    You know that thing where you try to make sense of a topic, and it simply refuses to click? I have that about certain corners of the internet, specifically the weird ones where creepypasta, ARGs and Cursed Images are formed.    I also have that about teenagers.   So what better way to try to make sense of it all than to combine those things, by asking my 17-year-old daughter to join me and explain her mysterious online life?? I'm not sure I succeed in applying rational thought to much here, but I manage to sneak in a word about the Slenderman assault in Wisconsin, and groupthink, and even the Salem Witch Hysteria.    I feel a little... mush-brained... after editing this one, but I hope it makes sense to one or two of you out there. There are bigger, more organized things are in the works, but I didn't want you to have to wait for those things. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Promos this week from Martinis and the Macabre and Best Forevers.   Links as referenced in episode: Night Mind channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC58IKuPHnZkdCZ6T5mSRGCg Nightmare Expo Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpFFItkfZz1qz5PpHpqzYBw The Wyoming Incident: Supposed original tv broadcast hijacking footage: https://youtu.be/IBHkW0aKHRc The Wyoming Incident Explained: https://youtu.be/UghBGvPepSQ The Human Pet Explained: https://youtu.be/vjyC8TqYCgA Marble Hornets full original series: https://youtu.be/IBHkW0aKHRchttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCACDEE1E71FC8E5E AlanTutorial Explained: https://youtu.be/MVExoZ5QMWs Mushroomland Explained: https://youtu.be/1HRiXT6-z3U   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   http://IWBpodcast.podbean.com http://www.patreon.com/IWBpodcast IWBpodcast@gmail.com or IWBpodcast on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram
