IN THIS EPISODE: (Archive episode, originally aired May 25, 2018) Witch hunts and panic among communities are nothing new, but what happens when cyberspace intensifies the frenzy? (Marina Joyce, Witch Hunts, and Internet Hysterics) *** Little girls often play with stuffed animals and invite invisible friends to their play tea parties… but one young girl’s birthday gift of a tea set came with its own imaginary friend. (The Tea Set) *** Behind his quiet demeanor of a seemingly timid baker in Anchorage, Alaska lurked a skilled hunter – and his favorite prey was women. (Robert Hansen: The Butcher Baker) *** On April 3, 1860, the legendary Pony Express began carrying mail between St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. In October, 1861 – a short eighteen months later it ceased operation. Not only did the Pony Express die, but so did many of its riders. Do they continue to ride today, as phantoms? (Do The Ghosts Of The Pony Express Still Ride?)
