This is our last guest episode before we release new content (yay season 4!). This week, we bring you an episode from our friends (and one of Chris’ neighbors, Tracy, who you might remember from our Classic Monsters episode), Glamazons and Leprechauns, or GAL for short. In the episode, they discuss the trials and tribulations of traveling as a 6-foot-fabulous woman or a 5-foot-furious woman. Listen to their adventures from two very different perspectives, and as always, be sure to follow and subscribe!
Just two more weeks until we begin our 4th year (do you feel the antici….pation!). In the interim, we bring you another round of bad-ass women podcasters. This week, BSP joins fan favorites Spoop Hour to talk about Werewolves. In this episode, we talk about all things werewolf, including the history of people becoming wolves, the spooky circumstances of the Beast of Bray Road, werewolves Bergot and Verdun, and the Werewolf of Allariz. Take a listen and subscribe to these awesome women!
We’re on summer break for 3 weeks! In the meantime, we’re bringing you three podcasts featuring bad-ass women hosts. First up is the amazing Fruit Loops. In each episode, Beth and Wendy talk about “serial killers of color.” This week, they discuss Michael Terry, who killed 6 people in Atlanta, GA during the 80s and 90s. It’s fun, informative, and creepy! These woman and their topics are really interesting, so give the episode a listen and subscribe. BYEEEEEE!
It’s the end of our third season! Can you believe it? In this recap, we share highlights over the last year, including favorite episodes, moments from our live show, and moments we might change. Then, we answer listener questions, submitted by our Facebook and Instagram friends. They asked some great stuff, including difficult believer/skeptic moments and episode locations we’d want to visit. Lastly, we discuss our hopes for the future in the scary COVID era.
We’ll be back on August 10th. In the meantime, we will be releasing shows from some of our pod-friends. Stay safe!
In this very special Pride48 (Live!) episode, we discuss the strange and fascinating topic of La Santa Muerte (or Saint Death), a folk saint from Mexico who has reached cult status. First, Cody talks about Santa Muerte Internacional, its founders, and how it all began. Then, Chris discusses Silvia Meraz and the murders she incited in the name of Santa Muerte. Next, Cody tells the story of a woman who went against the Catholic church and prayed to Santa Muerte after her husband died. Her prayers had some crazy side effects, including familial possession. Finally, Chris talks about one man and the crazy encounters he had with Santa Muerte during his life. Creep of the Week is a recent story about the future patron saint of the Internet. This week’s drinks are homemade horchata and Twisted Tea.

Experiences with Santa Muerte-
In this week’s minisode, we share some not-so-traditional saints. First, Chris talks about Mexican ‘folk saint’ Jesús Malverde, who is still summoned to do some “Robin Hooding” (in Chris’s words). Then, Cody talks about 3 little-known Catholic saints and the strange things they patron: Saint Barbara, Saint Drogo, and Saint Cyprian. Can you guess next week’s topic from these stories?
In this episode, Cody and Chris talk about coincidences that align a little too well to be mere chance. First, Cody talks about a story written by Edgar Allen Poe that eventually became a true story. Or did it? Then, Chris discusses a woman who “heard” an accident – involving her daughter – that happened over 20 miles away. Next, Cody’s shares a crazy coincidence that started with a dollar and ended in marriage. Finally, Chris talks about the strange similarities between Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy.

This week’s minisode comes at you with two very different tales. First, Cody shares a true story about a book that really got around (slut book!), only to end up in a very strange place. Then, Chris talks about a guy’s weird experience with an all-knowing Ouija board. Can you guess next week’s topic?
If the title didn’t give it away, this episode is about folklore from the Philippines. First, Cody talks about Mount Banahaw, a holy mountain where paranormal occurrences are plentiful, including a cave where you’re judged for your sins. Then, Chris tells us about a multo (Filipino ghost) known as the White Lady of Balete Drive, who doesn’t have a face and talks directly to your mind. Next, Cody discusses another mountain, Mount San Cristobal, which is the horribly evil version of Banahaw. Finally, Chris shares a crazy creature, the Manananggal, that can detach itself at the torso and eat you up. Creep of the Week brings us another amazing theatre ghost story.

Book – When the Impossible Happens: From Skepticism to Complete Belief
In this week’s minisode, we tell two crazy – and somehow connected – stories that have to do with animals of a sort. First, Cody tells us of a student’s encounter with a mischievous bigfoot-like creature called the Kapre, who seriously played with his mind. Then, Chris talks about a lost hiker who gets help from a phantom doggo. Can you guess next week’s topic?
