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.

Episode 65...The Stikini and the Dade Massacre

Updated 6 months ago.

Vampire witches who take the form of owls to hunt their prey. An illiterate career soldier who crawled from the dead only to never tell his tale. A ancient curse still making itself known in the quiet roads and swamps of Florida.

What are the Stikini and did they spark what is known as the Dade Massacre?

What began as a simple blog post on an obscure Web site sparked a question which may never be answered. Join the Trippers as they look into the old Seminole witch legend used to explain one of the most important moments in Florida history. Christopher Balzano and Deanna Mulhern debate the best way to attract one during a legend trip and plan their trip to Central Florida to track one down.
