The History Goes Bump Podcast launched October 1st, 2014 with the premise of being a niche podcast that wasn’t already out there. This would be a history podcast with a twist: our histories would go bump in the night…or during the day. Ghosts don’t care about time. At least, that is our theory. And we have lots of those, that we like to share on the podcast. We feature historic locations that are rumored to be haunted and the podcast is a ghost tour for the theater of the mind. These locations are from all around the world and many of them are places you probably have never heard of before. We do, of course, cover all the famous haunted places, but what makes us different is that we delve into places that are not well known and we are able to do this because they are suggested by our listeners. And that is something special about HGB too: The community built around the podcast.
Through the years, the podcast has evolved from being hosted by two women, Diane and Denise, to a solo hosted project and then Diane brought Kelly on as co-host. With this evolution has come a more immersive experience in which the listener is taken to the locations with music and sound. If you are a quirky, nerdy history lover and you like the odd, mysterious and supernatural, then History Goes Bump is the podcast for you! What is a ghost? Are these places really haunted? We leave that to you to decide!
