Ghoul on Ghoul


Mar 27, 2020

Amanda and Sarah weather another week of self-isolation with an episode about beachy shenanigans. Sarah opens with a rivetting folkloric tale from her home state of North Carolina about a love that lived on after death. Amanda preaches the word of Aimee Semple McPherson, a famous evangelist whose mysterious disappearance during a trip to the shore caused a nationwide sensation. Other subjects include not having parties and crying if we want to, and mundane sexual fantasies. 

Recommendations:

Amanda recommends the comforting yet intelligent joy of Cartoon Network's Steven Universe. Sarah recommends the two-part adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Pale Horse
