Introducing: Generation Why

In this preview, The Generation Why Podcast revisits the case of Holly Bobo. In 2011, 20-year-old Holly Bobo was about to leave her house to take an exam to complete her nursing degree when her neighbors heard a scream. Her brother looked outside and thought she was arguing with her boyfriend. After speaking with his mother, he learned that her boyfriend is out of town and that the man with her is a stranger. By the time Clint Bobo understood the danger she was in, it was too late. She and the strange man disappeared into the woods, and Holly Bobo would never be seen alive again. Generation Why hosts Justin and Aaron first discussed this case in 2016, and since then, Zach Adams was convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Holly.

MARILYN: Justice for Marilyn - Chapter Twelve
00:21:12

A round-up of the entire series and a look at what action has taken place in the 57 years since Marilyn Monroe's murder, including the 1982 “threshold investigation” and the multitude of books since. The subsequent lives and deaths of JFK, RFK, Giancana, Hoover, Greenson, Sinatra, and Lawford will also be examined for clues. Finally, we ask: is the mounting evidence and newly-released FBI files incentive for the LA County DA’s office to reinvestigate the death of Hollywood’s most tragic star?

MARILYN: The Case Against the Kennedys - Chapter Eleven
00:26:41

Increasingly concerned about Marilyn Monroe’s erratic behavior and the Kennedy secrets she knew, Bobby Kennedy was sent to LA to control the situation. Whether he turned up at Marilyn’s condo with the intention of killing her will never be known, but when she wouldn’t give up her Red Book, things turned violent. A sedative was administered by Dr. Greenson; it didn’t work. A pillow was placed over Marilyn's head, a shot given, and then a fatal injection directly into her heart. Peter Lawford was called to doctor the scene to look like suicide before the police were called, and the Kennedy cover-up operation swung into action.

MARILYN: Whodunit? The Suspects - Chapter Ten
00:25:29

In this episode, we examine the various conspiracy theories surrounding Marilyn Monroe's death, investigating each of the suspects one by one. Was it a mob hit ordered by Giancana in order to get at President John F. Kennedy? Was it J Edgar Hoover, desperate to get his hands on Marilyn's Red Book to gain power over the President? Was the CIA, panicked over Marilyn’s ties to Communists and all the information she knew, spurred into silencing her? Or could it even have been the Kennedy's themselves?

MARILYN: The Cover-Up - Chapter Nine
00:28:10

The official coroner’s report declared Marilyn Monroe’s death “probable suicide”, but that was just one element in an immense cover-up designed to protect her real killer. From the quick disposal of her organs post-mortem, to the conspiracy of silence of her housekeeper and others close to her, the questions keep coming. How was Marilyn's psychiatrist (and lover) Dr. Ralph Greenson involved? What did J. Edgar Hoover’s – and, separately, PI Fred Otash’s – wire taps capture? Why was that information suppressed? And, most crucially, what happened to Marilyn’s Little Red Book?

MARILYN: The Death of a Star - Chapter Eight
00:26:27

Exactly what happened on the night of August 4, 1962? This episode meticulously examines the official version of events – as well as the inconsistencies - that show Marilyn Monroe's death could not have been suicide. The lack of any pill or capsule in her stomach; the absence of vomit; the bruises omitted from the autopsy report; the glass window smashed from inside her room; the four hour gap between her housekeeper finding her body and the arrival of the police…

MARILYN: Countdown to Murder - Chapter Seven
00:24:09

The days leading up to Marilyn Monroe's death are crucial to understanding why she died. There was the humiliation at a party held by Frank Sinatra and mobster Sam Giancana, the increasing reliance on alcohol and prescription drugs, heightened surveillance by Hoover, and the growing panic from the Kennedys about the contents of her Little Red Book. The men in her life were suddenly invested in the idea of her death…

The glory years: during which Marilyn not only made a succession of smash hit movies, but also enjoyed relationships with a series of high profile men – including Sinatra and his rat pack buddy Peter Lawford.

MARILYN: A Star is Born - Chapter Three
00:24:18

In this chapter we examine how Marilyn finally escaped a life of poverty, abuse and abandonment she was born into – and how she wasn’t averse to using whatever weapons were in her formidable armory to help achieve her dream of making it big in Tinseltown. With spectacular effect.

From her early modeling career to getting a break in Hollywood, bleaching her hair blonde and changing her name – as Norma Jeane became Marilyn Monroe. The roles were small, until she utilized the “casting couch”, becoming the lover first of influential Fox exec Joseph Schenck and then Johnny Hyde, VP of William Morris.

MARILYN: A Fractured Childhood - Chapter Two
00:28:30

In this chapter we will examine how the woman born as Norma Jeane Mortensen was rejected by those closest to her and dreamed of escaping her life of foster homes, orphanages and repeated sexual abuse.As a woman, Marilyn Monroe was the most glamorous star the world had ever seen - but as a girl Norma Jeane had the most dysfunctional of childhoods and we discover the effect that tough upbringing had on Marilyn’s view of men... and how that was to resonate on all her later relationships – including with the first husband that history has mostly forgotten.

MARILYN: A Global Icon and Tragic Heroine - Chapter One
00:25:23

She is the greatest female star Hollywood ever produced and in most people’s minds, the 20th century’s definitive sex symbol but on August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe’s incredible light was suddenly, shockingly, snuffed out and 57 years later, the full facts of her death remain hidden.

Now learn the real story as we show how in the course of her brief time in the spotlight, Marilyn Monroe became a pawn at the center of a deadly power struggle between the President of the United States, his Attorney General brother, the highest levels of the Mafia, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, Frank Sinatra, and America’s hidden Communist threat.

The woman who had used her sexuality to hold sway over men her whole life was ultimately undone by her choice of lovers – and become little more than a puppet in their deadly schemes against one another.

Introducing The Killing of Marilyn Monroe
00:02:25

The Killing of Marilyn Monroe is an explosive new 12-part podcast from the creators of Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood. Marilyn Monroe’s name, beauty and legend is still as iconic today as the night she died 57 years ago. But unlike the legacy of her stardom, shadowy conspiracies and unanswered questions continue to linger over what happened in the hours, days and weeks before the blonde bombshell took her final breath, naked on her bed and surrounded by a deadly cocktail of prescription pills. The coroners verdict: “Probable suicide”. Yet many believe it was murder. This original 12-part series investigates the secret life Marilyn hid from the world, juggling affairs with Rat Pack crooners, President's men and mob bosses… and chronicling every encounter in her infamous “Red Diary”. Some say she knew too much, got in too deep, became a threat to the most powerful and dangerous men in America. For the first time, and in unprecedented detail, The Killing of Marilyn Monroe will uncover exactly what she knew – and what it cost her.
