And not to be outdone, we hear from someone whose boyfriend left them for a ghost. All while thoroughly creeping out Em and Christine for all the synchronicities related to episode 313 that we just recorded and comes out this coming week. Are we trauma bonded from a whole different lifetime? ...and that's why we drink!Join us on the road for our brand new On the Rocks tour!! andthatswhywedrink.com/live

And we're starting with the topic of Em's story this week, the Van Meter Visitor, or as Christine dubbed them, a time traveling monster with headlamps. Then Christine covers the brutal case of the Connecticut River Valley Killer, an unsolved 70's serial killer we can only hope is identified one day.

Happy New Year!! We're still committed to not making any predictions because of how terribly that's gone in the past (it's a moot pursuit) but we're wishing all you boozers and shakers the absolute best this new year! We're also bringing you some of your own creepy submitted stories - no theme this time around, just general creeps, from a cursed Christmas ornament and a haunted plane to a Watcher House suspect and a celebrity mountain cult. And for February, we're calling everyone who ever sent us an email with the tagline "but that's a story for another day", now is your time! Send us your stories because today is the day! And that's why we drink!And speaking of February... WE'RE GOING BACK ON TOUR!! Be sure to get your tickets at andthatswhywedrink.com/live

And, for now, we are at peace in the Troll Hole... and that's why we drink!Don't miss out on our brand new, spooky live show: On the Rocks! andthatswhywedrink.com/liveP.S.

It's episode 306 and since it's earlier for us than usual and we just saw each other in person, we're a little extra unhinged! But we're here to bring you some holiday season creeps: first Em covers the Mackenzie Poltergeist and Greyfriars Cemetery. Then Christine brings us a very "Nightmare Before Christmas"-esque story with the extremely sad and perplexing Napa Valley Halloween Murders. And are we here to hook up Bumble BFFs who live next to cemeteries? ...and that's why we drink!
Welcome to episode 305, where we're reading the fucking room! This week Em brings us a story we covered on Sinisterhood, the Greenbrier Ghost, the tale of a spirit who helped solve her own murder.

Then they bring us the story of a Wisconsin werewolf, the Beast of Bray Road, the absolute last dog you want to cuddle. Then Christine brings us the lukewarm, we mean cold case of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley, who's murderer was pretty obvious to everyone except the people set to solve it.

It’s here, it’s happening, it’s our 300th! We can’t believe we’ve been here for 300 years, we mean episodes. We wanted to do something special to celebrate and since we’ve covered the Winchester Mystery House twice, once at the beginning of the podcast and once for the 200th episode, we thought, why not go record there in person this time! So today we’re coming to ya from Sarah Winchester’s carriage house and talking all things ghost and paranormal equipment. First Em gives us a rundown on how each item works and then Christine dives into the recesses of our gmail to find listener stories and creepy EVPs from times you’ve used each item Em talks about.

And as we always say, all roads lead to Boo Buddy, but that’s for another day… and that’s why we drink!

When Em described banshee as a blue wolf like person in the X men I hink shes thinking of Beast. Banshee is a different person. He has sonic screaming and can fly. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banshee_(character)

I visited Clingman's Dome this year! It's beautiful but definitely steeper than it looks.
