Tripping on Legends Live: Fort DeSoto One Year Later

We call it the legend trip that nearly ended the show, but what actually happened at Fort Desoto that didn’t make it to the episode. More importantly, what happened in the days and weeks that followed that changed the course of Tripping on Legends.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist talk Ft. Desoto, touching the dead in a real way, and how much might be too much.

Please share your moment that changed your ideas about the paranormal.

Listen to the original Fort Desoto Epsiodes:

Episode 39…Dating the Ghosts at Fort Desoto

What would it take for you to date a ghost?

Before their upcoming visit to Fort DeSoto, Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist look into some of the legend that keep popping up from the location. From crying ghostly mothers to phantom voices of Native Americans and soldiers to ghostly visions of accidents and suicides from the nearby Skyway Bridge, this may be the single most haunted place in Florida.

And then there is the ghost of a dead fisherman who looks to pick up single ladies on the island.

Episode 40…Fort DeSoto is Haunted, But Not Like You Think

It was a long weekend in St. Petersburg, Florida, as Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist headed across the dreaded Skyway Bridge to Fort Desoto to follow up on the haunted legends there.

Natalie takes to the water to try and hook the ghost of the Romantic Trout Fisherman. While she’s putting her moves on the spirit world, Balzano takes to the battery of the fort to check out rumors of footsteps and shadows.

As the sun sets on the base, they venture to the outskirts and ruins of the old base to try and connect with the dozens who have died of yellow fever and are said to still walk the grounds, including a mother rumored to be heard crying for her dead children.

Tripping on Legends Live: Ghostly Dreams

Someone you loved in life comes to you in your sleep and tells you everything is going to be okay. A dark forest you see when you close your eyes is full of shadows and becomes the next place you hike. People you don’t recognize reveal something in your dreams that ends up being true.

Forget the analysis and symbolism. Does the supernatural show itself in our dreams.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist talk about experiences they’ve had and how dreaming might fit into folklore.

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.

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:
