12: The Pera Palace Hotel Agatha Christie Mystery

11/5/2019
More
Room 411 in the Pera Palace Hotel is christened the Agatha Christie room. It's thought that's the room the author stayed in while she wrote Murder on the Orient Express. In 1979 Warner Brothers released the movie Agatha. It was a fictional account of the 11 days Agatha Christie disappeared in 1926. Warner Brothers hired Hollywood medium Tamara Rand, who held a seance and claimed she made contact with the famous mystery writer. Contact that may hold the key to Christie’s disappearance. Well,...

11: Fathers, Family, and Growing up Haunted: A Chat with Alexandra Holzer

10/31/2019
More
Courtney had a great long talk with Alexandra Holzer, but she pulled a Whoopsie. (Court, that is. Not Alexandra.) She's still new to podcasting nuances and was using an app for the first time to record the call. She was so excited to talk to Alexandra that she forgot a crucial step: to merge the calls. Thus, most of the interview wasn't recorded. However, some was. She noticed her mistake about 45 minutes into the call. She still caught about 20 minutes of it though. Enough to convey the...

More
Max Baumle and Zak Heino are two of the five investigators starring in World's Biggest Ghost Hunt: Pennhurst Asylum (https://www.hauntjaunts.net/worlds-biggest-ghost-hunt-pennhurst-asylum-happens-october-30/) , which premieres on A&E October 30 at 8 pm ET/PT. What sets it apart from other ghost hunting shows we've seen thus far --and where the "biggest" comes from in its title-- is that it's the longest continually filmed paranormal investigation in TV history. Court had the chance to sit...

7: October Has the Weirdest Days

10/1/2019
More
Spooky types generally associate October with the scariest day of the year –Halloween. And a mainstream campaign that gets lots of attention each October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But there’s many monthly, weekly and daily celebrations happening in October. In fact, October is one of the “busiest” months we track. Magic, meditation, killer dolls, haunted refrigerators, Frankenstein…even Willy Wonka! So many odd things being celebrated, appreciated or to be aware of. As far as weird,...

6: How Will Ghost Adventures Investigate H.H. Holmes's Murder House When It Doesn't Exist?

9/30/2019
More
When I first learned Ghost Adventures had locked down a special Serial Killer series for Travel Channel's "Ghostober" programming (https://www.hauntjaunts.net/ghost-adventures-locks-down-travel-channels-ghostober-event-with-serial-killers-and-the-conjuring-house-and/) , one of the locations immediately piqued my interest: H. H. Holmes's Murder House. But didn't it burn down? How can they investigate something that doesn't exist? Because it does exist. It may not be "the" infamous murder...

3: The Drake's Mysterious Woman in Black

9/9/2019
More
I'd hoped the Drake Hotel in Chicago would have ghosts. Instead, I was haunted by the unsolved true crime murder of Adele Born Williams and her killer, the Woman in Black. The murder of Ms. Williams was sensational back in its day, but it eventually faded from memory. It remains unsolved to this day. However, it's not the Drake's only tie to a sensational true crime. It also has an intimate connection with the Leopold and Loeb case, which I also briefly talk about in this episode. Links to...

2: Proof of Ghosts or Wonky Tech?

8/31/2019
More
Have you ever experienced unusual technology issues? Were you able to figure out the cause, or did it give you pause and make you wonder if maybe something else –possibly something ghostly– was happening? Or was it just a matter of wonky tech? In this episode I share three specific examples that have happened to me: Automatic sensors working when no one visible was in front of them. Face recognition identifying a face that wasn't there. Home security cameras detecting motion when nothing was...

All the coolest monsters had castles, didn’t they? Dracula, Frankenstein…okay that’s all I can think of. (If you know of any I’m forgetting, feel free to remind me.)

In honor of that, let's take a jaunt to Castle Frankenstein in Germany. (There are other places that call themselves "Frankenstein's Castles, but make no mistake. There is...
