<p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 24pt;">EPISODE 40</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 24pt;">KILLER BUNNY</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><a href= "http://www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com">www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com</a></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">To celebrate Ostara, on Episode 40 of What Are You Afraid? Horror & Paranormal Show, the hosts talk about the killer bunny! This evil Easter bunny steals your candy and eats your spleen. We didn’t believe in <strong><em>Peter Rotten-tail</em></strong> before the end of this episode. Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas celebrate the coming of spring with dark stories and songs. After the author’s usual banter, British folksinger David Walton narrates and sings a story from his home country in England—Devon in the south—about a vengeful ghost much like the banshee who takes out her broken heart on young couples. He finishes this story with a gorgeous melody he composed to celebrate this traditional British horror folktale. Phil updates the fans on his cinematic progress with a new short film called Doppelganger. Clown News returns with reports of a verified terrorist clown sighting in Pittsburgh and news of the good clowns who gather at a London church to pray and celebrate their gift of making children happy. Fox & Phil also discuss dark internet legends including the Marianas Trench deep-web and an elusive group of elites called The Cicada 3031 whose intentions are unknown—perhaps world domination if you can figure out their riddles. John C. Foster, author of Grey Matter Press’ Mister White, returns with part one of his dark short story about psychiatrists and marionettes, Talk to Leo part one, narrated by voice actress, Linda Jones. Then we enjoy a hard rock number from a Boston band called Pipe Choir with their song <em>A Dark Blue Arc</em>. John Foster returns with his first investigation of New York City’s paranormal history with­ Hart Island—ghosts of American civil war prisoners still haunt there. Phil & Fox close the show with an encounter with the EVIL BUNNY—the animal which leaves a terrible mess on the carpet. Come see if they make it out alive!</span></p>

Her story begins, as most do, when she, her daughter, her sister and childhood friend all move in together in a beautiful rustic house--their dream house, promising a bright new future. Strange events occur right away: phantom growling, weird telephone calls with no answer, children laughing in the night and dark shadows lurking—shadows with will and purpose.

At night, it is strongest.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Our British folksinger, David Walton, reads excerpts from some of Kristel’s nocturnal visits from In Stone, which is available at <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/Stone-Kristel-Smart-ebook/dp/B00FNWR04E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484907571&sr=8-1&keywords=Kristel+Smart" target="_blank">Amazon</a>.

Horror authors <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/TFoxDunhamAuthor/" target="_blank">T. Fox Dunham</a> & Phil Thomas dedicate another episode to zombies, inviting famed zombie-author of Empire, <a href= "https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5370775.David_Dunwoody/blog" target="_blank">David Dunwoody</a>, to an interview and to share an original horror fiction, Pixel. It’s another sick and twisted, festive show that ends when the undead mob devours our fat bodies, stuffed with goose and slowed from drinking too much eggnog.</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The show opens with a true ghost story, The Harford Road Horror, a #paranormal tale sent to the show from an anonymous source in Baltimore, Maryland USA. This is a classic story of the start of an inhuman haunting, and at least the occupants knew when to get out before the walls started to bleed.</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><em>I felt a presence outside the bathroom door and never felt fear like this.</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">T.

27 - DECEMBER DARKNESS
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: #333399;"><strong>EPISODE 27: DECEMBER DARKNESS</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><a href= "http://www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com" target= "_blank">www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The darkness is oppressive this time of the season, and horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return with episode 27 to explore the long nights, providing you some entertainment to get you through the cold season. They bring you a mix of #ghost stories, banter, film crafting and dark fiction drawn from all over the space-time continuum.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">After talking some cultural philosophy about the coming winter holidays—Halfway Out of the Dark—they open the show with another true ghost story told to them by Doctor Berrett Ravenhearst from Jim Thorpe, PA as part of their new segment, ghost stories of Jim Thorpe. Fox spent the summer collecting #paranormal experiences from the small mining town in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Crossed Connections, narrated by British folksinger David Walton is another story of the dead reaching out through the phone in a series of supernatural connections or coincidences. You decide.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Phil Thomas talks film making and crafting as he overcomes common problems facing #indie #filmmakers who do not have the resources of corporate studios yet want to produce professional movies. He’s working on the final edits of the short film, A Short Term Effect, soon to be released.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">They also talk about their <a href= "https://www.teepublic.com/stores/what-are-you-afraid-of">new line of t-shirts</a> available through <a href= "https://www.teepublic.com/stores/what-are-you-afraid-of">TeePublic</a>. Phil & Fox have brought in several depraved horror artists to create new designs. They’re available here for purchase along with other items such as mugs, laptop cases, cats. Would you eat What Are You Afraid Of? cereal? The hosts discuss the possibility—better with bat’s blood, not milk.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Scottish & Canadian blues artist <a href="http://wilybo.com/" target="_blank">Wily Bo Walker</a> returns with a new song from a collaboration with The Rattlin’ Bone Theatre Show—another dark R&B dirge called ‘Shoot Me Down.’</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">They close the show with another reading from the KGB Club in Greenwich Village, The Dark Ones Rise—a special recorded on location hosted by T. Fox Dunham to soon be featured through the podcast. Fox reads his potent tale of a Nazi commander hunting the last elf to cure the world of false hope, a story based on Fox’s survivor’s guilt after surviving a rare lymphoma. The Last Elf.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The show is available through all major podcast services and is on Friday nights at 9PM at <a href= "http://para-x.com/" target="_blank">PARA-X RADIO</a>.

