Hiya Weirdos,

How are you?  Good?  That's great, can't wait to ruin that for you.  This week is PART ONE of our Media conspiracies and urban legends episode!  We are joined by a VERY SPECIAL guest, Peter Lozano-- host of the VERY SPECIAL TELEVISION podcast!! And return guest, Scott Youngbauer, who you last heard in our DOLLS episode! So many CAPS!

Focusing on the "conspiracy" portion in this segment-- we're going to be talking about broadcast signal intrusions, strange youtube channels and reddit threads, internet "gang stalking," and even take a trip through the DARK WEB! 

This week gets crazy and very dark so we've added a couple extra WARNINGS for some of the more disturbing material.

It's a bird!  It's a plane!  It's Keep It Weird! This week we are talking about SUPER HUMAN POWERS!  Real life X-Men, Aquamen, and Daredevils!  Do humans have the abilities that we see throughout comic books?  Is it a mutation that they are born with or did they learn to be "freaks?"  What can they teach us about the human body?  And more importantly, what can they teach us about the human mind?

Telekinesis, Spontaneous Human Combustion, Human Echolocation, The Ice Man, Sea Nomads, a guy who sticks WHAT- WHERE? and so much more.  Come one, come all, you will NOT believe your ears!

Welcome to another edition of HOMETOWN LORE!  This time we decided not to travel at all as we're joined by CALIFORNIA native Rachel Wilde!  

This episode dives deep into the history of California's famous serial killers, murder mysteries, haunted locations, strange architecture, adorable monsters, and some reeeeaaaally chiiillll California ghosts.

So slap on some sunscreen, open the sunroof, avoid the 405 and join us for an extended episode that's all about Cali, baby!

Remember that crazy episode we did about how we could all be a part of a computer program called the Matrix where we talked about multiple dimensions, alternate timelines, and the Mandela effect and you listened and were like... whuuuut?


It's like that but longer/crazier/deeper.  This time around we look at the fabric of the universe through the lens of premonitions and precognition.  Do humans have the ability to see into the future?  Is time a bunch of wibbly-wobbly stuff?  What are we meant to gain from this knowledge?  And who is sending us this information?  Be it God, Xenu, or ourselves from an alternate universe-- buckle up for this wild ride.

Hello Boils and Ghouls!!

It's another edition of LISTENER GHOST STORIES!! We know, it's been too long!

We travel all over the country from Pasadena, CA to Peoria, IL... we chat about everything from space pickles to haunted DVDs, from IRL indian burial grounds to possessed toilets.  And we try to find an answer to the age old question: Why is everybody being haunted by their uncle?

You know the drill, throw on some headphones and get ready to get spooky.

Jul 28, 2017

What is the creepiest thing you can think of to be the sole focus of an entire episode?  No, not clowns.  Ugh, but you're so right though.  No. it's DOLLS.  Creepy dolls, haunted dolls, possessed dolls, voodoo dolls, island of the dolls, DOLLS DOLLS DOLLS.

This week we ask the questions Why do we find dolls so creepy? Is there really an island full of dolls? Can a doll really become possessed? Why is the horror movie industry obsessed with dolls?

Find your answer to these and more as we sip some cocktails, scream a lot, and get all DOLLED up.

Warning Weirdos-- this episode is CURSED!! 

Or... I mean, it could be. This week we're going Behind the Scenes of the Damned! The Exorcist, Poltergeist, The Omen, Rosemary's Baby, Superman, The Conjuring.  Were these movies  CURSED?  Or was it just plain bad luck?  Is this VERY episode cursed?  Or has OUR luck simply ran out?

Join us as we lift the curtain and go backstage.. how many film/tv references can we fit into this description?

Enjoy!  But also might be cursed so... don't say we didn't warn you.

OUR FIRST OFFICIAL PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION in which we TOTALLY did not drink wine all night.*

This week join Ashley and Lauren as they chat about their paranormal investigation of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.  

Get to know the history of the Biltmore and some of it's most famous haunts (including the BLACK DAHLIA) hear stories from staff members about the spooks, listen to audio recordings of the actual investigation, and throw some headphones on, because even though we may have been drinking some wine, we absolutely caught some VERY strange EVP's.  


*We absolutely did drink wine all night.

Apr 22, 2017

This week Ashley and Lauren sit down with their good friend and amateur paranormal investigator Matt Roberts to discuss ghost hunting! Some of the history, the tools and methods you use, the do's and don'ts, how and when to debunk, and EIGHT of Matt's very own EVP's.  


Throw on your headphones and enjoy learning about scrying, dowsing, crystal pendulums, EMF, EVP's, K2 Meters, Thermal Imaging Cameras, and Ghost Boxes.  What methods work?  What methods don't?  Can the dead actually communicate?  Are they even dead?  Find out on this week's EXTENDED EPISODE!!

Welcome back!! Continue along with Ashley, Lauren, and Kelly as they discuss the more evil side of Divine Tampering.  Signing contracts with the devil, people committing heinous murder and claiming that Satan made them do it, cults, sacrifice, schizophrenia, AND our very first EVP. 

Stay tuned to the end of the episode to take a close listen to the enhanced audio of the strange whisper we caught when we recorded this episode!

Join Lauren, Ashley, and Kelly for Part One of "Divine Meddlin'" where we discuss intervention, interference, and interruptions on our earthly plane by creatures from heaven and hell.  People who claim to have talked to God, "The Devil Made me Do It" murder cases, stigmata, miracles, prophecies, and more.


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...
