Podcast Blackout

In light of this week’s demonstrations against racial violence and police brutality in America, it did not feel right for us to disregard the current climate and post an episode of ATWWD. Instead, as white folks, we feel it’s time to step out of frame and listen, learn, and absorb from Black voices, before taking action. Instead, And That’s Why We Drink has decided, alongside several other podcasts, to participate in the Podcast Blackout in support of and in solidarity with this week’s demonstrations against police brutality and racial violence in America. Instead of listening to this week’s episode, we urge you to take this time to do what you can to join the fight against racial injustice. If you are unable to protest, there are still countless ways to directly help the protest efforts. If you have the means, please consider donating to Campaign Zero, Reclaim the Block, the Black Visions Collective, or countless other local and national initiatives. You can also spend this time joining the clean-up efforts in your city, or educating yourself, family, and friends about the events that have let up to the current state of our country. Please visit tinyurl.com/blmforever for an extensive list of places to donate, petitions to sign, and tips for protesting safely. Thank you, and we’ll be back next week. For now, we urge you to take action. Whatever you do, don’t do nothing. White silence is white violence.

Introducing The Dating Game Killer

In 1978, Rodney Alcala won a date on the popular TV show, The Dating Game. What no one knew was that he was a prolific serial killer in the middle of a cross-country murder spree. In this six-part series, co-hosts Tracy Pattin (Hollywood & Crime) and Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) take listeners on an unbelievable journey into Alcala’s twisting secret life. He hid behind normal jobs as a typesetter at a prominent newspaper and a summer camp counselor. How did this predatory monster fool employers, prison psychiatrists, and parole boards — all while committing heinous crimes from coast to coast? And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of - The Dating Game Killer.

110: A Pretty Little Monster and a Planetary Enzyme

Calling all cool teens! Stop snagging and necking and tune into our horniest episode ever! In episode 110 Em covers the Goatman(person?) of Maryland. It’s unclear whether he’s a genetic experiment gone wrong, a hairy old introvert, or simply an urban legend. What we do know, however, is that he’s 100% axe. But that’s not all! Em gives us a bonus story this week - the Pope Lick Monster! Or as we like to call him, the Pretty Little Monster.  Meanwhile, Christine covers the story of Ira Einhorn, who considers himself Philadelphia’s very own planetary enzyme. However, we know him as a hypocritical, predatory murderer who did NOT invent Earth Day and also smells like a hoagie with onions.

56: Hell’s Carpet and a McDonald’s Airbnb

Welcome to episode 56, featuring a surprise ghost story from Em’s stepmom! Oh, and a full episode of creepy. Em covers the notorious Enfield Haunting, which inspired the Conjuring 2 and features a lot of walking furniture. By the way, Em’s source was most definitely NOT a Korean Teen Pop Sensation Blog. Just sayin’. Meanwhile, Christine covers the murders of the McStay family, who vanished near the Mexican border and resurfaced in shallow graves in the desert three years later. Their deaths remain a mystery to this day.  Come meet us at CrimeCon 2018 this May in Nashville, TN!

55: Big (Frat) Brother and a Dixie Cup Stethoscope

It’s episode 55, TAKE TWO! Sorry guys, Christine messed up. But we’ve still got a good one for you.

53: The Perm of the Century and A Call to the Apron Factory

It’s episode 53 and the *gasp* is back. This is maybe our scariest episode yet. Em covers Christine’s favorite topic, Black Eyed Kids (BEKs), whose eyes are voids as black as Em’s heart. Meanwhile, Christine covers the totally bananas story of Dolly Oesterreich and her “Bat Man” lover, who just wanted to drink bathtub gin and write pulp fiction, but ended up being arrested for murder.

52: A Reverse Pickpocket and There Goes Melinda

Get ready because who knows what the hell is going on in this episode. First off, Em covers the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, one of Canada’s most popular haunted locales. It features several ghosts, including one named Sam who may or may not wear a kilt, a phantom bride who fell down the stairs to her death on her wedding night, and three shadow people that were once the victims of a tragic murder-suicide. Christine’s story, though just as dark, takes a weird turn when she covers famous 90s Club Kid Michael Alig, who bashed his friend in the head with a hammer, poured Draino down his throat, and then decapitated him. What a (horrifying) world we live in. And that’s why we drink… Please support our sponsors!  Become a Fabletics VIP member and get two pairs of leggings for only $24 at www.fabletics.com/drink!

