Ghoul on Ghoul


Mar 5, 2020

Amanda and Sarah head to different parts of the world for dives into early witch history and cabin fever. Sarah goes back to 1300s Ireland for the story of Alice Kyteler, the first recorded person condemned for witchcraft in the country. Amanda longs for the coming of spring with a look at how cabin fever may have caused multiple cases of madness and murder in the Antarctic. Other subjects covered include an eyeball injury, a bean mystery, and an adventure in nipple clamps.

Recommendations:

Amanda just kinda recommends the show Good Omens
