Podcast dedicated to the side of history that goes bump in the night. Every episode's content features community time that includes listener mail and experiences, a “Moment In Oddity” and “History Of The Day” segments and then interviews and discussions about a historic location, event or person and the hauntings associated with the subject of the particular show. The tagline for the show is “Ghost tours for the theater of the mind” and our goal is to entertain you while creeping you out just a bit.
Boston is one of the oldest cities in America and full of history. One center of this history is the Boston Common, which is considered America's oldest park.

The Moment in Oddity features The Green Mist of Chino Hills and This Month in History features the signing of the German Instrument of Surrender.
The Ghost Town of Bannack
Bannack, Montana was a wild gold mining town with no sheriff, dotted with brothels and saloons. Bannack became a ghost town.
