47-Urban Legends: In the Dark

For this Halloween episode, we are doing something different. Instead of diving into the stories of the past, I’m telling stories of the present. Urban legends are a more modern version of folklore where, instead of telling stories of hydras and butter cats, we tell stories of things that might just exist. In these, people are the true monsters, and the most mundane of situations can be strange, dangerous, and terrifying.

Not a lot of intense violence, but someone does lose an arm. A dog dies, too, but it's not graphic...just sad...

Most of the scares are psychological in nature, of people watching us when we don't know it. I find that to be very creepy, and young children might as well.

    In the podcast you mentioned something about clowns and the uncanny valley of representation of human and the actual human where the image is repulsive something and mentioned that you will link an article in the notes. But I only saw the article about the Japanese woman in the cupboard.

    “Faceless Old Woman” is more appropriate for this episode than you may know. She’s a character from Welcome to Night Vale, and she secretly lives in your home.

    I don’t see the article you said you’d link to about why clowns are so frightening.
