Just try and padlock this toe, I DARE YOU!

Welcome weirdos to another episode of KEEP IT WEIRD- your go-to podcast for all things strange and unusual and this week is FULL OF BONES! Literally. Well, not literally.

Lauren starts us off with some CURSED CROONERS & SPOOKY SONGS! This time she's covering what is known as the My Way Murders-- a string of at least 12 violent acts that took place during the singing of My Way by Frank Sinatra at karoake. Yeah, you read that right.

Ashley swings in with a horrific TRUE CRIME TIME, discussing the strange death of Ryan Stallings and the conviction and sentencing of his own mother Patricia Stallings - who would have spent the rest of her life in prison if not for a good samaritan watching an episode of Unsolved Mysteries.

Whew, that one is tough, so Lauren shares some WEIRD NEWS with us. Back in June over 400 vampires were found buried in Poland. Well, not real vampires. But definitely people suspected of being vampires! Or maybe they WERE real vampires...

And don't worry, we've still got MORE BONES coming because Ashley finishes off the episode by introducing us to SKELETON LAKE! Of course thats just a nickname, the lake's real name is Roopkund and it's in the middle of the Himalayas. A small lake filled with an estimated 300-800 bodies.. and no one knows how they got there...

 Woof, that's a lot to handle in one hour. Luckily we've had some tequila to help get you (and us) through it.

Check out some links below if you want to do more reading on the subjects discussed in this episode.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall!  Please don't show me a haunted doll!

Welcome to another episode of KEEP IT WEIRD- your one stop shop for all things strange and unusual!

This week we are answering the universe's most unusual question... what the f*ck is going on with mirrors?!

What if you could replace all of your pill bottles full of anxiety and depression meds and just look into a mirror for a few minutes a day?  What if you could see your past self and heal your trauma?  What if you could travel to another dimension?

It may sound crazy, but "crazy" is our middle name so buckle up!  This week we are diving into all things reflective as Ashley teaches us about the Kozyrev Mirror experiments from the 1950s & the 1990s wherein physicists placed hundreds of subjects into a device that not only opened up their third eye but also caught the eye of extraterrestrials!  We're also going to touch on the Chronovisor, a smiliar experimental device created by a priest, a physicist and a Nazi scientist that supposedly showed them the actual crucifixion of Christ that is being held at the Vatican, never to be seen again. 

Don't worry, Lauren brings us back to reality with some TRUE CRIME TIME as we look into the unsolved Tara Leigh Calico missing persons case and we question whether or not the famous photo of the two bound children helped or hindered the investigation.

Welcome Weirdos, one and all!  Young and small!  Step right up and test your PSI Strength!

This is a very special episode of Keep It Weird, the podcast for all things strange and unusual– because we have the king and queen of the strange and unusual joining us this week!

This episode feels like it’s been seven whole years in the making and it’s finally here.  Synchronicities may have brought us together but our anti-hypnotism stance is what will keep us friends.  This week Ashley and Lauren are joined by Planet Weird’s very own GREG & DANA NEWKIRK!! 

Greg and Dana are the owners/operators of the Newkirk Museum of the Paranormal & Occult.  You may have seen their appearances on shows like Kindred Spirits, Paranormal Lockdown, The World According to Jeff Goldblum or Finding Bigfoot.  Or maybe you know them from their very own podcast The Haunted Objects Podcast where they discuss the history, folklore and supernatural significance of some of their most treasured haunted items.

And if you don’t know them from any of those amazing things, you will know them as the driving force behind one of our all time favorite documentary series Hellier where they, along with Karl Pfeiffer and Connor Randall, take a trip to Hellier Kentucky to investigate some high strangeness and try to find some goblins.

Well they are here today to talk about ALL kinds of strange phenomena, paranormal entertainment, the fact that hypnotism is just PLAIN RUDE, witchcraft, Hellier drinking games, the times they’ve been the most scared and so much more. We even get to gush a bit about their BRAND NEW DOCUMENTARY that is out TODAY September 8th THE UNBINDING.  It’s the perfect way to start your spooky season right so head over to planetweird.tv and check it out now!

Without further ado– enjoy this episode, it was a dream come true for us and we hope that we didn’t just squeal our way through this interview.

Make sure you hit like and subscribe if you’re watching us here on YouTube.  Follow us on social media @keepitweirdcast to stay up to date on what we have coming up.  Check out our merch store at www.keepitweirdpodcast.com/merch and grab yourself a tshirt or better yet- a HOODIE- for this upcoming spooky season.  And if you would please check out our patreon at www.patreon.com/keepitweirdpodcast– it’s how we make the money to produce this show and you can donate as little as $1 one time to $10 monthly or even $50 whole bones to get yourself a sponsored segment on the show.

No links this week, but once again make sure you check out planetweird.tv to find ALL things Greg/Dana/HighStrangeness/Hellier/HauntedObjectsPod/TheUnbinding.

Hey Weirdos!

Or should I say SEARDOS!?   Production schedules got a little wonky here at the end of September and I didn't want to leave you without an episode this Friday--  THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER!  Which I think we can all officially, collectively agree is the EVE OF SPOOKY SEASON!! 

I decided to rerelease an episode of Keep It Seared from 2021 because relistening to it made me laugh out loud and also it's HIGH TIME we hear Handsome Joe's voice on this podcast!  He's obviously had a very busy (and stressful) year between work and family and surgeries so we haven't gotten to hear him get angry in so long!  Well... I have... but you guys haven't!

This week I share some interesting/strange/intriguing/lesser known facts with Joe and honestly... he keeps a pretty level head.  Dare I say I'm proud of him?  

Check out the link below for photos and videos of my last weird item in the episode, and make sure you join us next week where we will have two VERY special guests join us for an hour of high strangeness..
