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.
