American Hauntings Podcast / Night Doctors, Needle Men, And Murder

Listen on

Episode notes

Vampires, ghosts, monsters, and an assortment of murderers. All of them have roamed the streets of New Orleans at one time or another and have become part of the city’s spookiest lore. Some of these boogeymen – from the Needle Men to the Gown Man to Hugging Molly – have sometimes even caused more fear than the killers have. And that’s largely because they conjured up some very bad memories of the past, especially when it came to the Night Doctors.
