Special Announcement:

We here at Bad Magic Productions would like to take a moment to express our sincerest sympathies to all of those whose lives are forever changed by the senseless shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde and Tulsa. Our hearts are with you. 

Episode Notes:

Dan has one giant story, and one little baby story. The first is an alien abduction claim, the second the claim of a curse. They both got a fair amount of press and you can find info on them from numerous sources. The first story is the basis of the 1993 sci-fi mystery film, Fire in the Sky. Was Travis Walton really abducted by and experimented on by  aliens? His story went on to be one of the most heavily documented alien abduction claim in US history. The second story involves claims of a curse. Did an actual witch curse a 35 year-old man in 1991? And did he die as a direct result? It sounds crazy – but the documented details of his haunting story are incredibly disturbing. Was Christopher literally scared to death?  Lynze has just one, big, fat story this week. She explores the possibility of a young man being caught up in something bizarre and disturbing. Could it be mental illness? Could it be far more sinister? 

New Merch: New “Nightmare Man” tee and coffee mug in the store at It’s disturbing.  We wouldn’t want to see this face in the mirror.

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.”
