Join me for the Weird Darkness LIVE SCREAM on Halloween night at 6pm Central Time! I’ll be telling stories live on-camera outside my house with Halloween decorations, spooky music, and interaction with the trick-or-treaters who stop by! http://www.WeirdDarkness.com/LiveScream
IN THIS EPISODE: Life in Victorian times was considerably more dangerous than now, if the newspaper reports of the time are anything to go by. (The Art of Dying in Victorian Times) *** It’s easy to a consider single witnesses of a big hairy creature as mistaken or confused, or even fraudulent, as if a practical joke. But add a second witness to the same sighting, and suddenly the encounter becomes a lot more believable. (The Creature of Coffs Harbour) *** Did Mother Damnable—aka Mary Ann Boyer, Seattle’s original taskmistress —really turn to stone after her death in 1873? (The Madam Who Turned To Stone) *** Ufology might seem like a fringe science — but it’s a fringe science our government knows all too well. (Project Blue Book)
