Episode 5: Suicide Brides: Fact vs. Fiction
This episode takes a close look at the fact vs. fiction behind Austin's treasured gothic ghost story. The most reliable book I reference is The Grand Dame of Austin: A History of The Driskill Hotel by Monte Akers. You can purchase this book at BookPeople, in Austin, or through the Austin History Center Association. It is well researched and has a bit of spunk throughout the book.
Here is a photo I took of the lobby in the Driskill Hotel so that you can get an idea of it's southern grandure and understand how this setting is perfect for a good ghost story.
