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.
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
22: Positively Poisonous (Protect Halloween 2020)
Double-double check your pill bottles, deduce your desserts, and maybe… don’t go to the theatre. Trust us, just don’t go. Stay in for dinner, but don’t sign any weird insurance policies from an estranged lover. Ok, don’t even bother with visitors. Just pop a couple of Tylenol and call us in the morning. Wait…
It’s Poison week and the first episode of Spooky Season 2020. Stay home, wash your hands, and listen to your favourite hags. We have three tantalising tales of murder, foul play, and everything that makes you sick. (Including a journey in which we get side-tracked by teeth.)
Content Warnings: mention of child death, Thalidomide, Terrorism, Hostage Situations
21: Weird Murder Weapons (Your Birth Chart = Ew)
What is your precise time of birth? Do you have intimate knowledge of your sun, moon and rising signs? Are you a Libra man? We're here to let you know that none of it matters because any old idiot can take a bedazzled sex toy to your head, no matter your star sign. This week we investigate blinged-out phalluses, knives so flexible they break all the Hauge conventions, and an absolutely killer console - pun 100% intended.

20: Shit Dads (Happy Father's Day?)
Father's Day, the day where spawn everywhere tear their hair out trying to decide which last-minute gift dad will hate the least: the overpriced chocolate golf balls or the Lynx Africa body wash set? We love you, Dad, we just don't know what to buy you. In honour of fathers everywhere, we're here to tell you about three top-tier terrible daddies: a god-fearing Lutheran, a Winchester-toting rancher, and an extremely sensuous horse. Sit back, relax, and ponder life's greatest questions with your friendly coven of willfully wyrd sisters - like, is it fighting capitalism to clean your washing machine with piss, or is Gwyneth Paltrow just the worst?

I really enjoy listening to them. As a Palestinian and Arab, I really appreciated the fact that they mentioned the tragedy of Beirut. Much love ❤️
