This episode contains themes of drug use and suicide; it is explicit in every way. Take care while listening to Lynze’s first tale.
“According to legend, the Lai Thai is a jealous and vengeful female spirit – the ghost of a sexually insatiable, adulterous, cruel woman in life who is now crueler and more selfish in death. She roams the earth as a malevolent spirit – haunting the dreams of male villagers at night – always looking for another husband to take with her into the grave. It’s said that when she finds a man she’s attracted to – this succubus of sorts enters his dreams – a sexual Freddy Krueger who seduces him while he’s asleep, and then convinces his soul to follow her into the afterlife… leaving his body vacant and dead.”
The legend of the Lai Tai (or Lai Thai) is one that will make you nervous to go to sleep at night, if you happen to be a young Thai man. This spirit sweeps through villages in Thailand, capturing the lives of men. Could you be next? Dan tells us all about the Lai Tai this week as a little warm up story. Then he brings us to McCook, Nebraska for the The Tale of the ghost of Devil’s Canyon. When two friends embark on a day trip and one friend is really into exploring the paranormal, while the other friend tries to keep them safe, what could possibly go wrong when the creeper friend takes the reins? This is a classic campfire tale and Dan really brings you all of the chills with this one.
Lynze has a heavy story to start with. The story is sad, spooky, and uplifting, all at once. The ghost of the former owner of a home seems unable to leave. But perhaps, she has good reason to stick around. Is she there to haunt or to protect? And then, we are on a secret military mission in Yemen. In an already intense situation, could it possibly get any scarier than having your commander in charge start to unravel, to call out in words in a language they can’t possibly know? Hear what happens to a team of special op’s soldiers when then encounter the unknown.

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.”
