Enough about that Manson guy, let's take it easy on this episode! Tonight's episode was supposed to be a loving tribute to America's Horror Theme Park: Spooky World..but that did quite pan out so instead Eric Dwinnells and Brian Toney are hitting the road without a script to bring you the almost non-existent yet strangling intriguing story of Ponyhenge in Lincoln, Massachusetts. What is it? Toy ponies in a circle. Why is it? Good question!
We'll also travel to the haunted Longfellow's Wayside Inn of Sudbury, Massachusetts to learn about it's ghost, Jerusha! Her story is probably deserving of it's own episode, and maybe one day we'll get to it, but tonight you'll get the bare bones before we travel down the road to visit the famous schoolhouse that figures into the famous nursery rhyme, "Mary Had A Little Lamb". Oh yes, it's a true story...maybe. Eric and Brain learned way more than they ever wanted to know about this classic tail and they pass that knowledge on to you, Spookaroos!

Tonight Eric wraps up the story of the Manson Family by talking about their lives behind bars, what the Family members still out in the world are up to these days, and the deaths of Susan Atkins and Charles Manson.
In special bonus content, Eric talks with the cast that helped bring this story to life to hear their thoughts and feelings on the real people they portrayed.

This week, the Manson Family is finally put on trial for murder. The DA tries to "sell" the jury and the world on the Helter Skelter theory and Sandy and Squeaky go to extreme lengths to try and influences legal council and witnesses. You'll also learn about the Honolulu Hamberger Caper that nearly cost one ex-family member her life. All this and more on this week's Spooky A S.
Much of the research for tonight's show was pulled from the book Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson by Jeff Guinn
