Personal paranormal stories from Colorado

What would it take for your parents to believe that your childhood friend is actually a ghost? Would growing up in a haunted house lead you to fear entities from the other side, or would you go chasing after them, even voluntarily sleep in the same rooms as them?

Today’s guest is an artisan, a podcaster, and a ghost hunter, and her thirst for knowledge of the unseen began when a little ghost girl started braiding her hair.

Much to our delight, we stumbled across the Hart and Horn shop display at Midsummer Scream last week in Long Beach, CA, where we were able to corner her and coerce this interview out of her. And we think you’ll be glad that we did, Hainted Loves, because hoo boy, does Angela have some eerie personal paranormal stories.

Haunted places in Colorado and California mentioned in this episode

Ghosts named John on the RMS Queen Mary

The Queen Mary is a permanently docked luxury cruise liner from the 1930s that is now a haunted hotel in Long Beach, CA. The ship itself boasts 600 ghosts, a lot of whom seem to be named John. Two ghosts named John (John Pedder and John MacKenzie) died nearly a decade apart by being crushed in two by the watertight Door 13. Both ghosts hang around that door and grab women’s butts.

John Henry was a welder whose body was found around the time of the Depression during the boat’s construction. His ghost also likes the ladies and hangs around what is now the Green Room. And Captain John Treasure Jones who can still be seen around the bridge. He’s not known as frisky, however.
