Best And That’s Why We Drink Episodes

As the show itself puts it: “The world is a scary place. And that’s why we drink!”

This amazing and extremely popular podcast delves into numerous creepy paranormal and true crime stories in a way that draws out the horror to create a podcast that is very chilling, but also incredibly funny, thanks to the talents of the two hosts Christine Schiefer and Em Schulz.

Best And That's Why We Drink Episodes

And it would not be very true to its name if Christine and Em didn’t also have a trusty carton of wine close to hand!

This show is perfect if you’re a fan of both horror and comedy podcasts, and you want something that can effortlessly blend such otherwise disparate genres.

To get started with it, you should listen to the following episodes, as they are truly the best of the best!

Episode 1 – Francis Ford “Cupola” And The Off-Brand Kool-Aid

I cannot possibly get away without mentioning the first episode of the series which still stands out as one of the best that the show has ever produced.

The episode provides the perfect introduction to the two hosts so that you can learn their unique comedic styles and really get a grasp on who they are, to help you to enjoy the series even more.

The first episode sees the two exploring the story of the infamous Winchester Mystery House that once belonged to Sarah Winchester, the widow of the firearms legend William Wirt Winchester.

However, this is not just any house, as many strongly believe the house to be haunted and to harbor a massive number of creepy ghouls and ghosts.

As well as that, Christine also tells the story of the most famous mass suicide that history has ever seen, which quickly sends chills not only through Em but likely through you too!

After listening to this amazing pilot episode, I can guarantee that you will want to go right into listening to the next!

Episode 245 – Napkin Hating Ghosts And An Immortal Pregnancy Portal

I know. That’s certainly one crazy episode title! And you best believe that the contents of the episode are even more weird and crazy than that!

There’s nothing quite as classically creepy and unsettling as a ghost story.

Humanity has been telling them for generations, and they still continue to this day, as evidenced by the immense stories explored in this episode by Christine and Em.

They talk about the case of the Ringcroft Poltergeist which was based in Scotland and was known for sending napkins, wigs, and chairs flying!

Truly classic ghost material, but the way that this story is told makes it all very fresh and intriguing.

As well as this, Christine covers the story of Moses Sithole, who was also known as the South African Strangler, a scary case that’s also quite deeply saddening.

I really recommend trying this episode out, especially if you are a fan of crazy and freaky stories!

Episode 149 – An Unidentified Naked Object And The Girl Who Cried Jude Law

The Loch Ness Monster is one of the world’s most famous urban legends that many people continue to search for clues about to this very day.

But not many know that he also has a Canadian cousin in the form of Ogopogo.

Ogopogo has become a powerful urban legend within Canada, and in this episode, both Em and Christine explore some of the most popular stories involving him.

Whether you’ve heard of the legend or not, this episode has a lot to offer.

As well as Ogopogo, Em, and Christine also talk about the story of two scrapbookers who inadvertently found themselves transformed into vicious murderers.

How such seemingly-innocent people could turn to murder makes this a very awesome episode that you will get an incredible amount out of.

Christine also talks about her wild obsession with actor Jude Law, as she attempts to convince Em that the two have met before. Listening to Christine desperately make her case out of embarrassment is incredibly funny.

Episode 252 – B-List Ghosts And French Diamond Thief Girlboss Energy

This episode sees Em examining the case of the Glenn Tavern Inn which found itself playing host to a fake ghost that proved remarkably convincing and frightened multiple people that paid a visit.

How the effect that created that ghost was pulled off is amazing in and of itself, and it even has Em and Christine completely gobsmacked.

After Em finishes that story, frequent collaborator Eva then takes to the mic to explore the story of the Comtesse de La Motte whose immense diamond necklace heist completely shook France and even led to the hugely important French Revolution.

The two also try putting on some French accents of their own, which leads to some very funny results that have them in stitches, and likely will have you in laughter-induced tears yourself!

Episode 216 – The Opposite Of A Meet Cute And A Half Sister In Space

This episode sees the girls discussing stories that actually end up taking us to space! One of them is the story of the abduction of Laura Clarke.

How the story connects to space is incredible, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise for you.

However, the story is equal parts mysterious, strange, and heartwarming, making it perfect for the show.

Christine also explores the story of the Cleveland Strangler Anthony Sowell, whose crimes are twisted and sordid.

Episode 172 – The Paranormal Cinematic Universe And A Cosmopolitan Globetrotter

The first documented ghost hunter, Harry Price, is the subject of this video, as the two explore their admiration for his work and the impact that his work has had on the paranormal community and those that love paranormal stories.

Christine also tells us the story of the murder of Jayna Murray, which is more commonly known as the Lululemon Murder, a case that is truly sad and heartbreaking, and incredibly twisted.

This makes it perfectly suited for the show, after all, that’s why we drink!