51: The One Where Ross Gets a Pager and a Moment of Silence for Google

This episode is a doozy. First, we find out Em’s post-life-tiny-house-minimalist agenda when Em covers the South Shield Poltergeist, who tortured an English family the creepiest way possible, with children’s toys. And guys, get ready for a big one - Christine covers our pal Ted Bundy, the charming sociopath who killed AT LEAST 36 people, likely more.  This episode is sponsored by: Ziprecruiter - Our listeners can post jobs on ZipRecruiter for free by visiting ZipRecruiter.com/drink!

50: Luvs ’N Laffs and an Alt-Right Turn

SASSY THE CLOWN IS BACK! In a big way. In episode 50, Em covers Loftus Hall, which is arguably Ireland’s most haunted locale. It once housed the devil himself, cloven hooves and all. Meanwhile, Christine covers the unexplained disappearance and deaths of the Jamison family in 2009\. There are plenty of theories, each one more bizarre than the last.  Big thanks to this week’s amazing sponsors, Lola and Fabletics.  Visit www.mylola.com and use promo code DRINK when you subscribe for 60% off your first order!  Become a Fabletics VIP member and get two pairs of leggings for only $24 at www.fabletics.com/drink!

49: Bananas in Pajamas and Your Friendly Local Kioskman

It’s a Flinstone/Jetson’s crossover! Em tells the podcast’s FIRST alien story, featuring Barney and Betty Hill, who were not martians, although they did get abducted by a UFO. Meanwhile Christine shares the story of the Lake Bodom murders, Finland’s most notorious unsolved homicide. There’s a lot to unpack in this episode, including the correct pronunciation of Bananas in Pajamas. (The jury’s still out on that one.) Just remember to always check your genitals.  This story is donated (you’ll see it on our tax return) to our loyal $25 patron Mio Diaz! Thank you for your support.

Listener Stories: Vol. 11

Happy New Year, everyone! If you're worried about staying up until midnight, these creepy af stories should do the trick. In our attempt to make a "holiday-themed episode," we instead end up dissing Furbies, crying about love in the afterlife, and mispronouncing countless words. Enjoy!
01/01/1851m 32s

48: The Island of Misfit Priests and the Easter Egg Rapist

Happy New Year from the future! Em tells the story of George Lukins (not Lucas), who was famous for his alleged demonic possession and the subsequent exorcism that occurred in 1788. Unfortunately, no “magic practitioners” were able to get him out of his mess. Not even Criss Angel. Meanwhile, Christine covers the Original Night Stalker, AKA the East Area Rapist (EAR/ONS). Lock your doors, cause he’s still out there. And be sure to call 1-800-CALL-FBI if you have any information. Zola is reinventing the wedding registry and planning process.

47: A Boozy, Goat-Horned Menace and an Unwashed Cup

Put on your “Satan regalia” and get ready to swipe right on the boozy menace more affectionately known as Krampus, German’s famous Anti-Santa. Kids these days don’t know how good they have it with their damn Elf on the Shelf! Meanwhile, Christine missed the Christmas memo and went with a story about Tamara Sansanova, AKA the Granny Ripper, instead. Sansanova casually made some tea and killed 14 people. But at least she’s still playing peek-a-boo in jail. If there’s anything that you take away from this episode, we hope it’s that 1) everything was a sex demon in the 1960s, and 2) your organs are garbage.
24/12/1758m 21s

46: Cinnamontown™ and Pastor Detective

Happy Froxing Day! This week Em and Christine discuss several disturbing stories, including the time Christine got her head stuck in a dresser. Em also tells Christine the story of the St. James Hotel in New Mexico, which was run by this guy named Henry who found most things, including the gold out west, to be unsatisfactory. Oh, he was also friends with a Land Baron named Lucian. Meanwhile, Christine tells Em about Pedro Lopez, AKA the Monster of the Andes, one of the most prolific serial killers in the world. Lock your doors, folks. We’ll see you at the Westin.
17/12/171h 8m

