  • Surprise! We have a fun bonus mini crossover episode for you today! We chatted with Hannah Smith of The Opportunist podcast, one of our favorites for mystery and intrigue. Tune in as Hannah shares with us a very strong candidate for our infamous phrase "pillar to killer" aka Robert Courtney, a pharmacist who scammed millions by diluting chemotherapy medications. He's also the focus of The Opportunist, season two! Our conclusion: stay a pillar and stop murdering people with cancer... and that's why we drink! 

    Check out the new season of The Opportunist for the full, in-depth story of Robert Courtney. And be sure to check out the second part of this crossover HERE on The Opportunist feed, where we share our own take on stories of opportunists with Hannah!

Em takes us down under for the Westall UFO sightings at a school in Australia that lands some kids in detention and others permanently disappeared?? #babsforpresident Then Christine bums us out again with the gut-wrenching story of wrongfully convicted Ronnie Long and the broken justice system that kept him incarcerated for so many years.

  • 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!

  • It's episode 224! And the Vaccination Trifecta are finally out of quarantine and visiting family so we're super excited to bring you our very first live show from Christine's home state of Ohio! We had such a blast in Columbus and covered incredible stories: Em took us about an hour down the road to the Mansfield Reformatory. Then Christine takes us 30 minutes in the opposite direction for the intriguing unsolved case of the Circleville Letter Writer. And we won a Webby! We're SO thrilled.

  • 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!
