You guys rock!
A huge thank you to all of our listeners and patrons for allowing us to be weirdos. We have so much more in store in 2019! Just you wait.

‘This show was born four years ago after great friends John Schalcosky from The Odd Fascinating and Mysterious History of Pittsburgh and Marta Mazzoni discovered their love of all things macabre, spooky, and historical. Spooky Stories started as a salon in Marta’s living room complete with friends wearing pj’s, psychics, and many a late night conversation. After releasing the episode to the public on Marta’s show Marta On The Move Podcast, her and John soon recieved many email requests to make this event live so the public can join in the fun.
Last year they held the first public performance of True Spooky Stories at Carnegie Coffee House, and the tickets sold out within days. This year, they decided to have a larger venue for a greater opportunity for more citizens to join in the fun. Thanks to the support from Barebones Production Company located in historic Braddock, PA. True Spooky Stories will be held there this October 14th at 6:30pm.
Join Marta and John as they uncover history that will make your toes curl in a live podcast with homemade sound effects. After four years, friends John and Marta have gone on ghost hunts, uncovered crazy historical information about Pittsburgh, and they truly love the Halloween season and bringing this history to light. You will laugh, be spooked and learn some interesting history of Pittsburgh you may have never known.”
