Let's take a trip.

Small town, USA. This is where the pulse of the paranormal resides. There are thousands of stories and experiences out there. Some have been told, and retold hundreds of times, and some are kept hidden, known only by the people that live there; this is where we come in. We're exploring the untold, and breaking down the overly familiar. Journeying through the one stoplight towns and discovering local urban legends, myths, lore, and paranormal episodes. Researching the backgrounds and developing the voices unheard. Our goal is not to capture evidence, but rather to capture the moment and bring our listeners along for the ride.

Trip with us - Christopher Balzano, a veteran within the paranormal field, published author, and teacher, with Natalie Crist, a self proclaimed research guru.

    Episode 85…Boogeyman: There Is No Fact or Fiction

    Episode 85…Boogeyman: There Is No Fact or Fiction

    It started with an old cold case. Now, as the question of who killed Little Miss Panasoffkee dances around in our brains, only one name seems to make complete sense. Trouble is, no one talks about it.

    If there has been one boogeyman who has followed Tripping on Legends around since the beginning, it has been serial killer Gerald John Schaefer. From the Devil’s Tree to Shiloh to Rolling Acres, he’s popped in to let us know to #followthesigns. Join Christopher Balzano as he brainstorms a new project with Paradise After Dark (
    https://www.facebook.com/paradiseafterdarkpodcast/
    ) looking at a man who’s myth has been plaguing the state for over 60 years, even after death.

    Some links and homework for you leading up to the show:

    Episode 84...The Haunted Numbers

    Episode 84...The Haunted Numbers

    They show up in the signs and they motivate folklore and haunted tales, but why do we place such importance on numbers?

    Do the superstitions add up?

    Join Tripping on Legends as they go down the rabbit hole of the whole numbers and what they mean. Whether it's numerology, history, geometry, or fakery, Christopher Balzano and Ella Balzano will debate why these digits keep coming up.

Love the content but

Love the content, but I listen with headphones a lot and it’s a little hard to hear sometimes. Maybe speak closer to the mic? Im not going to lower my stars because of it. Love love love the show.

All Paws ,

Arrogant and Stupid

To call yourself “the Pukwudgie Guy” and claim any credit for spreading the Pukwudgie legend is stealing the cultural property of the Wampanoag people who were the victims of genocide by Europeans.

originalswampwoman ,

A bit hard to listen to...

The word is “and”, not “ant”. Sorry it’s annoying— ...right?
