Episode 130: 
Haunting of Heather Taddy

As we countdown to Halloween 2019, we’ve featured a variety of horror authors, television actors and paranormal investigators. Heather Taddy joins us on Episode 130 to share her years of private and televised ghost and alien hunting. Heather Taddy’s noticeable enthusiasm for the odd and unknown landed her a role as a field investigator and documentarian on 4 seasons of A&E’s Paranormal State. And now she searches for evidence of extraterrestrials with Chuck Zukowski on Travel Channel’s Destination America. She shares her inspiration to seek out the paranormal, her scariest encounter with a dark spirit and her views on modern paranormal investigation. We also play a song, Lull, from Heather’s Pittsburgh band, punk-rock, “Glow Worm.”

Then English folksinger David Walton narrates T. Fox Dunham’s dark tale set during World War II. “Potentia.” Published in the anthology Monsterthology II from Zombie Works Publications, the story tells the last encounter between Victor Frankenstein and his creation in a death camp, where the scientist is working to give the Reich immortality.

Next week, listen for our Halloween at the Beach Special from Cape May, New Jersey!

EPISODE 128:
HALLOWEEN HAUNTED HAYRIDE

 

As Halloween 2019 approaches, beloved friend and brilliant author of dark stories, PD Cacek, returns to celebrate the spooky season with writer T. Fox Dunham. Trish is a friend, sensitive and author. Flame Tree Press is releasing her next book, 'Second Lives', and she comes on to talk about her insights into writing, the elements of horror fiction and ghost stories and to talk about how she gets ready for Halloween. She also shares some ghost stories including the tale of extra 'extra' convict at Philadelphia’s infamously haunted Eastern Penn State Penitentiary. English folksinger David Walton narrates a ghost story sent in by a friend of the show from Texas called The Gold is Mine about a young boy facing supernatural forces in his new family house. And as a special treat, T. Fox Dunham interviews one of the resident ghouls at the Bucks County Sleepy Hollow Haunted Acres—a threefold haunt that includes a hayride, corn maze and the haunted abode, Malfate Manor. Dark powers cursed Gilchrist to serve the household after death, and he comes on to lament his fate and talk about one of the favorite Halloween haunts visited by Fox and his wife, Allison.


We’re counting down to Halloween 2019 with lots more spooky to go!

EPISODE 126:
FRIDAY THE 13th THE SERIES - THE EPISODE

“Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil to sell cursed antiques . . .” It was on Saturday afternoons. We watched it when we were kids, fascinated by the occult horror. Three friends track down cursed objects to undo dark magic. Every object—a creepy doll, a scythe or playhouse—granted its owner powers but always at a terrible price.

Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas interview actor and filmmaker Steve Monarque who played Johnny Ventura on Friday the 13th the Series. Johnny joins them to talk about his time as the young artifact hunter and his career as an actor and filmmaker. Steve created Monavision Films, and he’s gone on to several films. He’s also a talented musician, and we play one of his songs “All U Have 2 Do” from his band, The Monarques. Our English folksinger, David Walton, narrates a ghost legend from Yorkshire, England about a cursed chair that brings death on any who sit in it: The Death Chair of Thomas Busby. We’re counting down to Halloween 2019, and Fox and Phil will be at the Marquis de Lafayette Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey on the evening of October 25th to do their Halloween special.

EPISODE 124:
HALLOWEEN CANDY'S ALREADY ON THE SHELF!!!

 

The stores are already selling Halloween candy. It’s really messing with authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas! But hey, they love Halloween, so time to start the autumn season with a new episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show.
Phil and Fox hang out and chat about Halloween, candy, their new content, Phil’s new film project and a ghost story sent in by Dave Brahler. Dave was a guest on episode 78: The Haunted Caller, when he told the story of several spirits who were haunting his family in Indiana. Well, the ghosts are back, and this time they sound ‘inhuman’ or ‘demonic’. English folksinger David Walton narrates the story of a strange weekend when Dave’s family was visited by an old man who may not have been human at all. The hosts also share another story from Mister Ghosts of Gettysburg, Mark Nesbitt. Mark shares the haunted history of Springs Avenue in Gettysburg including spirits of civil war soldiers and the ghosts of victims who burned to death in a fire. And then, more clown news! A man dressed as a clown ruins a cruise when he dressed up for a fancy-dress party that was canceled. This was a drunken-clown throw down. Halloween is coming, and the hosts are doing extra episodes to get you in the mood for the spooky season.

