Slender Man: The Phantom of the Internet


Thorne & Cross explore the myth, history, and roots of the first internet-age boogeyman, a tall faceless specter known as Slender Man. Listen in at Thorne & Cross: Carnival Macabre.

Come one, come all!

Legends and lore, monsters and myths, hauntings and horror … bestselling authors Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross are digging deep in their research files to bring you face-to-face with the unknown, the unusual, the bizarre … Come one, come all! 

Listen to previous shows:

The Blue Lady of the Moss Beach Distillery: On the windswept cliffs below San Francisco, walks northern California’s most famous ghost, the Blue Lady of the Moss Beach Distillery. Hosts Thorne & Cross take you back to 1927, to a speakeasy known as Frank’s Place, which was frequented by rum runners, politicians, and criminals. How did the Blue Lady die … and why does she still haunt the distillery?

Psychic Machinery: Thorne & Cross explore the world of psychic machinery — the paranormal phenomena invoked by the expectations of the living. Is it a ghost, a residual haunting, wishful thinking … or something more?

Walking Sam: Guest Alex Dolan discusses the South Dakota Sioux legend of Walking Sam, the mind-controlling spirit that made local news and the New York Times in 2015 when suicides peaked on the Pine Ridge reservation.
