We Do What We Want... And We Like That.
Two formerly Catholic witches take bite-sized looks into the paranormal, synchronicities, symbols and lore.
Episode 6 - Part Two: A Man's Experience Inside the Academy
Sara's husband Dave joins us for part two of the virtual tour on episode 6 to discuss why men might have a bad time on the haunted top floor of the old school, convent, and orphanage that is considered Mother Joseph's finest work.
This amazing historic site is also in grave danger of partial demolition by the City of Vancouver for a dirty development deal under shady circumstances.
We really want you to be able and visit the whole site yourselves sometime in the future, and you can help us make that happen. MoJo needs our help.
Action items to help us fight to save it are at the bottom of the Academy Tour Page.

We are absolutely humbled by the response to the launch of our Spreadshirt Site - and the Big John shirt certainly seems like a hit. Thank you to all that have ordered, and all those that continue to listen and support our work! WE LOVE YOU!
Episode 5 - A Visit To MoJo's House - The Providence Academy
On this special two part episode, we take you on a tour of The Providence Academy in Vancouver, Washington, the last remaining building Mother Joseph herself built, where she lived and died.
The best way to experience these two episodes is to head over to the Providence Academy page to follow along with the photos as we walk through and describe the building's details. (We will link the episode audio there too.) You also can go to the bottom of the page to find out how to help us save this place - we've made the easy action links clickable for you.
It appears that this building is ground zero for Hidden Brick magick and we'll tell you why. Why might hauntings experienced there over the years continue to happen?
Rumors of reasons for the activity here include CURSED BRICKS and a HAUNTED BELL. We'll separate the fact from the fiction when it comes to the local rumors here.
SHOW NOTES HERE.

F**k Pepe the Frog!

Episode Four: A Transmission From 1871
Last episode we told you about when Sara found that first Hidden brick from 1871 that kicked off this whole Brick Madness for us both.
This time we give you brief history lesson on the English Hudson's Bay Company and how bricks first arrived in Clark County to build Fort Vancouver, where the first Catholic Settlement to the area was located.
John McLoughlin, a French Canadian employee in charge of the Hudson's Bay Company at Fort Vancouver, wrote his friend Father Blanchet in Montreal, Canada asking for help for the new settlement. Turns out McLoughlin himself is also connected to both Andrea AND Sara's family... and still seen haunting Oregon City.
McLoughlin's letter to Canada brought an order of nuns to the area, led by new Superior Mother Joseph of the Sacred Heart. MoJo herself was the catalyst for the creation of the Hidden Brick Company, and she won't let us forget it. The Synchronicity web making up this story begins to weave itself together as we start lining out the long line of connections surrounding the Hudson's Bay Company.
Episode Three: Fathers and Daughters...
TW: Death, Dark Themes, Language
There was a different subject planned for Episode 3 (which is now going to be Episode 4), but as our listeners will soon learn, Mother Joseph continually makes her presence known as we continue this project and steers it accordingly.
One of the patterns that keeps happening is finding unexpected familial connections to the players in this Hidden brick story, again and again. Sara learned through discussions with her husband Dave that his grandfather Billy worked in WWII at a Vancouver site that is related to the Hidden family called the Kaiser Shipyard.
A string of local tragedies linked to the industrial area began in the 1940s, and as we told you in Episode Two, Sara herself has a history with the marine industry and some connected local hauntings in particular. Seeing the latest family link as a sign to take a deeper look into the area, Sara went to take photos of the supposedly haunted Kaiser boatyard for the Hidden Brick page of our website.
It turned out that Dave's grandfather working there as a young man wasn't the biggest Synchronicity whopper that day, which unexpectedly led to Sara sobbing in a random neighborhood park on a Saturday afternoon.
We promise never to leave you bummed out at the end of an episode - we will end with a discussion about how the very first live tweeting of Episode 1 by our friend and MothPit Network founder Sage left us crying with laughter and led to a funny T-shirt.
Do you roll with Big John too? Tell us all about it on Twitter @TwoWitchesPod!
