    I was glad to see this show back on my iPod this morning! I was expecting new episodes today.

    My mom has two Ouija boards downstairs with all of our board games. She won’t let us play with them, though.

  2. Brandon,

    It’s good to have you back.

    The best games are always the ones Mom won’t let us play, aren’t they? It kind of makes you wonder why you have them, doesn’t it? Who is playing with them?

    Much more is coming….

    Nice Info! I’m surprised you didn’t give another story though…preferably the one I gave you… Anyway, I was wondering the frequency of the show this year. Perhaps every other day? Every two days? Also, my mom and my friends don’t believe in any of the stuff that you talk about, including Ouija Boards, so they don’t care if I play with them, but that also brings up the question of where I got my Halloween addiction from. My friends don’t believe in Ouija Boards either, so I usually can’t play them…Oh well. Anyway if you could find another story, like mine (not to be pushy), about the Ouija Board, that would certainly be a great episode this year.

  4. Hi, Tony,

    I’m glad you enjoyed this edition. I always intended to delve into the history of Ouija, even before I discovered the Letter D.’s story. I admire your persistence. I’m trying to provide variety in the program, so I’m not sure when I’ll revisit a Ouija story.

    I don’t know why you are so enamored with Halloween, but the way I see it is…why wouldn’t you be? It’s such a great time of year….

    –HH
