Episode 29: The SPOOKY EDINBURGH VAULTS
Join us on a spooky haunted tour of the Edinburgh Vaults, as Lucy FREAKS Karen out (and herself in the process actually!) recounting tales of murder, witchcraft, fires (Yes sorry Karen, there was a great fire in Edinburgh!) and more importantly a hell of a lot of ghostly activity! Karen is promising that next week will be all rainbows, unicorns and fairies again because we are FREAKED OUT!! But seeing as this is spooky season we had to do our bit in scaring you a little - did we say we were FREAKED OUT?!!!!
Here's the photo of "Mr. Boots".
And here's the SUPER SPOOKY video that Lucy makes Karen watch in the middle of the podcast episode!! aaaaaahhhhh!!!!

Well friends, we've hit a new low on the 1 Scot 1 Not Podcast! Definitely keep your little ones out of the room while you're watching/listening to this episode. In an unexpected twist we are covering everything from penis necklaces to sexual positions and NOT ON PURPOSE! WE promise!
Karen had no idea what she was going to uncover when researching for this week's episode but uncover she most certainly DID!
Pour yourself more than a little wee dram this week (we suggest a martini with mysterious particulate matter) - but really anything alcoholic will suffice!
And let's go back in time....to a simpler life filled with red thread, dread and a whole bunch of cows. Have cool, old time-y stories filled with ghosts and fairies?
The great article that Karen is reading from (by the adorably named website, "Wee White Hoose" is HERE.
Read more about the ancient Romans and Greeks using penis statues as protection against the Evil Eye HERE.

Because no, as hard we as try, we cannot make this stuff up!
And upon looking up the definition for "Stoup" as it relates to butter churning in Scotland, I was immediately confronted with this image and the many articles and websites about this particular sexual position!
I DID NOT KNOW THIS SEARCH WOULD TAKE ME HERE!
Sometimes the most fun comes from hanging out with us in person so you can feel as though you're apart of our zoom call!! Press play below!
We are having a green lady ghostie experience and Sean Campbell (Karen's husband) is NOT invited! This week both Karen and Lucy recount some stories of this strange faerie/ghost creature of Scotland. Find out why we think they may actually be poltergeists, why you wouldn't want to piss them off (dust in your food anyone?!) and whether Karen is team Edward or Jacob.
If you want to share some tales with us of...well anything really (not that we're desperate...but we're desperate!) email us at email@example.com!
