    E252 B-List Ghosts and French Diamond Thief Girlboss Energy

    Meet us at the floating ghost beer, because it's episode 252 and we're still at the haunted bar! Em finishes their two-part series on the Glen Tavern Inn and the Phillip Experiment that was done there to create a fake (or psychically real?) ghost. Then Eva takes us on a wild heist with French Adventuress Jeanne de Valois-Saint-Rémy aka self proclaimed Comtesse de La Motte, and the Affair of the Diamond Necklace she masterminded and inadvertently helped kick start the French Revolution. Join us for the hottest tea of the week and our very bad French accents... and that's why we drink!

    Christmastime is here! Join Em wrapped in Christmas lights and Allison for some spiked hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps and wilted whipped cream! We cover all things holiday from haunted snow globes to potentially sitting on the lap of a murderous mall Santa. We also have one of five of Em's menches on benches and some funky fresh ice cubes... and that's why we drink!

    E251 Mercury in the Microwave and a Ghost's Attic Speakeasy

    It's episode 251 and we've got our carb enhancing oil ready! Em starts the first in their two part series on the hauntings of the Glen Tavern Inn of Santa Paula, California. Then Eva takes us to a wealthy suburb of Sacramento for the wildly traumatic case of Susan Hamlin and a fabricated satanic cult. Also, be sure to take your mad scientist themed Halloween light switch covers out of your passenger side doors otherwise they might terrify you on a casual morning drive... and that's why we drink!

    Huge shout out again to Ellen Tremiti for her stellar research and notes! You can find Ellen @etphoneh on socials as well as her latest short story in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine.

    E250 An Engineer of Good Times and Witches on Speed Dial

    This week we're going rogue to robe and hosting bread candle seances, folks! It's Eva's second episode and we're talking paranormal, true crime and AAAHH!!! Real Monsters as humans. First Em pays homage to our 250th episode with a little numerology, then tells the oldest ghost tale they could find aka the Glenluce Devil. Then Eva covers the wild case of the Pillow Pyro. And did we meet great grandpappy Gilbert Bagelbites this week?? If we did, that's certainly why we drink!

    E249 The Devil's Timeshare and Sleepwalking Mouths

    Welcome, Leona! It's Christine's parental leave, so we're inviting people close to her on the show to guest host until she's back. This week we welcome Inspector Gross... we mean Eva! Em covers the Haunting of Elizabeth Knapp, a wild tale of potential possession and witchcraft only 20 years before the Salem Witch Trials. Then Eva decides to extend Halloween with the Trick or Treat murder, also known as the "bizarre lesbian murder scandal that rocked 1950s LA". We also may be working on a demonic sleep app... and that's why we drink!

    E248 Paranormal Preschool Gossip and June's Podcast Calendar Models

    Does labor feel like being shot in the stomach? Tune in to Christine's last episode before Leona's arrival!! Em finishes their series on the Perron Family of the real life events behind the Conjuring movie. Then, big trigger warning, because Christine covers a German serial killer so gruesome we're not really sure what to do with ourselves, so Em tries to take the slightest bit of solace in listening to Christine speak German... and that's why we drink!

Fab podcast

Love love love!

Love love love you guys. Your delivery, your voices and the bond you two obviously have comes through so well. Your stories are informative and funny, but totally respectful. I also feel a little weird, (but not too weird) that I’m so rooting so hard for Christine’s baby to turn. 😂
Keep ‘em coming, I literally cannot wait each time for an episode to drop and Em, I gotta say, you are HOT 😁
