The Ouija Broads: Tales from the Pacific Northweird

Cursing Spokane

November 6, 2017

This one is kinda dark! Devon explains the origins and alleged effects of the curse that Jimmy Marks placed on the city of Spokane. 

CW:

  • The curse was a reaction to some shitty behavior toward the Spokane Romani community, which we discuss.
  • We also briefly reference the word "gypsy" at the beginning to explain why we aren't using it in the rest of the episode (except when mentioning the title of a documentary about Jimmy).
  • Jimmy also alleged that the sexual assault of a disabled woman was the result of a curse, and we mention it briefly.  
  • We also briefly allude to Colonel Wright's horse slaughter.

Secondary topics: Fruit of the poisonous tree; just a different kind of rock; how we'd react to curses; hex trends; internet arguments.
