52: Killer Physicians - Linda Hazzard

March 30th, 2022

What gives alternative healers such a bad rap? Naturopathic medicine is a wonderful way to avoid habit forming prescriptions. Lemon Balm is like taking a Xanax without the Xanax. Tonics made with hibiscus extract and ashwagandha root are a healthy relaxing substitute to liver damaging alcohol. 

Enter serial killer physician, Linda Hazzard and her alcoholic vanilla extract addicted side-kick. Leo and Adrienne discuss the infamous quack's Olalla, Washington sanitarium, aka Starvation Heights and the numerous deaths Hazzard caused through her insistence one must suffer for the cure.

47: Resurrecting Lafcadio Hearn Part 1

October 20th, 2021

Leo and Adrienne resurrect author, Lacadio Hearn. A man whose life was just as horrifying as the Japanese parables he translated to make available to the west. 

Is it ox hour? Adrienne and Leo juxtapose Shinto and Buddhist beliefs to Roman Catholicism, and go down a rabbit hole predestined to haunt them for 7 lifetimes.

Can another recording during tiger hour reverse this? Probably not, but this episode was promised, and with promises eternally binding The Ghouls resurrect Lafcadio Hearn.

Dedicated to the memory of Kaoru Allen.

Deep in Mendocino County Adrienne interviews Mr. X about Spy Rock and his take on David Holthouse's Hulu documentary series Sasquatch. Attempting to get more information on who Bigfoot Gary is, the interview takes a hard unexpected turn as Mr. X dodges questions and attempts to end the interview multiple times. Less than forthcoming with further details on certain aspects of the outlaw community, Mr. X does reveal more important personal information Adrienne hadn't anticipated.
