Episode 223: The Matrix Defense
6350
Blaming violence on movies is nothing new. From John Hinckley shooting Ronald Reagan and blaming the film Taxi Driver to scapegoating violent video games in the 1990s, attorneys have found creative ways to present defenses. Was this science fiction action film somehow more harmful than any movie before it? Or is the real answer something more sinister.

Resurrection Mary
4557

A stretch of road on Chicago’s south side has been home to this eager passenger for a century. She accepted rides from strangers but wasn’t always the most gracious guest. Screaming, jumping in and out of the car, and in some cases, ghosting those who offered to take her home. Is this a case of mistaken identity and late night hallucinations? Or do drivers headed down archer simply need to prepare for an extra rider?

The Baleroy Mansion - The Most Haunted Home in America
8090

Art, cars, crystals, and death chairs? This Philadelphia landmark was home to one of the city's greatest collectors - of antiques, priceless artifacts, and ghosts. When his family of Pennsylvania elites moved into the mansion on the hill, they had no way of knowing that some of the family members were moving in for eternity. Was this structure truly haunted or were spirits attached to the treasures within its walls?

The Liberty Island Treasure
7977

The beautiful green goddess that guards the shores of the Big Apple has been a symbol of freedom and a beloved icon since her debut. But the island she stands on wasn’t always fit for a pedestal. Legend has it, she’s hiding a treasure worth millions beneath her foundation, leading pirates, soldiers, treasure hunters, and even ghosts to crowd her shores.

Lorena Bobbit: Part 2 (Re-Release)
4700

CW: This episode contains discussions of domestic violence and sexual assault


In case you missed it, a new special titled Lorena: Escaping Bobbitt premiered this past week. The new special shows Lorena offering details about the abuse she suffered during her marriage as well as the ongoing harassment she faces from John to this day. In our episodes, we dive into her history, tell the story of that fateful night, and provide legal analysis of the trials.


After the media got ahold of the initial details of the case, the circus began. But the truth would come out via the testimony of dozens of witnesses at trial. One woman was both a defendant and a victim, and the trial focused on the reign of terror she had endured. But the verdict wasn't the end of her story.

The Disappearance of Kristin Smart: Part 3 (Re-Release)
5273

Since we covered Kristin's case, a month and a half-long preliminary hearing was held to determine whether the case against Paul and Ruben could proceed. The court heard testimony from more than two dozen witnesses, including law enforcement officials, former friends and acquaintances of both Paul and Kristin, cadaver dog handlers, and soil experts. In September 2021, the judge in the case ruled that there is sufficient evidence to move the case forward to trial. Currently, the trial is set to occur on April 25, 2022.


Years passed and the Smart family was no closer to finding answers to what happened to their daughter on May 25, 1996. Once civilians and private detectives stepped in, the family saw some progress. It wasn't until a new sheriff was elected that moves were made. What eventually brought the case close to an end was a breakout podcast that shed new light on the details and unearthed new clues, finally leading to some arrests in the case.

With their daughter missing, her devastated parents relied on law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation. To their dismay, the case was passed between departments and delayed long enough for key evidence to be lost. Despite sufficient evidence for officers to identify a suspect, they needed his cooperation to close the case. All the suspect was willing to do was plead the fifth. Decades would pass before they got any real answers.

Four students leaving a party. A dark street. A short walk back to campus. But for one college freshman, the person trusted to walk her home seems to be the reason she was never seen again. For decades, the case lingered, the investigation changed hands, and it wasn’t until a renewed media scrutiny that arrests were made. Did authorities have their suspect from day 1?

The Murder of Ellen Greenberg (Re-Release)
6906

Ellen's family got some bad news at the end of February when the Pennsylvania attorney general's office reviewed the case again and still supports suicide as her cause of death despite all the evidence. Her parents told CBS News they were disgusted and disappointed by the finding. The Greenbergs are still in the process of suing Philadelphia, trying to change Ellen’s manner of death from suicide to homicide or undetermined.

We've included a link to her family's petition at the top of our show notes. The petition also includes ways to get in touch with Attorney General Josh Shapiro and demand that his office re-open her case.

It would take an army to right some of the wrongs, but an innocent man remains in jail and a killer is still on the loose.

The North Pond Hermit - Christopher Thomas Knight

The past two years have made us all feel a little isolated. But this man took the concept of solitude to another level. 27 years in the woods alone, and he never once sought out human contact. He sought out other things, though, - books, food, clothes, tools, and anything else he could get his hands on. Was he an unrepentant criminal or just a guy trying to make it on his own?

A Conversation With Tybee Diskin From Chasing Immortality

We were so fortunate to sit down with Tybee Diskin from the excellent podcast Chasing Immortality! After we covered the wild world of Transhumanism, we wanted to get Tybee’s insights as she covered FM-2030 on her past season. We also talk about the ethics of transhumanism, how we’re closer to the singularity than we even realize, and Tybee’s hilarious run-in with Google voice assistant. Next season, Chasing Immortality will cover Ray Kurzweil, and we can’t wait to chat with Tybee again once that episode is released. Until then, check out Chasing Immortality wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to check out her in-depth episode on FM-2030, available now.