45: Excessive Murder and Miss Vatican

Welcome to episode 45, sometimes referred to as Sister Act 17 or Lizzie McGuire Goes to South Korea! In this episode, Em covers the Silent Twins, June and Jennifer Gibbons, who spoke a secret language and couldn’t function without one another. As a result, Christine and Em invent their own secret language. Sort of. Meanwhile, Christine discusses Joyce McKinney, the absolute loony-toons “stalkist raper” who made headlines in the 70s for the Case of the Manacled Mormon. Let’s put it this way: she only gets weirder with age. Thanks for listening and check out our sponsors below! PS If PETA comes looking for us, tell them we’re not here right now.

44: Turtle Tortoise and Frogger: lRL

It’s time for episode 44! Em covers a restaurant in Florida, but before you get too excited, it’s not Señor Frog’s. It’s called Ashley’s of Rockledge, or as we like to call it, the Loose Caboose. Meanwhile, Christine covers the crazy folie a deux case of Ursula and Sabine Erikkson, the identical twins who not only murdered someone, but also threw themselves into traffic NUMEROUS TIMES - and survived. Also, Em’s first memory is falling through their grandma’s legs, and Christine’s stepdad once drove over her mom’s foot. So hop on the Loose Caboose with us and ride some coattails!

43: A Hell-Roaring Camp and a Chick-en-Training

In episode 43, Christine is the Internet’s Apprentice and Em puts the “ish” in Jew-ish. Em covers the Bullock Hotel in Deadwood, South Dakota. (Pro tip: don’t work there unless you want an invisible, casually omnipresent ghost boss who throws your beverages across the room.) Meanwhile, Christine covers the long-awaited topic of the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders, a gruesome and tragic story of a serial killer who ruined the name “Wineville” for everyone. Hope you all enjoy this post-Thanksgiving episode. Oh, and if you know how to make a “Gio”-tag, let us know.

42: The Eternal Bromance and Pretty Little Liars 3:16

Hi, I’m Peter! This is episode 42, in which Christine gyrates from side to side and Janet just can’t get a break. Let’s just say things get pretty ~eccentric~. Em discusses the Harvard Exit Theatre, and Christine “throws Em a bone” and covers Ed Gein, a serial killer, handy-being, and unique interior decorator. Stay tuned for Listen: The Musical.

19/11/171h 22m

41: Dr. Carrot and the Score of Yore

Let’s just say this episode is a little out of control. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Em talks the Great Amherst Mystery, a terrifying poltergeist story from Nova Scotia, and Christine tells the story of Herb Baumeister, a serial killer with an affinity for mannequins. Oh, there are also flying potatoes, a pool of chardonnay, and a Psychic Called Wanda. Light a cigarette - er, lamp - and listen up.
12/11/171h 34m

40: A Fashion-Forward Victorian Ghost and Workplace Triangulation

It’s Gio’s Birthday-sode! And listen. It’s a doozy. Em covers the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, which once housed a circus-builder who “cured” cancer with watermelon seeds and is haunted by a ghost who does NOT wear capris. Meanwhile, Christine gets ~timely~ (and pretty graphic) with her coverage of Edmund Kemper III, the mofo featured in Netflix’s recent drama Mindhunter. And that is most definitely why we drink.

02/11/1743m 36s

39: A Girl Named German and La La Land 1 ½

Happy October 39th, where Christine doesn’t know exponents and Em doesn’t know calendars. Em tells the story of Anneliese Michel, the inspiration for the Exorcism of Emily Rose and one of the truest proofs of demonic possession in recorded history. Meanwhile, Christine talks about the Axeman of New Orleans, who chisels some panels and taps some faces. (It’s like the Purge, but with jazz music.) If there’s one thing you take away from this episode, we hope it’s the fact that we’re modern-day jesters, and Gio is the Venn diagram of our love. I promise that makes more sense in context. I think. Don’t forget to check out our incredible sponsors, Mack Weldon (promo code “Drink”) and Hello Fresh (promo code “Drink30”). You won’t regret it.
29/10/171h 25m

