    Tune in for all things Ed Gein this week! We discuss his murders, grave robbing, and his special craft time. We also talk about his allegedly haunted cauldron and it’s new home - Zak Bagan’s Haunted Museum.

    Sonjay’s segment is all about socks! That’s right - did you know the average family loses 100 socks a year? Georgia is outraged by this.

    58. 19th Century Media Studies: the Cottingley Fairies & the Disappearance of Louis Le Prince

    58. 19th Century Media Studies: the Cottingley Fairies & the Disappearance of Louis Le Prince

    Tune in this week to hear all about cameras is the early 19th century! First, we delve into the Cottingley Fairy Hoax, a hoax so bad we don’t understand how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle thought he was looking at real photographs of fairies. Then, we explore the disappearance of Louis Le Prince, the guy who invented the motion picture camera BEFORE Thomas Edison.

    Tangents include the deaths of DMX and Prince Philip, how much Thomas Edison just sucked and how Tesla was wayyy cooler, and the invention of the electric chair. Bob’s Burgers gets a big shoutout (RIP Topsy) and Sonjay’s Segment is all about how cool bees are.

    That’s right - you heard a promo! We’ve plugged her before and we’re plugging her again, it’s our friend Jessica Lemon at Sour Sweet Spooky! Please check her out, if you haven’t already.

    Tangents include a couple of Doctor Who mentions, some fun royal family facts, the Mandela Effect, and what really happened to the Titanic.

    56. A Nutshell Episode of Nutshell Studies: Francis Glessner Lee

    56. A Nutshell Episode of Nutshell Studies: Francis Glessner Lee

    Tune in this week as we forget how calendars work and all date-related pop culture references, as well as gush about Alan Tudyk and Resident Alien. Sonjay’s Segment is all about koala bears and we have very opposite opinions of them. The main event is all about one of the baddest women of the 20th century, Francis Glessner Lee, and her Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death that are still used for training detectives today.

I’m a slut for spooky

I’m a slut for anything spooky or off beat...and random tangents, so this podcast is perfect.I love listening to the random tangents because that’s how my brain works too. I love the content, even if it’s something I have heard before I love Georgia and Sonjay’s perspective. ❤️

Amazingly funny dark factual podcast

This is a great tangent soupcast where they cover all the things soup and tangents. But for real I love the dark and creepy history that this podcast covers and the interaction between the hosts. It’s done in a fun and interesting way.

Spoopy Stories to Tell Your Millennial Friends in the Dark

A light-hearted and interesting podcast about heavy and grotesque topics packed to the brim with cultural references for the inner millennial in you to enjoy! What’s not to like?!

Georgia communicates the facts and tells the tales; Sonjay voices the inner dialogue I always have when listening to much more serious spooky podcasts. The fun dynamic is just two friends hanging out talking about gross stuff and laughing. Listen in on their conversation and learn about the weirder and darker happenings throughout history!

So grab a hot tea, get snuggled into a warm blanket, and be ready to be spooked by Broadcast from the Belfry!
