Due to technical issues in the Geek Speak studio, the scheduled guests for the Halloween episode weren’t able to appear. That didn’t stop Henry from replaying an interview with paranormal investigator Jeff Dwyer and also a replay from a couple of years ago from the then Geek Speak on air crew and their personal paranormal experiences. Plus, a Halloween-themed pick for the Book Club
