Episode 100 - The Rocket on the Roof
This week the Erins exercise curiosity with "The Rocket on the Roof," found on YouTube. Filmmakers Ryan Maxey and Josh Polin, along with Wesley Francis, didn't need a long time to relay the mystery of a visible rocket on the roof of a nearby apartment building. A bit of investigation yields an answer in this quick and entertaining watch.
Episode 99 - Telemarketers
This week the Erins dial it up for "Telemarketers," available on HBO Max. Contributing to charities can be a rewarding experience. Being solicited over the phone by pushy telemarketers less so. Finding out your money just lined the pockets of corporate douches is a complete ruiner. Thankfully, Sam and Pat are of the same mind and set out to use their years in the call center to topple the industry. These misfits turned heroes steal your heart and not your wallet!
Episode 98 - Satan Wants You
This week the Erins jump into the fire with “Satan Wants You,” available on Amazon Prime. The Satanic Panic of the 80s/90s has deep roots in the revelations told in the book “Michelle Remembers.” The recovered memories of Michelle Smith disturbed suburban America and had neighbors eyeballing each other for signs of satanic activity. Save the children! Also, maybe ask some questions…
Episode 97 - Milli Vanilli
This week the Erins blame it on everyone else with “Milli Vanilli,” available on Paramount Plus. Rob and Fab came from humble beginnings and made it to 80's pop music icons. Their meteoric rise to worldwide fame came with a price. These two fell from media darlings to villains after the disclosure that they didn't sing their hit songs. Why not focus the public outcry on the music industry moguls? Well, it's just better for these two 20-somethings to take the heat, right?
Episode 96 - Desperately Seeking Soulmate: Escaping Twin Flames Universe
This week the Erins discuss “Desperately Seeking Soulmate: Escaping Twin Flames Universe,” available on Prime Video. The way people find love has changed, but the desire to be half of a whole remains. Jeff and Shaleia desire to lighten your wallet, then maybe your heart. They come across as modern gurus with guarantees of finding your ‘twin flame' if you follow their plan. They're a little bit cult, and a little bit MLM
Episode 95 - BS High
This week the Erins tackle “BS High,” available on Max. Few docs blend sports and true crime. Fewer still keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what con(ish) man Roy Johnson will do next. This manages to do both while playing with your emotions. Prepare for ager and empathy in equal doses!
