy stories that backpackers experience. However, in this episode, the stories are more than a little unpleasant, because the people who suffered them weren't just out and about anywhere; they were at their homes, or doing their jobs. Imagine living in the woods, and looking up from your bathtub to see a face looking back at you. Or imagine you are working as a forest ranger and come across a thumb nailed to a tree. Tonight I will share some of the terrifying real-life stories, stories that are the stuff of nightmares.TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…Find a full or partial transcript at the bottom of this blog post: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/7175MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind all my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACT“Church of the Undead” podcast: http://TheChurchOfTheUndead.comSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“Terrors of People Living In Remote Areas” by Matthew Lavelle: http://bit.ly/2Y5j1r2 “Park Ranger Scares” by Rosa Pasquarella: http://bit.ly/2xNbZZ6 “Horrifying Backpacker Stories” by Jen Lennon: http://bit.ly/2LXcfNs Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: You may think that a ghost referred to as ‘Humpty Doo’ might be fun-loving and perhaps even a little goofy. However, Humpty Doo is an Australian slang term that means everything is being turned upside down...and, fittingly, it is also the name of the town where some bizarre poltergeist events took place. (The Humpty-Doo Poltergeist) *** 
We are all familiar with humans’ desire to fly. There are many legends about flying horses in various parts of the world, and they all have common characteristics that make them difficult to dismiss as only aviation dreams of the ancient people. Do some myths and legends reveal ancient people had sufficient technical knowledge to produce sophisticated flying machines? (Ancient Mechanical Flying Horses) *** A man in China claims to have been abducted by aliens not just once… not just twice… but three times. But will you believe his story after hearing the details? (Flying on an Alien’s Back) *** There’s an odd grave marker at Riverside Cemetery in Wahpeton, North Dakota – and an odd story that goes along with it. I’ll tell you about the strange obelisk draped in rope and chains. (The Wahpeton Circus Grave) *** Those who walk along the wooded Hinds Road in Gadsden, Alabama should be wary, for there is a legend that residing there is a witch who sold her soul to the devil.

Antarctica may not be the place most people associate with ancient history, but this remarkable continent still holds many secrets. This virtually uninhabited, ice-covered landmass seems to offer little evidence of once being home to ancient civilizations. However, we do not know what is hidden beneath the thick ice, or do we? Why did the Nazis launch an expensive expedition to the South Pole in 1938? Could there be an ancient lost city under the ice of the Antarctic? What are the mysterious high-energy particles detected coming up from under the ice? And what did a group of researchers come across that they to this day can’t explain in simple scientific terms? And what of the numerous phantoms and specters claimed to have been seen on the ice and in the waters of the Antarctic? And what about the ice that’s bleeding? Coming up in this episode of Weird Darkness, we travel to the Antarctic – onto it, over it, and under it… and find some strange, and often terrifying things during the trip!TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…Find a full or partial transcript at the bottom of this blog post: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/7154MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind all my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACT“Church of the Undead” podcast: http://TheChurchOfTheUndead.comSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“Antarctica Strangeness” by Ellen Lloyd for Ancient Pages: https://tinyurl.com/y5unjlwe, https://tinyurl.com/y494goxn, https://tinyurl.com/y4q2w754 “Ghostly Shivers in Antarctica” by Erin McCann for Ranker: https://tinyurl.com/y2rxprvw “Antarctic Oddities” from Wayfair Travel: https://tinyurl.com/yxrjd4zv Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

(The Cursed Car That Started WW1) *** The radio station is officially known as “MDZhB” in Russia. It’s been continually broadcasting since 1982. And no one knows why.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Having a conversation with someone nowadays you don’t agree with - about anything - is a risky thing to do, no matter what the subject. It’s like putting together two things that don’t go together and asking them to work in unison – like trying to ice skate on rollerblades. Which, come to think of it, would make an awesome YouTube video – but then you’d scroll down to the comments and we’d be right back to everybody arguing about whether or not the idea was funny or just stupid. Because we can’t seem to have a civil conversation on diddlysquat it seems.

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: It has been scientifically proven that we can truly be scared to death – but some of the situations of people dying of fright might surprise you. We’ll look at a few newspaper headlines and stories from the past where people were deemed to be scared to death. (Incidents of Death By Fright) *** The tragic death of 11-year-old Darius Flinders could quite possibly be one of the strangest deaths ever recorded. It wouldn’t seem so at first, but it gets that way as the possible explanations come forth. (The Strange Death of Darius N. Flinders) *** Last month a group of disgruntled TikTok witches reportedly got together and combined their online powers to cast a negative spell on the moon. Not a sentence I thought I’d ever read aloud, but that’s just the kind of year we’re having, isn’t it? (Disgruntled Witches Curse the Moon) *** Weirdo family member Chris Harrell feels something hop onto the end of his bed… and it wasn’t his dog. (Zombie Paralysis) *** Philadelphian Dorothy Cooper Forstein appeared to be happily married, comfortably well-to-do, a loving mother, and well-liked. She was, in short, one of the last people anyone would imagine as a victim of one of the creepiest disappearances in American history. (The Disappearance of Dorothy Forstein) *** Allan Pinkerton started the nation's first P.I. firm, saved Abraham Lincoln's life, and led Union spies behind Confederate lines during the Civil War. We’ll look at the formation of the Pinkerton Agency. (America’s First Private Eyes)

And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: "It was a terrible sight… I have seen horrible sights, but never anything like this.” Those were the words of the local undertaker after seeing the results of a triple murder laying before him in 1932 Pennsylvania. (The Axe Murders of Lykens) *** Have you heard of the poor girl who was bullied and pushed down into a sewer by those whom she thought were her friends? I’ll tell you the story. And while this episode is not a creepypasta episode, so all the stories are supposed to be non-fiction, that is… true, I will be sharing this urban legend anyway – because when it comes to urban legends, sometimes it’s best to err on the side of caution and simply assume they are true. (The Urban Legend of Carmen Winstead) *** A gypsy once told Leonarda that all of her children would die before her. A different fortuneteller told her that she faced either a future in prison or in a criminal asylum. And the reason she gave for becoming a serial killer is something you’d hear out of a bad direct-to-video horror film. And that’s a tiny sample of this woman’s insanely dark life – which began even before her birth. (The Woman Who Made Soap) *** Ireland’s Loftus Hall is considered by many to be the most haunted location on all the Emerald Isle. But the most infamous story of Loftus Hall begins not with terror, but with romance… with a beautiful young girl falling madly in love with… the devil. (The Girl Who Fell In Love With The Devil) *** Weirdo Family member Brad Hicks describes the experience as “cool… and creepy as hell”. We’ll tell you his story.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Many years before Adolph Hitler and Germany’s Nazis created Auschwitz, there was another concentration camp that experienced deaths in tens of thousands. But this encampment of turpitude wasn’t located in Germany – or anywhere near Europe. It was located in the land of the free… the home of the brave. The USA. (The Devil’s Punchbowl) *** Several people have returned from their near-death experiences reporting they were briefly in the fiery pits of hell. Is there any truth to their claims? (They Escaped Hell’s Clutches) *** Have you ever seen what appears to be a shadow person or dark figure (stationary or moving) with your own eyes, close up or far away, ​maybe even in your peripheral vision or dream state? Perhaps you have felt the sensation of someone standing behind you and then you turn around but no one was there? What is it that you are seeing when this happens? (Who Are The Shadow People?) *** She looms large in the annals of American crime lore. A romantic relationship gone awry and troubles at home could explain why many still believe Lizzie Borden killed her parents.

(Paranormal Magnet Man) *** A truck-driver was not prepared for what he experienced one summer night at a tiny truck stop in the middle of nowhere... hardly the place where one would expect a ghost… if that's what it even was. (Phantom of the Truck Stop) *** No animal had ever made such sounds. Neither the lions of East Africa nor the angry bulls. At times, it sounded like a veritable herd of wild beasts orchestrated by Satan had formed a hellish choir. And that was only a small part of the demonic possession of a girl named Clara Germana Cele. (Demonic Possession In South Africa) *** Weirdo family member Cass tells her story of a disturbing dream, a sick friend, and the temptation to sell her soul in order to save her. (El Diablo) *** Megaladon… a shark several times larger than a great white. For our sake, it’s a good thing it’s extinct… or is it? Some pretty powerful sightings have been reported recently. (Real Sightings of Megaladon) *** In 2016, there was something of a folk panic in Yorkshire, northern England, following reported sightings of an eight-foot werewolf with a very human face.

But it turns out everybody was wrong. (A Cold Case Finally Solved… Then Unsolved) *** If you take State Route 375 through Nevada you will pass by the infamous Area-51. But of course they are not going to let you in, even if you ask nicely. But State Route 375 isn’t called the Extraterrestrial Highway just because of one area you can’t visit – there’s a lot more to it than that. (The 98-Mile Extraterrestrial Highway) *** Hikers sometimes get lost in the woods, as do children of course. But those on bikes almost never disappear; but there is one tragic case of a fat tire rider who couldn’t be found. (The Vanished Mountain Biker) *** Chlorosis was a frequently diagnosed disease during the 19th century that gave the skin of the afflicted a greenish tinge. As a cure, doctors told young women to get married and reproduce. As you can probably surmise, the cure was not in the least bit effective. (The Girls Who Turned Green) *** In 1910 two witnesses see a pair of lights that transform into radiant beings with “human form.” You might dismiss the report as misidentification of ball lightning or some other natural explanation – but in 1952 those radiant humanoid beings of light were seen again!

“THE DEADLIEST AND MOST HAUNTED ROAD IN BRITAIN” and More Strange and True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: It’s a stretch of road that only opened in 1988 to connect two existing roads, but it is known for being one of the deadliest roads in all of Britain… and one of the most haunted places in the world. The official designation is the A616… but most people know it as the Stocksbridge Bypass. (The Deadly Stocksbridge Bypass) *** 
Experiencing something strange is one thing. Experiencing two strange things in two different places might be called a coincidence. But when you experience three strange things in three different places, as Chet Guthrie did – you have to wonder if maybe the weirdness if following you around. (Three Events In Three Places of Really Weird Happenings) *** The Georgian Britains were obsessed with clean air, which was not surprising… because there was practically no clean air to obsess about. Even less-so in and around the cemeteries. (The Stench of Georgian Graveyards) *** A woman typically carries a baby for nine months before pregnancy. Sometimes a bit longer, sometimes a bit shorter, but that’s the average. Technology has made it possible for the baby to be born much sooner if complications were to arise, and still survive to be a healthy child. But we might have a new record on shortest pregnancy. One woman in Indonesia is claiming she gave birth after being pregnant for only one hour. (The One Hour Pregnancy) *** Heavy fog is commonplace in London, and in 1952 one particular fog rolled in for a full five days, hovering over the city. But when it finally dissipated, over 12,000 Londoners lay dead. (The Deadly Fog of 1952) *** A borrowed gun, romantically linked cousins, and a rigged jury – all the makings of a great murder trial in 1887 New Jersey. (A Mount Holly Tragedy) *** Here’s an idea on how to fight the black plague… throat lozenges… made from toad vomit! Hey, it was good enough for Isaac Newton! It was his own recipe!

And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Elves – they are portrayed as helpful and joyous when helping a shoemaker, or a jolly old man with a white beard at the north pole. But they are portrayed as evil in some other cultures – even claimed to be in league with the devil himself. And what do they have to do with Cain and Abel? We’ll look at the history of elves. (A History of Elves) *** There was a struggle, one of the men fell through a window to the street below, breaking his neck. A case that practically solved itself according to police. That is… until they began questioning those involved. Then it began to get very murky, and a bit bizarre. (The Strange Death of Thomas Farrant) *** Do you believe in vampires? If you are thinking of the undead, immortal, blood-sucking creatures of the night who speak with a Hungarian accent, then probably not. Or if you are thinking of the kind of vampires with pale skin and mussed hair that sparkle, then definitely not. But that doesn’t mean that vampires don’t exist. They in fact do roam the earth in human form, and I’ll tell you about them. (Are Vampires Real?) *** It’s the story of two Georges, one with his father’s name and one with not quite his father’s name, one legitimate, one illegitimate – with the latter being very good with elephants. I’ll tell you the odd life story of George Nyleve. (The Strange Story of George Nyleve) *** “Be quiet and give me the money in the cash drawer… This gun talks.” And with those words began a string of bank robberies conducted not by a gang of outlaws, or even a couple of bad men… but by one little old lady.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Want to live on the cheap in Tokyo, Japan? It’s easy to do – if you don’t mind living with a ghost or two. (Tokyo Ghosts) *** Cryptozoologists are abuzz right now about recent sightings of a creature seen in the lakes of Connemara in Ireland. The creature is rumored to be up to 30 feet long, with a mane of hair running along its back. Is it a yet undiscovered species of fish? A giant eel? A cousin to the Loch Ness monster in Scotland – or even perhaps a living dinosaur? No one has yet been able to answer the question – but this August, monster hunters from around the globe are coming together in Ireland to try and find answers. (The Giant Eels of Connemara) *** High school teacher Pamela Smart fell in love. Unfortunately, she fell in love with a 15-year-old student… and that is only the beginning of this horrible story.

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: The scientist Isaac Newton is best known for his being the first to create the theory of gravity. But now we’ve learned it is very possible that would never have happened had this scientist not had a bit of sorcerer in him as well. (Ghosts, Gravity, and Isaac Newton) *** 
On Easter Sunday, 1475, in the city of Trent, a 2-year-old boy named Simon was found dead. This one act triggered a wave of anti-Semitism that wiped out a community of Jewish males and threatened the power of a pope. All from the death of one child. (History’s Most Dangerous Toddler) *** "I am innocent, that mark of mine will NEVER be wiped out. It will remain forever to shame the county for hanging an innocent man…. " Alexander Campbell said these words on June 21, 1877 shortly before his hanging. And true to his word, the handprint he left behind refuses to fade away – no matter how hard people try to remove it. (The Reappearing Handprint) *** A century ago, in July 1920, The Illustrated Police News, ran a single story on its front page, complete with a drawing of a man lying on top of a woman, both surrounded in blood. But even more disturbing – a young boy, very much alive, and apparently watching the whole thing. (The Little Boy Who Watched His Parents Die) *** It took a while before the first woman to be hanged would take place in the USA – but in 1778 it finally happened. And her name was Bathsheba Spooner.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Here in 2020 it feels like our world is imploding doesn’t it? Race riots, a worldwide pandemic, an incredibly difficult economy with more job losses than we’ve seen since the Great Depression, and… oh yeah… let’s not forget murder hornets. But what if all this chaos has the capacity for good? What if, contrary to what our fretful brains tell us, God is still in control and is, even now, using everything I just listed, and everything else that seems to be going wrong in our world, for our good and to further His kingdom? Yes, our world has gone crazy – but maybe that’s good for God’s people.

Ron Hubbard, was so fascinated by the occult, he believed he was the actual devil himself… and was even upset when his own son turned out to not be the antichrist. (The Devil L. Ron Hubbard) *** Scientology is already scary and mysterious – which may not be surprising once you learn how much black magic had to do with its creation.

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Jodi Arias murdered her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. She’s now in prison – and says she loves it there. (The Murderess Who Loves Life in Prison) *** Bioluminescence is a fascinating trait, giving certain animals the ability to create their own light – literally glowing in the dark. The phenomenon has also been seen in humans, but only with special optics – it’s not visible to the naked eye. Except, that is, for a handful of very rare and unexplainable cases – one in which a woman’s breasts would glow. (The Strange Case of the Woman With Glowing Breasts) *** Vampires are everywhere – television, film, graphic novels, video games, books, and more cosplay than you can sink your teeth into. While our interest in blood-sucking creatures of the night is ubiquitous, it is by no means new. Before vampires sparkled in the sun, spoke in a Hungarian accent, or even crossed the mind of Bram Stoker, they’ve been terrorizing young and old alike… and have been doing so for almost a thousand years. But while we see the fanged fiends as entertainment, those before us saw them as a very real and evil danger. (Medieval Vampires) *** They seem to fall directly from the above – stones, falling upon unsuspecting people – sometimes by the dozens – and sometimes not from the sky, but from their own home’s ceiling. Who or what is throwing stones – and how?

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: A family moves into a home and almost immediately begins to experience escalating supernatural activity – which then introduces a sinister, dark menacing entity. (The Black Monk) *** Urban legends are typically dark, strange stories which for the most part are only that – legend. Harmless tales meant to frighten the listener with no more repercussions than some goose bumps and perhaps a restless night of trying to sleep. But some legends are based on truth – and those are the ones that truly make our skin crawl and our faces turn white. (Urban Legends Which Are Actually True) *** Why would a U.S. state vote to have an official state demon? It really happened – and stories about the Jersey Devil continue to this day. We’ll look at the history and horrors of this bizarre cryptid and see if it’s more than urban legend. (Legend of the Jersey Devil) *** Delano, California is a small, uninteresting town that many may think twice before visiting. East of this town is an equally dreary road known as Browning Road. If you’re a paranormal enthusiast, you know that this is one road you shouldn’t dare travel alone. (Hitchhiking Ghost of Delano) *** A woman shares her horrifying true story of an evil entity she encountered on Browning Road in Delano, California. (Evil Walks Browning Road) *** In the summer of 2014 a series of UFOs were being reported by Navy pilots – the most elite of our airborne military. Not only were the sightings becoming more frequent – they would last up to 12-hours at a time. (Navy Pilots Report UFOs)

“THE HAUNTER OF THE RING” Classic Horror Story! #WeirdDarkness
Jul 17 2020 40 mins  
Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: A classic horror story from 1934 written by American writer Robert E. Howard. “The Haunter of the Ring” was first published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales in the June 1934 issue. Howard earned $60 for this publication… equal to just over $1,100 today. This story was set in the modern age of 1934. The short story belonged to the universe of the Cthulhu Mythos, so while it may not have been written by H.P. Lovecraft, it was certainly inspired by him. Bizarrely, at the same time, it is also a part of the Conan the Barbarian universe as it includes a relic from the Hyborian Age of the Conan the Barbarian stories, the ring of Thoth-Amon.

It’s rare – but they do decide to to make their presence known in the real world on occasion. (Homicidal Poltergeists) *** 
A dead chicken was found beside the granary, next to a large print on the ground of an animal no one could identify. That was almost a year ago when sightings of a strange creature began on the Restayno family’s property. (The Argentina Entity) *** You’ve heard her story on national news – the hiker, lost in the wilderness of Hawaii for seventeen days. Fortunately she was found alive and relatively unharmed. But the mainstream news outlets are leaving out one very eerie part of Amanda Eller’s story. (Ghostly Voice Causes Hiker To Get Lost) *** Heaven and Hell… are these just ideas in a book, or are they real places? And is it true, as some believe, that Hell is below us, in the center of the Earth? (Caught Between Heaven And Hell) *** A paranormal investigator stumbles upon an abandoned property he has never seen before – and even this seasoned ghost hunter was scared out of his wits by what happened there.

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend “Church of the Undead” to your friends, family, and co-workers! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: One commentator says that if you say “Jesus” the Spanish way it sounds like “Hey Zeus.” - personally, I remember hearing that while watching “Die Hard With a Vengeance.” This amusing fact is offered by conspiracy theorists as “proof” that the name of our Savior actually means “Hail Zeus.” As outlandish as this might sound, the writer explains, proponents of this belief seem to suggest that Jesus is Zeus.

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family!

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Eastern State hospital was originally known as the Public Hospital for Persons of Insane and Disordered Minds, built in 1773. It was America’s first mental asylum – and the horrors in the minds of its patients couldn’t compare to the horrors of the asylum itself. (The Hauntings of Eastern State Mental Asylum) *** 
Weirdo family member Krysta Lee shares a personal encounter with a spirit in her bathroom. (Cool Hand On My Shoulder) *** Belief in witches, hexes, and powerful spirits was prevalent in the 19th century, and into the 20th century. In fact, in rural areas of Pennsylvania, it might still be practiced today. So it’s the perfect setting for a murder involving curses, and a local witch. (The Witch of Ringtown) *** Parking tickets, floppy disks and escaped victims – these helped catch a handful of serial murderers who would likely have never been caught otherwise. (When Killers Capture Themselves) *** It’s been called a freak of nature, as weird as it is beautiful. Seen here are terrifying flying entities, giant skeletons, and even the legendary Bigfoot. We’ll look at the mysterious, strange, and dangerous Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia.

If you ever missed death by an inch, and you believe you had a little help, you may be one of many people with guardian angel stories. Even for nonbelievers, a brush with real guardian angels is an encounter with the uncanny, proof of entities in the world beyond your line of sight. That's why real guardian angel stories, such as the ones I will share in this episode, are so creepy; even if it ends as a positive experience, it leaves you with a lot of lingering questions. Most people believe real guardian angels protect people from harm, but that doesn't make them less unnerving. After all, if angels truly are real, then so are the demonic forces they seek to protect people from.

“THE REAL SHARK ATTACKS BEHIND ‘JAWS’” and More True SHARK Stories! #WeirdDarkness

Please share a link to this episode in all of your social media to help enlarge our Weirdo family! And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: 
In June of 1975 we were exposed to one of the scariest movies ever made. For this podcaster, it’s just not Independence Day until I watch it – and you still can’t get me to swim in the ocean. We’ll look at what made ‘Jaws’ so successful… and so frightening. We’ll also look at the true story of a string of shark attacks in 1916 that inspired the novel and the film. And while 1975’s ‘Jaws’ was inspired by a series of shark attacks but greatly fictionalized, the film ‘Open Water’ from 2003 is based on a very real and terrifying story. But the truth behind the movie is a dark mystery that goes way beyond the horror of what you see in the film. We’ll look at several other real shark attacks that are almost too incredible to believe, and also try to answer the question as to why shark attacks don’t happen more often as you would expect them to, seeing as humans should be easy pickings.TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…Find a full or partial transcript at the bottom of this blog post: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/6801SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACTSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“The True Darkness of Open Water” by Erin McCann for Ranker: https://tinyurl.com/y8vaqgra “The Real-Life Inspiration for ‘Jaws’” by Christopher Klein for History: https://tinyurl.com/yb5s35xc “The Horror of ‘Jaws’” by Jackie Flynn Mogensen for Mother Jones: https://tinyurl.com/y2mxf8us, Andrew Housman for ScreenRant: https://tinyurl.com/yae8ohh6, Meagan Navarro for Bloody Disgusting: https://tinyurl.com/y7p8q9lw, Tim Donnelly for the New York Post: https://tinyurl.com/y9twrcc7, and Rachel Paige for Hello Giggles: https://tinyurl.com/ycdlb6je“Real Shark Attacks” by Charles W.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Scrying is the act of gazing into a reflective or translucent object to open your intuition. This supposedly allows the scryer to gain information they may not have access to normally inside their conscious mind. Often the object used for this is the often seen, but often misunderstood crystal ball. (Little Known Secrets Of The Crystal Ball) *** 
Five hundred years ago, Europe saw its first rhinoceros in more than a thousand years. Well, sort of. In reality, it was an accidental fake. (Dürer's Rhinoceros) *** A physics paper proposes neither you nor the world around you are real. If that’s true, then does that mean you’re not actually listening to this podcast? (What If I Only Think I’m Real?) *** When it comes to mythical monsters, the dragon seems to have never lost its celebrity. Dragons have always been popular – not just on multi-million-dollar cable channels and blockbuster movies, but in games, posters, artwork, and tales young and old, generation over generation, in just about every culture. (Dragons and Dragon Kings) *** An extra-marital affair in 1812 resulted in a pregnancy, and a murder. And evidence of the term “sins of the father” also comes into play. (A Most Horrible Murder in Hankelow) *** From "The Beast" to "The Red Ripper" to "The Candy Man," child murderers might be the most terrifying people to ever walk the Earth. We’ll look at a few serial killers who thought nothing of murdering the most innocent of humanity.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Like many desolate places, the Arctic has its share of ghost stories and haunted legends floating around the frigid, wild areas of its domain. It might be the frights rather than the cold that gives you goosebumps. (Ghostly Shivers of the Arctic Circle) *** Weirdo family member Joy Cruz remembers something her mother told her as a child… and it quite possibly saved her soul. (I’ve Seen The Devil) *** You never know what might be lurking just out of sight – in the shadows, behind a door. I’ll share a few true stories that might make you double-check the locks at night and check the closet before going to bed. (Never Trust The Dark) *** A 5-year-old boy having the time of his life at a carnival suddenly goes missing – and when found later there is no evidence whatsoever as to how he got where he was, who took him there, or what happened to him before he was found. (The Disturbing Case of Little Stephen McKerron) *** When you think of the Salem Witch Trials, you typically think of women being burned at the stake, innocently accused of witchcraft. There are two incorrect assumption about that mental picture. First, most of the accused were hung, and none have been truly verified to be burned alive. And second, sorcery and Satan worship were not seen to be bound by gender, and so either a man, woman, boy, or girl could be a witch. And one of those unfortunate men was Giles Corey – but his punishment went beyond the norm, and into the gruesome.

Stephanie Scissom writes of when a circus unexpectedly arrived in a small city, and along with the fun, merriment and laughter, there was a dark, dreary, and dangerous element. It’s “When The Circus Came to Town.” And, an author who goes by the alias 5yn brings a story of what happened on the set of History’s show, “Alone” - something that they covered up. It’s no wonder he’s writing under an assumed name. The story is simply called, “Alone.”TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…(Sorry, no transcripts are available for this episode, but links to the text version of both stories narrated in this episode can be found in the story credits below.)MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE…Weird Darkness “AfterWORD” = “God, Ghosts and Aliens”: https://youtu.be/QV7y1OqAEAU SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACTSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“When The Circus Came to Town” by Stephanie Scissom: https://tinyurl.com/y7slhth9 “Alone” by 5yn: https://tinyurl.com/ybcllfpnWeird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

And please recommend Weird Darkness to your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime! Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: “The devil made me do it.” It’s an excuse that has been used so often by so many that it has lost its meaning, and its effectiveness. So only a fool or a madman would commit a horrible act and then try to blame it on the devil or a demon… unless, of course, that person truly believes that is exactly what happened to them. (A Demon Made Me Do It) *** The little Norwegian village of Bærum Verk still stands as an old foundry settlement, and is an active place, both as a place to work, and as a place to live – and as a place to keep living even after you’re dead. (The Most Haunted Village in Norway) *** When John and Eva were married they told their relatives that they planned to honeymoon on the Atlantic coast, but John had another plan, and it would not be his last deception. But it would be the first act in what ended up being a mystery that has still gone unsolved to this day. (The Lawrenceburg Shanty-Boat Mystery) *** There are more than a few stories from upright citizens around the world who claim to have seen tiny humans. I’m not talking about the diminutive human beings we used to classify as dwarves or midgets until we became more enlightened. I’m talking about short, maybe two-foot tall, perfectly proportioned people.

