7. Two Haunted California Highways

Matt has spent far too many hours of his life driving on two California roads – Highway 152 between Monterey and Fresno, and Highway 246 in Santa Barbara County. Turns out that his commute time should have been way more interesting than it actually was. Now he feels a bit cheated. He’ll tell you why in this episode.

This episode was written by Matthew Armstrong with music by Matthew Armstrong and production assistance from Kaylia Metcalfe.

A transcript of this episode is available here.

Show Notes:

In honor of creepy “Women in White” stories connected to a highway that runs past a reservoir, we decided to feature a photo of that reservoir with a woman who never wears white for this blog post.
