BOX321: Hey, That Tastes Funny
If you could peer inside someone’s tummy, would you want to? How about over and over again? This guy did. Then, JG talks about the reanimating of long-dormant creatures and what that means for us. Alexis St. Martin’s stomach hole and zombie viruses in BOX321. Serve chilled.
BOX320: A Warehouse Of Potential Babies
JG tells us about a couple who gave birth to a baby conceived when mom was only two years old. And Kat shares the many wonders of the first Emperor of China’s huge funerary complex. A 29 year old embryo and a terracotta army in BOX:320. So fresh, it doesn't even make noise when it sits down.
BOX319: Chocolate, Spinach And Fish Oil
Got your tickets to the Freak Show next Saturday the 17th on Looped? If not, get them here!
Meet the woman whose face became famous after her death and the woman who holds a Guinness record she doesn't remember achieving. An immortal photo and a woman who seemed immortal in BOX319. It begins with a real bummer and ends up nice. Like a dinner on a cruise ship where you're paired up with other couples, but the other couple leaves early to “get to a show on time” when really, you felt that tension all through dinner. They weren't going to a show. They're probably getting divorced.

BOX316: Yelling At Florence Nightingale In Istanbul

JT and Kat are awesome! Their podcast is funny, weird and can get dark, perfect mix for me! Love it!
The reason for my 4 star rating is Kat. This podcast is wonderful and weird and for the most part, I love both of the hosts. However, kat seems to LOVE playing social justice warrior which can get really annoying. Aside from that, I enjoy listening twice a week and learning about all kinds of weird sh**!
Used to be great
I've been listening since The Box of Oddities started, it used to be great and really funny. Now there are too many advertisements and the hosts just aren't as funny as they used to be. I guess they keep the best content behind the patreon pay wall. There are 3 to 5 minutes of ads in the middle of every episode now. At least put them at the end so I can easily skip them. I used to look forward to every episode but now I don't care to listen.
