Dark Adaptation

Dark Adaptation Podcast explores all things macabre, mysterious, and downright dark. Join Brianna every Monday for a new episode full of intrigue, information, and entertainment! While we typically dive into lesser-known stories or Canadian cases, we do cover well-known cases and stories, too. For those more ”popular” cases that you thought you knew, we promise we’ll deliver so much information and intrigue you’re guaranteed to learn something new. And that’s not all - you’ll also experience a unique, cosmic twist from our special guest host, Steph, who delves into the charts and skies of those people and places we’ve heard of a million times. Our other guest host, Paige, is also featured on some episodes to bring us into the world of cryptids and folklore.

To this day, everyone from armchair sleuths to historians wonder what truly happened in the Redpath mansion that fateful day. Today, we know this case as “The Redpath M...

It was past 11 p.m., and they hadn’t had trick-or-treaters in hours. They probably looked at each other, debating who would go answer the door, when the doorbell rang again. Betty watched as Peter got out of bed and headed down the stairs. She h...
