Q&A Hole: Do You Believe in Ghosts?

If not, do you think that everyone who says they’ve seen one is a liar?

In this episode of Q&A Hole, we set out to offer a definitive answer on the existence of ghosts.

We asked five musicians – Har Mar Superstar, Peelander Z's Kengo Hioki, Alesia Lani, Rod Melancon, and Otis Wilkins – this important question: “Do you believe in ghosts? If so, why? If not, do you think that everyone who says they’ve seen one is a liar?”

The resulting responses were a mix of personal ghost encounters, strangely sexual experiences with spirits, and semi-coherent screaming. So we still don’t know if ghosts exist, but the clip proved nonetheless hilarious.

Q&A Hole is edited by John Anderson, produced by Tamar Price, and thought up by myself, music and cannabis reporter Kevin Curtin. Jana Birchum and Jacob Schmidt recorded the audio, and the theme song is by Kevin Curtin, Jonas Wilson, and Timothy Abdnour.
