The journey through the manor continues in Escape This Podcast: Descent of the Cullodens! This is chapter 7 of 10 as new guests join us and continue the quest into the growing mystery of Culloden Manor.

Bill likes to talk about things getting creepy, but this episode really gets creepy. Our two new Cullodens enter the scariest room in the manor... the nursery. Be prepared for dolls, chalk, colours, and a choo-choo train. Oh, and a very spooky ghost!

Descent of the Cullodens - Chapter 6 - How Many Ghost Butlers Will There Be? ft. Milo Manheim and Owen Halpert

One at first, but he'll train others.

The journey through the manor continues in Escape This Podcast: Descent of the Cullodens! This is chapter 6 of 10 as new guests join us and continue the quest into the growing mystery of Culloden Manor.

You've read mystery novels. You understand the intricacies of old manor houses. If there's one universal truth, it's that the butler did it! So our new Cullodens follow that logic all the way to the chambers of the chamberlain. How will they fare as they deal with puzzles, campanology, botany, and an old washing machine.

The journey through the manor continues in Escape This Podcast: Descent of the Cullodens! This is chapter 5 of 10 as new guests join us and continue the quest into the growing mystery of Culloden Manor.

When you discover that you're an heir for what is potentially a vast fortune, you don't need to worry yourself with ghosts, spirits, or babbling historians who try to scare you.
