    IN THIS EPISODE: It has several names all over the world such as the Bogey Beast, the Black Shuck, Hairy Jack, Padfoot, Striker, and more. But a phantom black dog by any other name is still a phantom black dog. (Phantom Black Dogs) *** Dalton Highway is already a scary road for those driving down the ice-covered highways of Alaska. The loneliness on the barren stretch of highway can go on for hours without seeing a single soul. But for one ice road trucker, that solitude would be interrupted by something terrifying and unexplainable. (The Terror On Dalton Highway) *** Hunters come across a strange note left behind by someone who claimed he’d been stuck in the wilderness for over a week and was out picking berries, but the hunters soon realized there was no one out berry-picking, for the person who wrote the note was already dead – and had been for over two weeks. 
(Into The Wild - The Death of Chris McCandless) *** Sometimes drugs can work too well – for example, a hair-loss prevention drug could turn your own children into hairy wolfman-like monsters! (Drugs Turn Babies Into Werewolves) *** The dark practice of body snatching was a lucrative business, committed by those with a strong stomach and a willingness to disturb the dead to turn a profit. (Body Snatchers) *** High in the Himalayas is a mysterious lake with a very grisly secret. (What’s At The Bottom of Skeleton Lake?) *** Megalodon died out millennia ago. But our fascination with this mighty shark will never go extinct. We are so obsessed with this ancient leviathan that people still claim to spot Megalodon even today – but that couldn’t be, could it? (The Return of Megalodon) *** Megalodon isn’t the only creature of the deep people report sighting. For centuries a denizen of oceanic monsters have allegedly been seen – but the question is whether or not they are fact or fantasy. (Sea Myths or Sea Monsters)

    IN THIS EPISODE: Stories of “feral men”–people who live wild in nature as any animal would do–have been a part of our myths and legends since the dawn of civilization. But they don’t live just in ancient lore… according to the reports, they are being seen even today, despite the modern and technological world surrounding them. (Wild Men In The Hills) *** Witchcraft, torture, and a man selling his soul to Satan. Not exactly the kind of events you typically expect before a wedding. (The Devil’s Agent) *** In 1974 the Smurl family began a 15-year period of terror by an unknown entity. (The Smurl Family Tormentors) *** Weirdo family member John Parish discovers something strange going on in his home’s wood shop. (Woodworking Ghost) *** One of the problems with cryptids such as Bigfoot or Sasquatch is that they leave very little evidence behind of their existence. Their cousin the Yowie leaves even less evidence behind – on the verge of none. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t any evidence. (Tracks of the Kempsey Creature) *** Creativity is usually admired by those who experience it, reveling in the joy and artistry a creator puts into his work. But when a serial killer decides to get creative, the only one who feels joy is the killer himself. And thus was the case with H. H. Holmes. (America’s Most Creative Serial Killer) *** Did an American serial killer’s reign of terror reach England? One man believes so. In fact, he believes his great-great grandfather was the one and only Jack the Ripper. And that man was H. H. Holmes. (American Ripper)

    IN THIS EPISODE: Stephen King’s Christine made for one hell of a terrifying book and movie, but what if there really is a car so haunted, so possessed, that its known for killing dozens and dozens of people? (Phantoms Behind The Wheel) *** A recent widow discovers she’s not alone after all. (The Ghost I Know) *** Is it possible that the human soul has actual weight? One doctor tried to prove exactly that. (The Weight Of The Human Soul) *** Fifty years before Roswell was the reported crash of a flying saucer in Aurora, Texas – and it remains as much of a mystery today as it was then. (The 1897 UFO Crash in Aurora, Texas) *** What would cause a father to have his daughter arrested for a non-violent crime? We’ll make our way back to September of 1880 for a story of forgery, murder, and suicide. (Forgery, Murder, and Suicide)

    IN THIS EPISODE: it’s #CreepypastaThursday, and I’m back with another audio novella of sorts. It’s a story from Riley Vanderlip called, simply, “Wonderland”. With a title like that I almost skipped it entirely, but then I saw that after more than 100 ratings on the Creepypasta.com website, it had a higher than 9 out of 10 rating. And that always gets my attention. Hopefully it will get yours as well.
