    It's episode 379 and we're experiencing technical difficulties and making big life announcements (Christine even screamed so loud she hurt her missing tooth)! Tune in to our intro for some surprise info and updates. Then we're digging into our audio vaults to share one of our earliest live shows: Houston, Texas in 2019! Em accidentally covers two stories involving the words "spaghetti" in the Spaghetti Warehouse (actually in Texas) and the Old Spaghetti Factory (not actually in Texas). Then Christine covers the wild case of Ana Trujillo, the Stiletto Killer. We're funny but not stupid... and that's why we drink!

    Listener Stories: Vol. 91

    YouTube! We're so sorry, yet again, about the weird glitch-lag. We promise we're working on fixing these mysterious lags but in the meantime the listener stories show must go on, even if the May stories aren't as important as our birthday month stories... oops, did we say that out loud?! Tune in this month for some fun, mystery themed stories including a current Starbucks arrest, a house haunted by a full body apparition of a burnt man and even a spooky little haunting at one of our live shows. We also reveal the name of our next brand new tour and share some medical intuition... and that's why we drink!

Binge listen

Came this way from Sinisterhood who are my original ride or die. Love Em and Christine’s banter and openness in talking about their mental health and chronic illnesses

Unnecessary Waffle

I lasted 20 minutes into Episode 1 before unsubscribing. Far too much chat about nothing before getting into the story and even when we got there, the speakers didn’t hold my attention due to the unnecessary amount of waffle. Annoying vocal fry and silly giggling from the hosts which makes the episode sound unprepared and unprofessional. Unsubscribed and unfollowed.

Absolute hunz

Christine, Em, I love the show so much, it’s taken over my life (thanks ADHD). I’ve binged 2017-2021 in the last 3 weeks and can’t stop.

They tell their stories so well, always so interesting and well researched. True crime has my heart but Em holds a special place too with the paranormal.
