The Ghost of Emily Keseg
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan's first story is based in some true crime - the 1969 unsolved murder of 18-year-old college student Emily Keseg in Cicero, Illinois. Has her ghost haunted the campus of Morton College ever since? Then,  to the Santa Fe National Forest. What could explain a collection of sightings and strange disappearances around the three locations of the Holy Ghost Campground, El Camino del Diablo, and the Pecos Wilderness?  Is there a portal to some other dimension or world in this area? Lynze shares a very intense story about the legend of the Kunduz and then follows up with a lighter, but still spoopy tale from a haunted train ride! New Merch:  We have a bunch of bad ass Valentine’s Day cards over at BadMagicMerch.com  Each set contains 18 foldable valentines cards featuring 6 unique illustrations.

City Of The Dead
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan kicks off with two big stories today. Heading to Japan for the first one, to visit a Ghost Island. A very unique place. This one had us all twitchy! And then, we stay in Asia but travel all the way to Afghanistan to cover a collection of supposed sightings from some US Marines. Some really INTENSE sightings at a place once known as Observation Post Rock. Lynze presents us with a new horror character we have yet to meet, the pichal peri. What kind of creepy experience is there to share! And then, a death in a hotel room connects two people who quite possibly were never meant to meet. Is a ghost bringing them together? You decide.New Merch:  You asked for it and it's here. Official DJ Honey merch in store now featuring me, DJ Honey.

The Howling Village
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. The first story Dan will be sharing takes us to the Fukuoka Prefecture of Japan  to explore lore around the urban legend of the Howling Village. And then we’ll explore the legend of the Basano vase! Did these supposedly cursed object bring death to one owner after another for two separate cycles of tragedy separated by centuries? Is it made up? Or does it lie underground again, waiting for a new owner to find it, and to start another cycle of terror? Lynze has two awesome stories this week, per usual! Her first tale explores an experience  amongst friends and an Ouija board. While we never truly know what we might be talking to on the other side this one feels like a very authentic encounter with a lost loved one. Or is it? Wrapping up the show is a haunted house, more specifically a basement, tale. Is a 6th sense something that can be passed from one generation to the next? Let's explore! New Merch:  Incredible valentine's card set featuring some amazing spoopy illustrations. Each set contains 18 foldable valentines cards featuring 6 unique illustrations.

A Mother's Love
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan's first story is set in Portland, Oregon, centered around Portland’s underground “shanghai tunnels.” There are miles of tunnels underneath Portland that connect it to the Willamette River - once used to transport goods in and out of the city and to ocean going ships. These tunnels also, SUPPOSEDLY, were used for human trafficking. Sailors getting “Shanghai’d” - kidnapped and forced to work at sea. Women getting forced into prostitution and shipped around the world. Some think this stuff never actually happened in Portland, others think it was frequent. Let's see what is out there. Then for Dan's second tale, the Cherokee legend of The Raven Mocker - a strange, evil spirit and the most feared of the Cherokee witches.  Lynze has two stories for you this week! First off, a tale that is sad but also heartwarming. A mother may have made a call from the great beyond to save the life of her child. Then a shared haunting, a screaming nun and a dorm room that just doesn't feel quite right. SUMMER CAMP!!!! CAMP!!! Wet Hot Bad Magic Summer is a GO!

The Monkey's Paw
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan is  bringing back our annual Holiday Horror tradition.  For Victorian England, December was the spooky spooky season - not October - and this is where our Western tradition of telling ghost stories to scare one another comes from. Friends and family gathered around the fire after a nice holiday meal to hear some horror. And in honor of that tradition, for the fourth year in a row,  Dan shares the tale, The Monkey's Paw by W. W. Jacobs.  But first up, some horror from modern England.  A married couple bring their young son on a vacation to the countryside, where he finds some occult objects stashed away that lead to a terrifying evening and an early end to the vacation.  Lynze kicks off with a kind of sweet, kind of Christmas story. Then she tells us three quick hitter stories, all from the same person and all from the same frat house! New Merch:  Continue to support us and show off your favorite STDP gear!

