Hungry Like the Boy Who Cried Wolf

1/9/2019
More
Is that a wolf growling, or just your stomach? Don't lie to us now--you know nobody likes a person who cries wolf. If we're being honest here, this week Sarah & Megan talk about your favorite fable from Aesop all about a young Boy Who Cried Wolf. And because everyone loves a wolf pack (even if it's just a party of two, maybe three), we pair it with wannabe jailhouse informant Greg Scarpa Jr., whose cries of his own have kept him in prison, despite potential ties to 9/11 and the Oklahoma City...

Creature Feature: Wendigo

1/2/2019
More
New Year, pretty much the same podcast (and that's a good thing, we think!) Kick off 2019 the right way--with a healthy dose of folklore and maybe just a bit of spooky cannibalism (ok, who are we kidding...a lot of cannibalism). For this week's creature feature, Sarah welcomes us into 2019 with the help of perhaps one of winter's scariest demons: the Wendigo. If you've ever thought about tasting human flesh, now is definitely not the right time. You've been warned. If you like our podcast,...

In the Land of Girls and Monsters

12/12/2018
More
Just because you really want something, it doesn't mean you can have it--especially when we're talking about people, people. In this week's episode, Sarah and Megan take a look at the OG version of a childhood classic, Beauty and the Beast. And speaking of beauties and monsters, we take a look at the famous 1991 kidnapping of Jaycee Lee Dugard by Phillip and Nancy Garrido.

Creature Feature: Krampus

12/5/2018

Ho! Ho! Ho—oh no! 'Tis the season for candy canes, sparkling lights, and maybe a beating or two (if you've been naughty). You probably know all about Santa, the plump guy who rewards our goodness with candy and video games. But this week, Sarah takes a look at Krampus, the half-goat, half-demon anti-Santa that likes to kidnap naughty children and eat them for breakfast. ...Are you worried?

Beware: Pies May Contain Human Flesh

11/28/2018
More
Might we interest you in some vegan empanadas? If you're listening to this episode while hungry, you may lose your appetite...because this week, Sarah and Megan explore cannibalism! And pies! and murder! While arguably NOT a fairy tale, we take a look at the origins of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett's (not beef) meat pies. And just in case that didn't leave a bad enough taste in your mouth, we also take a look at the real-life Brazilian Cannibal Jorge Beltrao Negromonte. YUM! If you like our...

Creature Feature: Big Head

11/21/2018

We have a lot to be thankful for this year--the biggest thing being, perhaps, the fact that we don't have to worry about Big Head. This week, Megan tells us the story of Big Head, also known as Flying Head. This featured creature from Wyandot and Iroquois mythology is a cannibalistic monster afraid of acorns.

Adventures in Necrophilia (Not to be Confused with Romance)

11/13/2018
More
Is romance really dead? If you really love someone, don't sleep with their corpse (or presumed corpse, for that matter). In this week's episode, Sarah & Megan explore fantastic adventures in necrophilia, reminding you that obsession does NOT equal romance. For our Fairy Tale, we take a look at the Italian classic, "Sun, Moon, and Talia" and how yes, even "dead" women can still (sometimes) get pregnant. And for our true crime story, we hold back our vomit as we question Carl Tanzler's...

Introducing Creature Features! The world is full of monsters, myths, and legendary creatures. Every other week we'll be exploring the horrifying, the weird, the paranormal, and the unseen creatures that lurk in the shadows of our mind. This week, we take a trip down to classical Greek Mythology and sing with the fishes--err, Sirens. Half women, half bird, all deadly.

Are you ready to get spooked for the very first episode of Fairy Tall Tales?! Sarah and Megan kick things off by talking about marriage--and how apparently, sometimes divorce isn't the only option when you're not happy with your relationship. For this week's fairy tale, we take a look at some questionable facial hair and manipulative marriage tactic's in Charles Perrault's Bluebeard. This bloody tale is perfectly accompanied by a true crime classic: Nannie Doss AKA Lady Bluebeard. Thanks...
