So sorry, everyone, we have to reschedule. We have a demonic assault penciled in for 3pm today.

On the true crime side, Christine, hot off her jaguar-filled honeymoon, tells the tragic story of the death of Tina Watson, who died under suspicious circumstances while scuba diving in Australia on her own 2003 honeymoon.

Hamilton fans, rejoice!

Meanwhile, Christine discusses the disappearance and murder of Barbara and Patricia Grimes, a case that is still open to this day, despite the interrogation of a steamfitter, whatever that is, and a drunken psychic.  (Also, get ready to turn down the volume, because this episode has more singing than is appropriate.)

8368
It’s episode 60, and we’re bringing our A-game, if we do say so ourselves. Em covers the Central Indiana State Hospital for the Insane, a psychiatric treatment hospital in Indianapolis that saw a lot of inhumane treatment, patient suffering, and possibly an emotional support canary. Meanwhile, Christine covers the Yorkshire Ripper, AKA Peter Sutcliffe, AKA Peter Pan, who murdered countless women and also jumped into some graves. By the way, if you’re wondering, Em is not a pier.

57: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Zombies and an Em-vis Impersonator
5189
It’s episode 57! Em’s story - the urban legend of Russia’s 1940s sleep experiment - is bananas. In Christine’s words, “What the actual hell, Em.” Meanwhile, Christine discusses the ~timely~ case of the David and Louise Turpin, who held their 13 kids hostage for years in a California “house of horrors.” If we needed an excuse to drink, that would be it.  Come meet us at CrimeCon 2018 this May in Nashville, TN!

56: Hell’s Carpet and a McDonald’s Airbnb
8388
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!

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
5883
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. Additionally, Em was groped by a ghost and Christine can’t subtract by two.

52: A Reverse Pickpocket and There Goes Melinda
5340
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
6984
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
5127
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
5109
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.

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!

48: The Island of Misfit Priests and the Easter Egg Rapist
3580
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
3591
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.

46: Cinnamontown™ and Pastor Detective
4191
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.

45: Excessive Murder and Miss Vatican
4877
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
5034
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
4141
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
5044
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.

41: Dr. Carrot and the Score of Yore
5736
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.
Nov 12, 2017
40: A Fashion-Forward Victorian Ghost and Workplace Triangulation
5344
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.

39: A Girl Named German and La La Land 1 ½
5198
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.

38: An Alli-Ghost and the Gilded Eleventh Ballroom
5397
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.
Oct 22, 2017
37: Kyle Columbus and The Napoleon Complex but with Cannibalism
4031
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!
Oct 15, 2017
36: A German Socialist Airbnb and a Myspace Lesbian Porno
3522
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…

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.

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.

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.

20: Fun Times in the Body Chute and Em’s Hairy Torso
4852
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!

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
3865
**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.)
