    The Axeman of New Orleans pt 1

    The Axeman of New Orleans pt 1

    New Orleans war against vice – like the Great War in Europe – appeared to be nearly at an end. The city was poised to become a normal, orderly, Christian place that the reformers wanted it to be.

    Night Doctors, Needle Men, And Murder

    Night Doctors, Needle Men, And Murder

    Vampires, ghosts, monsters, and an assortment of murderers. All of them have roamed the streets of New Orleans at one time or another and have become part of the city’s spookiest lore. Some of these boogeymen – from the Needle Men to the Gown Man to Hugging Molly – have sometimes even caused more fear than the killers have. And that’s largely because they conjured up some very bad memories of the past, especially when it came to the Night Doctors.

My favorite podcast

This is the podcast I’ve been looking for! I am a St. Louis local and I am loving the Alton and St. Louis coverage. Can’t wait to burn through all of the episodes! Thank you, and I love the audio quality and the background music.

Finally...Some truth to the legends

Just letting you know I’ve listened since the beginning. I love the focus on one city at a time and truly appreciate the true, straight facts. And please, please, please more audiobooks! I don’t have the time or patience to read a book anymore.