The first ghost story, read by British folksinger David Walton, tells the tale of a ghost cat seen by the owners and patrons alike.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">This is also the first episode playing part one of the literary series Let The Dark Ones Rise—an evening of horror authors recorded onsite from the <a href= "http://www.kgbbar.com/" target="_blank">KGB Bar and Club</a> in the East Village, NYC, hosted by T.

23 - GHOST HUNT
<p><span style="color: #ff6600;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 24pt;">EPISODE 23: Ghost Hunt</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com" target= "_blank">www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com</a></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;">Recorded on location at the <a href= "http://www.fortmifflin.us/" target="_blank">Fort Mifflin</a> Paranormal Investigators Evening.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Phil & Fox traveled out to historic site Fort Mifflin this week to attend and report on one of site's public ghost hunting evenings. 70 supernatural seekers attended the Revolutionary War site after dark. Fort Mifflin is one of the most haunted sites in the country, visited by many groups of famous ghost hunters. Mifflin is one America’s oldest forts, once serving as a river fort in the American Revolution, a prisoner of war camp in the Civil War and even a refueling station in WWI. Our hosts head out, interview ghost hunters as they recorded paranormal data and gathered ghost stories about the fort.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">While at the fort, they recorded the experiences of several #ghost hunters, related the history of the fort and relayed several ghost stories reported by visitors. One tells the story of a <em><strong>Phantom Guide</strong></em> who appears to visitors at the site then gives them a brief tour of the history of Fort Mifflin when no staff member is scheduled. Another of their many stories laments a woman who hung herself. <em><strong>The Lady Screams</strong></em> so loud the neighbors call the Philadelphia Police. <em><strong>The Judge</strong></em> still holds court in the barracks. <em><strong>A Blacksmith</strong></em> puts down the hammer when you touch his tools. They tell these tales and many more as they explore one of America's most haunted sites.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">They talked with #paranormal investigators who revealed their many visitations and manifestation, plus they observed the seekers hard at work using camera, recorders and ghost boxes, drawing out spirits with simple conversation. <a href="http://www.spirtofpa.com/" target= "_blank">Spirit of PA</a> joined them to share their paranormal experiences, especially an encounter with a nasty ghost who hits with chairs. So many paranormal groups came out to talk to them about their night, sharing their findings.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Phil Thomas debuted his English folklore story called Smilin’ Jack, about a pumpkin, a scarecrow and a town’s curse. Very Halloween!

