Hello, Lovelies! Welcome to Tiffany's episode covering the Winecoff Hotel in Atlanta! This building claimed to be fire-proof, and went as far to claim itself to be the Titanic of hotels. (foreboding, much?) While the hotel itself was fire-proof... the stuff inside was not. This week we dive into why a small fire was able to cause such havoc and was the reason for many of the regulations buildings are required to follow today. Oh, and ghosts. Wait, isn't this Tiffany's episode? Oh boy, strap in, ladies and gentlemen, as Tiffany tries her hand at the spooky. This week's drink break is brought to you by the incredible podcast, Haunted Happenstance! This podcast features a truly spooky series of ghost stories set in Boston, Massachusetts. Join the host and follow along a series of events that can only be explained as "haunted happenstance."

Hello, Lovelies! TRIGGER WARNING: We get REAL DARK this week, so please put your mental health first if you need to and tune in next week. Henry Louis Wallace seemed to lead a relatively normal life while managing a Taco Bell in Charlotte, North Carolina (see where we're going?). Ashley tells the Ladies this dark true cime story about a serial killer, that would eventually be dubbed The Taco Bell Strangler, as we learn again Rebecca's coping method for literally everything is humor. This week's drink break is brought to you by 3 Spooked Girls! 3 Spooked Girls is created and produced by two long-time ghoul friends that have an obsession for the paranormal and true crime. Come hang out with the girls weekly (sometimes multiple times a week) and hear about all things that go bump in the night.

Hello, Lovelies! This week we have the incredible CK (host from the show Mirths and Monsters and Infernal Souls and Eternal Arseholes) joins the Ladies this week! And boy does he have stories for us. CK tells us all about Selkies and their origins in Ireland (and we rename fanny packs during that conversation). This somehow spirals into a prolonged discussion about Jason Mamoa? Yeah, we're not sure how we got there, canoes were involved somehow... Anyway. Once we finish up talking about Selkies, we move on to Fin People! Having a hometown of Inn Hallow, a town with a lighthouse, that also somehow is twinned with a real place? (CK is in charge this week) We quickly dive into the underwater patriarchy with that one. Join us this week as we giggle way too much and enjoy these tales from across the pond. P.S. Sincerest apologies for the audio quality. Trust us, it bothers Rebecca like you wouldn't believe.

Hello, Lovelies! This week Rebecca brings her first cryptid! This week we talk Jackalopes. Are they real? Are jack rabbits real? (yes) Why does this creature have ties to Douglas, Wyoming (self proclaimed Jackalope capital) and the Alpine Forrest in Germany?

Hello, Lovelies! Christmas morning, 1945, Jennie Sodder was awoken by a loud bang. After going back to sleep, she woke smelling smoke and promptly alerted her husband, George, and eldest children. After making it out of the house with the youngest, Sylvia, they realized the younger five children (Martha, Betty, Jennie, Maurice, and Louise) weren't outside. After not being able to find the ladder that was always kept by the side of the house and not being able to start the trucks, the family didn't have an option but wait hours for the firefighters to arrive. After not finding remains, the house was bulldozed and a garden was planted. But... the parents got suspicious after the police and firefighters couldn't find anything. Theories ranging from the Italian Mafia to a less than honorable father. What's our opinion? Well, Rebecca and Ashley are on the same page and by the end of this episode Tiffany is confused. Wait, wasn't this her episode? Anyway... join us this week as we dissect this case and come up with our own theories.

Hello, Lovelies! Have you ever heard of Anansi? Did you know he brought stories to humans? And wisdom? This week Ashley tells us the tales of Anansi.

Hello, Lovelies! Welcome to the episode where Tiffany goes from 0 to 100... again. In March of 1944, Aimo Koivunen, a Finnish soldier, found himself under chase by the Russians. On skis. Not to be taken without a fight, Aimo and his comrades start trying to escape on skis. After hours, Aimo decides he needs a little help and takes a little (ok, a lot) pervitin. What's pervitin? Join us this week as we giggle about soldiers on skis and Tiffany basically giggles the entire time.

Hello, Lovelies! (DISCLAIMER: we do briefly talk about sexual assault this episode, so if that is a sensitive topic, please put your mental health first and tune back in next week) This week, Tiffany takes a singular source from 1590, and runs wild with it.  “How wild?”, you ask. As wild as a werewolf (the Bedburg Werewolf to be precise). Peter Stumpp was a wealthy farmer who sold his soul to the devil for a magic girdle (or belt… whatever) that turned him into a werewolf on demand.  Was he actually a werewolf? (Duh.) Was he a serial killer with a lot of body hair? Did the 1580’s (mis)understanding of mental health issues play a role in his conviction?  Or was Peter just a victim of the Catholic witch hunt against Protestants? Tune in and decide for yourself as Tiffany attempts to seduce you with ye olden language and girdles. Remember! To enter the giveaway make sure to leave us a rating and review!

Hello, Lovelies! Have you thought about retirement? Ever heard of Willem de Kooning? Well, neither had we until Tiffany told us about today's story. In 1985, his painting, Woman In Ochre, mysteriously disappears after a couple is allowed to enter a museum early. (Spoiler, they did it). Shortly after, the guard discovered that the de Kooning was missing from its frame. In 2017, after the deaths of Jerry and Rita Alter, their nephew is going through the estate when a random painting is sold to a local antiques dealer. After more than one shopper pointed out the painting looked an awful like a de Kooning, the dealer decided to get this painting checked out. Join us this week as Tiffany tells us this exciting story while we talk the most about art we've ever talked about.

Hello, Lovelies! Welcome to the episode that's dedicated to the notorious Area 51! (Aren't we clever?)

Hello, Lovelies! Have you heard about the Craigslist Ripper? The Giglo Beach Serial Killer? What about the Long Island Serial Killer? These might be three different people, or one crazy, sadistic person. Either way, Tiffany is telling us all about it this week. When Shannon Gilbert goes missing in 2010 after an erratic episode, the search for her opens a can of worms no one was expecting. As bodies of sex workers were being found along various roads and marshes in Long Island, New York knew they had an issue on their hands. As more is uncovered, not only are there multiple suspects but there are multiple victims that span almost the length of 20 years. Join us this week as Tiffany tells us about this wild tale as Ashley and Rebecca pay rapt attention to the craziness. As a special surprise this week, Tiffany has asked her friend Leah to tell us about what we can do to help this group of people who are statistically more likely to come in harms way. (like, 18% more likely. We discuss this during the episode.) More can be found about the organization Leah works with in this week's blog post on our website. This week's drink break is brought to you by An Hour of our Time Podcast! This podcast chooses a new topic each episode.
