    IN THIS WEEKEND DARK ARCHIVES EPISODE FROM DECEMBER 09, 2018: An 11-year-old boy experiences the extraterrestrial in his own back yard. *** Floating white mist, pink orbs, ghosts, and more – and they all reside in Fiddletown, California. *** Charles E. Peck was killed instantly in a horrible 2008 Metrolink commercial train accident, but before anyone knew he was dead, his family members received 35 calls from his phone for several hours following the disaster. *** A museum has hung a chair from the ceiling, specifically to keep people from sitting in it. Not because they are afraid it will break – but because they are afraid the chair will kill you.

    IN THIS DARK ARCHIVES EPISODE FROM DECEMBER 08, 2018: This episode has three stories of the creepypasta genre. Unfortunately, the original show notes have been lost to some type of internet interdimensional sinkhole, so they are not available, and neither is the transcript; but the audio is still intact, which means I can still share it with you.

    IN THIS ARCHIVE EPISODE ORIGINALLY AIRED DECEMBER 1ST, 2018: Nuns that meow like cats, people who can’t stop laughing maniacally, an entire high school begins twitching… even the Salem witch trials. Just a few of the 8 cases of mass hysteria I’ll be sharing with you. *** January 7, 1950, events began in what became one of the strangest disappearances of the middle twentieth century – the vanishing of a West Point cadet. *** Visitors to Calke Abbey have reported a strange atmosphere of sadness and foreboding and many have reported being scared by the sounds of a tin whistle. *** We’ve all heard of the Bermuda Triangle – but there are strange, anomalies worldwide – and one in Russia is known as the “M Triangle”. *** As far back as the 19th century, a hairy monster has been frightening guests of an Irish castle. *** When living in a home built in the 1800s, it might be expected to have something paranormal living with you.

    IN THIS ARCHIVE EPISODE ORIGINALLY AIRED JANUARY 02, 2018: The Czech Republic is one of the most haunted countries in the world… and one of the most haunted locations in the country is “the Green Lobster Hotel”. *** Does your dog bark at seemingly nothing? Perhaps it’s not nothing after all. *** Could a ghostly fiddler in the woods be luring children to their doom in the United Kingdom? *** Emilie Sagee had a spectral twin – a doppelgänger – but it was different than any other “seeing-double” story you’ve heard. *** The Myrtles Plantation is considered one of the most haunted places in all of America – but even stranger is the evidence given to support the claim. *** Could parallel dimensions actually exist? I’ll give you eight reason to consider the possibility.

Love the podcast, hate the commercials.

Love the stories, voice and overall feel and mood! Would give the podcast itself 5 stars, but the constant commercials brings it down to 3.
