Pinky Pod

Author S. Roit, having fun and shooting the sh*t on whatever subject takes my fancy, especially true crime, the macabre, occult, paranormal, supernatural, spiritualism— worlds that often collide. I include skeptics and grifters, as I’m finding the drama between people surrounding the events is often more interesting than the event!

Tried to get more on the Berini poltergeist -- there isn't much to be had.

That's okay, I think I saved it in the end by giving you the true story that inspired the movie POLTERGEIST.


Have a listen.

Welcome to my brain only half edited!


This episode, between my own ramblings, I give you some ghost pet stories to warm your heart, some creepy haunted zoos, and take a left turn into a poltergeist tale that may become an entire episode, later.

Keep an ear out for the moment I no longer felt alone...

Poltergeists, hoaxes, comedy, and ghosts writing literature through ghost writers.  Oh, and an heir being given a leg up the society ladder by a ghost.


Come along with me on a fun paranormal episode, that begins in Bristol, England.

Got some rye? We may need to pack a lunch for this trip to Kentucky, then Kansas. I know where we can get the Sauerkraut. It's in a cave, in a park...


By the time we get to Atchison, that spot in Kentucky will seem like a walk in the park.

Don't forget some toys. We might meet a ghost called Sallie.

Or is she?

First, we go to Brazil for the sad, wild case of Maria's poltergeist.

Next, a trip to Scotland, for a cranky male poltergeist in a churchyard.

Or are they?

You decide.

What's the first official written use of a word like vampire? Vampir, vampyr...



Serbia. Come with me as I explore Serbia's first officially documented case, as well as their most famous vampire, who appears in a book written 17 years before Dracula. Folklore is of course, much older than written word, but we can't trace that so easily.

I then finish up with a terrifying tale from Japan.

What's spooky season without Dracula, and who is Dracula, without Bela?


This week I bring you a brief biography of the legend, much of it straight from his son. He did so much more than play Dracula -- which really, was ONCE.


Unless you count the stage plays, of which there were hundreds.

I do discuss the film, as well, and I also touch on the production of the Spanish version of the film.

Listener voted cult...that doesn't seem all that cult like, in one sense, after researching. More like nude, semi-anarchist hippies.

From Russia to Canada.

And who is the real bad guy, here? Not necessarily the "Freedomites."

It isn't what expected before researching, and goes to show, there are always at least two sides to a story.

It's Spooky Season! Time to run amok, amok, amok!

This episode is lighter, and fun, and full of superstitions, so don't forget your pennies, your salt, and to cross your fingers.

You'll also learn the best way to have a funeral in different cultures, including making skin jerky!

But first?

A wee tale about a Scottish witch, and the search for her head.

Kicking off cults, complete with a top ten countdown at the end!

This week I'll ease you into the subject of cults with one that sounds rather pleasant, and follows a man who to this day has a massive influence on every day life, prints.

I also ask for listener votes, so pay attention! We're going for "my favorite cult," here.

Unscripted, drinking, and googling.


Ghostly court witnesses, bigfoot sex, and UFOs.  Also?

Crowley pops up. Why is he always lurking?

A case that prompted a statement from the King himself.


This is the story of the Grimes sisters, which to this day, technically remains unsolved. You'd think it would be a straightforward thing. 

You'd be wrong. Twists, turns, deception and chaos.

I finish the episode with a recording of the man who has taken up the case all these decades later.

Surprise bonus episode.


Who was NOF4? 

Was he insane? Did he have contact with aliens? Did he know things we don't? Was he actually a genius?

All of the above?

Find out, like I did, after what began as a completely different research project, and stay for the end, which is saved by Ivan.

The true crime story behind a haunting, and the naming of a place.

Dead Woman's Crossing.

Just get the divorce, people, and walk away.

The case is technically unsolved, but a lot of us think we know what happened. We also seem to have a lot of gossip.

Visit Oklahoma with me, circa 1905...and the source of phantom wagon wheels.


Bonus: story from a twitter follower.

Imma make you look over your shoulder for a week with this one. Maybe longer.

Two unsolved cases, creep factor goes up to eleven. Most of the episode deals with "The Watcher," and I don't mean the film.

Tune in, and find out what Sha Na Na, and Clarice Starling have to do with the TRUE tale...

Then, let me know if you drop your phone like it's hot when you hear the last tale.

Listen and you'll understand. 

Anyway. The biggest, mass UFO sighting you probably never heard of. I may need to red string this.

Buckle up, and take notes.
