Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week, Syd & Jess are here to tell you the incredibly creepy history of an island off the coast of Italy, right outside of Venice, which has been used for some VERY sinister medical purposes. What began as an isolation site for victims of the Bubonic Plague and ended up as the site of a psychiatric hospital, this place is FULL of reasons to be haunted and spooky. Give this episode a listen, and decide for yourself if Poveglia is as haunted as the locals say, or just the site of some serious medical tragedies.
