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 99...Bridgewater, 8 Episodes In

Updated 2 months ago.

More than 20 years ago the Blair Witch Project premiered and changed the face of horror film making, but before that there were filmmakers in Florida, sly marketing, and rumors of a witch in Pemberton Ferry. With a movie that relied on blurring the lines of what was real and what was fake, it’s tough to figure out just what might be folklore and what might be straight fiction.

Before his Lee County event of a special showing of the movie with Director Daniel Myrick (, Christopher Balzano looks at the lore of the film, it’s impact on legends and movies, and the case that may have inspired it all. It’s This Town is Myth meets Movie Night.

Everyone seems to have their own story of the movie, so call in to share the impact of the Project at (813) 418-6822.
