Episode 13 – It’s Britneys (plural), Bitch!

Show Notes

What do Billy Ray Cyrus, Joan Rivers, and Britney Spears have in common? If you said a restraining order on us, you’re not wrong, but, also, encounters with ghosts! This episode is all about celebrity ghosts encounters, so we’re looking into Billy Ray Cyrus’s best phantom friend, Joan Rivers’s adventures in ghostbusting, and the haunted house that may have tormented both Britney Spears AND Brittany Murphy. Plus, we kind of sort of invent a drink last second on the air!

Episode 12 – Not About Wrestling

Show Notes

It’s April Fool’s Day, and the gloves are off! Nick is coming in hot with a celebrated trickster spirit from Wisconsin, Cait preys on Nick’s fears of duende with tales of the Saci, and they both work to screw with each other where they can, as is the custom of the holiday. Cait brings in a traditional Brazilian drink fit for an evil dwarf (eventually), and we take a swing at fictional horror story podcasts (YOU know we love you!).

Afterwards, Cait discusses some of her own haunted restaurant experiences, and creates a spooky yet feminine take on the classic Cosmopolitan.

Episode 10 – Lizzo and the Giant Otter

Show Notes

Happy Amateur Night! In this episode, Nick and Cait celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a couple of Emerald Isle tales. First up is the ghostly denizens of Malahide Castle, then the story of the fierce aquatic cryptid, the Dobhar-chú. After that, we present a bright and fruity St. Patty’s cocktail alternative to green beer and stout shot-bomb drinks. Éirinn go Brách!

We got research about the Dobhar-chú from all over the internet, but we want to give a special shout-out to In The Dark Air for having a write-up way more extensive than anything we did! Check it out!

More Dobhar-chú goodness: The Creature Codex stated one for Pathfinder tabletop games. Very cool!

Episode 009 – A Haunting in Cognac

Show Notes

In this episode, Nick and Cait discuss two of the biggest and most controversial figures in the world of the paranormal–ghost hunters, demonologists, and psychics Ed and Lorraine Warren. We look at how the Warrens got their start, and at the cases that influenced the core movies of the Warren-verse, The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2. Then, just to make sure no bridge goes unburned, they create a cognac cocktail to remind us of the Warrens’ best and worst moments.

Episode 008 – Rheeming Dickerson

Show Notes

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, love is in the air, and Nick finally followed through on his threats to go looking for sex ghosts. In this episode, we take a look first at the ‘Lady in Red’ phenomenon, then focus on one in particular, Alice Rheem, the specter of Moran Manor on Puget Sound’s Orcas Island. Nick captures some probably-not-EVP’s, Cait eats a lot of french fries, and we present a whiskey-based Valentine’s drink sure to knock the socks (and other clothing articles) off your special someone!

Episode 006 – Macomb Smokeshow

Episode Notes

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and where there’s fire, there’s the McDonald siblings. In this episode, Nick and Cait have turned their eyes to stories of supernatural smoke and fire this week, as we visit a fiery poltergeist (feuergeist?) in Illinois and a witch’s tree in North Carolina that refused to burn down. All this, plus smokey beverages and feet discussions!

You can find the recipe for the Macomb Smokeshow here.

Episode 005 – Christmas Special 2020

Episode Notes

Holiday tidings to you all! Once upon a time, it was traditional to gather family and friends together on Christmas Eve and share tales of ghosts and spirits to scare and delight each other, a tradition that sorely needs to make a come back in our opinion!

So in this special episode, join Nick and Cait for a classic Victorian Christmas Eve, where we chill the air with tales of ghostly fur trappers, haunted hot springs, and a ghost named ‘Daddy’. It’s a double-length episode! That means Cait runs out of alcohol, Nick does NOT, and chaos and over-sharing ensue.

Unfortunately, the Tom & Jerry Batter talked about in this episode didn’t come together in time to have the recipe published along-side the episode (stay tuned, we WILL post it in the future). But, being the holidays, we’ve included some additional recipes (not always of the drink variety!) to make up for the loss, as well as because, hey, it’s Christmas!

Episode 004 – The Hair of the Camel

Episode Notes

In this episode, we investigate the legend of The Red Ghost, a demonic beast that terrorized the American Southwest in the late 19th century. From there, things get tangential as we discuss camelcide, ghost miner role-call, and how to properly cook your wine.

*Technical Note: Again, we had some serious audio problems on Nick’s side during the recording of some segments, and we apologize. We guarantee that problem has been totally ironed out for future episodes. (Guarantee does not extend to future technical problems. Void where prohibited.)
