S03E10: The Brattleboro Retreat Tower, a Victorian structure tucked away amongst the trees and boulders on a hiking trail in Vermont.
Haley goes solo this week with a tour of one of her new hometown's most notorious haunts, the Brattleboro Retreat tower. Note: The Brattleboro Retreat was formerly known as the Vermont Asylum for the Insane, and some historical references use that name.

S03E06: The stories behind the names for full moons and how the moon does (or doesn’t) impact the human body.
Did you know that a blue moon is actually a thing, and that blood moons really do exist? Connect with your inner (North American) moon witch and prepare to be both baffled and delighted by the names we’ve decided to call each month’s full moon. Then, switch to your front-facing camera and examine the science and the spooky behind the effects that the moon might have on your–and everyone else’s–body.

S03E05: Abandoned Waterparks and Neverland Ranch.
The heyday of bad-idea waterparks, when the kids were probably drunk and their 1980s parents decided to just roll the dice on safety, and the dark and over-the-top remnants of Neverland Ranch. (Content warning: We primarily focus on the actual structures and items inside, but do acknowledge the abuse. If that’s something you’d prefer to avoid, skip ahead to Haley’s story.)

Hello, creepy crafters!
There won't be a new episode this week, because Natali came down with the covid. We decided that excitedly telling each other stories until midnight was probably not the most reasonable road to recovery, so we'll be back as soon as she's feeling up to it! (Probably next week!)
Do I need to remind you not to run with scissors? And wear a mask, too.

S03E04: The Not Terribly Good Club of Great Britain and a fascinating look into the history of fraternities and sororities in the United States.
Private clubs can be fraught with countless problematic behaviors, but our favorite find turned out to be charming, weird, and so successful that it ceased to exist. Meanwhile, back in the US, we learned that the story of the rise of fraternities is as old as the country itself.

S03E02: The history of the valentine and the hypnotic love spell murderer, Dr. Carl Coppolino.
From penning sweet nothings to vinegar valentines, Natali explains why the history of these cards is far more creative–and more grown up–than today’s grade school-geared counterparts. Then, like a rain cloud over your lovenest, Haley ruins everything with a story of hypnosis, heartbreak (in the literal and figurative sense), two states, two mistresses, and probably two murders.
