    S10 Ep7: Pubs Most Haunted!
    Please come out with us for a little drink, won't you, dear guest? Tonight we're on the prowl for spooky pubs. Pubs Most Haunted! That's what you get when you build a public house on ancient Ley Lines or inside of the world's oldest, prehistoric stone circle. Oh, and it helps to have a load of shifty characters living there down through time, along with the performing of mysterious rituals, and a slew of dreadful murders. These components make troubled spirits feel right at home! Please take your seat...

    S10 Ep6: The Loremen Crossover - The Bedtime Story
    Back by popular demand! The Loremen return to The Midnight Library for a comforting slumber party! Well, that's probably not what they'll tell you, but maybe you shouldn't be so trustful of two strange men who call themselves "The Loremen". Tonight, James Shakeshaft & Alasdair Beckett-King find themselves holed up in The Red Room, and actually have the nerve to request a bedtime story to be told to them by your host, Miranda Merrick! (How else would we end up with a horror warning?) Please get cozy... and brace yourself!

    S10 Ep5: Essential Eccentrics!
    Is your uncle the one that makes little suits of armor for his pet squirrels- or is that you? There's a rumor that Miranda was raised by someone who insisted that their pet horse eat in the kitchen. There's a bishop in the village who wears a Batman costume under his holy robes (you didn't hear that from us though). Eccentrics are some of the most colorful people you may ever have the pleasure of knowing. Tonight, let us introduce you to some doozies! There's a natural-born showman in furs & jewels, a "Catch-Me-If-You-Can" wish granter, a pre-death funeral ride, and- a troublesome drunk... who may be... a horrid villain you've most certainly heard of! Please take your seat- and buckle up!

And, if The League of Lady Gravediggers have their way... how you can join them.

    S9 Ep9: The Murder of Durable Mike Malloy
    Greetings, My Dear... Lone... Guest, I thought I'd have you in for tea on this beautiful, early fall evening... to discuss... MURDER. But, not just any murder... a slow, plotting, gentle murder... at least at first. The clueless victim didn't even realize he was being murdered, so that's better, right? We think so. Please, make yourself comfortable alone here with me and... enjoy your treats and tea. And everything... will be just fine... eventually. Love, Miranda

    ps. wear gloves if you have them... for... reasons. Thank you for visiting and... I'm sorry

    S9 Ep7: The Victorian Obsession with Shrunken Heads
    My very dear guest, we have a rather unique and meaningful story as tonight's offering here in The Reading Room.  It will undoubtedly pique your morbid interest, as the subject is "The Victorian Obsession with Shrunken Heads"  But more than this, I believe it will touch, or even awaken, something with in you that will cause you to think differently about this dire subject- and the two groups of people and the victims of the process whom the story is about.  It's my honor to share their story with you.  Please make yourself at home to listen.  Sincerely, Miranda Merrick
