  • This week we're here to party, y'all! Specifically with the incredible ladies from Sinisterhood! We're so grateful and excited to have Heather and Christie on this week (and to have been on an episode of theirs - check out Sinistershood, episode 142). To wow our guests, Em covers the ankle horney ghosts of the St. Augustine Old Jail and Christine takes us to Houston for the chilling case of the Icebox Murders. We've also got an exclusive scoop on Heather's job and Christie's lobster souffle... and that's why we drink!

  • Robert Courtney was an upstanding Kansas City pharmacist and family man who was deeply devoted to his church. Courtney owned and operated two pharmacies and was perceived as an innovative businessman. His wealth was apparent to people in Kansas City in the 90’s— he lived in a $700,000 home and collected sports cars. It all came crashing down in 2001 when an oncologist discovered that Courtney had been diluting chemotherapy medications. She tipped off the FBI and the Courtney investigation became the FBI’s number one priority in 2001 up until 9/11. Courtney claimed that he started diluting the medication to pay a $600,000 IRS bill and to honor his pledge of $1 million to his church. But his greed, and the fact that he got away with it, led him to dilute more and more medications. In the end, over 98,000 prescriptions were diluted, over 4,000 patients were affected and almost 200 people died as a result. One of the most shocking aspects of this whole story is that it took 10 years for Courtney to get caught and if it weren't for one woman, he would still be working as a pharmacist today. How is that possible? We explore that question along with the even scarier question: Could this happen again?

Welcome to episode 227, where Em takes us all the way back to, first 2019 and then to year 5, for a good old fashion western saloon haunting, Miss Molly's Hotel in Dallas. Then Christine covers the heartbreaking and creepy disappearance of Kayla Berg. We also cover bladder anxiety, cake babies, and the existential Meighan... and that's why we drink!

  • It's that time of year again... it's our birthdays episode!! And we've come to realize that we are the poisonous sharks that lie in your 30s. Please drink some wine and eat a steak on our behalf. In honor of our twin flames, Em covers a part cryptid, part demon goat creature that's suspiciously similar to Christine, known commonly as America's Hircine Shifter. Then Christine brings us one of the most gruesome and biggest bummers of a story she could have on our birthdays in the Wichita Massacre. We're also already planning our birthdays next year so see you in 365 fucking days because it's going to get weird on Em's 30th... and that's why we drink!

  • It's episode 225, folks, and we've got some personal updates for you! Here are a few clues: Em had their pants down in a murderer's house and Christine had a catastrophe involving a dolphin named Dolph Lundgren and a sizzling laptop. But we mustered through and have some wild stories for you today, both from across the pond. First, Em covers the urban legend, the Black Shuck, which may or may not have creepy fingers. Then Christine brings us Britain's most prolific serial killer, Harold Shipman.  We also investigate the invention of deer... and that's why we drink!

We had such a blast in Columbus and covered incredible stories: Em took us about an hour down the road to the Mansfield Reformatory.

  • Apologies in advance to all the cuttlefish out there... episode 223 takes us into the depths of the sea for Em's story on the legendary Kraken (as well as some wild facts about squids vs octopi) ! Then Christine covers the infamous Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski and creates a word we're never going to stop using now: "balloonatoons".

  • It's Em's lucky episode 222 and the rumors are true... Christine is with demon! We're dishing all the details on reactions and reliving the wild pregnancy genius that is The Maltese Bagans (created because a certain famed demon hunter yet again did not respond to Christine's pleas). Then Em takes on a story just dripping in ectoplasm from every orifice, the story of medium Eva Carrière (NOT to be confused with our Eva, for reasons that will soon become clear). Afterward, Christine takes us to New South Wales, Australia to cover the brutal and heartbreaking case of the Lin family murders and a daughter so incredible we can't send her enough love and light. We also debate the use of planchettes as teething toys... and that's why we drink!

  • You asked, Em covered the wrong story, and then we finally delivered... this week on episode 221 Em is officially covering the topic so many of you asked for: the Backrooms Theory. And, wow, is it creepy! From mobile mannequins to death sheep to the currency of boiled almond water, you won't want to miss this wild ride. Then Chrisitne covers a story we can't believe we hadn't heard before: Abraham Shakespeare and his tragic murder over lottery money by Dee Dee Moore. And don't forget to check out the link below to an announcement so big only one man could do it justice, but for legal purposes may or may not have actually been involved... and that's why we (don't) drink!

  • We're back with some traditional (and extremely creepy) listener ghost stories this month, boozers and shakers! Tune in to Listener Stories: Vol. 55 for a terrifying paranormal tunnel, some wild symptoms of exorcisms and to top it all off a ghost that's just super disappointed in you, potentially for playing hoop and stick. Christine also shares a terrifying tale of her own involving lightning and a ghost that traveled with her to a condo... and that's why we drink!