The Key Of Solomon
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan has a story about a couple teens who grab hold of an old book of occult summoning spells to start the show. They seemed to have opened a door that should’ve stayed closed. Then he shares with us  another story featuring some true crime basis. Convicted killer, Gary Mark Gilmore, was sent  to death row for a murder he never even tried to hid. Could it be because his mother brought something dark into her life, and then into her family’s life, before he was ever born? Lynze has her usual two tales. She begins with a life long attachment tale and then wraps out the show with a possessed teddy bear tale! New Merch:  Head on over to badmagicmerch.com and grab your holiday gifts! Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation:the 2022 Bad Magic Giving Tree has come to a close.

This is a somewhat recent true crime story that  leads to numerous reported paranormal encounters. Very creepy story. Then,  a bit of tragic lore revolving around rural Colorado’s Third Bridge aka Ghost Bridge - and some reports of modern encounters there as well.

The San Pedro Haunting
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan's first story, the San Pedro Haunting is intense! A very active entity terrorizes a young mother, her two kids, and anyone else who shows up to help them. The next story is about the mysterious disappearance of a MASSIVE ship during WW1 - the USS Cyclops. Where the Hell did it go? We head to the Bermuda Triangle to examine this mystery. Lynze then shares two back to back haunted house tales!! One haunted apartment with the spirit of a man named Bill floating around and one little girl lurking in the shadows. New Merch:  Time to dress up for the holidays with 4 brand new ornaments featuring Santa's favorite workers. These aren't your typical happy elves however. Take a dark look at the grim reality of being overworked for hundreds of years by a controlling and menacing slave boss.

A Haunting At Kaimuki House
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan jumps off the episode with a giant, weird tale. It's something new and fun to talk about in the world of “what if?” WHAT IF you were being “haunted”… not by a ghost, but by someone living in the same space as you, but living in a different time? Like a parallel dimension that someone also intersects with this dimension historical timeline wise. Someone living in the past, but also, living at the same time you live in. It’s a wild concept. The second story, much more traditionally scary, one of Hawaii’s most haunted homes. The Kaimuki House. Lynze has some fun horror for us this week too!! A Veteran's Home may have more than just the Veteran's living there but who?! Then the most insane, but oh-so-probably true story of one mans alien abduction. New Merch:  What if aliens visited us for the first thanksgiving in October 1621. And if they did, what if they never left? Head on over to check out the new "Alien Pilgrim" tee and poster. Loving the 3 red eyes, shining medallion, the classic pilgrim hat. Check it out at badmagicmerch.comBad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation:And now, it’s time to announce our 4th annual Bad Magic Giving Tree! This is our chance to collectively give back to our own community! This is such a cool thing we get to do every year, it fills my heart with such joy! Like all of the previous years, we will be using the December Patreon donation to kick this off. We estimate that to be about $15k. If any fans would like to donate to the cause, as they have in years past, we are, again, only accepting Amazon gift cards, as that is the most effective way for us to shop. And just like the years past, Dan and I will be matching any and all donations y’all make up to $15K. If fully matched, we will have about $45K to work with. Every little bit helps, y’all. Just $5 or $10 adds up really quickly when we all chip in. If you can skip your weekly coffee to help out, I assure it, it really goes a long way. The average donation last year was about $50. If you would like to donate, go to amazon.com and purchase a gift card. When you fill out the box of whom to send this gift card to, simply enter the following email address: givingtree2022@badmagicproductions.com. That’s the first part, the way you can help and give to your fellow creeps and peepers!The next part is for those of you who hav been asking how to be a recipient of the giving tree. This year, we are trying to really streamline the process. It’s going to be really straight forward. Starting Monday  November 21st at 12:00 noon PT, we will be accepting applications on our website, badmagicmerch.com. THIS WILL BE THE ONE AND ONLY WAY TO SUBMIT YOUR FAMILY.We have come to the conclusion, that can we help about 50 families this year. We always receive far more requests than that and it’s a really awful process to pick names from a hat. It doesn’t allow people the chance to seek out help in a different capacity if they are not chosen. This year, the first 50 families to apply will receive help. The submission form will be live on our website until we have 50 families or until November 26th, whichever comes first. You can rest assured that if you filled out and submitted the application that you are getting help. No more waiting and wondering. Once 50 families have applied, the application will not allow anyone to fill it out.With this being a new system, we are asking you to be patient. We will receive your application and then reach out to you. We will be shopping and sending out gifts from December 1st thru December 12th. We look forward to bringing our community together once again, to love and support one another. Standup: If you want to see a very different side of Dan than you see here and possibly see Lynze in the crowd, his Symphony of Insanity standup tour will be back this fall.

