S2 Ep4: Man Haunted by Dead Mother, and a Robbery With a Twist

‘Behind The Headlines of History’ podcast, Season 2, Episode 4

We’re hopping across the Atlantic for this week’s episode – that’s right, all our stories this week are sourced from newspapers in the USA. And there are some corkers hidden in that American newsprint.

Whilst Brad doesn’t believe in ghosts, the subject of his story – Mr Frank Swulius – certainly did; the spooky actions of his cursed dead mother are reported in The Chicago Tribune on 14 Dec 1902. And Michala’s found a robbery with a twist; why did ten men cause pandemonium at the house of one Mrs Olive Whedon (as reported in The New York Times on 24 Oct 1885)? Listen to find out!

And our News in Briefs involve a toothbrush fire, and a rather peculiar discovery in someone’s pocket…

All newspaper articles referenced in this episode were sourced on Newspapers.com, with additional research conducted by Brad and Michala using Ancestry and other resources.
