We'll also look at the elements of music that lead to hauntings and curses. And wow, does music have some curses!

Early episodes with Denise are good

For the Spooktacular History Buff!

“History Goes Bump” is absolutely one of the best podcasts to listen to. These well researched shows have been a godsend on my long drives for work. It’s the perfect podcast for someone interested in history and looking for a little bit of a plot twist during the day. And guess what? There are PLENTY OF THEM!
Many of the locations featured in the show are places that my family and I have been to, so hearing more of the history behind them as well as new facts and legends that I have yet to be told make me want to revisit all over again!

But is “History Goes Bump” the podcast for you?
That, is for you to decide. 👻