Mrs. Hoingy Boingy Uff dah! Lynze has three chill inducing stories to tell today! She starts with her first two tales of haunted homes- they are similar and yet, very different.

The Beat Of The Drum
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. The setting for Dan's  first story is about a ghost said to roam the grounds of Alabama’s Haines Island Park. The second involves a trifecta of UFO sightings in Canada from 1967 that for many, are still the most concrete proof for UFOs that Canada has ever produced. Holy hell! Lynze's second story is a doozy! But first, she shares with us a slightly different tale where a fan submits a funny version of being a Darren. It's a gem of a story.

The Whistler
Dan has a story about a young boy named Cody and his imaginary “friend”  who is NOT friendly and not imaginary. Then a collection of paranormal sightings in Plainfield, Wisconsin, that all revolve around the ghosts of either murderer Ed Gein - his mother, or his victims. Lynze has the most terrifying tale of the week with the folklore of The Whistler. YIKES!  SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. The setting for Dan's  first story is a Murder Mystery party. The premiss: since everyone is in costume, what if someone there is someone you don’t know. Someone… not alive.  In his second story Dan shares the short tale of man haunted by a few weeks of terrible nights from his childhood. Lynze taps into two fears we can all relate to: dark and lonely rest stops and dark and scary basements!

The Legend of Goatman's Bridge
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan's first story is about  one of the subjects that creeps people out the most and, like with the doll story last week, it’s something we haven’t talked about much recently: Dopplegangers.  A young man has been haunted by SOMETHING at his family’s Montana lake cabin for many years. The second story is the Legend of Goatman’s Bridge. Who or what is the Goatman and how did he - or it - come to haunt a little rural area of Texas? Lynze's first story is a WILD one about a possible glitch in the matrix!! Then, with hunting season upon us, a bizarre story about a women in the woods. New Merch:  Awesome new collections in the store! Joining Mothman in the store this week is his hot sister "mothwoman". She's so dang cute, we put her on a notebook and pint glass in addition to a tee and long sleeve option. Logan put a nice little butt on her so I think I definitely need to order one of these for myself.  And we have another collection!

The Shadow and The Doll
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan has his usual two tales! The first REALLY gives goosebumps. This is the most wicked haunted or cursed or possessed doll we’ve come across so far! Next, we’ll head to the Appalachian Trail and look at a couple examples of uncomfortable and frightening encounters with dark figures that not only have been reported to watch hikers, but also to kidnap and attack them. If you believe these reports to be true, this story is gonna make you think twice about any hikes  you may have planned. Then Lynze has two really awesome stories to tell this week! Going in the theme of being out in nature, she shares the story of a couple camping and being disturbed by some mysterious entity? creature? ghost? Finishing out the episode, she tells us the tale of a kind, sweet man who is also a skeptic who is then possessed and is skeptic no more. New Merch:  SO CUTE!!! The new Cute Cryptids Collection is now available for your little creeps and peepers. 4 unique monsters that are in fact, quite adorable. Did you know Logan even named them? Clarence, Milton, Lawrence, and Oscar! We also have an acid tie dye tee with all 4 for you adult creeps and peepers, if you want something monstrous to wear… but NOT terrifying.

