270. Bitches Assemble: Ghost Tours, Ghost Stories, and Creepy Recommendations

Amanda, Carrie, Elyse, RedHeadedGirl and I talk about ghost tours, starting with the 1.5 ghost tours she went on in York recently. We discuss what makes a good ghost tour guide, and which stories were the best (and creepiest). Amanda shares her recommendation for ghostly, creepy television shows (don’t worry, of course we have links!). She also talks about a ghost tour she took in school (!) in fourth grade (!!) as part of her Florida state history curriculum (!!!). Elyse explains why creepy stuff has to work really hard to impress her, and Carrie talks about all the ghostly stories in northern California that she knows – and the lessons we can learn from them. Bonus: Elyse takes us on a tour of the creepy things on her Kindle.

TW for discussion of murder and violence intermittently when talking about who haunts what, where, and why they might be doing that.

And there’s a special background appearance of a meeping Wilbur cat, who wanted to lend atmosphere to the show.

Twice as Wicked

Today’s podcast transcript is sponsored by Twice as Wicked by Elizabeth Bright.

All’s fair in love and revenge…or is it?

Alice Bursnell is determined to wreak revenge on Nathaniel Eastwood, Viscount Abingdon, for the seduction, ruin, and death of her beloved twin sister. But how to expose a seducer without falling prey herself?

As she gets closer to Nathaniel, she finds she is in serious danger of following in her sister’s much-too-tempted footsteps. The man is nothing like the heartless rake she expected…and his kisses are truly divine. Could she be wrong about him?

When a mysterious and gorgeous woman confronts Nathaniel at a fancy ball, he suspects she has murder on her mind—his own. But the more he tries to determine who the deceptively innocent beauty is—and what she’s up to—the deeper he falls under her alluring spell. Nathaniel fears he’s in imminent danger of losing his life…or worse, his heart.

Elizabeth Bright’s debut is a witty, heartwarming romance that readers won’t soon forget. For more info, please visit Entangled Publishing.
