Tripping on legends

Let's take a trip. Small town, USA. This is where the pulse of the paranormal resides. There are thousands of stories and experiences out there. Some have been told, and retold hundreds of times, and some are kept hidden, known only by the people that live there; this is where we come in. We're exploring the untold, and breaking down the overly familiar. Journeying through the one stoplight towns and discovering local urban legends, myths, lore, and paranormal episodes. Researching the backgrounds and developing the voices unheard. Our goal is not to capture evidence, but rather to capture the moment and bring our listeners along for the ride.

Tripping on legends


Episode 110...Can't Be Erased

Updated about 1 month ago.

I was not always a monster, once I was somebody's muse. The world may be your canvas, what you paint on it, beware. The pen is mightier than the sword, it has no limitation. Don't refrain, this ink will stain and nothing can erase us now.

In the world of haunted storytelling and urban legends, we who set the story can’t always control it. Often times the nature of a ghost is determined by the tales we tell about it. Once it’s out there, the haunting takes a life of its own and can’t be erased.

Join Christopher Balzano and the Trippers as they look at some famous ghost stories that have gotten out of control. They’ll also look at home modern mythology has taken control of the narrative. Media like Five Night at Freddy’s, Walton Files, Mandela Catalogue, and the Backrooms are following in the footsteps of Slender Man to shift who can tell the story and how it gets told.

Join us June 4th at the SWFL Skunk Ape Conference:
