Ghoul on Ghoul


Dec 9, 2021

Amanda and Sarah stay true to their dynamic with a look at an antique affliction and a road trip gone wrong. Sarah explains Glass Delusion, a mostly medieval-era condition where the sufferer believes their bones. body parts or surroundings are made of glass. Amanda heads back to Australia for the mystery of the Tromp family disappearance. Other topics covered include smoke-free bars, regional pizzas, and audio-only Friends

Recommendations:

Sarah kind of recommends the EPIX horror series Chapelwaite. Amanda kind of recommends the 1977 horror film The Hills Have Eyes, and definitely recommends the 1978 movie The Shout and the YouTube channel Shrouded Hand.
