Episodes of Wednesday's Weird Stories

The eccentricities of individuals tend to bring out the extremes in people. This week's story brings the tale of a minister's challenges in dealing with his congregation's changing perception of him.  Despite their lack of understanding, Revere
In a time of strife and contention, a figure rises up to draw the masses together.  The question is, what are his intentions? This extremely short tale gives us a glimpse into the manifestation of one of Lovecraft's more notorious creations fro
It's stories like this that make me glad we have better regulations on prescription drugs.  Tonight's episode is a tale of misfortune and bad chance as a weary scholar tries to revive his heath and vitality.  Many of our stories have a haunting
For many, there is a feeling of peace and calm inside the walls of a church.  Our protagonist was hoping for the same feeling and a brief respite after a stressful few days. What he found instead, chilled him to the core and brought him face to
Wednesday's Weird Stories returns after it's brief hiatus with one of my favorite Lovecraft tales.  The Music of Erich Zann weaves a harmony of supernatural horror and mystery in true Lovecraft fashion.  One of the things I really enjoy about H
This week's story falls more into the weird realm for me rather than the paranormal or spooky.  There are themes throughout The Invisible Girl that challenge not only the sensibilities of the day, but are still things that we consider taboo tod
You might want to have some tissues at hand for this week's story.  Listen in as we hear the tale of a young girl's struggle through life in a world that just doesn't seem to make sense.  While this tale is fiction, it is based in the unfortuna
Told through the style of a journal, this tale by Guy de Maupassant is a haunting one that makes you question all those around you.  We often think of criminals as easy to spot and recognize, but that is certainly not always the case.  Unfortun
There's a little less spooky going on this week, but R.W. Chambers still paints a vivid picture of the haunting nature of lost love.  This tale is part of a larger collection of stories under the title of The King in Yellow and I'm sure we will
If you know me, you had to see this coming at some point.  If the cat guy didn't do "The Black Cat", it would just seem, well, weird.  This classic tale weaves the story of a man's descent into madness and murder. Not only does this story demon
Yes. THAT Samuel Clemens.  You may be asking yourself, what Mark Twain was doing writing ghost stories and I asked myself that same question.  This week's story was written as a satire of the popular haunted house tales that were springing up l
As someone who works in the paranormal field in my spare time, this story hit a lot of really hot spots for me.  Of the various haunted house tales that I have read and heard, this one really spoke to a lot of what I have seen, heard, and felt
I'll be dipping into the Cthulhu mythos this week as I share a tale of a stranded sailor and the terror of what he finds upon reaching land.  Dagon is a fairly widely used character in the mythos, and I feel like it represents a blending point
This week's tale is a prime example of why you do not brush off the warnings of the locals and go wandering a foreign countryside on your own.  The hubris of travelers can easily be their downfall as well.  
Savage.  That is the only word to describe the revenge plot that Montressor has for Fortunado in this classic tale from Poe.  The next time somebody you have been picking on, asks you to go for a drink, you might want to think back to this stor
This week's tale brings a twist to the usual quest for immortality.  Listen in for one of Mary Shelley's lesser known works that questions how far one would go for love and what happens when your life long wish gets fulfilled in the most unexpe
This is the first live reading that I have done for Wednesday's Weird Stories and I kept the intro and outro mostly intact as well to give a little history on the tale and make it more entertaining (maybe?). This is a tale of wanderlust and lon
This has always been one of my favorite poems from Poe.  In it we hear a tale of crime and guilt from the voice of the accused himself.  It also shows a clear plan for how NOT to get away with murder.
If you are unfamiliar with this holiday story, it is the tale of an unhappy tree who just can't seem to appreciate what it has.  As a fable, it brings to light the moral of being thankful for the blessings you are given and living in the presen
In the town of Ulthar, it is said that no man may kill a cat. This is one of Lovecraft's shorter stories about a mythical town in the dream realm. Listen in as I share the tale of how this law came to pass.
Oh man! We had the best opening to the show ever.  If you weren't listening, you certainly missed out.  Why is that?  Well, largely because the first half of the didn't record properly and if you weren't listening live, that info is gone to the
Tonight's news brings us updates on the Chicago Mothman as well as some of the world's favorite cryptozoological legends, Bigfoot and Nessy!  After the break, Deidre and I tackle some of the astrological powerhouse events that are happening thi
Tonight's episode delves into the mystery of Chicago's latest paranormal legend, a kick ass show on History Channel called American Ripper, and covers the perfect gift for the GoT fan in your life.  Deidre and I also discuss the origins of the
Join us as we discuss how to win elections with witchcraft! Or at least we'll clue you in to the guy in Kenya that is doing his best to achieve that.  More importantly, Deidre and I will be talking about energetic clearing and grounding.  What
Join us for the soft launch of AGR with a discussion on such lofty topics as celebrity ghost hunting and paranormal fundraising.  Oh, and we also dig into psychic scams and religious assholery (that’s a technical term).
