The Birthday Present


Dan has just one story this week and it is intense.  Even if this person’s claims are not true, it’s still a scary story.  And if they are true… well… then…  Lynze has two awesome stories to share. Her first one will really get under your skin, cause that lingering affect. And her second tale might have you looking more closely at your vehicle when things act up! 

New Merch:  A refresh to our Protection Blanket! Introducing an updated Protection Ritual design. Super cool depiction of a young witch summoning the ‘Scared to Death’ spirits, surrounded by her altar of skulls, candles, & books.  A cool update to one of our most popular designs. The collection features of course a blanket, as well as a wall tapestry, Premium Tee Shirt, and Wall Canvas.

Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: On both Scared To Death and Timesuck, we talk about a lot of death in a variety of ways. And while we as a people have a fascination with murder mystery, at the end of the day, the deceased was someone’s son, wife, grandmother, uncle and so on. When a family looses a loved one in a cold case, the affects of it are painful in ways we can’t understand. The DNA Doe Project is a non profit with a simple humanitarian mission: to identify John and Jane Does using investigative genetic genealogy. We want help give some healing to those who has suffered such significant loss. Our donation amount is TBD right now as we are recording this in the final weeks of April. To learn more, please visit

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.”
