Episode 52…Murder, Ma, and Moonshine at Indian Springs

Sometimes the history of a haunting is more bizarre than the ghosts themselves. There are things that walk the rows in Indian Springs Cemetery in Punta Gorda, Florida, but you can’t sorting out who might be making an appearance without coming across some of the darkest secrets and sketchiest characters in Southwest Florida’s history.

Trippers Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano break down the suspect list, including a dead policeman, a young girl who may be destined to haunt two different locations, and a love triangle whose fingers might be in all the other stories.

Thank you to Richie Ferrara for bringing us the lead on Indian Springs and History’s Mysteries of Southwest Florida for much of the research mentioned in the show.

Tripping on Legends Live: Shadow People, Jinn, and that Creepy Place in Your Town

VIDEO

These are the ghosts in your neighborhood…

Last week’s Tripping on Legends episode had Christopher Balzano sit down with his daughter and discuss all things haunted children.

Listen to the episode:

On the heels of that discussion, Christopher Balzano sits down and looks at how we learn to tell ghost stories and how we start to understand the paranormal from the stories we hear and tell as kids. He also looks at the local hauntings people experienced in their neighborhoods growing up.

Balzano then takes a few minutes to open up a discussion on what shadow people might be in light of recent developments on some of their legends.

If you are in the local area, come out to see The Trippers at the SWFL UFO and Paranormal conference in January.  You can check our event page for more details:

Tripping on Legends Live…The Ghostly Message

We look for messages in our dreams, the stars, and way tea leaves fall in a cup. What happens, however, when we have a ghostly encounter we can’t quite make sense of. Chances are we start focusing on the why and what it all means.

Join Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano as they look into why we give meaning to the ghosts in our lives and what some they have experienced might mean.

Tripping on Legends Live…Enough is Enough

When do you get it out there?

As legend trippers, we’ve stumbled into as many questions as answers. These rabbit holes tend to get pretty deep, so do we let people come on that journey with us?

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano debate when enough is enough and the research has to end. They also reveal some of the details they been holding back for a bit on a few legends.

Tripping on Legends Live…The Paranormal In and Out

What made you first enjoy that feeling of being scared and a little excited by the things you could not explain? What helped you move from fan to follower?

What are the things that make you want to leave it all behind?

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano look at how they were influenced by things like Poltergeist, In Search of, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and then get into those pesky things that try to force us out.
