So, light your protection candle, sprinkle some salt around you and cozy up under those blankets— it’s time to get scared.

It's time for a graveyard smash, weirdos! 

Welcome to another creep-tastic episode of KEEP IT WEIRD- the podcast for all things strange, unusual and... classic?

This week we're taking a trip back in time to chat about UNIVERSAL CLASSIC MONSTERS!! And.... one DC character, but we'll get to that.

Ashley & Lauren are joined once again by our monster expert BILLY ROACH as we take a look at who created these monsters and why.

Billy starts us off by covering FRANKENSTEIN; the fascinating details of how and where it was written by Mary Shelley, as well as the various film versions of the creature and movies and monsters that have been inspired by the stitched-together-man over the decades!

Ashley comes in with THE INVISIBLE MAN!  What were HG Well's inspirations for creating this man who couldn't be seen?  The amazing special effects that haven't been beated so far from a movie made in 1933, why Hollow Man is the best interpretation of this character in the 21st Century, and why The Invisible Man (2020) is actually NOT a good movie.

And finally, Lauren.  Poor Lauren, who was given the assignment of "Swamp Thing" because Ashley didn't know there was a difference between SWAMP THING and The Creature from the Black Lagoon.  But guess what?  SHE KNOWS NOW!  Lauren dives into both the fish man AND the plant man in her segment-- teaching us the origins of Swamp Thing in DC Comics, the various past iterations of the monster on film and even some upcoming projects to look forward to featuring this man-plant.

Happy October my fiendish friends!!

Welcome to a special Halloween episode of KEEP IT WEIRD: The podcast for all things strange and unusual, haunted and harrowing and full of monsters and maniacs! 

This week is all about HAUNTED HOUSES!!  They've been around since, well... since we've started living in houses!  And that's because ghosts have been around since people started dying.  And demons may have been around even longer.

We have a VERY special guest on the show, LINDSEY BRISBINE!  Lindsey is the host and producer of THE CHILLING PODCAST: a serialized show that details the true events behind a real-life haunting that took place in Kent, Ohio.  It's full of first hand accounts of the supernatural as well as interviews with psychics, doctors, religious experts, psychologists and witnesses!

Lindsey joins Ashley & Lauren to discuss their haunted house experiences and their all time favorite haunted house MOVIES as well as a few that didn't quite hit the mark.  What haunted house movie is the CLOSEST to what it's actually like to live inside a haunted home?  Tune in to find out...
