Hello, Lovelies! Pretty much everyone has heard about MKUltra and the use of LSD by the CIA during the middle of the Cold War, but have you heard of Operation Midnight Climax? No? Well, this project, which was run by George White with the help of Sydney Gotleib, involved brothels, spikes cocktails, and secrecy. Join us this week as we have a lot of feelings over a subject that doesn't have necessarily have a reason for the events. (Yes, Tiffany and Ashley are still annoyed at Rebecca for telling them about this open ended subject).This week's drink break is brought to you by Fataliteas!

Hello, Lovelies! As you can tell by the title, this episode might be considered NSFW (depending on where you work). This week, Tiffany has more fun festivals to tell you about! The two festivals we cover are centered around the Kanayama Shrine, located within the grounds of Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine in Kawasaki and the Harvest Festival (Hōnensai), both located in Japan. This episode the innuendos fly as Tiffany gets giddy over her episode while Rebecca wishes she has more to drink. There could be a more detailed episode description, but the title this week suffices.This week's drink break is brought to you by Kinkcast! Want to check out this podcast?

Hello, Lovelies! Ever heard of Mary Anning? Well, neither have we until Ashley introduced us to this incredible woman. Mary lived in Lyme Regis in Dorset England and enjoyed fossicking (also known as fossiling) on the cliffs near the seaside. One day, Mary and her brother found a skull after a storm had come through the area. After thinking about it, they realized if there was a skull there should also be the rest of the skeleton. Join us as we not only discuss the many discoveries that Mary found (such as the ichthyosaur, a plesiosaur, and others) but the patriarchy surrounding the field of paleontology in the late 1800s that she had to deal with. Suffice it to say, this episode rocks. (ba dum tss)This week's drink break is brought to ya'll by the awesome Deadtime Stories Podcast!

Hello, Lovelies! Have you ever heard of Raëlianism? (a.k.a.

This message caused Claude to start the International Raelian Movement. It was at this point Claude changed his name to Raël. Weird? Rebecca thought so too.
