Self-proclaimed comedians Ali Segel and Melissa Stetten discuss unsolved mysteries, creepy cults, paranormal experiences and everything in between. “They maintain a loose, upbeat dynamic as they fall down rabbit holes, which means listeners can comfortably dip their toes into the deeply unsettling and unexplained, but won’t walk away feeling, well, haunted.” (Vanity Fair, 2020)

    Wellness Scammer Belle Gibson

    Wellness Scammer Belle Gibson

    By 2014, Belle Gibson was an incredibly popular wellness influencer. She published a book and created a hugely successful app called The Whole Pantry that caught the eye of Steve Jobs. Her story of defeating cancer by eating healthy, exercising, and using alternative therapies was truly inspirational. The only problem is she lied about having cancer and pretty much everything else about her life, including her age and upbringing.

La-la-love this podcast!!!! Honk, honk!

I love this podcast. Started listening back in August of 2022, and am almost up to date. If you want a podcast that feels like late night conversations with friends that comes with the most amazing-kind-funny-accepting listener community, then look no further. If you want a hard hitting, serious, podcast, keep looking. Came to this through “What’s Up Weirdo” (highly recommend) and will be forever grateful for this gift. Keep’em coming!!!!

One of my Faves!

Great podcast! I suggest listening from the beginning bc if you don’t, you won’t understand a lot of what gives it its charm. The fans and hosts have built such a fun and close community that has been a light in a dark couple of years. Love you ladies, keep up the good work ♥️
