Ghost Magnet with Bridget Marquardt
Bridget Goes To Hollyweird!

Bridget Goes To Hollyweird!

December 29, 2019

Welcome to the final Ghost Magnet of 2019 and — oh my — this is a good one! Join Bridget and her new BFFs Tammie and Brice as they talk about the spooky things they have in common! From New Orleans and the Myrtles Plantation, to California and David Oman’s House, The Glen Tavern Inn, The Chaplin Studios and more. THEN be on the lookout for the CRAZY video we shot in our post-podcast investigation! 

Tammie Merheb-Chavez is a New Orleans native who moved to Los Angeles in 2009. She’s a full-time costume designer for film, tv and theater and part-time paranormal investigator with a coffee addiction living happily with her hubby here in El Lay. Her introduction to the paranormal started at a very young age while living around the legends and lores that surrounded her home city, New Orleans. It soon evolved more while working in a few haunted theaters and movie sets. When she is not working you might find her investigating haunted places,  obsessing over pet-finder, binge-watching paranormal shows and scaring Brice with creepy stories.

Brice Mitchell Williams was raised in various states around the Midwest and moved to Los Angeles in 2011. He was raised in a conservative, Christian community and as such, never really believed in any kind of paranormal activity. However, as he grew up, several inexplicable life experiences have left him more open to the world as we know it. Whether the paranormal can be attributed to Demons, Ghosts, Spirits, Energy, or some other phenomena, he remains optimistically skeptical and loves being proven wrong and discovering new perspectives in this crazy genre! When he isn’t podcasting, he is most likely Instragram-ing photos of his dog, drinking illegal amounts of coffee, or doing CrossFit, poorly.

Dean Haglund’s Real Life X-Files

Dean Haglund’s Real Life X-Files

December 9, 2019

For fans of The X-Files do we have a treat for you! Meet Dean Haglund, actor, comedian, inventor AND a downtown Los Angeles theater district aficionado! Prior to the show Dean took us on one of his signature tours from VERY SCARY ghost of the Hotel Cecil, The Bradbury, the Hotel Alexandria and many of DTLA’s varied theaters. In this episode Dean takes us on a deep dive of the creepy Los Angeles.

Dean fell in love with the renaissance happening in DTLA. He has given tours for the Historic Theater Association and the LA Conservancy. He has lead tours highlighting Hollywood history, silent film locations and vaudeville legend & lore!  He spent the last few fears between LA and Australia, but now he’s shutting between Michigan and his LA lair. 

In this episode we are recording from the historic Eastern Columbia Building, also known as the Eastern Columbia Lofts, it is a thirteen story Art Deco building. The Eastern Columbia Building is built of steel-reinforced concrete and clad in glossy turquoise terra cotta trimmed with deep blue and gold trim. The façade is decorated with a wealth of motifs—sunburst patterns, geometric shapes, zigzags, chevrons and stylized animal and plant forms. The building is capped with a four-sided clock tower emblazoned with the name "Eastern" in neon. When driving in or near downtown LA the building can’t be missed!  It opened on September 12, 1930 after just nine months of construction. It was built at a cost of $1.25 million as the new headquarters and 39th store for the Eastern-Columbia Department Store. 

The building is widely considered the greatest surviving example of Art Deco architecture in the city. In 1985, it was listed as a historical cultural monument.  In 2006, the building was renovated into 147 condos and it is said the Johnny Depp owns 5 penthouses! But…is it haunted???

Ghost Hunter’s Brandon Alvis & The Legendary Glen Tavern Inn

Ghost Hunter’s Brandon Alvis & The Legendary Glen Tavern Inn

December 2, 2019

Bridget’s back from the Bermuda Triangle and ready for more! Join Bridget and Ghost Hunter’s tech master of Brandon Alvis as they explore explore The Glen Tavern Inn…The Stanley Hotel’s mini me. 

Brandon has always had interests and questions about the paranormal.  Over the years he has spoken at historical locations across the United States. Appearing in the New York Post, MTV News, Travel Channel, Discovery and Science Channel. After purchasing a modest camcorder in 2010, Brandon began to produce web content about historical events. Discovering his newly found passion, he wanted to expand his knowledge of the film industry. You have seen him on Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, The Unexplained Files and Haunted Discoveries.

Starting with a few friends using standard tools and procedures, he realized the many mistakes "commonly found" when investigating the paranormal. This motivated him to propagate a team specializing in many fields and to develop new methods not only reliable but convincing, introducing the "scientific approach" and naming this team: "American Paranormal Research Association" aka A.P.R.A. This new approach along with his leadership and entrepreneurial skills has propelled A.P.R.A., becoming a highly recognized name. His hard work, dedication and passion to this science are greatly respected, often allowing A.P.R.A. to investigate in areas normally closed-off to others. Pioneering fundraisers and special events, he along with his team, provide participants an insight into the paranormal wherein proceeds go to the preservation of the historical structure. His determination to find "cold hard facts, to prove or disprove" makes A.P.R.A. what it is today. 

Today we have a super fun episode, we are recording LIVE from the super cute and charming Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, Ca. But don’t let looks deceive you, this historic little inn has a history of paranormal activity and ghost stories! 

 

About The Glen Tavern Inn

It is a tutor/craftsman style hotel built in 1911.

During Prohibition, the Inn retained something of its Wild West origins as the third floor - at that time, an open space not yet built out into separate guestrooms - was utilized as a speakeasy, brothel and gambling parlor.[2] Many legends stem from this era, including tales of murdered prostitutes and shootouts between unruly gamblers. These stories, though mostly unconfirmed, persist with a life of their own as part of the hotel's rich lore.

In the 1930’s, the Glen Tavern Inn hosted such notables as Carole Lombard, John Wayne, Houdini and canine thespian, Rin Tin Tin, who boasted his own suite long before “pet-friendly” entered the hospitality lexicon.

It became dilapidated and rundown before it was rescued and renovated back to it’s original grandeur.

The Inns’ motto, is “Where the past comes to life”..and that seems to be a good motto, because the hotel has it’s share of stories! So much so that the Ventura Paranormal Society had its annual convention there and it has been featured on Ghost Adventures and Dead Files.
