My special guest is author Marc Hartzman who's here to discuss our never-ending fascination to explore paranormal phenomena in America. Get his book Chasing Ghosts: A Tour of Our Fascination with Spirits and the Supernatural right now on Amazon.
Take a spirited tour through the supernatural history of America, from its haunted sites to its famous ghosts to its ghost-obsessed pop culture.
Ghosts are everywhere - whether you believe in them or not. Every town has its local legends, and countless books, movies, and television shows are haunted by their presence. But our obsession with ghosts runs deeper than we know - and is embedded in the very fabric of American history.
Writer and historian Marc Hartzman dons the mantle of tour guide, taking listeners on a fascinating journey through supernatural history, including:
- The Fox sisters and the rise of spiritualism,
- The supernatural obsessions of famous figures like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,
- Famous haunted sites like the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia and the LaLaurie House in New Orleans,
- Famous ghosts like the Bell Witch of Tennessee and the Greenbrier Ghost of West Virginia, and
- Paranormal investigators like Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Deeply researched and highly entertaining, Chasing Ghosts will satisfy believers and skeptics alike.
