In celebration of the 50th episode of "A Scott in the Dark", Scott looks back to the initial reason for doing the podcast and forward to the opportunities it has provided. The show includes a few clips from previous shows, including a 2018 interview with the late Robbi LePre after she was awarded her Lifetime Achievement award from the Haunted Attraction Association at the Transworld Halloween and Christmas Show. Scott also discusses his new book, "The 13 Commandments of Haunting" (edited and published by Philip Hernandez) which never would have come about had it not been for the podcast. Enjoy this milestone with Scott and all of the A.S.I.T.D. listeners!
