    Clip Show: We're Not Dead Yet!

    Your eyes are not deceiving you, it's a Booze + Spirits Podcast! Almost. We have not yet returned to the recording booth, but that doesn't mean the show isn't on our minds, and we're flabbergasted to see that we're still acquiring new listeners for a show that hasn't put out new content for a dragonfly's age. So, to let you know that we haven't forgotten you all, here's another clip show of bits left from the editing bay floor, and like last time, it's been punctuated with the chaotic tones of a French post-punk band; this time, Ultrademon! (We amuse ourselves.) Hang tight, and we hope to see you with new, actual real episodes sometime in the near future!

    Ep. 29 - Six Gentiles Walk Into a Whale

    Ep. 29 - Six Gentiles Walk Into a Whale

    Better late than never, said the person who sucks at online analytics... 

    The part-time job known as Christmas is over, and we've finally had time to edit the episodes we recorded before Christmas. First up, in our salute to Hanukah, we talk vaguely about some Jewish spirts and demons in between bursts of spouting off pointless facts like the big-headed autistic kid from Jerry Maguire. Cait has a haunted synagogue, Nick compares a historical possession tale to teachings of the Talmud, and Mel has new uses for cat afterbirth. It's an episode less offensive than you would have thought, but more offensive than you would have hoped.

    Ep. 28 - Hominid Battle Royale

    Ep. 28 - Hominid Battle Royale

    It's Thanksgiving here at The Booze + Spirits Podcast, and we celebrate it like most Americans--by being painfully unaware of the plight of Native Americans and having a big blow-out fight with family members.  After a few tales of Native American lore, Nick goads Cait into storming out. Afterwards, Nick and Mel 'go for a walk with the cousins' and ramble on about proto-man behavior including Bigfoot, Wendigos, and Facebook. Like a Thanksgiving dinner, it goes on too long and makes you wonder what else you could be doing right now if you didn't feel so guilty obligated. Happy Turkey Day!

    Ep. 27 - Dalrymple in Time

    Put on your tam, grab your bagpipes, and wear your kilt commando style, because we're headed to the highlands for this episode of The Booze + Spirits Podcast! We're discussing the spirits of Scotland in this episode, 'Mel!' gives us a tour of a creepy castle and its green lady, Nick rants about government betrayal on a ghostly glen, and Cait finishes our journey by warming our tired bones with a pastoral hot toddy.

    Ep. 26 - Call Her DADA

    Ep. 26 - Call Her DADA

    t's our one-year anniversary! One year of Booze + Spirits, and despite all that experience, Mel shows up late, Cait pulls her conversation cues from Cards Against Humanity, and Nick talked into the cold mic while the hot mic was in another part of the room again (sorry for the potato quality). For this momentous event we decided on a episode touching some of the darker, nastier denizens of the paranormal world (the ghost ones, not douchey or pretentious ghost hunters), and some ways to keep yourself from being caught in their webs. So sit in for an extra long, sub-quality version of Defense Against the Dark Arts class, and at the end Cait will send you home with a recipe for a Bloody Mary that doubles as a protection spell!

    Like we mention in the podcast, Michelle Bellanger is one of our favorite sources for information on psychic and magical arts. You can find her books through her website.

    Ep. 25 - Sphincter Obsession

    Ep. 25 - Sphincter Obsession

    In a Hail Mary pass attempt at keeping our themes fresh at just-less-than-a-year into the podcast, we decided to talk about cursed films in this episode! Cait tells us about a movie that was so (rightfully) cursed that it never got finished, despite several attempts. Then Nick does it all for Damian by covering the bizarre circumstances behind-the-scenes on the set of 1976's The Omen. Finish it all off with a demonic-looking margarita, and way, WAY too much about sphincters, and you have a Booze + Spirits Podcast!
