A Bloody Mess: The Strange Story of Mercy Brown and the Vampires of New England (Episode 112)

01:05:23 Download (120MB)

You’re feeling unwell, your eyes are gaunt, your skin is pale, things are looking grim. Naturally something sinister is at play…a vampire, perhaps? Well, that’s what the citizens of New England thought in the 1800s as “consumption” otherwise known as tuberculoses spread across the country killing 25 percent of the population. In this episode of Para(normal), Nicolina tells Cody the legend of Mercy Brown and the New England vampire panic, which drove the hunt for the “undead” and the belief that vampires were the root cause of this deadly disease.

Disclaimer: Para(normal) does not believe in fighting against COVID-19 the same way that mass hysterics tried to fight “consumption” in the 1800s, and you should not take the advice of Cody Crain (or any podcast personality for that matter) on issues that require science and the assistance of extensive medical professionals. The end.
