Underneath The Asylum

 

SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. 

Dan has his normal two tales this week.  The first is the story of East Bethany, New York’s Rolling Hills Asylum. He will cover its history, haunted lore, and a more detailed and disturbing encounter tale involving a former employee and patient. Then, we go one state over, and a couple hundred years back into the past to tell the story of Elizabeth Knapp’s supposed demonic possession in Groton, Massachusetts in 1671-1672, two decades before the Salem Witch Trials.  Lynze will share three tales this week! Her first one is about a man in a window that will have us asking if the house is haunted or the people inside of it.  Then the hat man pops in for a visit! And then, just for fun, less of a story and more of a confirmation picture!

Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: This month, we wanted to donate to the victims and their families of the recent mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvlade and Highland Park. That said, we knew it would be a challenge to pick one of the other. We decided to donate to the National Compassion fund, whose mission is to give funds to the victims of mass casualty crimes, such as mass shootings and terrorist attacks. The truth is, there are so many charities for all of the awful things that happen in the world and we were looking to give money to place that could best use the funds to help as many people as possible. Our donation amount is still TBD, as we record in advance, so in the meantime, if you’d like to donate or gather more information, please visit nationalcompassion.org

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.”
