Richard Carradine

Richard Carradine founded GHOULA, a group that celebrates Southern California’ s ghost lore and haunted history, in 2006. In the past decade, he has conducted ghostly walking tours, bus tours, house tours, subway tours, and hosted numerous ghost-themed events in unusual haunted places, from meet-ups in haunted bars to puppet shows in a haunted puppet theater. Recently, he collaborated with the Institute for Art and Olfaction to help create a series of perfumes based on the smells associated with local ghosts. The idea behind his spooky activities is always to have fun with our local history and get people to explore the far corners of L.A. County. Because of his expertise on regional ghost tales, his knowledge has been sought out by historical societies, television producers, and the press. Over the years, the L.A. Weekly has declared in their annual “Best of L.A.” issues that he is the “Best Host to Toast a Ghost,” as well as two other titles based on his events, including the “Best Ghostly Gatherings” and the “Best Wierdo Tours.” Additionally, he is the author of “The Park After Dark: The Original Unauthorized Guide to the Happiest (Haunted) Place on Earth” and “Spirits with Spirits: A Guide to the Haunted Bars of Los Angeles.”
