S5E2 - Soft Jelly Bean Teeth – with Avalon's Brother

This week Avalon's hilarious brother takes a break from working on a top-tier animated program that will remain nameless-ish and joins them around the digital campfire for some spooky tales of Washingtonian ghosts and that haunted house that their family owns.

They discuss movies for way too long, teacher's pets who are also dead, and octopuses who have no right being up that high. They also talk about the ghost of chicken strips past, what mythical creature looks most like a twinkie, and Ghost Karens.

S5E1 - Don't Touch The Crane's Head - With Sara from Afternoonified

This week, the hilarious and amazing Sara from Afternoonified joins Avalon among the digital tombstones for spooky tales from America's most hand-shaped state, Michigan!

They discuss the fine line between misogyny & witchcraft, lighthouses, and matricide. They also discuss the crust that builds up on old sea captains, petards and those hoisted by them, as well as all the reasons not to invite a crane into your life.

This episode was recorded before Russia invaded Ukraine, otherwise we probably would have talked about that a fair bit. In lieu of that, here's a quick round up of a few ways to support if you are able:

S4E11 - Horse Paintings - with Zoë Proval

This week, we're haunted by the ever looming specter of technical difficulties! Listen, as a terrifying audio error makes it sound like Avalon is phasing in and out of this plane of existence.

They discuss the origin of Dr. Pepper, being traumatized by watching the Sixth Sense at a young age, and exactly how you paint a horse.

They also talk about scary things they've been watching lately, so get ready for like ten minutes of talk about Dr. Sleep. Again.

We're Back! To Talk About Frauds!

We're back! After an unannounced and unplanned hiatus / extended bout of existential dread, Emily Faye Coleman and Randall Lawrence rejoin Avalon around the cemetery to talk about Ed and Lorraine Warren, James Wan, and how they watched all of the movies in The Conjuring Extended Cinematic Universe!
