Happy Halloween, Weirdos!!

As usual, our Halloween special is a fan favorite- LISTENER GHOST STORIES!! This year we packed in NINE terrifying tales to give you goosebumps and a few nightmares to kick off your special, spooky weekend! 

This episode is full of shadowy beings and close encounters.  And in the end we're left wondering who the hell they are.  Are they paranormal?  Supernatural?  Inter-dimensional? Or, possibly even worse... are they completely human?  And why the HELL are they in my house!?

Turn off the lights, get under the covers, throw in a set of headphones and turn up the volume and get ready to get scared.

Good Evening, Veirdos.

I vant to talk about vampires!! And vhat I vant I get, so come vith us into the night.  Continuing our SPOOKTACULAR October this week we are sitting down with return guest, fan favorite, the expert in all things hairy, scary and full of teeth-- the amazing BILLY ROACH!! 

Billy is going to start us off by discussing the good old days when vampires were scary monsters who wanted nothing more than to hide in the shadows until they decided to rip out your throat.  

Then what the hell happened?!  When did these monstrous creatures become total sex icons?  When did LOVE get involved?  Lauren is going to walk us through that transition, what caused it, and where vampires in film went from there.

And then Ashley brings us a very special surprise at the end with a crossover of her other show ASK ME EVERYTHING!! And it's all about those fanged creatures we adore.

Blessed Be, Weirdos!

It's time to really get into spooky season, grab the broomsticks, gather 'round the cauldron, and cast a spell because we're talking WITCHCRAFT!

Our very special guest today is a green witch who you've heard on the show before-- the amazing LAURA LAREAU from our reincarnation series is sitting down with us to discuss herbalism, foraging, candle magick, the power of crystals, smudging, voodoo, working on your craft, and we may even teach you a spell or two.

(Spoiler Alert: We absolutely teach you a spell or two ;) )

Laissez les bon temps rouler, weirdos!! Bounjou!

Welcome to another Hometown Haunts- we've been here many times before- previously on Keep It Weird we've taught you about the Rougarou- a hairy wolflike beast that terrorizes children of the Bayou at Lent, Jacquez St Germain who never ate- he just drank red wine from a cup, and even Madame Delphine LaLaurie, a woman so evil her home is said to be haunted to this day, hundreds of years later.  

But today we are joined by comedian and actress JEN KOBER (American Horror Story, The Purge, Dead To Me, Treme) and we are talking ALL ABOUT the Pelican state: Louisiana!! We cover slang and dialects, food and culture, haunted hotels and courthouses, a lake that swallowed a town and some seriously spooky abandoned locations.

 

(((Apologies in advance for the mic bumps in this episode!! We were recording in a different location with some different equipment.  I know its annoying and I did my best)))

Well Hello There, Kiddies

Welcome to our annual tribute to horror writers!! It's another edition of SCARY STORIES TO TELL (JOE) IN THE DARK!!

This time around we've got four delicious tales of terror ranging from the deadliest Christmas ever to first contact with extraterrestrials!  Ashley and Joe sit in their dark, creepy apartment and share the old fashioned past-time of telling spooky stories by candlelight. As usual music and sound effects have been added and could be jarring for some listeners.  This episode is best listened to with headphones.
