Tonight's show was a returning guest: author
(and psychic criminal profiler),
who'd been our guest
of last year.
After my introducing her, she clarified she tags along with investigations with the group
and how her husband chaffeurs her about to such sites.
(Before we officially got rolling, Craig pointed out the next day being
Karen was introduced regarding her book
Cincinnati Ghosts: And Other Tri-State Haunts,
about which tonight they'd be discussing, though her book
was mentioned as well, which we'd discussed with her last time.
Keeping things as light and funny as last time, she started out with the closed
(in the "No Tresspassing" sort of closed),
she had interviewed people who had risked injury and arrest to investigate the place.
Craig began hearing something and we explained to Karen how our show sometimes Gets Mysterious Sounds
(though off-air we deduced it was Karen moving her microphone);
we joked about it and I pointed out how
on her own weekly show,
once had a live-audio EVP when she interviewed the caretaker of
Robert the Doll.
Karen brought up there being a
creepy clown doll USPS commercial
running I immediately had to go find...
We then got into the location
Historic Loveland Castle,
and the atmosphere one gets in there, and game pieces on a board being moved with no one around.
To a Craig question she spoke about bringing mostly a camera and digital recorder when she tags along with PINK,
that she's occasionally gotten her own EVPs.
We discussed the distinction between daytime and nighttime activity, and how "ignoring" daytime activity is just pointless before going to break.
This was followed by Karen speaking of the Waynesville
which she described as Super Haunted; what with also it having spectral feline....
Next up was talking about
Amusement Park and its haunting/s,
as well as
Peter's Cartridge Factory.
Henry indicating our having listeners from the US, UK, Canada, Belgium, China and five Other/s...
Before going to break, Henry asked about
a creepy aspect of the Underground Railroad.
I took us into the second break, managed to get a good laugh out of Karen, particularly after a curiously long pause before the music began, where I couldn't resist jokingly reminding Henry that he'd gotten his Out.
Since her books, she's done talks and is hearing more and more about Private Domicile haunting/s,
usually not anything malicious: some all but comforting, such as probable family members Still Around.
Craig brought up the
and Karen reported some of the creepy activity that has gone on there.
Craig was also interested in the
which Karen reported has since been closed.
Craig asked about the For Rent house, from which tenants stay very briefly due to the residual murderous Haunted Playback activity.
Spring Grove Cemetery
She addressed the story of Lonely Rebecca of the
Tea Roses Tea Room,
who never went out, but Knew Everybody; that one night she was beaten to death.
I asked about
"allegedly" haunted bar.
It has a great story around it, Karen conveyed; it being such an actively haunted place: frightening from top to bottom, and that it's
not the place to go if one is "wishy washy."
One customer was beaten up in the restroom by an unseen entity.
It'd been a slaughterhouse, it'd had occult rituals, etc.
It's believed a sacrificed woman's head was dropped in the well.
Every investigation get evidence, and even Halloween-time news reports have their battery packs drained, etc.
Henry realized the time was running down, quickly asking about the
Blue Tower of Sorrow,
an underground railroad stop.
Karen gave out her book information,
that she does public speaking,
Henry wrapped up the show, reminding that the next week would be a live investigation broadcast from the
Morrison Masonic Lodge,
and from the Siffee series
