The Elevator Game


Dan’s  first story is about South Korea’s The Elevator Game. Is this nothing more than an urban legend? Or could this modern encounter story I’ll be sharing possibly be true? Could performing this elevator-based ritual somehow allow you to enter what sounds like Hell? The next story  is the legend of The Curse of Ca’Dario. A Venetian mansion, built in the late 15th century, that might actually be cursed or at least extremely haunted.  Lynze will explore predictive dreams, a concept that seems to rarely come up on STDP, in her first story.  It’s hard to know when dreams are telling us the future or predicting or are just coincidental. The final story of this week is a creepy cabin tale. A man takes some time away from his life to find himself but does he find so much more than he bargained for? 

New Merch:  A new GTFO doormat requested by a handful of you actually. This is one we’ll definitely want pictures of so
please be the weird person that no one wants to talk to, and grab yourself a new STDP doormat at and then post a pic and tag @scaredtodeathpodcast on IG and FB.

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.”
