Episode One Hundred Forty Eight: The Possession of Julia and the Michael Taylor Exorcist Murder

On today’s possessive installment, we’re discussing two cases of purported demon infestation, one of which resulted in a gruesome murder. First, we’ll be talking about the case of “Julia,” who approached the Catholic church in 2008 claiming to be possessed and who came to the attention of a Yale-and-Harvard-educated psychiatrist who suspected her possession was legit. Then we’ll tell the horrifying tale of Michael Taylor, a mild-mannered fella in a small English town who was seemingly taken over by demons after joining a weird religious sect and subsequently went on to kill his wife (and dog) in pretty much the worst way imaginable. Fill the tub with holy water and give Father Merrin a ring, it’s about to get demonic up on episode 148.

Episode One Hundred Twenty One: A Haunting Recap – The Demon Murder Case

It’s paranormal time again on this spooky installment of 13 O’Clock, and we’re finally going back to one of our popular discussions of an episode of A Haunting! This time, we’ll be talking about the season 2 episode entitled “Where Demons Dwell,” which details a possible haunting or demon possession in 1980 Connecticut. The case is also infamous in that it later led to the murder trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, who tried to claim demon possession as his defense. We discussed the case briefly on our show about the Warrens, but we thought we’d revisit the topic and give it a bit more depth, including a chat about the 1983 TV movie based on the case (starring a young Kevin Bacon). So ready your rosaries and holy water as we go a-haunting on episode 121.

Episode Ninety-Four: A Haunting Review – House of the Dead

It’s paranormal time again, and we’re returning to that wonderful wellspring of supernatural hijinks known as A Haunting. This time, we’re discussing the case of Billy Bean, whose story was told on episode 5 of season 2, titled “House of the Dead.” Billy moved into a house in Glen Burnie, Maryland with his family in 1970 when he was just seven years old, and before too long, some apparently nefarious force began targeting the Beans, causing violent poltergeist activity and the drastic personality change of Billy’s father. Join us as we run down the episode and the case, and also listen with amusement to our news story, in which we lament the darkly hilarious fate of a 2,000-year-old, extremely unlucky Pompeii resident. Poltergeists and demons and ghosts, oh my! It’s a high-spirited episode 94.

Episode Fifty: The Demon Child Haunting

It’s our fiftieth episode (cue party horn going *fweeeeet*)!!! And what better way to celebrate than with yet another one of our fun and popular breakdowns of “A Haunting” episodes! This time we’ll be discussing another one of our favorites, “Demon Child,” from season 2, which features a kid peeing in a closet and sitting on a cat, a demon named Man who pretends to be a bratty dead kid, and the ubiquitous Raccoon Man playing the dad! Thanks to everyone who has supported us through all 50 episodes so far, and we hope to have lots more shows coming in the future! But for now, Man said you could listen to episode 50 of 13 O’Clock. HE SAID IT WOULD BE FUN! 🙂

Episode Thirty-Nine: The Haunting of Summerwind

Some of our listeners might remember the episode of the TV show A Haunting which was titled “The Haunting of Summerwind.” The house called Summerwind, in fact, is better known as the Lamont Mansion, and a bunch of spooky legends surround the place. Even though the house was destroyed by fire in 1988, ghost hunters in Wisconsin still claim that the area is haunted, and on this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny not only discuss the history and stories about the Lamont Mansion, but also how the facts differ from the episode of A Haunting (which, incidentally, is Tom’s very favorite episode of the show). We also discuss our feelings about other paranormal shows currently on the airwaves.

Episode Eleven: “Real” Demonic Possession and Exorcisms

The power of Christ should compel you to listen to episode 11 of the 13 O’Clock Podcast, wherein Tom and Jenny break down a few notable cases of supposed demon possession, like the tale of Roland Doe/Robbie Mannheim (basis for the film/novel The Exorcist) and Anneliese Michel (basis for The Exorcism of Emily Rose). We also discuss a few notable murder cases in which demon possession was an actual defense (yeah, that didn’t work out so well) and a few other bits and bobs about so-called “demonic” hauntings.
