For auld lang syne, weirdos!
 
The time has come for our season five finale and if you think you are sadder than we are you are MISTAKEN.  Before you get to worryin', we will be back in a few months.  In the meantime, before we go we needed to wrap up the ol' 2021.  A shit-heap of a year that pulled no punches- it was FULL of murder, mischief and mayhem.  
 
Ashley and Lauren are joined by VERY SPECIAL GUEST HANDSOME JOE as they cover the true crime, strange news, conspiracies, and all around weird stories that occurred in the last eleven months.  From Gabby Petito to Astroworld, learning a thing our two about your roots to cocaine hippos, and exciting science to hollow earths- this week we cover it all.
 
Thank you all so much for supporting us this year and all the years past.  We can't wait to see what 2022 brings us.  After all-- IT'S GOTTA BE OUR YEAR!  RIGHT?!  ARE YOU THERE GOD, IT'S ME YA GIRL?!

Frights! Camera! HACKtion Weirdos!! 

We are once again covering HORROR MOVIES on this beloved, strange podcast of ours and this time we're doing it with a twist.  We're taking three horror movies we love and discussing real life true events that may have inspired them.  

Ashley & Lauren are joined by horror movie director ISAAC RUTH as we dive into some very scary REAL events.

Ashley starts us off with 2015's THE VVITCH and we discuss what exactly happened in Europe between the 1400s and the 1700's (and the infamous event in Salem, MA) when so many men and women were murdered for "witchcraft."

Then Isaac takes over to discuss 1975's JAWS and why in the world so many of us are so, so scared of the oceans that cover most of our planet.

And Lauren finishes us off with 2003's WRONG TURN and we talk about the real life terror that is incest and inbreeding.

Grab your popcorn and your favorite pair of 3D glasses and meet us on the couch under the covers for some REEL HORROR.

Hey Weirdos!

It's time for another check-in don't ya think?  Last time we had one of our talks it was because I was feeling lost and hopeless after the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain.

This time I'm coming around because I've had friends from all walks of life coming to me in the last few weeks telling me that they are experiencing such debilitating anxiety (some for the first time in their lives) and they don't know how to deal with it and they need help.  

I can only assume that if my inner circle is experiencing this... some of you have to be, too.  So this is just a simple reminder that you aren't the only one feeling this way and that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel.  

Just be kind and hang on.  We love you.

Don't let the bedbugs bite, Weirdos!

Welcome to the long awaited DREAMS episode!! What the hell are dreams anyway?  Where do they come from?  What is happening to our bodies while we are dreaming?  Why do we dream at all?!

We attempt to answer these questions and more as Ashley and Lauren sit down with the host of GOTH YEARBOOK Eric Wynn!

Ashley starts us off with the science and history of dreams and we try and get to the bottom of why we go to strange places with strange people every night.

Eric takes us through his journey with LUCID DREAMING and we discuss how to gain control while inside your dream and what benefits it could have for your waking life!

And Lauren finishes it off by teaching us a bit about NIGHT TERRORS- how they are different from average run of the mill nightmares, where they come from and why they happen.
