Two actors known exclusively for their work in the horror genre step off script and into their own real-life thriller on their quest to decipher if Canada’s most ghostly places are truly haunted.

Yes, Luke Hutchie and Matthew Finlan are the ghostbusters in this “factual” (CBC never uses the “R” for reality word) series. Both have horror genre credits in their IMDb profiles, with Zack playing a killer gay vampire in the OUT tv series EZRA and Matthew in the Paramount+ feature, “Orphan: First Kill.”

For Ghosting, they travel to places where spirits have supposedly been sighted, including The Merrill House in Picton, Ont., and the McDonald Log Cabin in Allison, Ont. On each episode, they bring a special guest along on their quest to declare these notorious abodes, “Haunted or not.”

Along the way, podcast host Bill Brioux tells his own hair-raising tale of an overnight visit to a supposedly haunted hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.

Ghosting premieres Friday, January 26 on CBC with all eight episodes available that morning at 9am ET on CBC Gem.  To listen to this podcast episode, simply click on the white arrow in the blue circle above.
