This weeks episode is EXTRA special!! Dan and Lynze recorded on the road, from one of the most haunted cities in America, NEW ORLEANS!!

Dan and Lynze love NOLA, which is no secret. This week the pair was on the road and wanted to try out recording an episode while away from their recording studio in Coeur D’Alene, ID. As the world starts to reopen, Dan will be touring again for stand up, so now seemed like the perfect time to test out the traveling recording kit! If you’re considering watching this episode on YouTube, note that this entire episode is in complete 360 degrees!

With that out of the way, get ready for four stories that all take place in New Orleans! Does is get any spoopier than NOLA themed stories, recorded in NOLA.

“Guests began to witness what they would later think was the Chef’s ghost in the dining rooms or near the front door. Sometimes smiling at a guest. A few even claimed he asked them if they’d enjoyed their meal.

Does the Chef not know he’s dead? Has his love for Brennan’s tied him to the building? Is there something paranormally “sticky” about the location, for lack of a better term, that allowed hi spirit to be bound?”

Dan has a great story to kick off the episode, about one of NOLA’s most well known families, The Brennan’s. The Brennan’s own many restaurants in New Orleans and thus, have a hold on some of the oldest buildings. When one of their top chefs passes away, it would appear he is not quite ready to hang up his chef’s hat. In his second story, Dan shares the tale of Louis Congo, a former slave turned executioner, and one man’s possible encounter with him. Louis was freed from slavery only to be subjected to a whole different kind of hell. Did Louis enjoy torturing and killing people? Is it possible that his spirit still haunts Jackson Square, awaiting another person to break on the wheel?

Lynze also has two very intense New Orleans stories. Taking place very near Jackson Square, a fan submits a story that begins at the Moon Walk. A security guard has the strangest encounter with someone that he can see but more importantly, can small. Is this a vision, a spirit or a homeless person? Stick with the story to find out if whatever it is, has the ability to leave the Moon Walk and follow the security guard to another location. In her second story, we offer a TW about suicide. Lynze shares the story of the NOLA Cannibal. Perhaps you have heard this tale. A story of drug use and mental illness combined with love and the aftermath of Katrina, a man murders and chops up his former lover, cooking and preserving her body. Years later, when two friends visit the scene of the crime, is the spirit of the deceased trying to communicate her story? Tune in to find out!

Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation:

This month, we are donating $13,300 to a non profit that might sound familiar to you, The Saint Bernard Project, aka SBP.

Thanks to your support, we’ll be donating over $12,500 dollars to help those in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana as they continue to work on their recovery from winter storm Uri.

The SBP, the more funds they receive, the more they will be able to assist in helping low income home owners, who generally have the least amount of access to resources. SBP volunteers are on-the-ground right now in Houston and southwest Louisiana repairing damage caused by burst pipes for those impacted by the storm, providing mucking, gutting and mold remediation services, replacing drywall, repairing damaged pipes, and so much more.

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.”
