Murder and the paranormal finally meet! Grab your wine and milkshakes and join us every Sunday for some chilling ghost stories and downright terrifying true crime stories. The world's a scary place. And that's why we drink!
Christmas time is here and we're ghosts of the Victorian, dust-bowl children in the tintype photos mysteriously mailed to Christine! Put on a crackling fire (or crackling fireplace video) and settle in for some holiday surprises because we've got some doozies. First up, Eva gives Christine the gift of reading the first three stories that shed some very elucidating light on said stack of haphazard photos, including the mysterious and potentially haunted mailer herself. Then Em gets their turn at a gift in the form of a tell-all direct from a Duggars-adjacent listener. And then all hell breaks loose with the scary, festive stories - everything from lime green ghost priests reading their last rights to eerily realistic dreams of underworlds hidden in the floorboards and finally all the way to heartwarming doggie Secret Santas. Hasafwa Holidays to all and to all a Hasafwa Holidays! ...and that's why we drink! We're going back on tour! Don't miss us in Philly, DC and Baltimore to kick off our 2024 run of live shows in January - get your tickets at andthatswhywedrink.com/live

It's episode 354 and we're having the worst post-Halloween, Monday blues of the year (on a Wednesday)! But at least there's a ghost cat named Dennis in our future: This week Em is taking us to the Old Idaho Penitentiary, home of some lovely celebrations for Dennis the ghost cat and the animal rescues of Boise, despite the wild hauntings. Then Christine covers the mysterious and tragic disappearance of Kimberly Avila, a gender non-conforming icon who's accepting family our hearts could not break for more. And don't mind us, we're just here watching someone else watch paint dry... and that's why we drink!

And let us know if you have any guesses about Bartholomew Crispin... and that's why we drink!
