    Last Call At Night Cheers

    Last Call At Night Cheers

    Wahhhh but also ACK! We are leaving you with some wonderful night calls from our wonderful listeners. But of course there is also a call about how The Big Chill and Cathy comics are connected, some rhapsodizing about monoliths (new and old), and a decision on what show is better: Frasier or Cheers. Some sentimental night calls to send us out, our favorite episodes and guests, reminiscing about Girls In Hoodies, and where we’d send our listeners to help fill the void. We promise we’ll be back someday on some astral plane. So long for now. Thanks for listening to Night Call.

    135: Mara Wilson, Acting Cults And Isolation Tanks

    135: Mara Wilson, Acting Cults And Isolation Tanks

    We are joined this week by writer and actress Mara Wilson to discuss how acting classes can function like cults and why. Mara reveals her personal Alison Mack story and talks about how we can protect child actors on sets. Then she tells us about her personal isolation tank experience and we try to figure out hacks for making isolation tank like experiences at home. At the end of the episode we have a very bittersweet important announcement about the show.

    134: Mormon Sphinxes, The Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City, And Prophetic Dreams

    Emily is off this week, but Tess and Molly are taking your night calls about Joseph Smith, sphinx monuments, and the devil's tritone! First it's a night call about the Devil's Note, which some listeners liked and others did not at all. Then an email about Joseph Smith's head on the body of a Sphinx, and whether the "Salamander Letter" is a forgery (yes.) Molly waxes philosophical on the newest Housewives franchise: Salt Lake City, and reveals some behind the scenes info she got about why this series is so bonkers. Then it's prophetic dreams - who had them and why? Are they real, or self-fulfilling prophecies? What are our recurring dreams and nightmares? All this and women who marry their step-grandfathers, on an all new Night Call!

    133: Demonic Possession, Summum & Exploding Head Syndrome

    133: Demonic Possession, Summum & Exploding Head Syndrome

    November is Dreams Month at Night Call, and we're kicking it off with some incredible dream calls and emails from listeners. Of course there are also more pyramids and architecture talk too. This time it’s Brasilia - the faded poppy mid-century utopia that is Brazil’s capital, and The Summum Pyramid - the mummification temple from 70s religion Summum in Salt Lake City, Utah. Would we get mummified and more importantly, would we let Summum do it? But also: a viral Tik Tok about the Christian conspiracy that the COVID vaccine will implant a chip in your body that is actually the Mark Of The Beast (this makes it sound cooler than it is). And our first in depth missive from dreamland - a listener who believes they heard a weird frequency online that led them to have an experience they interpreted as demonic possession. We interpret their experience and talk about the power of frequencies and music to influence or induce emotional states. All this and Exploding Head Syndrome, on an all new Night Call!

    131: The Vow & Mounds with Nikki Mayard

    We’re joined by Lazor Wulf writer Nikki Mayard to wrap up The Vow with a nylon sash. Why did the editors save all the men’s rights stuff for the 8th episode? Did seeing Keith Raniere go full Frank TJ Mackey explain how people got so deep into this cult? Did he also maybe murder a bunch of women? Who is the best Vow character: Mark, Sarah, Catherine or Nippy? How privileged do you have to be to get into this kind of group? Will season 2 explain it all or just make everyone more frustrated? Then it’s another edition of Pyramid Pals with a great call and email about our fave buildings. What’s the deal with ancient mounds? What is the best corporate pyramid, and should we save corporate pyramids from the wrecking ball or let them be lost to time? All this and more on a new Night Call!

It’s over

I just found this podcast a few weeks ago, loved it, now it’s over!
I feel cheated here. Anyways, good luck ladies!

So sad this show is ending

One of my favorites of 2020. Hard to say goodbye!

AR190038 ,

night call saved my 2020

this year has been truly insane and dystopian, but night call has kept me sane since a friend reccomended I listen to it back in March. tess, emily, and molly have great chemistry together. the show strikes a perfect balance between current news in tech, politics, art and entertainment media, weird California subculture, interesting rabbit holes off the internet, plus a hilarious and passionate appreciation for all things just slightly off-kilter. every monday I look forward to a new episode. Night Call has helped me feel connected to the world through this pandemic, and I am sure to keep listening for many, many episodes to come!
