In the meantime, Grandpapa Emothy is bringing us a wild haunting from Connecticut in the Trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, also known as the "Devil Made Me Do It" case. Then Christine takes us to England for the chilling White House Farm Murders. And in case you've ever asked that age old question, "when will I ever need to know math in the real world?", we've got an answer for you and it's apparently while telling ghost stories... and that's why we drink!  Please consider supporting the companies that support us!  Calm is offering a special limited time promotion of 40% off a Calm Premium subscription at CALM.COM/DRINK Visit athleticgreens.com/DRINK and get your FREE year supply of Vitamin D and 5 free travel packs today!

Sit back, relax and enjoy our chill 90s coffee shop vibes this month, boozers and shakers. Let us set the stage: you're walking back to your seat with a scone and a London Fog in hand. Maybe you're wearing a black turtleneck, maybe you're even wearing one of those weird shrunken crinkle shirts that had no right being as popular as they were. You hear the snaps that tell you the last poem is over and a new artist is about to take the mic. You chit chat with the friend you dragged with you for moral support, until you hear it... the most mournful, dulcet tones you've heard all night. They're speaking of love, loneliness and the dangers of lamp light. Their red eyes meet yours as they deliver their well rehearsed verses and for a single second that holds all of eternity, you're locked together in this supernatural moment.

Welcome to episode 211, where this week we're spreading the bad news so it doesn't turn into worse news... Join us as Em dives even deeper into the world of conspiracy theories for the second part in their series on QAnon. They cover the antisemitism at the root of it, just how people are getting sucked in and the rumors about who could be behind the infamous Q poster. Then Christine takes us back to Psych 101 class with the case that prompted not only the Bystander Effect but the origins of 911 itself, the murder of Kitty Genovese. We also look into Kitty's badass life as a bartender, "bookmaker" and girlfriend.

The Opportunist tells true stories of regular people who turn sinister simply by being opportunistic. How does an everyday person turn into a thief, a cult leader, or a scammer? Instead of portraying criminals as distinctly “other,” we explore our similarities and reveal the dark potential lurking inside of all of us. The Opportunist will launch with an episodic series on Sherry Shriner, a midwest mom and life-long church goer turned internet cult leader. The series follows Sherry as she gains thousands of followers online by promoting her own religion (a blend of biblical doomsday predictions and popular alien/reptilian conspiracy theories) and profits on selling spiritual weapons that defeat aliens and demons. As she rises to the status of infallible goddess, she leaves a trail of death and destruction in her wake. We speak with family & friends of deceased cult members, prosecutors, police officers, a high profile cult expert and more. Through thought-provoking interviews and investigative reporting, The Opportunist invites the listener along with us on a thrilling journey of discovery.

Let's plunge into it! Episode 210 celebrates all things lemon and plunger related as we also spill bread crumbs all over the floor... That's because Em is taking us on a very timely journey through the wild web of beliefs of the QAnon conspiracy theory. Then we segoo flawlessly into cult territory as Christine takes us to Antelope, Oregon in the 80s to cover the Rajneesh Movement and their plan to poison an entire town. We also learn how Christine finally made the cut for Hoboken Style, baby! ...and that's why we drink!  Here are some real sites you can visit for more info on the fight against human trafficking:  freedomunited.org humantraffickingcenter.org assetcampaign.org The National Human Trafficking Hotline: 1.888.373.7888 Please consider supporting the companies that support us!  Calm is offering a special limited time promotion of 40% off a Calm Premium subscription at Calm.com/DRINK Right now, you can go to HuntAKiller.com/DRINK and use DRINK, for 20% off your first box!

Happy February! We've got DJ Love and DJ Cupid in the house... but we rewound live radio so we're actually not sure those are the final names we're going with. This month we've got quite the smorgasbord of mind-bending tales, some involving love, some obsession, maybe even a little Bigfoot spoken word poetry in the mix. Definitely make sure you listen to the very end for an especially mind-blowing story. We'll give you a hint, it involves Zak Bagans!

Be careful with your bread this year, everyone! It's episode 205 and we're already worried about what we could manifest even with just sandwich predictions.

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!  Please consider supporting the companies that support us!  FabFitFun is the only subscription that delivers full-size, self-care and wellness products straight to your door.

Welcome to 2021! We're only predicting sandwiches this time around. We decided to scale down our manifesting this year and just focus on food... remember when we learned the history of the word "quarantine" mere weeks before the epidemic hit. Yikes! We're just so glad to be here in the new year with you all and reading your creepy stories. This month Em dubs the theme "poop your pants" scary. 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. We also hear from a listener who was cursed by our listeners episode about curses caused by the podcast.

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. Then Christine takes us to 1996 and Christmas day in Boulder, Colorado for, you guessed it, the notorious JonBenét Ramsey case!

Welcome to our big 50th listener stories episode! In honor of such a milestone, we're covering the hard hitting topics you've always yearned to know more about, like "does every dead guy have his name changed to Walt in the afterlife?" and "if you buy 12 cakes and your grandfather's ghost eats 9 of them, how many do you have left?". We also have a very special theme this time around: How ATWWD Cursed Me. We're chilled to our very core by all your creepy experiences related to the podcast.

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!  Please consider supporting the companies that support us!  Don’t wait.

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!

Just started listening to this podcast, and 1 minute in, I'm already loathing Christine's vocal fry. Blech!

I love you, Em, but please don’t step on eggshells around anti-Semitism. Most people, including a huge number of my fellow progressives, don’t give a flying fuck about anti-Semitic tropes. As someone who has received multiple anti-Semitic death threats online from *leftists who claim to be tolerant*, these tropes are not just present in QAnon. And QAnon IS anti-Semitic. Let’s call a spade a spade.
