SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.
Dan has his normal two stories again. And there’s a theme with them both -faith seemingly conquering evil. The first story is set in the present day – centered around a woman living alone in North Carolina in what she’d hoped was going to be her dream home. And then a real bad former resident tries to turn her dream into a nightmare. Next, we travel over a hundred years back in time and head to southern India. A prominent family is terrorized by an entity that likes to play with fire. Literally. Lynze has three stories this week. A story about a possibly haunted gravesite, a strange tale that might make you wonder if it was a ghost or a prank and then the creepiest little story about what kids can see that we cannot.
We’re excited to bring back an old favorite The 2023 Bad Magic Street Team! The stickers will be available on Wednesday, August 2nd, Noon PST. We’ll have 500 packs of 10 available to ship out. The sticker packs are free – you only pay for shipping. Since these are free, please limit your purchase to 1 pack so more of you can get in on the fun. Stick ‘em all over the place. Wherever you feel comfortable sticking ‘em. On your forehead. Your neighbor’s forehead. That cool spot in the record shop bathroom where every one puts stickers. I remember in past years, finding them on hiking trails, ski lifts, rest stop stalls, all over the place. It was so fun.
Post your pics – get creative – on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTik – little videos/static images, whatever – and hashtag with #BadMagicStreetTeam . Thank you so much for helping us get the word out about our shows. The contest will last until October 2nd at Noon PT. We will look up posts based on the hashtag – #BadMagicStreetTeam – and the winner will get a $200 badmagicmerch.com store credit.

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.”
