Every Hallows Eve, spirits tend to talk to the living, from hauntings to sheer intoxication. And if whiskey's your spirit of choice, then today's surprise Halloween episode of MUNCHIES: The Podcast is here for you.

Colin Spoelman is Master Distiller at Kings County Distillery, the oldest distillery in New York City since Prohibition, and an expert on the history of spirits—both the liquid and spectral. In honor of Halloween, Colin takes us to Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery to meet some permanent residents and explore the myths and legends of famous distillers buried just a few feet below our own.

So tune into the podcast, subscribe on iTunes if you can dig it, and tell your friends to do the same. And check back next week for a brand new episode, because we're taking you on a ride through Copenhagen with the world's most expensive milk man to The Farm of Ideas.
