In this episode we get to spend time with Kyl Cobb, someone who is much more than a ghost hunter. Kyl has an extensive background in research, language, history and exploration. He is very much a modern day Indiana Jones. Whether exploring the remains of Tanis in Egypt or getting lost in the Amazon jungle, his exploits border on the extraordinary. Now throw in his passion for ghost hunting and assisting in exorcisms and you are only just scratching the surface of who Kyl Cobb is.

The Wilder Ride

Every Halloween, we get to play on the radio, from 9PM until midnight. We love chatting about how it has evolved over our lives. We discuss our earliest memories, worst candy to get, movies we re-watch and the scenes that still creep us out today. We also chat about "haunted" places we'd love to visit and what we would love to dress-up as if money were no object. In the midst of all the fun, the three of us had a chance to interview Kyl Cobb, an actual ghost hunter who has also participated in exorcisms.

Hedley decides Lili is onto something. He is going to raise an army of the worst dregs the West has ever seen. He asks Taggart to take down a list. He wants: rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, half-wits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists. Taggart finally finds a paper and pencil and asks, "Could you repeat that?"

Our guests today are Tom Taylor and Pete Mummert. Tom Taylor is busier than he ever intended to be as co–host of The Indiana Jones Minute, Caddyshack Minute, The Blues Brothers Minute and ABCDEVO podcasts. If that weren’t enough, he has also written a young (not-Frankenstein) adult novel, In Memory of Todd Woods.

Pete Mummert is a co-host of the Indiana Jones Minute podcast, a show that the AV Club once hailed as “not nearly as tedious as a thing like this could potentially be.” He lives with his wife, two cats and a monstrous creature that he animated during an electrical storm last year.
