Thursday, September 9th – Guest: Kieran Begg

Kieran Begg – It’s an Eerie Earth

From ghosts and spirits to ufology and cryptozoology, folklore and dark tales that plague some of the most haunted cities in the world, Kieran Begg takes us on a journey discussing everything in the field.

GUEST BIO:

Kieran Begg is a writer and the host of the UK late night radio show Eerie Earth. Investigating the paranormal since 2007, Kieran’s fright and fascination in the field spans for most of his life since childhood, as his father would regale him with tales of intrigue from his haunted drama studio, with the shenanigans of a pesky poltergeist.

Getting his start in the field in 2007 while studying in college for television production, as he wrote his first documentary script about ghost stories of Aberdeen, he was invited to join a local paranormal group where he spent two years investigating locations around Scotland.

After moving to Bristol, he started his own paranormal group, Torchlight Paranormal, investigating some of the most haunted locations around the South West of England, including the infamous Ancient Ram Inn.

Tripping On Legends

Tripping On Legends LIVE – Tuesday, July 27th – The Crisscross Haunted in Osteen

TUESDAY – TRIPPING ON LEGENDS LIVE WITH CHRISTOPHER BALZANO

“Episode 93 – Whistling By The Cemetery”

Step inside the elevator, push the buttons, and when the doors open up you’re in a different world. Would you play?
There’s a reason so many horror movies and ghostly legends lean heavily on them to deliver scares. From a recent episode of Evil to Elisa Lam to the little girl who never got out, elevators are part of our haunted imagination. We get in and assume they will just take us where we need to go, but sometimes they don’t. Where does our fear come from?
Join Tripping on Legends as we explore the new popularity of the Elevator Game and other modern spooky legends that look to tap into our fear of the lift.

Tripping On Legends LIVE – Tuesday, June 29th – “Episode 93 – Whistling By The Cemetery”

TUESDAY – TRIPPING ON LEGENDS LIVE WITH CHRISTOPHER BALZANO

“Episode 93 – Whistling By The Cemetery”

Remember when your mother told you to never whistle past the cemetery or hold your breath until the headstones had passed? The word legend tripping comes from a long history of sneaking out past dark to perform some ritual at the local cemetery. These journeys were based on the idea that an urban legend lived nearby and the only way to prove yourself was to go through the motions and become part of the story. Little did you know the town next to you had its own. Join Tripping on Legends as we look at some of the most famous stories involving your local cemetery lore and the most famous urban legends told about the trips we are challenged to make… …and make sure to join in with your favorite or local legend. Feel free to call our new phone number during our live shows to get involved, share a legend you’ve heard, or to just ask a question at (813) 418-6822.

In this week’s Weird Tales Radio Show our guest is American author, blogger and journalist Marc Hartzman who has been described as “one of America’s leading connoisseurs of the bizarre”.
