54: After the gold rush, there was a silver rush in the 19th Century that came to define Virginia City, Nevada. And at the heart of VC is the Washoe Club, Nevada's oldest saloon. A place where millionaires (and Mark Twain) gathered to flaunt their wealth, sex workers of the time worked, and outlaws came to fight, the Washoe — and Virginia City as a whole — is teeming with spectral stories.

53: What are the Spook Lights of Oklahoma? In a region littered with such names as Devil’s Hollow, Devil’s Promenade and Lost Creek, it is not surprising to find that the far northeast corner of OK has something of a supernatural presence. Here, one can find the unexplained “Spook Lights” dancing along the back roads and in the dark woods of northeastern Oklahoma.

52: Terry Carnation may look, and sound, almost exactly like Rainn Wilson who we know from The Office, but he's definitely not Rainn Wilson. Instead, Terry Carnation is the longtime host of the late-night AM radio show Dark Air, and a trailblazer in the paranormal arena (and his ongoing exploits are documented in the Dark Air podcast). Terry is a legend in this field, and in this very special NightMerica, he joins Aaron to blow...

Ep. 51: Michelle Belanger, author of "The Dictionary of Demons" — along with 30 other books on the occult and paranormal — joins me to educate on the infamous entities. What is a demon? You think you know, but their origins are more complicated, and much older than you may think. Why do people not speak the name of a demon? (Especially when using something's name grants the user power over it — think not being afraid to...

Ep. 49 (A NightMerica exclusive story): Before he worked as an engineer on movies such as Jurassic Park, John Catapano was a pre-med student at William Paterson University in NJ. In 1974, as a student reporter for the newspaper, The Beacon, he was assigned to interview famed paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren (after the events of The Conjuring began to unfold, and before The Amityville Horror).

48: How do Hawaiians differ in their views about the paranormal, and how is a paranormal investigation different than what mainlanders might be used to? And what are the mysterious entities known as The Nightmarchers (and how can you protect yourself from them)?

Ep. 47: In 1803, in the London neighborhood of Hammersmith, a ghost had been plaguing residents. The sightings of a tall, white-clad figure were numerous, and at least two people had been said to have died of fright after an encounter. So when Francis Smith loaded up his gun in January 1804, he had a mission to capture a ghost. He may have succeeded instead in committing murder, and creating a ghost. What follows is a strange but t...

Ep. 46: Before there was the famous Patterson-Gimlin sasquatch photo in 1967, there was Ape Canyon. In 1924, a group of miners claim they saw a "Mountain Devil," and shot at it. They would regret that decision that night when they said they were attacked by a group of these Bigfoot creatures. This is one of the most famous, violent, and scary sasquatch stories -- so much so that the attack warrants a "true crime" la...

Ep. 45: If you visit Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY, you might happen upon a tall headstone for "The Martyr." It belongs to one Washington Irving Bishop, a mentalist with abilities so incredible (and some say supernatural) that doctors and scientists wanted to cut him open — and they did. This strange tale from the 19th Century is one of alleged murder and magic.
