    Horror In Good Hart

    Horror In Good Hart

    The smell was overwhelming on that July day in 1968 as Monnie Bliss approached the cabin that his father Chauncey had built years earlier near the community of Good Hart, on the Lower Peninsula of Michigan’s Northwest Coast. And the murders that ended up being discovered in the strange cabin in the woods would be a mystery that has yet to solved.

    Taken From Home (The "Lipstick Killer" And The Murder Of Suzanne Degnan)

    Taken From Home (The "Lipstick Killer" And The Murder Of Suzanne Degnan)

    January in Chicago was always brutal. The winter of 1946 was no different. Three murders with one kidnapping in the same area. Were they all the work of one killer? Or was an "innocent" man put away for life while a more brutal killer was still on the loose, living amongst us...?

    Last Stand Of The Barker Gang

    Last Stand Of The Barker Gang

    There’s a house just outside the town of Ocklawaha, Florida, that stands as one of the most infamous locations in America’s gangland history. It was at this house where the last stand of the Barker gang took place and where Ma Barker and her son, Fred, battled it out with G-men before being shot to death. The violent and blood-soaked battle occurred many decades ago but there are many who believe it’s not quite over for the spirits that still linger behind these walls.

    The Easter Sunday Massacre

    The Easter Sunday Massacre

    There was nothing unusual about that Easter Sunday in 1975.
    “How’s your Volkswagen, Jimmie?” Leonard asked him.
    James didn’t speak. He answered the question by shooting his brother, setting off a spiral of violence and rage that ended as the deadliest shooting spree to ever occur in a private home in America’s bloody history.
    One that left a grim and troubling haunting behind.

    Memories Of The Old Slave House

    Memories Of The Old Slave House

    On a windy hill near the small Southern Illinois town of Equality is a decaying mansion that was known for decades as the region’s most haunted house. It was a place dubbed Hickory Hill by its builder and over the years, it’s been many things – a plantation house, farmhouse, a tourist attraction, and many believe, a chamber of horrors for men and women brought to this house in chains. Thanks to the long-standing legend of the terrible things that occurred in the house, locals eventually began referring to it as “The Old Slave House.”

So fun!

I recently took a quick birthday trip to New Orleans to visit St Louis Cemetary when I came back I was still itching to know more about New Orleans I found this podcast that did an entire season on it! So incredibly knowledgeable and fact checking. Not to mention the countless other seasons they have about spooky haunted places. It’s a solid 10 for me. Solid 10.

Meh

So disappointed in this show. The actual talk about the various places is around 20-25 minutes on average. The rest of these is just two guys talking about other things spooky related. I was really looking forward to the stories from New Orleans because I love the city, and know it’s history. What a letdown.

Oddly inspiring

I found this podcast several years ago when Troy was on Astonish Legends.

Not long after I started listening to the Villisca season. Then went back to the St. Louis season. As at the time I was living in St. Louis and knew nothing of the local paranormal history. Been hooked ever since.

This podcast is great. A perfect blend of historical facts and spooky paranormal. Something I appreciate as both a history nerd and paranormal nerd. The hosts have great chemistry. I try and get everyone to listen to this show and have been pretty successful! Getting my spouse, best friend, and several co-workers to listen regularly.

The show has even inspired a cross stitch design that I created! It’s one of my favorites that I have designed or stitched, based of the “Morbid Curious”.

Can’t say enough good things about the show, and please keep up the good work!
