“I pestered my mother into talking about what she remembers from that night. She was reluctant, but she did tell me something that I haven’t been able to shake: That night, the whispers were talking to her specifically. They were telling her to harm her children…”
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.
Dan has two traditional-type stories for this week! The first one takes us to South Carolina. A modern encounter with the occult, it seems, in the old haunted Newry Mill. An abandoned old textile mill long used as a teen hangout and drinking spot. Then, we head to the little town of Mitchell, Indiana, to check out a haunted house known as Whispers Estate. We dig into its history to find out how it got this name. Lynze knocks it out of the park this week and really creeps Dan out with a tale about a haunted dresser with evil intentions. Wrapping up the episode is strange encounter with a woman? A spirit? Listen to find out!

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.”
