Episode 26: Serial Killers

Well, we have been dancing around this topic for 25 episodes.  This week we are finally talking about serial killers.

Get ready to hear about some severely broken humans who killed for a variety of terrible reasons.  We have murderers fueled by lycanthrophy, plum cakes, prophetic dreams and REVENGE!

We hope you enjoy it!

Episode 23: Haunted Bars

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.

Episode 22: Holiday Special

Oh boy, that was certainly a holiday, wasn’t it?  The whole Peripheral team got SLAMMED by nightmarish Christmas and New Years obligations, but we are back!  This week we’re releasing our holiday episode.  Did we hold off on releasing it because it is really disturbing and we didn’t want to destroy your holiday with terror?  Kind of.

Well, almost certainly.

Out topics are almost exclusively about entire families being murdered.  Don’t worry, we handle it with the reverence and class that we here at Peripheral are known for.

We hope you enjoy this festive episode!

Episode 18: Hidden Horrors

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.

Episode 14: Hometown Homicides

From metropolis to podunk, everyone’s hometown is different, but they share common threads that connect us all. Every town has ghost stories, creepy townies and abandoned buildings.  And every town has a haunted lover’s lane, or a trail where kids went missing, or that lake where your cousin’s best friend’s older brother said that one boy drowned.

This week each member of the Peripheral Team talks about their different hometowns and the true stories of murder that weave them together.  We hope you enjoy it!

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 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!
