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!

This tipsy Halloween episode brought to you by the diseases that could account for vampire hysteria, and the place where werewolves and vampires intersect.


Don't drink silver, y'all. Blue skin.

Cryptid, or just one part insane, three parts religious frenzy, and six parts mysterious real animal?

You decide. This week I talk about the French incident that led to several movies and books, and then some gruesome "worst werewolf" countdown.

This is not your usual "documentary" approach to vampires. This is a vampire reference tool, so to speak. Or something.

For the super geeky, along with my own riffing and gushing over certain vampires, for Halloween season please enjoy this (possibly beginning of a series) maxi episode.

Because of course. You can't have spooky season without vampires. As far as I'm concerned, you can't have anything without vampires, so to speak.

Here are some lesser known (at least to most Americans) types from other countries.

Water...what is it about bodies of water, and ghosts? Maybe it's that some truly horrible things have happened in and around water. This episode starts small...and finishes with a most popular and well known tale.   Japanese Ghost Stories: Himeji Castle and Okiku's Well - (   (1) Aunt Julia in Ruddock : nosleep (   Truk Lagoon: The Haunting WWII Graveyard Under The Sea (

John Polidori almost fell into obscurity as a writer, when in fact, he was the father of vampire fiction as we know it.

Here I give you his story, why he was overshadowed at times, his untimely death, and excerpts from his diary.

You'll recognize some of this story, and the other players in said story.


The following links will take you to free reads of his diary, and his infamous tale...

Well, here I am with a MAXI episode, that has such a deep rabbit hole, I lost track of time, then had to stop! WOW.

It began with a simple idea of Montauk and Stranger Things...
