Ghosts Are Not the Move

Happy (almost) Halloween! We talk the appeal of ghost stories with help from the AV Club, wax poetic about the subreddit ghoststories, and the persistence of creepypasta. Then we swap some stories about Alcatraz, the Tailypo in West Virginia, and romantic mishaps with a suddenly shy ghost called Karen.

Happy belated Canadian Thanksgiving! We're celebrating our neighbors up north with an episode on Canadian spoop. With tales of Shaq-sized beavers, poltergeists who throw bullets, hags who cause sleep paralysis, and a cookie with a sordid past, you'll want to grab some maple cookies and settle in for a great time.

Courtney is back from New Orleans! Hear all about the ghosts and spooky history of the Big Easy from the above ground burial traditions to streets owned by boss ladies who don't take kindly to fathers-in-law attempting their murder. Meet a handsy ghost via dowsing rod, learn some of the horrors perpetrated by Delphine LaLaurie, and close it out with our favorite voodoo queen Marie Laveau. And wish Sasha a happy birthday!

It's officially the birthday season for your favorite Spoop hosts, so we're talking all things ZODIAC (except the killer). Get the deets on what it means to be a Libra sun sign Aquarius ascending like us, some of the history behind the western zodiac, and the folklore behind the animal-centric eastern zodiac. Also learn why Courtney's only birthday crisis was her love of Hozier and our birthday goal of loving ourselves as much as Lizzo wants us to.
