    Welcome to episode 206! This week we learn that hell hath no fury like a vengeful lady fish, or at least someone who's extremely into mermaids. Em covers the paranormal stories of legendary location Pyramid Lake, including the people who have seen the bottom and are too scared to tell us about it. Then Christine covers the chilling story of the Cleveland kidnappings of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus by true monster Ariel Castro. And don't be surprised if Christine's dad tries to give you dried blueberries next halloween... and that's why we drink!

  • A Zero Gravity Wine Bra and a Coffee Date with Slender Man

    Jan 10 2021

    Be careful with your bread this year, everyone! It's episode 205 and we're already worried about what we could manifest even with just sandwich predictions. Speaking of predictions, this week Em covers all the times the TV show The Simpsons predicted the future, and how the writers just might be time-traveling mathematicians. Then Christine covers the story of Mexican human rights activist Miriam Rodríguez Martínez and how she tracked down her daughter’s killers all on her own. Also, why did no one call us to go eat cheese on Mars... and that's why we drink!

  • This Year's Sandwich Predictions and the Old Synaprague

    Jan 3 2021

    Happy 2021 and episode 204! Christine has already met her quota of songs sung to Em, but don't worry she has more. This week we're starting the new year with a bang as Em brings us the story of the Golem, straight out of Jewish folklore. Then Christine covers heavy hitter Son of Sam and throws Em back to stories Linda told of living in the area Son of Sam terrorized. We also speculate on the horrors of Fantasia and we, like Golem the Pokemon, would also like one hundred candies in order to evolve... and that's why we drink!

Come for the stories, stay for the friendship

I've been listening to this podcast for the last two years, they were my gateway into the true crime world and also podcasts in general. Em picks fun ghost stories and Christine picks great cases, and their commentary is always entertaining. I've seen them live once before and I hear their new live show is a totally different experience. But to be honest, what really keeps me coming back is the host's 10-30 minute recap of what's going on in each other's lives. If you start from the beginning, they go from bare acquaintances to the absolute closest of best friends and it's just as entertaining as the main content itself. They go through so much together as friends and it's really fun to get to come along with them, especially with all the crazy Patreon content they have. Even if you're not interested in their personal lives, the paranormal stories juxtaposed with the true crime is always fun no matter what!

spooky and amazing.

I never thought that I would love a true crime podcast, but something about Em and Christine keeps me coming back. Em and Christine are hilarious together. I am addicted to this podcast. ♡♡♡
