Ep. 21 – [title not found]

Show Notes

It’s the last gasp before Nick and Cait head out into the wilderness for vacation, so what better way to make themselves paranoid than with a collection of stories about people who mysteriously vanished in the woods? Nick and Cait give a surface look at the very deep Missing 411 phenomenon, as Cait shares the weirdest stories of missing people she can find. Then Nick applies the Missing 411 philosophy to some more recent missing cases and gives us an account of getting lost in the forest under completely non-mysterious circumstances for context. Cait finishes things off with a drink that will put the trees themselves in your mouth and in your blood.

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!

RECIPE: Rooftop Lady

  • 1 ½ oz Dry Gin (we used Crater Lake Gin)
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • ½ oz Butterfly Simple Syrup (see below)
  • Grapefruit seltzer to top

In a collins or pint glass, combine gin, lemon juice & syrup over ice. Add grapefruit seltzer to fill glass. Give it a little stir. Garnish with a grapefruit wheel.

Butterfly Simple Syrup

Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat, add tea, and steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea leaves and return to a low boil. Add sugar and stir for until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to 30 days.
(Any butterfly pea flower tea can be used as a substitution.)
