    Ep 278: Highgate Cemetery

    Blurry Photober is late this year, but David is back with an episode all about Highgate Cemetery! An incredible feat of gothic greatness, Highgate Cemetery has an interesting history and hauntings to boot. David had the fortune to take a tour of the Grade I historic location, and also interviewed the tour guide, John Waite. John and David go over the history of the cemetery, including its inception, how it fell to disrepair, and how it was revived. David then gets into the history of the hauntings which are said to happen. Mysterious top-hatted figures, forlorn spectres, and rumors of vampires have plagued the boneyard for decades. David discusses these stories as well as the infamous occultist feud between David Farrant and Sean Manchester. Take a history-heavy tour of a hauntingly beautiful location in this episode of Blurry Photos!

    Ep 277: Campfire Ghost Stories 11

    Flora is a little late with this year's campfire ghost stories, but it fits well with Blurry Photober! This year's campfire ghost stories selections have some pretty disturbing tales. Clowns, kids, and cackling crones are all on the menu. Tell 'em around the fire or just play this episode late at night when you're catching the remnants of summer out in the wilds.

More please

I just listened to the Highgate Cemetery episode. I was mesmerized. It was one of your best! I would love more deep dive episodes. Thank you for what you do. 🙂

An excellent podcast…

I just recently started listening to podcasts. This podcast was recommended on Dragons In Genesis Podcast so once I powered through that one I started on this 3 weeks ago. I am now up to Episode 217: Strange Encounters (I work 10 hour days….this podcast has been invaluable in keeping me focused). While I was sad to see Dave leave, David has been doing a fantastic job on his own, just had to listen to a couple with just him to get used to the newer format. I think I prefer the new format, still has humor but it has more of an informational approach that is leaning towards impassioned delivery (NOT dry lecture). Keep up the good work here!
