EP 032: Circle With a Head
Happy Thanksgiving Week, friends! We're so thankful for you. And so thankful that this week's story list doesn't involve our homes at all. Because we're bringing it this week.We're traveling overseas and visiting one of the oldest standing buildings in England. You guessed it. We're going to the Ancient Ram Inn. And it isn't just old but brimming with darkness. And so many questions surround the innkeeper. Why was the darkness surrounding him so much? We want answers!Once we're done with that lovely trip, it's back to the US. California, to be exact. There lies Preston Castle, a beautiful estate with a not so beautiful history. Abuse and surgeries on the floor. Manhunts and beatings. And a young girl in a bell tower that won't mind scaring the ever living daylights out of you.Join the Group : Facebook.com/groups/girlsandghoulsMerch: girlsandghouls.comEmail us: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

EP 030: White Mist Thing
After a week off, we're back with another episode that is a little milder than usual. Scary but at least you'll get a teeny bit of a breather.This week, we're heading to Georgia with Kirsten and she's sharing everything she knows about the famously haunted Fox Theater. This breathtaking theater isn't just home to the stars but to some love sick ghosts as well. And Kirsten would know since she was there.Erin's story has no location. Because she's covering the story of the Dibbuk Box. And this is no ordinary wine box. Trapped inside is something so dangerous, even the most fool hardy of individuals isn't willing to open it.Did I say this episode was mild? I may have lied.Have a story? Share it!

EP 019: Drugs Are Bad, Mkay?
Here we go, one more time. Everybody's feeling fine, here we go now!No, that has nothing to do with this week's episode. Literally at all. But it's stuck in my head as I type it and I thought I'd share.This week, we're chatting it up with some light-hearted celeb talk to get ready for a spooky and sensational episode about things that left me with my jaw dropped.We'll start this show off with a trip to Louisiana. Nope, we're not doing anything gross. Not gory gross. But instead, we're headed to the Myrtles Plantation, one of the most haunted locations in America. This plantation has been converted from home of a member of the whiskey rebellion to a bed and breakfast for those seeking a romantic weekend getaway.Or, ya know, a ghost in the mirror.Once we're done in the Myrtles, we're headed across the Atlantic to talk about Emily Sagee. And while she was a fabulous teacher, she wasn't known for her abilities as an educator. Don't get me wrong, Emily was a great teacher. But the twin she never saw that always trailed behind her was more interesting.Maybe not to the parents or other teachers but the students definitely seemed fascinated.And Emily isn't the only one that's experienced this apparition type being. Others have and have soon after met their demise.Be sure to join us in the Facebook Group : facebook.com/groups/girlsandghoulsEmail your story: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Can you believe it? Season One of Girls & Ghouls is wrapping up. We're stopping at 20 so episode 18 is feeling bittersweet.But we're not slowing down this time! This week, we're going on a journey to visit a ghost in Texas. Austin, in fact. We're donning our fanciest dress and stepping into one of the ritziest hotels known to man. The Driskill Hotel. This multi-million dollar hotel has brought celebrities and tourists alike but the fact that is was built during a time of cowboys and wild west means just one thing. You're absolutely going to find some happy haunters in your hotel room. And one of them might just be a bit of a ladies man, hoping to get some action while a pretty lady is in the shower.Once we're done with that whole gig, we're headed back to Pennsylvania. Because, ya know, Erin was in the mood for a stay-cation. We're going to the Poconos, friends, where we're going to visit a candle shop. One named... The Candle Shoppe. Apt!This old brownstone establishment won't just spook you in appearance. Oh no. The house belonged to a scientist that performed experiments to create the yellow fever and small pox vaccines.And his test subjects?

Ep 017: Human Mummy Thingie
We're in vacation mode. Obviously. Because the stories we keep moving towards are 100% surrounding your travel destinations.What? Didn't you know that you could get travel advice from a paranormal podcast?

Oh, and a creature that wants to eat you. Like, literally eat you. Hear the terrifying tale of an island that's tormented by an ancient spirit that isn't going for a jump scare but will attack you to the point that police don't even know how to handle the brutality.We're going to calm things down with Erin. In fact, we're heading to Oklahoma to a lovely little bed and breakfast called the Stone Lion Inn. It's a lovely little inn where you can rest, relax and get murdered.Oh, didn't I tell you?

