October 22, 2021

Jean Grenier, a teen boy in 17th century France, had a troubled home life. When he left home to try to survive on his own, no one could have guessed he'd make history as the youngest person ever convicted of lycanthropy. 

Also, Amber explains how a headdress can be indecent, and we discuss the devil's proclivities.

Old Timey Crimey #133: Haunted Dolls - ”Disembodied Voices”

October 1, 2021

Spookyween commences with an examination of dolls that just so happen to be surrounded by weird activity. It's a total coincidence, clearly. Also a coincidence: that the podcast host wouldn't allow us to upload episode art.
