Every house is haunted. In each episode of Family Ghosts, we investigate the true story behind a mysterious figure whose legend has followed a family for generations. Grandmothers who were secretly jewel smugglers, uncles who led double lives, siblings who vanished without a trace, and other ghostly characters who cast shadows over our lives in ways that might not be immediately obvious. We are all formed in part by our familial collections of secrets, intrigues, and myths. By engaging with each others’ legends, perhaps we can see each others’ realities more clearly. Hosted by Moth Grand Slam winner Sam Dingman, whose stories have been featured on Risk!, TBTL, Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything, and The Moth Radio Hour.

Some of the best storytelling in any podcast I have heard. Heartstopping and real.
Do you remember those fantasies you had about family members who were way cooler than they actually were: spies, mystics, the cousin who joined the circus and/or a mysterious uncle who actually did work at Nintendo... or was that just me? Regardless, indulge in the whimsical fantasies of having a family that was a bit more on the exciting side then what you actually got.
This one was so good! The podcast web site says another season is ready to go, but it has been a year now since season 1 ended. I sure hope we hear more from this one.
