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

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.
