Become a Patreon supporter at www.themidnighttrainpodcast.com This week we're taking the train across the pond for another creepy adventure. That's right, we are doing one of our creepy episodes! It's been a while so we figured it was time. This week we are headed to what some people say is one of the top scariest countries in the world! Not only that…we know we have some awesome listeners here. This week we are headed to creepy Portugal! We are gonna try our best to find the coolest, creepiest places for you guys. I'm just going to assume there's going to be a bridge in here someplace. So without further Ado.. Let's fucking rock and roll!!! So first up we're gonna do a little history lesson. Will keep it somewhat sorry and sweet since if we got into the complete history of a country of the age of Portugal, it would be an entire episode on its own. To get there history of this country we went to the source, portugal.com and an article written by Goncarlo Costa. The history of Portugal starts many ages ago, when the so-called Iberian tribes inhabited the territory of today's Portugal. Then, in the beginning of the first millennium BC, Celtic tribes invaded and intermarried with the local Iberians, creating what is now known as the Celtiberians. The Lusitanians, who inhabited the interior region of Portugal since the Iron Age, are considered the forefathers of the Portuguese nation. This is why today we have names like Lusophone, someone who speaks Portuguese, or Luso-American, a Portuguese American person. They were known for successfully fending off the Roman armies until the death of their leader, Viriathus, known as a hero in Portugal. The tribe was considered a worthy adversary by the Romans, so much that they named the province of the whole territory of modern Portugal (south of the Douro River) and part of western Spain after them. The Romans left various works, such as baths, temples, bridges, roads, theaters and statues; some of them are still found in different parts of the country. This lasted until the Barbarian invasions, when Germanic tribes migrated to various parts of the Roman Empire. In Portugal, the territory became controlled by the Germanic in the 5th century. The Kingdom of the Suebi controlled Galicia and the North and Center of Portugal, while the Visigothic Kingdom controlled the rest of the Iberian Peninsula, including the rest of Portugal, until eventually conquering the Suebi and, consequently, the whole of Iberia. This is when the rigid class structure appeared in the country, with a Nobility and Clergy getting more and more political and social power. In the 8th century, the Islamic Umayyad Caliphate invaded the Iberian Peninsula from the North of Africa. Al-Andalus, the Islamic name for the Peninsula, became a part of the Caliphate, and Portugal with it. The Portuguese kept lots of things from their Muslim past, like many of their words, architecture and the famous ‘azulejos'. The Christians held on in the North of the Peninsula, creating the Kingdom of the Asturias. This was until the Reconquista, when they reconquered the lands from the Moors, the Muslims. In this Kingdom, at the end of the 9th century, a county based in the now north of Portugal was established, the County of Portugal. The county grew in power and, at the end of the 11th century, a Burgundian knight named Henry, who was fighting in the Reconquista, was crowned as ‘Count of Portugal' and merged it with the County of Coimbra. Henry's son, Afonso Henriques, proclaimed himself King of Portugal in 1139 with Guimarães as its capital. This city remains known until this day as the “Cradle of the Nation' by the Portuguese. However, it was only in 1179 that a papal bull officially recognized Afonso I as king. The Reconquista continued with the Algarve, the south of the country, finally being conquered in 1249, and Lisbon becoming the capital in 1255. Since then, Portugal's land borders have remained almost unchanged, being considered one of the longest standing borders in Europe. The Kingdom of Portugal remained very important in Europe's (and especially Iberian) politics, waging several wars against Spain, creating an alliance with England (the longest standing alliance in the world, lasting until today) and starting the “Age of Discovery”. In this Age, the country built a vast empire, having territory all over the world, from South America to Oceania. They started by exploring their coast and adventuring into the Moroccan coast, hoping to continue the Reconquista to the North of Africa. Then, the Portuguese sailors started to adventure into the open sea, when they discovered the islands of the Canaries, Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde. Subsequently, the Portuguese explored the coast of Africa, setting trading ports, and tried to discover the maritime route to India, which they did in 1498, under the explorer Vasco da Gama. They continued to explore and look for trade around the world, from Africa, passing through Arabia, and reaching Japan, setting several outposts, many of them having developed into colonies later on. In 1500, they reached South America and started the colonization of Brazil. The Empire started to decline, however, when the Dutch, English, and French got in the game. They started to surround or conquer the scattered Portuguese trading posts and territories, diminishing their power. On the Battle of Alcácer-Quibir, in 1578, Portugal lost its king, becoming part of a dynastic union with Spain that lasted until 1640, when it finally gained its independence again. After that, the country never became the great power it once was. It lost several colonies (including its largest one, Brazil) and trade routes, it saw its capital being destroyed by an earthquake in 1755 and it was occupied during the Napoleonic Wars. From then on, Portugal was a minor power in Europe, having just some colonies in Africa and Asia and never becoming an economic powerhouse. Then, in 1910, due to corruption, dissatisfaction with the several Kings and the loss of claimed African lands to the English, the monarchy ended and a Republic was