#96 True Spooky Stories of Pittsburgh Part III LIVE!

We are back for True Spooky Stories of Pittsburgh Part III! If you have tuned into Marta On The Move Podcast in the past, the lead up to Halloween always has this episode included.

Usually, John Schalcosky from The Odd, Mysterious, and Fascinating History of Pittsburgh comes over, we hang out in Pj's, invite a few friends and chill out to record.  We got so many requests from fans to be able to view a taping of the live podcast, that we decided to take it to the public this year! What a ball we had.

On Friday the 13th of October we entertained around 30 folk for a sold out showing of True Spooky Stories. We loved it, and hope everyone else did as well. We will be back next year, and hope to open it up to more folks to get to enjoy.

We were truly honored to have some guests join the show and tell some stories of their own. They were really cool. So I hope you will join us and tune in to this podcast. Curl up, dim the lights, and take in some true history of Pittsburgh.

Thank you to everyone who participated and shared their stories for the show, we really appreciate it.  We truly do love hosting this event, and cannot way to see everyone next year!

#95 Angelmakers- Songs For Female Serial Killers

What is it about serial killers that makes us interested in them? My Netflix account is full with documentaries about them.  Thousands of books have been written about them.  Even I, at a young age was obsessed with all the information I could find. Why they did what they did, and more so, HOW could they do it.

In my lead up to Halloween I found something happening in Pittsburgh that I felt was the perfect fit. Angelmakers- Songs For Female Serial Killers written by Molly Rice and Rusty Thelin from Real/Time Interventions that shows at the new Aftershock Theater in Pittsburgh.

Men get enough of the spotlight in this area. Fish, Bundy, Gacy, Gaskins, Gibbs, or my personal favorite, Holmes. ( The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America is the best book, folks)

There isn't as much spotlight on women as there are on men, so it is interesting that Real/Time Interventions decided to create a true crime rock concert to showcase some of these women. The show runs October 25th to November 11th. I for one can't wait to gain some new perspective in their troubled lives.

The show will feature an all female band, comprised of both local and international talent including- Milia Ayache, Michele Dunlap, and Zorahna.  After all, #everyonederservesonesong

Go check my previous episode on Castle Blood, if case you missed it, and stay tuned for True Spooky Stories of Pittsburgh Part III!

#94 Castle Blood

Pittsburgh has it's fair share of horror attractions, ranging from hay rides, to scare houses, forrest trails, and much more. I have not, however, found an attraction that combines all of my favorites things into one... until now.

Castle Blood was introduced to me recently by a fan on my Facebook page.  He suggested that the experience was right up my alley, boy was he right! The attraction combines immersive theater, escape rooms, AND haunted houses all in one. Didn't think it was possible?  Neither did I.

Some may say the only draw back of Castle Blood is it's location.  It's "home" is located in Monessen, a short 45-50 minute ride from downtown Pittsburgh.  I for one, think it makes it a destination, a planned journey, an adventure. When an event is located right in your city, sometimes it is easy to say "Well, I know it is there. We will go next year!" I think one of it's charms is where Castle Blood is located.

While they are trying to revitalize it, Monessen is a forgotten industrial town. Hard to think that Frances McDormand was born there with what it looks like today. Most of the building are vacant, overgrown with foliage.  The coke furnaces are still running, so the air seems thick. Hardly anyone walked the streets as we drove up on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I know this all sound unappealing, but it makes for a perfect spooky experience.

Castle Blood is located in a 100 year old old funeral home. (How grand is that?) While this location is relatively new for them, Castle Blood has been operating for over 20 years. I arranged a podcast and tour with owner Ricky Dick.

Ricky has been in this industry since the age of 16. He walked us through the house without giving too much away (since I was planning on coming back) The front room gave me legit goosebumps as the original parlor and viewing room.  The rest of the space is disorienting, intricate, fun, and spooky.  The actors are there with you as teams of 8 take the challenge of getting through various rooms.  It really is all of the things I love in one!

Tune into this episode as we walk through Castle Blood!
