Hello, Lovelies! In this short but sweet episode, we learn happens when over 2 millions gallons of molasses and faulty engineering collide. A tidal wave of Molasses that leveled Boston, Massachusetts's North End in January of 1919. Why did Boston have so much Molasses? How is this incident related to the Titanic? Can Rebecca pronounce names and correctly use pop culture references? (Absolutely not, unfortunately. Sorry guys, she tried.) Join us this week as we learn about this incredible but harrowing historical event that someone decided to write a musical about.This week's drink break is brought to you by the awesome Dirty Bits Podcast!

Hello, Lovelies! Tiffany has an incredible story for you this week. After being told that his medical exams could wait and that the war effort needed him, Eugene Lazowski was promoted to Second Lieutenant and became a military doctor for Poland during World War II. After narrowly avoiding death many, many times, he reunited and married his long lost love, Murka Tolwinska, after Poland had surrendered. He quickly took it upon himself to help his fellow countrymen and the country he loves, a fact that eventually led him to joining The Resistance. After having a run-in with the Gestapo, he loosened a few boards in his backyard fence with the idea that it would serve as an escape route if needed. Instead, it opened up a portal to the Rozwadów Ghetto, allowing the Jewish who lived there to receive medical treatment from Lazowski. Part of Lazowski's job involved sending lab results to a German lab, a process that sometimes took weeks. Eventually, he hatched a plan with Stasiek Matulewicz that cleverly faked lab results to show a typhus outbreak. (And it's any reason we gave Eugene the Glen Coco award this episode?) Join us as Ashley and Rebecca learn about this incredible doctor and all he did for his community and country, all to annoy those pesky GermansThis week's drink break is brought to you by The Goth Librarian Podcast!

Hello, Lovelies! This week, Ashley has a doozy of a story for you. Jasmine Richardson and Jeremy Steinke (who claimed to be a 300 year old werewolf a fact that we have A LOT of thoughts on) of Canada met and fell in love. Since Jasmine felt like she was being mistreated by her parents (she wasn't) they hatched a plan. With the help of Steinke, the pair committed what would later be known as "The Werewolf Masacre". Is this story messed up? Yes. Do we learn that Rebecca likes fire and handles stressful situations with bad attempts at humor? Also yes.CONTENT WARNING: Due to the nature of this story, we mention child abuse, self harm, and, while we don't dive into the specifics, we do briefly discuss how the Richardson family was murdered.This week's drink break is brought to you by SNAFUD!