created. Fiercely secular, to the point where it was antichurch, filed with corruption, government instability and near to bankruptcy, the regime came to an end with a military coup in 1926. A military dictatorship was installed and then, a fascist-like regime, the ‘Estado Novo' (‘New State'), headed by António de Oliveira Salazar. This period was marked by authoritarianism, lack of freedom and, from 1961, by the Portuguese Colonial War. All of this ended when, in April 25th 1974, the Carnation Revolution happened, carried out by the Armed Forces Movement (Movimento das Forças Armadas – MFA), a movement of young left-leaning captains of the Portuguese Armed Forces. With the Revolution, democratic reforms were made and the first free elections with multiple parties happened, as well as the independence of all of Portugal's colonies. It also started the PREC (Processo Revolucionário Em Curso – Ongoing Revolutionary Process), a period when conservative and left-leaning forces inside the MFA confronted each other, marked by political turmoil, violence, instability, and the nationalization and expropriation of private lands. It came to an end on the 25 November 1975, when the MFA moderates appeared as the main force. Nevertheless, revolutionary achievements were not forgotten, with the Constitution pledging until this day to realize socialism, as well as declaring extensive nationalizations and land seizures as irreversible, many, however, now overturned. Nowadays, Portugal is one of 15 most sustainable states in the world and considered the third most peaceful. It has high living standards and a good economy. It was a founding member of NATO, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries. It entered the European Economic Community (now the European Union) in 1986 and is one of its fiercest supporters, even having produced a European Commission President. Ok so that's a brief…incredibly brief mini history of Portugal. Really the take aways are…super old, plenty of things happened to make the place creepy over that many years. So let's see what creepy stuff Portugal has to offer! What better way to start than with a sanatorium! Valongo Sanatorium to be exact. The construction of the Mont'Alto Sanatorium began in 1932. Due to the appearance of a large number of people who had contracted tuberculosis, there was a need to expand the facilities, and these expansion works were completed in 1958. construction of these hospital units were carried out in high altitude places, due to the purity of the air, and also because they were away from the populations to avoid the effects of contagion. The sanatorium only operated for a short period, having been inaugurated in 1958 and closed in 1975, after which it entered a profound state of disrepair. Due to its dimensions, it is considered one of the most imposing buildings of its type in Portugal.Its building is large, with an area of approximately 88,000 m², having been built with a view to housing about 300 patients. The building was designed by the architect José Júlio de Brito , who was also responsible for other prominent structures in the city of Porto, such as the Coliseu or Teatro Rivoli . The sanatorium complex, which occupied nine hectares, also included a school, a laundry room, a water reservoir, and a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Sick. The installation of the Sanatorium in Valongo was part of a phase in the history of health in Portugal, during which the government undertook the construction of several specialized establishments to combat tuberculosis, a disease that was ravaging the country at the time. This period began in 1899, with the foundation of the National Institute of Assistance to Tuberculosis, which began the construction of several sanatoriums in different parts of the national territory. In 1930, efforts against tuberculosis were renewed in the north of the country, with the creation of the Assistance to Tuberculosis of Northern Portugal by António Elísio Lopes Rodrigues, and at that time, planning began to build a sanatorium that would house the sick in that region, who had lower economic resources. Serra de Santa Justa was chosen, where the air was healthier, in addition to being isolated from urban centers, in order to reduce the risk of contagion. Shortly after, the Sá family donated a plot of land in Serra de Santa Justa, allowing the construction of the building, whose works began in 1932. However, the works were suspended due to lack of funding, having been resumed due to the support of the local populations. On July 5, 1940, ATNP began building the Casa de Nossa Senhora da Conceição, to support the children of the sanatorium's patients. According to the Diário Popular of 3 January 1956, the finishing works and equipping of the sanatorium were already under way, and it was expected to be completed during the following year, and that it would have a capacity for 350 beds. However, the works were only completed in 1958. Another reason for the delay in the work may have been the opposition by the Companhia das Minas de São Pedro da Cova to the construction of the building, because it was being installed inside an area destined for coal mining, a few kilometers away from the mines. However, at the time of the sanatorium's inauguration, mining was already entering its final phase, ending up closing in 1970. Some of the users of the hospital were the mine workers themselves, who suffered from occupational diseases such as tuberculosis and silicosis . The Sanatorium of Monte Alto was inaugurated on 1 November 1958, being the last one to be opened in Portugal. The inauguration ceremony included a religious service at the Chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Enfermos, the unveiling of a commemorative tombstone, a tribute to the League of Combatants of theFirst World War, and concluded with a port of honor offered by the board of directors. of the sanatorium. During the ceremony, the admission and accommodation process of the first clients, all veterans of the First World War, was also carried out. Although it was planned for three