"The Cantankerous Ghost" was fairly amuzing, but left little closure in the ending. Not one of my favorites.

This is a real enjoyable one to listen to when you just want a story. The ghost is hardly scary, and the plight of the women about to be tossed out on the street seems legit. I enjoyed it.

Oh man, I miss E.G. Good job on both actress’ parts portraying the elderly sisters.


"Ending left little closure?" you said? I thought the story was neatly wrapped up. Did you hear a different episode? Without giving away the ending, but still Spoiler, the film crew got what they wanted, a major blockbuster film, the sisters got their money, and Spoiler, a take of the profits, and the ghost fulfilled what he was looking for and went on to something better. What closure did you miss?


The first time I listened to the recording, it stopped in the middle of act 3. When I came back, I was able to listen to it all the way through. Liked the storyline. Will listen to it again in the future.
