Merry Christmas Tanner! Let's all go tap-dance on Em's coattails. This week we both accidentally end up in Salt Lake City, which seems to be a pretty messed up place (no offense, SLC). Em tells the story of Kay’s Cross, arguably the most haunted spot in SLC. It’s full of demons, shadow people, and an alarming amount of cult leaders. Oh, it also exploded. Meanwhile, Christine covers a different kind of horror, the murder of Franklin Bradshaw, a wealthy grandpa with a cardboard briefcase and oatmeal full of amphetamines. We also learn that Em went to modeling school and Christine…well, didn’t. And that’s why we drink!

I'm from Gary, and didn't live too far from this place. It's a scary thing to be close to. Even though the house is gone I still don't want to go anywhere near where it was.

I knew the second you said the word goon it was from a fellow Aussie. I drink goon too but but have never liked proper wine. Lots of different types of goon so different bags pegged to clothesline and all look the same in the bags, never know what your going to get..... except drunk and hungover!
