Show Notes

Hey, friend,

Thank you for joining me for Running Scared with Coach Christine.

If you are a runner and enjoy a spooky tale or a  true crime enthusiast, you have found your corner of the internet!

Today marks the first day of Fall and that means it is FINALLY socially acceptable for me to start decorating for the best holiday of the year - Halloween. Let's celebrate with a spooky tale conversation with master storyteller, anthropologist, and Chief Occult Researcher, Tadd McDivitt. 

Tadd McDivitt leads tour groups through the streets and alleyways of Asheville. He shares the dark and sometimes humorous stories of the city, and how history, culture and rituals weave together into imaginative folklore.

Tadd works as a guide for Haunted Asheville, which offers two walking tours — one supernatural tour and one ghost tour — to historic sites in Asheville. 

In this episode, Tadd shares a couple of his favorite "haunts" in Asheville and discusses the paranormal and mysticism of Asheville, the Smokies, and the interesting cultural diversity and beliefs within the South and North Carolina.
