“In 1947, three supervisors all turned up missing one afternoon. They were found unconscious and locked in a small boiler room in the southeastern part of the plant.
None of them could explain exactly what had happened to them. But all three agreed they’d been approached by a man they didn’t know shortly before they blacked out. A man whose skin appeared badly burned and who angrily shouted at them “to push some steel.”
What if your workplace was haunted? What if the ghost haunting your work was a former boss and he meant you harm? That is the story Dan weaves in his first half of episode 82. Dan takes us to Alabama to hear the story of the supposedly haunted Sloss Furnaces factory and their most famous resident ghost, James “Slag” Wormwood. For the second story of the first half of the show, Dan takes us over to Rhode Island to hear the story of a young woman so riddled with guilt to keeps trying to contact the dead to gain forgiveness. This particular story was reported to Ed and Lorraine Warren’s New England Society for Psychic Research, back in the late ’50s. When two young friends experience a tragedy while playing on the jungle gym, one of the friends dies. As the years go by, who is haunted? Is it the friend who is living, dealing with the guilt, or is the deceased always trying to reach out?
Going for a whole new fan base, Lynze tells a tale submitted by an LDS listener. While on a mission in Mexico, does this elder come into contact with a spirit while witnessing a possible possession? If so, could it be that this spirit has taken up residency with the elders who witnessed its banishment? Stay till the end for an interesting detail as told by another elder. Moving from Mexico to the middle of nowhere suburbia, Lynze transports us to a haunted station. When a young man is working the graveyard shift at the local radio station, of course, he invites his friends to come hang out. One of his friends wants to practice his musical talents and records his jam session. When he plays back the track to bathe in his greatness, he hears a lot more than just his rendition of “Tom Sawyer”.

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.”
