131: The Vow & Mounds with Nikki Mayard

We’re joined by Lazor Wulf writer Nikki Mayard to wrap up The Vow with a nylon sash. Why did the editors save all the men’s rights stuff for the 8th episode? Did seeing Keith Raniere go full Frank TJ Mackey explain how people got so deep into this cult? Did he also maybe murder a bunch of women? Who is the best Vow character: Mark, Sarah, Catherine or Nippy? How privileged do you have to be to get into this kind of group? Will season 2 explain it all or just make everyone more frustrated? Then it’s another edition of Pyramid Pals with a great call and email about our fave buildings. What’s the deal with ancient mounds? What is the best corporate pyramid, and should we save corporate pyramids from the wrecking ball or let them be lost to time? All this and more on a new Night Call!

130: The Twelve Foot Tall Big Skeleton From Home Depot & Sad13

This week on Night Call we have Sadie Dupuis aka Sad13 as our guest! But first it's an update to Pyramid Pals with a call about a recently demolished but also fairly recentlybuilt glass walled pyramid for a pharmaceutical company. Why wouldn't Amazon want to operate out of this futuristic pyramid building out of a dystopian movie, too on the nose? Then we're joined by Sadie to discuss haunted portraits, haunted studios in Texas, andisolation tanks (probably also haunted). Notes: Richardsonian Romanesque Massachusetts pyramid pic MA pyramid demo video Miles Klee on 12' skeletons Ryan White Stew Leonard's animatronics Haunted Painting Sadie's haunted painting inspo Carradine doppelganger No music for ICE campaign Sonic Ranch Tornillo hauntings Sadie's website DOT HORSE Sadie's twitter Sadie's 'gram Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

129: Pyramids, Air Quality Index, & Q Age

Emily is back with tales from the Pyramids of Wyoming and Nevada: the railroad ghost town of the Ames Monument, and driving past the current ghost town of Las Vegas glimpsing the Luxor Pyramid after whispers that MGM plans to blow it up soon. Then it's all calls and emails, starting with another call about the New Age to Q Anon phenomenon (Q Age). After that a listener in Australia calls in to talk about climate change around the globe, and why AQI (Air Quality Index) sites are all over the place. A night email about a public art project involving payphones leads to a pleasant discovery about its purpose. We finish up with time travel paradoxes, real and created by people on drugs, to talk about Twelve Monkeys and what you'd warn people about if you travelled back to January 2020.

128: Altered States, Family Weddings, & Pandemic Speakeasies

Emily is on the road again, so it's just Tess and Molly this week taking calls calls calls, calls from the public! First we get a call from a listener debating whetheror not to go to a family wedding. We talk about the no-win situation that is Coronavirus weddings - what to do whenyour familywon't cancel, and why everyone shouldcancel big familyevents this fall and winter if possible even if they put money down. Then it's Spanky's, the secret Los Angeles afterhours speakeasy that went viral for sending out this email: “Somewhere in Los Angeles, we’ve curated a small intimate space where friends, lovers, bartenders and bootleggers, DJs, musicians, wanna-be celebrities, drug dealers and baristas, pimps, prostitutes and Johns can come together and reacquaint ourselves with the nightlife that we once loved and lost.” Would you go to a sketchy after hours listed at a location that turns up as a random houseless section of Mulholland Drive thrown by promoters who are known creeps? Then it's Altered States!!! Ken Russell's 1980 drug nightmare comes to life through our words. Now more than ever we need movies about sexy druggy academic types putting themselves in drug induced dream states to push it to the limit. Tess and Molly talk about whether we'd get in the isolation tank, with or without William Hurt, Bob Balaban, and Blair Brown, and why Total Recall raves and San Junipero type digital escapism are so appealing right now.

Turn On Tune In Tenet

Tom Cruise’s crazy trip to the movies to see Tenet prompts Night Call’s finest thoughts on Christopher Nolan’s latest movie that none of us have seen.