hundred patients, its initial capacity was only fifty beds, and during its operation it accommodated 350 people. In the early 1970s, there began to be greater control over the tuberculosis disease, which began to be fought in a different way, through the outpatient system. In this way, the sanatoriums ceased to be useful, and were progressively abandoned or underwent a process of readaptation for other purposes. In the case of the Montalto Sanatorium, the closure process began in 1972, due to the low number of tuberculosis patients in the Porto District. At that time, the building already had only a few patients, having been thought of its adaptation as a psychiatric hospital or for the returnees from overseas, which did not advance. Due to the process of closing the Sanatorium, Casa Nossa Senhora da Conceição ceased to function as a boarding school, starting to support only external students. The building was abandoned after the April 25 Revolution , when the last employee left, although it was only officially closed in 1975. Following its closure, it was completely looted, being a of the main reasons its connection to the Estado Novo, as it was mostly built and used during that regime. This connection to the Estado Novo also had a negative impact on the collection of funds, making it impossible to carry out works on the building. It was also used as a training ground by firefighters and civil protection, who performed drills there and destroyed some walls. Later, the sanatorium was used for paintball games and photo shoots, and various ceremonies related to the supernatural, such as rituals, were also performed there. The building was also hit by several fires, accentuating its degradation. History is awesome and fun and you know we love it but…. The reason we're here is for creepiness! There are stories abound of how haunted this place is. Given the numerous people who died there it makes sense to us! So what kind of stuff are we talking about here ? Well, let's look. Well paranormal investigators have been spending time here for years, when there's no paintball matches going on, to try and find crazy shit! There have been numerous reports of strange noises and things moving around. There have been entities seen and apparitions spotted. It's hard to find much in English so finding pages from Portuguese websites and trying to find studies was tough but we managed to find one study where a group of friends were exploring the abandoned hospital and had some interesting things happen. They talked about how they started hearing strange noises while they were exploring. The noises seemed to be following them around the building. They talked about how they had a heavy feeling around them as they explored. The sounds seemed to keep getting closer to them. They claim that things started getting knocked over and moved on their own. At one point, one of the group claimed they saw a shadowy figure seemingly watching them. At that point they all decided it was time to go! Sounds like a pretty crazy experience! True or not? We like to think so! Can't go and episode without fucking tuberculosis… Teatro Lethes: The building that today is called Teatro Lethes, began as a Jesuit College – Colégio de Santiago Maior, founded by the then Bishop of the Algarve, D. Fernando Martins Mascarenhas -, whose license was granted to them on 8 February 1599. of learning, above all of a religious nature – the “first university in the Algarve”, as someone has called it. In 1759, the Society of Jesus was banned from the country and its goods were confiscated. The College of Santiago Maior closed its doors. With the occupation of Napoleonic troops commanded by General Junot, the premises of the former College were raided and desecrated in order to enlist the soldiers there. Years later, in 1843, the College was auctioned off by Dr. Lazaro Doglioni, who had publicly expressed his intention to build a theater in Faro similar to S. The Latin inscription on the facade of the building, monet oblectando , can be translated as “instructing, playing”, thus emphasizing the cultural concerns of the promoter of the construction of this concert hall. The inauguration of Teatro Lethes took place on 4 April 1845, as part of the celebrations for the birthday of Queen Maria II. Later, in 1860, it was expanded by Dr. Justino Cumano, nephew of Lázaro Doglioni. On September 11, 1898, the so-called animatograph was exhibited for the first time in Faro., installed in the Lethes Theater as it is the largest and most distinguished cultural space in the city. It was restored between 1906 and 1908 to improve acoustics and comfort. The decline of the shows and, consequently, of the hall, begins in 1920, with the Theater closing in 1925, having sold the property to the Portuguese Red Cross, in whose possession it still remains. The Lethes Theater room was later ceded, by protocol, to the Algarve Regional Delegation of the Ministry of Culture. In the North wing, restored and adapted in 1991, the regional services of the Ministry of Culture operated. On October 5, 2012, by protocol between the Municipality of Faro and the Portuguese Red Cross, Teatro Lethes recovered its initial design. The Algarve Theater Company – ACTA was installed as a resident structure. ACTA, in addition to presenting shows of its own creation, also promotes hospitality at the Lethes Theater, and is also responsible for managing the equipment. this history was taken directly from the theatre website! There are a couple stories about this place that prettier day lead to its hauntings. The first is the story of a ballerina who was in love but was not loved back. She was so distraught that she hung herself in the middle of the stage. Some versions say that she was driven to the brink by the demands of theater life. The second is that of a soldier's body that was found inside one of the walls. There isn't as much info on that story as the ballerina. Staff and visitors claim you can hear the ballerinas footsteps in the theater to this day. There are also reports of a shadowy figure moving about as well. Could this be the ballerina still