“And Jackson said, “I woke up one morning and there was a figure in the room… she was very scary…. she had a screaming face, very accusatory, she was a lady about 50 years old.”
Then he added, “It was terrifying actually, a very scary image and she was at the end of the bed and she glided across the room… and disappeared into the wall.
I sat in bed and thought, have I really seen that?”
Dan takes us all on a journey to two places that Dan and Lynze love or dream of visiting! Kicking the show off is the tale of the St. James Theater in Wellington, New Zealand. Famed Film Director, Peter Jackson backs up the theories about the “Wailing Woman” who lives here. The story has a big build up to a stage hand possibly being harmed by this malevolent spirit. The “Wailing Woman” isn’t the only spirit living in the St. James Theater. Find out how many spirits might be here, the good and the bad, and a little bit of history in this tale. For the second story, we jump over to NOLA, one of Dan and Lynze’s most favorite places on earth, to explore one the most famous, most dark tales of Madame Delphine LaLaurie. While you may know the story of Madame LaLaurie, you surely haven’t heard this tale of a spirit from the home trying to reach out to the living!
Lynze has her usual two tales this week. Her first story touches on one of Dan’s biggest fears: Mirrors. Can you make contact with the other side, via a mirror, even when you aren’t trying? Can a spirit convince you to do something you normally wouldn’t do? And what if the person being tricked is just a child? Check out story one for this spoopy tale. In Lynze’s second tale, you are going to want to hang on until the very end. Sure, she might just be sharing an odd experience of a possibly haunted house but what if it were happening to you and what if you could hear it but you couldn’t see it? Dig into this tale with us!
For our December Patreon donation, we ended up donating to the Cult of the Curious Giving Tree.
The Cult of the Curious, if we haven’t described it here before – is the private Facebook group for the Timesuck podcast- and many Creeps and Peepers also listen to that podcast and are in that group.
We donated a little over $10,000 of this month’s overall Patreon contribution from both Scared to Death and Timesuck to buy gifts for listeners in need.
And then fans started sending in money.
The Cult of the Curious donated almost exactly $15,000.
And we said we’d match that, so now Lynze and I are giving another $15,000 to raise the total to a little over $40,000.
We’ll be sending presents – lots of presents – to EIGHTY different Cult of the Curious households.
Sorry we didn’t advertise it HERE, but, the response from Timesuck’s fans overwhelmed us so quickly – we knew we already wouldn’t be able to help everyone who wrote in and we didn’t want to disappoint more people.
NEXT YEAR – we will be sure to spread the word for the now annual Bad Magic Giving Tree to Creeps and Peepers as well.
Thank you Roberts and Annabelles for taking a lot of fear OUT of the holidays for many this year.
Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!

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.”
