Episode 32: Jack the Ripper Halloween Special!

Get ready for our SECOND Halloween Special!  This year we are taking on the enduring legend of Jack the Ripper!

Each member of Peripheral researched a man we thought could have been Jack the Ripper and we each present our case.  Our number one fan (sorry Devin’s mom, we love you), and former podcast guest Andy, joins us to act as our judge.  He will listen to our arguments and make his ruling on which suspect he believes was Jack the Ripper.  Case closed.

If you have been following along on Twitter, you will notice that we are participating in Shocktober!  Shocktober is the act of watching a horror movie every day in October.  We are tweeting the movies we watch each day and we will record a Shocktober podcast at the end of the month.  We will discuss our favorite movies and a few of the shitty ones.  We hope you are participating in Shocktober too!  It’s the best way to really steep in the Halloween spirit.

We hope you enjoy this episode and have a GREAT HALLOWEEN!

Episode 28: Urban Legends

The best part of an urban legend is that it doesn’t matter how ridiculous it is, it still gets under your skin.  Does it make logical sense that saying a phrase three times into a mirror would conjure a ghost child?  Of course it doesn’t.  Will you wake up in a bathtub full of ice with your kidneys missing?  They wouldn’t leave you alive!  It there actually something under your bed?  Nope.  It’s moved behind you.

This episode we discuss the the dos and don’ts of self medication, the true dangers of indoor fans and we look at the birth of a modern urban legend about vampires.  We also have a public service announcement: please put away your Halloween decorations in a timely fashion.  So many of them are actual corpses.  Also, please put away your corpses.

Enjoy the episode!  But first, maybe check the  backseat of your car…

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!
