Amazing podcast. I swear this is exactly what I needed in my life. I love Stephanie from vlogs to mukbangs and now to podcasts. I usually listen to these when I'm painting such a great way to focus while learning something new. Her voice is so calming it boosts my creativity.💕

Goodness, stick with food YouTube videos. This podcast is terrible.


Rotten but still a little sweet! Rotten Mango is a true crime + all things spooky podcast. We love doing deep dives into the darkest crimes and we tend to not leave out any details - which can get a little rotten at times. If you want deep dives in the psychology of killers, no holding back storytelling of crimes, and stories of lesser known criminals from around the world this is the place for you. Welcome to Rotten Mango but don’t worry it all comes with a seasoning of comedy/sweetness.

Episode Date
#83: The Tooth Fairy Serial Killer (Case of Snowtown Murders)
You walk into an empty abandoned bank. You walk straight for the vault. 

Sure, you know there won’t be anything of value left but you can’t help but try. In there you see a strange sight. 

6 giant barrels lined up against the wall. Maybe they’re filled with money?

Or maybe it contains the tortured, dismembered, and cannibalized remains of 8 people. Well, go on - open it.

#82: The Ballroom Murders (Case of John List)
Wanda was reading a tabloid of “The Perfect Crime.” She couldn’t believe it - how does a family man just viciously murder his entire family in their 19 bedroom mansion?

And the worst part is he got away with it and has been on the run for 18 years.

At that moment she looked up and saw the killer. Staring back at her. Only it wasn’t John List. It was her new neighbor… or was it?

#81: Friday The 13th Axe Killer (Case of Candy Montgomery)
The investigators arrived at the scene - it was Friday the 13th and the victim had been brutally killed with an axe. The victim suffered over 40 stabs with a 3ft long axe and half of her face was missing. 

Was it a gang? A serial killer? It definitely wasn’t the cute little housewife that makes taco salad, takes painting classes, and was headed for church that day - because that would be crazy.

#80: The 10 Year Old Killers (Case of James Bulger)
When 2-year-old James goes missing at the mall his mom is quick to start her frantic search. Within seconds he had disappeared into the crowd. 

When the police arrive and show her the CCTV footage everyone is relieved. James had been lured out of the mall by two 10-year-old boys. Thank god it’s not some creepy old man. 

Nobody had any clue that these 10-year-olds were planning a murder.

#79: The FaceBook Killers (Case of The Potter Family)
What would you do if someone unfriended you on Facebook?

You probably wouldn’t even notice. Maybe you confront them. Or maybe you sneak into their house and brutally murder them and their significant other… 

How dare they unfriend you on Facebook? This case is filled with twists, delusions, social media drama, and so much cat-fishing that you start to believe there’s no way this is real. 

But you know what they say - social media can be deadly

#78: Isolated For 27 Years (Case of Christopher Knight)
In 27 years he only spoke one word. “Hi.”

For decades he lived without a mirror - he had forgotten what he had looked like. 

He had no friends, no family, no pets, no emotional attachments - those were all cut off the day he disappeared. 

When he is finally arrested after 27 years - the questions remain. Why did a 20-year-old walk into the woods and decide to disappear? Was he running from something? Does he know something we don’t? And what happens to someone who has no social contact for 27 years?

#77: A High Schooler, A Stripper & A Suspicious Mom (Case of Franklin Floyd)
Sharon - the high school student with straight A’s. She seemed perfect - but why does a 14-year-old have a closet full of lingerie and provocative clothes?

Tonya - the mom who took a job as a dancer at a club. She was found dead on the side of the road. But why is her husband acting so strange?

Sandra - the mom whose baby was kidnapped. But why are there rumors that Sandra sold her child?

And how do these three individual stories collide into one big devious mess?

#76: The Baskin Robbins Killer (Unsolved Case of Amy Mihaljevic)
The rookie police officer was sent to the local middle school to give a lecture on how to be safe. Stranger Danger! But this town had nothing to worry about - it was a safe small town.

The officer left happy with his work - he had no idea that one of the very kids sitting in his lecture would be kidnapped and murdered right after school.

This case was unsolved in the FBI files for over 30 years… but would a woman’s phone call in 2020 finally catch the child killer?

#75: The Mean Girls Killers (Case of Shanda Sharer)
The 4 teenage girls decided they wanted McDonald's for breakfast after their all-nighter. They carefully reverse parked into the lot so that all the bloody handprints on the back of their trunk would be hidden.

They ordered a full breakfast - and one of the girls lifted up the sausage patty and giggled “doesn’t this look like Shanda?”

The 12-year-old girl that they kidnapped? The one they tortured in unspeakable ways for the past 8 hours? The one that they just burned alive?

#74: The Party Monster Murder (Case of Michael Alig)
The hottest clubs in New York City were run by Michael. He knew how to throw a party - serving cat food as appetizers, performances of women pulling Christmas lights out of - well, you know where. 

A rotating wheel of 6 cow tongues for anyone to “rub” up against. This was the place to be. 

But when rumors started circling that Michael had injected one of his friends with Drano and dismembered him in his bathtub… nobody believed it. Or maybe they didn’t want to? Because the party must go on. 

