'House Beautiful' Debuts Season Two Of "Dark House" Podcast

Hearst's House Beautiful will debut season two of its haunted-house podcast, "Dark House," on Wednesday July 13th. 

The series focuses on haunted houses ranging from the the Chop Chop House  in Boise, Idaho to the Conjuring House (Burrillville, Rhode Island).

The season starts with an introductory conversation with co-hosts Alyssa Fiorentino and Hadley Mendelsohn. It will be followed a week later with a “dive” into the Ackley House, near Sleepy Hollow. Ackley House is the first house to be declared “legally haunted” following a 1991 ruling by the New York Supreme Court (the so-called "Ghostbusters ruling”). 



On Aug. 10, the team moves on to the Manson Murder House in Los Angeles, where Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, and Steven Parent were slain by the Manson Family members in 1969. The co-hosts discuss the home’s architecture and peaceful (?) location.

The Aug. 17episode continues the Manson conversation with Scott Michaels, who conducts Dearly Departed Tours.  

The next  spot in this series is Grey Gardens, the East Hampton, New York setting featured in a 1975 documentary about Big Edie Bouvier Beale and Little Edie Beale, the aunt and cousin Jackie Kennedy Onassis  and Lee Radziwill. It is probably not so much haunted as run-down.  

Grey Gardens is also highlighted in the Aug. 31 episode—in a conversation with former owner, noted journalist Sally Quinn.

The series continues in September and the fall months, with visits to Boise Murder House, also known as the “Chop Chop House,” scene of a shooting in 1987, and the Kaimuki House, where attacks by an “unseen” force were reported.
