09 - Keep Your Filthy Paws Off Our Silky…Parachutes?

April 30, 2021

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.

08 - If These Graves Could Talk

April 16, 2021

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.)

06 - Witches Get Shit Done

March 19, 2021

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.

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.)

02 - Mom, Why Does She Look Like She’s Sleeping? Anatomical Venuses and Medical Curiosities

January 22, 2021

S02E02: Anatomical Venuses, waxwork models, Gunther von Hagens’ innovations in full body plastination, and the marriage of art and science: Let’s take a moment, shall we, to drop in on a dissectable, completely inexplicably orgasmic wax woman or two? Or maybe you’d prefer a mid-kick soccer player who’s just casually stepped out of his skin? Good news! You can totally see both, because, turns out, science and art play together quite nicely!

January 8, 2021

S02E01: Magic candles, dueling flower encyclopedias, and the creepiest gifts of all time: No human skin lampshades or tooth-bejeweled underthings were waiting under the tree for these podcast hosts! We both received delightfully witchy, but still relatively normal gifts this holiday season. (But, there’s always next year!)

December 18, 2020

S01E18: Victorian Christmas Candle Fires and Creepy Holiday Traditions: We don’t want to tell you how to live your lives, but maybe don’t mix candles with indoor evergreens. Or alcohol with...anything. Because, Victorian times, they were deeply flammable.
