Episode 42: Fairy Tale - St. Patty's Day Special

3/16/2021
When you hear the word, “fairy”, probably the first thing that comes to mind are cutesy, dainty, little winged things, painting flowers and annoying their animal neighbors with their relentless happy songs and jingly bells. That, however, is not what a true fairy is. That is the modern story-book variety. The fairies of old, the real fairies, are something quite different. They are often dark in nature, with a fondness for tormenting humans.

Episode 41: The Bavarian Necromancer

3/8/2021
They were known as the necromancers of Bavaria, and were said to be members of the sparse elite. These were, before the war, the members of society who were not only literate, but literate in Latin.

Children who are not mindful of their parent’s rules can be stolen away by the La Llorona. La Llorona is a ghostly legend, that like most...

The Baba Yaga

7/31/2020
There’s something fun and thrilling about a good spooky tale. Whether you are a child or an adult, those are the ones that your mind (whether you wish it to or not) will revisit over and over. Fairy tales are a good example of this, as most are quite dark in origin. They are full of wicked things lurking in the shadows, things which stalk about waiting for the right moment to seize and often feed upon those who unwittingly cross their path. The reason these stories are so delightfully dark...

Nostradamus

7/10/2020
The one thing universal thing about humanity’s relationship with the future is that we all wish we had some insight into it.

Justice From Beyond

5/21/2020
When it comes to modern story-telling, it’s quite the over-used trope – the ‘who did it to me’ mystery, where the departed influences an investigation in order to reveal the details of their murder – bringing to justice the unsuspected killer. However, when it comes to folk lore and legends involving ghost stories, it is a theme which appears time and time again, a theme which is essentially as old as time. In fact, when it comes to such stories, it is almost unavoidable. It seems that...

Instrument of War

3/5/2020
For all of history, magic has often been employed by those in power, in attempts to secure political positions, admonish enemies, fuel war and its desired outcomes, and alter the state of countries and even entire civilizations. In some way or another, magic and the occult has been a force quietly at play in the shadows, used by those in power, and it always seems to play a role in the wars they so often try to bring about.

Dead Ringer

1/23/2020
Throughout history there have been an overwhelming number of people who have met the fate of being buried alive. It’s no surprise that taphophobia, the fear of being buried alive, is still something that creeps into our collective consciousness. It skates about in the shadows, a nightmare scenario that still even to this day has some merit. An entrapment that there is often no escape from.

Strange Waters

1/16/2020
There is no shortage of tales of haunted waters, of small patches, where the waters seem to be in a constant state of unrest, waters which seem eager to swallow up any vessel which crosses over. Its appetite unsated. Waters so tumultuous where even their sunken collections seem to be at unrest, where spirits haunt and ghostly ships set sail. Waters which many swear to be cursed.

Winter Solstice

While the winter solstice was often a time of feasts and celebration, many of these celebrations were in part to counter the negativity which lurked about during these long dark nights. It was a time for magic and ritual, a time to balance out negative forces at play, and a time when protection was needed. In Western culture, many of our winter holiday traditions have origins in these magical solstice celebrations – especially those celebrated by the Celts and Vikings.
