We are talking ghosts people. We talk about a previous celebrity ghost hunting experience, general thoughts on the spirit realm and finally offer an option challenge.... If you think you can break us put us in the scariest place you can imagine. We will spend a night in there to show you "We aint afraid of no ghosts..." We will even make a podcast to record our experience. Our aim is to either be made believers or banish the idea once and for all . You pay for travel and snacks.
