    Listener Stories: Vol. 71

    Welcome to Zesty Zeptember! It's officially fall, as far as we're concerned and we've got some spooky scandals to knock your witchy socks off. We love how many anonymous submissions we got about everything from supernaturally finding out about secret family members to government conspiracies that are so juicy you may want to listen to the episode quickly in case it mysteriously disappears. If our Instagrams go dark in the next couple days, it was because of this episode... and that's why we drink!

Live, Laugh, (possibly possessed by) Lemon 😂🤣

Amazing podcast! If you are a 30something who enjoys scary/creepy/awkward laughter/punny comedy/possession (I love Lemon however I must throw it out there; HOW DO YALL NOT FEEL THE DEMON ATTACHED TO LEMON? I can through the airways… he visits me.. story for another time) and want a fantastic distraction that gives you the craziest “Fun Facts” you never knew you needed - this is your podcast. I’ve been binging 2-5 episodes daily since April 13th it’s all I listen to.

Love! Love! Love! Love you all so much - haven’t sent in my own listeners story because it will be actually long I have so much to tell y’all about how this podcast has intertwined itself into my daily life. Currently on episode 213 - hopefully I can finish catching up and writing my novel for y’all to never read on air 🤣😂 before Halloween
Stay safe! Stay awesome!

Two amazing people!

My absolute favorite podcast! They both seem like they’re genuinely funny and kind hearted. I love listening to them rant about different topics and their stories are always really good!

The Fine Wine of Podcasting!

This was my first podcast choice years ago. I’ve grown to admire and appreciate their exceptional storytelling skills, and brilliant minds. Humor and serious life matters are not shied away from, and these women are a true gold standard. Their friendship is unwavering, and we all should be so lucky to know people like them. The research is unrelenting and wow, what great episodes. Subscribe if you dare!!! Xxx
