Hey Ho, Lets Go!

Hey weirdos! Welcome to a full episode dedicated to the biggest event in human history: World War 2!  We've covered stories from WWII on the show before- like Hitler's werewolf army and my home girl Betty Pack the snack!  But this week ALL of our stories are World War 2 stories and boy does it get WILD!

Ashley is joined by special guest and fan favorite of the show JOE OCHS who is a self proclaimed "Slut" and "White Dad" for WWII. Joe is going to be introducing us to yet another amazing female spy named Virginia Hall as well as a special unit of the military that was kept a secret for over forty years known as the "ghost army."  Both of which combined saved hundreds of thousands of lives.

Ashley is going to be teaching us about the origins of foo fighters (no, not Dave Grohl's band) and the many soldiers who reported seeing them over occupied Nazi territories as well as a theoretical super weapon known as "Die Glocke" or "The Bell" that may have made it's way into the United States military's hands and into a field in Kecksburg Pennsylvania in 1965...

God Bless the Allied Forces and may we always remember that it's in service to our country that we punch nazis right in their f*cking face.

A very merry unbirthday to you, weirdos!! 

This week it's time to get magical because we're entering the wonderful world of DISNEY!!  Whether you're a Disney fan or as mad as Mad Madam Mim; there will be something for you in this series.

We're joined by a very special guest, one of our all time faves SCOTT YOUNGBAUER from the hilarious podcast MOVIES THAT MADE US GAY!! 

In Part one Lauren is going to go over some of Walt's less magical moments and we try to get to the bottom of the questions: Was Walt Disney an antisemite?  Racist? Sexist?? Or just a "man of his time?"

Scott is going to be examining a very popular conspiracy theory regarding Walt's head, the movie Disney straight up STOLE, and the tragic life and death of one of our most beloved voices. 

Join us next week as we move into the PARKS side of things! 

 

Warning: This episode does have discussions of racism, sexism, antisemitism, death, drug addiction, and a few political quips.

Scare me, Seymour! Scare me!

Welcome to another edition of LISTENER GHOST STORIES!!

This week we are telling stories sent in by YOU and some internet friends and these tales are 2scary4me.

We've got ghosts, we've got past lives, we've got aliens, we've got skinwalkers-- we have it all, people!  Lauren tells us stories about meeting the devil, finding your own past life, working at a haunted daycare (again?!) and what it's like to have a very angry imaginary friend.

Ashley tells us tales about aliens saving someone's life, a ghost boy in a striped shirt, a skinwalker attempting to trick some campers, a UFO burning a man's eyes, and even having a special ability where you are able to glimpse into someones life just by touching them...

As usual WARNING: these episodes are BEST enjoyed with a set of headphones to get the full creep-tastic experience!  And there are mentions of death, mental illness, and domestic abuse as well as sound effects and music that could be triggering to some listeners.
