Hello, Lovelies! This week we are joined by Rachel and Margie from Textual Tension Pod! (Seriously, look it up and binge after you're done with this episode) Unbeknownst to us Margie chose this week's episode topic to surprise Rachel... So we're talking about space and aliens! Ashley starts with Tom DeLonge (previously a member of Blink-182) who got way too invested in discovering aliens and what the government was hiding regarding that subject. Next comes Rebecca with literally all the science and, much to Ashley and Tiffany's dismay, nerds out with Rachel. (Statics is real, ya'll!) Finally, Tiffany wraps up with a faith that originated in Brasil that is most well known as The Valley Of The Dawn. Join us on this intergalactic episode as we discuss the truly odd and eerie.

Hello, Lovelies! This week, after spending quarantine with her parents, Rebecca has a Bible story for us! (She's fine, we checked) Ever wonder if there was a scientific explanation for certain biblical events? This week we discuss 10 of them. Specifically, the plagues of Egypt! When Ramses II, the then current pharaoh of Egypt, steels his heart and won't let the people of Israel go because a random shepherd named Moses asked him to, ish gets whack real fast. From blooming algae to volcanic explosions, Rebecca dives into the story, the science, and more frogs! (Sorry Ashley...)

Hello, Lovelies, and welcome to the first Terrific Tales with Tiffany! Did you know parachuting animals is a regular thing? (yeah, neither did we). This week we talk moments in history where parachuting animals into location was the only viable option... somehow. From beavers to bats we discuss the many ways animals have parachuted and whether or not Tiffany is still allowed to pick her subjects. P.S. No animals were harmed during the research or recording of this episode.

Hello, Lovelies! This week Ashley tells us the tale of Bill Ramsey. Starting as a young child, he started suffering from episodes of turning into a werewolf. (It's at this point Tiffany got ridiculously excited and stayed excited during the rest of the episode) Bill would randomly turn into a werewolf throughout his adult life... until he encountered Ed and Lorraine Warren. Join us this week as we discuss werewolves and Tiffany howls way too often in excitement.

Hello, Lovelies! (Apologies in advance for the potato audio quality... Rebecca fixed what she could and if you hop to 28 minute mark you'll miss the most of it) This week we are joined by Zach Auld of Cast Junkie and the creator of the Cast Junkie Discord Server (on which you can talk to not only your favorite ladies but tons of other amazing podcast creators!) Being our guest, Zach chose the subject of "Paranormal". Ashley tells the tale of Rowena from the Rotherwood Mansion in Tennessee; a tale full of unfortunate events, plenty of hauntings, and enough demonic activity that we get a Tiffany uncomfortable pretzel in record time. Tiffany, purposefully misunderstanding the assignment, tells us of the ghost town of Centralia, Pennsylvania, a town that was abandoned after the coal mines that weaved their way under the town. Rebecca tells the short but sensational tale of a murder-suicide that started as a lovers quarrel in Waddel Hall of the apparently famous University of Georgia. (She's a Yellow Jacket ya'll, she's not a fan of the school down the road). Join us this week as we get to share the scares and listen to Tiffany attempt to sneak comfort chocolate while recording.

Hello, Lovelies! What happens when Rebecca doesn't want to do her own notes and one of her friends mentions they're bored? This episode! Brought to you by a good friend of the show, we get the joy of discussing STOCKHOLM SYNDROME! In 1973 Jan-Erik Olsson walks into the Sveriges Kreditbank, pulled a loaded sub-machine gun from under his coat, shot at the ceiling, and yelled “The party has just begun!” After taking a couple of fugitives with him, they camp out in the bank vault for 6 days. Lots of shenanigans, math equations, and author's notes take use on this crazy journey that explains how Rebecca became part of the podcast. (Meanwhile, Tiffany IMMEDIATELY got stockholmed for Olsson... We're so grateful to Ashley for her years of service in keeping Tiffany safe) Join us on this crazy journey that feels appropriate, and especially excited, considering we're all still sheltering in place.

Hello, Lovelies! This week Tiffany talks about one of her person hero, Catherine the Great of Russia. While being a great empress Catherine is more well known for... other things... specifically furniture that features genitals. (Yay, uncomfortable Rebecca!) Sit down and join us this week as Ashley and Tiffany get way too excited over chairs and Rebecca questions again why she started this podcast.

Trigger warnings: Cult activity and child abuse. Hello, Lovelies! This week Ashley starts talking about sandwiches, specifically the Yellow Deli, then we take a sharp right down bonkers street and end up talking about The Twelve Tribes community. (Spoiler: Absolutely a cult) While the group has origins in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a handful of Twelve Tribes communities have popped up all over the world. Join us as we get real uncomfortable as we discuss the past and present of this group and start drafting "Starting A Cult For Dummies".

