Episode 10: (MARDI GRAS!) Delphine LaLaurie / Up Stairs Lounge Fire

SO MUCH HAPPENS WITH THIS EPISODE Y’ALL!!! This week Patrice & Marleah celebrate Mardi Gras by telling New Orleans stories of famous horrible people and events! Patrice tries unsuccessfully to pronounce the French names that surround the infamous, sadistic, serial killer Delphine LaLaurie while Marleah tells the story of the Upstairs Lounge arson, one of the worst mass murders of LGBTQ people in the US. You’ll also get a first-hand example of polite Southern silence brought about by delicious New Orleans hurricane cocktails.

Be sure to listen to the very end because we have our first ON AIR paranormal event!!!
