Who knew Hell was so fashionable?!

Hey weirdos, welcome to another episode of Keep It Weird; the podcast for all things strange and unusual, stylish and sultry, electronic and psychic and everything in between.

This week Lauren teaches us about WANG SAEN SUK; a Buddhist HELL GARDEN located in Bang Saen city, Chonburi province, Thailand!  It’s also known as Thailand's Hell Horror Park and it is FULL of some of the most disturbing statues you may ever see!  Yay!

Ashley is diving into the mystery of the DODLESTON MESSAGES- a year and a half long unhinged prank?  A hoax to drive up book sales?  Or was it actually a ghost from 1546 talking to a couple via their 1985 computer?

Lauren finishes off the episode with a couple CONSPIRACY THEORIES - One being PROJECT SUNSHINE which sounds so light and fun but actually has to do with dismembering the corpses of babies?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! HELP. And then the gals tear apart the CHALLENGER Conspiracy that appeared online a few years ago claiming that the victims of the space shuttle challenger disaster of 1986 are actually alive and well and just decided to start new lives and abandon everyone they ever loved for no reason.

You have to every once in a while, right? Maybe not in the way our titular character did it but in your own.. special... safe.. and consensual way.

Hey weirdos! Welcome to another FANTASTIC episode of Keep It Weird; the podcast for all things strange and unusual, apocalyptic and dystopian, creepy, kooky and all things BUCKWILD.

This week Lauren tells us the story of a man in Australia who is looking for dead bodies in all the wrong places for an ART INSTALLATION of all things. She also takes us to a spooky train track in Arkansas that has been haunted by a bouncing light for over fifty years.

Ashley is bringing us a kidnapping where not all was as it seems... but the kidnappers motives aren't surprising to the gals at all. And we're ending the show with THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT kind of. Apocalypses happen all the time-- this particular apocalypse took place in Serbia in 1908 and we all it the Tunguska Event. To this day no one knows what caused it... or if it could happen again.

Greetings Gotham City!

It's me, the classic character, Joker-Riddler-Penguin! And I'm here to wreck all your trains!

This will all make sense in approximately 45 minutes to an hour but in the meantime HELLO and welcome weirdos to another episode of KEEP IT WEIRD with Ashley Casseday & Lauren Ogle.

Each week we get together to teach each other strange science, tell creepy stories, and share magical thoughts and this week we've got quite the variety for you.

Ashley is starting us off with a WHAT IF GOD WAS ONE OF US by teaching us the Gospel of Mary Magdanele and how her ideas of the Christian faith shifted by her own reading of these amazing biblical books that didn't make it into the final draft of the bible.

Lauren TRIES to lighten the mood by talking about how plants in A BIT O' BIOLOGY might be able to talk and hear but it ends up being kind of depressing because we realize how many plants we've killed over the years.

Ashley brings us around to an UNSOLVED MYSTERY as we try to solve the case of the runaway train in Hoboken New Jersey in 2016 and the ominous evil Dr Seuss message that preceded the crash.

And Lauren finishes us off with an (as usual) very special DERP CORNER where we try to understand why a man in a high speed chase would choose the slowest getaway car in history. Check out some links below for further education!

Welcome to the wonderful world of weird!

This week we have an extra CREEPY episode for you that may make you rethink that old radio you still keep in your garage.

This week Ashley is detailing the history of the discovery and research of ELECTRONIC VOICE PHENOMENON otherwise known as EVPs

A lot of people don't realize that the study of these strange voices coming through our radios and showing up on our recordings has existed since we discovered Radio Waves!  And since radio waves are a natural part of our world... how do we know they aren't carrying voices from beyond the grave?  From another dimension?  From our own MINDS?!  

We cover past research into who is working on this study today and we even share a handful of our OWN EVPs we've captured over the years so you can hear them again (or for the first time!)  Be aware-- you may need headphones to hear these bad-boys clearly.

Lauren rounds out our episode with a brand new segment where we travel to RUSSIA to find a city thats all about.... chess?  And an alien told them to build it?  What is happening?

And of course we end our episode with a thought provoking WEIRD question that we'd love you to answer by calling 626-686-1821 and leaving us a message!
