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. Trip with us - Christopher Balzano, a veteran within the paranormal field, published author, and teacher, with Natalie Crist, a self proclaimed research guru.

Tripping on legends


Episode 85…Boogeyman: There Is No Fact or Fiction

Updated 4 months ago.

It started with an old cold case. Now, as the question of who killed Little Miss Panasoffkee dances around in our brains, only one name seems to make complete sense. Trouble is, no one talks about it.

If there has been one boogeyman who has followed Tripping on Legends around since the beginning, it has been serial killer Gerald John Schaefer. From the Devil’s Tree to Shiloh to Rolling Acres, he’s popped in to let us know to #followthesigns. Join Christopher Balzano as he brainstorms a new project with Paradise After Dark (
) looking at a man who’s myth has been plaguing the state for over 60 years, even after death.

Some links and homework for you leading up to the show:
