Debunking Hauntings: Let’s Take a Trip to Kenny’s Tiki Bar

Kenny Biddle, science enthusiast, Skeptical Help Bar videocast host, writer for the “I Am Kenny Biddle” blog on Facebook and Skeptical Inquirer magazine, and owner of a backyard tiki bar,  joins us for a laugh-filled episode discussing the credibility of some of the most famous hauntings in America. We debunk photos from The Stanley Hotel (well-known as the inspiration for The Shining’s Overlook Hotel), review Meagan and Kenny’s encyclopedic Ghost Hunters knowledge at Eastern State Penitentiary, reveal the misunderstood history of the Baxter Avenue Morgue, and discuss the maybe not-so-strange happenings in the Astoria Underground Tunnels. Of course, no ghost-filled episode is complete without the Ghost Adventures crew! To hear about these haunted locations, and get an update on the history of Newme, listen now!
