Road Trip: A Tale of 4 Home HauntersWhile sitting at home is driving some of us crazy, it’s giving others the chance to create. In this year when so many haunts have gone dark, home haunts are seriously stepping up. On today’s special, join me in a road trip to 4 different home haunts. We’ll hear all about the obsession, the learning, and the passion behind these projects. Coming up, we’re stopping at Hull House in Buena Park, 1870 Haunt Manor in Anaheim, The Grey Phantom is Norwalk, and the Real Ghostbusters Display in Austin Texas. Buckle up and let’s hit the road! Credits: This episode was produced by Philip Hernandez with mixing and postproduction by David Swope. Music provided by Chris Thomas at Music for Haunts.

But where did this legend come from and how much truth is there to it? Also, are there other headless horsemen around the world? These questions and more will be answered in this episode.

Previously on Haunt Weekly, we asked you all for your favorite lighting tricks. Many of you, somewhat to our surprise, said Pepper's Ghost.However, through sheer good fortune, Mental Floss Magazine published an article about the history of the illusion and it turns out to be way more interesting than either of us could have imagined.Pepper's Ghost started life as an attempt to generate interest in science, became a carnival trick and today is actually crucial to a lot of the technology you use.All in all, this history is a LOT more complicated than you might think and well worth the hour to look into.This Week's Episode Includes:IntroAnnounce Last Week's WinnerQuestion for the AudienceWhat We've Been Working OnThe Early History of Pepper's GhostThe Henry Dirks EraEnter John Henry PepperThe DebutThe DeclineThe Modern LegacyConclusionsAll in all, this is one episode you definitely do NOT want to miss!
