Dan and Scarlet open the episode with an Astrology and Tarot forecast for the week of October 28 to November 3, 2019, followed by a very special Halloween storytelling episode, Ghosts in the Garden.  Over the course of two Sundays, we threw a two part campfire event in the back yard of Hostel Earphoria, a DIY arts collective in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, where attendees shared their spookiest paranormal stories.  This episode is a compilation of some of the scariest stories that were recorded over the two nights.  Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to this great event!  Our patrons will get a hefty extension with extra material, so if you would like more Halloween goodness, you can become a patron for only $5 a month to get our episode extensions.
