Jack’s back and this time he’s taking us inside one of the most infamous haunted houses in Colorado, the Croke-Patterson Mansion.

But don’t take our word for it, lend us your ears, At the Fire.


Episode 33: Freak Accidents

We all have an idea of how we expect to live our lives, what we plan on doing each day, and even anticipating what’s next. What we don’t ever think about are the random occurrences that throw our lives completely off course. Terry pulls up a seat to tell the story of the unlikely friend his son made while recovering from a traumatic car accident in the hospital and Bernice reminds us why sometimes you’re not so safe just watching movies at home. We’re talking freak accidents, ghosts,...

Episode 29: Abandoned - Breaking and Entering

There’s good reason they tell you to stay out of those abandoned buildings. You could slip, fall, hurt yourself, run into a squatter that could be dangerous.

Episode 25: Music Mystery Tour

That feeling when your favorite song starts coming through the speakers and everything else fades into the background. It’s just you and the music. Like a kind of hypnosis, the power music has over us is almost spiritual or even supernatural. But, couldn’t music also be crafted to produce a more sinister effect? What if it was wearing down your psyche and making you to do things you otherwise wouldn’t? We’re talking music, hidden messages, and mind control. All tonight, At the Fire.


Episode 24: The Fast But Mostly Furious

A car is more than a vehicle that takes you from one place to another. Every time you get behind the wheel, you’re putting your life and your passengers’ lives at risk. Do you ever think about the risks you’re taking outside of hitting a car, an animal, or even a person? What about other drivers with a serious case of road rage? What about stalkers that learn every unique detail of your custom ride? Sometimes it’s better to just brush it off and drive your standard minivan, slow and steady.

Episode 21: Cults - Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

Usually when the topic of cults is brought up, we’re taking a look inside at the members, their practices, and their beliefs. While all of that can be, and often is, truly disturbing, we don’t get to hear much about the interactions we’re more likely to have with cults - when their world just barely grazes ours and they walk into our everyday lives. Guest storyteller, Jack, joins us to share his experience with a cult living in his neighborhood growing up. We also share the story of one...
