Episode #4: Legends & Hauntings of Louisiana
Play • 44 min

Tonight’s trip takes us into the city that really never sleeps. No matter what you call it, NOLA, the Crescent City, the Big Easy…we all know about the secrets and legends that New Orleans holds. It’s a city full of diversity, vast cultural experiences, and a lurid history that takes us back almost to our beginnings as a nation. The city is known for its lavish parades during Mardi Gras and its countless Voodoo shops and ghost tours, its creole and Cajun ancestry, the food and the music. Just going to the city is an experience itself, but all of that is surface level beauty that houses a dark past: a history of murder, strong magics, vampires, and plenty of spirits to haunt the city and beyond.

BONUS: Can you figure out where I effed up royally in this episode? Besides tripping over my words and talking to fast :P
