This week’s episode is the perfect marriage of romance and creepiness. The girls team up to talk to their guest (a romantic suspense writer) about some classic traditions that are still very popular today. Just beware of evil spirits!
Go ahead and take a heaping spoonful of episode 14–you just might live to be 96-years-old like the inventor of this week’s slimy subject. Learn all about him and so much more as the girls talk about the Pennsylvania origins of an amazing product that has at least 19 uses and is beloved by creepy burglars and mothers alike.

Side effects of episode 12 may include ineffective vasectomies, heavy leg-warmer use, and continuous thoughts of Arnold Schwarzenegger. This week, the girls team up to tell their catsuit-wearing guest an exciting tale that starts with naked men and ends with a revolutionary business model.
If you’re looking for something that prevents scurvy and fits perfectly on the helm of your ship, then look no further than Episode 11!

How do a founding father, hippopotamus ivory, the Battle of Waterloo, and singing like the birdies sing all fit together into the same story? Find out in episode eight as the girls talk to their very first guest about the origin story of something used by 40 million Americans.
In this week’s episode, Hannah reveals the development of a Harlem-born doctor’s impactful non-object, and Sarah illuminates the tale of a French clockmaker who became famous as a result of receiving the wrong package.
In episode six, a 5000-year-old body leads to a wealth of information about a classic form of art, and an “accidental” creation warms the hearts of Americans during the Great Depression.