performing for the people? Or the soldier patrolling the theater? Who knows but it sounds like a cool place to visit!! The Castelinho of Sao Joao, Estoril The area between Estoril and Cascais, out on Lisbon's Atlantic coast, is rife with buildings of character. Many of them are designed to give the impression of miniature castles, indeed some of them were fortified because they were built during times of instability within the Iberian peninsula. In the 1980s, a wealthy socialite, José Castelo Branco, was looking for just such a property and found one that seemed ideal in Sao Joao, a district on the edge of Estoril. The day he went to view the property was a beautiful sunny one and so he decided to walk along the cliff path which adjoined the property. As he was walking back to the building, he saw a young girl. She didn't speak, but simply stared at him. In his own account of the events of that day, Mr Castelo Branco said that he felt a compulsion to jump from the edge. This feeling was, he believed, coming from the young girl. He immediately elected to leave the property and ruled out buying it. On hearing what had happened, someone from the local town hall did some research into the building and discovered that a young blind girl had fallen from the cliffs to her death in the eighteenth century and that several people had reported seeing her at the castelinho since, each claiming that they felt a strong will to jump while she looked at them. Let's check out a cemetery now…cus those are always fun! This one is called the cemetery of pleasures. After the city of Lisbon was hit by an outbreak of cholera in 1833, causing thousands of deaths, it was urgent to create a large cemetery for both rich and poorer victims. It has the weird name of Cemetery of ‘Pleasures', called after the nearby neighborhood (Prazeres) with the same name. Many of its tombs are big mausoleums, some with the size of small chapels. Most of the Prazeres mausoleums belong to rich, old or ‘important' families, like the Palmela family. Many of the mausoleums are richly elaborate, have fine sculptures and decorations. There are also statues of the deceased. It's like a ‘city in a city' for the dead, with well-defined lanes (70! ) and funerary chapels that were built to look like little houses. The unusual thing about a lot of these graves is that they have little “front doors” with glass windows through which you can see the caskets and remnants of the dead and their visitors. Most of the trees are a species of cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), much used in Portuguese cemeteries. The cemetery is one of the largest in Lisbon. The Autopsy Room , which was in the chapel until the Morgues were created in 1899, is one of the curiosities that can be seen, as well as the Sala do Acervo , where some of the oldest funeral records can be consulted. This is another way of helping the visitor to interpret the different ways that human beings have had to culturally, socially and psychologically approach Death, throughout different times. As with the many famous families and celebrities, another thing that adds to some people thinking there's more going on at this place is the presence of many freemason symbols and you know how that gets people talking! At any rate, being a cemetery you can imagine the tales of hauntings surrounding this place! Everything from apparitions being seen wandering the grounds, to Disembodied voices. People have seen orbs in person and in pictures. I mean being able to see into these little houses and see the caskets and remains is creepy enough…add haunting to that…and it's definitely a place we want to go! Next up, Quinta Das Conchas The Quinta das Conchas (or the garden of shells) in Lisbon is best known for its expansive parkland, just to the north of the city centre. Families can be found playing here during the warmer months and countless dog walkers can be seen at any time of the year. The house at the heart of the estate though has a darker past which is lesser known. In the early part of the twentieth century, when Portugal was still a colonial power, the owner of the estate was a wealthy man called Francisco Mantero Belard. Like many of his countrymen, he was accustomed to having servants who took care of the running of his home. So, when he moved into the quinta, he acquired the services of a slave from Sao Tomé and Principe. There was nothing unusual about this at the time, other than that he elected to keep this slave woman in a small cage. She was made to live like an animal and, according to local myth, subjected to a variety of cruel treatment for several years. People working in the manor house in modern times have reported hearing wailing coming from empty rooms, as well as dramatic changes in temperature. Let's switch it up and talk a little about Portuguese folklore! We're gonna talk about the coco or coca. There are also many other names for this guy or gal including Cucuy, Cuco, Cuca, Cucu or Cucuí. It is a mythical ghost-monster, equivalent to the bogeyman, found in many Hispanophone and Lusophone countries. It can also be considered an Iberian version of a bugbear as it is a commonly used figure of speech representing an irrational or exaggerated fear. A bugbear is described as a legendary creature or type of hobgoblin comparable to the boogeyman and other creatures of folklore, all of which were historically used in some cultures to frighten disobedient children. The Cucuy is a male being while Cuca is a female version of the mythical monster. In Spain, Portugal, and Latin America, parents sometimes invoke the Coco or Cuca as a way of discouraging their children from misbehaving; they sing lullabies or tell rhymes warning their children that if they don't obey their parents, el Coco will come and get them and then eat them. Continuing with the mystery surrounding this child scarer, the Coco also does not take on a specific physical form. For the Portuguese it is a dragon that is represented every year in the celebration of Corpus Christi…at least that is what I've source says.. another says: "In Portuguese