Ep 016: Warm Seats
Are you ready to have some fun? We're digging into two stories that you are going to be so intrigued by. We're talking less terrifying and more interesting this week.And disclaimer. There's no grossness this time around.You're welcome!This week, Erin's taking on Hollywood. Ever watched the movie, The Conjuring? Did you know it was based on a true story? But as per usual, the Hollywood version is even less scary than the reality of this haunted tale. Because while the movie DID accurately portray one poltergeist in this Rhode Island farmhouse, it totally forgot about all the other entities. Oh. And the fact that the house also serves as a portal of sorts. Want to spend a weekend there?We're taking it back to a forgotten time with Kirsten. Join us as she shares the story of Lake Shawnee Amusement Park in beautiful West Virginia. What, you haven't heard of it? No surprise since this park has been closed for years.Well, to the living, at least. Ghosts are still riding the rides and running through the decrepit park remains. But that's not all you'll hear upon your arrival. Because before this area became an amusement park, it was home to Native Americans. And blood was shed.Be sure to join us in the Facebook Group : facebook.com/groups/girlsandghoulsEmail your story: firstname.lastname@example.org See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep 15: Tennisballs & Tubesocks
It's almost time for summer vacation around Girls & Ghouls headquarters. Which means it's time for a ghostly vacation for your mind in this week's episode. That's right, we're headed around the world in an hour.We'll start in California aboard the incredible boat, the Queen Mary. Kirsten shares about this top class vacation ship turned battle ship and friends... the history is unbelievable. You'll almost forget that while this ship was bathed in luxury and is as popular as ever today... it's also occupying some guests that have never left. Including one that simply growls in your ear as you walk by. Don't worry, though! You can also find women waiting for the pools and dancing in the salon.The problem isn't the people. It's knowing which of them are alive. And which are dead.Once we're done on the Queen Mary, we're headed to Italy. Don't get too cozy, though, because we're skipping the vineyards. We're skipping the gondolas. We're not even stopping in Venice. Instead, we're headed to Poveglia Island. This island was the home and death place of more than 100,000 people. But not over the span of centuries. Oh no. This was a Plague Quarantine. And then eventually a mental hospital. Want to know what you get when you combine the Black Plague and a mental hospital with a sadistic doctor? Lots and lots of ghosts.And not one of them wants to meet you.SO grab your drink, cozy up in a well-lit place. And be sure to listen through this entire trip.

Ep 014: Disco Debbie
Get ready to feel all the feels in this weeks episode. We're digging into some crazy stories on opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. And FYI, this episode is NOT for the faint of heart or children. Just saying.We're journeying back to New Orleans for a terrifying encounter with another home in the French District. And to make it even worse, it's a home that American Horror Story's Coven Season is based on. We're headed to the LaLaurie Mansion that was inhabited by one of the most notorious female serial killers, Delphine LaLaurie. This home was one that was full of death, despair, and tragedy, caused by an inhumane and evil woman. After the building was destroyed and subsequently repaired, there were some spirits unsettled that are quite accustomed to making themselves known. Even if it means calling your cell phone.Don't worry. We're bouncing right back from that tale of despair by heading to none other than the happiest place on Earth. That's right! We're going to Disneyland, folks! Kirsten is changing things up this week and instead of telling a tale of terror, we're chatting about some of Disney's most famous hauntings. While some of these hauntings came from tragic accidents, the ghosts that are currently residing in the park are anything but scary. Who knows... if you've already visited, you may have already ridden next to Mr. One Way.So fasten your seatbelt, get ready for emotional whiplash and tune into the latast episode of Girls & Ghouls. It's going to make you squeal with terror and maybe with delight.Email us your stories : firstname.lastname@example.orgJoin the group: facebook.com/groups/girlsandghouls See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep 013: My Hairy Toes
There aren't many things scarier than a ghost. Except maybe a ghost that's out to get what was rightfully his and taken from him.This week's podcast is nothing but terror from both Kirsten and Erin. But as I write this, I'm realizing... Kirsten's story is nothing short of absolutely gruesome.Journey to the often spooky New Orleans with Kirsten to the mansion that has been dubbed the Sultans Palace. This incredible piece of architecture was the star of the street in its day but when it was occupied by a Turkish Sultan, things went downhill. Quickly. This story ends with a house full of blood, a hand in the yard and a city too terrified to even utter the occurrences that happened in this dwelling. And let's be clear. The Sultan isn't very happy either. And he's not shy about letting everyone know... Once we're done in Lousiana, we're coming back north for a trip to Baltimore, Maryland. In fact, we're going to be chatting about the hotel that Erin tried desperately to get Kirsten to visit when they last had a work-cation.But Kirsten wasn't down with the Lord Baltimore Hotel and it's not hard to see why. This mammoth of a building has changed hands more times than we can count and while the multiple suicides aren't named the cause, we have to wonder.Or is it the little girl that refuses to leave the staff alone. With her bright red ball while she screams in the corner. Or maybe the reason no one wants to check into the 19th floor has something to do with guest waking with unexpected company.Visitors from beyond.Tune in to hear tales that will make your skin crawl and your heart beat a little faster.Join the Group: facebook.com/groups/girlsandghoulsSend Your Stories: email@example.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
