Post Mortem: Wait, so Mackenzie didn’t see the light house light and instead of reporting it, he waited 2 weeks? Afterwards, he didn’t mention this to anyone until the light house board questioned him? Kinda sus

For anyone who doesn’t know: Shane and Ryan have an excellent independent channel called Watcher, which I highly recommend checking out to help support them. Buzzfeed doesn’t let them promote it much due to business interests 👍

For post Mortem: this isn’t necessarily about this case but would you ever do a deeper dive into the case of Elisa Lam?

Okay, someone has to ask the obvious here: Ryan, Shane... When will you play Phasmophobia VR?

As a Scot myself, I can honestly say, their accents sucked.

But I loved their attempts.

It was art.

Post mortem: Shane is actually a Scottish native pretending to be American to disguise himself from being the ghost at the lighthouse #boogara

I know that they are not in the office, but every time the camera goes to Shane I get scared that the mannequin is gonna be there in the shadows.

Postmortem: This has nothing to do with the episode itself, but can Shane braid his hair in the next episode? Pretty please?

As a Scottish person, that was the worst but most hilarious Scottish accent I've heard

Do Americans really pronounce "buoy" as "booeey"? in the UK we just say like "boy". I kinda like your way actually.
