The Midnight Citizen 229: “(Definitely) Haunted Savannah” (7/18/21)

1:59:50 — Join Mike on the balcony of his hotel room in Florida and on the steps outside his apartment after a very long and fulfilling trip to Savannah, Georgia and Amelia Island, Florida.

Also, enjoy some bonus audio of the complete tour of the Sorrel-Weed House, reportedly the most haunted house in America*. Listen, if you dare!

Show Notes: Sitting on the beach in Florida with my wife, testing a makeshift windscreen for my Zoom recorder; relaxing with a cigar on the porch of either the oldest hotel in Florida or America (the literature on the Florida House Inn is contradictory) after a very stressful plumbing nightmare with our hotel room; recalling my last trip to Amelia Island with my family in 1995, where I climbed off our second floor balcony to pet a cat, and my mother got us lost for four hours looking for a Denny’s; the 1996 summer Olympics and the amorphous, asexual mascot, Izzy; the stress of coming home after a long trip; relaxing at home with a cigar and whisky; recalling my trip to Savannah, Georgia and the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1994) that made it famous; Savannah is supposedly the most haunted town in the country; recalling our tour through the Sorrel-Weed House, supposedly the most haunted house in Savannah; my adventure riding a horse past the famous tree from Forrest Gump (1994); how movies can implant artificial memories of having been someplace before; visiting Fort Pulaski on Tybee Island; eating at the Old Pink House; good to be home.

*If you believe in that sort of thing.

  1. You know what would have been really cool? If, after searching for hours for the phantom Denny’s, your mom had inquired of some of the locals, who informed her that, yes indeed, there used to be a Denny’s on the island, but it had burned down over twenty years before!

    Still, the truth was pretty entertaining too. I enjoyed it!
