I had searched far and wide for a podcast about the paranormal without much success. As I jumped down the the vortex of true crime podcasts I finally stumbled upon a show about how true crime and the paranormal intertwine. Little did I know, this podcast had already built a strong following by pulling in 5-star ratings on the chats. The reason for their success is clear – hosts Christine and Em are so damn endearing.
The podcast is essentially about why they drink. Christine is a fan of alchohol (wine) and Em is a fan on milkshakes – so they don’t discriminate. The friends from LA split their duties respectfully as Em typically covers the paranormal aspects of the story, leaving the true crime to Christine. They pull the listener in each episode by sharing their personal stories on why they are drinking that week, which makes you feel like you are hanging with some friends casually – all while talking about things from mass suicides to aliens. Yes…aliens.
Because the structure of the episodes is so relaxed it makes the two-hour episodes seem to fly by. I find myself enjoying this well researched and fun listen on Saturday’s when I have some time to kill and need to scratch the true crime itch. I even had a drink with them while listening to this the other night!
