EPISODE 116 SPRING SPIRITS
Spring is a season of resurrection, a season of spirits. On episode 116 of What Are You Afraid Of? authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas share ghost stories, strange tales and the history of the ancient holiday of Easter—previously known as Ostara. They begin with a creepy true ghost story submitted by a show fan in Florida. The Shadow Figure tells the story of the demonic oppression of a family after they move into a new house. English folksinger David Walton narrates this tale of turning crucifixes and shadow figures. Then Fox & Phil share the history of Easter. The holiday goes all the way back to the ancient Egyptians who colored eggs to celebrate the sun’s blessing. Fox has new clown news! And he tells some more ghost stories from the Jersey Shore about another ghost ship. “Water! Please! Just one sip.” David Walton finishes the show by reading part one of a story by the author Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch: the tale of desperate men in the north called The Seventh Man.
