Eric Dwinnells is back to talk about The Boogeyman as he's known in the US or The Bogeyman as he's known in the UK. A boogeyman is any form of a mythical creature used by parents to gain compliance from their children. Sounds a little messed up, but in a way, I suppose you could argue that Santa himself is a type of boogeyman! Tonight Eric will take you on a world tour and introduce you to some of the most infamous boogeymen said to inhabit this fair globe of ours. He'll also tell you about the boogeymen her feared as a child (including Disney's Mr. Boogedy, Jesus, and the iron centipede at the "naught children's playground" and magical thinking.

Host Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Fatima Elmi are back to talk about the classic television show Unsolved Mysteries..again! Last time they walked you through the history of the show its self, but tonight they're getting down to the nitty gritty and discussing some of best segments you may have forgotten!

Segments discussed include:

Witch Hunt: The story of Ann Sigmin, a seemingly ordinary housewife and mother, whose life took a dark turn when she started practicing black magic. She is accused of helping her lover, Garey Goff, murder of her estranged husband, Charlie Sigmin.

Teri's Killer: A strange tale involving a strange man named Tim McClure who is suspected of killing his own mother on his wedding night! Tim seems a bit left of center and his actions on the days around the time of the murder are shady AF, but is there a chance he didn't do it? And will there ever be justice for Teri McClure?

 

Richard's Rampage: College student Richard Church comes home from his first year at school to find his parents are getting divorced and his long time girlfriend, Coleen Ritter, doesn't want to date him any more. On the morning of the day before he's due to head back to school, Richard snaps and breaks into the Ritter's home where he murders Coleen's parents and attempts to murder Coleen's little brother as well as Coleen herself. 

 

Scared to Death: The perplexing tale of Cindy James who endured 7 years of psychological and physical abuse by unknown assailants...or did she? Despite one instance where a knife was stuck through her hand and another where her home was set on fire, police believe Cindy staged all the incidents herself. In 1989 she was found dead, tied up in an abandoned yard. The police claim it was suicide, but Cindy's friends and family believe her killer is still at large.

Love the idea of Bigfoot but sick of all the stupid shows where a bunch of rednecks go out with night vision cameras to bring back footage of deer and scare themselves silly with howling and knocking noises? So is Spooky A S host Eric Dwinnells! That's why tonight, he's getting right to the good stuff; stories of When Bigfoot Attacks!

Tonight we'll cover a President Teddy Roosevelt's killer Bigfoot tale, the story of Albert Ostman who claims to have been kidnaped by a family of Bigfoot (bigfeets?) who he lived with for a week, and finally the tale of Muchalat Harry, a Native American who was also kidnaped by a Bigfoot.

We'll discuss both Disneyland and Disney World and Arron will tell us about some historical ghost who may have been there before the parks were even built and some of the famous spectral residents of certain rides such us the creepy ginger man of Space Mountain aka Mr. One-Way, and construction worker (George) said to haunt Pirates of the Caribbean, the crying boy said to be a real ghost in The Haunted Mansion and of course, where the ghost of Walt Disney himself may be found.

Also discussed: Can ghosts get "satisfaction?",  why you shouldn't be miserable in the afterlife, Eric's guide to parenting/ghost hunting aka bait children, what happens when you provoke a Disney ghost, and how/why Aaron will bug famous people he works with to take pictures with his Star Wars toys.