Imagine a young mother coming home late one night after a trip to the ER for a minor illness. The next day she is missing. That is just the beginning of the strange and unsettling case of Charlotte Pollis. (The Disappearance of Charlotte Pollis) *** There was a time when people would get married in cemeteries – not because they were goth or because they loved the macabre surroundings, but because they felt it would keep them from getting sick. (Plague Weddings) *** The five pointed star is ubiquitous. We learn to draw it in grade school, teachers draw it on our test papers to show we’ve done a good job – but turn the star upside down and suddenly it becomes mysterious, and strange… it become a pentagram. Why does the pentagram hold so much power over some people? And what are the secrets it holds? (Secrets of the Pentagram) *** It’s a supernatural creature that appears at night to travelers. If you see a white one, it is there to protect you from harm and help you along your journey. If you see a black one, it is there to kill you.

But if you believe what fighter pilot George F. Gorman says, you’ll believe there are some giant holes in the U.S. Government’s story. Because Gorman ended up in an aerial battle with one of those so-called “weather balloons”. (The Gorman Dogfight) *** A passerby found scraps of paper on the ground, implicating that one of the areas most prominent families was harboring a secret – that the husband had his own wife imprisoned in their own home for months on end – unable to leave her own bedroom. But that was just the beginning of the story. (Imprisoned In Her Own Room By Her Husband) *** In the wilds of Africa it is said there is a man-like creature, human in every way aside from one – the being has no head. (Beware The Headless Blemmy) *** The most famous being the Grim Reaper, dark hooded entities seems to be relatively common in the reports of ghost-like beings. They can be intimidating, foreboding, and downright terrifying. One man’s experience didn’t stop with only one encounter – they haven’t stopped at all. (The Black Hooded Figure That Haunts Me) *** A couple have a fight, one of them leaves the home to cool off. It’s something that happens every day in every town and city. It’s simply how some couples have to work through things. But in one case, 32 years later, the woman who left to cool off has yet to return, and her family is still waiting.

If you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: It’s Creepypasta Thursday! And I thought I’d bring back a classic from the podcast. I often get comments on YouTube, on Facebook, or receive an email saying that someone liked a certain episode for this reason or that. Usually it’s a comment about how creepy or scary a specific story was, or it’s someone sharing an incident that happened to them that was similar. Or more often than not, just a note of encouragement to thank me for the podcast (which I do love getting, by the way). But very few episodes have garnered the amount of positive feedback that “I Driver For Cerber” has. So for those of you who have not heard it before, or for those of you who loved it the first time and wouldn’t mind another go-around, I proudly present, “I Drive For Cerber” by Mofucious.TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…(Sorry, no transcript is available for this episode.)SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACTSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“I Drive For Cerber” by Mofucious: https://www.creepypasta.com/i-drive-for-cerber/ Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

If you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: A child walking into their parent’s room in the middle of the night is something every parent who has ever had a child has experienced on multiple occasions – but one parent’s experience ended with a dark twist. (The Child Not Really There) *** Georgette Bauerdorf was a young socialite with a grand future – when her life was cut short in the dead of the night. Her screams went unanswered, and her murder became a mystery. And Georgette’s murder remains unsolved almost 80 years later. (The Unsolved Murder of Georgette Bauerdorf) *** The bat is a mysterious creature. To some, such as the Chinese, it is considered a symbol of luck. To others such as the Europeans and Americans, it is seen as something scary. And of course horror films see it as the flying form of Bela Lugosi. But the Mayans might have the strangest, or maybe coolest – depending on your outlook – opinion on the bat; they believe it is the representation of a deadly vampire god. (Camazotz: The Death Bat Vampire God) *** Helen Knabe's life was remarkable, in the best sense of the word. Unfortunately, her death was also remarkable, but in the worst possible way.
 (The Deadly House Call) *** Blanche Monnier was kept locked in her bedroom for a quarter of a century. When finally rescued she looked inhuman. What her mother did to her was inhumane. (Locked In Her Room For 25 Years) *** An historian has come forward saying that his father, the former Commander of White Sands Missile Range in the 1940s, analyzed some of the material found at the UFO crash site at Roswell. I’ll tell you what he found.(Navy Captain Tested Roswell UFO Debris) *** The lynching of Sheriff Henry Plummer poses one of the most haunting mysteries of the Old West. But I’ll share some of the details that not everyone has heard about this grim 1863 incident.

After telling his fellow troops that he was going out for a drink he never came back – and was never heard from again, by anyone. (The Vanishing Lieutenant and the Disappearing Cadet) *** Final Destination is a massive franchise with numerous films, novels, and comic books in the universe it has created. Fortunately it’s all from the minds of horror fiction authors. Or is it? There are real cases where some narrowly escaped death, only for death to catch up to them soon thereafter. Very soon.

“TO HELL AND BACK” and More Terrifying True Tales! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: What is it truly like in hell? Of course the only way to find out is to die – and that’s a bit extreme if you are just simply curious about the subject. Especially if you find yourself on the wrong side of the faith issue and have to spend an eternity in the “bad place”. But there are some who have reached the edge of life, teetering on the precipice of death, and believe they have experienced the fires of hell, and they were somehow able to return to tell us of their experience. (To Hell and Back) *** Most people are already familiar with the story of the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the White House, but he is not lonely, not by far. There are many who have claimed to have seen, heard, and even felt ghosts while in the White House… even in the Oval Office itself. (Ghosts of the Oval Office) *** Do you sometimes experience visions of future events? You have dreams and sometimes they come true later? What should you do if you are having realistic premonitions? (Handling Your Premonitions) *** Jane Cakebread loved her liquor… a lot. How deep was that love? Well, she was arrested hundreds of times and convicted an amazing 281 times for drunkenness. (The Drunkest Woman In The World) *** In olden times, pure and reliable water was the staff of life – so a well with fresh water was a godsend. But what if that well is haunted? (The Haunted Holy Well) *** Growing up together as next door neighbors, a boy has a crush on a beautiful young girl – but the crush turns into obsession, and that obsession lead to the end of two lives. (In Love With The Girl Next Door)

Like an episode of the Twilight Zone, a Qantas flight had to make an emergency landing when a hole appeared seemingly out of nowhere, puncturing in the fuselage and causing the cabin to suddenly lose pressure. Could it truly be possible that gremlins are to blame? (Gremlins On The Attack) *** We’ll also hear from a former member of the Royal Air Force with his own thoughts and research about gremlins. (The Gremlin Question) *** On December 13, 1932, Edna Murray made her escape from the Women’s state penitentiary at Jefferson City, Missouri. The “Kissing Bandit” had escaped again… for the third time. (Escape of the Kissing Bandit) *** A college student reads about how his college is haunted – which might explain the strange goings-on in his dorm room. (Invisible Stalker) *** They worked in great secrecy. Their goal was to create a society without a King and Church. They were the Illuminati… but do they still exist? (Secret Society of the Illuminati) *** Greensboro student Maddie thought her apartment might be haunted when clothes vanished and noises came out of nowhere. The truth was even more terrifying. (Closet Criminal) *** Is it possible that OJ Simpson’s son Jason was the true killer of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown? (O.J. Simpson: A Killer In The Family) *** After murdering his wife and attempting to kill his children, then unsuccessfully trying to kill himself, Henry Rathbone claimed it was all due to a curse he believed he brought onto himself – which began at the death of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. (The Assassination Curse) *** Is a modern-day wolf-man prowling the woods of central England? (Something Sinister at a Cemetery) *** What compelled young priests in training to commit suicide in Room 2 of Ireland’s national seminary? (The Ghost Room of Maynooth) *** An Oxford University professor claims aliens are already breeding with humans on earth – could he be right? (Are Aliens Breeding With Humans?) *** Is it possible that the Early Middle Ages, years 614-911 A.D. never existed? That’s the claim of an extremely controversial theory. (The Phantom Time Hypothesis) *** A man is convinced his Swedish grandmother continues to look in on him, even years after her death. (The Seventh Daughter of the Seventh Daughter)

A story that nearly ruined Lizzie Borden. (The Lizzy Borden Newspaper Hoax) *** In 1948, sightings of mysterious green lights in the skies of Los Alamos, New Mexico and the Sandia atomic-weapons laboratories and other sensitive military installations had the U.S. Government extremely worried.

“KILLER KIDS, MURDEROUS MINORS” and More Horrific True Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: As a listener of true crime podcasts, you likely are more than familiar with names like H.H. Holmes, Richard Ramirez, and Gary Ridgeway. But what happens when the serial killer hasn’t even reached adolescence? We’ll look at some chilling murders that were carried out by children, which will change the way you look at youthful adolescents from now on. (Killer Kids) *** Are there traits you can look for in a child that might indicate if they will become a killer later in life? We’ll look at three traits believed to be indicators. (Predicting a Killer) *** You can teach a dog to roll over and fetch. You can teach a cat to use the toilet. Lions and tigers have been trained to jump through hoops of fire to thrill spectators at circuses worldwide. And even a gorilla has been taught some basic sign language. But would you believe there was once a horse that could do arithmetic? (The Horse Who Could Do Math) *** William Stead was a newspaper editor and journalist in the 1890s. His beat wasn’t the fashion scene or stock market, nor was it the arts district or even politics. He covered the paranormal. And it wasn’t hard to come up with stories, because all he had to do was to call up someone from the underworld for an exclusive interview. (Words From Beyond The Grave) *** If you move into an old house, it always feels awkward at first. After a while though, it begins to feel like home. For some people, if the house is a bit older, perhaps that odd feeling of being watched never really goes away. But if your house was built 270 years ago, you probably should just assume you’ve got a spook or two already residing there before you sign the mortgage.

