“If you're talking smack, you're going to get scratched”. This week, the girls are back discussing paranormal and, specifically, about another former infirmary. Pack your bags as we go to Winchester, Indiana, in discussing the history and reported haunts of the Randolph County Infirmary. This place has a lot of very intense paranormal reports coming out of it - which begs the question: is it haunted by those who once lived there? Or something perhaps demonic? Tune in and find out! Need a distraction? We got you. Podcast promo: A Nefarious Nightmares Podcast - check them out!
