Ghoul on Ghoul

Jul 8, 2021

Amanda and Sarah can't drive 55 for this episode about cases connected to highways and bi-ways. Amanda indulges her twin fearsination with the story of Ursula and Sabina Eriksson, identical Swedish sisters who pulled a shocking folis a deux on the M6 motorway in England. Sarah pulls to the side of the road for a look at phantom hitchhikers. Other topics include bad improv, pre-teen coffee, and clear plastic kink. 


Amanda recommends the Netflix true-crime series Sophie: A Murder In West Cork and the movie Dead Ringers
