Good day, weirdos!

Your girls are back for another week of WEIRD and this week is all over the place.

From psychic visions to sex trafficking, killer weather to kidnapping, and even some terrifying technology to keep you awake at night.

After we get our Vanderpump excitement out of the way Lauren starts us off with a TRUE CRIME TIME teaching us about the strange disappearance of Theresa Ann Bier.  Her uncle took her camping one day in 1987 and she hasn’t been seen since…  I wonder… who did it.

Then Ashley takes us into the way WAY back machine with a little history lesson on King Richard III.  This is a new segment called CALL MISS CLEO where we discuss PSYCHIC visions and after 500 years of looking for the lost King’s remains - he was found.  But the only explanation for his discovery may lie in the paranormal.

Lauren swings us forward juuuuust a tad as with an IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT as we venture into 1948 when the small steel town of Donora Pennsylvania was nearly choked to death by a killer fog.

And finally Ashley wraps it up with a TERRIFYING TECHNOLOGY update where we learn that we currently have the ability to READ MINDS.  And no that is not a euphemism… we can read actual thoughts.

Hey Weirdos!

This episode isn't JUST weird organ stories.... but it kind of is.  Welcome back to KEEP IT WEIRD your main source of the strangest of the strange.  Each week we get together to chat about something WEIRD and this season we are ramping it up- Helter Skelter style.  Only a true weirdo knows what that means...

This week the girls start by giving some LISTENER GHOST STORY UPDATES along with TWO new chilling tales of terror for your listening pleasure. 

Lauren clues us in on some recent COW MUTILATIONS happening in the US of A and we recall a case we covered recently that looked an awful lot like the human version of these cruel bovine murders.

Then Ashley closes us out with a piece on CELLULAR MEMORY-- and if that is what is the cause of inheriting the attributes of your ORGAN DONOR.  Some people receive a new heart and just get to live another day.  Others receive a heart and start enjoying different food... different music... different genders??  Is it possible that memories are stored in our cells??  Or is there something else going on...

Make sure you're following us on Instagram and Twitter @keepitweirdcast and join our Facebook Group/Like our Facebook Page!  Give us 5 stars on iTunes (if you're a true blue weirdo) and take a minute to peruse our Patreon at www.patreon.com/keepitweirdpodcast to find ways you can DONATE to our show and receive TWO bonus episodes a month, discounts on merch, and a monthly newsletter!

Get out your paranormal sticks, weirdos!  It's time for some SCARY STORIES! 

This was a wild bunch, let me tell you.  Two stories left us speechless and that is RARE.

This week is a fan favorite: LISTENER GHOST STORIES! Ashley & Lauren get together to share sometimes terrifying, sometimes sweet, but always creepy REAL life scary stories sent in by YOU, the listener.

On this LGS we have ghosts, we have vampires, we have zombies, we have missing time, we even have tears in the fabric of our very UNIVERSE.

Thank you to everyone who wrote in to us and/or allowed us to share your personal tales of terror!  If anyone ever wants to send us your story please do so by emailing us at keepitweirdpodcast@gmail.com with the subject line LISTENER GHOST STORIES OR you can call us at 626-686-1821 and leave us a voicemail.

As usual, THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS THAT MAY BE JARRING TO SOME LISTENERS. There is a music/sound effect free version of this episode available for free at www.patreon.com/keepitweirdpodcast

(Also, PS: This episode will not be featured on our YouTube channel as we believe LGS is a more enjoyable soundscape but you can check out clips from the video version of this episode by visiting our social media @keepitweirdcast on Instagram & Twitter)
