A podcast about all things spiritual, spooky and some seriously funny spoofs with your hosts Amy Holt and Krista Hinz. While these two best friends have some beliefs on opposite ends of the spectrum regarding general humanity, from total skeptic to total hippie, Amy and Krista do agree on one thing: humans have got to get back to a place where we can have deep conversations even with [and especially with] those who do not share our exact viewpoints. These bewitches DO believe that it is time ...

We're going to take you back on this one -- to episode one, psychics and tarot history. Back in the day using psychics or "seers" to invade or retreat was a world war playbook for ancient rulers.

Even Krista knows that QAnon is clownin’ with their outlandish beliefs. Amy takes us through this cult’s wild history that may stem from shades of the Satanic Panic.

Hi Bewitches – Before Amy and I get to the episode, we want to take a moment to address the June 24th, 2022 Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe versus Wade.

What do an old evil hag, a demon, and aliens have in common? Besides all being utterly terrifying, it turns out they’re all associated with sleep paralysis or“parasomnia.” Hear it from Krista, sure there’s a science to explain this sleep disorder, but to anyone that has experienced it, it’s really the stuff of your worst waking nightmare. Read full…
 
Come down to Peru with us. That is if you'd like to be possessed like the South American children and teens Krista covers.

There is no question that the Ouija Board has a mysterious and somber backstory. The talking board was a by-product of the Spiritualism movement. This was a time when several families were experiencing the loss of their loved ones from the aftermath of the Civil War and they were desperate to find a way to communicate with them. Due to the pandemic…
 
Amy’s not the Sleepwalk Killer, but she sure has some funny sleepwalking and sleep-talking stories scaring the bejesus out of her sister and roommates back in the day. Her story, though, is far more of a nightmare in waking life as she covers Albert Tirelle, AKA The Sleepwalker Killer. Not only was this douche a serial scumbag who slept around on h…
 
Amy and Krista never read Word Up! Magazine, but it would be one badass dream if the Bewitches rode in limos with Salt-N-Pepa, the real bad B’s here. Snapping out of that cloud, Krista takes us through the science of dreams which have captivated humans for as long as we’ve been on this planet. So, why do we dream at all? Do our dreams actually mean…
 
Once upon a time, Krista’s Friday nights consisted of binging Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures and A&E’s Psychic Kids shows. While she is still not-so-lowkey into Zach Bagans, the Bewitches Psychic Detectives episode showed Krista that Chip Coffey of Psychic Kids didn’t help gifted children after all. What a letdown. He also happens to look and so…
 
Amy takes us back to some episode content from episode one including the ways psychics may or may not (according to Amy and the overall scientific community), see the future and communicate with the dead. Are psychics con artists or legit fortune tellers? Amy detects utter B.S., while Krista is still a believer she had become more skeptical thanks …
 
This is sure to be a wild one. From a British lady who cons lovers (Krista’s has renamed to Wu-Tang-Grown-Ass Honey-Boo Boo) to an a-hole abuelita, the Bewitches share two tales of women who hustled their way right into prison. Krista’s granny ain’t all that grand, but her scams led her to commit one of the grandest atrocities of all. Dorthea Puent…
 
Who knew all the true crime genre rage would morph into an obsessive interest in con artists? With seemingly endless hit streaming series, docuseries, and podcasts like Inventing Anna, The Tinder Swindler, Elizabeth Holmes on Trial, and Chameleon, it seems we’re all mesmerized by these hustlers and tricksters. But are we fascinated so much lately b…
 
Was Krista's grandpa, Paco, really a Freemason? Apparently her father has a ring from him that says he was, but guess we'll never know that secret for sure. This nearly 200-year organization has got some nefarious roots and even used to have the ability to make people "disappear." Amy then takes us to Ireland for the founding of the Molly McGuires.…
 
Video may have killed the radio star but when it comes to secret societies, modern tech and the age of instant information may have killed the global network of loyal members and leaders once part of these secret groups. From the freemasons and fraternities to some more nefarious organizations like the KKK and the Mafia, Amy clarifies one thing tha…
 
Who knew horoscopes had so much weight on world history? Turns out that astrology was the thing that kept Hitler, a Taurus, from dying by suicide. Not a great look for astrology, but as Krista said “it’s not astrology’s fault” that many world leaders are and were megalomaniacs – Amy’s got a list of other evil leaders around the world with ties to h…
 
