|The Albion Hotel, rumoured to be home to the ghost of Al Capone's Guelph girlfriend.|
Just in time for Halloween, this episode of the Guelph Politicast is all about about ghosts. So who are you gonna call? Greg Taylor, the man behind the Ghost Walk of Guelph, of course.
The Ghost Walk is a one-hour tour around the downtown core of the Royal City where Greg shares stories of the spiritual and the supernatural, and how they pertain to various Guelph landmarks. Greg has since expanded his business to include an annual walk on the University of Guelph campus in addition to his regular tours of the core.
But I hope you're not going to listen to this thinking you've found away around paying to take the walk. Nope, Greg and I talk about how he got into researching our local history, the surprise moments he experiences on the walk, and how he doesn't want to be called a "ghost hunter." Nope, he's a guy that likes to use ghost stories to tell you about local history. Essentially, he's making learning fun.
Has Greg ever seen a ghost? He talks about that too.
Let us gather around the (metaphorical) fire and learn more about Guelph's ghosts on this week's edition of Guelph Politicast.