You’re cold, and if you’re not mistaken, you’re also naked. You try to get up and immediately bump your head, when you spread your arms your horrible suspicion is confirmed… you are enclosed in some type of box. A refrigerated box. Then you realize it… you’re in a morgue. But wait… aren’t you’re alive? How can this be? Even now in the 21st century, tales like this do happen – and they are just as terrifying as you imagine. I’ll share true stories of people waking up in the morgue.

But what normally would be a fascinating experience, became utterly horrifying when seemingly out of nowhere, straight from the blackened sky, came what sounded like a woman screaming… and screaming… and screaming. I’ll share the story and the terrifying audio.

Numerous calls, fifty in total, all reporting sighting a strange beast – half human, half wolf. Possibly female. What were the people of Mobile, Alabama witnessing? (The Wolf Woman of Mobile Alabama) *** You know someone is truly evil when their own children are warning the public about them while the parent is in prison. That’s exactly what the daughter of serial killer Shelly Knotek has been doing. (Serial Killer Landlady) *** Was U.S. President Abraham Lincoln’s mother actually killed by vampires? (Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) *** It began as a sharing of a water source between properties… then accusations of improper relations… and it escalated to murder in 1895 Indiana. But who killed the beautiful, young Clara Shanks? (The Wolf Creek Tragedy) *** Six young boys were out playing when suddenly a bolt of lightning came crashing down near them. That’s when they saw the tiny, strange-looking blue man. (Strange Tales of Little Blue Men) *** The loneliness of isolation during the mandated quarantine from the current pandemic can be stressful for some, torturous for others, and terrifying for some – particularly those who are forced to stay indoors in a home that is also haunted.

“WAKING THE DEAD” and More True and Macabre Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: I’m pretty sure that unless you were born of a virgin, died, and then rose from the grave three days later, no one has had any real success at bringing people back from the underworld. But that’s exactly what people who practice necromancy try to do – wake the dead. They can’t be successful at it though, can they? (Raising The Dead) *** The people of Japan have a myth of a terrible snake-like creature with death-dealing powers called a Tsuchinoko. But unlike many legends, there have been modern sightings of this bizarre cryptid. Is it real? If so, what could it be? (Is The Legendary Tsuchinoko Real?) *** At the age of only 14, George Stinney Jr. was the youngest person in history to be put to death in the electric chair. Then, seventy years later he was proven innocent. (The Execution of an Innocent) *** A snowy November day, a bus full of students, and an icy lake. It was about to become the day of the worst school-related accident in Washington state history. (School Bus Plunges To An Icy Death) *** They were cigar-shaped, glowed red and could turn on a dime. Which ruled out even the most sophisticated rockets of the time. What is it that World War II fighter pilots were seeing in the skies flying with them? (The UFOs of World War 2)

He had a few other superpowers as well! (The Man With The X-Ray Eyes) *** All families have their ups and downs. However, when you find a clan where an infanticide trial is arguably the least worst thing to happen to them, it’s safe to say you’ve found one very special household… the Mabbitt family.

(The Phantom Truck) *** Imagine opening up the newspaper and reading this paragraph: “If anyone doubts this story in the least… they are reliable men who would under no circumstances lend their names to an untruth.” Newspapers just do not stand by their sources this unwaveringly, at least not anymore… and especially if the subject of the article is a haunted house. (The Ghost Told Them To Move) *** Those who work nights are already in the creepy position of working what is called the “graveyard shift” - so you have to expect something to go wrong.

“HAPPY APRIL FEARS DAY!” #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: This episode was originally aired on April 1st, 2019. Many podcasts and YouTube channels today are taking advantage of the date on the calendar and playing practical jokes on their subscribers in celebration of All Fools Day. I admit, I was tempted to begin a story and then Rick-Roll you, but instead I thought it might be fun to bring some dark stories into today’s podcast that have a funny or amusing twist to them. Still creepy, but comical as well. I don’t believe any of these stories are true – but that doesn’t mean they’re not entertaining.TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…(Scroll to bottom of blog post): Sorry, transcripts are not always available for archive episodes.SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDO Visit the store: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/STORE Social media and contact info: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACT STORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Note: Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)All stories in this episode were gathered and rewritten by S.

However there are places on Earth that could be considered hell – no not Detroit or Wichita. We’re talking about actual places that look like the entrances to purgatory. And perhaps they really are. (Secret Doors to the Underworld) *** A king, a gossoon and a bear walked into a bar. No, this is not the first line of a joke, but a common occurrence in Potrero Hill in San Francisco, California, during the 1880s. The king was Frank McManus, the gossoon was Frank’s baseball-playing brother, Cornelius, and the bear was a large inebriated ursine. (King of the Irish Hill) *** Why are some people suddenly vigorous, alert, and feeling much better shortly before they pass away? It is something that has happened since time began, but medical experts are still baffled by it. (Terminal Lucidity Phenomenon) *** Two men were found dead in the bushes, beheaded… and emasculated. But that was just the beginning of the Mad Butcher’s killing spree. (The Cleveland Torso Murders) *** While many say the most haunted hotel is the one in Colorado that was used in the film “The Shining” - there is evidence that one in Eureka Springs, Arkansas deals with even more paranormal activity. (The Crescent Hotel) *** Seeing reptiles in Oklahoma isn’t all that uncommon – even dinosaur fossils are found in the state. But there have also been reports of something much stranger – a snake/human hybrid creature more terrifying than it sounds. (Oklahoma Snake Man)

“The Real Story Behind THE FUGITIVE”, and More True Eerie Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: (Dark Archives episode with stories from March 19-20, 2019) *** The case was one of the most famous – and controversial – of the 1950s and went on to inspire the TV show and film of “The Fugitive”, as well as Stephen King’s story and the film “The Shawshank Redemption”. It’s the true story of Dr. Sam Shepard. (The Real-Life Fugitive) *** It's bad enough when you have a scary, eerie experience, but it's even worse when nobody believes you, insisting that you're either lying or just imagining things. Whether you hear voices calling to you at night or come face-to-face with something that's not of this world, it is definitely better when at least one person will back you up, or else you might question your own sanity. (Why Won’t Anyone Believe Me?) *** A creepy true story from Weirdo family member Courtney Rondeau. (It Was The Light That Woke Me) *** What began as a robbery turned into something far more horrific. July 14, 1966, an inebriated robber stumbled into a Chicago townhouse and took the lives of eight young women. (The Brutality of Richard Speck) *** A woman explains away odd happenings in her home – until she can no longer come up with explanations. (The Ghost I Know) *** Was journalist Danny Casolaro murdered after uncovering a vast global conspiracy called the Octopus? (Hunting The Octopus) *** The Wendigo. It appears in numerous areas of pop culture, like the TV shows “Supernatural” and “The X Files”, the movie “Ravenous”, and games such as “Dungeons and Dragons”, along with video games like “Final Fantasy” and “Until Dawn”. But the Wendigo isn’t just a creature from someone’s imagination.(Wendigo)

Personally, I picture Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. While civilizations and groups such as these certainly did (and maybe still do) their share of brutal sacrificing, they are by no means the only ones that conducted death rituals. Some will most certainly surprise, and possibly disturb, you. (Sadistic Sacrificing of Souls) *** A shadow person is a humanoid figure that you perceive in a patch of shadow. Some believe that they are supernatural spirits or extra-dimensional beings. What are they? Paranormal researchers have a theory, neuroscientists have another theory. (Contact With a Shadow Man) *** An astronomy professor says we should begin focusing on space archaeology – starting with our own moon. Why? Well, he believes E.T. might have left a clue there of his existence. (Extraterrestrial Evidence on the Moon) *** And what if we were to discover there were aliens still living on the moon – and they were meddling in our affairs? How would you feel about that? Should extraterrestrials interfere in human affairs if they can help our society, or should we refuse that kind of leap in technology and medicine? (Should Aliens Interfere With Earthly Affairs?) *** Thousands of years ago, people were performing a form of surgery that involved boring holes through a person's skull. Why on earth would they do such a thing? (Trepanation: I Need That Like Another Hole In The Head)

It's fairly rare to come across a ghost story with a relatively happy ending--where the living are able to accommodate the dead, and even provide them with assistance. But one such story happened in 1957. (The Ashes and Ghost of Elizabeth Bullock) *** Imagine being born without arms or legs. How would you manage? How would you live your life? People have, of course, been born this way – but two very interesting men not only made the best of it they could – but they made the rest of the world take notice! (No Arms, No Legs, Lots of Everything Else) *** The bloodstain remains on the floor to this day—and several witnesses have claimed to see a black mist materialize from the spot and glide through the house. We’ll look at a haunted home in Pennsylvania that goes by the name Grumblethorpe. (Grumblethorpe) *** We’ve all had a trick of the light make it appear something was on the other side of a window, only for us to change angles and the image would disappear – but what if the image doesn’t, and you know it can’t be there? (Creepy Floaty Faced Thing) *** Witnesses say they have seen people vanish into thin air. Drivers and motorists saw a young woman suddenly materialize in front of their vehicles. There are some strange things being seen around Blue Bell Hill in Kent, United Kingdom. (Mysterious Sightings at Blue Bell Hill) *** Murdered in Montana in 1983, Marie Philbrick was killed in the days before DNA analysis. Bernard Pease Jr. was convicted of her murder, but was he really her killer? (The Murder Trial of Bernard Pease, Jr.) *** There was a time where being physically fit wasn’t just good for your heart health and good lungs – but also good for your head. If you could beat the executioner in a foot race, you could avoid the guillotine!

“HIGHWAY VANISHINGS DOWN UNDER” and More Bizarre But True Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: When Lottie Chettle identified herself to the court, and gave her occupation as “barber”, a rather astonishing thing happened. People laughed. Why? The story is a strange one! (The Victorian Female Barber in Court) *** Sometimes the sour attitude of a mother-in-law can not only break up a marriage, but it can lead to murder. (A Day of Blood) *** We’ll look at a murder that was described quite well in an editorial in Truth magazine saying: “There have been murders in the hot blood of passion, assassinations prompted by wrong, by jealousy, by greed of gain but this is none of these. It is simply the crime of a vile-tempered bilious wretch, far too many of whose like are still at large, perpetuated not only on a victim who had more case to feel aggrieved at them than he at her, but perpetuated with every suggestion of premeditation.” Why did William Sindram murder Catherine Crave? (Shot Down Remorselessly) *** There have been so many accidents and mysterious disappearances on one particular stretch of road in Australia that it has earned an ominous nickname… “The Highway of Death”. We’ll look at the infamous length of asphalt named Flinders Highway. (Highway Vanishings Down Under) *** UFO stories are a dime a dozen. Even stories of UFOs crashing have become humdrum for many. But what if I were to tell you that there was a UFO crash in Missouri that was so fantastic that a local pastor was asked to come and pray over the three dead alien bodies found at the crash site? (The Cape Girardeau UFO Crash) *** "What people sometimes don't get about science is that we often have phenomena that remain unexplained," said an astrophysicist at MIT. Turns out he was referring to unidentified flying objects.

(New York Charnel House) *** Kell’s Irish Pub in Seattle has a creepy vibe to it, even if the displays and decorations inside aren’t meant to be. Perhaps that’s because the building started its life as a massive mortuary. (The Beaux Arts Butterworth Building) *** Early one February morning in 1897, John Mars jumped out of bed from a sound sleep, and while the smell of breakfast cooking downstairs wafted up to the second level of the house, he inexplicably grabbed his pistol and went on a shooting spree of his own family. (The Act of a Mad Man) *** A four-year-old has a paranormal experience… and the man he grew into over 60 years later is still unsure of what happened to him. (The Lady Laughing In My Bedroom)

(The Man Who Created Criminal Profiling) *** Different peoples build their identity around different facets of their culture: the Italians around their food, the Greeks around their architecture, America around expanding waistlines. The Isle of Man, however, has pinned its identity today on low tax rates, motorcycle races and, oh yes… mermaids and fairies. (Catching Mermaids on Man) *** Would you be willing to eat your meals off the chest of a corpse, in the process, taking on their sins as your own? That’s the gruesome job of a sin eater – and there were people willing to do it even into twentieth-century. (Would You Become a Sin Eater?) *** Dr Richard Gallagher is a New York psychiatrist and a psychiatric professor. He has spent twenty-five years viewing exorcisms – and he says 'fallen angels' target the devout AND those who've meddled with the occult. He says it outright – being possessed by a demon can and does happen, and he has seen it all too often. (Psychiatrist Says Demonic Possession Is Real)

(The Centuries Old Curse of Fyvie Castle) *** Year after year a 1950 photo from a German newspaper has continued to circulate amongst Ufologists and UFO enthusiasts. The story claims to show a short extraterrestrial humanoid standing next to two full-sized men. So why hasn’t Germany admitted to the photo’s validity? (The Little Green Man That Refused to Die) *** “The call is coming from inside the house.” These eight words have been uttered by countless children, and mark one of the most popular urban legends of all time. This legend, unfortunately, is rooted in a real unsolved murder case from 1950. (Who Killed Janett Christman)

“HAUNTED CHILDREN AND CHILDREN WHO HAUNT” #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: It's been said that kids are more open to the supernatural, perhaps because their minds haven't been closed off to the possibilities that ghosts really exist. That makes stories about childhood hauntings even creepier. The real stories I'll be sharing in this episode include ghosts encountered by kids of all ages. The stories might convince you that the nightlight your child insists stay on in the bedroom, needs to stay on for a reason. (Haunted Children) *** There's something inherently chilling about old orphanages. Maybe it's the fact that scary orphanage stories abound - after all, the buildings are associated with heartbroken and lonely children. And not all of these tales concern the living. Plenty of real life ghost stories feature orphanages filled with restless and vengeful child spirits. (Orphanage Ghosts) *** And what should you do if your child says they see a ghost? Do you tell them there is no such thing? Do you encourage them to believe more fully? What’s the right thing to do? A couple of child psychologists have a few ideas on what you can do.

I’m not sure what happened, but somehow audio kept getting clipped during the narration recording.)If you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: With Disney’s live-action “Aladdin” came angry criticism regarding Will Smith in the role of the genie – both how he looked and how he acted. But the truth behind real genies is much more terrifying. (The Horror Behind Real Genies) *** An army wife and Weirdo family member opens her heart and shares how horrible one of her homes felt, and the only relief she could find was moving out. (There’s No Place Like Anyplace Other Than Home) *** For centuries people in Britain have been reporting a large black beast terrorizing the countryside, killing the innocent – even now in the 21st century. Is the Black Shuck legend a ghost-hound, a huge stray dog - or perhaps an escaped panther? Maybe a werewolf? Or could it be a true-to-life hound from the fires of hell? (The Hellhound of England) *** A camping trip for young boys turns dark after a night of ghost stories that somehow come to life. (Shadows On The Cliff) *** A man goes hunting for hares in Australia – and encounters a large hairy beast instead. (The Gorillas of Eden) *** A young boy lovingly takes care of his grandmother every day – and strange happenings in her house don’t stop him. (The Other Company) *** Luka Magnotta would do anything for fame – and he chose the darkest and most sadistic way to achieve it.

“EXECUTION BY URINE” and More Creepy, True, and Horrifying Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: When you think of methods of execution, what comes to mind? Electric chair? Hanging? Firing squad? Lethal injection? Or perhaps something a bit more historic like guillotine, or even stoning. But I’m guessing the last thing you’d think of for a method of execution would be death by golden shower. (Death by Urination) *** Had Daniel Lambert been alive today, he would’ve carted his more than 700 pounds around in a motorized scooter, as too many morbidly obese people choose to do. But in the early 1800s, such amenities weren’t available, because there was no market for them. Lambert was a true anomaly. And people couldn’t get enough of him. (Daniel Lambert: Fat Man On Display) *** A woman describes how frightened she was when working in a school after hours – so frightened that now, over 23-years-later, she still has trouble sleeping due to the fear she experienced. (Horrible, No-good, Very Bad Schoolhouse) *** An eerie painting spooked many who just saw it. Those who owned it fared worse. Could this piece, painted in 1972, truly be haunted? (The Hands Resist Him: Haunted Painting) *** From murdering children to drinking blood, Peter Kürten was "the king of the sexual perverts" and perhaps the worst serial killer ever. So it’s no surprise he would be tagged with the word “vampire” to describe him. (The Abominations Of Peter Kürten - Vampire Of Düsseldorf)

These "friends" were usually nice, funny, and even comforting. They took the form of animals, other humans, and sometimes larger-than-life characters that defy classification. And sometimes they were extremely creepy and downright scary, especially when examined in hindsight.

“DEADLY DOCTORS, NASTY NURSES, AND MURDEROUS MEDICINE” #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: H.H. Holmes allegedly killed as many as 200 people by luring visitors to his lair during the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The 100 rooms of the house he built, were filled with trapdoors, gas chambers, staircases to nowhere, and a human-sized stove. But now, some historians say many of the gruesome stories about Doctor Holmes may be myth! (The Doctor And His Murder Castle) *** Michael Swango was an MD. He was a doctor. But the MD after his name could just as easily have represented “Master of Death”, or “Many Dead” - because there were. Up to sixty of his patients died by his own hands before he was stopped. (Doctor of Death) *** Dr. Buck Ruxton’s brutal deeds earned the surgeon a grim nickname… the Savage Surgeon. (The Savage Surgeon) *** During his 26-year reign at the Trenton Psychiatric Hospital, Dr. Henry Cotton performed over 645 twisted operations in which he tried to "save" the mentally ill. (The Horrifying Cures of Dr. Cotton) *** Stubbins Ffirth was so determined to learn about Yellow Fever in the late 1700s that he purposely exposed himself to those who had it. But HOW he exposed himself is an utter nightmare and will curl your stomach. (The Insane Experiment of Stubbins Ffirth) *** Horrifying medical experiments on twins helped Nazis justify the Holocaust, and at the center of it was Dr. Josef Mengele. (The Nazi Angel of Death) *** We’ll also look at a few other derailed doctors and nurses who had an unhealthy appetite for lobotomies, blisters, and the plague. (Doctors of Evil) *** Doctors killing or experimenting on patients isn’t confined to human victims, some animal experiments were equally as gruesome or bizarre. For example, what would happen if you gave an elephant LSD?

“THE ORIGINAL GHOST HUNTER: HARRY PRICE” and More Terrifying True Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: In 1986 there was a surge in the number of people entering the Himalayan mountains, and never leaving. Those who did escape reported hearing a loud ringing alarm, so loud they had to cover their ears and run, and even then suffered severe or complete hearing loss. They may not have known it at the time, but they had just come into contact with SCP-6789, also known as Siren Head. (Siren Head) *** The coldest of cold cases for law enforcement in Idaho is the disappearance of Lillian Richey – and it’s also the most baffling, as Lillian disappeared from within her own home. (The Lillian Richey Vanishing) *** Many people consider Harry Price to be the first recognized ghost hunter in modern history. And he made a name for himself rather quickly. But then, if you are the first person to investigate the Borley Rectory, the most haunted building in England, you deserve to have your name remembered. (The Original Ghost Hunter: Harry Price) *** Grocery shopping is such a mundane activity that all families take part in it at some point, so it wasn’t a big deal when 11 year old Michaela and her mom went grocery shopping, picking up dinner for their Sunday night. Little did they know, they had caught the eye of a psychopath. (The Cheshire Murders) *** A family in Chicago was terrified when voices began emanating from the wall of their little girl’s bedroom! And the story has an odd twist, in that somehow, unbeknownst to me, I, your Weird Darkness narrator, Darren Marlar, and up right smack dab in the middle of it! (The Wall Spoke) *** 
In 1906, Clara Germana Cele, an orphaned 16-year-old girl living in South Africa, had her life changed forever. According to members of the clergy at St. Michael's Mission in Natal, the girl, known as Germana, sold her soul to the devil, and he immediately possessed her body and began causing havoc.

We look at some true stories of people coming face to face with monsters in their own home. (When The Monster in the Closet is Real) *** People have said they feel drained after seeing Black-Eyed Kids, or exhausted when speaking with whom they later discovered was a self-proclaimed vampire. Is it possible that otherworldly, ghostly entities, interdimensional creatures, and even occultist human beings are, in some way, literally feeing on us? (When The Supernatural Feeds On Us) *** Even for those immersed in Ufology, for many, a certain controversial subject is so troubling and disturbing they choose to outright ignore it, and seldom speak of it.

“INVISIBLE ALIENS AND SELF-REPLICATING ROBOTS” #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: We spend plenty of time watching the stars and listening to radio signals. We hope we can finally find the evidence we are not alone in the Universe. We eagerly await our first official contact with extraterrestrials, but nothing ever happens. Sometimes we learn an odd signal has been picked up in space and we get our hopes up again, only to be told later it was nothing more than a neutron star with a very large magnetic field, throwing off the bursts, or something similar. So, where are the aliens we want to hear from and possibly meet? If we assume that we are not the only intelligent species in the universe, then they must be out there. There are many theories, but one stands out as particularly disturbing.

Theories range from high-tech Soviet death rays to extraterrestrials studying how we engage in battle to combat-stress-induced hallucinations. What actually happened?

But first, I’ll share a chapter from the upcoming audiobook, “Suffer the Children: American Horrors, Homicides and Hauntings” by Troy Taylor.

In Brazil, two corpses were found on a hill, dressed in matching suits with homemade lead masks draped over their eyes. (The Lead Masks Case) *** If you were to be asked who the most horrible, terrifying figure in the Bible was, you would likely say Lucifer – that is, Satan himself. But there is a figure even more terrifying – and it is God’s right-hand man in the book of Revelation. (God’s Right Hand Man) *** Horror – the stories and images seem to change with each passing year, but there was a violent shift in horror shortly after the violent reality of the “War to End All Wars”. (How Horror Changed After World War 1) *** Two sisters rebel against their depressing family life by diving into witchcraft – and soon learn it was not a wise decision. (Leftover Magic) *** In 1827, young Maria Marten slipped into a red barn to meet her secret lover. It was the last time she would be seen alive. (Murder in the Red Barn) *** Madeleine Smith had a rich fiancé, a secret lover, and one heck of a secret hot chocolate recipe. A lethal secret recipe. (The Hot Cocoa Killer) *** Was the 1971 Lloyds Bank safety deposit robbery a covert operation to retrieve compromising photos of Royalty? (The Baker Street Robbery) *** From mouths nailed shut to being buried headfirst in the ground, throughout history the fear of witches has led to extraordinary measures to keep the dead from rising from the grave. (How To Bury a Witch) *** From creepy voices to mysterious movements to strange laughter and eerie deaths, the legend of Robert the Doll outshines many cursed object stories and has been haunting people for over a hundred years, and shows no sign of slowing down.

“PLANET WEREWOLF” and More Terrifying True Paranormal Horror Stories! #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: On a barren field in the U.S. state of Georgia, five granite slabs rise in a star pattern. Each of them weighs over 20 tons and on top of them, there is a capstone. Nobody knows who built it or why they were placed there, but one popular opinion that their purpose is to guide humanity after a predicted post-apocalyptic event that will come in the not so distant future. *** When you think "fairies," what comes to mind? You probably picture an adorable and sparkly creature akin to Disney's Tinker Bell, a lovely - and above all, friendly - presence. You may even want to make contact with them. Unfortunately, glittering humanoids with butterfly wings are the stuff of children's books. Retrace faerie folklore, and you'll discover their secret scary origins. *** In the Summer of 1949, a geologist named Vadim Kolpakov discovered a strange feature on the surface of the earth in the Bodaibo, Irkutsk, region of South-Eastern Siberia. Encircled by a largely treed area, this anomaly is oval with a conical crater that contains a small ball-like mound in its middle. The geologic mystery has baffled scientists who are uncertain of what caused this weird formation. *** Is there any truth behind the enduring legend of the werewolf?

Learn more about it here: IN THIS EPISODE: She is said to have wings, and two souls. She can form into the shape of an owl at will. She usually haunts churches, towers, and barns. We’ll look at the vampiric demon named Strix. *** Is it possible that you are, without even knowing it, reacting to the energy around you in a way others don’t? Could you be clairsentient? *** Some believe the secretive society known as the Freemasons are so powerful and influential, that they have members in all branches of the government, in almost all countries around the world. Is it possible then that they could make an outspoken critic of the society inexplicably disappear? *** Are you finding it difficult to live under the COVID-19 quarantine? Finding self-isolation torturous? If so, you might want to hear from those who lived through the Middle Ages! *** The murder of Jennifer Pan's mother and attempted murder of her father was not an explosive act of violence, it was a pre-planned orchestrated ‘hit’ designed for maximum effect. How and why would a 24-year-old do such a horrific thing? *** It’s been called “the most dangerous threat to American sovereignty”; “An anti-human document, which takes aim at Western culture, and the Judeo-Christian and Islamic religions,” that will bring “new Dark Ages of pain and misery yet unknown to mankind,” and “abolish golf courses, grazing pastures and paved roads,” in the name of creating a “one-world order.” What is Agenda 21?

“THE WENDIGO” by Algernon Blackwood #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: “The Wendigo” is a novella written by Algernon Blackwood. It was originally published in the 1910 collection “The Lost Valley and Other Stories” which I’ve placed a link to in the show notes. The story involves a hunting party that gets separated in the Canadian wilderness in search for moose. One of the party members is abducted by the legendary Wendigo. Fellow author Robert Aickman once said of the story, it’s "...one of the (possibly) six great masterpieces in the field". Here’s hoping you agree with him.

The water is so caustic that it can burn the skin and eyes of unprepared creatures. And it can turn flesh into stone.

(The Mysterious Death of Marc Antoine Calas) *** Most know them as “The Hidden Folk.” The elusive and magical residents of Iceland, who live inside rocks and sometimes play games with unsuspecting passers-by. Are they real? That’s a complicated question, if you ask Icelanders. (The Elves of Iceland) *** As two boys were walking back to the house on their farm, a small stone rolled past them. Then a second one. They immediately thought some other boys were hiding in the scrub and throwing stones for a joke. They couldn’t have been more wrong. (Stone Throwing Spirits) *** Belle Gunness lured numerous suitors to her Indiana farm. Not to entertain them or to be courted by them. She simply wanted to kill them in cold blood and dump their bodies in her hog pen. (Belle Gunness – The Black Widow of the Midwest) *** Were people ever really tortured in Iron Maidens? (The Iron Maiden) *** "They're going to steal your organs!" screamed Sabina Eriksson, before running toward oncoming traffic on the M6 highway, having already been hit head-on by a Volkswagen. Her twin sister, Ursula, legs crushed by the truck that had just run her over, was spitting and screaming at paramedics on the side of the road. Now, more than a decade after these events, we’re still no closer to understanding the chaos that occurred over two days in 2008 involving psychotic twin sisters on a UK highway.

