School is full of students eager to learn, and teachers scared to face the man in the trench coat who has been seen in the library, gym, and halls for decades. Leslie Gray and John Schalcosky lead two days of tours explaining history and hauntings, and Ya Jagoff! podcast has teacher testimonies, some band member reactions, the famous tour guides and an aggravated comedian…John Knight.

01:29 Opening: Rachael reluctantly probes John about the eerie tour he took part in with Fubar, Leslie Gray, John Schalcosky and more than a dozen other ‘ghoul’ students inside and outside of the supposed haunted Arsenal Middle School in Lawrenceville.  John heard some groans and saw some warning words on his orb app and still completed the tour.  Rachael, not so much.

05:59 Leslie Gray, Steel City Medium discusses her special gift of clairvoyance and how she is both the life of any party, and depended on through law enforcement for helping solve high profile crime and missing persons cases.

#YaJagoffPodcast | Episode 91 | October 24, 2017

Oct 16, 2017

There was a podcast festival in downtown Butler, PA and we were part of it. Recorded at Reclamation Brewery on Main Street, our guests talked about the boon in breweries and why it’s not going to end any time soon. We talked about the importance of supporting farmers with Freedom Farms and, we’re pretty sure that you will be astounded with the attitude and drive of Aaron Watson. Thanks to Day Bracey of The Drinking Partners Podcast for inviting us to the party.

YaJagoff! Podcast - Show Notes: Episode Music: Molly Alphabet, “Lickin’ the Windows.” Molly Alphabet will be a part of a Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser at Jergel’s, Wednesday October 18th. Get tickets at the door.

Total Sports Enterprises will host this all star cast of athletes thanks to the Foundry this Saturday afternoon at the Mall at Robinson. Call 412 747-7703 or visit www.tseshop.com

01:07 Unlike most Pittsburghers, we crossed at least two bridges to get somewhere and drove to downtown Butler for this podcast. Part of it is because someone emailed an invite that included the phrase “free beer!”

02:32 Ben Smith, owner of Reclamation Brewery talks about the continued growth of local breweries AND did John show his ignorance by asking for a pale ale? Day Bracey, ½ of the Drinking Partners Podcast organized the Podcast Festival to dabble in beer and podcast tastes!

15:08 Cassandra Smiley of Freedom Farms stopped by to talk about all things farming. Farming ain’t just about dirt and seeds no more. Since the “Farm Kings” reality show, the King family has focused their efforts on helping all farmers raise the farming stakes.

28:25 Aaron Watson didn’t just sit around a wait for opportunities after his graduation from the University of Pittsburgh. He is making his own! Not only is he part of Pittsburgh’s Ultimate Disc League, Thunderbirds, but he’s running his own podcast, Going Deep, and prepping to hold a conference to celebrate local opportunities and personal development, the Going Deep Summit.
