Ghoul on Ghoul


Jun 6, 2018

This week, Amanda and Sarah take on cemeteries in the first of many Cemetery Specials! Sarah dives into the rich and storied history of the Old Burying Grounds in her hometown of Beaufort, NC and dispenses a few spooky tales from her day as a (ghost) tour guide there. Amanda explains the origins of some weird graves in the Wildwood Cemetery in her hometown of Williamsport, PA and in Pittsburgh's Allegheny Cemetery. Other subjects covered include the possum: America's marsupial, eating bugs, cafeteria ice cream, and timeless commercials.
