The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall

“Just then on the opposite side of my room, I watched this dark, smoky, human-like form crawl up my wall, each step it took made a tsssss (like water on a frying pan sound) and smoke was coming from each hand and foot connection with my wall.”

This week Dan takes from England to Malaysia, such a fun show! To kick off the show, Dan shares an old but interesting tale from Raynham Hall. Did a pair of photographers catch The Brown Lady (it’s a reference to her dress!) ascending the stairs? Can it really be proven? What happens when its been centuries of people seeing a ghost; does it make it more possible. Lynze really buys into the idea that this ghost is real. From there, we pop over to Malaysia to learn the folkloric tale of the penanggalan- a bodyless woman whose insides trail behind her as she attacks her victims. Is she real? Listen as two very logical people have a strange and frightening encounter with what they believe to be a penanggalan. In the back half of the show, Lynze has one heck of a creepy story about something haunting a child. While the story has a slow start make sure you stay tuned for the MAJOR plot twist! After that, let’s head over to the forests of Michigan. (This is where all people from Ohio groan. Not the “M” word…) What would you do if you saw an old man in the woods? Would you offer him help or would you GTFO?

ALSO! In honor of Veteran’s Day we are making a Bad Magic Productions donation of $10,000 to this month. This money comes from the combination of the Timesuck and Scared to Death Patrons. We’ve been doing for a few years on Timesuck – so happy to be doing here now as well. Thank you Roberts and Annabelles! We are so proud and grateful to be able to come together as a community to donate to this incredible cause. Stick around at the end of the show to listen to Dan and Lynze chat more about giving back.

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.”