EPISODE 123:
ALIENS WANT OUR COWS!!!

 

“There’s a lot we don’t know, not only about our planet but what’s happening outside of our planet—other dimensions and such.” – Chuck Zukowski, lead investigator from Travel Channel’s show, Alien Highway. Authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas are back with episode 123: ALIENS WANT OUR COWS! And for some mysterious reason, they do! Aliens keep mutilating innocent bovines, but we’ve got the man to uncover the dastardly extraterritorial plan. We play part two of our interview with lifelong alien hunter, Chuck Zukowski. You can listen to part one on episode 122. Chuck discusses cattle mutilations, his investigation of aliens, the different kind of aliens out there and his new show, Alien Highway. And he shares some insights into the notorious cave incident on the show, when he and his team got close to uncovering alien artifacts in a lost family cave, and then the owner shut down the investigation right before they found the answer. But they will be back! We also play another ghost story from the New Jersey shore, this time the spooky tales of the ghosts of Higbee Beach in Cape May, New Jersey. Phantom train tracks, a forgotten tomb and the ghost of a dark figure with a dog can be found on this beautiful beach. And our beloved English folksinger, David Walton, narrates the true story of Chuck Zukowski’s attempt to communicate with aliens and his terrifying results. There are creatures in other dimensions just below the surface, watching us. We thank Chuck Zukowski for talking to us. Check out his new show on The Travel Channel, Alien Highway.

EPISOE 121:
TORMENTED SPIRITS & AUTHORS

Writers are a tormented lot. We should know. We’re both authors. On Episode 121 of What Are You Afraid Of? we talk to some tormented spirits and authors. Edgar Allan Poe, tormented writer and poet, haunts the state of Maryland—the place of his birth and death. Shortly after his strange passing—the circumstances have never been entirely explained—fans began seeing his mournful spirit manifesting in his family’s home, at his favorite local tavern and especially in the catacombs where his body was entombed and moved twice. T. Fox Dunham shares the true ghost story that accounts the many visitations of his spirit and strange customs that have become associated with the tragic author including ‘The Toaster!” For the last sixty years, a phantom figure has been seen at his grave toasting Poe with his favorite cognac. Some think this spirit is Poe come back to mourn for himself and the women he loved. Then Fox interviews Crystal Lake Publishing author, Mark Allan Gunnells—no association to the Allan in Poe’s name he claims. Mark talks about his long obsession with writing horror, his new work, and he shares advice with new authors who are trying to get published. English folksinger David Walton narrates his poem, End of the World, and his short story, Go to Sleepy Little Baby from his new collection, Book Haven and Other Curiosities, now available. Fox closes the show with the song Through the Darkness from the talented Jeremy Allingham.

EPISODE 120:
THE DEAD STILL PARTY IN 
NEW ORLEANS

T. Fox Dunham returns from New Orleans with new ghost stories and interviews! New Orleans is the ghost city of the south, a city rich with culture and characters. In addition to the delicious cuisine, history, culture and architecture, the Big Easy is also one of the most haunted places in the world. Over the next several episodes, author T. Fox Dunham will be sharing stories of the living and the dead encountered on his trip—stories of voodoo, torture, lost souls, haunted musicians and mystical monsters. T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas begin episode 120 talking about the trip, then Fox shares a story about the oldest cemetery in New Orleans, St. Louis Cemetery One, known for its iconic tombs. Because the city was built on land below sea level, they can’t bury their dead, so they’ve built cities of mausoleums, necropolises where spirits still roam, drawn out by the music of the French Quarter. Then he tells Phil all about the various monsters that terrorize the bayou including the tale of the bright white Rougarou—a were-beast that punishes Catholics who violate their Lent vows. The hosts share some music from local performers including a special song sung about Fox to his wife Allison, which she dreaded! Video on the website. And they play jazz from the band Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Excited yet? Well, this is just the beginning of our summer episodes featuring the city.

