This Place Scares Us - A Podcast


And Welcome to: This Place Scares Us

We are a podcast that talks about all of the things that scare us.  Come to us to hear all of the strange, disturbing reasons why literature, movies, serial killers, and strange events make your skin crawl and your spine tingle.  Also, enjoy the strange forays into the unknown: Who and Why is Lee Iacoca(?), Billy Eichner fan-girling, repeatedly saying "Blessed Be", and oh so much more!

Thanks for checking us out!

Hello Dear listeners,

Welcome to a truly terrifying episode of This Place Scares Us!  This week we are discussing the horrible phenomenon that was "Strip Search Phone Scams".  Were you alive for the eras of phone cards, star 6-9, and calling collect?  If you weren't you get to learn lots, if you were then enjoy a trip into nostalgia. So come learn why picking up the phone may be a scary thing to do!

Also, we shout out some of our wonderful listeners! CommaSplice, Tori, and a wonderful reviewer on iTunes gave us lots of reasons to feel great!  Plus, Katya and Laramie struggle with words, idioms, and common phrases throughout!

We do joke around a bunch in this episode, but much like our Israel Keys episode, this phenomenon had lasting awful implications for the people involved. So please come join us as we talk about something sad, and finish it up with a recommendation. ALWAYS QUESTION AUTHORITY and TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS!!!
