A Few Ghost Ships

Episode Notes

On this episode we check out three different examples of ghost ships and their stories, including a merchant vessel that, for a time, was a luxury yacht of the Hollywood elite, a once proud five-masted schooner run aground under mysterious circumstances, and the bizarre tale of a freighter ship found drifting with the entirety of it's crew deceased on board. This one was a bit of a challenge to put together, I honestly didn't really know what I wanted to do with it while I was gathering the information. Eventually, I got a clearer picture of how I wanted to share these stories with you all, and this episode is the result! Thanks for checking it out!