22 - GETTYSBURG GHOSTS
<p><span style="color: #000080;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 18pt;">EPISODE 22: GETTYSBURG GHOSTS</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><a href="ww.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com" target="_blank">www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com</a></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Part of our</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><span style= "color: #ff6600;"><strong><em>Countdown to Halloween</em></strong></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Horror authors <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/TFoxDunhamAuthor/">T. Fox Dunham</a> & Phil Thomas present to you a special podcast anthology of collected ghost stories from one of the most haunted battlefields in the world, Pennsylvania’s own Gettysburg. Once the site of a great battle between the Confederate and Union armies and the turning point in the American Civil War, the land has suffered tragedy and death. Such suffering echoes through time, and these echoes can be felt today through the many supernatural sightings reported by locals and visitors. Through investigation, door-to-door at times, T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas have uncovered new and old stories about soldiers lost to life but not to time.</span></p> <p> </p> <p align="center"><strong><span style="font-size: 18pt;">The dead demand to be remembered.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Mark Nesbitt – Gettysburg Ghost Folklore Collector</span></strong></p> <p> </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><strong>“It was a warp in time. A veil is parted.”</strong> Mark Nesbitt, Gettysburg Ghost historian.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">On this episode, they feature an anthology of ghost stories, so many that they let the stories speak for themselves. Mark Nesbitt, Mister Ghosts of Gettysburg, joins Phil & Fox for an interview and shares a few ghost stories that he’s collected, along with a few EVPs (recorded voices of the dead). Mark talks of his two experiences he collected: the story of a Phantom Civil War Hospital and the bleeding room at The Daniel Lady Farm. Fox also tells a story on location at Devil’s Den, based on Mark’s investigation.</span></p> <p> </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><strong>“Spirit blood appeared there and vanished.”</strong> Mark Nesbitt</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Mark also shares his theory on how the quartz in the ground records supernatural energy. <strong>Mark Nesbitt</strong> was a National Park Service Ranger/Historian for five years at Gettysburg before starting his own research and writing company. Since then he has published fourteen books including the national award-winning <em>Ghosts of Gettysburg</em> series. His stories have been seen on The History Channel, A&E, The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel, Unsolved Mysteries, and numerous regional television shows and heard on Coast to Coast AM, and regional radio. In 1994, he created the commercially successful <a href= "http://www.ghostsofgettysburg.com/">Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours</a> and in 2006, the <a href= "http://www.ghostsoffredericksburg.com/">Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tours</a><em>.</em> To arrange a candlelit tour with Mark Nesbitt’s touring company, visit this <a href= "http://www.ghostsofgettysburg.com" target= "_blank">website</a>.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Author and friend <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/Suzanne-Madron/e/B0143WAMGC/" target= "_blank">Suzanne Madron</a>, resident of Gettysburg, sends two true ghost stories she encountered: Mr. 1865 & Soldier on a Bicycle. Both stories recorded by our British folksinger, David Walton. Suzanne Madron was born in New York City and has lived up and down the east coast. Currently she resides on a house built over a Civil War battlefield in the wilds of Pennsylvania where she has been known to host some interesting Halloween parties. She has authored several novels and stories under various names.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">GHOST STORIES DOOR TO DOOR:</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">While investigating the city during a weekend trip, T. Fox Dunham & his wife, Allison Ledbetter took several photographs of the battlefields and shops and may have caught some paranormal activity. Allison sensed something in the corner of an Irish shop. After Allison directed him to the ceiling, Fox took several photos of the same spot and caught what appears to be a light or mist moving into the ceiling. Lighting effects couldn’t quite explain what they saw, nor could they identity an obvious source. Could be paranormal? Check out the photographs on the <a href= "http://www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com/2016/10/14/22-gettysburg-ghosts/" target="_blank">website.</a><br /></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">T. Fox Dunham also spoke to a shopkeeper, recording his story of the Ghost Lady in a Rocking Chair. <a href="http://gettysburgstore.com/" target="_blank">A Lil Somethin’ Gettysburg</a> is a lovely little shop with friendly owners who sell unique gifts, candles, salsas, home décor and souvenirs.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;">CUSTER’S LAMENT</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The episode ends with a special extended version available to those downloading the podcast. We play Custer’s Lament from a band based in Portland, Oregon, Velaraas from their album Gilded Age. It’s a metal tribute to General Custer who fought at Gettysburg and later died at Little Big Horn.

