Episode 30: Slenderman

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, Y'ALL. In a completely unrelated subject, we finally make due on a long-promised epsiode and discuss everyone's favorite internet monster, Slenderman. Join us as we talk about his origins, his design, and media it managed to spawn.


Episode 29: The Beast of Gévaudan

In this (very late) episode, we travel to France right after the Seven Year War to solve a long-standing mystery (that is really not that big of a mystery). Who or what was attacking the lone people in the French countryside? Join us as we try and follow the many steps taken to save people from what is essentially a big, big animal. No spoilers, but it was definitely not supernatural. BONUS: #OtterWatch2018, or the real beast appears in Vancouver.


Episode 28: The Adlet and other Inuit Myths

We travel north (really north) to discuss many of the different myths of the Inuit culture. We discuss a children's book, the origin of European people, and some really old spoilers for Full Metal Alchemist. Oh, and dog fucking. We talk way too much about dog fucking.


Episode 27: South Asian ghosts

Ghosts and spirits are a big part of Bengali culture. Come join us as we learn about the bhoot's love for fish, their nasal voices, and the many different and specific kinds (including one that lives in its car). Also: we open by discussing one of the top ten anime betrayals.


Episode 26: Witches, part II; TV, Movies, and Media

In this second part, we move away from the bummers and stay in the safe camp of TV and Movies. Why did Samantha ever agree to not use magic in Bewitched? Will the Charmed and Sabrina remakes be as good as we hope they will be? Does Practical Magic have one plot too many? And who gave Roald Dahl the right to write such a scary book? Plus: We almost forgot about Harry Potter.


Episode 25: Witches, part I; History and Around the World

"What else is a woman but a foe to friendship-! They are evil, lecherous, vain, and lustful. All witchcraft comes from carnal lust, which is, in women, insatiable." -The Malleus Maleficarum Join us for a bummer of an anniversary episode, as we discuss witches throughout history and around the world. This episode has it all - murder, witchcraft, torture, and a stark reminder that women have and continue to be treated... well, you'll hear.


Episode 24: The Dyatlov Pass Incident

In 1959, nine Soviet university students died in suspicious ways while hiking the treacherous trails of the Ural mountains. Decades later, it remains one of the largest unsolved mysteries. Join us as we mark one year of this podcast by discussing the many theories thrown around behind this famous case (Spoiler Alert: It's NOT aliens).


Episode 23: Creepypasta & Fears

This episode starts as another creepypasta anthology, but it is quickly derailed by our love of RustyQuill's The Magnus Archives. Join us as we read some internet stories and use TMA's categorization of fears to figure out what makes them unsettling. Stories: The Keyhole: Whatever you do, don't look in the keyhole of the locked room. Psychosis: Can you trust the people you are interacting with through your phone and computer? Are there people at all? Or is there something more sinister at...


Episode 22: Banshee and White Ladies

For this episode, we focus on banshees and white ladies. Come listen as we discuss what is a banshee and what they do, why you should never bother a woman washing clothes at a river (or maybe you should?), and how to break into the "crying at funerals" industry. Bonus: who the fuck is Sean Cassidy, and other loud comic book character discussions. WARNING: This episode features some joking discussion about suicide by jumping. Please be mindful to yourself and only listen if you're comfortable...


Episode 21: Dryads

Join us as we travel back to ancient Greece and go green discussing the ancient dryads! In this episode, we discuss our Greek gods phases (or lack of one), read stories about nymphs, and as usual, segway into many unrelated subjects.


Ep. 20: Sailor Superstitions

On our 20th episode, we take off to the sea (again!) and look at some of the different beliefs sailors had about going off into the ocean. This episode, we will answer questions such as: is whistling bad or good? What is the one fruit you should never have on a boat? And can you outrun your destiny if your name is Jonah?


Episode 19: Ravens and Crows

We dive into the natural world and look at a couple of our favorite birds. From messengers to gods to tricksters, corvids have played many different roles for many cultures. Which one is your favorite? Also in this episode: the dynamics of Thor's family, as well as the worst possible description of bird sex acts. You have been warned.


Episode 18: Mermaids, part II

This week, we continue our exploration into mermaids by going a little more modern. We explore the classic tale of The Little Mermaid, as well as take a peep at mermaids in horror, and how many mermaid shows does Australia really need? Bonus: the best segway into fish sex you will ever hear. PS; We are aware that there's some clipping happening. We're in the process of checking up on the mic, and seeing if it was a one-session issue, or something bigger. Thanks for your patience!


Episode 17: Mermaids, part I

In part 1 of this two-parter, we get an in-depth look at the origin stories for mermaids. When did creatures, usually women with fish tails, become part of our collective knowledge? Who created them? Also, a long discussion on Disney Villain songs, and why Odysseus is a fuckboy.


Episode 16: Creepypasta Anthology I

In our first story anthology, we go over 4 different creepypasta that have been circulating the internet over the last few years. Anansi's Goatman: A group of friends and family get together for a camping trip. However, when they do a head-count, there's always an extra person.
