Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 149 Cursed Objects with J W Ocker

Spread the love
On this final episode of the spooky season , author J W Ocker joins me to lift the lid on some notorious cursed objects from around the world which he’s covered in his new book, Cursed Objects. 

Jason tells us how his journey into this subject saw him purchase his very own cursed object to get him into the mindset of what owning one would do to his belief that there are no such things as demonic inanimate possessions and how he tracked one down from Ebay. 

We look at the infamous Dybbuk Box, a modern creation or hoax that seems to have taken on a life of its own despite being outed as nothing more than a tall tale, his visit to Zak Bagan’s haunted museum to see it in real life, some of the disturbing exhibits, the strange story of the Black Aggie, the ring of Silvanius and its alleged connection with JRR Tolkein and much more.
