    Poisonous Sharks and the Patchsquatch

    It's that time of year again... it's our birthdays episode!! And we've come to realize that we are the poisonous sharks that lie in your 30s. Please drink some wine and eat a steak on our behalf. In honor of our twin flames, Em covers a part cryptid, part demon goat creature that's suspiciously similar to Christine, known commonly as America's Hircine Shifter. Then Christine brings us one of the most gruesome and biggest bummers of a story she could have on our birthdays in the Wichita Massacre. We're also already planning our birthdays next year so see you in 365 f*****g days because it's going to get weird on Em's 30th... and that's why we drink!

    A Baby Barcalounger and the Water Tumbler of Doom

    It's episode 225, folks, and we've got some personal updates for you! Here are a few clues: Em had their pants down in a murderer's house and Christine had a catastrophe involving a dolphin named Dolph Lundgren and a sizzling laptop. But we mustered through and have some wild stories for you today, both from across the pond. First, Em covers the urban legend, the Black Shuck, which may or may not have creepy fingers. Then Christine brings us Britain's most prolific serial killer, Harold Shipman.  We also investigate the invention of deer... and that's why we drink!

    The Hogwarts of Prisons and Two Generations of Cringeworthy Screen Names

    It's episode 224! And the Vaccination Trifecta are finally out of quarantine and visiting family so we're super excited to bring you our very first live show from Christine's home state of Ohio! We had such a blast in Columbus and covered incredible stories: Em took us about an hour down the road to the Mansfield Reformatory. Then Christine takes us 30 minutes in the opposite direction for the intriguing unsolved case of the Circleville Letter Writer. And we won a Webby! We're SO thrilled. Thank you so much for everyone who voted and has supported us over the years. Check out our 5 word speech linked below. That's definitely why we drink!

    Schiefersaurs and Balloonatoons

    Apologies in advance to all the cuttlefish out there... episode 223 takes us into the depths of the sea for Em's story on the legendary Kraken (as well as some wild facts about squids vs octopi) ! Then Christine covers the infamous Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski and creates a word we're never going to stop using now: "balloonatoons". And if you ever wanted to hear our take on Oswald the Octopus, we've got you covered... and that's why we drink!

    The Wine Kill Switch and the Paranormal Vagina Monologues

    The Wine Kill Switch and the Paranormal Vagina Monologues

    It's Em's lucky episode 222 and the rumors are true... Christine is with demon! We're dishing all the details on reactions and reliving the wild pregnancy genius that is The Maltese Bagans (created because a certain famed demon hunter yet again did not respond to Christine's pleas). Then Em takes on a story just dripping in ectoplasm from every orifice, the story of medium Eva Carrière (NOT to be confused with our Eva, for reasons that will soon become clear). Afterward, Christine takes us to New South Wales, Australia to cover the brutal and heartbreaking case of the Lin family murders and a daughter so incredible we can't send her enough love and light. We also debate the use of planchettes as teething toys... and that's why we drink!

They don't give me a reason to drink!

I love these two and the difference of the stories they do. They have a great friendship (near or far) and they make me want to listen more. I do enjoy the banter that they have and if I skip anything, it's usually the commercials. I hope to see them on tour once the world stops slowly ending... Since I have been working from home, I have been able to catch up on their podcast. Keep on drinking!

Interesting show with AMAZING hosts!

This is my absolute favorite podcast. Em and Christine are both wonderful story tellers sharing well-researched paranormal and true crime stories in an engaging way. This podcast has brought me hours of entertainment and company. Thank you Em and Christine! I can’t say enough amazing things about this podcast.
