Our first cycle of episodes will explore some local legends from York County, Pennsylvania beginning with Toad Road and the Seven Gates of Hell. In the first episode we talk a little about Toad Road and the Seven Gates, where they are, what they might be, and what they are not. We disprove some urban legends and head to Hex Hollow for discussions about powwow, witchcraft, ghosts, will-o-the-wisps, cryptid creatures, and the famous "hex murder".

In the first Episode, we’re going to talk about Invisible Entities... well, when I say Invisible, sometimes they show themselves, and when they do, you would wish that they had not... So join me for some true tales of Predators in the Woods; of hunters, hikers, campers' encounters with things that defy explanation, things that horrify and provoke terror in those who they show themselves to… Are they watching us? Stalking us? Hunting us? Join me for some creepy true stories..
(Intro by Paul Gledders, Music by Robert Austin)
Timothy Renner shares with us some of his weird experiences, the strange 'chessboard' game he's been playing in the woods, what he thought was going to be a bigfoot sighting, early UFO sighting, Magick, his haunted house and more. Mike Clelland and Joshua Cutchin join me to help him make sense of it all.
Outro Music is Sticks from Tuimothy Renner's band, Stone Breath, from the album, Cryptids.