côco, refers to a ghost with a pumpkin head. The male form is known as Coco, and the female form as Coca. It is said it's hard to tell the difference between the two. It seems that parents are to blame for the invocation of the Coco as a way of punishment for their wayward children. They would sing rhymes warning their children if they did not obey their parents the Coco would come and eat them.".... So a pumpkin headed goblin… Although the Coco was ghostly monster like in appearance, that wasn't the most frightening thing about them. Children would be scared out of their wits at the idea of a monster that could eat them and not leave a trace. So imagine being a child forced to sleep with a lullaby of a monster that was coming to devour them. Duermete niño, duermete ya…que viene el cuco y te comerá (sleep child, sleep now…or else comes the coco to eat you). Creepy, so this folk tale seems to have many different versions depending on where you look. We think that due to the fact that many Latin American countries also use this in folklore as well as there being a certain in Brazil, it's hard to actually put the facts together. Every place we looked about this tale had a little bit of a different take, hopefully we got it close as we mean no disrespect to the tales! You know what else Portugal has…aliens, at least a few. He's a couple stories! On September 4, 1957, four Portugal Air Force pilots claimed to have seen and chased some UFOs. They took off with their bomber aircraft from the Ota Air Base in Portugal under Captain José Lemos Ferreira leadership (the others pilots were sergeants Alberto Gomes Covas, Salvador Alberto Oliveira e Manuel Neves Marcelino). When they were heading towards the city of Portalegre, Captain Ferreira noticed a light above the horizon and warned the others. The light changed its own sizes a couple of times, first increasing, then shrinking. After several minutes the pilots noticed a small yellow circle getting out of the craft, and 3 more circles appeared later. When the UFOs were near Coruche, the bigger aircraft climbed out of the Earth as the smaller ones disappeared. The bombers landed without any problems and Captain Ferreira declared: "after this, do not come to us with that Venus, weather balloons, aircraft and similar stuff which have been being used as general explanations for almost every case of UFOs". On September 10, 1990, around 9:30AM and for about 50 minutes, a small "balloon" was seen hovering towards a small football field, on a small village called Alfena in the outskirts of Porto. The object was described as "a small turtle with long legs" with a metallic shine. The people present got scared and a group of construction workers started throwing stones at it, and the object hovered backed away, leaving the site. An amateur photographer took several pictures of the shapeshifting object; the pictures were considered by several experts as real and the witness accounts by the simple folks were not considered hoax. We also found this first hand account.. "My name is Cristina Marto de Pimental. I am a reporter. On New Year's Eve, December 31, 1997, my husband and I were at a seaside party in Funchal, which is on the South shore of Madeira Island, in the Atlantic Ocean, 912 kilometres East of Morocco. We were watching the New Year's festivities, all the fireworks in the sky. Then several people at the party called my attention to a red and motionless light above Funchal. The OVNI suddenly made a very tight circle, returned to its initial position, and, a few seconds later, it accelerated at great speed in a vertical direction. We were all quite amazed at the sight. A British couple at the festival videotaped the UFO as it hovered. The next day I telephoned the Fuerzas Aereas Portugeses (FAP) headquarters in Lisboa. The Portuguese air force told me that they'd had no flights, neither planes nor helicopters, and no satellites were over Madeira at that time." Whoooooo aliens!!! Time for some quick hitters, you beautiful bastards! Quinta da Paulicea, Agueda: Not far from the city center of Águeda, Quinta da Paulicea sits in the middle of large unkept plot of land surrounded by a wrought iron fence. It is the classic image of what a Hollywood haunted house should look like. It was inhabited by an Águedense family, who had moved to Brazil in the late 1800s, but returned in the early 1900s, naming the home after the city of São Paulo. Much of the family succumbed to the influenza pandemic in 1918, with the exception of Neca Carneiro. He was a patron of the community's sports and cultural programs but died childless at the young age of 37. The home has sat vacant ever since, due to legal constraints with the family back in Brazil. Although not certified as haunted, there are many reports of supernatural encounters at Quinta da Paulicea. Some have heard the neighing of horses where the stables once stood. Others have been frightened by the sound of a shotgun blast or a gentle pulling on hair. A worker in the garden suddenly experienced such an intense headache that he fled and never returned. Whether haunted or not, this beautiful home has many stories to tell. Mines of São Pedro de Cova – Gondomar: The village of São Pedro da Cova was largely an agricultural community until the discovery of coal in the 1802. The exhausting and dangerous industry of mining soon took over. Several generations of miners worked here until low oil prices forced the mines to shut down in the 1970's. All that's left of the mines are these ruins. Neighbors say spirits of the miners protect the ruins and the mine shafts. Others claim to hear screaming from the deep holes. Termas de Água Radium, Sortelha: Legend has it that this beautiful structure, in the Guarda District, was built by Spanish Count Don Rodrigo after learning that the natural “healing waters” might cure his daughter's skin disease. News of the waters quickly spread. In the 1920s, the site became a restorative spa known as the Hotel Serra da Pena. In actuality, the waters were radioactive, seeping from a uranium mine not far away. Radioactivity was all the rage in the 20's and 