Episode 56…Safety Harbor Isn’t Safe from Everything

There’s a shadowy figure who makes his way up a sacred mound every night to protect the land he loves. Or maybe it’s a famous Floridian who was related to Napoleon and brought grapefruit to the Sunshine State. Or maybe it’s one of the many spirits disturbed when the modern world bulldozed the burial mounds or a ghost from one of the mysteriously missing cemeteries. Or maybe it’s just Cecil.
 
The Trippers are making their way back into Pinellas County to Philippe Park in Safety Harbor to look into the legend of a land no storm can touch. In their first live tripping episode, Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist get into the folklore surrounding the location and the history of haunted mounds throughout the state and the country.

Tripping on Legends Live Looking for the Witch at Arbuckle Creek in Lorida, Florida

 

Love can move mountains, but can it also trap an odd triangle at the site of a hidden murder?

The Trippers follow the moon to Lorida, Florida, and hit Arbuckle Bridge to look for the ghost of a witch murdered for making a love potion and two spirits who may be with her as payment for the crime.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist talk about some of the odd steps they took before they got to the bridge and what happened when the sun went down, the protection circle was cast, and the two were left with nothing but a broken-down bridge between them and the ghostly legend.

Listen to Episode 53…The Lost Love Potion of Arbuckle Creek where we get more into the background of the story…

Tripping on Legends Live…Ghostly Hysteria Part I

It really meant something at the time. But does it remain in the light of the day?

Some things become so clear when you’re out in the field. You see it or hear it and the tumblers fall and you’ve found the missing link. You’re excited and share and then comes the blank stare.

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano spend some time Wednesday looking at some of the moments that they have shared where something happened and seemed important at the time, but when push comes to shove, you wonder whether you were making minnows into whales.

Tripping on Legends Live…Ghostly Synchronicity

After watching the new paranormal documentary Hellier and reading much of the criticism out there on it, this episode had to be done.

Every step you take towards the paranormal, it takes two steps towards you.

If you’ve spent any time looking into the unexplained, things start to pop up that could be ignored if they all weren’t pointing you somewhere. These synchronicities beg to be looked at and understood, and the more you try to look away, the more intense they become.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist look at the meaning of these messages and the part they play in the paranormal world and offer a few they’ve experienced as part of the Legends Project.

Watch the Newkirk’s interview on Spooky Southcoast where they discuss the doc:

…and if you have prime, watch the series to prep for the show and offer your opinion on the synchronicities in it.

Tripping on Legends Live…Why the Triangle Will Never Make It Big

The Bridgewater Triangle may be the most intriguing place in the unexplained landscape. No matter where your paranormal interest lies, you’ll find it this little patch of land in Southeastern Massachusetts. Rarely does someone hear about what goes on there and doesn’t want to know more.

Then why won’t the Triangle make the big time?

Despite the interest and the driving forces who involve themselves in the Bridgewater Triangle, the number of books focusing on it is relatively low. Despite stories made for TV and the movies, there are almost no television shows or movies made about it.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist examine why the outside world can’t seem to get it right and why there isn’t more out there about this supernatural superstar who’s been reduced to a bit character.

Check out some of the media that is out there on the subject at http://a.co/bO8yFSL.
