    Ep. 441 - Weems-Botts House

    The Weems-Botts House is located in Dumfries, Virginia. This town used to have a big reputation, rivaling towns like Philadephia and Boston, but today it's just a little knockabout place. The house is a museum that is considered one of the most haunted locations in the state. The Merchant Family were the last private owners of the house and they still seem to be here. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of the Weems-Botts House! Moment in Oddity features the Laos Plain of Jars and This Month in History features the Penny Postcard approved by Congress. Our location was suggested by Katelyn Curry.

    Ep. 440 - Haunted Puerto Rico

    Being located at the tip of one point of the Bermuda Triangle, it's not surprising that Puerto Rico has some strange legends, disappearances and hauntings. The island is today a United States territory, but for years it was under Spanish rule. This is a place with a vibrant culture mixing Afro-Caribbean, Spanish and American influences. On this episode we explore the history of the island and several of the haunted locations on Puerto Rico. The Moment in Oddity features talking mushrooms and This Month in History features James Smithson establishing the Smithsonian Institute. Our location was suggested by Kelly Crews.

She and her business partner - Miranda Young aka Ghost Biker - run tours, events and ghost hunts at the jail and Kristy shares the history and many of the unexplained things that have happened in the jail!

    Ep. 438 - Glore Psychiatric Museum

    Ep. 438 - Glore Psychiatric Museum

    The term asylum means refuge and that is what lunatic asylums were meant to be, places of safety for those experiencing various forms of mental illness. But as we have found, very few asylums did more than house the mentally ill and use them as guinea pigs for various forms of torture. That is why so many of them have spiritual residue. The Glore Psychiatric Museum in St. Joseph, Missouri is a location that documents both in words and visual recreations, what life in an asylum was like for many people. Objects from many former asylums have become part of the collection and possibly have brought along attachments. Join us as we discuss the history of the former asylum that was here, the history of asylum treatments and the hauntings involved! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Jannae McCabe and features the Wheel Bug and This Month in History features Edison patenting the Electrographic Vote Recorder.
