Disturbing Interests

Do your conversations kill the party? Do you find yourself getting "that look" due to your extensive knowledge about turn of the century asylums? Have you ever wondered if there is a market for human skin books? If so then we are the podcast for you! We are pulling the dark things out from the shadows and throwing them into the spot light, to be talked about while we sprinkle in some comedy and cursing. We are not making fun of these topics, rather, we are laughing in the face of the dark out of sheer bullheaded defiance. We make the bold move and look up the stuff that you don't want in your browser history for plausible deniability if no other reason. Because with us, you might be disturbed, but you're not alone....

Get in the wayback machine, loser. We're going clubbing in the 90s.  The best time you could have in giant moon boots, glitter eyeshadow and thrifted lederhosen until it really, really wasn't.  This is the story of Michael Alig, the ultimate Party Monster and his role in the infamous Club Kid Murder of Angel Melendez.  *Content Warning: we will be talking a lot about drug use in this episode, so if that's problematic fo...

In this fun filled episode Regina takes us back to the Himalayas with a trip to the worlds worst swimming pool.  That's right, it's cold, it's high up, it might have wet yeti, that's right it is Roopkund Lake!  Some of you might know it better as Skeleton Lake, because of all of the bloody skeletons.

Then Lynn brings us back closer to home with the story of Pennsylvania, the state that really wasn't.  Find out th...

In this episode Lynn gives us a book report on what is easily the worst book in history the Malleus Maleficarum and the truly terrible person who wrote it.  Want witch hunts and gallons of innocent blood? Cause that book is how you get it.

Regina brings us the quirky tale of Vernon Florida and years of a surprising type of alleged insurance fraud.  Called Nub City for a reason, and gators have nothing to do with it.

In this episode Regina hits the story a little too close to home with the tale of Typhoid Mary.  With this story that talks about workers rights, immigration, and disease it needs a trigger warning for anyone living through 2020.  However a cross over with the triangle shirtwaist factory fire that we did not expect.

We're having a rough week of it here and won't have the episode we recorded out until next week thanks to Reg getting special laser heat vision so she's going to be turning into Cyclops and Lynn is continuing her neverending recreation of the Winchester Mystery House on a much smaller but no less time and money sucking scale. But we will have an all new thrilling episode involving vengeance on the high seas for you out ...

Have you ever wondered what the true story of the man behind the legendary lover Casanova was? Was he a seductive charmer or a slimy scuzzball? (I bet you can guess since he's on this podcast.) Also, take a brief detour to a stately manor home in England for some afterlife antics with a randy 15th century ape. (None of that is a typo.)

It's another of our favorite obsessions, cults, mixed with one of our favorite cultures, Japan, for one of the most historically horrifying tales of murder, mayhem, manga and mass transport. Plus a bonus channelling of Freddie Mercury at the end and another fine tale of life under quarantine with Lynn's Appalachian Addams family.

Rev up your Skycycles and slip into your leather star spangled jumpsuits, daredevils, because it's time to go jump the Snake River Canyon with stunt riding legend Evel Knievel. Slightly less horrible, gory and weird than our usual fare, this one should still get your pulse racing and your bones crunching. Don't forget to put your helmet on before pressing play!

We hope you brought your appetite for this episode where we visit a charming little "health spa" called Starvation Heights. "Doctor" Linda Hazzard is here to starve, beat, lie, cheat, steal, murder and flush those toxins, and your life itself, right out of your body! If you like crazy medical quackery, imperiled wealthy English orphans, miscarriages of justice and so damn many oranges, this is the episode for you!

Don't panic, we don't have the Cove, but social distancing has made us need to step up our technology game and figure out a new way to meet and chat remotely, so our next proper episode is going to be a little late, but out in a few days and worth the wait, we promise!
