From haunted doors to haunted castles, this urban legends episode is sure to have SOMETHING that would scare a child version of yourself (or an adult version, who are we to judge!). Also ghost sharks, dub-step hating ghosts, and spooky text message alerts.


Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about or mentions of death, vomiting, violence, creepy dolls, accidental death, and sharks. 



Megan Lewis and Lexie Henning are the hosts of The Reading Party Podcast, where they  read, watch, snack & chat their way through books and films set in the ancient world.
