The Ghosts of Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, California

Just off the coast of San Francisco is a place with a tumultuous history known as the Rock–not to be mistaken for Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, the actor we all know and love. Alcatraz Island is home to the former federal Alcatraz Prison, where thousands of the worst criminals the nation had to offer were housed. But the prison's been closed for years, and what remains on the Rock today are its historical buildings and the ghosts of resident’s past. So pack your bags and grab your masks, today...

Carroll Deering: A Ghost Ship Mystery

8/20/2021
Just off the coast of North Carolina, along the outer banks is an area of treacherous waters where the cold Labrador current meets the warm waters of the gulf stream. Strong offshore winds help create a spot for low and high pressure weather systems to collide. Since the 1500s, sailors have been wary of the area, and these waters have earned the nickname graveyard of the Atlantic due to the high number of shipwrecks and countless human lives lost in the region. It was in these very waters...

Bobby Mackey's Bar, Wilder, Kentucky.

8/13/2021
Today we're going to have a look at a listeners request, the so called 'Bobby Mackey Nightclub and Honkytonk, you might be asking if we just made those two words up but no, in Kentucky they get to say just about anything they want. So yes, a 'honkytonk' is a real thing, that basically just means a bar where self-proclaimed hilly billy music is played, sometimes with piano accompaniment. The piano itself is also sometimes called a honkytonk. But enough of that, as usual, we're not here to...

Ghosts at The Moon River Brewing Company, Savannah, Georgia

8/6/2021
Today we’ve got, as Willie Nelson sang, “Georgia on our mind!” If you are too young to remember that song, you should look it up—it's a classic. Specifically, we are going to take a look at the old City Hotel building in Savannah Georgia that is now home to the Moon River Brewing Company.

It is said that in 1776, at the Battle of the White Plains during the American Revolutionary War, a Hessian soldier on horseback, fighting for the British, had his head blown clear off by a cannonball.

The Ghost Town of Old Cahawba, Alabama

7/9/2021
Today we are talking more about a ghost town with more of a spooky history than a town famous for its ghosts. The remnants of Cahawba (pronounced ca-ha-ba), now an archaeological park, are located in the deep south of Alabama, and like its catchphrase says, it is a ghost town “cloaked in mystery.” In the 19th century, Cahawba was part of one of the richest counties in the entire United States but today its only inhabitants are the unmarked graves of hundreds of those that were enslaved....

What is Lurking in the Seattle Underground?

Ghosts of the San Fernando Cathedral

We are packing our bags and heading into the time machine so we can zip ourselves back to the 18th century. We’re headed to present-day Texas which was then Papaya territory—we don’t mean the tropical fruit that smells like vomit, but rather a tribe of indigenous hunter gathers. The Papayans lived around what is now called the San Antonio River, and in 1731, a group of people all the way from the Canary island with a promise from the King of Spain that they could build a church there. Today...
