LA's creepiest haunts What could possibly be more terrifying than this election season? Well, nothing. But today, we’ll attempt to top the freak show that is American politics in honor of Halloween. Los Angeles is chock full of creepy old buildings with bloody pasts. Places like the Cecil Hotel Downtown and the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
Ghostland Haunted spaces have become a tourism bonanza, with ghost hunters and thrill-seekers traveling the world to wander through supposedly haunted houses, hotels, prisons and factories. But what are the ingredients of a building that feels spooky, and what do these stories tell us about our own cultural attitudes? Colin Dickey explores all this in his new book Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places .
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
