“A few days later, after not seeing anyone enter or leave the house since the murders, a friend and neighbor of the Congeliers entered the home through a back door after knocking and getting no answer in the front.
And he encountered the terrible smell of flesh beginning to rot. And he found Lyda sitting in a rocking chair… covered in blood… holding the severed heads of both Charles and Essie… singing them a lullaby. “
Dan shares the long history and supposed haunting of The House The Devil Built, also known as the Congelier Mansion or The House on Ridge Avenue. No matter what you call it, it’s downright creepy. And is it even true? Did the house ever exist and sustain multiple murders followed by multiple hauntings or was it all, simply, folklore. Listen and decide for yourself. Dan’s second story explores the very terrifying topic of Dopplegangers. While we know this subject matter freaks Dan out, he really gets under Lynze’s skin with it this week. What if a Doppleganger could actually impersonate you and cause havoc in your life? How would you ever prove it wasn’t you?
Lynze’s side of the show is a little bit different this week as she takes on three listener stories that all explore the mystery of what happens when we die, what’s on the other side and how do you even know what to think of it all? Story one moves us up to Boston for the miraculous and strangely predicted recovery of a family member. In story two, a fan shares a tale of crossing over to the other side and then coming back. What did he see? What did he learn? And lastly, rounding out the tales is an odd coincidence of someone being haunted by someone their friend knows.

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.”
