This week, the day all podcasters dread arrives, Melanie encounters a choad in the wild, we set a demon safeword, a bedroom disappears in an instant, we learn a lot of spooky sinkhole geography, wonder about grief rituals, and unpack religious rhetoric around death and randomness, and a wolf spider makes crude gestures.

Content warnings:

Joking references to demons/possessions/exorcisms, death of adult in natural disaster, child witnessing non-gory death of adult, discussion of disaster preparedness, discussion of family coping with body not able to be recovered, discussion of cultural grief/coping rituals, sinkholes, toxic positivity/Christianity culture, snakes, spiders
