The pursuit of the truth has been a motivating factor for folks throughout history. 1860s London is no different – that’s where the story that Rooster and I covered on the latest episode of Phone It In begins. “The Ghost Club” is a paranormal investigation and research organization, founded in London in 1862 to investigate sightings of ghosts and hauntings.

Of all people, Charles Dickens is thought to have been one of its founding members, open to the idea of having an encounter but also interested in exposing frauds. This was an era of spiritualism…it was super easy for con men to pull one over on people who believed in such things. So, that’s where we start. The founding of The Ghost Club, how Arthur Conan Doyle fell for some really dumb shit back in the day, and what this group is up to today. Ultimately, this show had us asking what he had to do to get our own version of The Ghost Club up and running.
