About Us

Each week, folklorist, author, and historian Jeff Belanger and radio host Ray Auger explore the ghosts, monsters, folklore, history, and legends of New England. If you give us about ten minutes, we’ll give you something strange to talk about today. The bizarre is closer than you think!

Latest Episodes

From the Vault: Capt. Jedidy Cole and the Devil

In Episode 140, while still under quarantine, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger introduce you to an episode from our vault: Captain Jedidy Cole and the Devil. It’s an old Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Halloween story about our own origins of the jack-o-lantern. Maybe listen to this one by candlelight.

From the Vault: Razor Shins

In Episode 139, while still under quarantine, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger introduce you to an episode from our vault: Razor Shins of Aroostook County, Maine. Logging camps used to tell of a Native American spirit with razors for shins who demanded an offering of alcohol from the greenhorns in the camp. Not making the offering can prove deadly. This was the first episode where we break into song!

Pausing the Adventure

In Episode 138, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger are going nowhere! We’re bummed that COVID-19 and quarantine has forced us to pause the production of our regular weekly podcast. But, we are planning to put out some kind of new content each week until we can get back out there exploring legends. We’d love your input and stories to help get us through these strange times. So please reach out to us through our Web site (OurNewEnglandLegends.com), our social media, or call or text our Legend Line anytime.

In Episode 137, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger head to High Street in Lancaster, New Hampshire, to the site of an 1880 unsolved serial murder that took the lives of six people in two adjacent houses. Was it a contagious illness, or poison? Authorities were torn, but one young woman had the motive.

Goody Hallett: the Witch of Wellfleet

In Episode 136, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger walk the beaches of Wellfleet on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in search of the ghost of Goody Hallett. In 1717, the pirate ship Whydah sank in a rough storm off the coast of Wellfleet. Some say the ship was sunk as a result of a curse aimed toward the captain, Black Sam Bellamy, by the Witch Goody Hallett.
