Apparently, the experience can prove to be lethal.

Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: North Carolina’s Great Dismal Swamp is full of horror stories – but the worst might be the fact that the swamp appears to swallow people alive. (Swallowed Alive In Great Dismal Swamp) *** A weeping man called the police to tearfully apologize for murdering his victims… but that didn't stop him from continuing to kill again and again. (The Weepy Voiced Killer) *** In Hindu culture, it is believed if certain post-death rituals are not conducted on those who have passed away, the deceased’s family would not prosper and there would be misfortunes aplenty. One family in Bhutan had to learn that the hard way. (The Stoning Ghost of Sombek) *** An apparent incident involving a “gigantic cigar-shaped UFO” somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean in May 1963 wasn’t reported for almost 20 years, when a witness to the event finally came forward through a written letter of the incident. (The Atlantic UFO of 1963) *** In a beautiful little town in North Wales, children ran through the graveyard, searching for little men with big eyes and long ears. They were searching for strange fairy folk – the ‘brownies’ of Bangor. (The Brownies of Bangor) *** Serial killer Ed Gein was caught and arrested for his crimes in November of 1957 – but that didn’t mean Gein’s neighbors would see the end of his influence on their lives.

Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: It’s been said that the average person walks past at least sixteen murderers in their lifetime. A chilling thought. But when you know that a serial killer is on the loose, you look at each stranger you meet as a potentially dangerous encounter. And right now in the UK they have a serial killer still at large targeting easy victims… the country’s elderly. (UK’s Senior Citizen Serial Killer) *** While the Spiritualism Movement caught fire in the 1840’s with the Fox Sisters and stayed fairly strong for some time, after the 1920s most of the teachings and those soaking it in began to dwindle. Strangely though, there seems to be a kind of resurging interest in one particular man’s writings here in the 21st century. Many are intrigued by the “secret teachings” of Manly P. Hall. (The Secret Teachings of Manly P. Hall) *** In May, 1987, Kenneth Parks walked into a police station and confessed, “I just killed two people; I've just killed my mother‑ and father‑in‑law.  I stabbed and beat them to death.  It's all my fault." Case closed, right? Well no… because it appears he might’ve been sleepwalking when he committed the murders. (The Sleepwalker Defense) *** When the body of Elva Shue was found next to her bed, it was assumed to be an accident. But her spirit refused to rest until someone investigated further. Her ghost was crying murder. (The Ghost That Solved a Murder) *** Clarita Villanueva was orphaned before she was teenager. With no one to care for her, Clarita began living on the streets of Manila, dancing for money and prostituting herself to degenerates. But things were about to get even worse for the poor girl… demonically worse.

“URBAN LEGENDS, TRAGEDIES, AND HAUNTINGS OF ROCK & ROLL” #WeirdDarknessPlease SHARE Weird Darkness with someone who loves paranormal stories, true crime, monsters, or unsolved mysteries like you do! Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: The mythos of rock and roll music started as soon as Elvis and his swiveling hips hit the stage. But with a powerful mystique comes stories, legends, and myths—some of them true, some of them true but exaggerated, and some of them just plain made up. Others are misconceptions passed down through the generations, despite never being true. These are the most persistent urban legends and rumors in rock history, with an emphasis on the rock myths that are a little more unknown. Sure, you know about Phil Collins and the drowning man, but did you know that despite wearing dark glasses all the time, Roy Orbison was not actually blind?

Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: There are many legends from Nebraska involving supernatural entities, but one of the eerier accounts out there is the story of Nebraska's haunted “L Street”. According to legend, seven women were murdered on the road in the 1900s. Ever since, the road and surrounding hills have been a rumored hotbed of paranormal activity. It's labeled as "L Street" on the map – but locals call it “Seven Sisters Road. (The Terror of Seven Sisters Road) *** The restaurant is a bit dated with the servers wearing old-fashioned black and white aprons. The food was incredible, the place was spotlessly clean. It’s definitely a restaurant you’ll want to visit again when you pass that way again. Unfortunately, the restaurant won’t be there… because it never was. (The Restaurant That Disappeared) *** They say chivalry is dead, but that was not so in 1875. Standing up to someone on behalf of your wife was not only common, but expected… even to the point of murder. (Tragedy At Vineland) *** Hawaii’s MacKenzie State Park boasts beautiful scenery, pleasant weather for outdoor activities like hiking and fishing, and is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. But when the sun goes down, MacKenzie Park reveals its truth… it is extremely haunted.

Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: When you hear the name “Transylvania” the immediate image in your mind is probably that of Dracula. But this Romanian town has more creepiness than just the Count’s castle – it is also a hot spot for UFO activity and mysterious unexplained happenings. Some even think it could be the location of a portal to another dimension. (Is There A Dimensional Portal in Transylvania?) *** Sightings of unidentified flying objects might seem like a recent phenomena, with most reports occurring in the 20th and 21st centuries. But UFO sightings go a lot further back in human history – and our ancient ancestors were just as shocked, confused and sometimes terrified, as we are today.

Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: The idea of a person changing into a wolf, or shape-shifting into some type of animal or cryptid is mostly confined to the authors of fictional horror. But not all societies and cultures are so quick to label shape-shifting as make-believe. (Shapeshifters And Therianthropes) *** In the 1960s, Brian Leathley-Andrew investigated and reported on numerous cases of strange objects in the sky, trying to get to the truth of what people were seeing. But when sinister events began happening to him, he knew he had to walk away from his career in Ufology – or the government might make him go away. (UFO Hunter Becomes The Hunted) *** A man goes off for supplies, leaving his wife behind to tend to the home in his absence – but not only did he never come home with the groceries, but a ghost story grew out of it. (The Ghosts of Hunger Valley) *** Saying the disappearance of David Glenn Lewis is bizarre doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. What started out as a strange missing person’s case would eventually be resolved. But the answer that would come would pose even more questions, proving the adage that “truth is stranger than fiction”.

“UNSOLVED MURDERS AND FOOTBALL HAUNTINGS” #WeirdDarknessPlease SHARE Weird Darkness with someone who loves paranormal stories, true crime, monsters, or unsolved mysteries like you do! Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS DARK ARCHIVES EPISODE FROM FEBRUARY 2016: It's the curious details of a murder case that transfix true crime obsessives. Some have elements that are particularly violent, bloody, gruesome, and unsettling. Worse, some slayings remain unsolved, meaning that the perpetrator continued to walk among us after the deed was finished. From the famous Black Dahlia murder and America's Jack the Ripper to a body found in a tree and a weird note left before one German man’s disappearance, in this episode I’ll share several mysterious, unsolved deaths that will chill you to the bone. Plus, I remembered earlier today that a few years ago I produced an episode that had football hauntings included. It’s been a while but I found the audio and I thought, with this being the week after the Super Bowl, it might be appropriate to share it with you again. So we begin with a few true football hauntings!STORY SOURCES AND MUSIC CREDITS…“Chilling Unsolved Murders” from The Line Up: https://weirddarkness.tiny.us/foyleo4o “Football Hauntings” by Giancarlo Ferrari-King for Bleacher Report https://weirddarkness.tiny.us/2o64vefa, YourGhostStories.com (link no longer available), and Sports Planning Guide: https://weirddarkness.tiny.us/1ivxxh5l Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

“THE CURSING OF CHRISTOPHER CASE” and More True Paranormal Stories! #WeirdDarknessPlease SHARE this episode with someone who loves paranormal stories, true crime, monsters, or mysteries like you do! Telling others about Weird Darkness helps make it possible for me to keep doing the podcast! IN THIS EPISODE: A man is found dead, fully clothed, kneeling in his own bathtub. The position of the man’s body and where he was found is strange enough – but what happened to Christopher Case before his death is stranger still. (The Cursing of Christopher Case) *** In Norfolk, England the village of Eccles was slowly gobbled by the rising waters of the sea in the early 1600s. But even today, sometimes during a particularly heavy story, you can see St. Mary’s Church mysteriously reappear… bringing with it, the dead buried in the church graveyard who cannot find rest. (The Disappearing And Reappearing Village of Eccles) *** Lory Price and his wife Ethel mysteriously disappeared from Marion, Illinois. But then, sometimes that happens when you are mixed up with the mob or may have learned something you weren’t supposed to. (The Vanishing of Lory Price) *** The Catacombs of St. Callixtus in Rome, Italy, hold the remains of sixteen popes, several martyrs, and around half a million Christians, and according to on author, a not-of-this world entity. (The Callixtus Catacombs Entity) *** Before he became a Civil War general, Congressman Dan E. Sickles' scandalous murder trial changed our legal system forever. He said outright that he had killed his wife’s lover. So how did he avoid being found guilty of the crime he admitted to committing? (How A Congressman Got Away With Murder) *** In 1150, two children were found near Woolpit in England – they wore strange clothes, spoke oddly, but the most identifiable characteristic for both children was their skin was green. The children themselves were a mystery – but what happened when they grew up? Did they marry? Did they have children? Could there be decedents of the green children of Woolpit living among us today?

It took me so long to realize "turning off the light" was a pull chain, not a wall switch.

I was really invested into this one. such a shame the story was abandoned. It definitely would make for a good book.

I absolutely love this podcast. Darren is so personable, and the positive messages are great. I only have one ongoing complaint. For the love of all that's holy, put it in the description when you use an archived episode!!! So frustrating downloading several episodes for the day and realizing later you've heard them all! I completely understand that life happens and sometimes you need to use old material. Just label it that way!!

Actually didn't know he said Gyarados till he said pokémon. and I remember seeing dragon turtles in DND as well. I like how many of these creatures are mixed in with popular culture
