What REALLY haunts us?

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

19-10-2023 • 44 mins

It’s almost Hallowe’en.  Sure it can be a scary time of year with ghosts and goblins, witches and warlocks, not to mention the living dead. (yuck)

But what is truly frightening in our lives?  Perhaps it’s something far deeper and darker.  A haunting that you can’t run away from in the light of day or even while you sleep.

Suzette Mayr has thought a lot about what haunts us as a writer and teacher - how it can prey on us, unsettle and unravel us, and even destroy us.

I loved this far ranging, imaginative conversation on haunted houses (she lived in one), why we run to and away from horror, and what it means when you are “the monster” or the other.

And yes she believes in ghosts.
