Every house is haunted. In each episode of Family Ghosts, we investigate the true story behind a mysterious figure whose legend has followed a family for generations. Grandmothers who were secretly jewel smugglers, uncles who led double lives, siblings who vanished without a trace, and other ghostly characters who cast shadows over our lives in ways that might not be immediately obvious. We are all formed in part by our familial collections of secrets, intrigues, and myths. By engaging with each others’ legends, perhaps we can see each others’ realities more clearly.

Hosted by Moth Grand Slam winner Sam Dingman, whose stories have been featured on Risk!, TBTL, Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything, and The Moth Radio Hour.

Fantastic

Really enjoyed the whole series, every single story is fascinating. Makes you think about your own family stories and how much they affect your growing up. Thank you for making this.

Great podcast, very well done

But...i CAN'T HELP commenting on Sues clues, I can't believe the family (and subsequently, the podcasters) didn't think to contact the funeral home, or the husband. The blindingly most obvious place to ask, instead of just feeling annoyed for 20 years! Unbelievable!
