In this spooky seasonal episode, our host Steve Cully brings in Jamie Parillo and Charlie Kuenzel from the Saratoga History Museum... To talk about GHOSTS! Ghouls, Wights, Phantoms, Specters; by any name, the remnant energy of the dead given form here on Earth... Get ready for a spine-tingling episode, as they'll talk about several confirmed encounters and readings, the potential history behind the haunting themselves... And our ghastly subjects just may chime in themselves with a few words.
By the way, listeners... The interference and noise in this episode was not added in editing.
