“But the really awful thing—the hideous, horrible thing was that the dead guy was missing his skin…”

A quote from today’s second of two tales. The first story in today’s episode is the 2008 mysterious disappearance of Minnesotan Brandon Swanson. Did he vanish without a trace due to an extraterrestrial encounter? Our second story is really two tales both revolving around the Navajo legend of the skinwalker. Evil medicine men that some still believe to exist in the American West. And then Lynze shares another two chill-inducing listener tales of terror, one of which is based around three really creepy videos.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
