The Shadow and The Doll


Dan has his usual two tales! The first REALLY gives goosebumps. This is the most wicked haunted or cursed or possessed doll we’ve come across so far! Next, we’ll head to the Appalachian Trail and look at a couple examples of uncomfortable and frightening encounters with dark figures that not only have been reported to watch hikers, but also to kidnap and attack them. If you believe these reports to be true, this story is gonna make you think twice about any hikes  you may have planned. Then Lynze has two really awesome stories to tell this week! Going in the theme of being out in nature, she shares the story of a couple camping and being disturbed by some mysterious entity? creature? ghost? Finishing out the episode, she tells us the tale of a kind, sweet man who is also a skeptic who is then possessed and is skeptic no 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.”
