    Goatman's Bridge

    Goatman's Bridge

    On this week’s episode, we are continuing our adventures in Texas with my buddy Rayne and this time we are going to the infamous Goatman’s Bridge. This is an incredibly sad and dark story, full of racism, demons, and even child murder so be prepared for that. I feel like the story of Goatman’s Bridge has exploded in popularity in recent years and it seems like every ghost show or youtuber or podcaster has done an episode on it, so here’s ours! I’m curious, who guessed it from my incredibly difficult clues? Be honest! Anyway!

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

    Screaming Bridge

    Screaming Bridge

    On this week’s episode, I’m taking you to the Screaming Bridge in Arlington, Texas, a creepy out of the way spot known to the locals as a place to hear disembodied screams from long dead teenagers who died on the road. Local legend states that some kids were out celebrating a football game win one night when they collided with each on the bridge. This seemed reasonable enough for me since football, especially high school football, you know, all of that Friday Night light stuff, is a big deal down in Texas. Apparently the area is now imprinted with the kids dying screams and legend has it that if you stare into the river where the car went in at midnight you can see the graves of those killed. This was all I knew about it going into this adventure. I’m doing something a little different this time. This time I’m going to be giving you the history, and then as an extra special treat, I will have the one and only Rayne on to discuss our adventures. I even have a little bit of video to share on the website.

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

    The death and ghosts of Stede Bonnet and Blackbeard, inspired by Our Flag Means Death

    The death and ghosts of Stede Bonnet and Blackbeard, inspired by Our Flag Means Death

    On this week’s podcast I am telling you about ghost pirates. As you should all know by now I’m a giant nerd and one of my newest obsessions is Our Flag Means Death on HBO starring Rhys Darby, who I would leave my husband for, and Taika Waitka as the pirates Stede Bonnet and Blackbeard. Some people might not realize that these were real guys! I feel like everyone has heard of Blackbeard from the 5 million pop culture references out there like Ian McShane in the Pirate of the Caribbean franchise and apparently Hugh Jackman in Pan. I need to go watch that apparently.

    Bonnet is less well known. Growing up I had a pirate phase, I mean who didn’t, and I remember reading about the Gentleman Pirate. He wasn’t my favorite. I kinda lumped him with the likes of Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye and the classic poor little rich kid archetype and I honestly hadn’t thought much about him since. And then I found out Rhys Darby was in a pirate show and I needed it in my life more than anything. Our Flag Means Death puts a comedic and romantic spin on Bonnet and Blackbeard’s relationship that made me care a little too much about these characters. And as I’m watching the show I couldn’t help but wonder if there’s ghost stories associated with them and of course there is! So I did some digging and honestly Bonnet might be one of my favorite pirates now! That being said, what happens to these guys is pretty rough so maybe prepare yourself for that. I actually teared up researching this one.

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup

    Lafayette Vampire

    Lafayette Vampire

    Ok so this week’s episode was suppose to come out 2 weeks ago but that’s when the death happened so it’s happening now. This week I’m talking to the wonderful Candace Ó Fearáin-Black of the Julian Black’s Arcane Vampire Ball. We are talking about a Colorado vampire legend. Candy has told me this story before but this is the first time we really got to dig into it. And since its semi local we are planning on going to investigate it soon.
    For those in the area you might know that the Arcane Vampire Ball has already happened. In fact, Candy and I talk about it alot in this episode. I heard it was a really great event. I highly recommend you all come out next year. Julian is hosting the The Colorado Springs Vampire Soiree this weekend. This Saturday. Definitely check that out if you can. It’s only $10 to get in and it’s going to be a lot of fun!

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

    Burying Point Cemetery

    Burying Point Cemetery

    On this week’s episode I am finishing off the Salem episodes with a little trip to Old Burying Point Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Salem and the second oldest cemetery in the nation. This is the quintessential colonial cemetery, 400 year old hand carved tombstones, big leafy trees creating long shadows and whose old roots are starting to push tombstones over. It’s immensely beautiful! And incredibly haunted.

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

    Ropes Mansion in Salem, Massachusetts

    Ropes Mansion in Salem, Massachusetts

    On this week’s episode we are continuing the Salem episodes with The Ropes Mansion. It is a gorgeous, two storied, white colonial mansion with cute little gabled windows. Its close to downtown Salem at 318 Essex Street.

    The Ropes Mansion housed 4 generations of Ropes family members that lived and died within it’s walls. It saw happiness and a lot of tragedy, which makes sense why it’s one of Salem’s most haunted house, and it’s not even connected to the Salem Witch Trials. It might look incredibly familiar to those that are fans of the disney cult classic, Hocus Pocus. The Ropes Mansion exterior was used as Allsion’s house. Remember the part when Max and Dani are trick or treating and they get into a fight and she goes and cries in the hay bale and Max has to make her feel better and they are in front of that gorgeous home, yep that one.

    So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

Pleasant Host Spooky Dreams!

I love this podcast! Angela is so sweet and welcoming making me comfortable for really scary subjects. Sometimes I find myself pausing an episode and waiting for morning to finish it. If you’re looking for an authentic paranormal podcast then look no further!

Befriending ghosts and ghouls

Angela invites a wide array of guests onto her show, which allows me to learn about hauntings and stories I had never heard of before. She begins by delicately crafting the scene with historical background before interviewing her guests, which allows me to really feel like a part of the story. This construction of her podcast makes the stories all the spookier, as I imagine myself walking down haunted hallways or getting locked into basements! I really enjoy that this podcast focuses on the experiences of her guests, rather than third-person research into a subject like many other podcasts I listen to. This makes me feel like I’m speaking with them, in a group of friends, sharing tea and scones and ghost stories. It’s unique, classy, informative, and spooky. I look forward to hearing from many more guests as this podcast continues.
