This week the ladies delve back into the true crime drama and celebrate Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this is a Thanksgiving episode that may ruin your decadent meal... The ladies are jumping into the topic of cannibalism. This episode is not for the faint of heart... so maybe wait and listen after you've finished your family meal.
This week, the ladies continue their Halloween countdown with two of their favorite haunted house TV series.

In this week, Maranda and Nikki talk about their favorite films to watch for Halloween. Nikki delves into a Halloween staple that has followed her since childhood and Maranda opens the conversation about the nostalgia of Halloween and why the magic disappears as an adult. The ladies end the episode with a discussion of something that scared them recently.
This week the queens are down 1 cohost, but, Nikki and Maranda do compensate by talking about their favorite horror icon... the King himself. Because Stephen King recently turned 70, the ladies decide to celebrate by discussing their favorite short stories by him, the new "It" adaptation, and anything they can think of relating to the King.
This week the ladies tackle true crime once again but this episode hits close to home. The ladies discuss local murders occurring around their hometowns in the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois. Nikki and Rachel discuss two murders that received national attention, while Maranda delves into a lesser known, but just as gruesome, murder. Rachel shares her personal connection to the murder she chose and how it affected her family.
This week Maranda and Rachel begin a new series: Pick a Decade. In this episode, the ladies cover horror films from the 20's and 30's to outline the origins of the horror genre we see today. 3 films from each decade are discussed alongside the legacy they left behind.
We would like to remind listeners that the next episode will be available on the 11th of September. This is our last weekly episode and will now be moving back to bi-weekly.
In this week's episode, Nikki, Rachel, and Maranda discuss how the final girl trope has affected the horror genre. Rachel opens up with the episode with a discussion of Men, Women, and Chainsaws by Carol J. Clover and how the term "final girl" was coined. The ladies then discuss their favorite final girls, ranging from classics to the 2000s, and how they either fit or don't fit the final girl trope. The conversation bounces around a bit as the ladies examine the overall representation of women in film and how this affects reality.
We all know the rules, but why do the rules exist? This week it’s the Scream franchise, about which we all have very differing opinions. From Sidney’s first call to her last, we discuss the dynamics of this self-referential story in detail. Don’t you dare hang up.
