Hey You Guys

Destiny here! Due to factors beyond our control, Rhea and I are going to put the podcast on hiatus until November 11th. Until we return, we ask that you support your local comedy scene, watch as many scary movies as you can, and make sure you're drinking enough water. Here's a gif of Chris Evans doing a thing. Because why not?

Episode 37: Eternal Craving for Smooth Peanut Butter


This week, the ladies keep up the spooky goodness and chat about Stephen King! Rhea and Destiny also discuss the steamier side of caramel apples, the steamier side of dinosaurs, and the not-so-steamy appeal of Jean Rollin movies. Rhea finally wrote a theme for Comic Book Corner! Destiny can't pronounce "vampirology"! RED RUM IN THE MIDWEST, YOU GUYS!

Spoiler Alert for the following: 
We talk about a ton of Stephen King works, but the main work that gets spoiled is The Shining.

Corrections: Everett McGill played Big Ed on Twin Peaks. Trick 'r Treat was made in '07 and released in '09.

Episode 36: Texas Chainsaw Massacre Break


This week, we're getting real spooky as we kick off horror month! Rhea talks robot bees, takes back last week's Terminator feelings, and discusses the fine manga of CLAMP. Destiny watches a horror film every day, questions the death of cinema, and is attacked by animals in her sleep. We also discuss pop culture-related fears from childhood, including mirrors, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and a particular spooky vhs tape.

Spoiler Alert for the Following:
Terminator 2
Jaws

Corrections: The Hills Have Eyes (1977) was not the follow-up to Last House on the Left. The Nolan Strong tribute album is called Daddy Rockin' Strong. Robert Shaw played Quint in Jaws. The Masters of Horror episode featuring sound is called "Sounds Like" and was directed by Brad Anderson.
