Episode Info:

At least once in everybody’s life they’ve heard of it. Maybe you’ve even been afraid of it. The thing that lurks in the shadows, the monster in the closet or under the bed; of course I’m talking about the bogeyman. It seems that tales of child-snatching monsters is a tale as old as time, and for as long as humans can recall, we’ve had the bogeyman. The first instance of that particular name being recorded even dates back to the 1500’s. 

The bogeyman is a fascinating topic as it’s one of those stories and legends that spans centuries and cultures, though very few describe the same thing, which is something I’ve talked about in the past. It’s a curious thing, different cultures worlds away, over massive periods of time have tales for the same things. It’s incredibly interesting, and the bogeyman is no exception. 

Ultimately, the bogeyman is a classic example of exploring morals. Naughty children beware, for the evil that wanders the dark of night will snatch up up lest you behave. Of course the bogeyman isn’t the only creature that explores that theme, but could it possibly be the first? That’s the question isn’t it? Whether or not I find that answer is up in the air. You’ll just have to listen to the cast to find out!

Of course, if you like what you hear, please feel free to leave a review on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. And be sure to listen to the other podcasts on the Morbidly Beautiful network. We just introduced The Horror Spinsters and their podcast, I Spit On Your Podcast, and their first episode on the network just dropped. So go check it out after you listen to the Ominous Origins episode on The Bogeyman.
