    Episode 94: What Went Down at Northern State Hospital?

    Episode 94: What Went Down at Northern State Hospital?

    This week Cassie drags Caitlyn to an abandoned mental institution, once known as Northern State Hospital, located in Sedro-Woolley, WA. Today the site is known as Northern State Recreation Area, where you can hike through old pastures, past abandon buildings, and even through the cemetery.  Disturbing stories patient treatments in the hospital’s heyday had us relating it to Sucker Punch & Rosemary Kennedy! But the creepy tales didn’t end when the hospital shut down, now there are ghost stories that give us serious Feardotcom vibes. 😱 

    This week we shared a promo for Witches Talking Tarot (and other things...)!

    Episode 93: Kyron Horman - Missing in the PNW Part 1

    Episode 93: Kyron Horman - Missing in the PNW Part 1

    This is a case that probably just about everyone in the Pacific Northwest has heard of and no one seems prepared to forget - as it should be! It’s been given an absolute insane amount of news coverage. It's every parents worst nightmare come to life when 7-year-old Kyron disappears from Skyline Elementary school in Portland, Oregon without a trace. Here you can see what he might have grown to look like in the years since his disappearance. The combined effort of local and state law enforcement along with FBI certainly makes this case compelling, particularly once the search efforts intensified and appeared to take a dark turn in a beautiful corner of the PNW. But if you only visit our feed you won't get the whole story - so mosey over to Missing in the PNW to listen to the rest. While you're at it check out some of our other PNW Favorites - True Crime Cat Lawyer & What Happens in the Woods. Finally, just in case you're interested in any of the drama surrounding the infamous Terri.

    And of course we can't forget The Crime Diner! We shared their promo this week and think you just might like them.

    Episode 92: The (NOT) Evil Witches of Malheur Butte

    Episode 92: The (NOT) Evil Witches of Malheur Butte

    This week we take a little jaunt over to Ontario, Oregon. Where we discuss the urban legend of the “evil” witches that are up to no good at Malheur Butte. We think the “evil witch” thing is way over done, and we have some thoughts… But even if witches aren’t responsible, there still seems to be something guarding the land. We had theories from Slender Man to a crazed black bear! All of it had us saying NOPE! To end on a positive note, we lighten the mood with some info about another fun crystal - Midnight Lace Obsidian. Its properties reminded us of our New Year tarot read!

    Episode 91: A Sexually Sadistic Serial Killer in Salem

    Episode 91: A Sexually Sadistic Serial Killer in Salem

    We bet the New Year has you feeling motivated to make 2023 a fantastic trip around the sun. You may even feel a bit nostalgic. So this week we brought you a case that feels like a dark, creepy time capsule from none other than Salem, Oregon's capital city. You'll likely recall some familiar names, like DA Chris Van Dyke and Randall Woodfield a.k.a The I-5 Killer. For a moment you might even be tempted to think that the Green River Killer could make a disturbing cameo. Never heard of William Scott Smith? Well that's hardly a surprise. When it comes to his crimes or his background - mediocre white man alert.  We've brought this somewhat lesser known case back to the surface - because the young, vibrant young women are indeed worth pausing to remember.  Another Salem case to check out.  Damn Salem you scary! 😱

    This week we shared a promo for Live, Laugh, Larceny!
