Do your conversations kill the party? Do you find yourself getting "that look" due to your extensive knowledge about turn of the century asylums? Have you ever wondered if there is a market for human skin books? If so then we are the podcast for you! We are pulling the dark things out from the shadows and throwing them into the spot light, to be talked about while we sprinkle in some comedy and cursing. We are not making fun of these topics, rather, we are laughing in the face of the dark out of sheer bullheaded defiance. We make the bold move and look up the stuff that you don't want in your browser history for plausible deniability if no other reason. Because with us, you might be disturbed, but you're not alone.
