For this week's Halloween classic we welcome on for the very first time the amazing Will Menaker from Chapo Trap House! Will's movie mindset helps us understand the very deep references in this iconic episode full of monkey paws, Twilight Zone parodies, Frankenstein riffs, and some excellent animation. All that, plus we dig deep into a ton of deleted scenes in this week's haunting podcast, so limit yourself to just three pieces of candy and enjoy!

As Xmas meets Buddha in this week's ep, we welcome back the great Lindsay Katai, writer for Infinity Train and cohost of the podcast Teen Creeps! Together we learn about how the dangers of model rockets cause the local church to go corporate, leading to Lisa having a crisis of faith. And as Lisa becomes a Buddhist she meets a very famous actor with guest star Richard Gere. Somehow this all ends on Xmas, so go along with the podcast as we make apt metaphors. Apt!
