Bunny and Coco attended the local filmmakers show at Film Streams and talk to filmmaker Charles Fairbanks, who directed a documentary about Mexican wrestling. They also watch a production of The Bad Seed starring Stella Ehrhart, a third-grader who has made national news for dressing as a historical woman almost every single schoolday; she explains her fashion choices. The pair interview author David P. Murphy, who writes books about (and for!) zombies. And, finally, Bunny and Coco try to get to the bottom of the legend of a haunted staircase at Hummel Park.

"Omaha Party" is a weekly podcast by Max "Bunny" Sparber and Coco Mault, both with long backgrounds as journalists, playwrights, and performers. Each week they explore Omaha’s back alleys, urban legends, forgotten history, and unique expressions of culture.
