Christmas. A time for presents, mulled wine and family arguments. But what’s happened to the Christmas ghost story? Last time we checked it was all a bit Victorian. Join Rachel Fairburn (All Killa No Filla podcast) and her special guests as they try and revive the ghost story tradition. There won’t be a stuffy academic or top hat in sight. (Can’t promise that.)
