E288 A Podcast Done via Ouija Board and a Bewitched Cow

Hello! It's episode 288, tune in to see if the entire show is done via ouija board because Em's heart may have actually stopped this week. Post-ambulance, Em is bringing us the pre-Salem Witch Trials story of Mary Webster aka the witch of Hadley aka half-hanged Mary. Then Christine covers the brutal story of the Van Breda family. And extra credit points to anyone who knows why Em's last pre-heart-stopping thought was about Virginia Tech... and that's why we drink!
