    E304 Hand Paws and Wisconsinners

    In episode 304, Mommy comes back to get you... Em passes on a family tradition in the form of an out of tune song from traveling moms. Then they bring us the story of a Wisconsin werewolf, the Beast of Bray Road, the absolute last dog you want to cuddle. Then Christine brings us the lukewarm, we mean cold case of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley, who's murderer was pretty obvious to everyone except the people set to solve it. Also, keep an eye out for Christine who just might come to find you in your dreams... and that's why we drink!

    It’s episode 302 and Christine has another ghost story she’s been waiting to tell Em on the podcast!

We’ve been performing it for a 10th of our lives! …and that’s why we drink!

    E300 Bougie Ghost Hunting and Wafts of Fog Friends

    It’s here, it’s happening, it’s our 300th! We can’t believe we’ve been here for 300 years, we mean episodes. We wanted to do something special to celebrate and since we’ve covered the Winchester Mystery House twice, once at the beginning of the podcast and once for the 200th episode, we thought, why not go record there in person this time! So today we’re coming to ya from Sarah Winchester’s carriage house and talking all things ghost and paranormal equipment. First Em gives us a rundown on how each item works and then Christine dives into the recesses of our gmail to find listener stories and creepy EVPs from times you’ve used each item Em talks about. Be sure to check out our incredible tour of the Winchester Mystery House (jump scares and all) on Patreon. And as we always say, all roads lead to Boo Buddy, but that’s for another day… and that’s why we drink!

Love this show!

Em and Christine are my two best friends I’ve never met lol love the mix of paranormal and true crime. I’m late to the party so I get to binge this all day while I work. I dread the day I catch up 🙂

Ok

Maybe OK for millennials, but these girls are just too annoying for anyone over 30. Love the stories - hate all the silliness of what sounds like 2 teenagers at a slumber party.
