SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.
Dan has some fun in store this week! One tale is a little more traditional, and packed with a lot of good scares, and one that is very, VERY strange. The first is the story of Lake Morena Campground, in Campo, California. An area of the outdoors that has been rumored to be haunted for decades. I’ll share some lore and an intense modern encounter story. The second story is the sorcerers of Chiloé . In 1880, on an island off the coast of Chile, several residents were convicted of belonging to a secret society of warlocks using black magic to intimidate and in some cases, even murder. The trial uncovered some very, VERY strange local lore involving monsters, wizard duels, and ghost ship, and more. Lynze and her fan tales take us back to The Crescent Hotel with an odd tale of exploring what lingers there. Then in her last story, her fan story is surrounded in grief and sadness but who said the spoops couldn’t also be sad.

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. 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
Also – 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 dancummins.tv 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.”
