With October right around the corner, The Geek Speak Show Rewinds start to get spooky!

First, parapsychologist, television and radio host, author, and professional chocolatier Loyd Auerbach was on the 2013 Halloween episode and is up first on this week's Rewind. Loyd talks about how he got into the paranormal, why today's "ghost hunter" shows don't do it right, and being a professional chocolatier. Jedi Knight Rac and Angel Nevarez (then-producer of The Geek Speak Show) join in on this interview. To wrap up this scary Rewind, Angel Nevarez and Henry San Miguel talk to Brannon Smith, Trap Inventor for The Tennessee Wraith Chasers, on the week before Ghost Asylum premiered on Destination America. This is from a 2015 interview.

The Geek Speak Show is on a break for the rest of September. New episodes return in October.

On the last new episode for September, Henry welcomes back director Michael Valentine and they talk about The Geek Speak Show screening of Comix: Beyond The Comic Book Pages in October.
