Listen to Episode 54…Interrogating the Suspects at Indian Springs

With guides Richie Ferrara and Maxwell, the Trippers head to Punta Gorda and Indian Springs Cemetery, an infamously haunted location in Charlotte County with unsolved murders, criminal love triangles, and political corruption of the worst kind walking among the headstones.

Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano hit several locations to introduce themselves to the spirits before heading to where they are buried to try and uncover who might be haunting the location.   From Marshall John Bowman to Ma McGraw and her men, the suspects speak out looking for help and a bit of alcohol.

Listen to the episode where we give you the background of the suspect list and a breakdown of some of the history of the location:

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.

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

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…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.

Tripping on Legends Live…Haunted Schools

Somewhat edited, but we got most of the good stuff.

In light of our upcoming trip to Stetson University, Christopher Balzano goes live to discuss some of the folklore and theories behind school house ghosts.

He also gets into some of the stories he has experienced and documented, from Charlesgate and the Rehoboth Schoolhouse to the real story behind the song Jeremy.

The story that gets cut off at the end is about Session House at Smith
College, which you can read about here:

Tripping on Legends Live…Christmas Eve Ghost Stories

 

There’ll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories of

Christmases long, long ago…

After years of sleep, Tripping on Legends brings back the old tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve.  Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano channel their old school Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction as they share several tales and invite the listeners to decide which of them is true and which is just part of the urban legend side of the holidays.

Listen to the show where they explore why Christmas ghost stories are dead in America:
