Shadows, Specters, and Strigoi: the One Year Anniversary Episode!

“People who’d known Arnold in life testified over and over that they had seen him walking through the village in the weeks following his documented death…”

A quote from today’s second of three opening tales! We have a big episode for you today as this week marks the one-year anniversary of the show. Thank you for making this show a success! Our first story covers the legend of Missouri’s Zombie Road and includes a few alleged encounters with something terrible. Then we head to Romania and Serbia and dig into tales of the strigoi – cryptid predecessor to tales of modern vampires. For our third story, we head to Italy and share a ghost hunter getting more than he bargained for during a stay at Villa De Vecchi – an abandoned mansion rumored to be one of Italy’s most haunted houses. And then Lynze shares three listener-submitted encounters with the spooky and the unknown for our biggest episode yet!

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.”
