In this episode, we learn not to tangle with the women of Earlswood, that love can grow in the darkest of places, and that those apples aren’t real apples.
S02E09: Recycled silk parachutes and garments made from escape and evade maps. Honestly, what’s hotter than lingerie made from the very map that helped your hot RAF pilot boyfriend escape the Nazis? Nothing! The romance novel practically writes itself.
Weird graves: Don’t want your dirty little secrets beautifully carved, and publicly displayed? Better stay out of Romania.
S02E08: Interesting epitaphs and headstone symbology. Thanks to chisels, stone, and, for some reason, zebras, the dead don’t need to be ghosts to communicate with the living!
(If you can explain the zebras, please get in touch. We’re so confused.)
Cryogenics: So, are there just, like, a bunch of frozen bodies all hanging out together somewhere?
S02E07: Green burials, body farms, and the inner workings of tombs, vaults, and mausoleums: We jump into the world of burial and interment, and somehow come out on Team Mausoleum. (We’ll also take Team Grad Student Road Trip, pending availability.)
Spooky bitches, we raise our poison rings to you!
S02E06: The Night Witches (the Nazi-bombing war heroes), and Lilith, the original Night Witch (possibly a demon, a goddess, or Adam’s first wife): These badass babes have at least one thing in common: if they’re around, you definitely won’t be getting any sleep.
Patreon Dispatches from the Curiosity Shop 20: Paint It Zak: The Fucking Cecil Hotel – Ghost Adventures Special
In which Natali is introduced to Zak Bagans.
OH MY GOD!
S02E05: The Ring of Senicianus (The Real ‘One Ring to Rule Them All’ that inspired Tolkein?) and the Prague Orloj: Meet a cursed Roman artifact that just might lead to Hobbits and an astronomical clock with a rumored penchant for murder. (This is why we can’t have nice historic things.)
Fabric is deadly, dyers are magical chemists, and black jet is really fucking expensive.
S02E04: Mourning attire and practices and black widow murderers: You know, when you think about it, it’s actually kind of unclear which one of these categories is more deadly.
