What blends true crime, paranormal activity, the Great Depression, adultery, murder, Hollywood glamour, and unsolvable mystical mysteries? What’s that you say? You already read the episode title and you know we’re talking about the Cecil Hotel? That was smart. The Cecil Hotel was built in 1924 in downtown Los Angeles and it quickly got a reputation for being spooky as all hell. The building has been home to an outrageous number of suicides, murders, and just plain messed up goings on. And our guest, insanely talented improviser and writer Heather Anne Campbell, thinks there’s more than random coincidence at play here. Together we cover the eerie history of the hotel and branch out into such topics as whether ghosts are real, how many people kill themselves in Nevada, our specific anxieties, and what we the living owe to dead people. It’s creepy and it’s beautiful and we have some laughs too!