Well, we know that soul mates don’t exist, but what if it’s written in the stars? Krista may not be looking to the skies to find her other half, but she does still love scouring horoscopes – especially for the dudes she’s dating. We told you Bewitched Banter’s really her dating app. Meanwhile, Amy thinks horoscopes are all just bull even though her…
 
During her time as a teacher, Amy’s seen some sh*t but she’s never seen or heard of other teachers, social workers or administrators using hypnosis as therapy for students. Krista takes you back to Florida for another whack “Florida Man'' story where a high school principal practiced hypnosis on nearly 70 students. Tragically, three of those studen…
 
Love Jordan Peele’s “Get Out?” The Bewitches do too. The good news, hypnosis and hypnotherapy doesn’t work exactly like that.

But if you are willing, Amy takes you through how hypnotism can be used to support the subject’s mental health, addictions, and even some hea…
 
As the single divorcee of the Bewitched Bunch, Krista wanted to cover the old dating app market. She takes you through the history of EHarmony, one of the very first online dating sites of its time to use a detailed survey to match for [same-sex] marriages. Spoiler alert: its founding father Neil Clark Warren, may or may not be a bit homophobic alt…
 
Happy almost Valentine's Day. Seeking your perfect soulmate or other half? Well you’ve come to the wrong place. Sorry singles. Turns out the soulmate narrative is one big ‘old Hollywood myth that actually has its roots way back in ancient Grecian times. Besides the romantic arcs and grandiose plots we’re all too familiar with in nearly every book, …
 
Can you imagine being buried alive? Unfortunately it was a real life nightmare for a Haitian man named Clairvius Narcisse. In this week's story time, he is the central thread of the bewitch's stories. Amy shares the terror that he went through after being zombified (heavily sedated) and waking up in a coffin to then becoming an enslaved person on a…
 
Remember the beginning of COVID times? If you do, we’re impressed. It feels like a millennia ago when grocery stores, gas stations, highways and airports resembled scenes right out of The Walking Dead or I Am Legend. What if the global pandemic was not a crown-shaped virus, but the zombification of humans instead? Don’t panic, the Center for Diseas…
 
Every week two best friends with totally opposite beliefs on general humanity come together to prove why one friend thinks people are generally good, and why the other friend believes people aren’t so great by nature. Amy and Krista take you through history on Tuesdays and into sometimes funny, but mostly dark stories on Thursdays. From true crime …
 
We go back to darkness in this week’s story time with two notorious American murderers. Both of these “unorganized” killers blamed the supernatural for their crimes and ended up on Death Row as each of their attorneys were unsuccessful in using the insanity defense. Amy covers self-proclaimed Satanist Sean Sellers, who’s certainly not a “good one.”…
 
Well if you learned anything in this episode, it is that Krista may have a legit problem: she’s true crime obsessed. While the Bewitches initially bonded over murder shows at the very beginning of their friendship, Amy took a long-break from consuming and reading any media or books on this dark and tragic topic. Krista confesses in her coverage of …
 
On Tuesday, Amy gave us all the dirty deets on the "Father of Modern Satanism," Anton LaVey. While he was busy founding his unconventional religion, he wasted no time on throwing his three-year-old daughter, Zeena, to the fire with her globally broadcasted Satanic Baptism in 1967. Zeena Schreck may have come from "The Black House" of the "Black Pop…
 
What in the devil is Satanism, anyway? Turns out, most sects of this very misunderstood religion actually don’t worship Satan or any form of the devil at all. Amy sets the record straight that Satanism is actually a religion very focused on turning within and doing what’s best for oneself. Both the Bewitches kinda wanna join. Amy then schools us on…
 
While McDonald’s isn’t self care, maybe Jersey Mikes is? Welp, it was for the Bewitches this week. Oops. We’ll get there. Amy goes back to Victorian times and shares how consumption’s (Tuberculosis -TB) symptoms of pale skin, rosy cheeks, and waif-like figures became some of the top female beauty standards of the time. She also STILL doesn’t watch …
 
Happy 2022, all! We hope you had a great New Year celebration. Krista takes us through the history of self-care, from its humble beginnings and some other radical roots to its resurgence after the 2016 elections and presently in the time of Covid-19. Amy hopes to grow in her career this year, while Krista is focused on intense self-care, which abso…
