Firstly the reason these stories are important to me is that ghosts were people once. It’s fascinating to learn about how they lived what they did. Their presence gives us a glimpse into the lives of regular people in these towns. You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy the narrative. Not all spectres are fearsome and angry,
some want to communicate, after all, they were people. It’s not as though death steals our humanity usually the circumstances of life or choices we make do that. That's a different kind of story that haunts me.
Many of the residents would not accept there are haunted locations in town. They chalk up the odd experiences up to pranksters. One prank which many a young drunk person engaged on their way home from the pub was called “roof rocking”. It is just as it sounds, throwing rocks at people’s roofs.
Join us on Patreon for episode about the Gentlemanly Bushranger, is that an oxymoron or what? We discuss that. A coin counterfeiter, which feels like he kept copying himself over and over, did he ever get it right? Another is of a tragic architect, how does one fall from such an esteemed position to die as a footnote of his apprentices story? What brings a policeman, mailman and publican together in one episode? It's murder. The Shady Creek Murder. I have also become obsessed with the small ghost of Yallourn, Victoria.
