Welcome to The Wyrd Sisters, a podcast for the morbidly curious. Featuring three crones trapped in the prematurely creaky bodies of twenty-something year olds, every fortnight we tell one another a disturbing tale linked by a single creepy theme. We cover everything from bizarre legends to harrowing true crimes. Please note this podcast contains mature content.
28: Medical Mishaps (Grip It and Rip It!)
A big round of applause for La who is joining us this week in Lacey’s absence. Y’all know when La is on the pod, things get gross. This week we celebrate all the weird and wonderful nightmare fuel in medical history. Some old school gross shit. From power tools to invasive parasites to pool noodles, we’ve got some seriously squeamish stories just for you.
Remember, whenever in doubt: don’t put household objects, animals, or power tools inside yourself. Don’t be pre-nut stupid. Be post-nut smart.
Send all of your love to Lacey who will be back with us soon.

26: imposters (Followed by a Fat Man in Red)
Would you drink Laura’s blood cocktail? Sip the sweet nectar of Lacey’s swollen dry-shaved lumps? Tongue Tay’s eviscerated armpit? You might, if you’re the type to shimmy down chimneys in the dead of night to gain access to a stranger's home. We’re on to you, Fat Man. We know your ways. Come with us on the final episode of the hellish mess that has been 2020 - happy anniversary, coven! And pleasant holidays all round 💚💜🖤
Content Warning: rape, murder, assault
25: Cursed Expeditions (Idiots Abroad)
Desert, Tundra, the funky Jungle. The trifecta of cursed expeditions. Let us take you on a round-the-world trip with these three idiotic tales. A race to the top of Australia - interrupted by rats, the polar bear war, and the holiday cabin from hell, and finally, a nine-month long walk home that ends in dysentery. You don't need your passport, you don't even have to leave your house, mate. Kick back and enjoy. Highlights include: Laura's Polar Bear Fact Corner and a lot yelling. Big thank you to our wonderful La: friend of the pod and honorary coven member. They stand in for Lacey this week! Tune into episode 26 for a life update!
Content Warnings: Death, animal death, mention of slavery, we drop the C bomb a lot (Sorry mum!)
24: Voodoo (that you do so well)
We'll put a spell on you. Come and explore the beautiful, mysterious, and misunderstood culture of Voudon, commonly known as Voodoo. This culture isn't all pins in dolls and hexes. We're talking A Game of Thrones levels of intrigue. Was the fact that Voodoo was so misunderstood, the force that gave it power? Come with us on this journey, and don't forget your plastic hairdressing cape.
Content Warning: rape, slavery, graphic descriptions of gore and violence, murder
23: Haunted Castles (Oh baby, baby)
All Hallow's Eve approaches and we have three spectacular tales of haunting real estate just for you. Yes, you who is reading this description. We recorded this episode specifically for you because we love you. Ain't that grand? Now, follow us through the chapel... mind the oubliette. Then we'll pass by the trebuchet. Don't mind the drumming. We'll exit through the trapdoor into the dungeon. The neighbours are lovely... very high-spirited.
As always, wash your hands, stay safe, and protect Halloween.
Content/Trigger Warnings: child death, torture