Right Ghost, Wrong Man
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan had two really fun haunted house types of tales this week. He kicks it off with a haunting at The Moana Surfrider hotel in Waikiki. It would appear that a death that took places many, many years prior has resulted in a female ghost hanging around. When a male visitor stays at the hotel, it would seem she thinks he is someone else. Mistaken identity gone wrong! Then in his second tale, we encounter a new set of Darren's in the Lee Family Haunting. Lynze also has her usual two tales. A clown haunting that spans from childhood to adulthood and possible demonic attachment, but not how you'd think! New Merch:  Amazing new Tall Man collection in the store now!

The Elevator Game
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan's  first story is about South Korea’s The Elevator Game. Is this nothing more than an urban legend? Or could this modern encounter story I’ll be sharing possibly be true? Could performing this elevator-based ritual somehow allow you to enter what sounds like Hell? The next story  is the legend of The Curse of Ca’Dario. A Venetian mansion, built in the late 15th century, that might actually be cursed or at least extremely haunted.  Lynze will explore predictive dreams, a concept that seems to rarely come up on STDP, in her first story.  It's hard to know when dreams are telling us the future or predicting or are just coincidental. The final story of this week is a creepy cabin tale. A man takes some time away from his life to find himself but does he find so much more than he bargained for? New Merch:  A new GTFO doormat requested by a handful of you actually. This is one we'll definitely want pictures of soplease be the weird person that no one wants to talk to, and grab yourself a new STDP doormat at badmagicmerch.com and then post a pic and tag @scaredtodeathpodcast on IG and FB.Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: This months charity donation is going to Camp Easton, a boy scouts camp here in CDA.

The Boo Hag
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan kicks off this episode of Scared To Death with the lore of the Boo Hag or the Old Hag Syndrome. Is this a terrifying experince that can be explained away by sleep paralysis or is it more sinister than that? Then we are headed to the border for a collection of short stories about various encounters with spirits and sightings.  Lynze finishes up the show with a tale of one woman's connection to the other side as it pertains to her co-habitants at the nursing home she resides in. She also has a tale about dreams and what may come to us in our dreams- is it real or is it a shared experience or is it just a dream?New Merch: Amazing new merch in the bad magic store this week.

The Hamburger Man
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. The first of Dan's stories is a very strange urban legend that someone posting a modern encounter story thinks is all too real. The strange, twisted legend of Kansas’s Hamburger Man. For the second story, we explore the rich paranormal history of Cornwall, England’s Bodmin Moor, focusing mainly on the old Bodmin Jail located at the edge of this large, preserved, mostly undeveloped land expanse of land. Lynze shares two spoopy tales too! Her first one explores the age old concept of making a deal with the devil. It's a bizarre tale and will make you scratch your head, for sure. Finishing out this weeks episode is haunted college campus. We haven't a haunted campus in quite some time, this one is fun!New Merch: Catch the brand new Monster In The Mist tee, available now at badmagicmerch.comBad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation:This months charity donation is going to Camp Easton, a boy scouts camp here in CDA.

The Succubus In The Mirror
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. The first tale Dan has is one that scared Dan and Lynze more than any other story has  in awhile. It’s a story about what seems to be a particularly deadly cursed object.  It’s a random tale from a random forum - no real documentation with it.  The second story shows up all over the place. The lore of the Toronto Tunnel Monster. Does a cryptid - or do multiple cryptids - dwell in the elaborate and massive system of tunnels that lie beneath Toronto? Lynze is back to to her two usual tales, sort of. The first story is actual two from the same person. A young girl seems to be in touch with the other side and two tales, one of astral projection and one of premonitions show examples of the this girls connections to the other side.New Merch: Thanks to everyone who picked up a copy of the Fan Stories Collection Vol 3!

