Lucumí and the Mango Tree

Spread the love

Mel collects Latin American and Caribbean paranormal stories. As a first generation Cuban American, she’s no stranger to Lucumí and Santería practitioners warning of spirits in her family’s home. But when she comes face to face with angry ghosts in her own space, she’s found ways to make them go away. We’re excited to bring on Mel Trahan of ¡Ay Ghost Mio! on this episode.