Source: "Party Monster" by James St. James - wow... this book is a first-hand account of the whole scene, the environment, but also the crime. Really fantastic read that goes far more in-depth!

#73: Hotel Of Horrors (Serial Killer - H. H. Holmes)
You’ve booked a room in a nice hotel that everyone calls “The Castle.” You quickly realize things are not what it seems here. 

Doors with spikes attached. Vaults filled with acid. Secret peepholes in the rooms. Staircases that start and stop out of nowhere. 

You see the “elasticity machine” it’s supposed to stretch your body so you can be taller. The owner wants to create a new race of giants… 

Everything feels so strange. Why the weird maze like layout? And who is H. H. Holmes?

#72: The Body In The FBI Agent’s Trunk (Case of Mark Putnam & Susan Smith)
The hardworking FBI agent was on his way to a meeting when he noticed the large crack on the passenger window of his car. How is he going to explain that?

He had a lie for the large wound on his hand. What about the deep scratches all over his neck? Surely he could come up with something. 

Now the only thing left to take care of - was the decomposing body in his trunk. 

Nothing an FBI agent can’t handle.

#71: Cannibal Mountain (Case - Uruguayan Rugby Team)
“What’s the last thing you ate?” the doctor asked. 

All 16 of them responded the same - “human flesh.”

A plane of 45 passengers had crashed into the side of a snow covered mountain in the Andes. Yes, it’s freezing, they were only wearing t-shirts, and many were wounded if not dead - but, they will be rescued soon. 

That was what they put their faith in. But they were wrong. They wouldn’t be rescued for another 72 days and only 16 would get out alive.

#70: The Snuff Film Killers (Serial Killers Leonard Lake & Charles Ng)
Most people collect ordinary things - paintings, books, baseball cards. But what if you could collect your darkest desires? Two men decide they will collect women to be held captive in their torture bunker. 

The men started gathering all their weapons of torture - power drills, clamps, gags, and pliers… the last thing they needed was a video camera. Because they were going to film it all. 

The snuff film director, the collector, and the serial killer.

#69: The Walgreens Killers (Case of Patricia Columbo & Frank Deluca)
When you step into this Walgreens it feels like any other - aisles filled with cosmetics, household goods, and a pharmacy. The employees are kind but they’re harboring their own dark secrets. 

The woman in cosmetics had inappropriate relations with a German Shepherd and her ex boyfriend refuses to get rid of the incriminating pictures.

The store manager has a deadly liking for underage girls. 

Another employee is plotting the murder of 3 people. 

But is this really more sinister than your local Walgreens?

#68: The Girl Who Died Twice (Case of Becky Brown & Amy Burridge)
She died twice on that 12 story bridge. 

The first time - she was thrown off the bridge by two men in hopes of killing her. This would be the only way their night of sick torture would stay secret. 

The second time - 19 years later. The same bridge. The same spot. The same 120 feet fall. 

Are the events connected? How does someone die twice?

A man with a briefcase entered the cockpit of Western Flight 701. The man tells the pilots there are 2 bombs on the plane and a grenade in his suitcase. 

For 20 hours - a couple terrorized the entire flight in hopes of having their demands met. They wanted $3 million dollars in cash, 5 parachutes, a woman on trial for murder to be handed over to them, and a flight to Vietnam. 

And for decades they got away with it - because the sky is the limit.

#66: Burned Alive - 7 Hours of Torture (Cheshire Home Invasion Murders)
A family of 4 is startled awake by two masked men - they tell them that everything is going to be okay. We just want money - that’s all. 

Slowly for the next 7 hours - it becomes clear that’s not all they want. The 11yr old daughter was assaulted. The mother was assaulted and strangled. The house engulfed in flames - all while the police were standing outside. 

“A thief in the night. I’ve come to steal NOT your jewels and money. But your personal safety, privacy, and security. I violate your inner asylum of intimacy.” - Cheshire Home Invader / Killer.

#65: The Sisterhood Of Torture (Case of Michelle Knotek)
They knew something was different about their family. The sisters saw it. They had guests doing chores - completely nude - in the house. Guests being duct-taped to the walls.

They had a man jumping from their roof onto his bare feet over and over again. Until his legs broke. 

Even all this pain - was nothing compared to the humiliation and psychological torture taking place… what was really going on here? Who would finally tell?

#63: Yosemite National Park Serial Killer (Case - Steven & Cary Stayner)
Why do so many people go missing in National Parks? Alien conspiracy theory? Government experiments? Or just lost in nature? 

In this case - it’s none of the above. It’s a serial killer that leaves a trail of bloodshed and a decapitated head bobbing in a stream in Yosemite. 

Once they catch the killer that’s when the real mystery begins - wasn’t his little brother a national hero? Didn’t they make TV shows about this family? 

How did one brother become America’s sweetheart and the other America’s heartless serial killer?

One man wants to eat human flesh with a glass of wine. One man wants to have his "eggplant" bitten off and grilled. They end up going on a deadly date and filming the 4 hour long deed. They called it the "slaughtering."
