New England Legends Podcast
Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger
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!
The Pigman of Northfield
In Episode 83, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger drive up to Northfield, Vermont, with a bucket of slop in search of the infamous Pigman. In 1971, a naked man with the head of a pig terrorized the small town of Northfield in the area of the Devil's Washbowl. Multiple witnesses were rattled by a vision they can't explain, and one claims he was attacked. Could this mysterious man... or creature still be lurking in the woods of Northfield?
Greenfield's Screaming Bridge
In Episode 82, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger take a drive up to Greenfield, Massachusetts, to explore Eunice Williams Covered Bridge. It was here on March 1, 1704, that Eunice Williams was executed with a tomahawk shortly after the Deerfield Massacre. That event has haunted the community, and would go on to haunt this bridge, ever since. They say on moonless nights you can still hear her scream.
Connecticut's Cursed Village
In Episode 81, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger explore the ghost village of Dudleytown in the woods of Cornwall, Connecticut. Throughout its 150 years of history, this small hamlet is full of stories of strange death, suicide, and madness. Some believe those tragedies are tied to a curse on the Dudley family that started in England back in 1510. No matter what, life on this mountain would have been difficult.
