Where is the new Hex-Files?

Where is the new Hex-Files?

October 7, 2020

Hey there explorer, are you looking for more Hex-Files? There’s a new episode and its only Hex-Files! Click here or find us where ever you listen to podcasts!

And a new Cursed is coming this Friday where Bones talks to Cyndi Brannen of Keeping Her Keys about Hekate, synchronicities, curses, familiars, poison plants and more! But until then, why not go make a drink and subscribe to Hex-Files. This is what you’re missing-

Hex-Files 7. Zombie Goblins & Escape Goats: On this exploration we talk about the South African Tokoloshe. It's been described as a zombie created for mischief by a witch, a goblin type sprite, and even a sort of evil spirit. It's been blamed for deaths, murders, assaults, and of course, trickery. Is it just a catchall excuse or a real being looking for trouble?

If you didn't know, Hex-Files has scurried out from under Cursed into the dark unknown and has become it's very own podcast! As a bonus, you can hear the latest episode here too!

Do you know what Randonauting is? We may be late to the game on talking about it but we went on our own randonauting adventure this summer and have been dying to talk about it. We also discuss the story that was in the news about the tiktokers that found a suitcase of body parts when they tried randonauting. We definitely experienced some glitches in the simulation but just how real is it?

Hex-Files 4. May We Come In, We Have Cheese?

May 29, 2020

This Hex-File involves the Black Eyed Children! They're creepy, probably not human, and just want to come inside(and we might let them). We also recount some odd signs we saw in the mountains that we're pretty sure were the Fae trying to get us. Sound like a lot? Well it is...this mini episode is actually a full episode! That's because during recording we heard a growling/rumbling from the closet that you can actually hear on the episode!

On this episode, we explore the Wendigo and it's original lore as well as some modern interpretations. Is it really a cryptid or more a cautionary tale? Does the Wendigo even have antlers? Can it possess and drive a person to desire human flesh? It certainly seemed that way for one man and his entire family. So join us as we serve up one of our favorite legends...we hope you brought your appetite.

March 13, 2020

We all know and hate them and unfortunately they are everywhere! Who are they, you may ask? They're the gatekeepers and gaslighters in the witch community. Yes, they plague us everywhere, but we're focusing on those that reside in the witch and pagan community. We talk about how to do what thou wilt, see the red flags, set and keep boundaries, and even how to identify if you're in a coven or a cult. So lend your voice, no matter how loud, and stand your ground with us as we shine a light on and call them out.

Hear about some of the sightings and even the fact that the Jersey Devil may have friends that he hangs out with at the shore (we are not even kidding). So take a trip with us down Route 9 through the Pine Barrens and keep your eyes peeled....just make sure you don't stop.
