It's a tale as old as crime... see what we did there? In the late 1800's, Lizzie Borden was accused of brutally murdering her father and stepmother with an axe, leaving a bloody massacre behind. Many believe she was the obvious culprit in this crime... but others think she was completely innocent. You be the judge. Buckle up, Buckaroos.
Lizzie Borden named herself after an ax murderer when she was a kid growing up in Detroit. In the 1980s she gained a reputation as a radical feminist filmmaker. Born in Flames is about an underground women’s army. Working Girls takes place in a brothel and tells the story of middle class sex workers. Then Borden went to Hollywood to make a film for Harvey Weinstein that turned out to be a disaster. Now, Borden’s early movies are making a comeback. A restored version of Working Girls was recently re-released in theaters across the country. “Now What?” is produced with the help of Steve Zimmer, Fei Lu and Alex Wolfe. Audio production is by Nick Ciavatta

72: US Ghost Adventures and the Lizzie Borden House & Museum Acquisition
Earlier this year you may have heard how US Ghost Adventures bought the Lizzie Borden House & Museum. Last year we had the pleasure of speaking with Josef Kruger, a project manager for USGA, about some fun things the company was doing, including Ghost Flix, Livestream tours (when the pandemic was still keeping most people at home), and their haunted Lily doll. Well, Josef was gracious enough to hook us up with their communications director, Azure Hall, to talk about the Lizzie Borden House acquisition. Azure shared a little about what sort of things they have planned for the property. Which, spoiler, yes! They do still plan to operate it as a B&B! They're also looking to expand the ghost tours and perhaps even have a room dedicated to a permanent live stream. She also shared details about the Lizzie Borden giveaway they're running and how people can enter to win a 2-night stay at the property. Of course, we traded a couple of ghost stories about haunted hotels. Can't talk about spooky stays without doing that, right? And we talked about its true crime appeal as well. Mostly it was a pleasant chat about an exciting time in the Lizzie Borden House & Museum's history as it transitions to a new owner. Guest Info Visit lizzie-borden.com and usghostadventures.com.
