California fires
As 16 active fires burn across California, hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee — including our guest, who took her family, her 2 dogs, and her 6 cats. 

Creepy doll museum
For its latest exhibit, a museum in Peterborough, Ontario has gathered a tiny nightmarish army that will haunt — and possibly hunt  — you forever: creepy dolls. 

Part Two

Part Three
