Season 5 Episode 7 - Black Eyed Kids

Season5Ep7Kids.jpg

If you hear a knocking upon your door in the midst of the night. Don't answer. Not because of the possibility of it being Black Eyed Kids coming to enact their insidious plans, but because it is just really inconsiderate of that person. We advocate a strict no-answering-the-door-past-8:00-PM policy.

 

But say it IS a paid of Black Eyed Kids (BEKs), don't let them in. These little rapscallions will beg and plead and tug on your heart strings, but always remember: don't let them in. 

 

In this episode, Angel speaks briefly about a beloved hobby involving hidden "treasures."

Season 5 Episode 3 - News Oddities

Season5Ep3.jpg

We had so much fun with our news wrap-up mini-season that we decided, hey, let’s not shoe-horn the news onto our proverbial feet any more, let's have some dedicated time to let those news shoes breathe. We can break them in, walk around and see how they fit. 

These proverbial news shoes will be of all different shapes, sizes, and styles. We may be trying on news shoes that detail paranormal phenomena, or news shoes that are about how people for some reason keep designing artificial intelligences that are going to inherently make our lives worse. Even news shoes about Angel's favorite thing: aliens.

This episode has news shoes related to being buried alive, blowing up the moon, psychic submarine shenanigans, and the wild lives of ghost hunters.
