35 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.

Obsessed!!

I discovered this podcast last weekend. We had just moved into our first house and I had sooooo much unpacking to do. So I turned to podcasts, as I often do when faced with seemingly impossible, tedious chores. The name of the show immediately attracted me and I assumed it would be a show about supernatural/paranormal experiences. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be REAL stories from actual people about their families and mysteries.
I cried when I listened to the episode about the grandmother who survived the Holocaust. I laughed along with the eccentric uncles in Marco's search for his grandfather. I was awed by the woman who went after her attacker with a bat! In short, this podcast is so excellently put together and produced that I get swept up into the stories and feel so many emotions.

I love it and am so grateful for the work you guys are doing. Now I definitely know that as crazy as my family is, it could be so much weirder. 💖
