25 episodes

Every house is haunted. In each episode of Family Ghosts, we investigate the true story behind a mysterious figure whose legend has followed a family for generations. Grandmothers who were secretly jewel smugglers, uncles who led double lives, siblings who vanished without a trace, and other ghostly characters who cast shadows over our lives in ways that might not be immediately obvious. We are all formed in part by our familial collections of secrets, intrigues, and myths. By engaging with each others’ legends, perhaps we can see each others’ realities more clearly.

Hosted by Moth Grand Slam winner Sam Dingman, whose stories have been featured on Risk!, TBTL, Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything, and The Moth Radio Hour.

Binge-worthy

Just started listening to season 2 today and wow am I impressed. Several episodes later and this has quickly become one of my new favorites—very along the lines of Heavyweight, another gem of a podcast focusing on viewer stories. The hosts and the subjects are thoroughly entertaining/fascinating and everything is put together so nicely. I look forward to more bingeing of season 1 and new episodes!
