Do your conversations kill the party? Do you find yourself getting "that look" due to your extensive knowledge about turn of the century asylums? Have you ever wondered if there is a market for human skin books? If so then we are the podcast for you! We are pulling the dark things out from the shadows and throwing them into the spot light, to be talked about while we sprinkle in some comedy and cursing. We are not making fun of these topics, rather, we are laughing in the face of the dark out of sheer bullheaded defiance. We make the bold move and look up the stuff that you don't want in your browser history for plausible deniability if no other reason. Because with us, you might be disturbed, but you're not alone.

    Hippo Ranching & Lizard People aka The Great Fever Dream & The Coldest Blood

    Hippo Ranching & Lizard People aka The Great Fever Dream & The Coldest Blood

    Season 5 is off with a bang as Regina tells us the tail of hippo ranching and what could have been a very big aggressive problem in the south. This story is busting at the seams with kooky characters, bad ideas, and a sense of entitlement that only the early 1900's can bring. It also makes us question what might have been if 'lake cow bacon' had become a core element in the American diet.

    Lynn comes back with the whacky wtf'ery that is lizard people. People really believe in this stuff and take innocent lives because of their delusions. This cast is definitely NOT run by lizard people...

Great Topics!

Found this gem at the PNW True Crime Festival last year and adore them! Some of their topics are downright crazy! And I def have a disturbing interest! BTW, some of the negative ratings, the reviewers can’t even spell! How am I supposed to take advice of whether to listen or not when these folks can’t even use spell check?!

Good subjects, annoying hosts

Good subjects, love the obscure weirdness. Too much fart sniffing and extreme leftist opinion. Letting Jr. High snarkyness get in the way of a good story.

St. Olga

Do your research. At the historical time you're speaking of there was one church so to speak. There wasn't a "Catholic" church yet, because the schism of Constantinople and Rome hadn't happened yet. It divided and the Western Church was affiliated with Rome and the Eastern Church with Constantinople, hence Roman Catholic and Byzantine Orthodox, divisions from there. Saints we're sinners first. Saint Theodora was a courtesan before she became Empress, then sainted. The Orthodox Church has a Patriarchate in Moscow, that was established when the Rus became Christians.
