Poltergeists with Jenny Ashford

Our guest tonight Jenny Ashford is a writer, graphic designer, and has a horror blog called, Goddess of Hellfire, that contains short stories and articles, and her reviews and opinions on horror films and books. Her books The Rochdale Poltergeist and The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist are true stories of paranormal activity and are the focus of our show together tonight. They are both in a word, terrifying. The book The Rochedale Polterigeist documents The Gardner family who is haunted by flying objects, disembodied voices, phantom smells and sounds, and strangest of all, copious falls of water seemingly coming from nowhere. Jenny Ashford's second book is called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist , also a true story. In December of 1982, when Tom Ross was thirteen years old, he took a week’s vacation to Mammoth Lakes in California with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. Almost from the moment they arrived at their condo, they experienced a near-constant barrage of bizarre phenomena that escalated over their stay, and seemed to follow them after they left. Items moved around by themselves, shades flew open when no one was near them, bloody tissues appeared out of nowhere, words appeared on windows in empty rooms, a blue haze seemed to hover near the ceiling, a door chain was broken from the inside by what appeared to be a clawed hand, and disembodied voices emerged from corners. Thirty-two years later, the four witnesses decided to gather together to tell their story.
