Did I spell "thieves" right?! That's a tough word. This week are continuing our edition of Hometown Haunts CANADA! But it turns out not all Canadians are polite and it sure is a lot darker now that DJ is gone...
This time 'round we're covering Canadian true crime! This episode is full of disturbing topics and listener discretion is advised. Lauren is covering Canadian serial killer Wayne Clifford Boden whose fetish gave him the moniker "The Vampire Rapist."
Ashley is covering the Saskatoon freezing deaths which is a part of a bigger phenomenon in Canada known as "starlight tours" where police officers pick up indigenous people for minor crimes and drive them several miles out of town and leave them in the freezing cold temperatures, sometimes to die.
As I said before, this episode is particularly serious and we cover some pretty sensitive topics. Rape, murder, mutilation, the abuse of indigenous people and police brutality. It leads to a brief discussion about the meaning of ACAB and even the murder of George Floyd. If these are topics that upset you, or topics that you don't wish to hear about we suggest you skip this one!
Welcome to another edition of HOMETOWN HAUNTS. This time we're heading North. WAY North. Ok, not THAT North. We're traveling to the land of Wayne Gretzky and poutine. America's Hat. Canuck central. That's right, we're headed to CANADA-eh!
Not only that, we also have a very special guest for today's episode. You may have seen him on America's Got Talent or maybe you caught one of his appearances on CONAN-- joining us to talk about his home country is stand up comedian DJ DEMERS!
DJ shares with us the things he had to change about himself when he moved from Canada to the US, some of the weirdest adjustments he had to make in regards to slang, and shares some very funny insights on how many ghosts he may have ignored while sleeping without his hearing aids.
Lauren teaches us about the most HAUNTED places in Canada including the Banff Springs Hotel, the Ottowa Jail Hostel and the Screaming Tunnel.
Ashley finishes us off by telling the story of one of the most substantiated close encounters in history-- known as the Falcon Lake Incident.
Make sure you check out DJ on instagram (@djdemers) and YouTube (www.youtube.com/djdemers) and listen to his podcasts Definitely DJ & DJ and Alex and DJ Watch a Doc on iTunes and Spotify!
Welcome to Karma Storage & Stairs! The place to get all your karma, storage and stairs!! This is sort of a Helter Skelter episode- we are covering two separate topics and none of it is related at all.
This week Lauren is going to be teaching us about some of the most horrific, disgusting, strange and in one case- lucky- storage unit discoveries! And we also give tips on how to do better at crimes - so if you're a blossoming criminal make sure you tune in for that.
Ashley is going over some misconceptions she's been seeing a lot of in the paranormal/true crime/spirituality community as she teaches us the TRUE meaning of "karma" and debunks a very famous modern urban legend that's sure to leave a few listeners kicking rocks in disappointment on their way home.
Have you seen these men, weirdos?
Welcome to PART TWO of our series on MISSING PEOPLE!! Last week we told you some stories that maybe made you give the local lake a side eye... This week we're keeping you out of the mountains!
Lauren is covering the story of a Chicago man who moved to Colorado during a mid-life crisis and opening an antique store whose previous owner went missing... just to go missing himself...
And Ashley is covering the tragic story of the Yuba County Five, a group of men with a range of developmental disabilities who seemingly took a wrong turn in 1978 that ended in their demise. Or did they?
Obviously this is one of our darker episodes so it needs to be said again-- WARNING: This episode contains foul language, and disturbing topics including murder, suicide, starvation, as well as mental disorders and developmental disabilities.
This episode features a PROMO for the podcast MOVIES THAT MADE US GAY-- one of our favorites of all time.