Thanks again to Tybee for joining us, and we hope you all enjoy our conversation!

Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” While this group of genius thinkers may not be able to stop the inevitability of taxes, they’re working together to eliminate that relentless foe who comes for us all - death. Will technology enable us to outrun our impending demise? And will it happen sooner rather than later?

Horror Movie Curses
4776

When you turn on a scary movie, you expect to be frightened by what you see on screen. But for these movies, what happened behind the scenes was also the stuff of nightmares. Is this the case of simple coincidence, with large casts and crews falling victim to unfortunate but common tragedies? Or, were these films cursed by their supernatural subject matter?

The Trial of Julius Jones
6096

In July 1999, Paul Howell was murdered in front of his sister and two young daughters during a carjacking. When police tracked the vehicle, it led them to a gang affiliate who pointed a finger at the shooter. After a trial tainted with racial bias, under-resourced defense attorneys, and a prosecutor hell-bent on securing an execution, the defendant was sentenced to death. But for decades he proclaimed his innocence and begged for his life. Did the jury convict the right man?

Skinwalker Ranch
7826

For centuries, this region was home to bright lights in the sky and treacherous monsters on the land and water. Soon, it became clear - nearly all of the out-of-this-world events centered around one family’s homestead. Once word spread, journalists, scientists, researchers, and billionaires descended on the place, hoping to capture hard evidence. Is what they found proof of visitors from another world or just the basis for a great story?

One man set out for Colorado, looking for the healing power of the mountains where built himself a grand empire. A half a century later, with the enormous structure crumbling, an author on a mission happened upon the place and introduced it to his readers as one of the most haunted hotels in the country. Were the ghosts always there, waiting to show themselves to a willing visitor, or is this another one of the legendary writer’s creative tales? This week's episode is The Stanley Hotel.

We were so fortunate to sit down with Ben and Ronnie from the Bravo-tastic podcast Watch What Crappens!

After we covered the crimes of Jen Shah, we wanted to get the insights of some Real Housewives experts - and nobody knows Bravo better than Ben & Ronnie.

We also talk about who our favorite housewives are, updates on the Housewife and the Hustler Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi, and all our hot takes on Jen Shah's alleged crimes.

You can also check us out on their feed in a bonus episode where we discuss Teddi Mellencamp's MLM scheme and the various lawsuits of PK and Dorit on the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills.

The Crimes of Jen Shah
5424

In Season 1, she introduced herself to us as being queen bee and MVP, but by Season 2 of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, the MVP was staring down a possible 30 years in the federal penitentiary. Though the only guilt she admits to is being "Shah-Mazing" the jury may hand down a much harsher conviction.

A Legal Explanation and Discussion on SB8
3345

This is a special bonus episode we're releasing at the request of our Patreon subscribers. We normally do "true crime headlines" as part of our weekly bonus content, but when we covered the new Texas abortion ban SB8, our Patreons asked if we could make it public so they could share.

Seeing as we live in Texas, we have received a lot of questions lately about SB8. In this segment, we discuss the legal and constitutional questions and violations pertaining to the ban. Of course, our own opinions are thrown in as well. If you're interested, please listen. If this isn't for you, that's ok, too. 

We hope this provides a quick overview for you on what the law means, its constitutionality, and where the law is headed going forward as it impacts all people seeking access to reproductive care. We recorded this a few weeks ago when the law first went into effect. Since then, there have been some news updates, movement in litigation challenging SB8, and clarifications in the analysis of the law including who it does and does not apply to. So as we say in the segment, be sure to keep up with the updates on this law as it impacts you and those you love. You can also visit the episode link for updates that have happened since we recorded.


All our love, from TX

Polybius
5729

At the height of the video game craze in the early 80s, this arcade machine was said to take from its players a lot more than quarters. Kids who spent time in front of its screen allegedly suffered headaches, nightmares, amnesia, or worse. Soon men in black suits whisked the cabinets away, leaving behind nothing but a legend. Was this a case of the government using mass media to control the minds of the youth, or can this story be rated M for myth?

Most bars serve up delicious spirits. But the type of spirit this one has on the menu is of the ghastly kind. An unscrupulous undertaker. A dastardly doctor. And decades' worth of restless souls. That presence you feel next to you at the bar may be from an overly friendly patron, or it could be someone chatting you up from the other side.

A harmless gift, a simple doll in a boy’s sailor suit. But for one man, this doll was more than a plaything, it was a companion, a lifelong friend, and a force in his life. Is this creation, made of fabric and wool, nothing more than a misunderstood toy? Or has he earned his reputation through decades of chaos and destruction?

CW: This episode contains discussions of weight loss methods and diet culture as well as brief mentions of child abuse. Listener discretion is advised.

It’s one thing to start your own church, but this fervent leader created an intense group that slowly took over its members’ lives - allegedly controlling who they married, how much they weighed, and even what psychiatric medication they were allowed to take. It looked like an empire that would continue to grow and last forever. Then a sudden tragedy changed it all. What’s next for this controversial group?

