Descent of the Cullodens - Chapter 9 - Who Needs Money When We Got Feathers? ft. Triviality

Even this broken fountain sounds almost like mocking laughter.

Who is Michelle? What's in the room the weather vane pointed to? What's going on in this house? Our penultimate chapter sees a new set of Cullodens follow the trail our last guests left to the master bedroom of this spooky manor. 

We're joined this episode by Neal, Matt, and Jeff from the Triviality Podcast. Triviality is one of Dani's favourite podcasts, and is full of great trivia and a lot of fun, so go and give it a listen!

Descent of the Cullodens - Chapter 8 - I want to go on the yard work simulator! ft. The Infinite Escape Room

Groundskeeper Willie? No, I'm his cousin, Gravedigger Billy.

With the revelation of last chapter, Bill the historian is eager to find out the last secrets these "ghosts" are hiding. With renewed zeal and two new Cullodens, it's time to enter the manor and get to the bottom of this.

Our Cullodens enter the manor, only to quickly exit again and find themselves in the garden outside. With a gravelly ghost, some hated apples, and some rather dangerous plant life, these puzzle solvers will have their hands full.

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.
