Welcome to our big 50th listener stories episode! In honor of such a milestone, we're covering the hard hitting topics you've always yearned to know more about, like "does every dead guy have his name changed to Walt in the afterlife?" and "if you buy 12 cakes and your grandfather's ghost eats 9 of them, how many do you have left?". We also have a very special theme this time around: How ATWWD Cursed Me. We're chilled to our very core by all your creepy experiences related to the podcast. We also may have had a special guest write in... and that's why we drink! Please consider supporting the companies that support us! Don’t spend a minute of your holiday season at the Post Office this year.

Episode 201 is one linguine all the way to the top! Mostly because we discover that if we die under strange circumstances and there's not a ouija board session with us entered as witness testimony, we'll be pissed. This week Em covers the Fox Sisters, whose claim to fame is foot cracking and accidentally founding American Spiritualism. Then Christine takes us to Australia for the wildly mysterious death of Phoebe Handsjuk and a deep dive on the science of trash shoots. And maybe we're just a product of our times, but we're not sure we would recognize the specific sounds of coffin-making... and that's why we drink! Please consider supporting the companies that support us! Don’t wait.

200: The Burbank Fish-Flopper and a Homicidal Rhombus

Episode 200 is finally here!! Can you even imagine a world in which Christine doesn't know Em is a clown?! Or that Em would be surprised that a member of Christine's family set a bear loose in town? We're taking quite a few walks down memory lane today and we've got some fun, throwback announcements to go with it! We just released a kick ass, limited edition ATWWD comic book that brings our very first episode to life! We also released vintage merch that's lived with us in all our recording studios (and Em screen printed with their very own hands). Em also made us all a digital escape room so we can celebrate together from afar. And we've got some surprise guest appearances from Lemon (who is safe and sound and quarantining with Em) and the story of a newly blossoming, real life friendship with Farmer Bob. For our stories today we decided to keep with the throwback theme and revisit the topics from our first episode: The Winchester Mystery House and Jonestown! We had a blast giving these OG topics a fresh coat of paint with our current research methods. We even discovered some new details we missed the first time around, like the Winchester Mystery House is even more of a fire hazard than we previously thought and Jim Jones just might have been the only straight person in the entire world. Most importantly, thank you to everyone who has stuck with us on this wild ride. We can't thank you enough for helping us spiral this small idea of ours into the chaotic fever dream it's become. We couldn't do it without you! But perhaps most importantly, even after 200 episodes, you can still call us daddy and we'll sell you a monkey... and that's why we drink!Get your copy of our brand new, kick ass comic book and vintage merch here: atwwdmerch.comCheck out Em's digital escape room here!
