The only way you get a rose, is if you die… Welcome to Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery.

Join Brett and Harley as they dig into another mysterious cemetery. We might just blow the lid off this whole damn place.

This graveyard in Midlothian, IL dates back to 1834 and is located in a suburb of Chicago. With it’s proximity to Chicago, it has been rumored to be a dumping ground for the mob. There have been a multitude of grave robberies and desecrations over the years. Apparently, this has led the nether world to get pissed at the regulars.

There have been sightings of two-headed ghosts, shadow people, a half-wolf/ half gorilla, hell hounds as well as many other nasty phenomenon.

22 – Grave of the Devil’s Baby – Ravenswood, WV

Play

devil baby

Every town has their urban legend, but not every legend is straight from the gate’s of hell.

The Grave of the Devil’s baby is one of the former. Join Brett and Harley as they dig up some truth of this legend.

This grave site is located in Ravenswood West Virginia, and dates back to 1810. Nestled on the banks of the Ohio River, this sleepy hollow once belonged to George Washington himself.

The legend dates back to 1917, when a young child, George Elwood Sharp, passed away and was buried in the local graveyard. Due to the tombstone fad at the time, the grave marker included a picture of George. Now, it is said that the picture glows in the dark and has fangs and horns. People also hear a baby crying in the night.

Happy Pie Day! On tonight’s episode, Brett and Harley tip-toe through the Jersey Shire on a quest to track the most elusive Wematekan’is. Wematekan’is are part of the Lenape Tribe’s lore in and around the High Bridge, NJ area. Are these creatures gnomes, leprechauns, dwarves or sprites?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There is a bolder field in Pennsylvania in which about half of all the rocks ring when struck…..as opposed to the normal thud you expect….and science doesn’t know why.

Ringing Rocks Park is a 128 acre park located in Upper Black Eddy. On today’s episode, we discuss the mystical properties of the ringing rocks as well as other rock based mysteries….you should “tune” in. From Stonehenge to Machu Picchu, Easter Island to the blarney stone, we are going to crack this geological mystery wide open. What does science know about these stones? Are these rocks killing the animal and plant life? What did scientist from Lafayette College find out about the ringing rocks?

What are the mystical properties associated with stones? Was this phenomenon caused by a UFO, radiation, or ley lines?

We will also examine the CIAs tips for investigating UFO reports, and why they would release this info to the public.

As a bonus, we will investigate the mysteries of Homestead Coffee Roasters. Is it a coffee shop, a general store, a restaurant, or a coffee roaster?
