EPISODE 44: BOOGEYMAN
There are monsters in your closet. You deny it to feel safe, but you are only blinding yourself to the truth. And there are monster hunters. Gaylen Chauncey of the AfterlifeGoesOn Paranormal Group located in Virginia, USA tracks these terrible abominations and protects children. She joins hosts T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas on the next two shows on a special series of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show. Gaylen has been seeing ghosts since she was a child, even hunted by a monster. She has a unique point of view on the supernatural. “All ghosts, no matter how sweet, are parasites.” We spend the next two episodes talking with Gaylen, sharing her ghost stories and experiences. Also, we feature a ghost story collected by Fox while staying at a bed & breakfast in Clinton NJ—one of the most haunted places in America. British folksinger David Walton treats us to a new version of a classic English folksong, The Unquiet Dead, and blues hound Wily Bo Walker & The Rattlin Bone Theatre Show sings the burlesque song, Ain’t Hungry No More. Yes, there is something hiding in the closet. www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com
