IN THIS EPISODE: I’ll tell you about the sad death of John Sellers, which teaches us that if you must pass from this earthly realm, at least be considerate enough to do so in a way and at a time that is the most convenient for those around you. (A Case of Criminal Neglect) *** In October you can find haunted house attractions on just about every street corner, with a multitude of themes – haunted asylums, ghost hospitals, zombies in cellars, and hell houses. But in 1905, visitors to Coney Island were treated to a different kind of Hell attraction all year long, not just in October. It was a boat ride that, for the cost of one dime, was meant to literally scare the hell out of you. (Coney Island’s Hell Gate) *** What type of person raises a young girl, telling everyone she is their daughter, and then years later marries her? That’s just part of “The Disturbing Story of Sharon Marshall.” *** A man wakes up one morning to find his entire family has been handcuffed – and the paranormal is to blame! (Ghost Handcuffs Family) *** It has happened to all of us. Something will disappear, and then come back later or relocate to somewhere else before we find it again. It could be car keys or a wallet, or maybe an important paper. Why does this happen?

Her story is terrifying. (The Romanian Poltergeist Girl) *** When you become a celebrity, you expect certain individuals to go past being fans and into being fanatics. Even stalkers.

IN THIS EPISODE: The Warren Commission concluded in 1964 that the same "magic bullet" that struck President Kennedy then also proceeded to slice through multiple layers of skin, bone, clothing, and muscle tissue, taking a strange and unbelievable zigzag pattern… lending credence to the single shooter theory. But many thought the idea was ludicrous. Now it appears the magic bullet theory may not be as crazy as it sounds. (The Truth Behind The Magic Bullet Theory) *** Reports have been coming in for centuries even through modern times of a creature in the Congo that, by all descriptions, looks to be a living Diplodocus or Brachiosaurus. They call it Mokèlé-mbèmbé.

(The Stikini Vampire) *** The Native American Iroquois are terrified of a flying demonic creature that takes pleasure in tormenting their people – just for kicks. (The Flying Head of the Iroquois) *** Native Americans have wonderful legends of a powerful and magnificent Thunderbird that was sent by the Gods to protect humans from evil. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t terrifying. (Shapeshifting Thunderbirds) *** The Hopi Indian tribe encountered what they called the Maasaw – a living skeleton that was not only horrifying, but also gifted the Hopi with sacred knowledge. (The Skeleton Man of the Hopi) *** Many Native myths and legends deal with coyotes – for some it is the most sacred of all animals. For others, it is the most profane of animals. (Legends of the Coyote) *** Did the Comanche Indians defeat a race of white, red-haired giants? (White Giants) *** The Illini people have had numerous encounters with a mysterious dragon-like creature that existed thousands of moons before the pale face came.

But there is another reason to avoid the marshes and swamps… as they contain evil spirits and demons. (Swamp Demons) *** Those who venture down one particulary eerie New Jersey roadway report restless spirits, a haunted lake, and glowing orbs of light. (Shades of Death Road) *** Did an extraterrestrial invasion take place in Bowling Green, Kentucky? One woman insists it did. (Aliens in Kentucky) *** They arise from the ocean like a small army, and they can kill with a single look into your eyes. Beware the spirit ranks… the night marchers. (Deadly Stare of the Night Marchers) *** If the dream world feels just as real as the waking one - at least while we are in it - how can we know for sure that we’re not currently living in a dream, a dream from which we may one day wake up? (Is Life a Dream?) *** Always mocked for his size, Don Gaskins was intent on getting the last laugh… and hitchhikers were his preferred victims.

IN THIS EPISODE: Learning of other races and cultures has been something man has sought knowledge of ever since they first discovered other races and cultures existed. But that’s the thing – you have to know those races and cultures existed in the first place. And there is one race known as the Oghar that very few know about – and it has been practically wiped from history. (Mystery of the Oghars) *** Lakes are often scenes of brutal crimes and dumping ground for murder victims, but you don’t often hear of the lake itself being the murderer. But one lake killed 1,700 people… in a single night. (The Lake Exploded) *** Imagine moving into a new home only to realize it already has a resident ghost living there – but not only that, but the ghost enjoys having full-blown two-way conversations with you through the walls. (The Beastie In The Walls) *** In 1593, a Spanish soldier named Gil Pérez claimed he traveled over 9,000 miles in just a few seconds. Supposedly he disappeared in Manila and appeared in Mexico. Is there any truth to the story, or evidence to back up his claim? (The Man Who Teleported) *** If you are a fan of the Neverglades Mysteries series that I’ve been releasing once in a while on Creepypasta Thursdays, then you’ll want to listen through the end of the Chamber of Comments because there’s a little piece of news about the Neverglades you might like to hear. *** A strange sighting took place in 1970 in Hiroshima Prefecture – and the way it’s described, it sounds like Japan might have it’s very own Sasquatch! And now, decades later – that beast might save the town it was spotted in.

Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: People keep reporting sightings of a giant five-foot long worm lurking in the Gobi desert. Witnesses say it’s armed with spikes, it spits venom, and if you get too close it can even take you down with an electric shock. It’s known as the Mongolian Death Worm. If you’ve not heard of it, it’s because no one to date has yet been able to photograph it. So does that mean it doesn’t exist? Or is it just too fast to capture on film? (The Mongolian Death Worm) *** Mount Pentelicus near Athens, Greece, is where the marble was cut to build the Parthenon. But more recently it has a more sinister reputation – for being haunted. Particularly around a certain cave known as “Davelis Cave.” (The Penteli Cave Enigma) *** Do you have people in your lives that you can’t stand? A co-worker perhaps, or a family member, or a grumpy neighbor. You may call them “toxic”, but there was a lady who was so noxious that people couldn’t literally stand her. Her name was Gloria Ramirez. (The Toxic Woman) *** For six years, Fritz Haarmann used his position as a police informant to hide in plain sight while he carried out at least 24 grisly murders as the "Vampire of Hanover." He was also called by some “The Butcher of Hanover”. But neither nickname given to him by the public comes remotely close to describing how evil the man truly was, or how gruesome his crimes actually were.

Thank you for sharing the podcast with others and growing our Weirdo family! IN THIS EPISODE: Seances and spirit boards have a long history in cultures around the world, however, not every attempt at communication with the afterlife goes as planned. Even experienced mediums may run into an unpleasant spirit from time to time, and those who have no experience whatsoever may find themselves overwhelmed by a strong-willed entity with an inclination to do harm. We’ll look at numerous examples of seances and Ouija board sessions that went horrifyingly wrong, one particular demon who seems to show up more often than others that should scare the hell out of you, and later in the episode we’ll look at the flip side of seances – the ones that aren’t real at all. We’ll talk about masquerading mediums, imitation investigators, and dubious demonologists. Perhaps this episode will serve as a cautionary tale to leave the dead to rest in peace.WANT TO ADVERTISE WEIRD DARKNESS OR BE A SPONSOR?Weird Darkness has partnered with AdvertiseCast to handle our advertising/sponsorship requests.

IN THIS EPISODE: Weird stories about Area 51 almost all stem from the belief that the government is most likely hiding UFO technology or aliens there. You probably know most of your Area 51 knowledge from movies like “Independence Day” or television programs such as “The X-Files”. But what about the real world? Are any of these stories based on truth? (Tales and Legends of Area 51) *** Weirdo family member Alex shares how fleeing an abusive father brought some comfort from an unexpected source. (Guardian Angel) *** Soon after her disappearance, Dorothy Jane Scott's family began receiving chilling calls from an unidentified caller.  (A Killer Calls) *** Classes are now back in full-swing for college students, and many high school juniors and seniors are already in the process of choosing a college to attend in the future. But after hearing about some haunted college campuses, you might choose to change your mind about your chosen universities… or change your major to parapsychology.

IN THIS EPISODE: The idea of the werewolf has been with us for a long time – the first mention of a werewolf that we know of is over two thousand years ago. We’ll look at the origins of the werewolf, look at whether they are actually real, and if so, how one goes about becoming one, and some of the cures believed to release the man from the beast. Of course, it’s not always the Wolf-Man… sometimes it’s the Wolf-Woman. We’ll look at the most fearsome lady werewolves throughout history! I’ll tell you about the trials and punishments of those convicted of being werewolves – many probably wish they’d have confessed to being witches instead! Plus, what if I was to tell you that werewolves truly ARE real – and that a small village has been terrorized by them for decades – right up to modern day? There is convincing evidence to back up my claim!

IN THIS EPISODE: Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested and pleaded guilty; he received multiple life sentences, bringing the Golden State Killer trial to an end several decades after the murderer's bloody reign began. But the most shocking part of his story for most, even more so than the brutal and monstrous crimes, was the fact that he was a trusted member of law enforcement – a man the public was expected to trust and depend on. We’ll look at the crimes he committed… and the trial that finally put him away for good. Plus… imagine being married to someone for forty years, only to find out that person is the Golden State Killer. We’ll look at the life of Sharon Huddle, who understandably wants nothing to do with the press. Was she fooled by her husband for all those years, or did she know all along that her husband was truly a serial killer?

What's with conspiracy theory nonsense about Giants? The human skeleton can't get much bigger without serious health problems. People like Robert Wadlow or Andre the Giant were in pain throughout most of their adult lives.

I truly like the church of the undead episodes. The other episodes are very entertaining and thought provoking. Please keep up the great work you are doing. Thank you!

I can't even listen to this podcast anymore. bringing up depression every episode depresses me. not everybody wants to confront their depression every single day that's kind of a dick move. also the archive episodes are bullshit if I want to listen to an old episode I will go download an old episode.. it's gotten so confusing to sift through the archive episodes and the new episodes that I don't even listen. there's nothing worse than getting on an 8-hour shift at work to realize that you downloaded 4 hours of episode you've already listened to. unsubscribing

Very interesting. I grew up near Converse, TX! I didn't know there was a werewolf sighting there back in the day. They never taught us as kids. Perhaps it is one of those things where the entire community chooses to forget. My aunt taught me about the Donkey Lady though. Apparently, as a kid she had "dreamt" about the Donkey Lady coming to her window and asking her if she wanted to play. She remembers she looked like a tall lady with long black hair. Her skin was the hide of a donkey with the face being of a donkey as well. She remembers riding on her shoulders as she ran around making donkey noises. She thought it was a dream but when she woke up the next morning her feet were muddy and had left foot prints coming back from her window. She actually grew up near the famed Donkey Lady bridge which makes her story creepier.
