Episode 29 – Tales from the Reliquary: A Very Relic Halloween



Good evening boys and ghouls and non-binary demonic entities!

In this extra long, extra spooky episode of Relic, just in time for Halloween, I have invited 5 podcasts over for a feast of archaeological and historical frights!

Spoop Hour talks about a haunted pirate treasure off the coast of Connecticut, Cocktail Party Massacre spins a surreal yarn about Salvador Dali and tarot cards, Faux Fright has a cursed doll story, Cult of Domesticity regales us with the creepy mystery of the ghost ship Mary Celeste, and Strangeful Things takes us back to the beginning of time when vampires (allegedly) roamed the frozen tundra of Sweden!

Episode 12 – Curse of the Inca



Since the Spanish age of conquest, the inhabitants near the Llanganates region of Ecuador have feared the stories surrounding a massive cache of priceless artifacts hidden somewhere in the mountains. The treasure of the last Incan King carries an especially deadly curse, and those who go looking for it end up vanishing into the jungle or dying…in eerily similar circumstances.

Music by Derek and Brandon Fiechter. Seriously, check their channels out.

And if the true events included in this episode’s final sequence intrigue you, I highly recommend the Thinking Sideways Podcast’s episode that covers this mystery in greater detail.


Episode 6 – Beyond Balram’s Door



India’s Padmanabhaswamy Temple is the wealthiest religious institution in the world, with chambers of riches worth trillions. The temple is also known for its secrecy, most of which surrounds the sealed vault in the inner sanctum. The means of opening the vault are lost, and any attempts to force entry are prophesied to bring cataclysm on a global scale. What’s beyond the forbidden door?

Music by Kevin Macleod and Derek Fiecther, with recordings of traditional Hindu mantras.
