E220 Astrophysics Improv and the Owl Queen

Did you want to learn science from someone who just learned it yesterday? Well, welcome to episode 220 in which we do our best to understand multiverses, black holes and spaghettification (which we promise is a real term) all because Em researched the wrong topic. But as space lovers we were enthralled with the Back Door Theory, because honestly the idea of being torn apart atom by atom is just as scary as any cryptid. Em promises to bring you the Back Rooms Theory (also not the Back Woods Theory) next week. Then Christine pays homage to early pandemic binge watching trends with the story of Joe Exotic, his escalating rivalry with fellow big cat lover Carole Baskin and a murder-for-hire ploy that's only the tip of this chaotic iceberg. Christine also gets to practice her dramatic lyric reading skills... and that's why we drink! Please consider supporting the companies that support us!

Get ready because episode 219 is a chatty one! What is a paper mâché nose doll? Who are mothman's grandchildren? We've got wild speculation on both this week and two fascinating topics: First Em takes us back into old school medium territory with the story of Helen Duncan aka Hellish Nell aka Scotland's Last Witch. It involves way more cheesecloth than you think. Then Christine covers the mysterious case of the Somerton Man aka the Tamam Shud case, which involves more secret pockets and ear measuring than you might think.

E218 A Skeleton's Waiting Room and Christine's New Screen Name

Is that the voice of the wise owl in the woods? Is it the ghost of a grandma who wants to cremate her cares? Or is it Chrisitne in her old elementary school play costume trying to infiltrate a secret society? This week on episode 218, Em takes us deep into the Bohemian Grove, an exclusive club and "summer camp for presidents" with some wild allegations attached to it. Then Christine closes out her first two-parter with the conclusion of her story on Richard Ramirez, the "second-hand" nightstalker and true terror of a serial killer. We also contemplate some gossip we have to bleep out and Satan's divine intervention... and that's why we drink!

Does this melodious voice sound familiar? Maybe even like it was cursed by a witch in order to achieve paranormal radio stardom? That's right, we have the one and only Terry Carnation from Dark Air as our first, best (and only) guest.

Happy 2021 and episode 204! Christine has already met her quota of songs sung to Em, but don't worry she has more. This week we're starting the new year with a bang as Em brings us the story of the Golem, straight out of Jewish folklore. Then Christine covers heavy hitter Son of Sam and throws Em back to stories Linda told of living in the area Son of Sam terrorized. We also speculate on the horrors of Fantasia and we, like Golem the Pokemon, would also like one hundred candies in order to evolve... and that's why we drink!

We've got an equal split of wild paranormal stories and true crime connections, like the truth behind who spotted Richard Speck's notorious tattoo that led to his capture.

E202 Spiritualist Chippendales and the Murder Situation Show

Would we want to have our pants unbuttoned in a dark wardrobe by a bunch of spiritualists? We ponder this and many more hard hitting questions this week as Em brings us back to the booming age of American Spiritualism with the story of the Davenport Brothers and their tricky wardrobe.

E201 Pi Day Advent Season and a Ouija Planchette Flasher

Episode 201 is one linguine all the way to the top! Mostly because we discover that if we die under strange circumstances and there's not a ouija board session with us entered as witness testimony, we'll be pissed. This week Em covers the Fox Sisters, whose claim to fame is foot cracking and accidentally founding American Spiritualism. Then Christine takes us to Australia for the wildly mysterious death of Phoebe Handsjuk and a deep dive on the science of trash shoots. And maybe we're just a product of our times, but we're not sure we would recognize the specific sounds of coffin-making... and that's why we drink!

E200 The Burbank Fish-Flopper and a Homicidal Rhombus

Episode 200 is finally here!! Can you even imagine a world in which Christine doesn't know Em is a clown?! Or that Em would be surprised that a member of Christine's family set a bear loose in town? We're taking quite a few walks down memory lane today and we've got some fun, throwback announcements to go with it! We just released a kick ass, limited edition ATWWD comic book that brings our very first episode to life! We also released vintage merch that's lived with us in all our recording studios (and Em screen printed with their very own hands). Em also made us all a digital escape room so we can celebrate together from afar. And we've got some surprise guest appearances from Lemon (who is safe and sound and quarantining with Em) and the story of a newly blossoming, real life friendship with Farmer Bob. For our stories today we decided to keep with the throwback theme and revisit the topics from our first episode: The Winchester Mystery House and Jonestown! We had a blast giving these OG topics a fresh coat of paint with our current research methods. We even discovered some new details we missed the first time around, like the Winchester Mystery House is even more of a fire hazard than we previously thought and Jim Jones just might have been the only straight person in the entire world. Most importantly, thank you to everyone who has stuck with us on this wild ride. We can't thank you enough for helping us spiral this small idea of ours into the chaotic fever dream it's become. We couldn't do it without you! But perhaps most importantly, even after 200 episodes, you can still call us daddy and we'll sell you a monkey... and that's why we drink!Get your copy of our brand new, kick ass comic book and vintage merch here: atwwdmerch.comCheck out Em's digital escape room here!

Always Christine, never the coroner... this week on episode 199 (wow, so close to 200!) we're still battling side effects of our new medications but are wholeheartedly embracing all the many and varied ways we could feel uncomfortable next! We've also got some big and mysterious stories to distract us this week as Em takes us on an epic Scottish adventure to Loch Ness. That's right, Em is covering the legend of Nessie (and their potential love interest with some Xiinön-level falsies)! Then Christine covers an unsolved mystery that will leave you contemplating chimneys, folded clothes and cabins in the woods in the story of missing Colorado teen Joshua Maddux, also known as the Boy in the Chimney. And do you think Nessie could have been a vacuum cleaner this whole time? Either way, Em may have officially sent Christine over the edge and into the loch... and that's why we drink!

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.
