Ghosts, spirits, demons. They all capture our imaginations. They all haunt our dreams and maybe more. Whether you believe in them or not, they are a part of our culture and our lives.
Welcome to Spirits on the Plains, a podcast to take you on a journey through the most haunted region west of the Mississippi.
As the Gateway to the West, our haunted history has left behind endless stories from the bloody Border War to a den of Mob activity, and possibly the eye witnesses to tell them. And I believe the tales of the paranormal walk hand in hand with the stories of our history.
I’m a Kansas City native who has always been fascinated by our rich and unique history. I think David McCullough, the Pulitzer prize winning author and historian said it best when he said:
“I can’t think of another piece of landscape of similar size where so many things have happened that have been of significance in the story of America.”
And ever since I got over my fear of horror movies when I was a kid, I’ve developed a love for all things that go bump in the night. The goal of this podcast is to explore the stories of our history and the haunted structures that house them. And I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoy writing it.
