Join your host, Alex Matsuo, as she interviews author and historian Pat Fitzhugh, about possibly the greatest American haunting, The Bell Witch.  The Bell family endured four years of mayhem and terror at the hands of a sinister, demon-like entity named, “Kate.” She beat the Bell children mercilessly; she argued with the clergy; she told of people’s pasts and predicted their futures; she spoke in multiple human voices, sometimes even in tongues; and she inflicted a horrendous disease upon John Bell, which led to his slow and grueling demise.
