CoastLine: Cape Fear Unearthed Seeks To Separate Local Lore From Historical Fact

Katelyn Freund / WHQR
Hunter Ingram of the StarNews launched the new podcast series Cape Fear Unearthed on July 26, 2018. The first season lasts 10 weeks with a new episode each Thursday.

The stories of Wilmington -- from mythical tales surrounding Jacob’s Run, that underground passageway in  Wilmington, to the legend of the woman buried sitting in a barrel of booze to the heroism of Abraham Galloway -- which are fact and which are fiction? 

One local reporter has set out to find the truth – and he’s created a podcast to tell these stories.  In the first season of Cape Fear Unearthed, Hunter Ingram of the StarNews explores whether history can be trusted.    We hear about some of these macabre, fascinating, inspiring stories on this edition of CoastLine.
