TPIABI: The Backrooms

In this, our Bad Idea podiversary, Froo and Murph decide to do a redux of their first episode by looking at what’s new in internet horror. For this they have to learn how to noclip and acquire a taste for almond water as they delve into the turbulent fandom of The Backrooms. What began as just a series of disquieting pictures of liminal spaces morphed into something burdened by lore and children with no restraint.
