What if your house was legally haunted? The Ackleys of Nyack, New York had to deal with just that. We look into the legal precedent of paranormal activity, real estate hauntings, and ask the question: At what point is it worth it to own a haunted house? 

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about or mentions of legal disputes, racism, The Confederate Flag, slavery, violence against indigenous people, death, capitalism, real estate, and haunting.
