Episode 14


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.