38: An Alli-Ghost and the Gilded Eleventh Ballroom

How are you peeling? Because it’s time for episode 38, in which Em throws Allison an epic birthday, the recording room is haunted as ever, and we find out Christine is the oracle of our time. Don’t worry, there are also ghosts and murders. Em’s story is San Antonio, TX. Wait, no it’s not. But it is IN San Antonio, TX. It’s called the Menger Hotel and it’s haunted by a rude lady knitting, children playing with trains, and Teddy Roosevelt himself. Meanwhile, Christine tells the story of this mo-fo named John List, a guy who pretends to be deeply religious but is actually just a plain old family annihilator. We cleanse our palates with a Gio-scope, brought to you this week by the Onion (and our good friend Theron). Let’s Scorpi-Go! Oh and Ernesto, if you’re out there, let me buy you a drink.
22/10/171h 28m

37: Kyle Columbus and The Napoleon Complex but with Cannibalism

Thanks, Mr. Bagans. In episode 37, Em talks about a self-sabotaging building called the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Christine razzle-dazzles with the story Issei Sagawa, the creepy cannibal who roams free (and whines about it) to this day. And that's why we drink!
15/10/171h 5m

36: A German Socialist Airbnb and a Myspace Lesbian Porno

It’s episode 36, and Gio Horoscopes are back - you’re welcome, Scorpios - but first you have to suffer through our stories. Em tells us about Cleveland’s Franklin Castle, which is haunted by murdered children, wanna-be spies, and partying German Socialists. Christine tells the story of the infamous Bathtub Girls of Ontario, who were NOT actors in a Myspace lesbian porno, but were actually two murderous children who got off easy for killing their own mother. And that’s why we drink…
08/10/1757m 12s

Listener Stories: Vol. 8

It’s our eighth listener’s episode! I know we say this every month, but it’s one of our best yet. In this episode we read your crazy stories, including a death-filled visit to LA, relentless Gettysburg ghosts, an aggressive poltergeist, and an encounter with our pal ZOZO! BUCKLE UP!
02/10/1750m 34s

35: A Popcorn Fortune and a Friend Named Squirrel

It’s episode 35, and we still haven’t left our plunger tent. Lord help us. In this episode we discuss the merits of guns in fighting ghosts, Em gives her best impression of a fire, and we record-scratch our way through a voodoo-related murder-suicide. Meanwhile, Em tells Christine about Wisconsin’s most haunted house, the Summerwind Mansion, and Christine tells Em about the New Orleans’ Rampart Street Murder House, where the tragic Zack and Addie murder/suicide took place in 2006. And that's why we drink.
01/10/171h 17m

34: A 200-lb Rat and the Dollar Store Plunger

Episode 34 is coming at you straight from our plunger fort! We’ve moved into the new “recording studio” but truly not much has changed…except the end of our intro song! We still talk booze, ghosts, and murder. This week’s stories include the terrifying San Pedro Haunting and the crazy story of Austrian serial killer Jack Unterweger.

33: Coughin’ on Coffins and #WereTheBride

The one and only Lisa Lampanelli joins us this week for an epic episode! Tune in to hear the Queen of Mean get her orphans mixed up, reenact her teenage fight with the devil, and tell us about her her new podcast, Stuffed, available now on iTunes. We didn’t forget about the ghosts and murder, though. Em covers the Rolling Hills Asylum, where orphans, vagrants, and single women built their own coffins, and where all three of us are apparently qualified to live. Meanwhile, Christine covers the infamous serial-killer-couple Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. This episode was sponsored by ModCloth, where you can find fashion as unique as you are.

32: Father Beelzebub and 4,000 Salutes

In episode 32, we learn about the princes of hell and their love of philosophical chats. We also discuss whether Velma from Scooby Doo got Lasik Eye surgery by now and reveal some exciting news at the end of the episode! More importantly, this episode features the demonic possession of Anna Ecklund, who was hexed by her father at a young age and lived with demons for her *entire life* and Luka Rocco Magnotta, a really terrible guy who does really terrible things to both kittens and humans. This episode is sponsored by Classic Kevin - one of our favorite $25 Patreon donators! Check Mirths and Monsters out here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mirths-and-monsters/id1273301982?mt=2
10/09/171h 26m

31: Pretty Woman Status and the Paranormal Prairie Podcast

In episode 31, we quickly learn that this is not a history podcast, so leave your note-taking at the door. Other notable moments include Christine’s pants falling off, the announcement of our first Facebook Live event, and the monumental discovery that Em’s grandmother published a book on menopause. As far as stories go, Em takes Christine back in time to drink a couple a’ cowboys under the table at the Driskill Hotel, and Christine takes Em back in time to their glory days as Millennial Spiritualists in Southeast Kansas, hanging with America’s first serial killers, the Bloody Benders. And that’s why we drink!

01/09/1746m 18s

30: Slagpot Wormwood and Em’s Nomadic Clown Life

Episode 30 doesn’t disappoint. It’s quite a doozy, so don’t say we didn’t warn you. Christine shows off her (very limited) knowledge of the steel industry when Em tells her about the Sloss Furnaces, an extremely terrifying and haunted landmark in Birmingham, AL. Meanwhile, Em is haunted by more disembodied feet and Christine’s lame dad jokes. Then, Christine finally bites the bullet and tells the tragic tale of Sylvia Liken’s death. (Don’t blame me - you guys asked for it!) All we can say is, you think it can’t get any worse, and then it does. This episode is sponsored by Coke/Dope.* *Not really. Please don’t sue us.
27/08/171h 31m

29: Seasonally Employed Ghosts and the Scottish Tim McGraw

Mercury’s in retrograde, guys…don’t say we didn’t warn you. We learn why Em doesn’t wear pink dresses and why Christine doesn’t wear white. It’s pinafore-ific! First off, Em tells us about the the Jefferson Hotel in Jefferson, TX, feat. suicidal brides, sleep paralysis, giggling children, shadow people, unwanted cuddling, AND MORE. This place is a hot-spot for creepiness. Christine isn’t actually a murderer but Peter Thomas Anthony Manuel SURE IS! There’s a reason he’s called the Beast of Birkenshaw (not to be confused with the Beast of Birkenstock). Lock your doors, Scottish friends.

28: Fannie and the Floppy Disk

We've arrived with our compact discs, haphazardly! Welcome to episode 28, in which we discuss Louisiana's haunted Myrtles Plantation and the tragic murder of Rebecca Schaeffer by her celebrity stalker. (Oh, we also try and speak in Welsh, Christine explains badminton, and Em tells the story of her vanishing keys...)
13/08/171h 16m

27: Mr. Carbunkle and A Science Class Murder

It's episode 27! Christine and Linda meet (spoiler alert: there are fireworks), we learn about Christine’s “baby watch,” and Christine and Em solve age-old Australian murders. Honestly what DOESN'T happen in this episode?! Oh right, also: Em tells Christine about the Monte Cristo Homestead (AKA the most haunted place in Australia) and Christine tells Em about the tragic murder of high-schooler Skylar Neese. And that's why we drink...
06/08/171h 10m

Listener Stories: Vol. 6

It's time for our sixth episode of listener stories! Ugh, everything is about YOU GUYS, isn't it? Jk, we love you all and thanks for doing such a good job of creeping us out!
02/08/1731m 47s

26: Homo-cidal Birdman and the Confessions of Shauna K.

