Podcast: The New England Vampire Panic

  Vampires are a pillar of modern pop culture. From Edward Cullen to Dracula – they’re depicted as blood-thirsty, nocturnal immortals, sometimes with the power of transfiguration, an allergy to garlic and in desperate need of sun block. But you don’t hear a lot of real-life claims of folks actually encountering them anywhere but on screen or in the pages of a book. That’s because they’re entirely mythical. Or so we thought.

On this episode of Listen With The Lights On, we talk with folklorist Michael Bell. He's the author of Food for the Dead, an exploration of the New England Vampire Panic, a very real historical happening in the 19th century.
