A Very Spooky Episode
Welcome Back Faithful Listeners!
Halloween celebrations in New Orleans are one of the things that make this city so incredibly special. I've been a huge fan of this ghoulish holiday ever since I was a little kid. Candy, mischief, scary stuff, and getting to be a completely different person for a night. What's not to love?
To further explore the uniqueness of Halloween in New Orleans, we are joined this week by two fantastic guests. The first, Hope Kodman vonStarnes, is no stranger to the show. Hope joined us for an episode in Season 1 where we discussed her efforts to open up Dynamo, her adult boutique. This time, Hope gives us insight into her other job as a New Orleans tour guide who regales visitors with tales of ghosts, murderers, and the macabre.
Our other guest, Jennifer O'Blenis, is a veteran of the New Orleans nightlife. Her experiences as a bartender on Frenchman St during Halloween range from humorous to pretty much what you'd expect from one of the most wild, chaotic times of year.
Anywho, great stuff here inluding Cole's favorite Halloween candy, tales of New Orleans axe murderers, and our favorite Halloween movies and shows to get you in the spirit of the season.
