Scary up front but OK in the end!
That's the accidental theme for this week's episode of KEEP IT WEIRD - The podcast for all things strange and unusual - and therefore our working title... But REAL Weirdos know the official title of this one...
Hey, kids! If you're new here this is the show where Ashley & Lauren get together each week to talk about something WEIRD and this week had way too much body horror involved. We apologize to most of you but for some of you freaks: you're welcome?
Ashley starts us off by taking us on a Magic School Bus ride for BODY TIME! Have you ever heard of Musical Ear Syndrome? Well some people are blaming this phenomenon for witnessing paranormal activity! But don't worry, we've got some alternative theories to compete with the skeptics.
Lauren takes us into a JEEPERS CREEPERS that's all about our PEEPERS. Did you know that our eyeballs have something called "immune privelage?" It means that our eyes have a special relationship with our immune system that help protect them from inflammatory responses... but it also does horrible, terrible things.
Ashley couldn't let our eyes get all the glory, she comes in next with another JEEPERS CREEPERS but this one is all about TEEFERS. Teeth, as adults call them. Did you know they could EXPLODE?! I don't need to say more about this, watch the ep to unlock new dental fears.
Finally, Lauren wraps up the episode with a good old fashioned CONSPIRACY THEORY!! Only this time the conspiracy came true. The cold war made all of us a little cuckoo-- but possibly none moreso than the Canadian government who decided they needed to build the world's first "GAYDAR" to try to rid themselves of homosexual employees. But all it really did was prove that we just don't shame straight white men enough.

Rollin' down the street smokin' indo, sippin on bug juice. LAID BACK! With my mind on those clowns and those clowns on my mind.
The good guys dressed in black, remember that Weirdos!
Welcome to another week of weird with your two favorite freaks! Each week we have the pleasure of hanging out and chatting about something WEIRD and it's the greatest honor to do it with YOU!!
This week Ashley has an ENORMOUS alien update in a new segment we are calling ZED WE HAVE A BUG! Obviously you all know that congress just held a hearing about UAP and UAP disclosure but what you may not know is whats happening on the DL. Ashley checked the tabloids, reddit and other dark corners of the internet to find out what was happening in the world of UFOs outside of congress. Starting with SEDGE MASTERS - a three article series from UFO Magazine in 1998 that is getting some new attention, a MYSTERY MAN posting on Reddit claiming to be a molecular biologist who worked on EBOs (aliens) from 2000-2010 and supposedly knows exactly what they are and where they come from, and finally we are taken on a bumpy ride by ERIC HECKER a firefighter and plumber (it will make sense when you listen) who was contracted to work on a base in Antarctica by none other than RAYTHEON-- and he claims that they are up to no good down there.
Now, all of that is pretty heavy. Which is why we are grateful to have Lauren here to bring us a THIS WEEK IN WEIRD about the final capture of a con-man who escaped from prison FIVE YEARS ago and was just arrested last week. And she brings a fun GO QUESTIONS question about whether or not we'd help our loved ones cover up a murder.
