Tonight were talking deals with The Devil! Specifically 3
figures from pop music who have been accused of giving their souls
to Satan in exchange for talent and/or wealth and fame: Robert
Johnson, Bob Dylan, and Michael Jackson. Did Robert Johnson meet
the devil at a crossroads and surrender his soul to him in exchange
for guitar greatness? Who is "the high commander" that won't
let Bob Dylan stop touring? Did little Michael Jackson make a deal
with the devil to become the greatest of all The Jacksons and
eventually The King of Pop? What happened when he tried to get out
of his deal with the devil?
Join Eric and returning guest cohost Brian Toney as they discuss all this and more (like the 80's Ralph Macchio movie Crossroads!). And, if you've been longing to hear a killer Ed Bradley impersonation, this is the episode for you!

Spooky AS Theme by Occultic Overtones
Eric Dwinnells sits down with guest cohost Jackie Weatherbee to talk about the witch hysteria that swept Salem, MA and much of New England in the 1600's! Why did a group of young girls living in Salem Village start to act "possessed"? What made them accuse their neighbors of witchcraft? Why did the government execute those who were found guilty? What happened to key players after it was all over? Found out on this highly informative episode of Spooky A S!
This episode ran very long and bandwidth is pricey so much had to be cut, but you'll eventually be able to find most of the "outtakes" on youtube or at our official website:

Just in time for St. Patric's day, Eric and guest cohost Tom Cole talk about 2 of the most famous beings in Celtic mythology, the Leprechaun and the Banshee! Are Leprechauns really the drunken tricksters we think of today? Will a Banshee come to kill you in the night with her soul-piercing screams? What's a Redcap? Find out on this special holiday episode!
Warning: This episodes contains animal noises which may have been mistaken for Banshee screams. You may find these noises terrifying...or just really annoying. Don't worry; they are short!
Also discussed: Why the show is called Spooky A S on certain providers, words Eric and Tom have trouble pronouncing, their plans for the holiday, Boston drunks, and the infamous Irish Goodbye (aka ghosting).
There was a good amount cut for time from this episode so check the website/youtube for additional content!

Welcome, foolish mortals! Join Eric and guest cohost Aaron Cohen (webmaster of the Disney-focused website magicandmisadventures.com) as they give you a pretty in-depth history of the world's greatest dark ride, Disney's Haunted Mansion (or should we say "mansions"?). From Walt Disney's original concepts for the attraction right up to changes made to the attraction just a few years back, nary a stone is left unturned. It's a much lighter topic than normal because sometimes it's nice to take a break from "seriously spooky" to "silly spooky".
Warning: We do explain how some of the effects are achieved so if you don't want to know, cover your ears for that part!
Aaron explains some of the differences between the Disneyland and the Disney World versions of The Haunted Mansion and Eric tells us about the time he went to Disney World dressed as Jason Voorhees!