20 - SHADOW STALKERS
<p><span style="color: #993300;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 18pt;">EPISODE 20: Shadow Stalkers</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 12pt;"><a href= "http://www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com" target= "_blank">www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com</a></span></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Phil Thomas & T. Fox Dunham are counting down to Halloween. October 1st, they release episode 20, Shadow Stalkers, recorded with special guest host, Debi Chestnut who tells us her stories after spending a lifetime investigating the paranormal.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Debi Chestnut was born psychic and struggled with these gifts in a world that didn’t understand her. As a kid, her first best friend was a ghost-boy named Nathanial, and she lived in a supernatural world. She investigated many cases with the Black River Paranormal group and has now formed a new group, Shadow Stalkers. She’s written multiple books on the paranormal including Something Wicked, Stalking Shadows and Is Your House Haunted? She is what Fox calls a psychic healer. She mends the tears between this world and the next.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Debi talks about several of her paranormal experiences: growing up with a dead boy, fighting a demon that nearly consumed her life and putting to rest elementals in a barn that was protecting lost babies. She shares with us one of her favorite stories, The Screaming Woman, which has been narrated by one of our voice actors, about a murdered woman and her lost child in a mid-west farmhouse.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">“I could hear its footsteps, and it would hold me down in bed. Couldn’t scream.” Debi Chestnut.</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://www.debi-chestnut.com/">http://www.debi-chestnut.com/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Fox & Phil have started their seasonal spooky early, and they ventured to one of the infamous haunted sites of Philadelphia: Pennhurst Asylum. Thanks to tickets from their friend Cindy, they got in early and enjoyed this magnificent production.</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;">Check out this link from Weird NJ for its history: <a href= "http://weirdnj.com/stories/pennhurst-asylum/">http://weirdnj.com/stories/pennhurst-asylum/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">We tell another true ghost story that was sent to us titled Long Distance about a woman who won’t give up on her boyfriend after he gets married, even after she dies.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Fox shares another round of Clown News. The clowns are spreading north, and they’re coming for you. This is a perfect example of modern American folklore in action.</span></strong></p> <h2><strong><span style="color: #000000;">James Chambers returns to talk about the Horror Writers Association’s annual Halloween Haunts, a series of essays, stories, photos and thoughts from members of the Horror Writers Association that he will put up each day until Halloween.</span></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"><a href="http://horror.org/category/blog/" target= "_blank">http://horror.org/category/blog/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Monk Turner has contributed a song to launch us towards Halloween. Halloween Night from his album Calendar.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Monk Turner has produced more than 25 concept albums using a collective of musicians who share his passion for creating freeform, genre-defying music. Among some of his accomplishments, Turner's composition with musician Fascinoma won a competition held by radio station WFMU and the Free Music Archive for an alternative version of the popular “Happy Birthday to You,” entitled, “It’s Your Birthday!” In addition to his prolific catalog, his songs have been featured in movies, television programs and advertisements. The track “Judicious Jason” from Instrumental Friends Part 3 broke a Guinness World Record when 2,231 students chose the song to do history’s largest choreographed ribbon dance. His albums are available for free download via Creative Commons license on Bandcamp, Free Music Archive, and Archive.org. They can also be streamed via Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube Music, and Beats/MediaNet.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://monkturner.weebly.com/about-monk-turner.html">http://monkturner.weebly.com/about-monk-turner.html</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">See you next week with Episode 21.</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">MUSIC LIST:</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Come Play with Me Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Haunted Ballroom Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">The Chase Pulse Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Ghost Story Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Halloween Night – Calendar – Monk Turner - Licensed by permission.<br /></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style= "font-size: 14pt;"> </span></strong></p>

