Funcle Em strikes back! We're drenched in buffalo plaid and Canadian cheer this week - Christine is back from Halifax and has brought Em an entire souvenir shop's worth of Canadian swag.

And, boy, does Bruce McArthur prove that point. PS. Does anyone want to do some dark magic involving artisanal peanut butter with us? ...and that's why we drink!

Calling all cool teens! Stop snagging and necking and tune into our horniest episode ever! In episode 110 Em covers the Goatman(person?) of Maryland. It’s unclear whether he’s a genetic experiment gone wrong, a hairy old introvert, or simply an urban legend. What we do know, however, is that he’s 100% axe. But that’s not all! Em gives us a bonus story this week - the Pope Lick Monster! Or as we like to call him, the Pretty Little Monster.  Meanwhile, Christine covers the story of Ira Einhorn, who considers himself Philadelphia’s very own planetary enzyme. However, we know him as a hypocritical, predatory murderer who did NOT invent Earth Day and also smells like a hoagie with onions. Moral of the story: contrary to popular belief, the world could use a little _less_ hugging. And that’s why we drink!   Please consider supporting the companies that support us!

Happy March, everyone! Did you know that knowledge is power and just because you're dead doesn’t mean your education has to stop?

Em covers the Jerome Grand Hotel, which is full of bearded ghosts, headless ghosts, and best of all, cat ghosts. The hotel is also inexplicably proud of its ancient elevator, but we’d advise against using it. Next up, Christine picks one of Arizona’s many female murderers, Wendi Andriano, whose terminally ill husband just wasn’t dying fast enough for her liking. **TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE for this week’s live shows - visit andthatswhywedrink.com/live for more info!** Get 15% off your first Thirdlove purchase when you go to third love.com/drink For 40% off all subscriptions, visit mylola.com and enter DRINK40 when you subscribe.

Spirit of Christine, are you there? Scratch us with three claw marks if you want us to leave this kiddie pool of wine by your grave! In the last episode before we hit triple digits, Em covers reportedly the most haunted hotel in Great Britain, the Rams Inn of Gloucestershire. This obviously brings us to the age-old question: is it grave desecration to give spirits brownie batter?

So sorry, everyone, we have to reschedule. We have a demonic assault penciled in for 3pm today. But in the meantime, Em brings us a movie report of the Vatican exorcist, Father Amorth, and how the director of the Exorcist (the film) witnessed his first real-life demonic possession. On the true crime side, Christine, hot off her jaguar-filled honeymoon, tells the tragic story of the death of Tina Watson, who died under suspicious circumstances while scuba diving in Australia on her own 2003 honeymoon.

Come closer…. we have a secret to tell you… we're certainly not going to vomit a chicken into your mouth. This week Em takes us step-by-step through the myths and transformation process of the terrifying Filipino vampire/zombie/boogie-person, the Aswang. And Christine shares the life and lies of Henry Lee Lucas's infamous, though often exaggerated, career as a serial killer. His horror-scope proves VERY virgo. We also might have been both personally haunted and true crime-d during the recording of this episode so strap in for a wild ride… and that's why we drink!