EPISODE 119:
GHOSTS OF VIETNAM

 

Doing the show, authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas have had the honor and pleasure of speaking to artists from around the world. On episode 119, T. Fox Dunham interviews crime/horror author Elka Ray, resident of Hoi An, Vietnam. Elka comes on the show to talk about her career, share an excerpt from the new crime anthology, A Time for Violence, and tell us about Vietnamese cultural views on the supernatural. Vietnam is mostly a Buddhist country that practices ancestor worship. Elka tells us about the creation of hungry ghosts: angry spirits that are created when a body goes missing or is damaged. And she tells a number of ghost stories from the region including the story of a haunted house in Ho Chi Minh City that required a cleansing after the presence of gaggle of Buddhists awoke a hungry ghost. David Walton narrates a ghost story about a cursed tombstone and an excerpt from Elka’s story, One Hit Wonder. Episode 119 is a fascinating look into the culture of Vietnam and presents the wisdom of a talented female author.

MERCY

(A Horror Medical Thriller Novel from Blood Bound Books.)

 

FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.“ READ FULL REVIEW HERE.

 

Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night

Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

This was my death.
Life is an addiction.

Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.

EPISODE 113:
FOLK DEVILS & MORAL PANIC

 

On episode 113 of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas discuss an old concept in folk culture called moral panic. The most recent manifestation is the Momo Challenge. Momo is a horrific bird statue that first appeared in Japan, and according to the new urban legend, she assaults children and advises them to commit acts of self-harm. Momo is the most recent folk devil—the central antagonist causing moral panic—but the phenomenon goes back to the Salem Witch Trials, even further. In particular, Fox and Phil have kept their audience updated on evil clown sightings, and they discuss other relevant trends such as the satanic panic of the 1980s, the spurious demonic nature of Dungeons & Dragons and other events in hysterical society.

Fox also plays the last part in his paranormal trilogy about Philadelphia’s most notorious haunted house, The Baleroy Mansion. The final chapter tells of dark heart of the house: the blue room and the curse of an antique chair. Anyone who sits in this chair soon dies, joining the choir of agitated souls who still roam the mansion. Then the hosts finish the show talking about A Time for Violence—a new noir and horror anthology soon released by Close to the Bone with stories from T. Fox Dunham, Chris Roy, Joe R. Lansdale, Richard Chizmar, Tony Knighton, Isobel Blackthorn, John A. Russo and many more out on May 1st. Preorder on Amazon today! The band Titus 12 closes with their song from Pick Up Natty Red: A Ghost Story.

Kat shares insights about her investigations and tells the creepy tale of several paranormal encounters she had while filming at some of England’s most haunted sites including the Beattie Mansion, Shepton Mallet Prison, Cambria Jail and the Drakelow tunnels.

In the third grade, a teacher told Kat she would never amount to anything. Ha! She’s from the Bucks County area, and her life changed when she dropped off a friend at Pennsylvania State University. She then transferred to Penn State and joined the world-renowned Paranormal Research Society, training and working as their case manager. She co-hosted A&E’s hit docu-drama “Paranormal State” from 2007 to 2011, which chronicled the work of the PRS. Kat then became the host for Chiller’s “Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies,” which explores the real life terror behind some of the world’s most iconic horror films and hosted the follow-up special, “Real Fear: The Truth Behind More Movies.” Now she co-hosts the show Paranormal Lockdown which is playing its third season for Destination America. It’s a show that follows her and Nick Groff as they live in some notoriously haunted sites for 72 hours.
