    Abnormal Humans Ep 7. Diane Zamora + David Graham

    TW: Murder, Talks of consensual sexual encounters

    It's just me, Oona, this week and my allergies are acting up but we couldn't leave you hanging this week! Listen to this episode about the murder of Adrianne Jones and hear our cat play obnoxiously loud in the background, occasionally.  Zamora, Graham,  and Jones were in a love triangle... or were they? Who manipulated who, here?

    The Dread of Aging and Death - How to Overcome & How to Good Human it up

    The Dread of Aging and Death - How to Overcome & How to Good Human it up

    We all age and show signs of aging. Yet aging is considered a horrendous, awful thing that eventually befalls even the prettiest, most put together individuals on the planet. Why? Whats behind this? How do we change this? And most importantly, how can we be good humans to ourselves and others when it comes to this topic? Spoiler: You’re way more beautiful and wonderful than society will allow you to believe. Because, if you actually like yourself, then how will businesses continue to sell you crap you don’t need to supposedly make you “better”?

    Abnormal Humans Ep 6: Jane Toppan

    Abnormal Humans Ep 6: Jane Toppan

    TW: Murder .... Ever wonder what murder was like in the 1800s? Now you don't have to! Cause this episode focuses on a murderous nurse lady. That's the official job title, probably.

    Black Lives Matter Protests and the Agitators Giving it a Bad Rap

    Black Lives Matter Protests and the Agitators Giving it a Bad Rap

    Listen to our black cat protest for BLM from the other room. Seriously, she is next level and somehow our mic picked up on it . On a serious note, this episode is run by Steve, yay Steve! He informs us of agitators looking to invalidate the BLM movement via violence and looting. Have a listen with a cuppa and learn about this very real phenomenon coloring your perceptions. Love y'all! Even if we disagree.

    Update: Blackout Tuesday! Educate Your Beautiful Brains.

    Update: Blackout Tuesday! Educate Your Beautiful Brains.

    Recommendations for support of BLM can be found here: https://metacogmisfits.com/blog/post/72350/black-lives-matter-period. Transcript: "Hey hey hey, today is blackout Tuesday and in solidarity with the BLM movement we will not be releasing podcast episodes this week. As a group of white art punks, we are muting ourselves to allow other voices to be heard. Please use this time to educate yourself on systemic racism in the US and, because it is Pride Month, I'd also like to advocate for people looking into the Stonewall Uprising of 1969. Knowledge is power, friends!


    Also, we posted an article yesterday full of ways you can support people of color, so please check out that article and consider donating to bail funds, BLM movements, or find local vigils protests to attend (peacefully).


    Have a lovely week. Stay safe and healthy. Don't forget to advocate for your fellow humans and while we would love to hear from our listeners on social media, please spare us the All Lives Matter BS because that's a given. All lives matter once black lives matter, so say it with me... Black lives matter. "

Oona @ Metacog Misfits ,

Check. It. Out.

True crime, abnormal psychology, human behavior, science, and humor all rolled into one. It's the educational laugh you didn't know you needed.

Kasey Carter Wong ,

If there was ever a time to need good humans...

We all need this right now! Evidence-based content about being a good human. With wonderful bits of humor sprinkled throughout!
