    Mongoose Cam and a New Gemini Icon

    Mongoose Cam and a New Gemini Icon

    Be sure to watch your chickens this week because Gef the Gemini, oh and spectral, Mongoose just might come after them! Em takes us all the way to the Isle of Man for the wild story of Gef the Mongoose in the second part of their series on the life of Harry Price. Then Christine covers the highly debated Smiley Face Killings and we consider just how ancient smiley face graffiti may actually be. We're also feeling pretty dragged by this 80 year old mongoose and his Gemini ways... and that's why we gossip then vanish!

    The Paranormal Cinematic Universe and a Cosmopolitan Globetrotter

    Everything happens for a reason... especially when you want an orange lava burst juice box! We're back on our game this week and, with the exception of 6 minutes where Em's face freezes for no earthly reason (we're so sorry), we've got video for you again (check out our YouTube page here)! We're bringing you some intense and layered stories this week with the history of Harry Price, the first official ghost hunter! Then Christine takes us to Bethesda, Maryland and the home of the yacht club frat bro, with the wild and gruesome murder of Jayna Murray, also known as the Lululemon Murder. There's also quite a bit of undercarriage ectoplasm to discuss this week... and that's why we drink!

    A Vegetarian Lake Monster and a Proud Consumptive

    A Vegetarian Lake Monster and a Proud Consumptive

    "Pour one out for Michael Scott, Juniper and Em's computer! We attempted to up our game and record video this week and accidentally crashed Em's computer... oops! But that only means we get the chance to release the audio from one of our favorite live shows: Minneapolis at the beautiful Varsity Theater! Sit back, relax and get your drinks ready while we tell you the tales of Pepie the monster of Lake Pepin. He's either the size of a leg, an elephant or 20 feet, we're not exactly sure. Then Christine covers "the most cold blooded murderer who ever walked god's footstool", Harry Hayward and his dramatic murder of the badass dressmaker Kitty Ging. We're also mildly confused by the Minneapolis hamster tubes... and that's why we drink!

    170: A La Croix Lobotomy and a Big Golden Eye

    Let there be fun! We've got a wild ride for you this week as we virtually travel to the southern hemisphere. First Em covers the extremely haunted and messed up Aradale Mental Hospital in Australia. Then Christine takes us over to New Zealand for the also extremely messed up Bain Family murders in Dunedin. We're also pretty sure there's a dancing candelabra involved in both... and that's why we drink!

    Listener Stories: Vol. 40

    Happy May, boozers and shakers! Get ready to white knuckle and buckle because it's the last month before Gemini season starts and we're already trying to figure out how to send gift-giving drones to each other. These last few months might have looked an awful lot like our own homes but that doesn't mean we can't spike our dopamine levels with some spooky stories! We've got a "date from Nopesville", a Scientology encounter and some haunted elevators and dorm rooms. And be sure to stay til the very end for a bonus story that just might involve a haunting and our favorite citrus... and that's why we drink!

My Favorite Podcast!

This is easily my favorite podcast to listen to! Christine and Em are so funny - I live for their intros and commentary throughout the show. On top of it, the stories are SO interesting to listen to. Hoping for a live show near me soon!!

Fun fact

I heard about them on morbid so i was excited to listen. I really tried with this podcast but i can’t. There’s way too much talking. Whenever they say “fun fact” you can expect an unrelated tangent. Their jokes last too long and it’s not funny. Their comments sounds malicious to each other. Em interrupts every 2 mins to make the story about herself by saying “same” then talks forever. I love a good banter in a podcast but not when it takes over the entire episode. Good content that kept me around for a bit just with a lot of fast forwarding.

KEE POD ,

Blah blah blah

Too much chit chat- tell the stories
