Kelly joins me on this Halloween Special for 2019 and we share an overview of the history of paranormal television in the United States. My love for Halloween and creepy stuff comes from the stuff I watched on television when I was a kid. I cut my teeth on reruns of the Twilight Zone and watching the classic Universal Monster Movies. But what got me checking out the weird books from the library were the paranormal based television shows and I continue to binge on them as an adult. This won’t be exhaustive, but will touch on our favorites. Then we are joined by author Kevin Killen to discuss his book Ghosts and Me and then we share listener stories of the unexplained! Happy Halloween!
History Goes Bump turns 5 today! That is five years of Moments in Oddity, This Month in Histories and haunted history. We’ve produced 350 episodes with over 4 million downloads and entertained while educating. But HGB isn’t just about the production. It’s about the community of listeners that have gathered around this little indie podcast and built it into a success. So, as we’ve done for the last three anniversary shows, this anniversary special features a Flash Fiction contest with stories by our listeners. We have our three winners and two runner-ups to share. Thanks for the listens!
The History Goes Bump Podcast celebrates its four year anniversary today! We’ve explored a couple hundred haunted locations, looked at the lives and afterlives of several famous people, marveled at legends, shared road trips and hosted specials. And there is so much more to come! On this anniversary special, we share the two runner-ups and three winners in our flash fiction contest, thank a bunch of people and Diane talks about the big change that came to HGB this year as she took the show solo! Thank you to all the listeners and if you want to help us celebrate, please share the podcast!
On this episode, we celebrate our three year anniversary. It’s been a wonderful journey! We have some new rewards for Executive Producers, which means more great stuff for them and we announce those changes on this episode. Last year, we held our first flash fiction contest to celebrate our special occasion and we have done it again this year. We share our two runner-ups and our three winners and read their contributions. And then Miranda Enzor, creator of the Spooky Little Halloween blog, joins us to talk all things Halloween and get us in the right frame of mind for our favorite holiday. As if we aren’t always in that frame of mind!
