Ghoul on Ghoul


Mar 31, 2022

Amanda and Sarah realize that the kids aren't alright with two stories about supernatural sightings. Sarah covers the famous Cottingley Fairies photo hoax, and how it affected the lives of the two young girls behind it. Amanda heads to the Isle of Wight for the absolutely bonkers case of the Sandown Clown, a mysterious being that may have visited two children. Other subjects covered include being khaki crazy, fangirling on Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and dreading Aries season.

Recommendations:

Amanda recommends the first episode of Atlanta season three and the film The Green Knight.
