Welcome to the first official episode of the newly-rebranded Spooky Times!!! Host Eric D will explain the rebranding at the end of the episode but first let's talk about The Gloucester Sea Serpent! During the summer of 1817 hundreds of credible witnesses claimed to have seen something very unusual in and around Gloucester Harbor. No-one could say exactly what it was and they sometimes disagreed about what it looked like, but most described a 50 to 100 foot long sea serpent frolicking in the harbor. Some wanted to worship it, some wanted to kill it, everyone wanted to know what the hell it was! Much of tonight's story comes from an article entitled The Myth and Mystery of The Great Gloucester Sea Serpent by Tom Halsted writing for The Gloucester Daily Times. facebook.com/spookytimeswithericd
