51: Linda Hazzard and Starvation Heights, Part One

February 12, 2018

Liz terrorizes Devon with the tale of Linda Hazzard, the "starvationist" who ran a ghoulish sanitarium just outside Olalla, Washington. Content warning: Scary controlling lady, medical abuse, lots of death, enemas, calorie restriction, gynecology stuff. Also a siren pops into the background of Devon's audio at one point, super sorry. 

Secondary topics: The emperor of maladies; a new sideshow act is invented; sounds like a brewery, smells like a bakery.

Special Guest Episode: Mario, Made in Washington

January 30, 2018
One time, Liz asked Matt if he ever would sub in if Devon was sick or unavailable. Matt was very into it and prepared an episode about Washington State's native son Mario. And how could we leave something delicious like that just sitting on the shelf? So Liz and Matt taped this episode for you, and here it is to brighten up your Tuesday with a surprise treat.

A sort-of-lost episode… The Stanley Hotel

December 22, 2017

Here's the story with this one... we were using Zencastr, and something odd happened when we both spoke at once. It gets blippy. (Zencastr said they'd look into it but we never heard back.) So this isn't our peak audio product, and I'm not putting it on the main feed as a result. But Devon still did a really good job with the story, and it's an interesting one, so I'm putting it here for anyone who wants to check it out. (It's on Patreon, but you don't have to be a patron to hear it.)
