60 episodes?! Yes! And this one is a bit experimental. Cody and Garth take you on a real time journey over the local haunted road from their home area. The legendary Hicks Road! Listen to the completely offensive urban legend that surrounds this rural back road. A tale of cannibalism, devil worship, and recessive genetic conditions... Also, some cops happen.

Hwæt, and attend to the tale of the long evolution of trolls in folklore! We’ll tell a few troll stories, and take a brief look at the sometimes delightful, sometimes sickening exploits of internet trolls. Also we'll talk about a couple of times people trolled other people before trolling was a thing.    There’s that sign-post up ahead! It says, “Don’t feed the trolls.” It’s good advise, and we won’t even make you pay the Troll...

Guillotines in front of newspaper offices? Or will everyone just sort of shrug? Listen in to find out! Also, what is the deal with the ...

You thought it was dead! You thought it was a one-time thing! What an April fool you were! Once again, We're Crushing It baby! Sorry, not Sorry.

It's a Patron Pick! This time Cody and Garth discuss the bizarre phenomena of Cattle being mutilated by unseen forces for unknown reasons. Or is that really what is going on? And what does any of this have to do with economics and the politics of ranching in the US in the 1970's? Is it aliens? An evil government conspiracy? Or something more natural? Well, this IS Least Haunted, so you should already know.

This time Cody and Garth are joined by Nicole and Tessa of The Doom Generation Podcast to discuss a forgotten (to some) Australian movie. A movie from Cody's childhood that may just be the key to his skepticism! So grab your homemade scuba gear and spear guns, and ride your rail-bikes down to Devil's Knobb as we go diving in Donkegine Hole. It's FROG DREAMING!

Let's get ready to GGGRRUUUUMMMMMBLEEEE! It's inside baseball as we discuss: our decision to change our podcast host service, leaving spotify, and weighing in on the whole R*ogan thing. Nothing haunted/spooky in this one. 

It get's real political. So if that bothers you, you might want to skip this one.

Is it a time loop or just the tyranny of a giant rodent's domination of weather forecasting? By which we mean, that it must be Groundhog Day! This time we talk about the origin of this strange annual celebration, look back to Ancient Rome and the art of Augury, and learn about Animal Sport Predictions. It's a whole episode about psychic animals!
