Ring ring! Uh oh! You got a voicemail! It’s from a ghost! You’re gonna die in a few days, apparently. That sucks. But maybe the movie we watched this week, One Missed Call, can provide you with some instructions on how to navigate this sticky situation! Joined by host of City Girls Make Do Stephanie, we’ll get to the bottom of your haunted iPhone or whatever.In addition to brick phones, we also talked about deviantArt searches, cats not being on they celled phones, horse dives, ghostpunching, and a deep dive into Taylor Swift!RECOMMENDATIONS:Carly Rae Jepsen – DedicatedTaylor Swift – ReputationTegan…
This week on Fearbaiting, Schlocktober rolls on and Roy Fuckwarlock joins us to talk about the 2002 “film” Fear Dot Com (Dot Com)! Spoiler alert: it’s not very good.

SCHLOCKTOBER IS HERE AT LAST!!!!! And we’re kicking it off with Satah of the show, uh, Satah (@nuditea), as they bring us along to really confront our inner demons with Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, a sequel as ill conceived as its title construction is. Join us as we really take to task how much this supposed sequel seems to really, really, deeply hate its source material.RECOMMENDATIONS:A lil Amiibo to bring you joyTempeh!

As we grow nearer to the Hallowed day of Ween, the boundary between the spectral world and the human becomes weaker. As such, sometimes (g)hosts slip through unnoticed, which is why cofounder of the show Blair has returned a week early to talk to us about Sara’s all-time favorite film, Paprika!In addition to cicada revelations, we also discuss Almond Turds (skip to 5:15 to avoid the poop story!), Jurassic World 2 Adventure, Atsuko’s Phid, and just a ton of Film Analysis. Put your thinking brains on, y’all – Sara’s on her bullshit!RECOMMENDATIONS:Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl SenpaiNorman Fucking…
Andalites? Disguised as human? On my Earth? It’s more likely than you think. This week, we meet some other refugees from the Andalite army, and learn a very important if kinda hamfisted lesson about ableism from Animorphs book 40: The Other!CW: Ableism (We rarely attach content warnings to this show, but the wildly dehumanising way this book tackles ableism warrants one)In addition to this very special after-school episode, we discuss: The Deep Wonder Yeerks Lore, We All Have Shipping Disease, Summer Wars AU, Marco Would Do OK Online, Dirtbag Leftist Marco, Love Magic, and Matt Gamecube Will Never DieReferenced media:…
It’s time for a Cassie book, which means it’s time to settle down, open ourselves up to our more pacifist tendencies, and marvel at the Cronenberg-esque abomination that is an ant poorly attempting to morph into a human being. And also there’s a cape buffalo. He turns into a human too. It’s Animorphs book 39, The Hidden, and I’m sure Cassie’s fine!In addition to the general malaise that is these authors are trying to destroy this sweet little girl, we discuss: The Highs, The Lows, The Side-To-Sides, The Trash, The Boy, The Shorp Porps, and There Are So Many Ants
Blair returns to shout about the new Ari Aster film, Midsommar!
Crumph crumph: the sound of a book written in the 90s trying to deal with gender. It’s Animorphs book 38, The Arrival, which means it’s time to discuss our various mouth pleasures. Mine is just saying “crumph crumph”!Referenced media: Millennials Aren’t Growing Horns From Their Celled Phones, that statue of Oscar Wilde
No controllers on this podcast! Only human beings who love the human character Rachel. She is strong, she is real, and she is our friend. It’s Animorphs book 37, The Weakness, and we’re considerably more excited about Visser 3’s fantastically strong ex-boyfriend energy than any of the actual plot. Rachel’s the boss now and we’re the Supernatural of podcasts, I guess.In addition to other people named Rachel, we discuss: Hubris: The Book, Essay Filler, I Have To Live With Me ALL THE TIME, Houses Are The Slowest Thing That We make, Golf Ball Murder, Red Lights Georg, Oh! My Hubris,…
