I'm gonna let it shine!!

This week Ashley and Lauren are asking the BIG question.  What happens when we die?  We want to know where that tunnel leads.  Should we go into that brilliant, bright, beautiful light?  And who the heck is this tall, dark, handsome drink of water calling himself Jesus?

This is the first part of a two part series where we examine the scientific and spiritual aspects of DYING.  Everybody dies and thousands of people have experienced what is known as an NDE and they've been able to tell us what it's like.  This week we are focusing on LIGHT, our relationship to it, and why so many dying people see it.

Hi Weirdos!

Welcome to a sneak peek into our fabulous PATREON!!  This week Lauren and I are swamped with work, potty training, day care and prepping for our Near Death Experience series starting next week.  So instead of leaving you BORED and LONELY we are releasing a previously released Patreon Bonus episode!

This episode is very special to me because it features not one, but TWO, of my best friends in the world.  My patreon cohost Amy Hanselmann surprised me with a special guest appearance by my other best friend LEAH CAMPBELL.

Leah is a former MORTICIAN (Muahaha) and she let us pick her brain and ask her all of our burning questions about what it's like to embalm a body (Spoiler alert: Tales from the Crypt lied to me) her strangest funeral stories,  the worst body mishap, and the politics and hopeful future of the death service industry.

And to round it all out I (Ashley) also get to talk about eels!  We hope you enjoy this look into our private world and that maybe it encourages you to finally join our patreon if you were on the fence before!

Hi Weirdos!

Welcome to our favorite time of the year!! Time to tell GHOST STORIES! 
 
This is another edition of LISTENER GHOST STORIES-- where Lauren and Ashley tell each other REAL LIFE spooky stories either sent in by YOU, the listener or found on different online forums we are a part of.  
 
This time 'round we are encountering a LOT of different oddities-- ghost children, haunted sheds, astral projection, near death experiences, guardian angels, light beings, glitches in the matrix, lost time and SO much more!! 
 
Thank you to all of the wonderful weirdos who allowed us to tell your stories.  Thank you to Vivek Abishek for creating the music you hear in this episode.  Thank you to freesound dot org for supplying the sound effects.  
 
If YOU have a strange/scary/unexplainable story you'd like to hear on this show email it to us at keepitweirdpodcast at gmail dot com with Listener Ghost Stories in the subject line!

As usual, these episodes are usually best enjoyed with a pair of headphones, a warm blanket and all of the lights turned on....

Welcome to the jungle, weirdos!

This week we are leaving the human world and entering the ANIMAL KINGDOM!  It's been a while since we had an animal/nature focused episode and theres just TOO MUCH crazy going on out there for us to not bring it to your ears.

This week Ashley is joined by a very special cohost- his first appearance in season six- HANDSOME JOE!! 

Ashley and Joe share a myriad of animal studies, news, behaviors and discoveries that you may have never heard about!! From wolves to chimpanzees, whales with accents to blood spitting lizards, bugs, cats, shrimp and even rhinoceri - we leave no paw unturned!  Join us for a PANDEMONIUM of parrots, an ARMY of frogs and so much m-roar!

H i  w e i r d o s,

you know that feeling when you get a rush of nostalgia but you're also creeped out?  When the hairs stand up on the back of your neck but you aren't in any danger?  Ever get goosebumps thinking about a dark school hallway lined with lockers?

YEAH SAME!! Today we're continuing our discussion on weirdly haunted locations and Ashley is starting us off with the concept of LIMINAL SPACES.  Hallways, rest stops, empty offices, abandoned malls, hell- even bathrooms.  Theres just something about them that feel off...

And Lauren takes over to share some more haunted places that just should NOT be haunted.  K-Marts, Toys R Us, skyscrapers, grocery stores and even malls filled with strange activity.. for.. some.. reason.

Get ready to feel creeped out every where you go!
