NOT about a haunted house.

Claire guesses the mystery and ruins everything.

Stupid old man creepazoid ruins a girls life. And by girl I do mean 'Alexandra who read this book.' Also Vanessa. LEAVE VANESSA ALONE.

Claire makes the joke of the episode. Cackling ensues.

A darkly hilarious memoir from a Melbourne sex worker. Could YOU poo on someone for money?

...kind of. Alex ruins Claire's Punkd joke and they shit talk Ashton Kutcher.

TW: we discuss sexual assault, Lolita and other creepy, non consentual fictional relationships and the holocaust.

Roxane Gay is mentioned so many times throughout this podcast, we should probably pay her.
