The Boo Hag


Dan kicks off this episode of Scared To Death with the lore of the Boo Hag or the Old Hag Syndrome. Is this a terrifying experince that can be explained away by sleep paralysis or is it more sinister than that? Then we are headed to the border for a collection of short stories about various encounters with spirits and sightings.  Lynze finishes up the show with a tale of one woman’s connection to the other side as it pertains to her co-habitants at the nursing home she resides in. She also has a tale about dreams and what may come to us in our dreams- is it real or is it a shared experience or is it just a dream?

Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: This months charity donation is going to Camp Easton, a boy scouts camp here in CDA. Camp Easton is where we are hosting our Wet Hot Bad Magic Summer Camp!! We are donating $15,400 to them and putting $2000 into the scholarship fund! While visiting the location on many occasions, I have come to know some of the staff and hear about the needs of the camp. As with all places that are host to camps, they have a laundry list of repairs and upgrades that would be incredibly beneficial! 

Standup: If you want to see a very different side of Dan than you see here and possibly see Lynze in the crowd, his Symphony of Insanity standup tour will be back this fall. Go to for ticket links to shows in Nashville, Palm Beach, Portland 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.”