Did she commit suicide? Despite her death in 1889, we still don’t know how Maggie Hourigan died.

(The UFO Case That Refuses to Die) *** Greer Island, a small patch of land close to where the West Fork of the Trinity River flows into Lake Worth, is heavily shaded by tall oaks, cedar elms and cottonwoods.

(The Lake Worth Monster) *** In 2017, Washington State Senator Karen Keiser was quoted as saying, “The incidents continue, they continue, and we have to consider that there is potential cosmic life over the island… it’s a very special place, with a cosmic presence.” What exactly happened on Maurey Island in 1947? (The Maurey Island Incident) *** Whether you’re a true believer or one of those skeptics, stories of spirits haunting the living from the confines of a Ouija board can chill you to the bone, and make you think twice before communicating with entities from another dimension.

So why is this 85-year-old building bursting at the seams with spirits and specters? The answer to that is not any easy one to give. (The Haunted Smethwick Baths) *** They look strange, there’s a weird otherworldliness to them, when encountered people often find the’ve lost hours of time with no memory, and the beings are often known to abduct people in the middle of the night. It sounds like I’m describing alien abduction – but the same, all of it, can also be said of fairie folk in European legend. Is it possible there is a connection? Could the mythical fairies of old actually be the extraterrestrials we tell stories about today? (The Extraterrestrials Want Twinkies) *** Elsie Eiler pays taxes... to herself. She grants her own liquor license to herself for the tavern she owns – which is possible when you are the mayor… and bartender… and law enforcement, and even the librarian. You see, Elsie Eiler is the sole resident of Monowi, Nebraska – but that doesn’t mean she’s alone.

But by the time ranch hands discovered four more dead bulls within 24 hours, they knew they were likely dealing with deliberate, premeditated killings. (Oregon Cattle Mutilations) *** To quote one survivor of a near-death experience: “I know of no English words for the combination of joy, ecstasy, love, and requited longing that burned within me. It carried me to a dimension I never knew existed. In that moment, there was no pain of loss, only unity, rapture and reunion.” Is it possible that we may soon have scientific evidence for what lies beyond the veil? (New Evidence of Life After Death) *** Seeing specters in the reflection of a mirror or piece of glass is not just a cliché movie trope. There is a history that goes along with the happening. (Ghost In The Mirror) *** We’ve all heard of haunted forests – but there is one that is so disturbing it drives some people to want to commit murder! (Where The Woods Entice You To Murder) *** When it comes to ghostly apparitions, the White Lady are ubiquitous.

(The Pig Woman, The Preacher, and Murder) *** Hannah Beswick was so frightened by the idea of being accidentally buried alive, that she even told her doctor that upon her death she was not to be buried – just in case they’d pronounced her deceased a bit too early. And that was the beginning of her very strange afterlife.

What if extraterrestrial life is indistinguishable from the laws of physics? (Does Dark Matter Explain Extraterrestrial Life?) *** Haunted locations are so popular nowadays that it’s almost impossible to keep a lid on it if you don’t want the word to get out that your house, business, or even car is haunted. But then there is a hotel in Wales that is haunted.. but no one seems to know about it. (Haunting in the Grand Hotel) *** Local legend holds that La Pascualita is the preserved corpse of the original shop owner's daughter, who died tragically on her wedding day. Others believe she is just a mannequin created by a skilled artist. For over 90 years the question has remained – and no one has the answer.

Of all the instances of cannibalism found in human history, no one quite practiced it like some in China used to. In these cases, cannibalism came in the form of eating mellified flesh for medicinal purposes. In 16th century China, mellification was a way for elderly people nearing the end of their lives to donate their body to science. The idea, originally derived from an Arabic recipe, was that they could turn their bodies into medicine that would be ingested by their descendants to alleviate ailments like broken bones. The process of mellification was a gruesome one. In short, it consisted of very slowly turning one’s body into a mummified human candy bar. And that’s not even the worst part — for mellification to be the most effective, the process started while the person was still alive.TODAY’S BONUS AUDIO FOR PATRONS…“Married to a Murderer”: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34713159 LINKS MENTIONED IN THE EPISODE…“Live Scream, Halloween 2019”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvPdgHIbKsU “Zozo And The Ouija Board” episode: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/5734 “The Fraudulent Warrens” episode: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/5725 “True Bigfoot Stories You’ve Probably Never Heard” episode: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/185 “The Horror at Pemberton Mill” Share & Win Facebook post: https://tinyurl.com/szwu3zt STORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Note: Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)Katie Serena: https://tinyurl.com/rjwv5cwPaul Salopek: https://tinyurl.com/wz23h9d Brent Swancer: https://tinyurl.com/w2mqzyp Stranger Remains: https://tinyurl.com/w795gxp Natalie Zarrelli: https://tinyurl.com/tsqhqbl Maria Dolan: https://tinyurl.com/y6spcbcb Weird Darkness opening and closing theme by Alibi Music Library.

But it appears they may not be as advertised. If fact, they’ve been shown to be fraudulent on more than one occasion. *** Whether or not you believe in curses, luck, or fate it may be hard to explain away some of the eerie items people have had in their keeping, only to get rid of them as quickly as possible for fear of suffering more calamities. *** A woman describes her home as a child as evil – even on sunny days, the gloom would overtake her. *** When it comes to B-movie horror, you can’t do much better than the 1958 classic “The Blob”. But don’t believe it’s just science fiction – reports have been coming for years of people in real life actually coming across some type of amorphous creatures very similar to what was originally seen on the big screen. *** In an old cemetery in North Carolina, a young girl is buried – but not in a coffin as you might expect. She was buried while submerged in a keg of rum. *** Ebeneezer Scrooge had nothing on a man named Charles Henry. Charles was miserly, and cruel. No doubt he had a long list of people who could’ve been accused of wanting him dead.

Become a patron at http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDO.IN THIS EPISODE: During the bubonic plague in the early Middle-Ages, those who became sick and were even suspected of having the plague, were forced to relocate to a quarantined island – Poveglia Island. The gruesomeness that took place there still continues today, with the island being illegal to visit – and reportedly, very haunted. (Inside Black Plague Island) *** About 80 years after the black plague began, a different plague came upon England – a fatal one that would cause you to almost instantly perspire to death. (Death By Sweat) *** Europe just could not escape plagues of any kind – for example, the plague that made you, against your will, keep dancing until you dropped dead. (The Dance of Death) *** Most everyone is familiar with the plague in Europe in the early 1400s – but in the early 1900s it struck again. This time in San Francisco. If you’ve not heard that before, it could be because the U.S. government tried to cover it up. (The Plague of San Francisco) *** We look at some of the bathing – and lack thereof – that took place during the bubonic plague, as well as some of the beliefs they had about diet and how it might protect from contagion. Some of the ideas of what people thought could protect them from the disease are nothing short of shocking. (Living With The Black Death) *** Of all the imagery that comes to mind when hearing the words “bubonic plague” the most prevalent is most certainly that of the doctors – and the odd, bird-like masks they would wear. Why they dressed that way is interesting – but what the doctors did while wearing those suits and in their labs as they tried to battle the illness is absolutely horrifying. (Plague Doctors) *** And it probably comes as no surprise that something so deadly and horrific as the black plague would leave behind some residual paranormal energy – and boy is there a lot of it. (A Plague of Ghosts) *** We step into the Chamber of Comments, PLUS sometime during the show I’ll announce this month’s [email protected] winner!

And her name, was Nelly Cooper. *** Built in 1839, Highgate Cemetery, in Highgate, London, is now said to be one of the most actively haunted cemeteries in the UK.

A couple were brought in to clear out the property after the estate had been settled. When it came time to clear out the deceased woman’s shed, what they found was more than disturbing… it was horrifying. *** A neighborhood in old Louisville, Kentucky had a large tree that stood in the center of the court – and served at one time as a hanging tree for various lynchings in the 1800s.

In the Warner Bros film, “Orphan”, Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga star as a couple who adopt a 9-year-old girl after losing their own baby ... then slowly discover their new daughter is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be. Deciding to adopt a girl at the local orphanage, the couple are immediately drawn to a beautiful little girl by the name of Esther. But innocent-looking Esther is not what she appears to be. The wife desperately tries to get her husband and others to see past Esther's sweet facade. Now, as her warnings go unheeded... it may be too late -- for everyone. The 2009 film was a controversial one; it terrified not just moviegoers, but also adoption agencies and even the federal government. But it was just a movie. Until, ten years later… when it wasn’t.MENTIONED LINKS IN THE EPISODE…“A Summer of Werewolves” episode: http://weirddarkness.com/archives/5391"Can You Sense Evil In Others” episode: http://weirddarkness.com/archives/5424 SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a PATRON (Official Weirdo): http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDO Leave Your Review: https://ratethispodcast.com/weirddarkness Visit my sponsors: http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/sponsors STORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Note: Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“Orphan Horror”” by ben Radford from Seeker (https://tinyurl.com/txtd4ap) and Ben Ashford at MSN (https://tinyurl.com/ttox4k4)Weird Darkness opening and closing theme by Alibi Music Library.
