Aaaaaooooooo, Weirdos!

Are you ready to learn about Werewolves?!  This week Ashley is joined by the monster man himself, Mr. Southern Vampire Billy Roach!  Billy is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to the mythos of vampires and trust me when I say he did NOT disappoint when it comes to werewolves either.

Billy and Ashley are joined by their hype man, Handsome Joe (aka DJ Jazzy Joe) as Billy teaches us all about where the legends began, the different versions of lore from around the world, lycanthropy as a disease, how to kill a werewolf, how to *become* a werewolf, and so much more.

Join us next week when Ashley dives into werewolves in pop culture and how the beast has mirrored society throughout the decades.

In the meantime... oil your sticks.

Welcome, weirdos, to part TWO of our TIME TRAVEL episode!

As you know, last week Joe taught us about spacetime, how gravity, speed, and velocity work together to influence "time," wormholes & black holes, and so much more.

This week is all about theoretical science.  Ashley is going to be teaching the crew about Time Paradoxes and the different things that would and wouldn't be possible when it came through traveling through time.  Most importantly, the things we'd have to worry about if time travel were possible.

And as for our guest this week- we are joined once again by Madigan Haggerty of  Your Angry Neighborhood Feminist (podcast) and she ventured to the darkest corners of the world wide web to find some REAL (?) life time travelers to learn their stories! 

Have a blast, y'all.  And make sure you grab your towel!

Great Scott, Weirdos!

Welcome to our very first (how is that possible?) TIME TRAVEL episode!! Ashley has a very handsome stand-in cohost, Mr. Handsome Joe himself, and they get to sit down with Madigan Haggerty, host of the podcast Your Angry Neighborhood Feminist, to chat about space and time.

This week Joey is going to teach us all about time travel-- time, space, quantum physics, theoretical physics, time dilation, wormholes, velocity, blackholes, and so much more.

Next week we're going to discuss time paradoxes, time travel in science fiction, and Madigan is going to tell us about some real life time travelers... or are they?

So hop in your DeLorean and hit 88 miles per hour-- we're going back to the future.

Welcome Weirdos and Floridians alike!

This is our very first official CROSSOVER EPISODE!  We had the pleasure of joining the boys of one of our favorite podcasts Florida Men on Florida Man in their Studio in sunny Florida last week via Skype to chat about some recent crazy "Florida Man" headlines, answer listener questions, play a game that was definitely not rigged, and discuss the totally weird tale of the Betz Mystery Sphere!

In March of 1974, a Florida family stumbled upon a strange metal artifact after a brush fire on their property that, after a couple weeks, started to move on it's own... 

Please make sure you check out Florida Men on Florida Man, we've enjoyed every single episode of their hilarious pod and we know you will, too!  Follow them on Instagram & Twitter @fmofmpodcast and of course follow us as well @keepitweirdcast

Hi Weirdos!

Are you ready to get deep?  This is part two of our Q & A session with Amy Goldenburg of House of Heron's Eye.  Amy is a medium who has been working as a spiritual healer in Los Angeles for years and she sat down with your host Ashley to answer YOUR questions!

In part one we covered ghosts, death, aliens, and tarot cards.  This week we have a much more serious conversation.  We discuss healing past traumas, discovering your life's purpose, finding happiness, spiritual healing, communicating with loved ones we have lost, and we even answer the question "Can a ghost be a perv?"

This episode deals a lot with spirituality, faith, life, and unconditional love.  Keep an open mind; you never know what you could gain!

Jul 5, 2019

Welcome to a very special episode of Keep It Weird wherein Ashley sits down for an intimate conversation with the show's favorite medium- Amy Goldenberg.

Over 50 listeners sent in questions for this episode and we set out to answer as many as possible.  Questions about death, the afterlife, connecting with your spirit, overcoming the fear and uncertainty of spirituality, finding ways to communicate with those who have passed, knowing when you're on the right path in life, and even the existence of extra terrestrials.

This episode is as fascinating to listen to as it was to record and my most sincere hope is that you listen with an open mind and find a way to become closer to your spiritual self-- in whatever way is meaningful to you.

Make sure you follow Amy on instagram @houseofheronseye and reach out to say hello!

Hi Weirdos!

This week is all about SERIAL KILLERS!  Lauren and Ashley are going to be chatting about some of the lesser known serial murderers, who they killed, how they killed, how they were caught, and how they are all a bunch of dumb a-hole jerks.

 

Listen in for stories that are disturbing, cops and laws that are frustrating, letters to police, bodies buried under your feet,  and a collection of men that are complete trash.

That's-a Spicy Meatball!

Hi Weirdos!  Welcome to PART TWO of our delicious FOOD episode!  Ashley and Lauren are joined once again by the wonderful Natalie Higgerson as we chat about our favorite past-time-- food!

Last week Lauren made us squirm with the worlds craziest cuisines and this week Natalie is starting us off with the wackiest, spookiest, strangest restaurants in the USA.  Some very out-there themes, unbelievable menus, unlikely locations, and even places where you can dine with the dead.

Then Ashley brings us home with some absolutely crazy FOODSPIRACIES. That's right, the queen of the conspiracy is here to make you question everything once again as she shares some scary, some silly, and some conspiracies that ended up being 100% true.

Grab your bib and your hand wipes; it's going to get messy.

Ayuh, Weirdos!

Stay away from the road!  This week Ashley and Lauren are joined by Maine native Kate Alden as we explore all the strangeness in her home state.

Our Hometown Haunts series examines the monsters, murders, and ghosts each corner of the planet has to offer and this week we're focusing on the HAUNTS.

