We decided to take a slightly lighter subject after a heavy episode this week. Tonight, we dive deep into the emergence of spiritualism and the creation and demonizing of the Ouija Board. We end it all with a couple of listener tales specifically referencing some Ouija Board madness! Come on in, it is spooky as hell in here! Visit our sponsors!

Today's episode is a tough one, but it is one that we think is important to share. Kelly Anne Bates was a 14 year old child when she met a much older Dave Smith. While her parents helplessly looked on, she slipped further and further into his grasp until finally, he snuffed her out in one of the most gruesome murders to date.  During this uncertain time, we know a lot of people have found themselves quarantined in a dangerous situation, quite possibly with their abusers. Kelly's story is an extreme case but it is a reality for those in abusive relationships. If you find yourself in trouble, here are some ways to reach out for help: Advocates at the National Domestic Violence Hotline are available 24/7 at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) in more than 200 languages. Battered women’s support services 604-652-1867 or send us an email at intake@bwss.org Call 604-687-1867 or 1-855-687-1868 or text 604-652-1867 Last week, local authorities in Spain and the Canary Islands have advised victims of abuse to go to their pharmacies and to use the code word ‘mask 19’ for help. In the UK, the Independent Office for Police Conduct advises anyone who feels afraid of being overheard when dialing ‘999’ to listen to the questions from the phone operator, respond by coughing or tapping the handset if you can and press ‘55’. https://www.elle.com/uk/life-and-culture/a32015540/domestic-violence-covid-19-code-word/ Visit out sponsors!

It's an Ash Mini, guys! Because Alaina still has to work through the Covid19 pandemic, Ash took this one on and slayed the game. The brutal murders of James and Denise Closs and the horrific abduction of their daughter Jayme is something we probably all remember dominating the headlines in 2018. Luckily, the story has as good an ending as we can hope for in a tale like this one and Jayme emerged a warrior who used her strength and wits to survive and now thrive while her abductor Jake Patterson rots for the rest of his life.

Tonight we are getting weird and spooky. In a true, "Don't try this at home" moment, we dive into the world of scary-ass spooky games to summon spirits and the occasional demon to play some games with you. Honestly, just talking about these games will chill your bones but please, don't try this at home. No one wants a groaning daemon who won't leave after a rousing game of hide and seek.

Paige Doherty was a sweet, beautiful, kind, hardworking young girl. At only 15 years old, she was working part time at a hair salon in Scotland hoping to one day become a stylist.

Featured heavily in 1990's documentary on the Harlem drag ball scene, Dorian Corey was a legendary queen and an iconic performer. However, a dead man, partially mummified with a bullet in his head was found in her closet after her death in 1990 and instantly made her name synonymous with something decidedly less glamorous.
