Paranormal & True Crime Podcast ‘And That’s Why We Drink’ to Film Live in NOLA

The award-winning comedy podcast And That’s Why We Drink is recording live in New Orleans this fall.  Grab your tickets here.

Em Schulz and Christine Schiefer are just two friends who love to talk about ghost stories. The only catch is, they regularly have 1.5 million people listening in on their conversation. Their comedy podcast, “And That’s Why We Drink” is coming to New Orleans for a live episode taping at Civic Theatre on November 3.

Launched in February 2017, “And That’s Why We Drink” is an award-winning comedy podcast, where the paranormal and true-crime meet. Each new episode is a deep dive into the stories Em and Christine are currently obsessing over. Thanks to the duo’s comedic chemistry and the nation’s insatiable true-crime appetite, the podcast has over 124 million lifetime downloads and is consistently ranked in the top 20 on the comedy podcast charts. The show also won three  People’s Voice “Webby” Awards for Best Comedy Podcast.

Earlier this spring, Christine and Em launched a new spooky podcast in partnership with Parcast called “Rituals.” In this series, the two hosts summon weekly accounts of mystical objects, perverse events, and people who have an appetite for the occult. Later that same year, the daring duo also released their first book together. A Haunted Road Atlas–which debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list–is an interactive guide to the hosts’ favorite sinister sites throughout the United States. The book is jam-packed with illustrations, fun facts, and travel tips for the country’s most notorious crime scenes, hauntings, and supernatural sightings.

Em and Christine started touring the show in 2018. In January of this year, ATWWD set out on the “Here for the Boos! Tour,” across the US and Canada. Among theaters in Nashville, Atlanta, and Charleston, ATWWD is stopping at Civic Theatre in New Orleans’ Central Business District. Eavesdropping fans should expect lots of laughs and a bit of fright.
