Clip Show: We’re Not Dead Yet!

Your eyes are not deceiving you, it’s a Booze + Spirits Podcast! Almost. We have not yet returned to the recording booth, but that doesn’t mean the show isn’t on our minds, and we’re flabbergasted to see that we’re still acquiring new listeners for a show that hasn’t put out new content for a dragonfly’s age. So, to let you know that we haven’t forgotten you all, here’s another clip show of bits left from the editing bay floor, and like last time, it’s been punctuated with the chaotic tones of a French post-punk band; this time, Ultrademon! (We amuse ourselves.) Hang tight, and we hope to see you with new, actual real episodes sometime in the near future!

Good Night, and Good Luck…

It’s with a heavy heart that we have to announce that The Booze + Spirits Podcast is going to…well, let’s say ‘go into torpor’. Keeping up with things has become a pressure that isn’t always compatible with aspects of our lives, and not having to worry about deadlines rapidly escaping our grasps would be some benefit to our mental healths.

We still have at least one more episode in the pipe that has yet to be released, so we will get that one finished and out into the world. We also still have quite a library of deleted material, so we’ll occasionally trickle those out to the world as well. We also intend to occasionally stick things up here on the site as the mood grabs us, so we’re not totally abandoning things right now, just taking a break from any kind of definite recording schedule.

Nick has a couple alternate audio project ideas in mind that he’s working on–those may or may not become incorporated under the Booze + Spirits banner, depending on the appropriateness of their thematic elements. Cait, for elements I won’t directly state but are easily guessed at, won’t be drinking for the next several months, so her ability to scribe new recipes for us will definitely be hampered. Mel likes Supernatural.

So, for now, it’s a mild farewell, though we certainly hope to see you in the next incarnation as soon as we are able.

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)

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!

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!

Ep. 22 – Miners Prohibited

Show Notes

All our episodes are rocky, but this one is on purpose! Nick and Cait have returned from their adventures in Yosemite, and while out and about they’ve gained a taste for the miner’s life! Nick brings in tales of Native American legends dealing with cave-inhabiting stone giants, and Cait has tales of angry helldogs that protect ancient miners’ claims. Then Cait introduces a dry stone-fruit cocktail to relax with after a long day in the holes.

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.
