Hey Weirdos!

Wow, six years huh?  That's a long time, a lot of episodes and a TON of topics.  In those six years new information has come to light, DNA evidence has given us some answers, robots have evolved and in some cases-- scary situations got even scarier.

This week Ashley and Lauren are revisiting six stories that they shared on past episodes that have NEW information!

We get to find the identity of multiple Jane Does AND the famous Somerton Man (Taman Shud case) we check in on SOPHIA the robot to see what the heck her android ass has been up to, we hear from scientists who prove that a very famous theory in the Dytlov Pass Incident COULD be possible and we check in to see if the United States military has started taking sexual assault cases a little more seriously (Spoiler alert: they haven't.)

This episode was a lot of fun, it was really cool to revisit old stories we shared on the show and finally get some answers... and in some cases... even more questions

Join us next week as we FALL into OCTOBER

Let's all go to the lobby, weirdos!

This week is ALL ABOUT MOVIES!! A fun Crossover episode with our podcast from another broadcast- Movies that Made Us Gay!

Movies that Made Us Gay is ALL about the films we watched growing up that contributed to who we became as adults.  So it's only appropriate that we take the time to celebrate the movies that made us WEIRD!

This week Lauren is joined by Scott and Pete as they revisit three 80's movies that in some way contributed to the strange individuals they grew into.

Pete starts us off with 1989's UHF starring Weird Al Yankovich, Scott is bringing us 1981's Roar - a film that had more problems on set than you could possibly imagine, and Lauren is taking about Parents (1989) which marked possibly the first- but definitely not the last- time that Randy Quaid scared the crap out of us.

Grab your popcorn, put on your coziest socks and pop that tape into that old dusty VHS player- it's time to get WEIRD!

Grab your bamboo sticks, weirdos!

It's time for another episode for the LADIES!  This is part two of our WOMEN IN HISTORY series where we cover stories about women that we didn't hear about in our history or social studies courses that PROBABLY should have been covered.

Joined once again by Miss Patreon herself- Amy Hanselmann- this week Lauren is starting us off with some FEMALE VIGILANTES!  It's not often that you see women taking revenge on a large scale such as this and why we had never heard of these bad bitches is beyond me.  First up is Diana the Bus Driver Hunter out of Juarez Mexico and yes you did hear that right.  Sick and tired of all of the attacks on women in her city she took it upon herself to fight back in the deadliest way and made men on public transportation think twice about putting their hands on a woman. 

And we learn about the Gulabi Gang out of Northern India; a fierce group of women wearing HOT HOT PINK saris and carrying bamboo sticks (they hurt worse than they sound, just ask Ashley) to hunt down men who have participated in domestic abuse, child marriages, and ensuring that women and children's human rights are protected and provided.

And Ashley brings us home with the incredible story of Mileva Maric, a Serbian physicist and mathematician who you've never heard of-- but you've ABSOLUTELY heard of her work.  She was the first wife, and truly the other half, of Albert Einstein. She turned in the papers.. but why was it only her husband's name written at the top?

Guten Tag, weirdos.  Are you ready to burn your bra and kill some Nazis?

This week we are revisiting our hit series from 2020 - the SNACK PACK IS BACK as we learn about some AMAZING WOMEN from history that our history books just forgot to mention.

Ashley and Lauren are joined by Keep It Beard host AMY HANSELMANN as we discover some ladies who changed the world.  This week we're focusing on some badass bitches from WWII- Truus and Freddie Oversteegen who, for lack of a better term, seduced Nazis and traitors to their death in the Netherlands.  They joined forces with the famous "girl with the red hair" Hannie Schaft- a skilled assassin who was brutally tortured and put to death after spending years on Hitlers "most wanted" list.

And Amy brings us the story of Irena Sendler-- who saved TWICE AS MANY jews from death than Oskar Schindler, and yet, has no mainstream movie.  Irena did whatever she had to do to protect Jewish people, and especially Jewish children, from the Nazi forces- saving over 2,500.

We hope this series educates you and INSPIRES you to be a troublemaker and do what is right, even in the face of certain death.  Raise badass women who all grow up to know Hannie Schaft's last words to her executioner: "I shoot better."
