“Hold Him Down!”

“Hold Him Down!”

"After having spent a night in room 314, a doctor and his wife mentioned an encounter with something paranormal at checkout one morning. The doctor had been awakened several times by a gentle tickling sensation on his feet in the middle of the night. In his sleepy state he was convinced that the comforter or the sheets were somehow responsible for the sensation of something lightly brushing his feet. But then, the final time it occurred, he looked down to distinctly see a little girl tickling his feet. He said she smiled and then vanished." Could you spend a night in most haunted city in the United States, Savannah, Georgia? Could you spend a night in the most haunted city at a haunted hotel? If you said yes, congratulations, you are 100% Creeper. Dan goes old school with two tales of haunted houses, back to back, in Savannah. The first story takes place at The Hampton Lillibridge House, which partially set the stage for Tale of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. A really bizarre story with many deaths that lead up to one final, incredibly questionable death. Then, we stay put in Savannah to hear about the children that haunt The Marshall Hotel. A beautifully restored hotel that seems to have a lot more to offer than just a place to rest your head. Be wary of rooms 214,314 414!! Lynze also goes back to her horror roots with a traditional story, telling the tale of a haunted house in Scotland. A young child has multiple encounters within their home but everything seemed friendly. That is, until one day, when the young child finds themself face to face with a floating being. After Scotland, we explore the idea of a new kind of spoop. Do you think shadow animals are possible? If shadow people are real, then why not a shadow dog? Or an animal doppelgänger?  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

We don’t have the amount yet because of recording these in advance, but I’m guessing it will be around $12,500. Very close to that if not that. I came across this foundation in the Armenian Genocide episode of Timesuck and -  in the age of misinformation, where it seems like holocaust denial and the denial of other atrocities is on the rise thanks to all these fake “truthers” out there - I think it’s very important to support institutions like the USC Shoah foundation. The currently have over 55,000 video different testimonies in their archives. Interviews average over two hours in length. Over 110,000 hours of first hand accounts from survivors of the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, the Rwandan genocide and other historical atrocities. So much harder to deny the truth when you can hear and watch thousands and thousands of survivors tell their stories. https://sfi.usc.edu/ Per their website, the mission statement of the USC Shoah Foundation is “to develop empathy, understanding, and respect through testimony.” Check out Scared to Death merch in the store! http://BadMagicMerch.com  Please rate, review, and subscribe anywhere you listen.
