Although TV personality, Heull Howser, had no involvement in the local paranormal community (as far as we know), his influence on GHOULA was undeniable.

The ideals behind GHOULA’s mission to explore different corners of Los Angeles, celebrate the history and folklore of local establishments, and get the personal stories of individuals can be directly traced to the KCET programs “California’s Gold,” “Visiting,” and “Videolog.”

Those shows had a tremendous impact on GHOULA co-founder, Richard Carradine, and as a result, the concept of observing and documenting this part Southern Californian life (and/or after-life) became a big part of what GHOULA would become.

An underlying theme of Huell Howser’s shows seems to be that as much as you think you know your city (or state), there is always more to learn, discover and experience. For this reason, Huell’s recent retirement and death are shocking and feel sudden, as if there was still more work to be done, and even more territory to cover.

GHOULA, in its own small way, will honor Huell by doing our part to continue to share our local discoveries with others, and hope that others will do the same.
