    E222 The Wine Kill Switch and the Paranormal Vagina Monologues

    E222 The Wine Kill Switch and the Paranormal Vagina Monologues

    It's Em's lucky episode 222 and the rumors are true... Christine is with demon! We're dishing all the details on reactions and reliving the wild pregnancy genius that is The Maltese Bagans (created because a certain famed demon hunter yet again did not respond to Christine's pleas). Then Em takes on a story just dripping in ectoplasm from every orifice, the story of medium Eva Carrière (NOT to be confused with our Eva, for reasons that will soon become clear). Afterward, Christine takes us to New South Whales, Australia to cover the brutal and heartbreaking case of the Lin family murders and a daughter so incredible we can't send her enough love and light. We also debate the use of planchettes as teething toys... and that's why we drink!

    E221 Family Nuts and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Backrooms

    E221 Family Nuts and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Backrooms

    You asked, Em covered the wrong story, and then we finally delivered... this week on episode 221 Em is officially covering the topic so many of you asked for: the Backrooms Theory. And, wow, is it creepy! From mobile mannequins to death sheep to the currency of boiled almond water, you won't want to miss this wild ride. Then Chrisitne covers a story we can't believe we hadn't heard before: Abraham Shakespeare and his tragic murder over lottery money by Dee Dee Moore. And don't forget to check out the link below to an announcement so big only one man could do it justice, but for legal purposes may or may not have actually been involved... and that's why we (don't) drink!

    We're back with some traditional (and extremely creepy) listener ghost stories this month, boozers and shakers! Tune in to Listener Stories: Vol. 55 for a terrifying paranormal tunnel, some wild symptoms of exorcisms and to top it all off a ghost that's just super disappointed in you, potentially for playing hoop and stick. Christine also shares a terrifying tale of her own involving lightning and a ghost that traveled with her to a condo... and that's why we drink!

    E220 Astrophysics Improv and the Owl Queen

    E220 Astrophysics Improv and the Owl Queen

    Did you want to learn science from someone who just learned it yesterday? Well, welcome to episode 220 in which we do our best to understand multiverses, black holes and spaghettification (which we promise is a real term) all because Em researched the wrong topic. But as space lovers we were enthralled with the Back Door Theory, because honestly the idea of being torn apart atom by atom is just as scary as any cryptid. Em promises to bring you the Back Rooms Theory (also not the Back Woods Theory) next week. Then Christine pays homage to early pandemic binge watching trends with the story of Joe Exotic, his escalating rivalry with fellow big cat lover Carole Baskin and a murder-for-hire ploy that's only the tip of this chaotic iceberg. Christine also gets to practice her dramatic lyric reading skills... and that's why we drink!

    E219 A Paper Mâché Nose Doll and Mothman's Grandchildren

    E219 A Paper Mâché Nose Doll and Mothman's Grandchildren

    Get ready because episode 219 is a chatty one! What is a paper mâché nose doll? Who are mothman's grandchildren? We've got wild speculation on both this week and two fascinating topics: First Em takes us back into old school medium territory with the story of Helen Duncan aka Hellish Nell aka Scotland's Last Witch. It involves way more cheesecloth than you think. Then Christine covers the mysterious case of the Somerton Man aka the Tamam Shud case, which involves more secret pockets and ear measuring than you might think. We also tackle a question we know you've been anxiously waiting for us to answer: What exactly is British Vampire Condition? ...and that's why we drink!

    E218 A Skeleton's Waiting Room and Christine's New Screen Name

    E218 A Skeleton's Waiting Room and Christine's New Screen Name

    Is that the voice of the wise owl in the woods? Is it the ghost of a grandma who wants to cremate her cares? Or is it Chrisitne in her old elementary school play costume trying to infiltrate a secret society? This week on episode 218, Em takes us deep into the Bohemian Grove, an exclusive club and "summer camp for presidents" with some wild allegations attached to it. Then Christine closes out her first two-parter with the conclusion of her story on Richard Ramirez, the "second-hand" nightstalker and true terror of a serial killer. We also contemplate some gossip we have to bleep out and Satan's divine intervention... and that's why we drink! 

    An enormous thank you and sincerest apologies to Talk Murder With Me by Natalie DeGroot. We unintentionally used portions of her article on the murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind (in episode 214) without giving proper credit and we wholeheartedly want to rectify that. Please check out her article, "The Murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind" here and Talk Murder With Me here, both fantastic true crime resources.
