Tripping on Kids looks at Ghost Apps

Do ghost hunting apps work?  Should you allow your children to use them?  It’s an odd paradox to think about; if you can turn your phone into a ghost detector, should it be so easily placed in a kid’s hand.

Join Legend Tripper Christopher Balzano and his daughter, Tripping on Legends with Kids star Ella, as they test the products and debate the issues.

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:

Episode 37…Haunted Children and Urban Legends

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.

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?

Episode 50…Where is the Dead Man’s Oak

radio player
Episode 50…Where is the Dead Man’s Oak?

They call it the Legend of the Dead Man’s Oak, but the biggest mystery might just where the damned and haunted tree may be.

Christopher Balzano and Natalie Crist get into one of the more well-known haunted urban legends of Central Florida, the Dead Man’s Oak. Said to be the site of a headless horseman and his ghostly stead, no one can quit agree on where the tree is located or why the man is trapped on the earth.

After getting into some of the different versions of the story and potential location of the tree, the Trippers dig deeper into the meaning of headless ghosts, including a look at the Dullahan and Crom Cruach.

We’ve started a more in depth look into the Swamp Witch story of Hog Island and some of the lore in the surrounding counties, especially Sumter and Hernando County. If you have any information on odd legends there, let us know at spookytripping@gmail.com.

Here’s the episode, There’s More Than a Swamp Witch on Hog Island to get a feeling for what we’re talking about:
