    I'm Dreaming of a Dwight Christmas

    Ashley kicks off our Christmas triptych with a brief history of the holiday before diving into her Pennsylvania Dutch roots to serve up the Belsnickel, a Germanic companion of St. Nicholas. If you prefer your festive folklore to be more austere than cheerful, this might be the Yuletide figure of your dreams. For dessert, we take a short look at the “Dwight Christmas” episode of The Office. Are you ready to find out if you’re impish or admirable? If so, hit play.

    A Cracker Jack Kitty Cat

    A Cracker Jack Kitty Cat

    This month, the pizzeria is visited by the talented Becky of Homespun Haints podcast. She cooked up some regional Appalachia-inspired specials to share with our patrons. First, she serves a little known tale of a possible Sasquatch encounter in Cracker's Neck Virginia, whose name is morbidly fitting, if this tale holds truth. The final dish of the night is the history of the six-legged Wampus cat of east Tennessee with a light sprinkling of meth hippos.

    The Lovers of Loch Maree

    The Lovers of Loch Maree

    For this week’s story by the slice, Ashley serves up the legend of the Lovers of Loch Maree, which she came across while researching her Scottish mythology episode. This tragic, and somewhat bizarre, story centers on a pair of tombstones set facing each other on one of the small islands in Loch Maree. If you think you’ve made some mistakes in your romantic life, let me assure you that you have nothing on these forlorn lovers.

We know it’s no longer Halloween, but if you want to learn more about rat-eating men, 7 foot tall vampires with iron teeth, and vindictive ghosts of old, we’ve got you.

    Bears Eat Babies

    For this week’s story by the slice, Lindsay shares the many theories surrounding the origins of the Kindlifresser, or the Child Eater of Bern. This terrifying statue atop a fountain in Old Bern will have you scratching your head and holding your children a little bit closer until you notice the war bears at the base that make you want to go on a Teddy Bear Picnic. Just don’t throw yourself into the fountain, or any nearby bear pits.

An absolute staple

All three of the co-hosts are so witty and fun! Pineapple Pizza Podcast brings a unique and conversational approach to an incredibly wide variety of topics. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed their banter as they share stories and facts. I now know more about Columbia Hippos and Scottish mythology than I could’ve ever predicted! I’m working backwards through their catalogue as a new listener. This podcast is an absolute staple in any listening diet! Who doesn’t love a delicious and well-balanced meal?!

Share a Slice

Pineapple Pizza doesn’t take itself seriously while still covering the mysterious (and often macabre) with passion and fun. I’ve never seen another show discuss some of the cryptids and other topics this podcast tackles (for instance, their most recent episode on the Scottish Wulver or Sheepman). Is it weird to say you may get hungry while listening too? They have a knack for bringing entertainment to high strangeness. Give them a subscribe now!