19 - FALL SPIRITS
<p><span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #ff9900;"><strong>EPISODE 19:</strong> <strong>Fall Spirits</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Happy #Equinox! It’s our season, #Autumn. #<a href= "http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/mabontheautumnequinox/a/AllAboutMabon.htm" target="_blank">Mabon</a>. #Halloween is only a few weeks away, and Fox & Phil have lots of spooky and horror to fill the time. Horror personality, one of the #Crypticon Ghoul Girls and host on iHorror, Friday nights, Kino McFarland (Demented), co-hosts this episode to talk about her work in film and her life as a model, escape artist and circus performer. This is the third episode to be part of the programming at #Para-X on Saturday nights, 6PM dead. They record on location from <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/ComicZen/" target="_blank">Comic Zen</a> in Lansdale PA to celebrate its recent opening on Cruise Night in Montgomery County.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Partly sponsored by <a href= "http://perpetualpublishing.com" target="_blank">Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing</a>:</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Our co-host <strong><span style= "color: #ff0000;">Kino McFarland</span></strong> - <a href= "http://www.twitter.com/kinomcfarland" target= "_blank">@KinoMcFarland</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">With a love for theatrics and a passion for writing, Kino McFarland began building a career of storytelling through word and film at a young age. She was a valued member of her high school’s drama club’s stage crew and later went on to perform at The Ohio Renaissance Festival as a street character.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">The sideshow bug bit Kino at the Renaissance Festival and she began performing with the Pickled Brothers Circus and FreakShow Deluxe as Hannah Bel. Her skills as a glass walker, escape artist, and more have allowed her to perform with bands such as the Insane Clown Posse and GWAR. While traveling with sideshows, Kino refined her writing skills with Full Sail University.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Kino writes primarily dark subjects with a hint of comedy, which can be attributed to her experience with vaudevillian performers and showmen. Vampires, witches, and ghosts are some of her most beloved subjects, as are the many people and personalities that she has encountered while traveling the country. She firmly believes that only an oblivious person can write a boring character. The best characters are all around us.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Her film credits range from being a Production Assistant and Behind the Scenes Photographer to directing and writing her own films, such as Hangry, The Beasts of the Earth <span style="font-weight: inherit;">(winner of Best Sound Design at the Seattle 48 Hour Film Horror Project)</span>, and <em>Declawed</em> (2nd place winner at Cine-City). She is currently working on a webseries called <em>Kino's Asylum</em> for iHorror.com's Youtube channel in which she discusses the horror genre as her horror host personality, Kino B. Demented. She has dedicated her life to horror and can often be found with the Crypticon Ghoul Girls in Seattle, Washington.</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12qm85QMu8U" target= "_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12qm85QMu8U</a> - My escape video</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QpAv0ToTm4" target= "_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QpAv0ToTm4</a> - Declawed</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://www.kinomcfarland.com" target= "_blank">www.kinomcfarland.com</a> - my website</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"> <span style= "color: #800000; font-size: 18pt;"><strong>“Start meeting people who can get you onto sets.”</strong></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Kino McFarland (Demented)</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">The true ghost story this episode is from a New England resident, Renee Johnson—a classic ghost tale of the true sight of children and saying goodbye to family, read by voice actor Jamey McCartney. <strong>Grampie.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Randi Stinson from Cats Meow Mystical Shop returns to tell the story of an encounter with a man and the demon who owns his soul. Her sister Jini joins in the telling. It’s a story of when demonic oppression infected her life with <strong>Horse Flies.</strong> Never sell your soul to hell.</span></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><span style= "color: #003366; font-size: 18pt;">“The demon did not want the book in my story.”</span></span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Randi Stinson, owner of Cats Meow Mystical Store in Lansdale, PA that supplies pagans their material for spells, rituals and worship, also with a fantastic catalog online.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/Cats-Meow-Mystical-Shop-254525334636425/" target="_blank">Cats Meow Mystical Store</a></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Fox plays another song from the Swamp Music Players—a dark tale of Atlanta called The Street Sweeper. Can you decipher his truth? <em>He’s the street sweeper, baby, and he’s going to sweep these streets clean.</em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://swampmusic.info/players/">http://swampmusic.info/players/</a></span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Swamp Music Players is a retro-futuristic swamp band playing Swamp Blues, Swamp Rock, Swamp Pop and Cosmic Americana. Swamp genres is at the root of Rock'N'Roll, Country and the Blues. We are a Canada and Netherlands campus-charting band with FM radio airplay in several countries and deep social media penetration. SMP had jumped into the escape pod somewhere in the 1980's and only just returned to push forward this music. Dark and atmospheric swamp tunes, southern flavor all merging with retro cinematic elements that may remind you of some late night movie soundtrack you half remembered.</span></p> <p align="left"> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">T. Fox Dunham in their usual banter tells his true story about how while kayaking in Cape May, NJ last weekend, his boat sank, and he was nearly entombed in the mud. They also feature another edition of #<strong><em>Clown News</em></strong> to report the latest rash of psychological attacks and #clownsightings from #clowns along the American east coast. The clowns are coming.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">They end the show with a diabolical tale brought to them from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. <em>One Death at a Time</em> tells the story of a frustrated Satan dealing with an infuriating new soul in Hell. Written by Soren James.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><em>The Devil frowned, and began irritably shouting, “What on Earth are you talking about? Have you no conception of who I am? I could kick-start the apocalypse in your arse if I wanted. I could...What are you doing? You can't walk away from me!” He turned to his cohorts. “Famine! Bring her back here.”</em> – <strong>One Death at a Time</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong><em>Soren James is a writer and visual artist who recreates himself on a daily basis from the materials at his disposal, continuing to do so in an upbeat manner until one day he will sumptuously throw his drained materials aside and resume stillness without asking why.</em></strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">This is the last episode before their paranormal  adventure begins in October, counting down to Halloween. Coming up in future episodes: Ghost stories from #Gettysburg featuring the History Channel’s Mark Nesbitt, several paranormal investigators telling their ghost stories, tales of Pennsylvania, new songs, interviews and live events.

<p><span style="color: #ff6600;"><strong><span style= "font-size: 18pt;">EPISODE 18: WITCHES</span></strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Phil Thomas & T. Fox Dunham record on location from The Cats Meow Mystical Shop in #Lansdale, Pennsylvania (Montgomery County) in the Philadelphia region. They not only bring their usual assortment of #paranormal & horror content (like a box of chocolates made from shadows and gooey macabre) but they also talk to several surprise guests who visit on Bike Night in Lansdale.</span></p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Cats Meow Mystical Shop:</span></strong></p> <p align="left"><span style= "font-size: 12pt; color: #ff6600;">Psychic Tarot Card Readings</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; color: #ff6600;">Candles, Oils.

They’re changing the format so they can talk to their audience more, share their experiences and stories. For example, in this episode, they discuss the plague of clown sightings happening in the south: its validity and basis in #folklore.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ALL THESE #CLOWNS?</strong> Is this how the world ends?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fox interviewed the Lady-Medium, Jean Westbrook MA, CH, CMI. Jean is a local #medium who spent the last 30 years exploring her abilities, growing them and helping others on their search. She doesn’t see the future because she believes in free will.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">“My readings provide an emotional spiritual mirror to help you gain clarity so you can make positive conscious choices yourself. I am here to empower you. Cats Meow has been a wonderful place for me because Randi’s group has been very supportive.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://www.circleofwaterlight.com" target= "_blank">www.circleofwaterlight.com</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The true ghost story comes from western musician Suzen JueL about a house that won’t forget, The Window. And Randi Biba Stinson, owner of Cats Meow, and her sister, Jini, share one of her true ghost stories, Louise. He was the old shop owner, and they had to come to terms over a misunderstanding that crossed worlds.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/Suzen.JueL.Resistance/" target= "_blank">https://www.facebook.com/Suzen.JueL.Resistance/</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">They end the show with a song from a band in British Columbia: The Swamp Music Players.

The Swamp Music Players are a retro futuristic band with a passion for Swamp Rock, Swamp Blues, Swamp Pop and Cosmic Americana.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><a href= "http://swampmusic.info/players/" target="_blank">Swamp Music Players Website</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We look forward to sharing our next episode with you, Episode 19: Fall Spirits to be recorded on location at Comic Zen in Lansdale, PA.</span></p>

They’ve created a show with interviews, stories and songs about this macabre collection of folklore.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">This is also their first show to be broadcasted by Para X Radio!

In honor of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, T. Fox Dunham researched two pieces of American horror folklore and re-wrote them into new stories: Don’t Sell my House & The Bloodstain. Fox interviews Cody Meirick who is filming a documentary on the anthology, and David Walton finishes the show with an old #folksong featured in the book: “Don’t You Ever Laugh as the Hearse Goes By” or “The Worm Song.” The wars of the 20th century made this song popular.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">After September 10th, the show will be going to a weekly frequency.

Her biggest issues start the moment she discovers a chest of ancient mahjong tiles in the basement of her new house, causing her life to spin out of control with hallucinations, sexual deviances, and grisly murders.

15 - SUMMER GHOSTS
<p><span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #ff0000;"><strong>EPISODE 15: SUMMER ZOMBIES</strong></span></p> <p>On our July #podcast, Phil & Fox bring you a new true ghost story from New Hope, PA, an excerpt from Bob Pastorella’s new bizarre-southern noir novel <strong><span style= "color: #ffcc00;">MOJO RISING,</span></strong> an interview with #medium Jamal Brown and . . . the zombies are back! Also, what do you want on your gravestone? They asked their fans on Facebook.</p> <p><span style= "font-size: 18pt; color: #ff9900;"><strong>FUN-COMPOSING not DECOMPOSING!</strong></span></p> <p>SPONSORED BY <strong>Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing</strong></p> <p><a href= "http://perpetualpublishing.com/">http://perpetualpublishing.com/</a></p> <div> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong> ***</strong></p> </div> <p>Their new and original true #ghost story for this episode is from local author & Bram Stoker’s winner, PD Cacek. This is the first of several from the talented horror author, written about a beloved and bucolic town in #Pennsylvania, New Hope—an artist’s town on the #Delaware River. Fox knows the town well, going there often while growing up, visiting the many shops and inns. Where there’s history, there’s #ghosts. It is considered America’s most haunted town and it is even featured in a documentary—link below. PD is featured on the show. PD’s first ghost story is called <span style="color: #ff0000;"><em><strong>The Spinning Ghost of the Pineapple Inn</strong></em></span>. The complete audio story, not edited, can be found at Soundcloud, read by Patricia Thomas (Phil’s Mom!) Thanks Patricia! And a complete version of the story can be found on the website.</p> <p><strong><em>PD CACEK:</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">The winner of both a Bram Stoker and World Fantasy Award, P.D. Cacek has written over a hundred short stories, six plays, and five published novels. Her latest THE SELKIE, is currently available on Amzon.com.  (And the story behind its creation will be coming soon...) A native Westerner, Cacek now lives Phoenixville, PA…home of BLOBFEST, and only a short walk away from The Colonial Theater where the famous “Run Screaming From Theater” scene was filmed. When not writing, she can often been found either with a group of costumed storytellers called THE PATIENT CREATURES (www.creatureseast.com), or haunting local cemeteries looking for inspiration.</p> <p>PD Cacek has become a member of the haunted family at What Are You Afraid Of? Podcast, and she has already contributed much. More stories are coming in the future from this talented horror author. She was also featured on the #ghost & #paranormal documentary <strong><em>America's Most Haunted Town</em></strong> from <a href= "http://www.imdb.com/company/co0036540?ref_=tt_dt_co"><span class= "itemprop">Luminence Films.</span></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.hulu.com/watch/119559">PLAY AMERICA'S MOST HAUNTED TOWN DOCUMENTARY</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 14pt; color: #993300;"><strong>"I don’t see dead people, but sometimes, it seems, I become them . . ."</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p>The background song behind the ghost story is 2706 from Mystary & Mystary Records.</p> <p>More information can be found here, and the album is available on <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/2706-limited-edition/id1031056131" target="_blank">iTunes</a> & <a href= "https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Mystary_2706_Limited_Edition?id=Bnnpb7tufs6ygsayrh7vce35yxu" target="_blank">GooglePlay</a>. <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/officialhauntedhouses">MYSTARY RECORDS ON FACEBOOK</a></p> <p><a href= "https://soundcloud.com/t-fox-dunham/the-spinning-ghost-pd-cacek-what-are-you-afraid-of-ep15"> COMPLETE STORY AT SOUNDCLOUD</a></p> <div> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong> ***</strong></p> </div> <p>Phil Thomas and T.

