    Episode 74 - The Poison Pill Murders

    Whenever a bad storm is on its way, I feel it.  It has always been that way…I start getting pain behind my eyes, and if I don’t take medication I end up with a bad migraine.  My doctor told me that there are many people who are just like me, and we are considered to be human barometers.  Many times all I need to do is take a single Tylenol or Advil, and the problem is solved.  But what if I took that pill, and it was tampered with.  This is what happened in 1982 when several people took Tylenol without knowing that someone tampered with them.  They were laced with potassium cyanide.

    Episode 73 - Poltergeists

    Episode 73 - Poltergeists

    The word poltergeist is a German word that stands for noisy ghost or spirit.  It is said to be responsible for physical disturbances and turmoil.  Many claim that poltergeists are capable of physical abuse like hitting, pinching, or tripping people as well as moving objects, and making noises like knocking on doors.  They traditionally are described as troublesome, and they haunt a person versus a location.  


     


    Even though the name of these entities have been tagged to Germany lore, some variations of poltergeist activities are found in many different cultures.  Early claims of spirits attacking and harassing their victims date back to the 1st century, but the name of poltergeists only started to become more common in the early 17th century.  Some believe that tales of poltergeists are only hoaxes, and some others think that it is just illusion, memory lapses, or wishful thinking.  But for some, this is a very real and terrifying reality.

    Bonus Episode 19 - Legendary Sea Monsters

    Humanity has always been fascinated with the ocean, and even today - we are not entirely positive what lives in the waters that cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface.  So it should be no surprise that storytellers throughout history have populated these waters with all sort of monsters that are ready to wreck havoc on sailors at any time.  Some of these mythical sea monsters are said to be so large that they can lay waste to entire cities with ease, while others are no bigger than any other creature in the seas.  The thing they all have in common is that they have captured human imagination since the tales of these monsters started to be told.

Entertaining

I find this podcast entertaining, but i really struggle with the narrators inability to pronounce words or names correctly (for example “drowning” she pronounces it “drownding” It drives me crazy! Honestly Its distracting. Or any time she tries to pronounce Massachusetts. The stories are good, and interesting, but she often uses incorrect wording and punctuation that makes it confusing while shes speaking. For example she will say something like “due to that the man left before anyone could see him” which maybe should be said “due to the fact that the man left before anyone could see him.”

Great

I’ve never been a fan of horror movies, but I’ve always liked real life horror stories. This podcast tells a lot of those stories, and Brenda is a very good host. She deserves a 5 star review.