  • Did you want to learn science from someone who just learned it yesterday? Well, welcome to episode 220 in which we do our best to understand multiverses, black holes and spaghettification (which we promise is a real term) all because Em researched the wrong topic. But as space lovers we were enthralled with the Back Door Theory, because honestly the idea of being torn apart atom by atom is just as scary as any cryptid. Em promises to bring you the Back Rooms Theory (also not the Back Woods Theory) next week. Then Christine pays homage to early pandemic binge watching trends with the story of Joe Exotic, his escalating rivalry with fellow big cat lover Carole Baskin and a murder-for-hire ploy that's only the tip of this chaotic iceberg. Christine also gets to practice her dramatic lyric reading skills... and that's why we drink!

  • Get ready because episode 219 is a chatty one! What is a paper mâché nose doll? Who are mothman's grandchildren? We've got wild speculation on both this week and two fascinating topics: First Em takes us back into old school medium territory with the story of Helen Duncan aka Hellish Nell aka Scotland's Last Witch. It involves way more cheesecloth than you think. Then Christine covers the mysterious case of the Somerton Man aka the Tamam Shud case, which involves more secret pockets and ear measuring than you might think. We also tackle a question we know you've been anxiously waiting for us to answer: What exactly is British Vampire Condition? ...and that's why we drink!

  • Is that the voice of the wise owl in the woods? Is it the ghost of a grandma who wants to cremate her cares? Or is it Chrisitne in her old elementary school play costume trying to infiltrate a secret society? This week on episode 218, Em takes us deep into the Bohemian Grove, an exclusive club and "summer camp for presidents" with some wild allegations attached to it. Then Christine closes out her first two-parter with the conclusion of her story on Richard Ramirez, the "second-hand" nightstalker and true terror of a serial killer. We also contemplate some gossip we have to bleep out and Satan's divine intervention... and that's why we drink!

  • If you see a praying mantis while listening to this episode, cover it's ears! Because this week in episode 217, Em takes us on a deep and disturbing dive into the world of praying mantis aliens (segoo-ing from the evil dark lord mantis from Laura Clarke's story last week). Then Christine brings us her first two-parter ever with part one of heavy hitter Richard Ramirez. Also, remember to be on the lookout for large bugs in robes... and that's why we drink!

  • Does this melodious voice sound familiar? Maybe even like it was cursed by a witch in order to achieve paranormal radio stardom? That's right, we have the one and only Terry Carnation from Dark Air as our first, best (and only) guest. He's known by many names and we've heard the moniker Rainn Wilson floating around too but we firmly believe that identity theft is real, so we're hoping the latter isn't a fraudulent imposter. Happy April Fools Day! Don't forget to store your souls (NOT sperm) in a crystal pendant and wear it non-stop in case you expire in the Venice canals and have to be fished out by a gondolier (or Em's bare hands)... and that's why we drink!

    Make sure to listen to Terry's triumphant return to radio in Dark Air, premiering April 1st, 2021! You can also hear Terry on Radio Rental and explore his collection of spooky stories on VHS - both are available on all your favorite listening platforms!

  • Blessings from the satanic praying mantis! It's episode 216 and Em is taking us to space for the wild and disconcerting story of the abductions of Laura Clarke. Then Christine takes us to Cleveland to cover an extremely disturbing case, the case of the Cleveland Strangler Anthony Sowell. 

    We also discuss the recent rise in hate crimes against the AAPI community and the devastating, targeted shootings at spas in Atlanta. We'd like to provide the following resources to help combat hate crimes and support the AAPI community:

  • Today in episode 215, we're tackling the big questions, like is it Bigfoots or Bigfeet? We're taking you back to our live show in Seattle this week where Em covers the most famous cryptid of all, that's right, Washington State Monster himself, Sasquatch! Then Christine brings us the unbelievable story of the kidnapping of local 9-year-old George Weyerhaeuser and the wild logistical choices his kidnappers made. Christine might have also worn Em's underwear in your city, Seattle... and that's why we drink!

  • It's episode 214 and you know what that means... a lesson in face washing direct from Em's apartment that didn't have running water at the time of recording! Sit back, relax and let Em regale you with their post-pandemic fashion predictions followed by the creepy and sad story of the Headless Nun of New Brunswick. Then Christine takes us to Fargo to cover the brutal story of the murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind. Christine also exposes us all to art via her trenchcoat... and that's why we drink!

  • Excuse me, Spotify? We'd like to submit our podcast for a new category, that will only include us, called "Podcasts Built on a Thousand Demons". We anxiously await your response. In the meantime, Grandpapa Emothy is bringing us a wild haunting from Connecticut in the Trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, also known as the "Devil Made Me Do It" case. Then Christine takes us to England for the chilling White House Farm Murders. And in case you've ever asked that age old question, "when will I ever need to know math in the real world?", we've got an answer for you and it's apparently while telling ghost stories... and that's why we drink!
