About Us

What happens when an extrovert and an introvert come together? They host a podcast that combines their love of history and hauntings!! Join us each week as we tell tales of famous, infamous, and almost famous locations around the world, and why they became terrifying places to visit.

Latest Episodes

The Bird Cage Theater

EAs we always say here at HoaH, the 5th time or 6th time is the charm. This week we bring you The Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone, AZ! This location was to be our very first episode but our audio tech didn’t know...well, anything. Cigar smoke blown in your face when you’re alone, being shoved by nothing away from the poker tables, and boots and spurs making their way through the place despite not having a body in them... Come with us as we take you back to 1880s Arizona and the “wickedest, wildest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast”! For extra credit, please check out our podcast pal, All The Things That Keep Us Up At Night on your favorite podcast station today!

The Hotel San Carlos

EGuys, today we bring you a hometown haunt - the historic Hotel San Carlos in downtown Phoenix, AZ! A phantom woman that watches you sleep, an elevator with a mind of its own, a paranormal experience had by one of our hosts, and so much more! Change into your shorts, tank tops, flip flops, and slap on some Zinka sunscreen for a toasty ghosty time here in the Valley Of the Sun! Please check out one of our buddy podcasts - The Paranormal Burrito!

The Hotel San Carlos

Alcatraz

EThis week's episode is a heavy hitter, class. ALCATRAZ! And it has (almost) little to do with the fact we had our Cinco de Mayo pre-game while we recorded it. Archie comes at us with his most in depth history yet. Carrie tries to follow up that impressiveness with a red eyed "thing", a gangster that is far less intimidating when he plays his banjo, a phantom lighthouse, and every canary song, thump, bump, and screaming in between. Settle in for a ride that is so far off the rails it can only be brought to you by tequila.

E"Pee for Houston, pee for Austin, pee for the state my heart got lost in. Aaaand shake twice for Texas" - Sheldon Cooper. Archie wouldn't let Carrie sing that in this episode, so she's singing it here! Today we go to Austin, TX and the STUNNINGLY beautiful Driskill Hotel! Built in 1886, this historic hotel has seen it's share. Beyond that, it's had more nips, tucks, plumps, and renovations than a Kardashian. Here you will find phantom cigar smoke, a jilted bride to be who is down with identity theft, Annie Lennox, Concrete Blonde, and.....Lizzo?! As always, please consider the organization that supports us - Love Heals Rescue!
