Episode 53 Sources: New Orleans Birthday Extravaganza!

We went to New Orleans for Paige’s 30th birthday, and thought this was a perfect opportunity to tell you about some of the spookiest stories from one of America’s spookiest cities! Listen to hear our take on the heinous crimes of Madame LaLaurie, the ghosts of Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, and burial practices in the Big Easy.