Kate shares with us all of the local legends and spooky specters and she also has a TON of personal stories and firsthand accounts with the spirits residing in the lobster capital.

Welcome Weirdos, one and all!

This week we had the pleasure of sitting down with several guests at the TeaPop May Market in North Hollywood.  Lauren and I grabbed our recording equipment and set up a booth and found some brave souls to chat with us and share some of their WEIRD stories!

On top of that YOU sent us some of YOUR weird stories as well! Come along as Ashley and Joe try to get to the bottom of these strange tales.

This week has a little bit of everything-- from ligers to flesh eating bacteria, sociopaths to shadow figures, and whistling ghosts to madmen on rooftops; its time to get weird.

Hi Weirdos! 

One, Two, Unheimlich's comin' for you.  Three, Four better lock your door.

Welcome to PART TWO of our CREEPY CHILDREN episode!  Ashley and Lauren are joined again by Lauren's wonderful sister Julia and her newborn baby boy Wilder as we continue our creepy chat.

Last week we talked all about the paranormal and children's abilities to witness it.  This week Lauren kicks it off by telling us about some children who MURDER and it is a nightmare.  Extra Warnings this week-- it's not an easy topic.

But have no fear, Julia is here to lighten up the mood when she brings us her research into the psychology behind why children are oh so spooky.  Creepy kids in movies have always brought in those box office dolla bills-- and the reason why may surprise you.

Hi sweet baby Weirdos!

Welcome to a very special episode of Keep It Weird.  This week we not only have a long anticipated guest-- Lauren's sister Miss Julia!! But it's also our first episode recorded with baby Wilder!! And yes you will hear him.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, we decided to chat about CREEPY CHILDREN and boy are there some creepy kiddos out there.

We talked for so long that we've got a TWO PART ep for you, and this week Ashley is chatting about that special something that children have-- the ability to experience the paranormal.

Are we born with psychic abilities?  Are we connected to our families by something other than the love we share?  Can children really see ghosts?  And just who are these imaginary friends anyway?

We found research from child psychologists, parapsychologists, nurses, priests, and first and foremost-- parents to try and answer these fascinatingly WEIRD questions.

Breakthroughs in medical, biological, astrophysical, historical, environmental, and even sexual science.  From the smallest atom to the furthest reaches of space-- prepare to join Joey Lawrence and say "Whoa."

Was that sentence long enough?  This week we have ghosts who play with technology, demonic presences, pond monsters, extraterrestrials, serial killers, and so much more.  

So buckle up, throw on some headphones to amp up the scares, and enjoy your goosebumps.

Ashley and Lauren are joined once again by Melanie, marine biologist and Armenian queen, to discuss SEA MONSTERS!!

Lauren will be telling us all about mythological sea monsters that may or may not be lurking at the bottom of the ocean (they are.) We discuss the origins of each creature both geographically and their genesis.

Melanie is going to be teaching us about some real life deep sea creatures that you will barely believe are real, and Ashley will be throwing in some other random terrifying shit that you can find at the bottom of the big blue.

Ahoy Weirdos!

Welcome to part one of our dive into the DEEP SEA!  Get ready for about one hundred more sea puns, whether you like it oar not.  Get it?

Ashley & Lauren have the pleasure of sitting down with returning guest Melanie Vartabedian who has a degree in marine biology and is genuinely a lover of the sea.

Melanie teaches us all about the ocean and how it is structured, the types of creatures that live within each layer, how those creatures need each other to survive, and how we, on land, need all of them as well.

We discuss marine biology, underwater weather, the circle of life, the importance of Spongebob Squarepants, and of course; the CIA (WHAT)

Join us for part two next week when we send Lauren over the edge with SEA MONSTERS

Hi Weirdos!

Welcome to Part TWO of our Human Body episode!  We wanted to interview people with interesting bodies-- so as you know last week we were able to sit down with comedian Nick Wuthrich who was born without testicles; it was fascinating and we had a blast!

This week, Nick joins us again as we chat with Lauren who, as you may or may not know, has a little creature inside her.  Yes, she's expecting a baby in less than a month!  We're so excited, and we got to ask her all our questions. 

We discuss what she loves and hates about pregnancy, the amazing things her body is doing & will do, her struggles and her successes, fetal development, gene mapping and cloning, and sex.

Warning: This episode contains some very graphic descriptions of natural and cesarean birth.

Hi Weirdos!

As you know each week we sit down and talk about something strange, unusual, paranormal, supernatural, creepy, sticky, gross, scary or anything in between-- this week we're focusing on the in between.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with my friend and comedian Nick Wuthrich for part one of our HUMAN BODY episode!  We invited Nick to chat with us this week because he has a very special body, indeed.  Nick was born, and has lived his entire life, without testicles.

This week Nick tells us about what it was like to grow up "different," his ups and downs with taking testosterone, his sex life, and most importantly how he's taken what could be seen as a negative and turned it into a very positive and funny life.

You can follow Nick on instagram @nickwuthrich and check out his youtube show "Neutered by Nature."

Coming at you LIVE from North Hollywood, California!  

Last month we had the privilege of opening for the My Worst Date podcast for their very first live performance at the Actor's Workout Studio in Los Angeles!

Since their show is all about dating, we wanted to cover a topic that would make you think twice about dating ever again. So this week we are chatting about WOMEN who date and sometimes even MARRY convicted serial killers!  

What? Who? Why?  Why would anyone ever?  The answer may surprise you.  We take a look at who these women are and the psychology behind why someone would ever find these men to be husband material.

 

Warning: This episode contains foul language and was recorded in front of a live audience.  For this reason the audio quality and length of the episode may differ from our usual shows.  Have no fear-- next week we're back on the couch with full episodes.
