SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.
For Dan's first story, we go to the little mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado, from 1892. Probably doesn’t sound too terrifying. But, just imagine dealing with the worst kinds of paranormal horror that we’ve talked about here many times in the sense of it happening in recent years, where you can go stay with relatives, or get a priest or shaman, etc., to perform some kind of blessing - but now you have no one to help you and nowhere to go. You’re just stuck - as in, snowed in a homestead cabin kind of stuck - with something evil. Then Dan shares some history and then a smattering of recent paranormal sightings from England’s very historic Colchester Castle. Lynze will share two similarly themed tales this week about little ghost boys showing up for different people in different places! What does it mean when a little boy shows up? Anything

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
"Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH."