Welcome to episode 26, featuring Alcatraz and serial killer Mark Twitchell! Christine’s phobia of birds is tested when Em tells us about “Birdman” and his baby canaries. Meanwhile, some guy chops off his own fingers and another guy decides he’s the real-life version of Dexter. If you want to date him, he’s on a Canadian dating site for inmates and is into “chess and rain.”
30/07/171h 12m

25: Ghostly Frenemies and Alcala-ism

We’re officially 25 episodes deep! Em tells us about all the ghosts of the White House. Christine senses a large hat when Honest Abe shows up, and a naked Winston Churchill gives him a run for his money. Christine tells the story of the mo-fo Rodney Alcala, also known as the Dating Game Killer. This one sounds like a made-for-TV movie, but we promise it’s all real. And that’s why we drink!
23/07/171h 25m

24: A Ouija Board PSA and Lessons on Limes

Welcome to the smooth sounds of episode 24, in which Em and Christine most likely summon ZoZo the Ouija Board demon by accident and go on to talk about a demon in his own right, the family annihilator Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes, who killed his family and vanished in 2011. Lessons learned this week include: 1) Stop playing with Ouija boards, and 2) Lime is a type of rock.
16/07/171h 11m

23: A Demon Named Adele and Oceans 11:06

In episode 23, Christine sees her first ghost (but her second proposal). We also have a special guest…and find out Em is a reverend! Em tells the story of Roland Doe/Robert Mannheim, which inspired the one and only Exorcist. It’s full of demons, priests, and blood, AKA it’s a mess and a half. On the plus side, we learn some Latin! Meanwhile, Christine tells the story of George Joseph Smith, the perpetrator of the infamous Bathtub Brides Murders. Prepare to be mesmerized by his “baby little beady creepy eyes.” And that's why we drink!
09/07/171h 19m

22: Vicious Vices and a "Shaved Off" Shotgun

It's Em's Lucky Number 22! And she got judged by a criminal. In this episode we also learn that Em and Christine have no morals - just give 'em a hundred dollars and they'll acquit you. Tune in to hear Em and Christine discuss the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and Robert Reldan. Get ready because it's a wild ride.
02/07/171h 0m

Listener Stories: Vol. 5

Thanks for scaring the pants off us in our fifth listener's episode, guys. The stories this month are bananas. And that's why we drink.
02/07/1748m 6s

21: Four Pounds of Uneaten Bacon and A Deeply Holy-Some Blonde

Take a trip with us down the extremely windy road of episode 21, in which Em compares Christine’s upcoming wedding to an axe murder and we also discover Em’s alter-ego is a wacky waving inflatable tube man. Em and her gelatinous limbs tell us all about the Villisca Axe Murders, while Christine’s story about the still-at-large killer Robert William Fisher the turns into a sort of dark version of Sesame Street.
25/06/171h 20m

20: Fun Times in the Body Chute and Em’s Hairy Torso

You’ve asked, you’ve begged, you’ve pleaded…and we finally succumbed to your requests - episode 20 features the one and only Waverly Hills Sanitorium (not Sanitarium, we checked) as well as a pretty terrible guy named Gregory Scott Hale. In this episode we ask the important questions: Is it more acceptable to eat people if they’ve been cooked? Where can I find Jesus the biggest? What’s so traumatizing about a torso? Perhaps most importantly, we get our **FIRST FAN MAIL** but our excitement quickly devolves into concern when we can’t decode its mysterious symbols. (For real guys, if we go missing, blame this anonymous person in Utah.) Christine also rescues a bug, but Em doesn’t approve of that segment. And that’s why we drink!
18/06/171h 19m

19: A Great View of the DMV and There’s No Such Thing as a Fun Best Friend Murder

Welcome to episode 19, in which we learn that there’s no such thing as a fun best friend murder. PLUS, we have our first-ever guest! Em’s childhood best friend and longtime paranormal partner Deirdre tells a kick-ass ghost story about the Hilltop House Hotel, giving Em and Christine the chance to gasp simultaneously (this is a rare experience, folks). Then, Christine tells Em and Deirdre about teenage murderer Christine Paolilla, who had the fun nickname “psycho” and may or may not have ripped her weave off amidst her high-school angst.  This episode is brought to you by unWine.

18: An Even Worse Eyeball Story and the Adventures of Captain Midnight

**DISCLAIMER: this episode is very graphic. And very disturbing.** Em must have known Christine was tired of being the bad guy, because she went NEXT LEVEL with her disturbing story. No joke, DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN LISTEN TO EPISODE 18. And if you do, at least put some money aside for their future therapy sessions.  (Oh and if you’re wondering, this week’s topics are the LaLaurie Mansion and the Craigslist Killer.)
