“WORKING FOR H2O” (PARTS 1 & 2) #WeirdDarkness #CreepypastaThursdayIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: Last May, Weirdo family member Sarah Faith sent a story that I narrated called “Working for H2O”. It was a short story, but there was a lot of feedback on it, to the point people were asking if there was a sequel. Well… now there is. But for those of you who have not yet heard the first story, I’m including it here first – and then after the break I’ll return with Part 2!

“WHY ARE YOU SO POSSESSED WITH ME? #WeirdDarknessIf you like the podcast, please leave a review in the podcast app you listen from, and share a link to the podcast on Facebook and Twitter to invite others to become Weirdos too!IN THIS EPISODE: It’s April 1st, All Fools Day! Rather than doing a prank episode as many other podcasts will likely do today, I thought I’d take a slightly different route and instead tell a story that fits the day and is both dark and comedic. It’s a tale created specifically for this April Fool’s Day episode; written by Mary Eitzenberger. Adapted from an original story by Nicholas Paul Pontoski. It’s called, “Why Are You So Possessed With Me?”

I play the lead role, Dr. Joshua Colden, who is thrust into the middle of a frenzy of fear and press activity after a cosmic event unleashes a new age on Planet Earth, where a few humans suddenly find themselves with unique powers that could destroy all mankind. In the aftermath of the cosmic event, “Project Cascade” is created – and it may be our only hope to keep humanity from extinction.

Did she commit suicide? Despite her death in 1889, we still don’t know how Maggie Hourigan died. (The Mystery of Maggie Hourigan) *** In 1958 Gavin Gibbons wrote a children’s science-fiction novel By Space Ship to the Moon, which featured a UFO landing on Moel Sych in the Berwyn Mountains of North Wales. Sixteen years later, in a surreal case of life imitating art, those very same mountains would again be the focus for a story involving a downed UFO. But this time, some said, the story was for real. (The UFO Case That Refuses to Die) *** Greer Island, a small patch of land close to where the West Fork of the Trinity River flows into Lake Worth, is heavily shaded by tall oaks, cedar elms and cottonwoods. One of the quietest spots in Fort Worth, the island is home to egrets and owls, perhaps an alligator or two. And maybe, just maybe, the Lake Worth Monster. (The Lake Worth Monster) *** In 2017, Washington State Senator Karen Keiser was quoted as saying, “The incidents continue, they continue, and we have to consider that there is potential cosmic life over the island… it’s a very special place, with a cosmic presence.” What exactly happened on Maurey Island in 1947? (The Maurey Island Incident) *** Whether you’re a true believer or one of those skeptics, stories of spirits haunting the living from the confines of a Ouija board can chill you to the bone, and make you think twice before communicating with entities from another dimension. (True And Disturbing Ouija Board Stories) *** What if creatures like gnomes and imps aren’t just real – but also evil?

So why is this 85-year-old building bursting at the seams with spirits and specters? The answer to that is not any easy one to give.  (The Haunted Smethwick Baths) *** They look strange, there’s a weird otherworldliness to them, when encountered people often find the’ve lost hours of time with no memory, and the beings are often known to abduct people in the middle of the night. It sounds like I’m describing alien abduction – but the same, all of it, can also be said of fairie folk in European legend. Is it possible there is a connection? Could the mythical fairies of old actually be the extraterrestrials we tell stories about today? (The Extraterrestrials Want Twinkies) *** Elsie Eiler pays taxes... to herself. She grants her own liquor license to herself for the tavern she owns – which is possible when you are the mayor… and bartender… and law enforcement, and even the librarian.

(Sentient Fireballs and Biting Lights) *** Cattle sometimes die suddenly on Silvies Valley Ranch’s 140,000 acres in Harney County — struck by disease or felled by a broken leg and unable to find a way out of the rugged, forested terrain. But by the time ranch hands discovered four more dead bulls within 24 hours, they knew they were likely dealing with deliberate, premeditated killings. (Oregon Cattle Mutilations) *** To quote one survivor of a near-death experience: “I know of no English words for the combination of joy, ecstasy, love, and requited longing that burned within me. It carried me to a dimension I never knew existed. In that moment, there was no pain of loss, only unity, rapture and reunion.” Is it possible that we may soon have scientific evidence for what lies beyond the veil? (New Evidence of Life After Death) *** Seeing specters in the reflection of a mirror or piece of glass is not just a cliché movie trope. There is a history that goes along with the happening. (Ghost In The Mirror) *** We’ve all heard of haunted forests – but there is one that is so disturbing it drives some people to want to commit murder! (Where The Woods Entice You To Murder) *** When it comes to ghostly apparitions, the White Lady are ubiquitous. But a theater in Sunderland, England has not just a White Lady specter, but also the haunting Grey Lady… and the ghost of a comedian.

I love this podcast but I completely disagree with this one. I've seen Paradise Lost all 3 movies and I believe those boys where set up. I still love this podcast ...hey you can't always be right.

look up "skuttle fly" or "coffin fly". The second is known to breed in open wounds.

that Let Me In story gets me everytime. I think I've listened to it a good 6 or 7x over the last month. I think because of the creepiness of it all and the intensity delivered. plus I facepalm the fact she let it in.
