History Goes Bump is two today! Oh my, we are entering our third year of production and it’s going to be the terrible twos! On this, our second anniversary special, we recap the last couple of years, talk about our growth, thank a ghost ship full of people – particularly our listeners – and reveal the winners of our 2016 Flash Fiction Contest! We read several runner-up pieces and our three winners in this episode. We also announce something that will make everybody VERY happy! So grab your blankie, a warm drink and join us as we celebrate and look forward to an even better future and launch into October as we slide into Halloween!
On this year’s Christmas Special, we are joined by special guest Dan Foytik of the 9th Story Podcast, The Wicked Library and The Lift. We discuss some of the history behind Christmas and most importantly, analyze the history of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve. Most of our Christmas traditions are rooted in Victorian England. Sending Christmas cards and caroling door to door are just a couple of those traditions, but one tradition fell by the wayside and that is the practice of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve. We are keeping that alive on the History Goes Bump Podcast and The 9th Story Podcast. We told ghost stories last year and we are doing it again this year. Mark Nixon of http://shadowsatthedoor.com joins us to tell one of his own original stories as well!
This is the History Goes Bump Podcast’s second annual Halloween Special. We bring you the history of bobbing for apples, cauldrons and black cats. Plus, your haunted true experiences. This is truly a show for the listeners by the listeners. Even the research was conducted by Carbon Lilies, Sharon Spungeon and April Rogers-Krick. We just read stuff, recorded and edited. So gather round the fire in your favorite Halloween costume and with your favorite beverage and let’s get spooky together! Happy Halloween everybody!
We are a year old! What started as a fun side endeavour into the world of podcasting has become a community and so much more than we ever imagined. We thank each and every one of our listeners for their support and for listening. Here’s to a great year and an even better year to come! In this special, we introduce everyone to our HGB Research Crew – they share a little about themselves and their paranormal experiences along with answers to some “tough” questions we asked them – and we end the special answering listener questions. Enjoy!
