Ghoul on Ghoul

Aug 2, 2018

Amanda and Sarah double down on the phenomenon known as the doppelgänger. Sarah goes in deep on Percy Bysshe Shelley, the prominent English Romantic poet who encountered his doppelgänger multiple times before his death. Amanda tells the short but extremely creepy account of Emilie Sagee, a teacher haunted by a double she couldn't see. Other subjects covered include eating hair, German terms for sex acts, and how much Lord Byron sucks.

Sarah recommends the short story "The Fetch" by Robert Aickman, most easily found in the collection The Wine Dark Sea.
If you need a break from the macabre, Amanda recommends reading Where Am I Now? True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame by Mara Wilson.
