We here at Peripheral decided we could all use a drink. There’s an uncontrolled trash fire sweeping across America, so now’s a good time to duck into a dank bar and hide out.
This week we chat about the the darkest, creepiest, most haunted bars we could find. These stories will contain bludgeonings, stabbings, bodies buried under floorboards, torture and suicides. Don’t worry though. Even with all those horrors, these bars are still safer than what’s going on outside right now.
Join us! Let’s get sauced and scared together.
“What you gonna do when your racism runs wild, BROTHER!?”
Guys, being alive is hard. If you have learned anything from this podcast it is that everything is trying to kill you. We are all doing our best despite that fact, but it is impossible to keep vigilant when you can’t even see all the terrors. The unfortunate folks in the stories we share this week were trying their best. You can’t inspect the earth below your house to see if is has a “devil’s lair” or not, you would never assume that a man can fit his body into a hole in your ceiling that is the size of a cigar box, and if a neighbor offers you a casserole you would never guess that the secret ingredient is long pig. We do our best, but even with the best of intentions you might end up eating dude stew.
We hope you enjoy this episode. It might inspire you to go bunker shopping.
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.
We have a packed show this week on Peripheral! The whole team is back and we are joined by seasoned co-host Erin and first timer Shelby! We have an unprecedented FIVE stories about haunted roads, so you should all be holding onto your butts for this joy ride. We have tales of haints so bad that you will never listen to Disturbed the same way again. Join us, but triple check your backseat first.
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!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everybody! After a week off due to birthdays and technical difficulties, Peripheral is BACK! This week we will give you the old Irish Tingle, vibrating your livers with spookiness. Mariah shares the true history of the banshee, Devin will make you nervous to stand on train platforms and Lindsey has conspiracy theories about body snatchers and mysterious dolls. Sláinte!
