Ghosts of TaosDec 27, 2020
Take charge of your space if you think you're being bothered by ghosts. Here's how.
The Pumpkin Heads
We know that ghosts are the lingering spirits of those who have been alive as humans, but what about those entities that have never held human form? What about all the prayers and observances of energies that preceded humans on the face of the earth, especially here in a place where farm spirits and river spirits roam the countryside?
Here's a look at just one of these non-human entities and the stories that surround them: The Pumpkin Heads
The Taos Tunnels
Underneath the Historic District of Taos there is a network of tunnels that are rumored to stretch out in all directions, and some say the tunnels might go all the way to Taos Pueblo. Hear about the origins of the Taos Tunnels and how energies and forces that are more comfortable traveling underground use the network, freely.

She Who Weeps
This episode is about the legend of La Llorona and her tale of sorrow and woe. No one knows when the legend began or where it came from though the tales vary from source to source. They say just about anyplace where there are rivers and humans, the story of the doomed mother who drowned her two children is commonly told.

Taos has its share of the famous – both dead and living. Kit Carson Memorial Park is a burial ground steeped with history and mystery. In this episode we explore the history and play an interview with Dr. Kathy Cordova of El Prado New Mexico as she talks about what she found out about those three graves over by the Dragoon Lane entrance of the Kit Carson Memorial State Park while she was a Cultural Reporter for the Smithsonian Institute.
Haunted Hotels and Inn in the Historic District of Taos. Here are a couple of stories about our more active properties. So often I'll get the question, "what's the most haunted hotel in town?" and I would be hard-pressed to have a concise answer because so many of the hotels have a reputation of one degree or another. The center of town is a good pick, but other places, quaint little B&Bs have had their share of stories. Here are just a few.
EVPs — What are they saying?
Electronic Voice Phenomena is one of the more popular techniques for paranormal investigations. In Season 1 Episode 2 of Ghosts of Taos, we'll be talking about an investigation at the Mabel Dodge Luhan house where I was lucky enough to be allowed to leave a running digital recorder on Mabel's dresser in her bedroom. We managed to pick up several EVPs in the room. Listen to them in this podcast!
