Radio broadcaster and parapsychologist Dr. Malcolm Ryder helps callers with their supernatural problems. He also delves into the dark and strange history of America. Callers are haunted by mysterious black doors, see ancient beings in their paisley wallpaper, have terrifying creatures appear in their cars on dark and lonely roads. In the history segment of our show, Ryder tells of the pyramid made of flesh in Palta, Arizona that appeared one morning, of how the Mississippi River is a sleeping leviathan, and of the last known sighting of the dark dealmaker, The Traveling Salesman.

    Coming in early 2022, Ravenswood: Descending Days.
    All his life, Andy has seen countdowns on everyone he lays his eyes on. Numbers that tell when they'll die. He came to Ravenswood University to find a way to turn this ability off... but something's wrong at Ravenswood. And only Andy can see it.

    Patreon UNLOCKED: The Cartography of Shadows

    Over on Patreon, we wrapped up our first series, The Cartography of Shadows. We're unlocking the first episode to give our regular listeners a taste of what they're missing.
    In this series we explore a book compiled from maps and journal entries from a cartographer who disappeared in the 1890s and whose body was found many years after. Many call the book "the Rosetta Stone of the Supernatural."
    Hope you enjoy.
