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.
