Dealing with the Devil Southern Macabre

Today I'm going to tell y'all about a Blues musician who may, or may not, have sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads in rural Mississippi way back in the 1930s. Almost 100 years later you can still listen to him play guitar and sing. To read today's transcript you can visit the website.

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!
