Ep 87: It Was A Brilliant Cure, But We Lost The Patient: Asylums Part 2

You may have noticed the irony that can be attached to the phrase, ‘what do we have to lose?’ So often things can go horribly wrong just after someone asks that fateful, seemingly rhetorical question. That’s sort of what happened once people decided to stop just confining people with mental illness, and started trying to ‘cure’ them. Join us this week as we explore medical treatments for mental illness from shock therapy to lobotomy; and meet those whose voices sounded alarm from Kesey to Kennedy.

Ep. 211 – Haunted Cemeteries 2

There is one absolute for all human beings and that is that we all will die. Throughout history, humans have disposed of and honored their dead in various ways. Burying the dead and marking their resting place has been the most popular and it has carried over to our modern era. Cemeteries have become a record of history for towns. Who lived here? When did they die? Why did they die? Was there a plague, a war, a natural disaster that devastated the population? Some of the interred at times wander from their resting places. There are tales of specters roaming about the tombstones in certain graveyards. Weird lights and mists have been photographed. On this episode, we have four cemeteries that seem to have unexplained activity. Those cemeteries are the Silver Terrace Cemetery in Virginia City, Nevada, which is actually divided into eleven separate cemeteries, Union Cemetery in Easton, Connecticut, Old Quaker Cemetery in Camden, South Carolina and Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. The combined histories of these graveyards covers the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s. Every class is found in these cemeteries and each has its own legends and hauntings. Join us as we bring you Haunted Cemeteries 2! The Moment in Oddity features Timothy Smith’s window grave and This Month in History features the Riot Act in Britain.

Ep 86: We’re All Mad Here: Asylums Part 1

 

The Lunatic Asylum has loomed large in the public imagination since its very establishment as an institution. We have never been sure what to do with the mad, to use the vernacular of a bygone era. Despite our admitted ineptitude, we have been more than willing to try and do something with them for ages. Most of the things we did for most of recorded history have been horrifying, barbaric and ineffective. Join us this week as we explore the history of asylums and treatments for the mentally ill. We will discuss Nellie Bly’s breakthrough account of her experiences in the Blackwell’s Asylum, and the documentary that recorded World War II veterans’ experience PTSD, ‘Let There Be Light’. We will even spend a little time discussing the death of George Washington, and being glad that medicine has made a few advances since then.

Ep 85: Gen. Zaroff, I Presume: Hunting Humans

We, as humans, enjoy our place atop the food chain. Whether it’s true or not, we’ve done a great job convincing ourselves we are basically invincible when it comes to predators. Lions, tigers, and bears, oh, balderdash. However, what if it wasn’t an animal that was pursuing us? Join us this week as we explore the myth of Man the Hunter; the story of The Most Dangerous Game, and the truth that makes them resonant.

Ep. 209 – Tilty Abbey

The village of Tilty is in the county of Essex in England. The county is known for its Medieval Gothic architecture using various stones, wood and bricks in the construction of buildings that have thus endured for centuries. Some of these structures have not fared well though and one of these is Tilty Abbey. All that really remains of the abbey are some crumbling stone walls in the field and a chapel outside the gates built for worshipers who were not monks. The abbey was built in the 12th century and was a religious and social center. Some may say that a religious location is a source for the supernatural and it would seem that Tilty Abbey remains such a source today with rumors of strange creatures, headless monks wandering around, curses and other strange occurrences. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of Tilty Abbey and her village! The Moment in Oddity features Murder Bottles and This Month in History features the birthday of Mildred “Babe” Didrikson. Our location was suggested by listener Bob Sherfield.
