Ghoul on Ghoul


Feb 6, 2020

Amanda and Sarah get very giggly in this especially offbeat episode. Sarah stays local with The Pig Lady of Cannelton, a real paranormal feast with all the trimmings, including elements of true crime, haunted encounters, history, and so much more. Amanda comes in hot with a side of mustard when she describes Pretzels for God, a food-based religious movement started in the 1970s. Other subjects covered include a Grimm movie review, car candles, and fabulously festive egg smashing. 

Recommendations:

Amanda recommends the 2012 found-footage horror movie, Leaving D.C.
