What kind of connections would a singing comedy duo have to a haunted house? More than you might think! This week the ScareHouse Podcast talks to Josh Verbanets and Gab Bonesso, two Pittsburgh-based writers, performers, educators, and public personalities.

Their works have entertained and informed audiences of all ages on both a regional and national scale. Together, Josh and Gab have formed an unforgettable high-energy musical-comedy duo with a focus on an anti-bullying message.

Josh & Gab have taken their award-winning programs to over 200 schools, camps, and community venues across Pennsylvania and its surrounding states. The duo has been featured on WQED television and in national press for their work, received both "Best In The Burgh" and "40 Under 40" awards from Pittsburgh Magazine, gained heavy airplay from WXPN Kids Corner radio, and recently partnered The Pittsburgh Childrens Museum as official programmers. They look forward to bringing their groundbreaking interactive programming to your school or community location in 2014, working above all to celebrate creativity and togetherness in participants.