A self-described dumb blonde with a genuine heart for God, this registered dietician combined her love of the Lord with her professional training to craft her lightning rod hit weight loss program. But what started as a health venture morphed into a strict religious sect that concerned religious scholars and controlled its members’ everyday behaviors - sometimes with deadly consequences.

With her husband and his firm under investigation, and his so-called house of cards collapsing, the realest of housewives dropped an election day bombshell - she was filing for divorce.

CW: This episode includes extensive discussion on suicide and domestic violence

A vibrant young woman was found by her fiancé, stabbed to death inside their shared apartment. Police arrived, found she suffered twenty stab wounds to her front and back, and quickly determined her cause of death was… suicide? The Medical Examiner first disagreed and called it a homicide, but caved to pressure and changed his opinion to suicide. Now her parents have assembled a team of world-renowned forensic experts who all agree on one thing - their daughter was killed by someone else’s hand. Will a civil lawsuit help put them on a path to justice?

The Murder of Zona Heaster, the Greenbrier Ghost
4194

This week we were thrilled to be joined by Christine and Em of And That's Why We Drink to discuss a true crime that also involves the paranormal - something for both of them, and for everyone else! Be sure to also check out our appearance on their show that will come out next Sunday, June 20th, wherever you listen to your podcasts!

A young woman was unexpectedly found dead, and her mother suspected something more sinister - possibly her drifter husband - was to blame. When her daughter appeared to her as a ghastly figure, she confirmed the mother’s suspicions and all the details of the murder. Would the ghost’s story be enough to bring her killer to justice?

Years passed and the Smart family was no closer to finding answers for what happened to their daughter on May 25, 1996. Once civilians and private detectives stepped in, the family saw some progress. It wasn't until a new sheriff was elected that moves were made.

To their dismay, the case was passed between departments and delayed long enough for key evidence to be lost. Despite sufficient evidence for officers to identify a suspect, they needed his cooperation to close the case. All the suspect was willing to do was plead the fifth. Decades would pass before they got any real answers.

For 50 years, psychology textbooks used the tragic story of a murdered young woman to teach students about the devastating impact of inaction by neighbors. The magic number - 38 - was chosen by the media as the number of careless onlookers who heard the woman’s demise in real-time and did nothing. But the true story of what happened that night teaches us that even when there are bystanders, there are still plenty of helpers willing to come running when they’re called to aid a beloved friend.

The #FreeBritney Movement: Part 1 (Re-release)
4944

Hey everyone, we’re still out on maternity leave. This week we’re bringing you a double feature re-release of our coverage on the #FreeBritney movement. 

Britney is still under the conservatorship and the control of her dad. The New York Times released the documentary "Framing Britney Spears" which featured video footage spanning the many years of this restrictive arrangement.

This episode covers Britney's early years all the way through the actions that caused her dad to petition for a conservatorship.

Enjoy the episode! Thanks so much and keep it creepy

_Starting with her pigtailed debut, she rocketed to stardom as one of the biggest pop stars of all time. At first, all her dreams seemed to be coming true. But behind the scenes, things weren’t going so well for this icon. A divorce. A custody battle. Stints in the hospital for mental health reasons then finally, her rights were stripped away via an allegedly temporary legal mechanism. A decade later, the conservatorship remains. How could a pop legend end up with her every move controlled? _

The Dyatlov Pass Incident (Re-release)
4594

Hey everyone, we’re still out on maternity leave. (You like how I said “we”??) This week we’re bringing you a classic episode that’s been making the headlines recently. 

National Geographic has reported that scientists using animation software from the movie Frozen have determined what really happens to the hikers of the Dyatlov pass incident. 

Did they finally prove that the KGB stalked the hikers and took them out? Or did they find evidence of a yeti? Aliens? Olaf?

Not quite. They’re saying it was a simple explanation - the hikers perished in an avalanche. But listen on, because there is a mountain of evidence that points to a much more sinister explanation.

The late 1960s were a golden age of air travel - spacious legroom, glamorous flight attendants, delicious meals on every flight... and a rash of violent hijackings. Some were politically motivated, while others were fueled by greed. The most famous and mysterious hijacker of all took control of a 727 with nothing more than a black briefcase, a handwritten note, and a pair of sunglasses. He got his money, and his parachutes, then disappeared into the night, never to be heard from again. Did he die in the Washington wilderness? Or did he manage to make an escape with his bag of cash?

Was the mafia sending a message to Bobby Kennedy by killing his brother? With a laundry list of people that would have benefitted from Kennedy being out of the picture it's difficult to know who really was the mastermind behind the events of November 22, 1963.

Episode 23: The Kennedy Family Curse
4111

One of the most powerful families in American history has been beset by tragedy since they first set foot on American soil. Multiple plane crashes, two political assassinations, cancer, drug overdoses, suicide. Think of something horrible and it has almost certianly happened to the Kennedy's. Some blame an old Irish curse for their endured hardships while others believe a large family with high risk professions and a domineering father is the cause. Whatever the reason one thing is for certain - you do not want to be a Kennedy.

4099

The Smurl family claims that they were tormented by a demonic presence in their home for 13 years.

However many believe this was the product of untreated health conditions or just an elaborate hoax for fame and fortune. You be the judge.
