Spooky A S

Provincetown, or PTown, on Cape Cod is known as THE vacation destination of choice for the LGTBQ+ of the east coast. It's thriving arts scene and quaint charms make it feel like the last place you'd expect to see a monster, but in the late 1930's, locals started reporting seeing a dark shadowy giant that would leap out to give them a fright. This demon of the dunes came to be known as The Black Flash! Sharing a very similar M.O. to the previously-covered Spring-Heeled Jack of England, The black Flash was known for being more of a prankster than a truly sinister presence, but some locals swore...

Eric welcomes back Brian Toney to discuss The Most Haunted House in England: Borley Rectory!

From the 1920's through the 1940's the site was investigated by a self-proclaimed paranormal investigator by the name of Harry Price. Price claimed to have made communication with various spirits lurking in the house, but is Mr. Price legit or just another woo-woo hoaxer...

Tonight Eric tells the tale of alleged serial killer Joseph Metheny.

Tonight Eric is going over the history of what just may be the most famous means of execution: The Guillotine! Despite its gruesome reputation, the guillotine was actually invented as a more humane form of capital punishment. In fact, the man who it's named after, Dr. Guillotine, was against the idea of capital punishment and was not very pleased that the devise became so closely linked to his name. The French first made use of the guillotine in the 1790's and used it right up until 1977! In all that time, one question remained: was the guillotine actually any more humane than other forms of...

I'm going to be honest with you: this episode is ok, but it would have been better if I'd had a guest cohost. Lord knows I tried, but although many people told me how much they love 1989's Teen Witch, nobody was willing to come on and talk about it with me! Is it such a guilty pleasure??? With a special intro from the film's star, Robyn Lively, tonight I'm rewatching Teen Witch for the first time in at least a decade. Does it hold up as the cult classic it's said to be? Why don't more people go crazy over little brother Richie's performance (it's masterful)? Was I Like Boys legit supposed to...

Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Tom Cole are back and this time they are focusing all their energies on revealing the life and crimes of the world's worst yet possibly most famous psychic, the late Sylvia Brown!

 

Sylvia Browne is probably most famous for her numerous appearances on the Montel Williams talk show. She would go on and spew nonsense about angels and spirit guides and then give overwhelmingly false predictions about the future to grieving relatives of missing persons or the recently deceased. The biggest mystery is how she remained a star in the paranormal field while being so amazingly inaccurate! The woman charged over $700 for a 20 minute phone call and reportedly earned 3 million a year...

We'll look into her early life, the religion she invented, why the FBI was keeping an eye on her, the frauds she committed, and of course, her false predictions and why they were so harmful. And, master impressionist that he is, Eric will premiere his Sylvia Browne impersonation for the first time!