<p><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>EPISODE 13: CHARLES ADAMS III</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Well, we’ve had the self-discipline to get you 13 episodes, and we’re going strong. This is a momentous episode for old lucky 13. <strong><span style= "color: #ff0000;">NEW THEME SONG!!!</span></strong> We’re no longer using open license horror music for our opening. We have a unique theme song composed just for us from author & musician Michael Garrett. All I had to do was write him three op-ed pieces. Nice trade!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We feature a true ghost story from Tori L. Ridgewood, Tori’s House from Kirkland Lake, Ontario. Read by British folksinger, David Walton in his usual charming manner.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Phil & Fox discuss more true ghost phenomenon, have their usual banter, and then we lead into our interview with folklorist and author Charles Adams III. We’re rather proud of this one. Charlie has been collecting and writing true ghost stories from the east coast for decades. He was doing it when the term paranormal didn’t exist, and we’ve all seen his books in museum gift shops and libraries. We feature part one of this interview on the show.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fox Dunham talks about issues in the horror writing community and reads his letter to the Horror Writer Association core members and leadership, written at a time of great turmoil for all authors involved with the organization.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">John Foster, co-host for episode 5 returns with an interview about his new novel from Grey Matter Press, Mister White as one of the Dark Five.

Fox Dunham open the show with a short true #ghost story sent in by filmmaker, writer and professional performing freak, Kino McFarland, called <span style= "color: #ff0000;"><em><strong>Wrong Number</strong></em></span>.

Old Charleston Jail, which was operational from 1802 until 1939, housed Charleston's most infamous criminals and, during the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War">Civil War</a>, Federal prisoners of war. The Old Jail housed a great variety of inmates. John and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavinia_Fisher">Lavinia Fisher</a>, and other members of their gang, convicted of robbery and murder in the Charleston Neck region were imprisoned here in 1819 to 1820. Some of the last 19th-century high-sea pirates were jailed here in 1822 while they awaited hanging.

Phil & Fox discuss death and odd forms of burial from around the world—cannibalism, being fed to birds and Buddhist live-mummification. They also read some witty epitaphs found over the centuries and from our listeners.

We are not secure. We broadcast a frightening & cautionary tale—an interview with Ron Saul, previous ghost hunter, who tells his story of bringing back with him a demonic attachment from Pennhurst Asylum of Philadelphia. A dark force attached to Ron while he ghost-hunted at Pennhurst, and he took it home then fought demonic oppression for nearly a year. He speaks of how to prevent it in this terrifying story. </span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img style="margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto; display: block;" src="http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/mHgB0dHnAUM/maxresdefault.jpg" alt="Pennhurst Asylum" width="410" height="245" /></span><span style="font-size: 18pt;">All brave paranormal investigators--seekers of the truth--endanger themselves in each hunt.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"> </p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Finally, to start off our short fiction segment, host <a href="http://tfoxdunham.blogspot.com/" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">T.

A young woman takes care of her ungrateful siblings during a zombie apocalypse, and she finally has enough! I wrote this to help a friend survive the responsibilities of her siblings.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">This episode shows our range of content—the many spectrums of horror.

You’ll learn a lot from Bill, and we intend to bring him back in future episodes.</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_156" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 124px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href="https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/bill-wiles.png"><img class="wp-image-156" style="margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto; display: block;" src="https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/bill-wiles.png" alt="Bill Wiles" width="114" height="114" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Bill Wilkes</dd> </dl> </div> <p>Phil and I discuss the Indie horror industry for both film-makers and authors. Distributors and publishers can be unreliable, and you have to be careful with whom you trust work. We share our experience and tell the truth about the industry. If you’re a new horror author or film-maker trying to make a career, you better listen. This is the way it is.</p> <p>We close with a recently collected story from Bill G called Fast Eddie, recorded by voice actor, Jon Prive. I, Fox, collected this story on Halloween from a friend at Barnes and Nobles just after he listened to both episode of the podcast and recalled a time when the other side reached out to him. Was it just his grief? Did Eddie come for Bill? Or both?</p> <p>And Phil Thomas filmed a promotional piece to launch a campaign to raise money for his new movie—an old school slasher story. I acted in this short film, and we talk about the experience on the podcast. Here is a photo from the filming.</p> <div class="mceTemp"> <dl id="attachment_160" class="wp-caption alignleft" style="width: 310px;"> <dt class="wp-caption-dt"><a href="https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/v__414e1.jpg"><img class="size-medium wp-image-160" src="https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/v__414e1.jpg?w=300" alt="Fox discovering his dead girlfriend while stalked from behind." width="300" height="169" /></a></dt> <dd class="wp-caption-dd">Fox discovering his dead girlfriend while stalked from behind.</dd> </dl> </div> <p>Much coming in the future. EPISODE IV: DEMONIC OPRESSION will be the story of a retired ghost hunter, Ron, who suffered a dark attachment after investigating a haunted site. This dark entity terrorized him, and he tells us the story—a cautionary tale. We’ll be examining the case with other experts and talking about how to prevent and defend against shadow-creatures, what are called in Christian parlance, demons. We plan for this to be live on November 27th 2015.</p> <p>We just want to note that all extra sound material used on the show—sound effects and music—is part of the public domain and podcast safe.

They are there watching even if you don’t see them, always with us.</p> <p>We end this article with the twitter words of Gary from Ghost Investigations in the United Kingdom. Gary is getting ready to investigate the famed Poltergeist House, and he tells us via Twitter how he prepares for a paranormal investigation:</p> <p><em>Hi Fox. I work logically and methodically so knowing the plan of investigation is a must. Full equipment check beforehand . . . Sadly no weird rituals like, “I drink banana milk and eat a Twix!” . . . Depending on the location determines how you prepare but generally just think happy thoughts and about the good things . . . in life. I don’t go to a location to get scared. For me it’s about the story, the person behind the haunting. As in life . . . some people are nice, others less so. The process of dealing with that is the same but comes with a big buzz when you get . . . a response via knocking, movement, evp or apparition.</em></p> <p><a href="http://www.ghostinvestigations.co.uk/">http://www.ghostinvestigations.co.uk/</a></p> <p>So listen to the show and leave us some comments or a review on iTunes with a couple of stars.</p> <h3 style="text-align: center;">Have a Happy Thanksgiving from Phil, Fox and the team of What Are You Afraid Of?</h3>

Bill has already helped with over 5,000 cases.

1 - DEATH IS NOT THE END
<p><span style="color: #800000; font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What Are You Afraid Of?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We’ve all experienced messages from beyond the silver veil, whether we want to admit it or not. Some people take no notice, ignoring these outreaches. Others embrace them, seeing them as evidence of an expanded universe. Whether these stories frighten or comfort, we are reassured.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In my youth, I worked for various museums and gained a passion for the science of collecting folk culture. These personal experiences need to be recorded and added to this rich archive, presented for scholar and seeker. We’ve already established an archive of collected stories that have never been recorded before.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The reading of collected personal ghost stories as part of our outreach program to record folklore through social media, email and community events. Horror material including interviews with horror authors, the reading of classic ghost stories and discussions of the industry. And we will be producing interviews with ghost hunting groups. We will be recording this podcast from notoriously haunted locations.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The broadcast will be no longer than an hour except for the last episode which will be transmitted around Halloween.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">So we need true stories. They need to have been personally experienced by the author or someone close. The accounts should be in their own words as if telling the story to a friend or in an email. The stories work best when around 1,000 words, but we have done longer sagas.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We need help gathering stories, spreading the word so people will send us their accounts. We’d also be glad for any ideas for segments or general horror material for the show. We can offer promotion.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Email us your personal true ghost stories at whatareyouafraidof117@gmail.com</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The Website: ghosthostwithfoxandphil.wordpress.com</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Twitter: @pfwhatafraidof</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><a href="https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.wordpress.com/">https://ghosthostwithfoxandphil.wordpress.com/</a></span></p>
