Over the past few months, I've really began to feel something stirring inside me. Usually that means a trip to the doctor, but this time it was different. I don't get a lot of feelings towards things, and I don't think I've ever had a "connection" with anything either, then seemingly out of nowhere, I had the sudden urge to look up owls, and everyt…
 
Back in Ontario in the 1940's a young couple eloped, they went on their honeymoon at a lovely cottage on a stunning lake, and lived happily ever after... Well, they did for about 8 days anyway until the bride, Christina Kettlewell was found dead in just 9 inches of water. And because we're looking at it, there's gotta be some crazy twist, right? Na…
 
I'm sure we've all had the sense of De Ja Vu, where we swear we've experienced whatever's going on in the moment before. But have you ever had that feeling with yourself? That's a weird question, but to put it bluntly: have you ever seen yourself? Maybe it was in passing, maybe you were taking a stroll down the street and you spotted something a li…
 
Here we are with the conclusion of the mysterious death of Marilyn Sheppard. When we last left off Sam had been tried and convicted of the murder. However, in 1966, roughly ten years into his sentence, he was released on appeal with judges all over the world basically saying he didn't get a fair trial because of the media circus involved with the c…
 
The answer to the rhetorical title is... Maybe? Shockingly, this case has nothing to do with his doctoring abilities and everything to do with the murder of his wife, whom he may or may not have killed. But, I'm getting ahead of myself here. Samuel Sheppard and his wife Marilyn were a married couple back in the 1950's, that is until one night after…
 
Back again this week with another true crime case for you, and like most of them, this is rather strange one. It involves 18 year old Joshua Maddux, an outdoorsy kid who enjoyed a good hike through the woods in his hometown of Woodland Park, Colorado. However, one day during one of these walks, young Josh never came back home. There are quite a few…
 
Every so often I come across a case that's truly upsetting. I've covered the highway of tears and the Beaumont Children in the past, and those were really terrible, of course. This one though is just as bothersome. Jeanne Van Calck was just 8 years old at the time of her death in 1906. There are two aspects that makes this case upsetting, the first…

Part two, and the conclusion to the Charles Walton murder case is finally here! I mean, we can't really call it a true conclusion as it's an unsolved case. BUT, it marks the end of our look into it anyway. So what do we have this week? Well, we look at some suspects, and the potential witchcraft involved. Yeah, that caught your attention, didn't it…
 
After a few episodes away from the usual stuff, we're back this week with yet another true crime mystery! Like most of the interesting cases out there, this one takes place in the past, in 1945 to be exact and involves an Englishman by the name of Charles Walton. The thing that makes this case interesting is that some believe it to have some witchc…

Bradley has a storied history in the world of horror, and his podcast, Hellbent For Horror, has made a fan our of Guillermo Del Toro. It's been nominated for several awards as well, and it's just a treat to listen to. Beyond the pod…

Her TikTok has blown up over the last few months, garnering over 82k followers since just December of 202…
 
No, we're not talking about the alcohol, so you can relax ya filthy animals! Geeze, the first mention of booze and you turn into a frat boy on Saturday night. No, we're talking about something much cooler and way older than the drink, gin. We're talking about the Jinn, a near pre-historic entity that features heavily in the Islamic, and pre-Islamic…
 
Okay, somebody did, and that's the whole mystery here. Somebody stuffed the body of a woman in a wych elm tree in a field in England in the early 1940's. Yes, way back in the days of World War II, a single murder took hold of a county in England, despite what was going on around them. The story goes that 4 boys were out looking for birds nests in t…
 
And she was never seen alive again. Yes, you read that right, little 13 year old Carrie Ann Jopek was just 13 in 1982 when she got sent home from school for wandering the halls without a pass. It was suspected that she did this to attend a party at her best friends house. I still don't know why a 13 year old was throwing a house party at 1 in the a…
 
Alright, so we've been covering a lot of depressing topics lately. Serial killers, true crime, and all that real life stuff can get to ya after a while, so today I thought we'd get back to our roots and take a look at some folklore, something nice and light hearted; so let's talk about the women and child luring shapeshifting water horse who used h…
 
And he never came out... Or he did? Either way, he was never seen again. Yeah, the story of Brian Shaffer is an interesting one. The story goes (cheat notes version), is that he was a med student who went bar hopping with a couple friends the night before he was meant to leave for a spring break vacation with his girlfriend. However, once the end o…
 
Despite sharing 2/3rds of a name with rock legend Gene SImmons, the two couldn't be further apart. One worshipped demons, one was a rock god, and one had a tongue that legends were made of; the other, well, he was a straight up demon, a vessel for pure evil, a man who killed 16 people, including his entire immediate family. Yeah, so buckle up for a…
 
Last week we took a short look at Robert Pickton and what he'd done. It was brief, and we didn't cover all the details I wanted to, so this week we spend a little more time on the crimes of Pickton, his trial, and of course, most importantly, his victims. These serial killer episodes are always a bit love hate for me. Sure, like most people I find …
 
Yes, when you think of Canada, you probably think of friendly faces, maple syrup, and the phrase "Eh." But what doesn't come to mind is serial killers. Well, I have some news for you, we up here in the great white north have our fair share of bloodthirsty killers, and today we'll be talking about one by the name of Robert "Willy" Pickton. This "hum…
 
We are back this week with a topic I've wanted to cover for quite sometime; the strange phenomena of the Black Eyed Kids. Back in 1996 a journalist, Brian Bethel, had an encounter that left him with an unsavory taste in his mouth. He couldn't explain what happen, only that it had, but what he could recall was shocking. Bethel's account featured a n…
 
I'm back! I know, it's been a while. This episode has been kicking my arse. When I was contacted about my thoughts on the astral planes, I became curious and jumped right in. However, I was a little overwhelmed by how much research there's been on the topic, and so I did my best to take the best bits from a ton of different sources and condense it …
 
Going through some past episodes, I realized that we've covered a lot of beasts. To be fair, the term beast can be attributed to any number of terrifying things, so I don't feel too bad. Nevertheless, this character is a real piece of work. Edward Paisnel has hints of Albert Fish in the sense that he was a disturbed man who preyed on the young, and…
 
... And they all vanished. Hell of a punchline, eh? Well that's exactly what happened in December of 1900, three men were at their lighthouse post on the Flannan Isle, Thomas Marshall, James Ducat and Donald MacArthur, when one stormy night they all mysteriously vanished into thin air. There was never a trace of these men found again. Of course, yo…
