The Bell Island Hag


Dan’s  first story is really three stories mixed with some local lore. First, after going over the kinds of paranormal encounters most often reported from people visiting Virginia’s Braley, we explore the story of a murder that took place that that has added to its reputation as a paranormal hotspot. Then, we’ll go over what an area ghost hunter claims happened to them there. And finally, a young woman’s terrifying modern encounter claim.  After that, we’ll be off to Canada to cover a whole bunch of lore associated with numerous sightings of a night hag in Newfoundland. Lynze shares just one big story this week about a less scary but rather helpful spiritual hitchhiker! 

New Merch:  The official merch for our 3rd annual Haunted Halloween Show is here! VERY cool and creepy illustration from Logan depicting a ghostlike face screaming in terror.  You can also grab tickets to our October 13th event at

Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: This month, we are headed to camp! And with that, we work hand in hand with the host camp, Camp No Counselors, to seek a worthy camp related non profit. We landed on Morry’s Camp, also known as Project Morry. Project Morry was born out of summer camp pioneer Morry Stein’s dream that all children, regardless of economic status, should experience the life-changing gift of summer camp. Beginning as a summer camp experience, Project Morry has grown into a comprehensive year-round youth development organization, with Morry’s Camp still at the heart of our program. What I love about this non profit is that the support for under served children does not stop at summer camp. Project Morry is committed to closing opportunity gaps that exist in our community and working to ensure young people from under-resourced communities graduate high school ready for college, careers and life.  The bartenders at Wet Hot Bad Magic Summer camp are joining us by committing to donating 100% of their tips to Project Morry as well so our total for this month will be announced later. Until then, if you want to learn more, please visit

Standup: If you want to see a very different side of Dan than you see here and possibly see Lynze in the crowd (she is always happy to say HI!) get on over to for ticket links to shows. You can find him in Providence, Buffalo, Lexington, Chicago and 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.”
