Episode 326: Credulous Ghost-Hunting Dupe

January 11th, 2019 | Robin

Struggle to stay one step ahead of the authorities as the Gaming Hut finds ways to do the classic trope of the protagonist framed for a crime in a roleplaying scenario.

The Horror Hut enters an old-timey uncanny valley as we look at the wax museum sub-genre.

In Ken and/or Robin Talk To Someone Else, we shrink GMing maven Matt Colville from his native video format to audio only.

Finally the Consulting Occultist unwinds the deeply complicated tale of the Cock Lane Ghost, as first penetrated by intrepid occult investigator Samuel Johnson.

    The obvious fiction story is “The Waxwork” (1931) by A. M. Burrage, a story much adapted for radio (and T.V.). A journalist stays overnight alone in a wax museum’s “Murderers’ Den” to write an article about the experience. But is he alone?
