Presented by Kimberly Gray & Crysta K. Coburn

There are ghosts all over Chicago. From Resurrection Cemetery to the Biograph theater, the Second City has its fair share of spirits. Join the hosts of the Haunted Mitten Podcast as they take a break from discovering the spooky in Michigan to talk about all the weird and haunted places that dot this spectacular city.

Kay Gray has been researching the paranormal for over fifteen years. Together with Crysta K Coburn, she hosts the Haunted Mitten Podcast, going into its fifth season this Fall. She has been published in two Steampunk anthologies, The Queen of Clocks and Other Steampunk Tales, and Fairytales Punk’d. She has always had a love of Chicago, and can’t believe she gets to talk about it professionally! Kay can be found online @kgraywrites on most platforms.


Crysta K. Coburn has been writing award-winning stories for most of her life. Her first short story was published at the age of sixteen after winning runner-up in a local writing contest.
