Ghoul on Ghoul

Mar 20, 2020

Amanda and Sarah take to Skype for a special COVID-19 self-quarantine edition of Ghoul on Ghoul. Amanda covers two outbreak-related, but light-hearted subjects with Imogene Rechtin's war on kissing and the story of John Bigg, the Dinton Hermit. Sarah gives an overview of the variations and possible origins of Sheela na gigs, mysterious, decorative church carvings of figures spreading their vulvas. 


Sarah recommends The Blair Witch Project. Amanda updates her recommendation of Attack on Titan
