    The Rise And Fall Of Fatty Arbuckle

    Fatty was the first Hollywood star to get “CANCELED,” as it’s called today, and his career destruction followed a crime that he not only didn’t commit but was found innocent of at trial. But by then, it was too late, and no one believed him anyway.

Hey Hump!

At first I thought Troy interrupting Cody was a accident… Nope, the ending is sometimes almost as good as the story and conversation.

History of spooky

I had the pleasure of having several conversations with Troy Taylor in the late 90’s in Alton, Ill. It’s been a happy find for me to be able to listen to his storytelling on broader topics through this podcast. Great background and deep dives on how, where, when and why spooky places get their haunts. Well done!
