**This episode contains graphic explanations of true crime. Listener discretion is advised** This week we do things a little differently and look into some vampire legends and true crime stories in NorCal.
This week, we look into the supposedly haunted Mission Santa Clara and its racist history. This is your reminder that San José is Ohlone land and the state of California/the US would not exist without the deliberate and intentional enslavement, displacement, and decimation of the Indigenous peoples that have lived on this land for centuries—and continue to do so today despite the threats to their existence.
Merry Christmas! This week, we discuss the mysterious monoliths, the Zodiac killer, the ghosts of the first state legislature, La Forêt Restaurant, and Bert Bertram's arm, and then play our listeners' stories! Stay safe everyone and please, wear a mask.
It's mental health awareness season—please be sure to take care of yourselves and each other! This week, we discuss both campuses of the Agnews Developmental Center and the history of mental health in California.

Happy Halloween! This week we cover San José’s #1 tourist destination: the Winchester Mystery House and present our “thesis,” Winchester Mystery House: Feminism, Capitalism, and Post-Civil War Spiritualism.
