We'll also look at the elements of music that lead to hauntings and curses. And wow, does music have some curses!

Please don’t ever do that again

I love your show!! But I actually skipped thru this episode on St Paul. A five minute lecture on rocks? No thank you, it never seemed to end and I almost turned it off. We’re all deadophytes (pretty much) so we have at least basic knowledge of ghost, quartz, hauntings. I’m sorry, y’all are just usually on point but that was boring...

Spooktacular!

Interesting material, well presented, high production values, engaging personalities - I just discovered this podcast, and I am now an enthusiastic fan. Up there with the best!

What can I say?

I really like this show. Part of it is the hosts, Diane is deeply opinionated and I feel like we would be either commisserating over the opinions we share or butting heads over the opinions we don't...and that little bit of feisty comes across in the podcast. Denise on the other is like everyone's mom and I like her on the show as well (I started at the beginning and am only a 100 episodes in, I know Denise leaves and that makes me sad). Still it's like hanging out with friends conversing over a meal. Occasionally, there are some sound issues but 99% of the time they get fixed. I also totally understand Dianne's love/hate with technology...I do the same thing. Good show, listen especially if you like history and the paranormal.
