    A Cult Leader from Texas and a Giant Worm from Ohio and a Walk into a Bar

    A Cult Leader from Texas and a Giant Worm from Ohio and a Walk into a Bar

    Hey Misfits! Steve and Emmy are back with a brand new episode that’s going to rock your socks off. Emmy kicks it off with the story of the True Way cult — a religion that believed God would appear on a local retail shopping TV channel to save the world from impending destruction. Somehow, that’s not the most ridiculous part: all of the believers were forced to live in middle-of-nowhere Texas where they definitely got barbecue sauce on their all-white uniforms and cowboy hats (at least according to Steve). Emmy passes it off to Steve who tells us about some crazy cryptids like “SinkHole Sam” — a giant ugly worm discovered by the one and only Dr. Erasmus Quattlebaum (yup, that’s a real guys name). They also chat through the Loveland Frogman, who Emmy believes may just be a wet pickle.

    The Genius Behind the Velocipastor, Brendan Steere

    The Genius Behind the Velocipastor, Brendan Steere

Then, Steve and Emmy chat with with the man, the myth, the legend: Brendan Steere, writer and director of the cult film sensation, Velocipastor! We talk about pastors turning into paper mache T-Rex’s, the low-budget film industry, and so much more. Don’t worry, if you haven’t already seen the film, Steve and Emmy break it down for you at the beginning of the episode.  Don’t forget to check out our friends at Wine, Dine and Story Time podcast,  as well as Page Turners and Button Mashers Podcast.  You can find Brendan Steere on his website, Twitter: @brendansteere, and instagram: @Brendansteere

    Is Elvis Still Alive? A Pirate Ghost Wedding, and Pinocchio in Space

    Is Elvis Still Alive? A Pirate Ghost Wedding, and Pinocchio in Space

    Welcome back misfits! This episode, while simultaneously recording a podcast and trying to figure out which one of her upstairs neighbors has been playing “smoke on the water” for 45 minutes on their bass guitar, Emmy discusses the age old question we know has been on all of your minds: is Elvis still alive? While some think the King died decades ago, super fans are still holding out hope that he was an extra in “Home Alone”. Not weird enough for you? Try this. Steve tells the story of a woman who married a pirate ghost, and then decided to divorce him a few weeks later. This begs the question, what would a human-pirate-ghost-baby look like? Then, Steve, Emmy and friend of the show Zach round out the episode with a discussion of the hit 1964 classic, Pinocchio in Space — spoiler alert, it’s pretty tough to get through (the movie, not the conversation).

    Hey Misfits! Steve and Emmy have a Bigfoot-tastic episode for you today. They’re speaking with Dr. Jeff Meldrum, an expert on all things hominids and Sasquatch. He tells us about the most compelling evidence — from footprints to videos — and why they should convince the h8rs that Bigfoot is real AF. We also get a story in from a listener about his real life Bigfoot encounters, and real life Bigfoot tattoos — not sure which is spookier. Emmy also discusses a tunnel conspiracy; tldr, the world is connected by UFO tunnels underground. Heyo. Steve and Emmy also discuss what animal hybrid they would be — bring on the Bat Girl and Grizzly Boy memes!

    Reptilians in the Airport, Popping and Locking to Death, and Theodore Rex

    Reptilians in the Airport, Popping and Locking to Death, and Theodore Rex

    Heyyyy Misfits! This week the Steve and Emmy listens in to a theater-themed ghost story from one of their listeners, Valerie, that left Emmy freaked out for the next two days. Seriously. Then, Emmy takes us through the legend of the Denver International Airport — complete with Illuminati conspiracies, secret underground tunnels, statutes that kill, and so much more. It’s a doozy. Then, Steve talks about the “dancing plague”, a real life disease that spread through Germany back in the day that had people dancing for months on end. These people truly pop-lock-and-dropped all the way to the grave. Then, Steve and Emmy finish it off with a movie that was somehow worse than Pinocchio in Space: Theodore Rex. Featuring Whoopi Goldberg and a man in a child’s T-Rex costume as the main protagonists, Steve and Emmy conclude that you should only watch this movie if you’re legally required to.
