There are desolate roads in America that inspire sweaty palms, goosebumps and fuel the imagination with images straight out of a horror flick. These are roads where no sane person would want to have a breakdown in a car occur. Some of these roads have inspired tales of ghost lights. These are lights that seem to move of their own accord, always staying just out of reach. Legends have spawned about headless ghosts swinging lanterns as they search for their heads. Some people believe that these lights could be attributed to UFO activity. The Bragg Light in Texas and the Paulding Light in Michigan, are two of these ghost lights. The roads where they are seen are walled by thick forests. Both have haunting tales that claim that a ghost or possibly something worse, are responsible for the lights. And both have had skeptics claim that it is nothing more than swamp gas or light reflecting from something else. Are these natural phenomenon or is something supernatural going on here? Join us and our special guest, listener Summer White, as we explore the history and haunting of these ghost lights! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Bob Sherfield and features the Ma'nene Festival in Indonesia and This Day in History features the Okeechobee Hurricane in Florida. Our show topic was suggested by listener Summer White.

I have been listening since last October and found you when looking for podcast to go with Halloween. I have enjoyed listen to you both and what prompted me to comment finally is you mentioned Metro State in this episode. I went to school there also and graduated in 2011. Metro became a university during my last year there. Now it is Metropolitan State University of Denver. I also never knew the Tivoli was
haunted and wanted to let you know that it is sort of a student union for the Auraria Campus. The movie theater is not there anymore but has a food court and campus bookstore for the three schools that are on the Auraria Campus. I always find your podcasts interesting and end up having to google some of the locations I have never heard of. Thank you for the effort and time you put into this podcast. Look forward to the next episode and learning about new interesting places.