The Dentist's Wife
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.The first of Dan's stories this week is the more documented of the two. Dan will be taking everyone to the late 1930s, and to the Greater London area of England, to examine the haunting of Alma Fielding. In 1938, Alma Fielding, a 34-year-old housewife in Thornton Heath, a southern suburb of London, went to the press complaining of a poltergeist having invaded her home. Many, many people witnessed intense paranormal activity centered around Alma. The second story is the tale of a 19th century South Carolina woman who seems to have suffered an incredibly tragic death when she was accidentally buried alive. Does the ghost of Julia Legare still haunt her family’s tomb on Edisto Island, South Carolina? Lynze's portion of the show is made up of four small stories: a skin walker, a ghost, a self driving school bus and the woman in the mirror! Enjoy! New Merch: Super cool new Swamp Monster tee in the merch store this week. It features a rather large hairy beast with red eyes, lurking in the dark forest shadows, a very dark and moody depiction.

Woman By The Lake
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Dan has some fun in store this week! One tale is a little more traditional, and packed with a lot of good scares, and one that is very, VERY strange. The first is the story of  Lake Morena Campground, in Campo, California. An area of the outdoors that has been rumored to be haunted for decades. I’ll share some lore and an intense modern encounter story. The second story is the sorcerers of Chiloé . In 1880, on an island off the coast of Chile, several residents were convicted of belonging to a secret society of warlocks using black magic to intimidate and in some cases, even murder. The trial uncovered some very, VERY strange local lore involving monsters, wizard duels, and ghost ship, and more. Lynze and her fan tales take us back to The Crescent Hotel with an odd tale of exploring what lingers there. Then in her last story, her fan story is surrounded in grief and sadness but who said the spoops couldn't also be sad.  New Merch:  LISTEN CLOSELY BECAUSE IF YOU ARE HEARING THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU NEED TO HUSTLE YOUR BOOTY ON OVER TO BADMAGICMERCH.COM RIGHT NOW TO GET YOUR VOLUME 3 BOOK OF SCARED TO DEATH FAN STORIES!!!

Underneath The Asylum
 SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan has his normal two tales this week.  The first is the story of East Bethany, New York’s Rolling Hills Asylum. He will cover its history, haunted lore, and a more detailed and disturbing encounter tale involving a former employee and patient. Then, we go one state over, and a couple hundred years back into the past to tell the story of Elizabeth Knapp’s supposed demonic possession in Groton, Massachusetts in 1671-1672, two decades before the Salem Witch Trials.  Lynze will share three tales this week! Her first one is about a man in a window that will have us asking if the house is haunted or the people inside of it.  Then the hat man pops in for a visit! And then, just for fun, less of a story and more of a confirmation picture!  New Merch:  LISTEN CLOSELY BECAUSE IF YOU ARE HEARING THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU NEED TO HUSTLE YOUR BOOTY ON OVER TO BADMAGICMERCH.COM RIGHT NOW TO GET YOUR VOLUME 3 BOOK OF SCARED TO DEATH FAN STORIES!!!

Boy Outside the Window
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Dan has one of the most terrifying stories he has had in a while. Four residents of a memory care clinic die under rather suspicious circumstances in close proximity to one another and all after seeing a little boy with black eyes outside their window. Then in his second story,  we go with Dan as he explores the haunted tales of the rooms at the Battery Carriage House Inn. Lynze has one big tale this week. It all seems to start with a disgruntled family member who may have placed a curse upon another family member. The sighting of the hat man would be the first confirmation that more than one family member is seeing things they had not seen before. The plot thickens from there!  New Merch:  New Undead Tee hitting the Bad Magic store this week. Cool looking zombie/mummy creature on a black tee.
