S3 Ep. 6: Bathtub Gin

• April 21st, 2019

This week, Janine takes us back to 1986 and one of the most terrible nuclear disasters in history, the Chernobyl meltdown of Reactor 4, and (along with a little history) tells of the ghosts who supposedly still reside in the exclusion zone. Katie takes to the attic in the house of Mrs. Walberga Oesterreich and reveals what secrets are hidden there. From Wisconsin to California and a murder most foul.

This episode contains some glowing sandwiches, stellar bathtub gin, a very Bert-like baby, and a hidden attic.

Warning: This episode contains mature content. Listener discretion is advised. From 24 minutes--24:32, Janine discusses the effects of radiation exposure. If you're not keen to hear about it, fast forward 30 secs or so. We understand. =)

S3 Ep. 5: Mildred, a murder mansion, and Mel

• March 25th, 2019

On this episode of Haunt Heads, Janine shares the tale of Ray Robinson, a man horribly disfigured in an electrical accident at the age of 9, the man without a face whose life would fuel an urban legend that persists to this day. Katie takes us on a tour of the Los Feliz Murder Mansion in Los Angeles, CA and regales us with the story behind the property and why it’s purportedly haunted.

This episode contains a very expensive storage mansion, a bloody ball peen hammer, a cray cray chain letter lady (we call her Mildred!), and Mel Gibson…because why not??

S3 Ep. 2: Any Dead’ll Do!

• January 27th, 2019

Haunt Heads returns for another creepy episode! This week, Janine takes us on a tour of the Paris Morgue of the 1800s and makes a connection to the modern day that might make your head spin when she talks about the “most kissed face in the world.” Katie tackles an unsolved murder in Elk Lake, WI, and introduces us to the spirit of 25-year-old Mary Schlais whose body was discovered in a snowy ditch near the shores of the Lake.

This episode contains a dollop of true crime and a murder most foul, shadow people, and a death mask from the 1800s put to use in the modern day.

Thanks to Fox and Branch for the use of their song St. James Infirmary for our intro/outro. Find more of their hot jams at foxandbranch.com.

S3 Ep. 1: Forked Up & Haunted

• January 15th, 2019

Welcome back for another creepy season of Haunt Heads!

This week, Katie’s hitting the thrift shops and bargain basements and talking about the objects we find at second hand stores and the energies they hold. Janine visits 17th century France and tells the (often disturbing) tale of Tarrare the glutton.

This episode contains some awesome podcast recommendations, a disappearing fork, transference of spiritual energy, and a massive gastrointestinal upset.

WARNING: This episode might be a little much for some of our listeners. Janine’s piece begins at roughly 59 minutes in. If you can’t handle the insanely creepy and grotesque (including cannibalism and a brief mention of infanticide) , we understand. You’ve been warned.

Our theme song is St. James Infirmary by Fox and Branch. Find more of their music at foxandbranch.com.

Many spooks abound! The happiest of Halloweens to all of our listeners and we will see you in the New Year! (Likely sometime in mid-January)

This episode contains divinations, shadowy corners, witchy workings, and All Hallows lore, and a mysteriously appearing raisin (of all things.)
