Podcast dedicated to the side of history that goes bump in the night. Every episode's content features community time that includes listener mail and experiences, a “Moment In Oddity” and “History Of The Day” segments and then interviews and discussions about a historic location, event or person and the hauntings associated with the subject of the particular show. The tagline for the show is “Ghost tours for the theater of the mind” and our goal is to entertain you while creeping you out just a bit.

Best spooky podcast.
Love this show. A great combination of history and the paranormal.
Diane and Denise are great presenters and feel like friends. I love their energy and enthusiasm.
A must listen!
I was referred to this podcast by the Legends, Myths and Whisky podcast, and found its combination of history and spooky sightings to be captivating! Diane and Denise put such love and care in to this show, and this is blatantly obvious through their interaction with listeners, and all of the research and effort they exert in bringing us quality content. I love listening to this podcast to wind down after a long day, I love being a part of the spooktacular crew, and I have recommended the show to practically everyone I know. Thanks for putting on something great ladies, HGB and the two of you have gained a special place in my heart! P.s, don't pay any mind to those who criticise you guys - haters gonna hate! Love from Alanah in New Zealand :)
