So tonight we're looking at some Famous Last Words...or Last Words of the Famous. Some are funny and some are sad but all will make you stop and think!

Sure, we all know the story of Little Red Ridinghood...or at least we think we do! In the Brother's Grimm version, a little girl in a red cap is swallowed whole by a devious cross dressing wolf, but she is then rescued by a noble huntsman and she lives happily ever after. But unfortunately for Red, in most versions of the tale, that's not how the story ends.

Tonight, based on a version of the story told by Professor Hannah B. Harvey in her course, The Art of Storytelling, Eric adds his own take on the fairytale and breaks down the symbols and themes found in the story. Strap in, theres a lot to unpack!

 

Also, Eric will talk about the show's gofundme campaign and it's possible heavenly origins as well as update you on the possibility of changing the shows name!

Tonight we look at one of the most famous ghost stories of Massachusetts, The Legend of Lucy Keyes and the Ghosts of Mount Wachusett!

In the spring of 1755, four-year-old Lucy Keyes went missing from her semi rural home in Princeton, MA. Professionals poured in to help search for Lucy, but eventually all hope was lost and most stopped searching for the girl. Only her mother held out any hope. Most believed a tribe of Native Americans had kidnapped or murdered the girl. Still others believed her quarrelsome neighbor, Tilly Littlejohn, may have known much more than he let on.

Some say Lucy never really disappeared. In fact, if you visit Mount Wachusett today, some believe there is a chance you just might run in to the ghost of little Lucy or her mother who roams the trails of the mountain still searching for her daughter.

Eric is still sick, but don't be afraid because while he recovers his voice, True-Blue Spookaroo and once-and-future guest Jeff Bergeron has stepped up and tried his hand at recording a ghost story for us! This was completely unsolicited but entirely welcome and very thoughtful. So big thanks to Jeff!

Tonight he tells us The Legend of Peggy's Cove...and the ghost said to haunt it! It's a quick story; just a little something to help tide you over until a new full episode is released.

Don't forget YOU can submit your own hometown haunts (ghost/paranormal/true-crime stories set somewhere near you) by reaching out to Eric via Facebook, Instagram or email!

You asked for it, and Eric delivers! We're diving into some little local legends that may not have enough information to create an entire episode based on, but when combined together the form Myths of Massachusetts Vol. 1!

 

We begin in Westford, MA, where some strange clues about the founding of America may lay written in stone. The town is home to what has become known as The Westford Knight: a supposed figure of a Scottish Knight holding his shield and sword carved into a slab of stone. Is it possible that a clan of Knights Templar fled Europe in the 14th century to make a new home in Westford? People have been disagreeing over what the design is and who could have created it since at least the late 19th century. If you visit the knight today, you'll see it has been given a very grand viewing area complete with a probably untrue history presented as complete fact!

 

Next stop, the scariest road in Billerica, MA: the haunted Dudley Road! Why should this semi-rural, forested road be considered so scary? According to the legends, there is an old abandoned insane asylum just off the road. Some say tortured should still linger and possibly seek revenge! Or maybe it has to do with the old abandoned convent. Stories about that place vary, but most involve a combination of nuns and witches...or witch-nuns!
