Show Notes

Happy Halloween! On this week’s 51%, we get in the spooky spirit and swap ghost stories with Leanna Renee Hieber and Andrea Janes, authors of A Haunted History of Invisible Women. From Lizzie Borden and Sarah Winchester to the victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, Janes and Hieber analyze why women are so prominent in America’s “ghostlore” – and what it says about us.

Guests: Leanna Renee Hieber, Andrea Janes, ghost tour guides with Boroughs of the Dead and authors of A Haunted History of Invisible Women: True Stories of America's Ghosts

51% is a national production of WAMC Northeast Public Radio. It's produced and hosted by Jesse King. Our associate producer is Jody Cowan, our executive producer is Dr. Alan Chartock, and our theme is "Lolita" by the Albany-based artist Girl Blue.
