Amanda and Sarah welcome John Schalcosky, founder of The Odd, Mysterious & Fascinating History Of Pittsburgh (AKA Odd Pittsburgh), an in-depth, continuing exploration of the city's unusual, mysterious, and forgotten history. John brings a wealth of strange stories about Pittsburgh, including a girl stricken by a demon, the bizarre namesake of the Allegheny River, and the possibly Satanic origins of Mt. Pleasant, as well as a few personal brushes with the paranormal. Other subjects covered include a surprising imaginary friend, a hilarious bat incident, and more Houdini shenanigans.
John recommends reading Ideas And Opinions by Albert Einstein and anything by Carl Sagan.
