Welcome to episode 258, boozers, shakers and Wine & Crime Coven! We're so grateful to kick off our last month of Christine's parental leave with the Wine & Crime gals, starting with Kenyon! First, Em covers a story close to Kenyon's past with the haunted Castle of Good Hope. Then Kenyon brings us the notorious tale of Lavinia Fisher and the Old Charleston Jail. And P.S. if Timmy gives you a bouncy ball, you just might have given your soul to Timmy... and that's why we drink!

Welcome to episode 257 where we deep dive into all of our hyper-fixations! Most importantly, for Xandy's last episode we have not one, but two lighthouse stories for you. First Em tells the spooky tales of haunted Point Lookout Lighthouse in Scotland, Maryland. Then Xandy takes us across the pond to the country of Scotland for a murder case in Little Ross Island Lighthouse. And don't worry, the Funcles will reunite at some point in the future, so stay tuned... and that's why we drink!

Happy New Year! It's episode 256 and we're not judging any vegans today but we certainly are judging anyone who loves candy corn as much as Xandy. Buckle up as Em finally takes us to Savannah with the story of the Olde Pink House and some bricks that just wanted, in their soul, to be pink. Then Xandy covers a true crime case he first heard sung about in German by his father, the case of Fritz Haarmann aka the Butcher of Hanover. And please leave our peanuts alone... and that's why we drink!
