The Buffoonery is Endless

Come in for lighthearted tales of ghosting, both the dating kind and the supernatural kind! First get firsthand accounts from the Spoop hosts (and a dramatic reading of an excerpt of a veeeery long email from the ghost) and people with bad Tinder experiences. Then journey through some silly ghost stories, including one about a rogue texting ghost, a prankster ghost in an antique shop, and a very wet (wink wink) lady ghost. Also a news update about a certain object that should be put back where we found it to maybe undo some of the 2020 chaos...

All Animals are Good

Bork bork bork! This week, we sniff out myths and folklore surrounding DOGS. From corgis and their relationship to fairies to various Japanese dog spirits to Celtic hounds to ghost dogs, no bones about it - dogs are heckin' mythical. Plus a slight detour into birds that make weird noises (looking at you, lyrebird!) and things we call our cats.

Less Willow, More Whomp

We're tackling UNSOLVED MYSTERIES that we love to ponder over this week! (Not the show, but the concept.) Warm up with Sasha's tale of two escape rooms and a discussion of THE SNACKET which has once again returned to ruin our lives. Then Courtney dives deep to answer the question Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm? (Spoilers: It was spies. Or maybe witches. Or maybe other spies. OR OTHER SPIES.) And Sasha gives an overview of the Kecksburg UFO incident, the escape from Alcatraz, and the murder of Tupac Shakur.

 

Part two is coming next week with EVEN MORE unsolved mysteries, so if you have a fav for us to cover, hit us up!

Forrest in the Falcon Lair

We're getting saucy this week to prepare for Valentine's day with a discussion of the sexier side of the paranormal! First we rate the hotness of historical figures who are probable ghosts, then we hang with two very sexy ghosts: Marilyn Monroe and Rudolph Valentino. Finally, we dive into some folkloric aphrodisiacs and the sexiest crystals you could ever dream of. (PLEASE NOTE: This is a bit racier than our usual episodes, so be prepared!)

Give Pixiu a Butthole

Happy (belated) Lunar New Year! Celebrate by taking a look at some of the spoop behind Chinese and Okinawan Lunar New Year tradition, like the demons who are defeated by fireworks, good luck foods to eat, and ways to usher in prosperity. Then meet Bai Ze, the monster version of wikipedia, and some of the 11,520 mythological beasts Bai Ze warned us about.

Maxwell Gets Got

This week we welcome back special ghost Maxwell from Relic to discuss spooky, cursed, and haunted treasurers! Get the skinny on Father Crespi's vanishing Babylonian (???) treasure trove, Folly Island's curses on curses on curses and one pirate ghost that impact pirate booty, and King Atahualpa's lost gold that curses everyone who tries to find it...and Maxwell, who tries to talk about it until he abruptly vanishes too. :oooo (spoilers: he pops up again and is fine...as far as we know!)

Victorian Ghosts Laying Bagpipe

When we think of ghosts in the modern era, we often think of them in Victorian garb and spinning spooky stories from the 1800s...but why? Find out (ish) this week on Spoop Hour when we delve into the Victorian ghost story, including why they became so popular & why they might persist. Also answer the question: What has vampires, King Arthur, the Victorian era, and Tesla? (Spoiler alert: our new favorite ridiculous video game.) And finally, embrace some rumors about Queen Victoria with the tales of John Brown the servant ghost and the queen herself's ghostly successor.

Death by Choco Balls

POISON. From Shakespearean times to modern political subterfuge, poison is a staple of weird and spooky murders. Hear about Hercules's poison robe, Hamlet's poisoning uncle, and the urban legends surrounding poison Halloween candy. Then hear a bananas story out of Japan about the Mystery Man with 21 Faces and his poison candy extortion plot.
