How Dan Akroyd’s Personal Fascination With the Paranormal Influenced Ghostbusters

Today I Found Out host Simon Whistler talks about how Dan Akroyd‘s personal fascination with the paranormal influenced the creation of Ghostbusters. In the episode he explains that Akroyd’s great-grandfather was a spiritualist who performed seances in his family’s home, and his father not only believed in ghosts, but wrote a book on the subject.

The great-grandson of a spiritualist who regularly conducted séances at the family home (where Aykroyd grew up and resides today), Dan Aykroyd cut his teeth on stories and personal experiences of the paranormal.
