Spoop Hour
It's officially the birthday season for your favorite Spoop hosts, so we're talking all things ZODIAC (except the killer). Get the deets on what it means to be a Libra sun sign Aquarius ascending like us, some of the history behind the western zodiac, and the folklore behind the animal-centric eastern zodiac. Also learn why Courtney's only birthday crisis was her love of Hozier and our birthday goal of loving ourselves as much as Lizzo wants us to.
I Like Big Pumpkins and I Cannot Lie
Spoop Hour

Spirit Photography Ruins Friendships
Spoop Hour
After an excursion to our local Halloween Selfie Museum (yes, that's a real thing), we discuss the spooky art of spirit photography! From the history of ghosts in pictures like Freddy Jackson and the Girl in the Fire to William Mumler and William Hope, probable frauds and spirit photographers, learn about some ghosts popping up in photos and get tips for capturing your own ghost on camera.   (AUDIO ALERT: We recorded the first part of the episode in my car on a cell phone, so the audio is less than stellar. If you may be bothered by it, please skip to 11:12 where our clean audio begins.)
Nerd Club for Nerds
Spoop Hour
Turns out Virginia is a weird commonwealth! We take a look at some of the stuff that makes our home state weird, like secret societies at state schools like UVA and one man's giant ham best friend. We also dive into a cultish temple located too close to home for our liking... (cw/tw: 40:33 to 44:55 child abuse; 47:54 to 49:42 sexual assault)
