Will the COVID madness ever come to an end? Will Lisa buy a plague doctor mask? Will Yinh have to yank the wax off her own armpits?  In this delightful minisode, we talk botched Tudor executions, where to find toilet paper, "Killer Sofa," and the perils of self-grooming.

Feeling a little antsy? COVID-19 sheltering got you down? Settle into a couple of FUN stories: "Mine," by Matthew V. Brockmeyer (read by Yinh), and a little history lesson from Lisa, about the one and only Typhoid Mary.

It's COVID-19 isolation time, and we are unable to record at the studio, so we're doing a Zoom-isode and hoping for the best.  Dialing in is return guest Melissa van Hamme as we touch base on how we're holding up, "The Shining" board game, "The Lighthouse," and building a sweat lodge with tarps and duct tape.  WASH YOUR HANDS.

It's the dark days of the Coronavirus.  SXSW has been cancelled, you can't buy hand sanitizer at CVS, and hazmat suits are the new black.  What better topic to discuss than NATURE GONE BAD?  Joining us is returning guest Nick Zaino, as we get into pandemics, rabid dogs, triffids, and a crow named Shit Turd.  Plus - a surprise appearance by local metal band Rhodium Plated.  Grab your Clorox wipes and your face masks and don't forget to wash your hands before listening!

We're tackling Catholicism, which is uniquely suited to horror in ways that most non-Catholics might not grasp. Anyone who grew up with a dog-eared copy of "Lives Of The Saints" knows this.

Lending a bit of credibility to our hot mess of a horror podcast is Harvard Kennedy School Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Public Policy (and nerd-of-all-trades) Christopher Robichaud

Let's talk iconography, relic classes, the Cadaver Synod, and why "The Exorcist" isn't what you think it is.

MUSIC IN HORROR. We’re all over the place with Ennio Morricone, Bela Bartok, Diamanda Galas, The Ramones, and which horror theme you want playing every time you walk into a room.  Returning guest Jonathan Woodard helps us work through the Jukebox From HELL.

Episode 17 - Creepy Babies!

Kids! Why are they so damn creepy? Lisa and Yinh are joined by Kevin Coombs to talk about some of the weirder kids in the horror genre.  Damien! Gage Creed! Children of the Corn!  Along the way, we swerve off into various ditches regarding fake German heiresses, the creepiness of child actors in general, raccoon penis bones, and Lisa's on-again-off-again "thing" about Leif Garrett.

Episode 16 - Doll Parts

And now, the subject many would have preferred we didn't cover.  DOLLS.  From Annabelle to Chucky to the O.G. of haunted dolls - Robert the Doll - we discuss just why this topic is so creepy to so many. Along the way we talk clutter, the evil that is mayonnaise, and Lisa waxes eloquent on having intimate relations while a possessed doll is in the room. Felicia Ryan (of "Hi, Felicia!" podcast) guests.

It's nearly Christmas, "the most wonderful time of the year," and we tackle what that one line in that song - about telling ghost stories - really means.  A dramatic reading of A.M. Burrage's "Smee," plus the legend of The Belsnickel.  Also - Krampus porn, cat vomit, and why a can of peas is a nice Yankee Swap gift.
