Americans will spend over $9B on Halloween this year – and about a third of that will be on costumes! This week, we talk about the good, the bad and the INSANE costumes that we’ve found online. We also revisit some of our favorite costumes of the past and we discover that glitter pumpkin butts are a thing.
It’s that time of year again to stock up on goodies to hand out to dressed up kids all over your neighborhood. But why are these candies so weird now?! Join us as we taste some Halloween candy, discuss our favorites from childhood and talk through the weird flavors and names of today’s treats.
This week was
disgusting fun because we got to watch each other react to some truly horrible unique Halloween candy. While we found some that we liked, I think we’ll be sticking with our usual favorites this season.
Check out our Instagram for some fun clips of us taste-testing some of the candy from this week’s episode.

In this surprise episode for Halloween we share your submitted scary stories and some of our own! A Hollywood radio personality possibly haunts our old apartment, Mike gets taken to a Curandera to return his soul, and a tales of a ghosts in bars and castles.
Continuing our Halloween fun, we talk about urban legends from the cities where we’ve lived! Hollywood starlets roaming through rooms, murdered teens on remote roads and… flying monkeys?! Listen to hear about some creepy and fun legends (some with surprisingly interesting histories!).
What is Dia de los Muertos? We talk about we learned from the history and origin to some of the stories and traditions of this long-time Mexican celebration of life and death (and life after death). Also, its influence in art and increasing popularity in today’s culture.
We discuss Halloween history and traditions. Where did Halloween and jack-o-lanterns come from? Family costumes and Halloween memories from growing up. And, of course, our favorite scary movies.
We don’t know where to take our friends in LA even though we lived there for years. Also: Bob’s Big Boy, Knott’s Scary Farm, Elvira, Gay Days at Disneyland.
