It’s Halloween week, 13 O’Clockers, so we’ve got two creepy historical incidents to chill your blood with! First, we’ll be discussing the curious case of Mercy Brown, sometimes known as the Last Vampire in New England, who was exhumed in the late 19th century because the townsfolk believed she was undead and feeding on her family members. Then we’ll discuss the bizarre Irish murder of Bridget Cleary, whose husband killed her in a horrific manner because he seemed to genuinely believe she was not actually his wife, but had been replaced by a fairy changeling. Turn down the lights, curl up with a blanket and your beverage of choice, and spend some spooky time with Tom and Jenny on a live pre-Halloween hootenanny on episode 271.
