    135: Panic at the (Satanic) Disco

    135: Panic at the (Satanic) Disco

    This week we bring you a very special hand-picked, Fan-picked theme of Satanic Panic! It's catchy, it rhymes, but what's really behind the moral panic of the evolving eighties and into the nineties?

    Well that's what our Patreon member Patrick E. wanted to know, and boy are we glad, cause it's a wild ride! From the musical messages from the devil to the massive allegations of child abuse and wrongful convictions, it's a deeper dive than we ever imagined. Just how much harm came from it is equal parts shocking and hard to quantify.

    So grab your twenty-sided die and throw on the Black Album, it's time to dance with the devil! And if you want to pick a future episode topic, head on over to Patreon.com/castlesandcryptids to check out our 3 tiers and dozens of bonus episodes and videos!

    This one's for you Pat!

Kelsey cover's a famous Serial Killer who has been compared to Jack the Ripper. Don't worry she doesn't get into all the grisly details this time, there were sadly too many victims to cover.

    Alanna lightens the mood with a very wild and entertaining tale of a prank that goes beyond anything you may have heard before. Listen to find out how 2 men's bet effected a whole town.

    We hope you enjoy and until next time keep it cryptic!

    132: Morbid Medical Mysteries

    132: Morbid Medical Mysteries

    After a brief bit of book talk, the gals put on their scrubs for some insane stories of mysterious medical mishaps. Which may be putting it too mildly...

    Kelsey kicks us off as usual, with a wild case of a Minnesota woman who defied doctors and all logic by surviving a sub-zero night spent outside. Having just barely survived our own polar vortex, ya darn tootin' this one shook us!

    Then Alanna leaves us with the strange story of Brazil's very own so called "Melting Man". Which got us asking ourselves if sometimes going to a big party isn't a life-saver? It's a thinker.

    133: Akon: My Alien Lover

    133: Akon: My Alien Lover

    You guys, this episode is right out of this world(and may sound vageuly liek a 90's talk show, we're aware!)!

    Originally planned as part of our ET episode 106: A close Encounter of The Canadian Kind, it was cut due to length. And by that I mean, damn can we (I mean me, who are we kidding) talk our asses off sometimes!

    So it has been in the Illuminaughty/ Patreon vaults until now, when alas we didn't get a new one out to you in time, we decided to release it.

    Apologies, friends, and hope this sneak peek behind the Patreon curtain can curtail your Castles and Cryptids Cravings for now!

    What's it about? Why Akon the alien and his earth lover Elizabeth of course! If you've ever wondered what the alien D is like, this is the episode for you! and also 'cause y'know extraterrestrial enlightenment and stuff. Someone has to know more than we do!

    Thanks for listening and catch you next week, keep it cryptic!
