Episode 52: Twain, Faulkner, and Ladies in White // The Cahill House Haunting

Patrice and Marleah drink Winter Smashes and talk about why men never throw themselves off of tall things in legends and how ghosts (or an arson) burnt down a house to set themselves free.

Twain, Faulkner & Ladies in White //

Why are there so many Lover’s Leaps on the Mississippi River? What are the stories behind them and what is the truth? Patrice takes us through literary history, Victorianism, and native (or not so native) legends.

The Cahill House Haunting //

When the Gregory family moved into the mansion in Gulfport Mississippi’s Bayou View neighborhood, they didn’t know what secrets it held. Closet ghosts, bedside ghosts, candle ghosts, child ghosts, and ghosts were so loud they had to wear earplugs.
