Thriller Throwback with The Ghidotti Podcast

Halloween is right around the corner and the holiday is sure to be filled with trick-or-treating, candy and parties. However, the Halloween season isn’t just about wearing costumes and eating too much chocolate. It’s also the ideal time to indulge in ghost stories and horror movies. We’ve had the pleasure of hearing some supernatural and mysterious tales from right here in Arkansas on The Ghidotti Podcast. With spooky season upon us, check out some of our favorite conversations from the past few years.

Linda Howell:

Historian and paranormal researcher Linda Howell laughs when she is referred to as “the ghost lady.” However, as the owner of Haunted Tours of Little Rock and author of a book with the same name, it’s easy to see how she’s earned that title. Tune into this previous episode of The Ghidotti Podcast (formerly The Arkansas 100 Podcast) to hear more about the most haunted places in Little Rock, common misconceptions about ghosts and even recordings from the spirits themselves. 

 

Bill Ott:

Dubbed “America’s Most Haunted Hotel,” the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs is said to be home to a number of ghostly residents and other paranormal activity. Don’t miss this interview with Bill Ott, director of marketing and communications at the Crescent Hotel, as he shares more about eerie happenings and discoveries during a tour of the campus.

 

Lyle Blackburn:

With a population of approximately 800 people, Fouke seems like the epitome of small-town Arkansas. However, reported sightings of the Boggy Creek Monster over the last 100 years tell a different story. Check out this episode of The Ghidotti Podcast as cryptozoologist and author Lyle Blackburn shares more about the origin of the Boggy Creek Monster and how it might relate to Bigfoot, the Yeti and other famous creatures.