  Hello, Lovelies! This week we have the honor of Jennifer from Haunted Happenstance! And she has an awesome paranormal story for us! (Much to Tiffany's dismay). Soon after his honeymoon, Andrew Lanier, a Confederate soldier, was captured by the Union Army. He was eventually sent to Fort Warren where his bride literally overcame currents to get to him. After a series of unfortunate events that ended in a failed escape attempt from Fort Warren, both Andrew Lanier and his wife were executed. In true over-dramatic southern belle fashion, Mrs. Lanier is said to now haunt the passages of Fort Warren.

Hello, Lovelies! This week we get another Random Facts with Rebecca! This episode's theme: The ocean! (Tiffany was NOT happy). First, we discuss the Salish Sea Soles, which is the story of the shoes washing up on shore in the pacific northwest. Second, we discuss colossal squids, deep water, and sperm whales. (It's at this point Tiffany almost quit the podcast altogether) And, because she's not a total butt, Rebecca wraps up this episode with the Baltic Sea Anomaly! Discovered by a Swedish team using sonar equipment, the image is theorized to be anything from Nazi technology to Aliens. Join us as Rebecca avenges Ashley and Tiffany gets SUPER uncomfortable. P.S. Our apologies for the static. Rebecca tried all the technical magic she (and her IT guy) knew and couldn't eliminate it from the audio. (Don't worry, a fix is in the works to prevent it in future recordings) Merch: https://theladiesofstrange.com/merch/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/theladiesofstrange Links to our social media and other fun stuff: https://www.theladiesofstrange.com/links/
Hello, Lovelies! This week Tiffany gets WAY took excited about a random festival and Ashley is WAY not impressed about it. Ever heard of the Puck Festival held yearly in Ireland? Apparently, instead of discussing the history of St. Patrick's day, Tiffany decided to talk about the Puck Festival! This festival, occurring yearly at Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland, quickly makes Ashley question why he friends are the way they are. Basically... a goat is captured and placed on a pedestal until the end of the festival. Confused? Same.

Hello, Lovelies! This week we get real. Ashley briefly discusses a little bit of the science behind anxiety, something we're all familiar with, before we dive into our personal journeys dealing with anxiety. Don't worry, we handle it our with our typical banter, bad puns, and still can't pronounce "behavioral".

  Content Warning: This week we discuss mental illness, time served in the military, and thoughts of suicide. Hello, Lovelies! Large Male Tiffany is back! Tiffany presents a medical oddity that hits close to home, Gulf War Syndrome. Almost 30 years after serving as a Marine in the Gulf War, Ernie started experiencing migraines that imitated strokes. As symptoms started compiling, including memory loss, Tiffany and her family came across an episode of Diagnosis that looked oddly similar. This week we discuss the journey Large Male Tiffany, Tiny Female Ernie, and their family have taken so far in learning about this disease. Pull up a chair as we discuss the Gulf War, Gulf War Syndrome, and how Tiffany's family handles heavy subjects. (Be prepared for emotional whiplash, ya'll) This week's drink break is brought to you by Boston Harbor Horror!

Hello, Lovelies! Happy Valentine's Day! What's this romantic holiday all about unless we cover a little bit of true crime?This week, Ashley's story has everything from bootlegging, to mobs, to murder. On February 14, 1929 in Chicago, 7 men were killed in what would later be known as the Valentine's Day Massacre. Today we talk about Al Capone, how he may or may not have been involved, and about the beginnings of forensic ballistics.

Hello, Lovelies! This week we have the wonderful Kate from Ignorance Was Bliss Podcast joining the Ladies this week! This week Kate presents the amazing story of Burke and Hare. We discuss grave robbing, how medical schools supplied their required classes, and of course, murder. Join us this week as Ashley gets way to excited about poking things with sticks and Kate does a wonderful job telling this gruesome tale.

Hello, Lovelies! This week Rebecca teaches us about one of those historical characters that was a bit too eccentric to not talk about, Lord Timothy Dexter! What does coal, cats, and 40 wooden statues have in common? This guy! Known for his ridiculously lucky entrepreneurial ventures and how much disdain he caused his neighbors, he quickly becomes Tiffany's new hero (once she gets over Rebecca covering something she's had bookmarked for forever). Our favorite part might be the page of punctuation he added to his best-selling book, "A Pickle For The Knowing Ones", but that's just us. Join us this week for early continental America tomfoolery and listening to Tiffany silently steam about her topic being swiped.

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."

I love this podcast but you girls really need to tone town the giggling. I usually don’t comment on this kind of thing but I was finding it hard to follow along when you laugh every 2 seconds, especially because there are 3 of you. Just thought you ladies should know since this podcast usually has great content and the constant laughing can take away from the flow of the episode.
