Happy All Hallow’s Eve Eve!!! Today marks our last episode of October 2018, extolling eerie, spooky, Halloweeny greatness. We help you ring in a spectacular Halloween with this simply lovely episode discussing cemeteries from all over the world with our good friend Paul Wilborn from the “Having Beers With” podcast. We chat about our personal visits to the local Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana, Paul’s brush with Scottish ghosts (maybe…it could have happened) at Greyfriar’s Kirkyard in Edinburgh which is supposed to be so very haunted, and how both Paul and Kris visited St. Cuthbert’s Graveyard (also in Edinburgh). Just not at the same time. They even took the same damned Ghost Bus Tour. Again, two years apart. It is very highly recommended by both by the way.
Anyway, Paul also has an affinity for New Orleans (because family) cemeteries (because wicked cool) and knows way more than anyone else we know about the history of why people are buried the way they are in NOLA. Kris even pinpoints her “taphophile” beginnings from visiting a cemetery in Weaverville, CA, when she was a kid.
We also find out an ancestor of Kym’s actually started a cemetery for war veterans somewhere back east. That’s our Kym, always at the ready with a zinger story! We discuss some places we’d like to visit and wonder why more people don’t plan vacations around visiting cemeteries. C’mon. Why not? Kris ends the episode with some incredibly amazing (Oh…YES…INCREDIBLY AMAZING WE SAY!!!!…erm) facts about cemeteries. Ahem.

What’s this? A Mugly Truth episode on a Saturday? Of course. Because we forgot a few things in last Tuesday’s Disturbia episode, so we thought, well, let’s talk some more! Hence, this…teacupisode if you will…was born. There are some phobias we downright forgot we have, as well as a bunch of new hard-to-pronounce phobias from the long phobialist.com scroll of fear. Enjoy this short shot episode of Disturbia Redux!
Oh yeah. This is also the one with “singing”. You’ve been warned.

Welcome to Episode 01 of The Mugly Truth Podcast! This week we fuel up on coffee and technology. From the 70’s to present day, we reminisce about troubleshooting rogue cassettes, the right way to return a mixtape, disco, OG texting (aka passing notes), rabbit ear antennas, recording movies in the seventies, changing channels the old fashioned way, landlines and the real MTV. Jumping back to the future we cover all things social media (YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat (STREAKS!), moms using cellphones, teenagers, Netflix, viral videos (Chewbacca Lady! I Don’t Watch The News Because I’m A Kid Kid!), tech spies conspiracy theories, self-driving cars (NOPE), Uber Air (NOPE NOPE), the kind of people who jump in elevators, podcasting, and even the Chunnel makes a guest appearance (one ginormous NOPE from Kym, two non-sarcastic thumbs up from Kris) . It’s literally gonna make you go HmmmmCtrl+Alt+WTF?
Special thanks to Paul Wilborn who helped us test our equipment, and even had us on HIS podcast (see Episode 21 The Mugly Truth on his podcast page at http://www.havingbeerswith.com/ ). If you like beer, hockey, baseball, or The American Wake, check out Paul’s podcast Having Beers With!
So grab your coffee and get comfy in your chair. Put on your headphones; kick the kids out of the room; turn down the volume on your work computer or turn it up in your car – because the swear jar goes into overdrive (we made over $2 in our swear-funding for equipment upgrades).
Apparently we only cussed 5 times up to this point. #selffunding #mommawantsabehringer
Kym on the mic, ready to podcast!
Kris on the mic with her coffee in hand, ready to record.
