Rotary Jail

Rotary Jail

May 13, 2021

Indiana always seems to be full of little unknown gems and claims to fame; Crawfordsville Indiana is no different. The Rotary Jail now turned museum is a one of a kind experience and look into the country's first, and now only remaining spinning style jail. Prisons and jails seem to be an obvious place for souls to linger, especially ones that had gallows just outside their walls. A normal spirit would be perturbed at having been hanged at all, but how about someone that had to be hanged three times? The rotary jail has provided us with some of our most compelling evidence yet, and even some potential physical evidence. This was definitely an unexpectedly active location, and we're not complaining.

Twin Tangent 1

April 29, 2021

We realized there are 5 Thursdays this month, so we decided to do a little spin off for the occasion; a tangent if you will. Have you ever listened to one of our episodes and thought to yourself "Wow, I really like how they keep veering away from the original topic. These asides and anecdotes are really keeping me on the edge of a completely different seat"? Then you've wandered off to the right place. All of our distracted energy, compiled into one convenient location! The episodes will be themed, but the topics will be ever changing. This 5th Thursday topic is: Click Bait Crimes. So sit back, and try to keep up. We're probably as lost as you.

Avon Bridge

Avon Bridge

April 22, 2021

Avon Indiana is apparently home to one of the most exciting things you could possibly do in the state ... drive under a bridge. It is a historical landmark for the city, but a large part of its history is rooted in something a little more haunted. Railway workers, mothers and babies, unsuspecting kids out for a swim, this bridge almost has it all, that is, if they're actually out there.

Macke (Hatchet Man) Cemetery

Macke (Hatchet Man) Cemetery

April 15, 2021

It's been a while since we've been back to Illinois, but we made the trek, and we think it was worth it. Armed with our new equipment we set out to investigate the legend of the hatchet man and his brutal killings. What makes this place scarier than others is the fact that hatchet man is based off of a real life murderer who may still be alive today. Listen to see if we were brave enough to stick around and invoke the spirits left behind by the hatchet man.

We're taking it back home this week to Terre Haute, Indiana. As we've mentioned before, just a stones throw away from where we grew up is already a slew of haunted locations. This is actually a location we visited over a decade ago, so we made our way back to see if the haunted stories still stand. We were very excited to finally use our new equipment for this one! You'll just have to listen and find out if it worked in our favor.

We've got a number of stories on this one for you! Buckle up as we go back in time with some of our drink choices. That's right, choices plural; we may or may not finish 3 of 4 bottles of wine.. So listen to us drunkenly retell some of your stories, realize you aren't crazy for the inexplicable things that have happened to you, consider sending in some more of your own, and listen as we laugh, cry, and sometimes sing our way through you ghostly encounters.

The Slippery Noodle Inn

The Slippery Noodle Inn

March 24, 2021

Good food, good music, good atmosphere, and good ghosts? This building saw a lot of purposes and a lot of iterations, standing through WWI, prohibition, slavery, and more. And with a history like that, you know a place is bound to be haunted. Did we meet the ghost of a woman from the brothel, an inexplicable spirit named George, the Dillinger and Brady Gangs, or all of the above? Let's find out, shall we? 

Kitley-King Cemetery

Kitley-King Cemetery

New adventures, new locations, and (finally) new equipment! Not all haunted encounters need to happen in the dead of night, we know this due to residual hauntings, and this cemetery is a perfect example of that. Listen to us tell the story of John King and his harmonica, and find out if he played a little something for us.

Allison Mansion

Allison Mansion

March 11, 2021

Allison Mansion is one of Indiana's most notable haunted locations, despite the institutions efforts to avoid that kind of publicity. This one was a bit of a stretch to make happen, and like Kelsey mentions in the episode, "better to ask forgiveness than permission". Hopefully it will still be appreciated by them, and now enjoyed by you.
