http://www.realityfred.com | In this episode of The Reality Fred Podcast, I'm joined by friend and fellow former grave digger, Dr. Stanley Stepanic of the University of Virginia. This podcast is the fourth part of our Haunted Halloween 2017 series, in which we'll release a new podcast each week until the end of October focused on 'spooky' topics. In this episode, Dr. Stepanic discusses his wildly popular course about Dracula. https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/14209/ We also dive into the topic of demonology. His paper, "Demonology: A Study of What Is Not" was published by Skeptical Inquirer in 2014. https://www.csicop.org/si/show/demonology_a_study_of_what_is_not "Stanley Stepanic received his PhD in the fall of 2012 in Slavic Studies. His professional areas of interest include general demonology, Slavic demonology, folklore, and the Russian language. His personal interests include weightlifting, video game collecting, retro gaming, music, and vintage science-fiction paperback collecting. He lives with his wife in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he teaches a popular course on vampires at the University of Virginia." - https://www.csicop.org/author/stanley_stepanic website: http://www.realityfred.com facebook: https://www.facebook.com/realityfred/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/realityfred/ twitter: https://twitter.com/therealityfred The Reality Fred Podcast is hosted by Fred Findley, Pittsburgh photographer and owner of http://www.finelineweddings.com
