Episode 13: Objects Out of Time

This week’s episode is on the topic of anachronisms, objects that seem to exist in a time period where they don’t belong.  We have a wide variety of curious objects ranging  from mechanical computers to alien discs.  It is a weird one, so put a hold on your butt and dive on in.

Episode 12: Grab Bag!

We’ve got ourselves a GRAB BAG this week!  These stories are about anything we choose.  The only ribbon tying these stories together is terror.  You won’t know what to expect or how to prepare yourself for these spooks and scares.  What you do know is that you will be gifted, from our generous mouths, four creepy stories.  We hope you enjoy this episode and its many unwanted conversations about wrestling.

Episode 11: Creepy Families

We here at Peripheral hope you all had a lovely Mother’s day.  Did you call your mom and tell her that you love her?  Did you buy her a card?  We hope you did, because family is important.  After hearing this week’s episode we hope to give you a few ideas for next year’s Mother’s Day card.  Next year you could write something more original like, “Thanks for not scarring my face to make me look like my dead sibling,” or “I appreciate everything you don’t do — like not making meth, getting into witchcraft and driving our family out into the woods, never to return.”

Get hyped for some family fun and enjoy!

Episode 10: Cursed Objects

In order to properly celebrate our tenth episode of Peripheral we have decided to make you take a second glance at every inanimate object you see (You’re welcome in advance!).  Are you a fan of vintage jewelry?  Does your heart sing at the thought of riding with the top down in a classic car?  Do you have a cherished family heirloom that you could never part with?  SECOND GLANCE, PEOPLE!  We have stories this week that will make you throw that garbage ring out a window, drive that jalopy into a goddamn bridge abutment and tell your great-great grandma’s ghost to suck it as you bury her beloved vase in the backyard.  You will also be too scared to ever go camping again.

JOIN US!  We want to scare you smart.

Episode 7: Murder Castles

On this week’s episode of Peripheral, we are missing a co host and in their place we have a very special guest!  Please welcome Andy, our unofficial fifth member and our very official Billionaire Baby, who fills in for Devin this week.  Our topic this week is murder castles, which we feel also extends to any shelter on land or sea.  The Peripheral team covers a breadth of terrifying topics: suitors with bushy mustaches and evil intentions, murderous introverts, the deafening silence of cruise ship nap time and being a poor Chinese citizen with a common blood type.   Enjoy!

Episode 4: Washington Stories

Washington State is filled with stories of the paranormal.  The big stories usually cover Sasquatch and Kurt Cobain’s ghost, but the Peripheral team wanted to share some of the lesser known stories from our beloved Evergreen State.  In this locally focused episode, we have tales of unidentified flying objects, a “doctor” serial killer and even spontaneous combustion.
