Episode 27: Nightmare Junction II: The Sad Case of Dr. Horace Wells


In the second Halloween special for Nutmeg Junction (Nightmare Junction) the corpse conductor introduces us to the strange case of Dr. Horace Wells, which is based on a true story of a Dentist in Connecticut and may have been the inspiration for the story “Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde”.


The second tale is a fun story of a poetry reading gone wrong! This one we plan to do LIVE for an audience very soon!

And as a bonus, there’s a wonderful original song by Lana Peck called “Sweet Severed Head” which works perfectly for the Halloween special!

The tale of Dr. Horace Wells was offered first by Conrad Sienkiewicz and followed up by Lana Peck, both of whom shared insight into the piece.

The role of Dr. Wells was portrayed by award winning Atlanta actor Danny Cook, our first “remote actor” for the show (as we record in Connecticut).


Thoughts before Breakfast was specifically created for a live event which will occur in the near future!
