Episode 32 - Rose Mackenberg

Episode 32 introduces enthusiastic ghost-buster Rose Mackenberg! Sometimes called “Harry Houdini’s Girl Detective,” Rose was dedicated to debunking psychics who scammed vulnerable and grieving Americans recovering from the tragedies of World War I and the Spanish Flu of 1918. She started out as a stenographer and private investigator, joining forces with famed magician Houdini to crusade against fraud and psychic swindlers. 

Rose is conjured up from the stage at KGB Bar’s Red Room in New York, by presenters Nicole Saraniero and Dana Lewis.

The talk was recorded live by Christopher Neil at a 2019 edition of NYC DLS, and hosted and curated by Molly O’Laughlin Kemper, with support from Nicolas Kemper and Lori Schwarz, general manager of the KGB Bar's Red Room, where the event was held.
