Episode 47…The Three Ghostly Witches of Florida

Why are there stories of ghostly witches in locations throughout Florida…and why are most of these places actually haunted?

The Trippers are on the track of three different witch legends attached to ghost stories in Florida.

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano turn their eyes to the state capital of Tallahassee to explore the infamousWitch Grave of Old City Cemetery. They then travel east to the story
of Wiccademous and her path of torture before settling on Hog Island and the lost settlement that has now been saddled with a witchy story to explain the ghosts seen there.

Episode 46…A Haunted Day in Sarasota with the Kids

Can there be a place in Florida where legendary cryptids and legendary ghosts come out together to play?  If so, it seems like a great place to bring Tripping on Legends with Kids to get the full picture of what might be inspiring the haunted folklore in Sarasota.

Natalie Crist, Christopher Balzano, and Chris’ kids travel to Myakka River State Park to hunt down three legends which have given the woods and the swamp an eerie reputation.  After checking in on the Headless Camper again, the Trippers spend their time looking for the notorious Skunk Ape and the ghosts of suicide victims at the Canopy Walkway and Tower.  Not all that that is spoken of there is true, but not all of what they experienced is spoken about in the legends.

Episode 45: Back Across the River to Astor

Little children, a mysterious man, and a pukwudgie who looks a bit like a gator.Whatever is running through the stacks at the Astor Library isn’t hiding from anyone. Some of the spirits even like to go home with you.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist travel back over the St. John’s River to take another look at what might be haunting the library in Astor. After spending some time getting the stories from the employees and debating what might be causing the activity, they get ready for a night there with the lights out and the old school séance methods out.

You can see the video where the employees explain the pukwudgie at:
