Tom and Caroline talk quirky Musk. Not the fragrance, but the actual Elon Musk.  Caroline attacks Amazon and Jeff Bezos even though she is a constant shopper (because human interaction is scary) Tom talks about Nirvana.

Phobia Collection: Phasmophobia
Humberto and Caroline take a wild ride through various ghost stories. Someone get's possessed. Caroline nearly has a panic attack. The technical difficulties are surely a sign of paranormal activity and not just a bad Internet connection. This episode is not altered in anyway besides cutting out long pauses and off record conversation. There are no sound effects added. It's up to you to decide what is real and what is PARANORMAL.  Thank you Humberto Moreno for co-hosting this episode. Thank you Tom DeRosa for being our researcher and social media marketer. Thanks TAO for letting us use your song for the intro. Thanks Pillowsnake for your musical contributions.

Thanks to Pillowsnake for his musical contributions to the show. Thanks to Rose Quaker for migrating down from Alaska. Thanks to Caroline Walker for letting herself and others be brave.
