    Episode 14: Poltergeists

    Everyone's had things fall over next to them that's made them jump. But could it have been caused by a malicious spirit? Today we're going to take a look at "noisy ghosts," or Poltergeists, as they're better known. I'll talk to you about their history, skeptic theories, and read you two stories from listeners that will make your skin crawl. Be sure to give this one a listen!

    Have you had an experience with a Poltergeist? Send it in to the podcast email, along with any and all suggestions for future episodes!

    Episode 13: The Appalachian Not-Deer

    Episode 13: The Appalachian Not-Deer

    That was a deer you saw, right? Just a regular, normal, average deer. The one standing on two legs. With forward-facing eyes. Yeah...for sure! Today's episode is all about the Not-Deer, a cryptid found throughout Appalachia. I'll discuss some of the descriptions and possible explanations for the Not-Deer and read some stories sent in by listeners. This one will definitely have you double-guessing that deer you saw last night!

    Have you seen a Not-Deer? Do you live in Appalachia? Send in your stories! I'd also love to hear any suggestions for future episodes that you may have.

    Episode 12: Robert the Doll

    I'm back with another haunted object! You may have felt that your toys had a mind of their own when you were growing up. For most of us, this was a great sense of imagination, but for Robert Eugene "Gene" Otto, this was reality. His doll Robert (named after himself) got up to a lot of mischief and still does decades after Gene's death. Join me this week as we find out more about the crazy story of Robert the Doll.

    Have you visited Robert? Do you have an experience with a different haunted object? Send me an email!

    Hydrocephalus is a medical condition where there is excess fluid in the brain. It's one of the more common birth defects that can now be treated thanks to the wonders of modern medicine. Today's story, however, is not so nice. Left untreated and uncared for, these hydrocephalic children ran to the woods and started a life of mystery and intrigue. Join me this week for a story specific to Michigan, Ohio, and Connecticut!
