“Eight HUMAN skulls. I froze with fear at the sight of them. I’d never seen actual human skulls up that close before. Who puts them on a gate like that? Why? And now I’d have to climb over them.”
Thanks to Dan, we all have something new to fear. Have you ever heard of the Bangladeshi Nishi? We sure as hell hadn’t and now we wish we didn’t know what it was. Dan takes us on two really amazing journeys this week. We start in Bangladesh for the story of an encounter, or maybe 2, with a Nishi. If you don’t know…. well now you know. For the second story, Dan brings us back to the US for a story that takes place in North Carolina and more specifically, at The Devil’s Tramping Ground. These is this spot in the forest where nothing can or will grow. But why? What is happening here? Local legends and folklore offer a variety of options. Would you risk camping here, knowing the stories? Find out what happens to a couple who tempt fate.
Lynze takes us back to college with the story of a possibly haunted dorm. More than haunted, could it simply be a lonely spirit that wants to play? For her second story, we travel to Mexico to hear one that has been handed down from one generation to the next. Hold on tight!

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.”
