Dealing with the Devil – Southern Macabre
Hey, y’all, and welcome to Southern Macabre. I’m Aeryn and I am so glad you could join me today. I know it’s Missing Person Monday, but I want to take a step back and just talk to you today.
I started Southern Macabre to focus on cold cases and to remember victims of solved crimes. When that became heavy, I added Paranormal Wednesday and at the same time I gave missing persons their own day. This has led to my depression and anxiety getting out of hand.
When I interviewed Jon Flannagan with From Ashes to Brush I realized how depressing my content was to me. That episode made me realize what Southern Macabre could be, a podcast that makes light of death and demystifies it in a way. I want to do more episodes like that one. Don’t get me wrong, these victims absolutely deserve justice, but maybe I should leave that to someone else who can handle the heaviness?
What I would like to do instead is talk about southern macabre art, macabre history, death rituals, continue paranormal Wednesday, etc. I am probably going to drop back to two days a week starting next week. I’m taking the rest of this week off to find stories and to do some pre-recording. I’ll be back next Wednesday to tell you about an intriguing haunted place near the University of Alabama.
That’s going to do it for me for this week. Come back next Wednesday – I promise it’s going to be better than ever. I hope y’all have a wonderful week and I will talk to y’all later! Be blessed, y’all!
