    Ep. 57: The Salem Witch Trials, Pt. 2 - The Accused

    Ep. 57: The Salem Witch Trials, Pt. 2 - The Accused

    In this 2nd part of what's become a 3-part series, we dive deeper into the tragic events of the 1692 Salem Witch Trials and how the hysteria began to rapidly spread across Salem and beyond - now in the guise of dozens of arrests and hearings with suspected witches fingered by a gaggle of mostly teenage girls. 

    Carrie introduces us to the key players in the Salem Witch Trials and the context in which they existed...from afflicted girl Mercy Lewis' deep-rooted trauma from being orphaned by Maine's Native American wars, to elderly jerk Giles Corey accusing his own wife of witchcraft only to see suspicion cast on himself, to Salem's former minister Reverend George Burroughs being dragged back to town all the way from Maine for questioning...and many more. We try and take these real people from just names on a centuries-old list of victims to a more potent - and horrific - reality.

    Ep. 56: The Salem Witch Trials, Pt. 1 - The Accusers

    Ep. 56: The Salem Witch Trials, Pt. 1 - The Accusers

    We've finally come to our long promised two-parter on one of Carrie's pet interests, the Salem Witch Trials!

    In 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, tensions were already high. The Puritan colonists were struggling through the "Little Ice Age" devastating their crops, paranoid about being attacked by neighboring Native American tribes, and quarreling with their minister and each other about who the most godly of the bunch really was. The atmosphere was rife for backstabbing and tragedy, and that tragedy was about to hit in a horrific way.

    It began with whispers, and would end with screams. Was the root of the Salem Witch Trials the hysteria of a group of young girls? Was everyone completely zonked out from ergot poisoning? Or had Satan himself really infiltrated this infighting colonial town? Join us, as we explore the whole unbelievable story of the Salem Witch Trials in the next two episodes.

    Ep. 55: Werewolves!

    Ep. 55: Werewolves!

    Halloween is SPOOKY SEASON, and Sean is kicking us off with a howlin' all-werewolf episode! We take a whirlwind tour of the mythology and history of werewolves (including skinwalkers and the Rougarou) before tackling real life monsters like Gilles Garnier and modern manwolves like the Beast of Bray Road. 

    What horrors lurk under the full moon? Where do these werewolf legends come from? And why are these badass beastie boys always playing second fiddle to uppity ol' vampires??

    Ep. 54: John Dale Cavaness - Murder in Little Egypt

    Ep. 54: John Dale Cavaness - Murder in Little Egypt

    Dr. John Dale Cavaness was a beloved small-town doctor and respected member of his community, so there was a public outcry when he was accused of murdering his own son, Sean, for insurance money in 1984. It didn’t come out until his trial that Cavaness had murdered ANOTHER of his sons seven years before. And that's not even including the double reckless homicide before that! 

    Sean chips past the “respectable” doctor's exterior to the monster Cavaness’s family knew, and Carrie marvels at the sloppy hubris of this double filicide.

    Ep. 53: Jamestown Cannibalism - America's First Horror

    Ep. 53: Jamestown Cannibalism - America's First Horror

    Jamestown, Virginia was the first successful English settlement in North America (for the first UNsuccessful one, go check out our episode on Roanoke) - but it came close to failing completely many, many times. The worst of these failures being the tragic Starving Time.

    Plagued by a deadly combination of famine, disease, and an enemy Native tribe, the Starving Time in winter 1609-1610 almost wiped out the entire colony, leaving only 60 survivors from the original group of 500. And some of these desperate survivors were forced to commit one of the most horrific acts imaginable to live...cannibalism.

    In 2012 archaeological proof was finally discovered that confirmed what some historians had suspected all along: the Jamestown survivors ate their fellow man during the Starving Time. This week, we take a trip back in time to this deadly winter, and debate if we'd be able to make these terrible choices ourselves.

    We also have a super-sized news segment this episode with 2 stories on True Crime Time: the second part of the strange saga of South Carolina's blue-blooded Murdaugh family, and the tragic disappearance and murder of Gabby Petito - a case that is still unfolding as we record.

    Ep. 52: John Titor, Time Traveler

    Ep. 52: John Titor, Time Traveler

    In 1998 - then again, in 2000 - our world got a hero, born of another reality. A man who traveled through time to warn us of coming catastrophe. Or, maybe, just one more Internet meme spun out of control.

    A man calling himself John Titor first faxed Art Bell's Coast to Coast AM program, then later posted on several online message boards. Titor claimed to be a military time traveler from the year 2036, and he told a story of our near future full of war, disease, famine, and catastrophe.

    Of course, none of those things came to be. But could that be because John warned us? Sean takes us through the fascinating, convoluted and often incomprehensible story that still fascinates corners of the Web today.
