Ep. 30: Slagpot Wormwood and Em’s Nomadic Clown Life

Sloss Furnaces

Episode 30 doesn’t disappoint. It’s quite a doozy, so don’t say we didn’t warn you. Christine shows off her (very limited) knowledge of the steel industry when Em tells her about the Sloss Furnaces, an extremely terrifying and haunted landmark in Birmingham, AL. Meanwhile, Em is haunted by more disembodied feet and Christine’s lame dad jokes.

Sylvia Likens

Then, Christine finally bites the bullet and tells the tragic tale of Sylvia Liken’s death. (Don’t blame me – you guys asked for it!) All we can say is, you think it can’t get any worse, and then it does.

And here’s the photo my dad found in a steel mill in the Czech Republic and sent to my entire extended family. Odds are you didn’t know me when I was 13, but I can guarantee you the resemblance is uncanny.

Which one’s the real Christine?!

Ep. 25: Ghostly Frenemies and Alcala-ism

We’re officially 25 episodes deep! Em tells us about all the ghosts of the White House. Christine senses a large hat when Honest Abe shows up, and a naked Winston Churchill gives him a run for his money.

Christine tells the story of the mo-fo Rodney Alcala, also known as the Dating Game Killer. This one sounds like a made-for-TV movie, but we promise it’s all real. And that’s why we drink!

Ep. 20: Fun Times in the Body Chute and Em’s Hairy Torso

You’ve asked, you’ve begged, you’ve pleaded…and we finally succumbed to your requests – episode 20 features the one and only Waverly Hills Sanitorium (not Sanitarium, we checked) as well as a pretty terrible guy named Gregory Scott Hale. In this episode we ask the important questions: Is it more acceptable to eat people if they’ve been cooked? Where can I find Jesus the biggest? What’s so traumatizing about a torso?

Perhaps most importantly, we get our **FIRST FAN MAIL** but our excitement quickly devolves into concern when we can’t decode its mysterious symbols. (For real guys, if we go missing, blame this anonymous person in Utah.)

Christine also rescues a bug, but Em doesn’t approve of that segment. And that’s why we drink!

Ep. 19: A Great View of the DMV and There’s No Such Thing as a Fun Best Friend Story

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Podbean, or wherever else great podcasts are found.

Welcome to episode 19, in which we learn that there’s no such thing as a fun best friend murder. PLUS, we have our first-ever guest! Em’s childhood best friend and longtime paranormal partner Deirdre tells a kick-ass ghost story about the Hilltop House Hotel, giving Em and Christine the chance to gasp simultaneously (this is a rare experience, folks). Then, Christine tells Em and Deirdre about teenage murderer Christine Paolilla, who had the fun nickname “psycho” and may or may not have ripped her weave off amidst her high-school angst.

Ep. 18: An Even Worse Eyeball Story and the Adventures of Captain Midnight

Episode 18 is out now! Listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Podbean, or wherever else great podcasts are found!

DISCLAIMER: this episode is very graphic and disturbing. Em must have known Christine was tired of being the bad guy, because she went NEXT LEVEL with her disturbing story. No joke, DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN LISTEN TO EPISODE 18. And if you do, at least put some money aside for their future therapy sessions.  (Oh and if you’re wondering, this week’s topics are the LaLaurie Mansion and the Craigslist Killer.)
