Last Writes with… Katie Webb (@Gorgon_Katie)

The premise of LAST WRITES is simple. Our guests face their final rest, but before Death claims them they are granted a few parting earthly pleasures, the memories of which will travel with them into the great unknown. What makes these questions appealing and insightful for me is that these are not necessarily our guests favorite things, but those they most want to experience one last time before they shuffle off this mortal coil.



I became aware of Katie Webb — Divinatrix, Witch, Investigator of the Strange and Unusual — via the wuwpod (What’s Up Weirdo? Podcast for the uninitiated) twitter community. Her monthly horror-themed horoscopes are to die for and I just absolutely adore the energy she brings. Delving into her history, I caught back episodes of Haunted ME where she was the resident Occultist for six seasons and acquainted myself with several interviews in which I learned even more about here magical approach to paranormal investigations. In that we were kindred spirits.

I don’t know how on earth she flew under my radar, but all that’s been rectified now.

Inviting her into the Occult Detective Mortuary was never a question and one of the first people I sought out when planning the new season. So, without further ado, let us welcome her into the impending darkness and prepare her for what is to come, but first, her Last Writes.


NGL, food doesn’t hold this ecstasy type power over me. I don’t think there’s anything I’d HAVE to have before I die. Im one of those types that eats purely to survive, not for fun. Buuuuut for the sake of the game, let’s say someone was FORCING me to choose something to eat before I die even after I told them I don’t want to die with a full stomach cuz, ew lol, and they say I have to choose or they’ll kill me in some boring way no one will even write about I would choose these fried green tomato tacos from El Corazon here in Portland, Maine. They’re dank. I’ll take the side of rice and beans with them, please and all the sauces.


This is tough because I don’t know what new books will be out when I’m dying! I don’t think I want to read a book I’ve read again before I die. Like, how long are they giving me to live here? Do I have time for Clive Barker’s Imajica or should I just blaze through Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins again (because that’s definitely an all time fav of mine)? Maybe I’ll choose Sirens of Titan by Vonnegut before I go and vibe out on whether life has any meaning or not.


Oh easy— Nohelani Cypriano’s Lihue because this song slaps so hard. No other reason honestly lol, ask me again in a month and I’ll have a different answer.


Well it would have to be a horror movie bc that genre gives me the most happiness. I would want it to have creative cinematography, some heavy synths on the soundtrack, and practical effects soooo I say Scott Spiegel’s Intruder (1989). Second place would be Argento’s Susperia (1977).


I meet people on the other side all the time . Buuuuut if I was going to choose someone to kick it with it would be Alice Coltrane. Because I imagine she’s draped in beautifully patterned dresses playing the harp, right? Shes the vibe. I hope Tim Maia is making new music too and I’d sneak in a visit with him as well. Maybe even ask him about the cult he was previously a part of because why not? Cults are fascinating.

I knew Katie was going to be a special guest and I cannot thank her enough for joining us here. Be sure to track Katie down and get a reading from her. She knows her stuff. Her linktree is HERE, so go get Gorgonized.

Please remember to tune in each Wednesday as we raise up another departed guest on our hypothetical funeral pyre so that they might express their Last Writes. Next week is going to be even more special. Not only is it my bloody birthday, but we see one of my favorite people shuffled off — What’s Up Weirdo’s Jessica Knapik. Be sure to tune in for the festivities.
