"Ghost stories get a makeover... Southern Gothic isn't your typical podcast, in fact I'd argue there isn't anything typical about it"- Podcast Magazine, November 2020
Southern Gothic explores the history of the American South through tales of haunted places, true crime and eerie legends. Episodes have included such topics as the Myrtles Plantation, Greenbrier Ghost, Lavinia Fisher and many more. Researched and written by a professional archivist, each episode of Southern Gothic goes deeper than a mere retelling of old campfire tales, presenting the historical and cultural context of each story to the backdrop of a unique soundscape, filled with original music and custom recorded effects.
