Hey Misfits! This episode you’ll hear a couple of interesting stories from Steve and Emmy: two twenty-somethings who went to the pediatrician long after it was socially acceptable. First, Steve kicks us off with a few spooky sea stories. Did a sea monster really attack German submarines off the coast of Ireland during WWI, or was it just an very very elderly dinosaur? Then, your favorite podcast duo speaks with a super special gues...

Hey Misfits! This special episode, Steve and Emmy dive into two of their favorite subjects: aliens and animals. Steve kicks off with a discussion of Wojtek, an actual real life bear who joined the Polish Army. Not only did this bear help out the troops, but he kicked back with the boys, drinkin brews and smokin cigs. Pretty chill. Then, Emmy carries us through part 2 of the world according to Ancient Aliens. And let me tell you, it...

Howdy Misfits! This week Steve gives you the run down on everything you need to know about Vampires. Yup, we googled “how to become a vampire” so you don’t have to during your next midlife crisis.

Then Steve talks about Ludwig the Blood Sucker, a Vampire from NYC who may in fact have just been a drunk little person who likes to...

In fact, she and Steve have both seen a Jackalope — coincidence? Next, Emmy does a deep dive into one of the monsters we learned about during our conversation w...

Hey Misfits, get ready, because this episode is a bit ~spooky~. Emmy had nightmares for about 3 nights after recording her segment on killer clowns. You may know about the most infamous clowns like John Wayne Gacy, but have you heard about the Killer Clowns from Outer Space? How about the college campus killer clowns, or the mysterious love triangle of a husband’s scorned clown lover? Afterward, you’ll hear Steve chat through some ...

Hey Misfits — Be careful, Steve and Emmy each had a BEER while recording, so this episode contains some hot takes. First, Steve tells us some crazy Cryptid stories — like the time Bigfoot threw a snake at a woman’s car (spoiler alert, that’s the whole story). Then, Emmy covers the legend of the Kraken, which Steve and Emmy discover is somewhere between the size of a football field and a school bus, but we’re not really sure. Then, ...

Welcome back misfits! This episode, while simultaneously recording a podcast and trying to figure out which one of her upstairs neighbors has been playing “smoke on the water” for 45 minutes on their bass guitar, Emmy discusses the age old question we know has been on all of your minds: is Elvis still alive? While some think the King died decades ago, super fans are still holding out hope that he was an extra in “Home Alone”. Not w...