30's, so the site bottled the spring water and sold it under the name “Radium Water.” Of course, after radioactivity was studied further in the 40's, it became apparent that the healing qualities of radium water actually carried the opposite effect. The hotel went out of business in the 50's and has been abandoned ever since. It is said the site is haunted by the many people who drank from the contaminated spring. Sanatório da Serra da Estrela – near Covilhã: This massive structure was built in 1936 by Portugal's railway department as a treatment facility for its employees suffering from Tuberculosis. The building was later leased to the Portuguese Society of Sanatoriums on condition of receiving all patients needing treatment. However it was closed in the 1980's and left to deteriorate for decades to come. Rumors circulate that it is haunted by its many former patients. The Sanatório has now been refurbished and transformed into the luxurious new Pousada Serra da Estrella. Quinta da Juncosa – Penafiel, Rios de Monihos: This old farmhouse was home to the Baron of Lages and his family. The Baron was very jealous, and suspected his wife of infidelities. Legends have it, the Baron tied his wife to a horse and dragged her around the farm until she died. After discovering his wife was innocent, the Baron killed his children and committed suicide. They say the Baron's guilt keeps him from resting in peace. Ghosts of the Baron and his wife are said to be seen around the property. So we did this episode in honor of our Portuguese listeners who have keep us in the top 10 in Portugal for quite some time. We thank you guys so much for that. But we have one request for you…in every creepy episodes so far until this one…we've found a haunted bridge, Texas had like 50. In all of my searching the recesses of the Internet, I could not find a single reference to a haunted bridge in Portugal, we need our Portuguese listeners to hit us up and let us know any stories about haunted bridges. It was tough to find a ton of information on a lot of these places so hopefully we did them right! If we made any mistakes or got anything wrong, you know what we say…blame the Internet!!

Bible Reading: Acts 17:24, 27-28Feeling a little nervous about babysitting at the home of a family friend, Anna rang the doorbell. Mrs. King greeted her with a smile. "All ready to work?" she asked. Anna nodded. "Good." Mrs. King brought her inside and pointed to a list of emergency numbers on a table by the door. "If you need anything, help is only a call away." After Mrs. King left, Anna played several games with the two kids in her care. "Your mom said you could have toast and jelly for an afternoon snack," Anna told them after a while. "Why don't you pick out another game while I get it for you." She went to the kitchen, fixed toast for each of the kids, and took it back to the family room. As they began to eat, they were all startled by the loud buzzing of the smoke alarm. Oh, what do I do now? Anna thought in a panic. She jumped up. Lord, please show me what to do. Right away she knew she needed to get the kids out of the house.As they hurried to the door, Anna noticed the list of emergency numbers and grabbed it. Once they were safely on the far side of the yard, she took out her cell phone and dialed the number for the fire department.With the siren blaring, a fire truck soon rounded the corner. Neighbors came to watch as firefighters hurried into the Kings' house and then came back out, smiling. "Everything's fine," they said. "Smoke from a piece of bread caught in the toaster tripped the smoke alarm." Anna was relieved, but she was also embarrassed because she had called the fire department over burned toast. "You did exactly the right thing," the firefighters told Anna. "Never take a chance when there could be a fire."When Anna got home, she told her family about the excitement. "You know what?" she said. "After I called the fire department, it still took a little time for the firefighters to get there. But when I asked God to show me what to do, right away He helped me remember that it's important to get out fast if there's a fire." She grinned. "Mrs. King told me help was only a call away, and she was right. I can call on the Lord for help anytime." -Hazel W. MarettHow About You?Isn't it amazing that the Almighty God who made all things is right there, ready to help you at all times? He wants you to call on Him when you're concerned about the best way to handle all kinds of situations. Talk to Him about anything that troubles you. He's always ready to listen. He hears every prayer and will help you in every situation.Today's Key Verse:He [God] is not far from each one of us. (Acts 17:27)Today's Key Thought:God is always available

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Lakethen Mason, Executive Director of Memphis FilmWorks, who shares his experience spearheading a project to get to know hundreds of Mid-South neighbors through engaging conversations, which has culminated into a multi-volume oral narrative collection. "Our Neighbors, Our Stories: in search of common ground" is the first in a three-part book series that chronicles the art, life, history and diverse culture of Memphis. It captures the shared experiences of families, friends, and residents who lived through unprecedented times. The book also assesses the challenges, changes, and revitalization efforts of historic Memphis neighborhoods through the lens of families who call these neighborhoods home. The book is a literary interpretation of 100 of the 300 interviews conducted with support from The Kresge Foundation and The Assisi Foundation of Memphis, Inc. During the interview, Lakethen talks about the process of putting the project together and conducting the interviews, honoring the experiences of our neighbors and finding connection to strengthen our community, important takeaways, and opportunities for the public to join in the effort, including their Book Launch and Honors Ceremony on Thursday, May 19 at the Halloran Center for Performing Arts.Visit www.ourneighborsourstories.org to learn more.

