Bob has noticed an interesting trend in his early streams on his Twitch channel. A small surge of viewers from Ecuador and Chile! So, what better way to reward than doing an episode about a piece of spooky folklore from their neck of the woods. Meet the Pishtaco. Not to be confused with a fish taco, the pishtaco is a strange vampiric creature who lives off of, get this, human fat. These things drain the fat out of a person, and feeds on it. Then, even stranger, they sell this fat to the beauty care companies out of Europe. These are vampires who don’t have the stereotypical look to a classic blood sucker. They look like everyday folk, but with something just…off about them. What is interesting is that this is the MAJOR big bad of that neck of the woods. To this day, rural areas in the Ande mountain area still believe in the Pishtaco. Also, Count Panek and Bob talk about the life span of a ghost, and Mothman rootbeer!
