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.

How do you get a book to go flying off the shelves? You could put a provocative cover on it, or try old-fashioned reverse psychology - warning readers to beware. The books we're about to mention don't need help with marketing. According to cursed owners they literally throw themselves off the shelves. 

Join Adrienne and Leo in Part 1 of Cursed Books as they discuss the creepiest manuscripts in the Western canon.

41: Organism 46-B

June 9th, 2021

Ghouls love cryptids, an animal claimed to exist but never proven. Adrienne and guest, Leo Buckley of San Francisco Bay Area band, Hazzard's Cure objectively debate about a giant squid attributed to have murdered a few Russian scientist upon its discovery. Sticking to the tropes of a really good (or really bad) B movie it can hypnotize, shape shift and shoot deadly venom. Don't forget the part where Putin has designs to use it for military purposes.
