S8 Ep. 3: The Phantom Rickshaw (Part 1)

Spread the love

Hello dear listeners and welcome back to another episode of The ODDentity Podcast on the PodMoth Media Network, your bi-weekly foray into the weird, wonky, and sometimes downright spooky.

If you’ll permit me, I’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your messages of condolence and your unwavering support over the last few weeks. It was truly appreciated and made me realize even more how much my listeners and my podcast community mean to me.

This week, I present you with a Victorian ghost story. Part 1 of it, at least. It’s a little longer, so the next episode will feature the tale’s conclusion. Some of these stories are so wonderful and yet they don’t nearly get the readers and appreciation that they deserve. The Victorians were keen on ghost stories. We have that in common. So, settle in next to the fire, pull the blankets up to your chin, and try to ignore the shadows lingering at the edge of the firelight. I’m sure they’re all conjured by your imagination.
