Bone and Sickle show

Bone and SickleJoin Now to Follow

Bone and Sickle is a celebration of the intersection of horror, folklore, and history. Every episode offers a bounty of frightful tales, fantastic legends, and macabre historical anecdotes harvested by eccentric artist, collector, and rogue folklorist Al Ridenour. Dramatized readings of historical texts by co-host Sarah Chavez unfold within an immersive ever-shifting soundscape of original music, old folk ballads, intricately layered effects, and audio clips from horror films both classic and campy. Ridenour’s source books, though real enough, are said to be pulled from a vast private library of antiquarian tastes, part of a manor-house environment in the neighborhood of Charles Addams and Edward Gorey. Managing the estate with undue passion is Mrs. Karswell, whose voice can be heard in the program reading from various historical sources cited. The family misfortunes that have landed Karswell in Ridenour’s service are part of greater plan known to her through interior whisperings and private rituals of dubious validity. Under another name, Mrs. Karswell hosted a podcast called “Cabinet of Curiosities” long before Aaron Mahnke made use of the title.

Hidden Truth Show with Jim BresloJoin Now to Follow

<p>Welcome to Hidden Truth Show with Jim Breslo, a weekly series which dives deeply into controversial and unresolved issues of our time to discover the truth, irrespective of political correctness, religion, or politics. In the new Season 2, “Transgender Movement,” we explore what it means to be transgender, ask who is really behind the movement, and question whether it is based on science or political correctness.<em>  </em>Along the journey to find the truth, Jim interviews doctors, psychologists, theologians, politicians and leaders on both sides of the movement. In Season 1, “Las Vegas Shooter” we investigate the Las Vegas Shooting, the largest in American history. It has been many months since terror struck the Vegas strip, yet we still do not know how it was done or why. Conspiracy theories abound, but we find the truth through in-depth interviews of those closest to the truth. </p><p>Website: <a href="http://hiddentruthshow.com/las-vegas-shooter/" target="_blank">http://hiddentruthshow.com</a></p>
