Episode One Hundred Forty Two: Ted Serios and Psychic Photography

On this photogenic installment, Tom and Jenny are discussing the case of Ted Serios, a paranormal celebrity in the 1960s who would get ragingly drunk and then claim to be able to project his thoughts onto Polaroid pictures in what nowadays is called thoughtography. Was this dude really snapping photos of his subconscious, or was it all just a simple trick? And where did this whole idea of photographing thoughts come from, anyway? Down a bottle of cheap scotch and say cheese, folks, it’s about to get paranormal up in here on episode 142.

Episode Seventy-Six: A Haunting at Allen House, Plus Kent Ghost Monk

Hooray, Tom is finally back! And to celebrate, we’re doing another one of our fun discussions of an episode of A Haunting…this one concerns the season 5 episode titled “The Haunting of the Allen House,” which is a reenactment of the paranormal shenanigans happening to the Spencer family after they purchase the infamously haunted house in Arkansas and subsequently discover a secret about a woman who committed suicide there back in the 1940s. Apparitions and doomed love affairs of the past abound! We’ll also be discussing a recent news story about a man who allegedly photographed a ghost at an English castle, so get your haunt on and tune in for episode 76.

Episode Sixty-Seven: The Sallie House Haunting

On this ghostly episode, we’re returning to our study of paranormal cases featured on the program A Haunting. This time we examine the infamous Sallie House in Atchison, Kansas, specifically the two-year residence of the Pickman family, who allegedly experienced objects moving around and catching fire, the sighting of apparitions, physical attacks, and strange personality changes. The haunting at the Sallie House has been attributed to the ghost of a seven-year-old girl and perhaps that of her angry mother, but accounts differ, and Tom and Jenny discuss the case and the way it was portrayed on A Haunting, trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. Put all your teddy bears in a circle and commune with the spirit of episode 67.

Episode Sixty-Five: Poltergeists Who Play With Fire – Canneto di Caronia and More!

A poltergeist infestation can be a pain in the ass at the best of times, but what happens when the manifestations cause actual, massive property damage? That’s allegedly what happened in these six tales of fire-starting poltergeists. Tom and Jenny discuss the mysterious town-wide outbreak of fires in Canneto di Caronia, Italy (and how they may have a rational explanation after all), as well as five more infamous cases of “fire spooks” that occurred at Caledonia Mills, Nova Scotia; Odon, Indiana; Macomb, Illinois; Bladenboro, North Carolina; and Orland Hills, Illinois. Were these fires caused by some supernatural entity, by some kid with latent pyrokinetic powers, or by someone with a box full of matches and a penchant for destructive pranks? Have your graham crackers and marshmallows at the ready as we heat up for episode 65.

Episode Fifty-Nine: A Haunting in Georgia – Wyrick House and Mr. Gordy

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of our reviews of A Haunting episodes, so we decided to go back to the beginning and delve into the case behind one of the pilot episodes, “A Haunting in Georgia” (which was also the basis for the horror movie A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia). The Wyrick family begin to experience paranormal activity in their new home in Ellerslie, Georgia, mostly centering around their daughter Heidi seeing a friendly old man in the backyard who she called Mr. Gordy, as well as another man with blood on his shirt that she called Con. Later on, things got a bit more sinister with the arrival of a creepy hooded figure who seemed to wish the family harm. On this episode, Tom and Jenny talk about the episode of A Haunting as well as the witness accounts of the real case, and how it was (poorly) adapted to the big screen. Start your October off right with the ghostly, haunted 59th installment of 13 O’Clock.

Also, if you have a TRUE creepy story that happened to you or someone you know (it doesn’t have to be paranormal, just scary), please email it to me at gravecake@gmail.com and we might feature it on our special Halloween episode!

Episode Fifty-Two: EVPs and Spirit Communication

Have you ever been making a recording in a creepy old house (like you do) and gotten a lot more than you bargained for, such as, say, disembodied voices turning up on your audio devices? Welcome to the eerie and controversial world of electronic voice phenomena (EVP), which has now become an integral part of any paranormal investigation. The internet is awash in spooky recordings of supposed voices of the dead, but how real is this phenomena, and can our video and audio technology really be used to communicate with the other side? On this installment of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny discuss EVPs and spirit communication, play some examples of EVPs, give a short history of the concept of talking to ghosts through audio devices, and hone in on some of the better known figures in the field, such as Marcello Bacci and the radio he uses to talk to spirits. Tune in to our ghostly frequency and listen for the voices, because it’s time for episode 52.

Episode Thirty-Six: Real To Reel Horror

The world is full of real-life horrors, so it isn’t surprising that fictional horror sometimes takes its cue from true events. While most are familiar with the supposedly real stories behind movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, Jaws, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and The Amityville Horror, on this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny discuss four lesser-known recent horror films with plots somewhat based in reality: The Possession (based on the infamous dybbuk box), The Quiet Ones (based on the Philip Experiment), The Girl Next Door (based on the horrific torture and murder of Sylvia Likens), and The Forest (based on Aokigahara, Japan’s Suicide Forest). Listen in as horror gets real…sort of.

Episode Twenty-Five: The Scole Experiment

Often bandied about as one of the most compelling investigations into the reality of spirit communication, the Scole Experiment was actually a five-year-long series of around 500 seances attended by both mediums and scientists in various fields. The list of witnessed phenomena seems impressive: disembodied spirit voices, moving lights, spinning tables, and the appearance of bizarre images and writing on unexposed film kept in a locked box. But how solid is the evidence gathered by the Scole experimenters really? On this episode, Tom and Jenny give an overview of the project and examine some of the problems with methodology that cast doubt on the conclusions drawn by the experimenters.

Episode Twenty: Hauntings and Poltergeists with Parapsychologist Steve Mera

Happy 2017! On this first episode of the new year, Tom and Jenny have a very special guest, parapsychologist Steve Mera. Steve has been in the field for more than 30 years and has investigated hundreds of paranormal cases. Jenny even co-authored two books with him about two of his most fascinating investigations, The Rochdale Poltergeist and House of Fire and Whispers: Investigating the Seattle Demon House. On this episode, he talks about both those cases, as well as his career in the paranormal in general, including the differences between poltergeist infestations and hauntings, and what he thinks of popular “ghost hunting” shows. Tune in and enjoy the science behind the spooky.

Episode Twelve: The Enfield Poltergeist

On the even dozenth episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny have an in-depth and “spirited” (heh) discussion about what is probably the best-known poltergeist case of modern times, that of the Enfield Poltergeist in 1977. The story of the Hodgson family and their bizarre encounter with the unexplained (or their shameless hoaxing, depending on your perspective) has been the subject of numerous documentaries, books, a TV miniseries, and the recent horror film The Conjuring 2, but you haven’t really lived until you’ve heard your favorite podcasters’ take on it.

Episode Seven: The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist

On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the case that started it all. Jenny was primarily a horror writer until Tom told her about a horrifying poltergeist experience he had endured in 1982, when he was thirteen years old. Objects moved in impossible ways, creepy noises like human voices came out of thin air, and an eerie presence seemed to watch him and his family at every turn, and followed them to a total of three locations. Tom gives a rundown of some of the phenomena, using current pictures of one of the locations in order to jog his memory. Tom and Jenny also discuss the poltergeist activity that rekindled at their own home more than thirty years after the original incidents. If you’d like to know more about the case, Tom and Jenny wrote a book about it called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist, and they’ve also been on a few podcasts talking about the details, such as here and here.
