Our Editor's Take

Being a little frightened is one thing. Being terrified is another. Listeners who prefer the latter will enjoy this podcast, Scared To Death. This podcast is for listeners who enjoy spooky stories, unexplained events, and jumpscares. It is not for kids, though.

Standup comic and horror fan Dan Cummins cohosts the show with his wife, Lynze. Scared To Death will scare listeners. Dan is well known for another podcast he hosts, Timesuck. Audiences might have seen him appear on The Tonight Show, Conan, The Late Show, and Comedy Central's This is Not Happening. Lynze shares her vocal reactions to these stories when he shares them. But she's more than a bystander. She also tells scary stories and tales for audiences. The two of them record from their scary, darkened basement to add an extra bit of spook to their podcast. This is the audio version of their YouTube podcast.

They both tell true stories of hauntings, death curses, poltergeists, and serial killers. These Scared To Death podcast episodes are scary. But Dan includes his signature comedy to lighten the episodes. Each episode follows a similar theme-spookiness. But all stories are unique and true. "The San Pedro Haunting" is the first story Dan tells on the podcast. He talks about a young mother and her two children who have a paranormal experience. One of the weirdest and wildest episodes is "A Haunting At Kaimuki House." That's the most haunted house in Hawaii. Leading up to Halloween, Dan gives listeners a longer episode. "The Curse Of La Patasola" starts in the forests of Columbia. This is where a vampiric creature known as La Patasola dwells. Listeners hear from people who have encountered it and survived.

Why do haunted houses get their reputations? Is it possible for ghosts to cross time to find their prey? Do parallel universes exist? Dan and Lynze answer these questions and more in their spooky podcast. Dan is masterful at telling stories that spook his audience. Scared To Death is not for people who scare easily. It might leave some listeners a little afraid.

Lake Labynkyr Devil
Dan kicks off the show with a strange tale from Russia. A water dwelling, creepy creature that no one seems to know what it is. We join him at Lake Labynkyr. Is it just folklore? Or are some kind of leftover dinosaurs or something else living in this lake? Real-life sea serpents? Then, we go back to Wildwood, Missouri’s Zombie Road. While we once shared stories from Zombie Road several years ago - today’s encounters are all new. Or at least, new for us to share. Lynze has a Peeper friendly tale that is rather interesting and then wraps up February with a tale in Michigan about loosing time in the wilderness.    Scholarship: Round two of The Cummins Family Scholarship Fund, presented by Bad Magic is here!

Is Dorothy Home?
Dan has a murder-mystery-nightmare double header this week. I have a murder mystery double feature. The story of a woman harassed by a psychopath, both before AND after her death, was she not harassed by a psychopath, but something else? The second story is another report of a young woman being murdered under strange circumstances regarding her possible killer, and allegations of a haunting that has followed her death. Then Lynze has three tales this week! Her first involves a creepy visitor to an Air BnB in the middle of nowhere. Next up, an unexplained encounter with who-knows-what during a very private moment. And then wrapping up the episode, our fan story takes us back to the Pennhurst Asylum. Scholarship: Round two of The Cummins Family Scholarship Fund, presented by Bad Magic is here! Sort of.

The Ghost Fleet Of Chuuk Lagoon
Happy Valentine's Day, Creeps and Peepers!Dan's first story  is set in the beautiful  Micronesia. We’ll visit one person’s claim of what happened to them while doing some scuba diving amongst the WW2 wreckage of Chuuk Lagoon, a supposedly very haunted underwater graveyard. After that, we head  to Ohio, to the little town of Bellaire, Ohio, where the supposedly very haunted Bellaire House stands. Did a mining disaster and more lead to the home today being possibly infested with numerous entities? Then Lynze has two tales, per usual. Her first is a more lighthearted but still awesome haunted house story where all of the ghosts living there ban together for a common cause. He final story takes us to Vermont and the Bennington Triangle. Scholarship: Round two of The Cummins Family Scholarship Fund, presented by Bad Magic is here! Sort of.

Do You Believe Now?
Dan has two tales that have an unintentional North America indigenous peoples theme for today’s show. The first is the story of the Santa Fe’s De Vargas Street House, a story that surrounds one of the very one oldest houses in all of America. Then, for his second story we hear the lore of Spearfinger. Lynze has her usual two stories, both revolving around phones. Her first one is a somewhat comical confirmation tale and her second is creepy, creepy, creepy! Patreon Monthly Donation: More news on this month's donation coming later this month! Scholarship: Round two of The Cummins Family Scholarship Fund, presented by Bad Magic is here!

The Cooneen Poltergeist
For Dan's first story in this poltergeist double feature, we head to Birmingham, England. In the Fall of 2021, Christine Evans claims her family was brutally tormented by an intense amount of disturbing paranormal activity. And the second story is full of roughly the same activity - activity to allegedly have occurred in Fermanagh  County, Ireland over a century earlier in the story of the Cooneen  Poltergeist.Lynze has two tales, the first of which is  really wild! She shares with us a police officers mysterious encounter with a shadow person. Then its off the the swamps of Florida where we hear about a couple of friends shared experience with a creature of the unknown. Patreon Monthly Donation: We have A LOT of truck drivers in our community and as such, we have been asked on multiple occasions to consider Truckers Against Trafficking and so, that is our January donation!

The Nephilim

The Nephilim
In a strange twist, both Dan and Lynze only have one story each this week! Dan's  is a big one that takes us to Las Vegas, where we’ll learn about a lot of people who have died at the Luxor Hotel and Casino followed by a modern encounter tale from a woman who claims she had a terrifying encounter at the hotel when she stayed there  as a little kid. Then, Lynze brings us a new scary creature, the nephilim.

The Legend of the Feu Follet
Dan has two fun stories this week for you! The first is the story of a convent in Milwaukee that reportedly experienced over a year’s worth of paranormal activity in the mid-19th century. Then we hear the cajun legend of the Feu Follet,  a mysterious light from Louisiana folklore described as a mysterious and paranormal “sinister force” that leads people to their deaths.  Then Lynze gives us three tales! Her first two surround the hospitality industry and her last story is a head scratcher- is it an attachment, a haunted house or something else?! Patreon Monthly Donation: We have A LOT of truck drivers in our community and as such, we have been asked on multiple occasions to consider Truckers Against Trafficking and so, that is our January donation!

The Girl In The Painting
Dan's  first tale takes us to Riverside, California at Mount Rubidoux and the  Shadow people there!  After that, we go to Ireland. Dan will share the haunted history of Loftus Hall, supposedly one of Ireland’s most haunted places. Then, Lynze has two fun stories for you!

Still Trapped
Happy end of 2023! You made it! We'd love it if you stuck around until the end of the show to hear some insight into Bad Magic and what we do here!  Dan has his two awesome stories, the first comes from northern Nevada. We’ll visit the former mining boom town of Gold Hill and learn about all the haunted lore that surrounds its old Yellow Jacket mine. Then, we’ll head to Georgia for the heavily documented 19th century haunting known as the Surrency Poltergeist. One of the most verified hauntings in American history. Lynze has three creepy stories to end the year. Her first asks us to look at the Norse gods as a possible character that might show up in your life. Then she takes us on a journey with a truck driver and an entity that has been with him all over the country. Lastly, she shares an especially creepy tale about a haunted hotel room! SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY.

The Burned Woman
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Dan shares two awesome tales this week. The first is set just outside the little Eastern Oregon city of La Grande. We'll learn about the allegedly haunted Hot Lake Springs Hotel and a unique modern encounter tale from a journal left for guests to write about their stay. And then, we'll learn what the wonderful actress and author Carrie Fisher had to say about the paranormal before she passed away too soon in 2016. Lynze has two incredible stories! Her first explores a family history of a possible curse and then the modern haunted house encounters of some people unrelated to the family. In her last story, get the Kleenex, this one will get you in the feels. A great story of poltergeist activity that leads a mom to some valuable information about her kid.Patreon Monthly Donation: As is our tradition here at Bad Magic, Dan and I are hosting the Bad Magic Giving Tree.

The Screaming Specter
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Dan has three stories this week! His first story takes us to the UK for the story of Anne Naylor, her said demise and subsequent haunting.  Then a strange story of bizarre goop falling from the sky in Oakville, Washington. Lastly, a good old haunted house story with ouija boards and curses and ghosts!  Lynze takes this week to show us a different side of hauntings by exploring the energy left behind from our loved ones. Nothing to scary but the stories are sweet and once again, lend credibility to the overall ideas explored here. Patreon Monthly Donation: In November, we have decided to donate to The Blue Skies Foundation. The Brotallion Blue Skies Foundation is a veteran-founded non-profit dedicated to providing post-mishap support for the Army Aviation community and their families. We will send them $12,884 this month and add $1430 to the scholarship fund for distribution next year.

The Black Angel

The Black Angel
SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Dan has a mysterious disappearance and an urban legend that some think is a lot more than just a legend. His first tale focuses on the strange circumstances surrounding the disappearance of a young man in Colorado back in 2008. The second story will bring us to a cemetery in Iowa where an angelic statue has gained a reputation for not being very…. angelic. Is the Black Angel of Iowa City, Iowa's Oakland Cemetery cursed? Lynze has two great stories this week as well! She will kick it off with a bizarre and hard-to-explain story about a hot tub and a cell phone- we will leave it at that. And her second story is a banger with haunted house vibes, doppelgangers, and a jinn!  Patreon Monthly Donation: In November, we always choose a Veteran/Military non-profit in honor of Veteran's Day. This year, we have decided to donate to The Blue Skies Foundation. The Brotallion Blue Skies Foundation is a veteran-founded non-profit dedicated to providing post-mishap support for the Army Aviation community and their families. They consider themselves fortunate to be part of a close-knit community and thus see their responsibility to give back and support the families of those who have lost loved ones. They hope to honor the legacies of those who have fallen and support their families through the work of the Brotallion Blue Skies Foundation.
