Weird Things That Freak Us Out

Kneecaps? Tiny holes? Freeform jazz? We've all got something that gives us the heebie jeebies, even if no one else understands. We asked our listeners to send us their most oddly specific fears - here's what they said.

Whether it's fish, feet, or ramen, our listeners have got some very odd things that they just can't stand. We discuss the breadth and depth of their very weirdest fears, along with our own aversions to the darndest things.

Margaret and Amy discuss:

  • Margaret's fear of grass and jazz
  • Amy's rusty yoga poses
  • The scariest Muppets