Anyone reading comments in online spaces is frequently confronted with a collective cultural loss of empathy. This profound deficit is directly related to the inability to imagine the life and circumstances of the other. Our malnourished capacity for empathy is connected to an equally malnourished imagination. In order to truly love and welcome others, we need to exercise our imaginations, to see our neighbors more as God sees them than as confined by our own inadequate and ungracious labels. We need stories that can convict us about our own sins of omission or commission, enabling us to see the beautiful, complex world of our neighbors as we look beyond ourselves.In this lecture, Dr. Mary McCampbell will look at how narrative art–whether literature, film, television, or popular music–expands our imaginations and, in so doing, emboldens our ability to love our neighbors as ourselves.----Dr. Mary McCampbell is an associate professor of humanities at Lee University where she regularly teaches courses on modern and contemporary fiction, film, and popular culture. A native Tennessean, she completed her doctorate at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (UK); her research focused on the relationship between contemporary fiction, late capitalist culture, and the religious impulse. Her academic and public-facing publications span the worlds of literature, film, and popular music, and this interdisciplinary focus is also present in her new book, Imagining Our Neighbors as Ourselves: How Art Shapes Empathy (Fortress Press: April 5, 2022). You can find her writing in various faith and culture publications such as Image Journal, The Other Journal, Relevant Magazine, Christianity Today, Christ and Pop Culture, and The Curator. She has been one of the organizers of Calvin College's Festival of Faith and Music since 2009, and she frequently speaks and teaches on the theological significance of popular music, film, and fiction. Mary was the Summer 2014 Writer-in-Residence at L'Abri Fellowship in Greatham, England and periodically lectures at English L'Abri. She was a Scholar-in-Residence at Regent Theological College, Vancouver, for the 2018 winter term.You can read Mary's writing and find out about her new book at marywmccampbell.com.

The Real Estate News Brief - Week Ending April 30, 2022; Growing Demand for ARMs, The 7-Year Foreclosure, Top Complaints about NeighborsIn this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending April 30th, 2022... you'll hear about the surging demand for adjustable-rate mortgages, the years it takes to foreclose in some states, and the top reasons people dislike their neighbors.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. Before we start, I want to let you know that we are hosting our first live event in over 2 1/2 years on May 21st in St Petersburg Florida. I'll be there giving my 2022 Housing Update, and we'll also have property teams from 10 different markets to update us on what's going on in their markets and share available income properties. We'll also have a tour of rental properties in St Pete on Sunday and then Jacksonville on Monday. Check it out at newsforinvestors.com Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week, and more concerns about inflation. The Federal Reserve's preferred inflation index rose again in March to an annual rate of 6.6%. That's up from an annual rate of 6.4% in February. But there are signs that inflation may be hitting a peak because the core rate of inflation went down for the first time in a year. The core rate excludes food and energy and decreased from 5.3% to 5.2% in March. The Fed believes the PCE is more accurate than the consumer price index or CPI because it's more comprehensive. (1)Despite all the worries about inflation, the job market is going strong. Initial claims were down 5,000 to just 180,000 last week. Continuing claims were also down to their lowest level since 1970, at approximately 1.41 million. (2)Rising mortgage rates are putting a damper on new home sales. The Census Bureau says that sales dropped 8.6% in March to an annual rate of 763,000. High prices are also discouraging buyers. The median price for a new home was $436,700 in March. That's about $77,000 more than it was in March of last year. (3)Pending home sales for existing homes were also down in March. The National Association of Realtors says they dipped 1.2%. It is predicting that sales will be down a total of 9% for the year. NAR's chief economist Lawrence Yun expects multiple offers to disappear, and calmer, more normal conditions to replace the homebuying frenzy we've been witnessing. (4)Because demand remains high for housing, home prices continue to rise. