Description

When Sarah Winchester's husband died, she inherited millions from the family business: the manufacture of the famous Winchester Rifle. A medium reportedly told Sarah that she would be haunted by the victims of that rifle unless she used her fortune to build a house, and never stop building. That's exactly what she did.

Boring telling of the tale. I've heard this story at least 3 times on other podcasts and this was the most boring. Unsubscribing, because honestly this podcast is boring while trying to be ironic and interesting.
