Show Notes & Summary:

We conclude our #HalloweenInJuly event on The Monster Guys Podcast – thanks for joining us!

Sponsored by: YOU! The Listener. Thank you for listening each week and for being a part of our community. It really means the world to us that you choose to hang out with us each week, and you, truly, are the reason we do what we do!

 

 

The Spirit Veil, or more specifically the “thinning of the veil”, also known as “the witching hour” (and many other terms) or the time when the barrier, or border, between the physical world and the world of spirit merge, or becomes thin; the time when the dead can, and do as many believe, walk among us.

We talk about this “veil” or “border” in depth, more Halloween customs, traditions, and history from around the world, and with three very special guests: Richard Martin (@TheFearMerchant, http://www.thefearmerchant.com), Icy Sedgwick (@IcySedgwick, http://www.icysedgwick.com), and Matthew Meyer (@matthewmeyerart, http://www.yokai.com).

Remember, there are 3 ways to enter for one of our two giveaway prize boxes this month:
