Better late than never, said the person who sucks at online analytics... The part-time job known as Christmas is over, and we've finally had time to edit the episodes we recorded before Christmas. First up, in our salute to Hanukah, we talk vaguely about some Jewish spirts and demons in between bursts of spouting off pointless facts like the big-he…
 
It's Thanksgiving here at The Booze + Spirits Podcast, and we celebrate it like most Americans--by being painfully unaware of the plight of Native Americans and having a big blow-out fight with family members. After a few tales of Native American lore, Nick goads Cait into storming out. Afterwards, Nick and Mel 'go for a walk with the cousins' and …
 
Put on your tam, grab your bagpipes, and wear your kilt commando style, because we're headed to the highlands for this episode of The Booze + Spirits Podcast! We're discussing the spirits of Scotland in this episode, 'Mel!' gives us a tour of a creepy castle and its green lady, Nick rants about government betrayal on a ghostly glen, and Cait finish…
 
t's our one-year anniversary! One year of Booze + Spirits, and despite all that experience, Mel shows up late, Cait pulls her conversation cues from Cards Against Humanity, and Nick talked into the cold mic while the hot mic was in another part of the room again (sorry for the potato quality). For this momentous event we decided on a episode touchi…
 
In a Hail Mary pass attempt at keeping our themes fresh at just-less-than-a-year into the podcast, we decided to talk about cursed films in this episode! Cait tells us about a movie that was so (rightfully) cursed that it never got finished, despite several attempts. Then Nick does it all for Damian by covering the bizarre circumstances behind-the-…
 
In this Chaotic Neutral episode, we go looking for alcohol spirits, and spend quite a bit of time in distilleries as a result. First, Nick goes on a brief tour of Scotch distilleries. Then Cait heads back stateside for a look at the ghosts haunting Buffalo Trace Distillery. Finally, "Mel!" returns to give us look at Japanese Shojo spirits without l…
 
New and improved, we've managed to squeeze 50% more hosts in this episode! Cait wanted to talk about boats this episode, so our good friend "Mel!" joins Nick to talk about haunted naval vessels, then Cait shares her much anticipated boat story (which we're pretty sure she's never heard before). Round the episode out with a sailor enticing dark rum …
 
All our episodes are rocky, but this one is on purpose! Nick and Cait have returned from their adventures in Yosemite, and while out and about they've gained a taste for the miner's life! Nick brings in tales of Native American legends dealing with cave-inhabiting stone giants, and Cait has tales of angry helldogs that protect ancient miners' claim…
 
It's the last gasp before Nick and Cait head out into the wilderness for vacation, so what better way to make themselves paranoid than with a collection of stories about people who mysteriously vanished in the woods? Nick and Cait give a surface look at the very deep Missing 411 phenomenon, as Cait shares the weirdest stories of missing people she …
 
The world's worst word-association podcast is back! The theme is "pirates", so of course Nick brings in a story about a mentally ill woman and Cait shows up with a story of a bogus Turkish sultan. Vague hand-waving connections are only one of our specialties, though, so Cait creates a fig liqueur based cocktail with a Mediterranean flair! Amanda La…
 
Show Notes We're back with a full episode! The topic is 'haunted schools', and we ruffled something's feathers with this one. Nick tells of the many hauntings of Alabama's University of Montevallo, and Cait breaks down one of El Paso's many haunted public schools. As if that wasn't enough haunted happenings, Nick and Cait experienced a handful of g…
 
It's new to you! Due to some health-related difficulties, we weren't able to record an episode in time to get released on schedule, so we've done the next best thing: dug a bunch of unused clips out of the garbage and hastily glued them together. It works for the last minute Science Fair project in every sitcom ever, so it can work for us! Enjoy ou…
 
With Independence Day around the corner, Nick & Cait decided to it was a good time to talk about ghosts of the Revolutionary War. First, Cait tells of the frozen hell the patriots stationed at Jockey Hollow had to endure (in some cases, for eternity). Then Nick shares stories of Fort Ticonderoga, its spectres, and the most unlikely partnership in t…
 
Finally, our poor noise-to-signal ratio finally works in our favor! We're talking about (and making) noise, and we start with a look at a bowling ghost that was exposed by the quiet of the pandemic. Next, an Indianapolis poltergeist that disturbed the whole neighborhood, and we finish with a phantom bugle whose tone reverberates throughout history.…
 
In this episode we spend a lot of time discussing hobos, ice cream, and decapitations, which is really unfortunate, because the episode's topic was supposed to be haunted roadside attractions. On a road trip absolutely plump full of detours, side-stops, and the occasional breakdown, Nick shares ghostly tales about America's first National Park, Yel…
 
The borders may still be closed, but Nick and Cait are taking a trip to Canada anyway. Victoria, BC is one of their favorite places, and with Victoria Day is just around the corner, it only seems right to tell stories of ghosts and murder in The Garden City. First, Cait tells us about some of the many permanent residents of the Empress Hotel, then …
 
It's almost Mother's Day, so we decided to bring in the woman who made it all happen, our own mother Shanna McDonald!

We share family paranormal encounters from three generations, including the haunted house in whi…
 
We've been talking for a while about pushing the idea of #baddecisionsclub as a brand or sub-brand, and a couple online conversations brought up the story of the time Nick snuck a dead cat into school. It was too long a story to tell in 280 character chunks, so now seemed like the right time to release #baddecisionsclub onto the world as a minisode…
 
What do Billy Ray Cyrus, Joan Rivers, and Britney Spears have in common? If you said a restraining order on us, you're not wrong, but, also, encounters with ghosts!

Nick captures some probably-not-EVP's, Cait e…

All this, plus smokey beverages…
 
Holiday tidings to you all! Once upon a time, it was traditional to gather family and friends together on Christmas Eve and share tales of ghosts and spirits to scare and delight each other, a tradition that sorely needs to make a come back in our opinion! So in this special episode, join Nick and Cait for a classic Victorian Christmas Eve, where w…
 
In this episode, we investigate the legend of The Red Ghost, a demonic beast that terrorized the American Southwest in the late 19th century. From there, things get tangential as we discuss camelcide, ghost miner role-call, and how to properly cook your wine. *Technical Note: Again, we had some serious audio problems on Nick's side during the recor…
 
Everyone knows at least one story about a Lover's Lane ghost, but let's call these specters what they really are: cockblockers. In this episode we investigate a trio of these incorporeal cockblockers--The Pitcher Man, The Bandage Man, and Skinned Tom. And in case you haven't been blocked enough, a salty, foamy whiskey drink is on deck to try to fin…
 
In this episode, we travel to the Atlantic coast off Connecticut to visit one of America's most unique buildings, the New London Ledge Lighthouse, and try a bright and bloody take on a whiskey Old Fashioned.