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city index was up 2.4% in February. That brought the annual rate up to 20.2%. At a national level, annual home price growth rose to 19.8%. The Federal Housing Finance Agency reported similar results. It shows that home prices rose 19.4% year-over-year in February which was a 2.1% increase from January. (5)There are mixed reports on consumer sentiment. A survey on consumer confidence shows it dipped slightly in April because of inflation. But it also shows that consumers are still spending money on big-ticket items, despite the high prices. (6) Meantime, the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment index jumped higher by several points. Consumers are reportedly happy that gas prices have gone back down a bit, and are feeling more optimistic about the future. (7)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates didn't move much, but the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage remains above the 5% level. Freddie Mac says it was down just one basis point to 5.1%. The 15-year was up 2 points to 4.4%. (8)In other news making headlines…ARMs In High Demand as Fixed Rates RiseMore home buyers are choosing adjustable-rate loans to keep mortgage payments lower at the beginning of their loan term. The Mortgage Bankers Association says demand for ARMs has “doubled” compared to three months agoThe interest rate for an ARM was 3.78% last week, according to Freddie Mac. The Mortgage Bankers Association says the average rate for a 5-year ARM was 4.28%. Both are lower than the 30-year fixed rate, and that's driving up demand. (9)The Lengthy Process of ForeclosureBuying a foreclosure might get you a great price on a home, but in some places, the length of time it takes to foreclose could eclipse any monetary value. ATTOM Data Solutions published a report on the states with the longest average times to foreclose, and the winner was Hawaii, at 2,578 days. That's a little longer than 7 years. Louisiana, is second on the list with an average of about 2,000 days or 5.5 years. Other states on the top ten list include Kentucky, Nevada, Connecticut, New York, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New Mexico. New Mexico was last on the list but foreclosures there still take more than 3.5 years. (10)At the other end of the spectrum are states with the fastest foreclosure process. Montana came out at the top of that list, at 133 days. Mississippi was second at 146 days, and West Virginia was third at 197 days.What's Up with the Neighbors?The last story I'd like to share with you is a report on the top reasons Americans don't like their neighbors. According to a Lending Tree survey, 28% of the participants said their neighbors “give off a weird vibe.” Other reasons include noise levels, rudeness, disruptive pets, being nosy, and unruly kids. Some people also said they don't like it when their neighbors have guests that park in front of their house, or their parking space. Smoking was listed by 11% of the people. 4% said they had issues with their neighbors' political views, and 3% said they were not happy that their neighbors were using their homes as short-term rentals. (11)It's interesting that so few people listed short-term rentals as a problem, given all the controversy about how much disruption they cause, or don't cause. Of course, it's often the case that people who are disgruntled about an issue will speak out more loudly than the ones who don't mind.That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

Today's guests are doing innovative agriculture work that is deeply rooted in history in their small town of San Elizario, Texas. David Cantu and Maya Sanchez are two local government leaders who have helped spearhead projects to encourage San Elizario residents to grow food for themselves and food to sell—all tailored to their unique desert environment. They're tapping into historical knowledge of what plants grow best in these conditions and hoping other desert-dwellers can learn from this, too. These efforts are particularly meaningful in a border town where almost half of the population lives below the poverty line. These are opportunities to grow food in backyards and gardens to feed one's family, and this program has also helped residents grow produce to sell to local restaurants and stores, or turn into other food businesses, themselves. David Cantu is an alderperson and Maya Sanchez in the City Administrator for San Elizario. Both are very active in their city, in this agricultural initiative, and in their own gardens, too. We interviewed Cantu and Sanchez for an article back in 2020, and, as you'll hear in this interview, since that time they've helped more of the community be involved in growing food, connected these efforts with flood mitigation goals, and even had the chance to sell locally grown produce to neighboring cities.

From Aijha Blackwell of Missouri to Dre Edwards of Kentucky to Jana Van Gytenbeek of Stanford, Nicki Collen is having a field day in the transfer portal for Baylor women's basketball. Losing NaLyssa Smith and Queen Egbo, Collen has had to replenish a roster that only had a handful of players to begin with. The team couldn't even scrimmage itself last season. Mike Neighbors, head coach at the University of Arkansas, joins to break down each player — all of which he has recruited or scouted. Neighbors hangs around to break down Collen's first year as a head coach at Baylor and how to gauge her overall success. After a season that included hosting the NCAA tournament and an appearance in the Big 12 championship game, has Collen shown that she is the right fit to replace the legendary Kim Mulkey? And the Baylor men's and women's tennis teams have punched their tickets to the postseason after their selection show was held this week. We hear from Michael Woodson of the No. 3 men's team and Joey Scrivano of the No. 26 women's team as they begin postseason play this weekend. The men host ACU while the women travel to College Station to meet Washington. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.
