Welcome to episode 49! This week, Caity kicks it off with a spooky tale of a murder that might have been the work of demons. Sarah tells us about the arson at the UpStairs Lounge, a gay bar that was burned down and took the lives of 32 people in the early years of Pride. We hope you enjoy the new theme song that Sarah made for the Warrens and don’t forget to slide into her DMs with your star signs.
Everyone needs a good skincare routine but please don’t take advice from the woman in Sarah’s story. The blood of children is not a good moisturizer. Though we are curious about how Elizabeth Bathory’s skin felt at the end of her life. Sarah also tells us about a weird troll movie and if Caity had to hear about it, so do you. Caity continues this “Crimes that Inspired Movies” themed episode with the events that inspired The Changeling: the disappearance of Walter Collins and the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders.
This episode kicks off with Caity messing up. She deleted a clip discussing the weird dream where she was impregnated with alien triplets that is referenced a few times in the episode. Nugget also decides to make a few appearances because he needs to be heard. Caity delves into the history and ghosts of the hotel that inspired The Shining, The Stanley. Sarah takes us on an adventure to the Loch Ness and the monster that might live in its depths. We love Nessie, y’all.
Well, well, well. What do we have here? A bunch of odd stories for you, that’s what! Sarah kicks it off with the story of Dan White, a man who murdered two men that he worked with and blamed it all on twinkie induced depression. Caity gives us a trio of twin tales that include murder, mayhem, and some almost creepy coincidences.
In episode 45, Caity puts on her conspiracy cap and dives into the Denver International Airport and the wide variety of theories that surround it. Is it a New World Order meeting place? Does its artwork depict the end of days to come? Does it house our reptilian overlords? No. But you'll learn all about why people think it does. Sarah goes over the last 24 hours of a death row inmate, discusses some quippy last words, and details a few choice last meals. What would you pick?
Hello, again! We’re back with episode 44 and this one is a cannibal-themed doozy! Sarah regales us with the story of Armin Meiwes and his willing victim, Bernd Jurgen Brandes. The pair spent a horrific evening together that ended with Brandes being the main dish. Caity thought you might enjoy a tale about a grannibal. Leonarda Cianciulli would do anything for her son, including murdering innocent townsfolk and serving them in lovely tea cakes to all of her friends. Is there a theme you'd like to hear?

Summertime is almost here and we couldn’t be more excited! To get you beach ready, and by ready, I mean scared, Sarah tells some super scary stories from the deep blue sea. Divers and ships and ladies, oh, my! Caity talks about James Dean and the car that killed him. Was it cursed? Yes. Yes, it was.
Are you ready for a spooky episode? We hope so because Caity and Sarah both picked the paranormal this week! Sarah shares the story of Victoria’s Black Swan Inn, a local haunt with a long and tragic history. Caity tells us about the Spiritualism movement and the sisters at the center of it all. Sarah also sings a song that helped her pass eight grade history. You don’t want to miss it.
Do you like ghost stories? Sarah sure doesn’t but the paranormal was how she decided to kick off her first story! In this episode, Caity goes over the life of Diane Downs, a woman who did some terrible things for love even though absolutely no one asked her to. Sarah jumps in with the Winchester Mystery House and the woman who built it for decades (who also happens to be named Sarah).
Welcome back! Episode 40 means that it’s time for another theme. This week, we chose nurses who kill and it is a doozy. The story starts at around 7:30 for those of you who don’t like the chatter and want to miss out on us yelling Casarndy (our celebrity couple name) at each other. Caity brings us the story of Jolly Jane Toppan, a nurse who really hated old people. Sandy tells a tale from right here in San Antonio. Genene Jones was a nurse who preyed on the young and killed or injured at least 47 children. Sandy will be taking a small break from the pod, so tune in next week to hear Sarah tell a story!
