Hi Weirdos!

Welcome to our very first mental health episode!  We've always wanted to dive into psychology & mental health and our hilarious guest, stand up comedian Justin Foster was itching to discuss sociopaths so we jumped at the opportunity to discuss PERSONALITY DISORDERS!


This is an episode we've always been interested in, but extra cautious to record. There are a lot of stigmas involved in mental disorders and chatting about them on a show dedicated to all things "weird" was something we had to be very cognizant of.  The three of us all have experiences with psychological disorders and it was really special to be able to sit down and discuss them, alongside personality disorders this week!

In part one we are talking about Schizotypal personality disorder (STPD) and Paranoid personality disorder (PPD.) The history of the disorder, the symptoms, the treatments, and even some cases where the disorder took over and things went a little too far.

Next week Justin will be telling us about sociopaths and Lauren will be getting into the controversial topic of Dissociative Disorder (multiple personalities.)

Hi Weirdos! 

Welcome to PART TWO of our WEREWOLF episode!  Ashley is joined once again by her fill-in cohost JOEY and our hilarious, knowledgeable guest Billy Roach as they chat about the furriest monsters out there!

Last week Billy taught us everything we could possibly know about werewolves and we were in RARE form, let me tell you.  Maybe it was a full moon?

This week we're taking it a little more seriously, Ashley is going to be talking all about werewolves in pop culture and the different ways that lycanthropy is represented in film and television!  Werewolves have always been a great way to mirror society and some of the issues we don't feel comfortable talking about.  From sexual orientation, puberty, race, and even STDs! And we finish off the episode chatting about SKINWALKERS!! Those scary f*ckers.

Join us for another drool filled romp and make sure you get those sticks oiled!

Aaaaaooooooo, Weirdos!

Are you ready to learn about Werewolves?!  This week Ashley is joined by the monster man himself, Mr. Southern Vampire Billy Roach!  Billy is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to the mythos of vampires and trust me when I say he did NOT disappoint when it comes to werewolves either.

Billy and Ashley are joined by their hype man, Handsome Joe (aka DJ Jazzy Joe) as Billy teaches us all about where the legends began, the different versions of lore from around the world, lycanthropy as a disease, how to kill a werewolf, how to *become* a werewolf, and so much more.

Join us next week when Ashley dives into werewolves in pop culture and how the beast has mirrored society throughout the decades.

In the meantime... oil your sticks.

Welcome, weirdos, to part TWO of our TIME TRAVEL episode!

As you know, last week Joe taught us about spacetime, how gravity, speed, and velocity work together to influence "time," wormholes & black holes, and so much more.

This week is all about theoretical science.  Ashley is going to be teaching the crew about Time Paradoxes and the different things that would and wouldn't be possible when it came through traveling through time.  Most importantly, the things we'd have to worry about if time travel were possible.

And as for our guest this week- we are joined once again by Madigan Haggerty of  Your Angry Neighborhood Feminist (podcast) and she ventured to the darkest corners of the world wide web to find some REAL (?) life time travelers to learn their stories! 

Have a blast, y'all.  And make sure you grab your towel!
