Transcript: Halloween Special: Spirits of Greater Boston

AMANDA McLOUGHLIN
Welcome to a very special Halloween episode of Spirits Podcast.

JULIA SCHIFINI
Uh, we wanted to give you some spooky from one of America’s up-and-coming communities. Uhh, the City of Red Line. Uh, we reached out to Third Sight Media and talked to them about some of the strange and unusual happenings of Red Line?

AMANDA McLOUGHLIN
But honestly? It’s what happened after the episode that’s particularly spooky. Since our recording with Third Sight’s media-rep Michael Tate, we were having trouble getting in touch with him. We reached out for some follow-up questions, figure out his twitter-links, stuff like that, but we didn’t get a reply. We reached out to Third Sight also and found out that not only has the company shuttered, but Michael is apparently…missing?

JULIA SCHIFINI
Isn’t that super freaky?

AMANDA McLOUGHLIN
I was kinda torn over whether or not we should release this episode, actually. Continue reading “Transcript: Halloween Special: Spirits of Greater Boston”

DIPSHIT — James Capobianco

Are you here to inform me Isaiah Powell has been released?

GEMMA — Lydia Anderson

Unfortunately not.

DIPSHIT

Then I have nothing further to say to you. You’ve taken my statement. And I will not offer any further information, no matter how relentlessly you torture me in this off-site, non-regulated pain chamber.

CHARLOTTE: — Summer Unsinn

So the bottom line is he likes to be Baby-bjorn-worn when he’s not eating, sleeping or taking a bath. It might be hard on the back, but easy on the ears. He had a snack around 4:30 so he shouldn’t be hungry again until 5:45 or 6, depending on how he’s feeling. We’ve been pushing the solids lately and there’s some mashed peas, avocado, lentils, peaches — you can try to give him a couple of those but you make sure he wears a bib. In fact, it might be a good idea to just leave him in his diaper. It’ll be easier to hose him down and PJ him up once he’s done. You might want to stand back after you slip him his plate. He likes to paint more than eat and he’s an abstract expressionist. Jackson Pollock style.

LOUISAJulia Propp

Healthy distance. Got it.
