Since humans first took to the seas, stories of ghost ships haunting the waves have been told to pass the time on long voyages. Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return on episode 114 of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show to share some of these maritime tales. English folksinger David Walton narrates a story researched and written by T. Fox Dunham about an old American cruiser docked in Philadelphia. The ghosts of dead sailors still crew the USS Olympia, grabbing visitors, manifesting in the engine room and declaring their duty to go down with the ship. These spirits continue to haunt visitors and staff from Philadelphia's Independence Seaport Museum in Penn’s Landing where the ship can be visited. They play some music from bands Handmade Moments & Rue De Prague. And Phil talks about the Ghost Detective, Mike Worden: a paranormal investigator and detective who gathers evidence of ghosts in the Hudson Valley, New York. The hosts finish this episode with a short horror story by Fox about a sleeping demon awoken by imperial scientists in the Victorian Age: The Future and Power of the British Empire.
