As much as we are terrified of Poltergeists and have absolutely ZERO interest in discussing them, that's ALL we seem to talk about his week!
The upside is that by devoting our time and attention and our super wise and expansive scientific knowledge of all things supernatural (we did read 2 whole Wikipedia pages, thank you very much) we have come to the conclusion that while yes, these are TOTAL wretched asshole creatures, we did figure they've probably just been Fairies the whole time throughout history so now we can maybe be a lot less scared of them.
And maybe, just maybe Poltergeists are even just a wee bit funny, assuming you put their actions to some lighthearted background music. Except when they leave bits of human flesh wrapped up in tissue paper, inside the crofts they've just burned to the ground. Did we mention they are assholes?
PLEASE share your spooky tales with us! We want to hear them!

This whole episode came about because a listener, Rachel Wise, emailed us a super cool and real Poltergeist story that you can read in it's entirety HERE.
Thank you so much Rachel! We super appreciate your contribution to today's episode!
