Dear Weirdos,

Welcome to our first ASK A WEIRDO episode!  A compilation of listener questions that have been sent in that we haven't been able to fit in our regular weekly 'sodes! 

We answer questions about clingy neighbors that may be stalkers, undocumented phobias, a brand spankin' new haunted(?) house, and what to do if you are in a relationship with someone who has a paranormal gift! 

We always accept your questions and we're always delighted to answer them!  Message us on Facebook or Instagram or shoot us an email at! 

No question is too weird!

We take a serious look at what happens when heaven and hell come onto our turf and mess around.  Do you have to be a believer to believe in stigmata?  Why are so many schizophrenics religious fanatics? Tune in this week (and next) and let us know what YOU think.

Are you ready to be Science-d?  This week, Lauren and Ashley sit down with Maria and ask some very serious questions about whether or not we are all living in a giant computer simulation.  What clues do we have in every day life? Deja Vu?  Alternate Timelines?  The Mandela Effect?  Do our brains receive and store information a little too much like a computer would?  Does this theory disprove God?  

There's a lot of big-girl words in this one-- so buckle up, put on your thinking cap, take the red pill and follow us down the rabbit hole...

Ashley and Lauren bring you their own personal ghost stories, listener ghost stories, and a little Christmas cheer.

Join us for Part One of our Listener Ghost Stories series where we bring you REAL life ghost stories, our theories on what could be taking place, and, as usual, a whole lot of tangents. 

We start with some personal stories-- Lauren encounters a ghost in a restaurant bathroom and Ashley grows up sharing her house with a little girl in a checkered dress.  A naked demon (or possibly one of Santa's elves?) intimidates a 9 year old on Christmas morning, a shirtless man haunts a bedroom, and we'll introduce you to "Ben," the energy that harassed Ashley and her old roommates for over two years.

Send in YOUR stories to so we can share them with the world!

In this episode, Lauren and Ashley sit down with their very first FEMALE guest, Kari, and discuss Ladies who kill!  We all pick our favorite female serial killers throughout history and talk about what makes female serial killers different and similar to their male counterparts... and we sing.  A lot.


DISCLAIMER: This episode has a weird audio problem!  Starting at about minute 10 and going to about minute 20 there is a strange popping sound-- we've tried everything to remove this sound but weren't able to fix it!  We didn't want to cut it out, because theres a lot of weird/cool information shared, but if you can't handle it skip ahead to minute 21 and you'll be in the clear!
