    Farewell from the Hollywood Roosevelt!

    Farewell from the Hollywood Roosevelt!

    This is it, folks! After 5 years and an uncountable number of burps, Amie and Tami are signing off with this very special episode that brings us full circle. Our very first topic in episode 1 was Marylin Monroe, and for our final recording we rented a room in the place where Marylin had her very own suite and spent some of her happiest years: THE HOLLYWOOD ROOSEVELT! We talk Marylin's ghost, conspiracy theories about her death, and a lot about nachos. We wrapped up some loose ends with our remaining 50 States of Ghosts locations, and Tami finally get s to pay off a joke she set up like 2 years ago (it's the final episode and OU STILL SUCKS!). Our deepest thank you to all of our listeners who have kept us laughing and spooked us out for 162 episodes. We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did. And remember, if you see a ghost...

    Ep 161 - Ghost-Splaining

    Ep 161 - Ghost-Splaining

    Ahhh... nothing like a sip of the old sock-strained garbage water at the end of a long day... This week is the first (and last!) ever WILD CARD episode! No rules, just right! Tami reads from a fascinating/depressingly still true article about folks discovering their home is haunted thanks to the quarantine. And Amie sneaks in the first lady appreciation of this Women's History month with the tale of a Mexican nurse ghost who has exposed our complete lack of Spanish language skills. They shouldn't have offered French in high school, ok??? All that, and yet another reason to put of your annual gyno appointment...

    Ep 160 - No Ticket, No Tickling

    Ep 160 - No Ticket, No Tickling

    We're falling apart! Everything from desk disasters to figuring out we're too old for mesothelioma, this week's 50 States of Ghosts on PENNSYLVANIA has us humbled. Amie takes us through the ghost-hustlin' and generically-named Hill View Manor where they nickel and dime you into the grave... and beyond! And Tami talks cancer-causing flame-proofing at the Clifton 5 Theater. Hey, if it didn't burn down at least a few times, is it even an old-timey theater? idk, I'll have to ask my bestie, Mr. Gargoyle Peoples... he's on the list.

    Ep 159 - No Sneezing Allowed

    What's more macho than a loud-ass motorcycle? A loud-ass motorcycle blasting Footloose, of course! This week puts Tami's pregnancy hormones to the test when we discuss GHOST PETS!!! Tami learns what literally everyone apparently already knew about red cardinals and how they can be a sign of passed loved ones, and really brings the whole room down talking about a dead dog named Duckie. Amie brings us a variety of My Ghost Stories tales about pets, an upsetting number of which feature pets who have neglected to bring a few body parts with them from beyond. Give your fur babies some extra love tonight, and don't trust the establishment: what were the cops trying to hide about Duckie???

    Ep 158 - Trickery and Witchcraft

    Ep 158 - Trickery and Witchcraft

    Thank goodness this is a podcast, because we are SICK of seeing our own faces these days! Luckily we've got a new face to distract us with our first in a very long time guest, Kyla! She is bringing us corn huskin' realness for our episode on NEBRASKA!! First, Amie tells us about a fellow spooky-inspired thespian who's had some creepy encounters at the Temple Theater in Lincoln, Nebraska. Wait, there's someone other than us who's got a theatre degree AND an interest in the paranormal? And Tami talks us through some cringey multi-generational action at the Cornerstone Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Omaha. And the highlight of this episode is the literal TON of spooky stories that Kyla shares about her own, and her childhood bestie's haunted AF Nebraska homes. Note to self: too many doors equal too damn ghosty!

    Ep 157 - Banshees and Babes!

    Somebody call Kitty Protective Services, because these gals are crossing some boundaries! This week Tami and Amie watch and recap ghost shows, both new and old. Amie thirst-watches an episode of Ghost Brothers, where a family of four has to deal with hipster ghosts who don't consider 'Nsync worthy of vinyl. And Tami discovers the delightful Knock, Knock Ghost, where a group of gay Canadians joke and scream their way through a haunted fort. And, nbd, the Banshees are growing by two feet: Tami's having a baby! Stay tuned for her reluctant reviews of non-alcoholic drinks on future episodes, now that she's not lying through her teeth about it. Banshees and No Booze? This kid better be worth it...
