Ep. 28 – Hominid Battle Royale

Show Notes

It’s Thanksgiving here at The Booze + Spirits Podcast, and we celebrate it like most Americans–by being painfully unaware of the plight of Native Americans and having a big blow-out fight with family members. After a few tales of Native American lore, Nick goads Cait into storming out. Afterwards, Nick and Mel ‘go for a walk with the cousins’ and ramble on about proto-man behavior including Bigfoot, Wendigos, and Facebook. Like a Thanksgiving dinner, it goes on too long and makes you wonder what else you could be doing right now if you didn’t feel so guilty obligated. Happy Turkey Day!

Ep. 27 – Dalrymple in Time

Show Notes

Put on your tam, grab your bagpipes, and wear your kilt commando style, because we’re headed to the highlands for this episode of The Booze + Spirits Podcast! We’re discussing the spirits of Scotland in this episode, ‘Mel!’ gives us a tour of a creepy castle and its green lady, Nick rants about government betrayal on a ghostly glen, and Cait finishes our journey by warming our tired bones with a pastoral hot toddy.

Ep. 26 – Call Her DADA

Show Notes

It’s our one-year anniversary! One year of Booze + Spirits, and despite all that experience, Mel shows up late, Cait pulls her conversation cues from Cards Against Humanity, and Nick talked into the cold mic while the hot mic was in another part of the room again (sorry for the potato quality). For this momentous event we decided on a episode touching some of the darker, nastier denizens of the paranormal world (the ghost ones, not douchey or pretentious ghost hunters), and some ways to keep yourself from being caught in their webs. So sit in for an extra long, sub-quality version of Defense Against the Dark Arts class, and at the end Cait will send you home with a recipe for a Bloody Mary that doubles as a protection spell!

Like we mention in the podcast, Michelle Bellanger is one of our favorite sources for information on psychic and magical arts. You can find her books through her website, though some of our favorites are listed below:
The Ghost Hunter’s Survival Guide
The Psychic Vampire Codex
The Dictionary of Demons

The Phillip Experiment – Artificial creation of a spirit entity (see also tulpas)

RECIPE: Bloody Orangey Margey

  • 2 oz Silver Tequila
  • 2 oz Blood Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz charcoal agave syrup
  • Juice of 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until mixed and chilled. Strain into a fresh glass of ice. We recommend a salt or Tajin rim.

Charcoal Agave Syrup

Combine 1 cup agave syrup with 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Carefully mix in 1 tsp activated charcoal (available at your local health food store), bring to a low boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

MEDICAL DISCLAIMER:  Activated charcoal can affect how your medications and supplements work.  Ask your doctor if you’re on prescriptions.  We’re lushes, not medical professionals 🙂

Ep. 25 – Sphincter Obsession

Show Notes

In a Hail Mary pass attempt at keeping our themes fresh at just-less-than-a-year into the podcast, we decided to talk about cursed films in this episode! Cait tells us about a movie that was so (rightfully) cursed that it never got finished, despite several attempts. Then Nick does it all for Damian by covering the bizarre circumstances behind-the-scenes on the set of 1976’s The Omen. Finish it all off with a demonic-looking margarita, and way, WAY too much about sphincters, and you have a Booze + Spirits Podcast!

RECIPE: Col. Taylor’s Medicinal Sweet Tea

Combine everything but the sweet tea in a shaker and muddle with ice. Dump into a highball and top with sweet tea (below).   We only used about 2 oz, but feel free to upgrade to a bigger glass and add more “tea”.

This sweet tea is between a sweet tea and a syrup.  To make the tea, we brewed 2 bags of black tea in a 12oz mug of hot water.  After the bags have steeped for a few minutes, but before the water cools, add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir until fully dissolved. Allow to cool before making your boozy treat.

RECIPE: Wyoming Death Ship

Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Dry shake (no ice) for about 30-45 seconds, add ice, shake  again until chilled.  Strain into something pretty.

Ep. 24 – The Spirits and Booze Podcast

Show Notes

In this Chaotic Neutral episode, we go looking for alcohol spirits, and spend quite a bit of time in distilleries as a result. First, Nick goes on a brief tour of Scotch distilleries. Then Cait heads back stateside for a look at the ghosts haunting Buffalo Trace Distillery. Finally, “Mel!” returns to give us look at Japanese Shojo spirits WITHOUT looking at them through the lens of The CW’s Supernatural.

Ep. 23 – Sink or Swim Tryouts

Show Notes

New and improved, we’ve managed to squeeze 50% more hosts in this episode! Cait wanted to talk about boats this episode, so our good friend “Mel!” joins Nick to talk about haunted naval vessels, then Cait shares her much anticipated boat story (which we’re pretty sure she’s never heard before). Round the episode out with a sailor enticing dark rum drink, promos no one paid for, and a more than normal chunk of chicanery!
