The Heyde Center for the Arts, in partnership with Eau Claire Hometown Radio, announces the launch for its first ever limited podcast series “GHOSTED”. Created and hosted by local college students Semisi Faleta, Ada Packiewicz, and Evan Peterson, this creepy comedy podcast looks to explore the scary, unexplained, and downright weird stories found right in our own backyard of Wisconsin and Minnesota.
EPISODE #6 "A Freaky Deaky Finale Part II" (We Love You Franzia)
On part two of the final episode of GHOSTED, Semisi returns to his hometown of Milwaukee to find that something wicked has been brewing in Brew City. Sometimes a one night stand turns into you last night on Earth, as many in the lakeshore city learned in the summer of 1991. Don’t check the freezer, you never know what… or who you’ll find staring back at you in apartment 213. Semisi pulls open the door to discover the gruesomely grotesque evil that was Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, the Milwaukee Cannibal.
EPISODE #5 "A Freaky Deaky Finale Part 1" (We Love You French)
On part one of the final episode of GHOSTED, Ada tells a petrifyingly true story that still rings fresh in many of our minds. The story that would send shockwaves through a small, grip the nation in paranoia over the possessive powers of the internet, and inspire a controversial 2018 horror film. Something is hiding in the wilds of Waukesha, WI, and Ada uncovers it all in her terrifyingly true story of Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, the Children of Slenderman.
EPISODE #4 "Welcome, Mr. President"
On the fourth episode of GHOSTED, the team goes full ghosted! The duo investigate the spine tingling spirits of Stevens Point, WI and Brown County, MN as Ada takes a trip down Boy Scout Lane and Semisi uncovers the truth behind the vengeful ghost of little Annie Marie Twente. There will be bloodcurdling screaming, undead hikers, live burial, and a deep discussion on the hotness of Hugh Laurie. With surprise guest star the Ghost of US President Ronald Reagan, join the team on this hauntingly hilarious episode of GHOSTED!

EPISODE #3 "You Can't Hang with Patrick Swayze"
On Episode 3 of GHOSTED, things get dark as the team takes on their creepiest and most baffling stories yet! One family’s tragic discovery of an infant’s watery grave (Winona, MN) and a brutal series of unsolved campus murders that has been kept quiet for over 50 years now (Madison, WI). Ada and Semisi tell the terrifying real stories of the Winona Angel Baby and the Mad City Murders, all the while trying to summarize the plot of Dirty Dancing. Listen into all the mystery, murder, and theories in this sadistically shocking episode!

EPISODE #2 "Welcome to the Internet!"
On the second episode of GHOSTED, Semisi does a bit of investigating into an out of this world hit and run in the seriously average town of Warren, MN (Val Johnson Incident). Meanwhile in Whitewater, Ada discovers that something wicked is hiding in the water towers and dorm buildings of this college town (Whitewater Witches). Drug planes, hidden tunnel systems, and…the wonders of elderly bathtubs??? The GHOSTED team explores all of these topics and more in this wickedly weird episode!
EPISODE #1 "Polish Dog"
On the premiere episode of GHOSTED, Ada and Semisi dive into the strange disappearance of Samantha and Gianna Rucki and the terrifying legend of the Haunchyville Haunchies… but not before they discuss the life of amateur podcasting and the Polishness of your great grandpa’s dog. Tune in for a fantastically freaky first episode!
