    EP89 | The Burning of the Drum | A Brief History Of Fort Drum And The Philippines

    The defenders of Bataan showed fierce resistance but low supplies and hasty preparation of defences meant defeat was imminent. The limerick written by war correspondent and last journalist to leave before the fall of Corregidor, Frank Hewlett, came to symbolize the strength of the men fighting in Bataan. 
    ‘We're the Battling Bastards of Bataan, No Mama, No Papa, No Uncle Sam, No aunts, no uncles, no cousins, no nieces, No pills, no planes, no artillery pieces, And nobody gives a damn!’

    Three years later, in 1945, the US came back to Manila Bay, to retake the city and their concrete battleship in an act of brutal revenge. 

    It's time for a history lesson.

    EP 87 | Taking Out The Trashman

    EP 87 | Taking Out The Trashman

    Debbie Scaling was desperately looking for help. She had been hired to deliver a luxury yacht, Trashman, to its new owner in Fort Lauderdale. The owner of this sleek 58-foot Alden luxury sailing yacht with a pine-green hull and elegant teak trim, had made his millions in the garbage business, hence naming his new yacht- Trashman. The crew delivering his new toy though? Not so well assembled.

    EP86 | The Flight Of The Double Sunrise

    EP86 | The Flight Of The Double Sunrise

    The Double Sunrise service was formed in 1943 to re-establish the Australia–England air link that had been cut due to the fall of Singapore in 1942. The service initially operated from its base in Nedlands, Western Australia near Perth, to the Royal Air Force base at Lake Koggala near Galle in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).
    It was later extended to Karachi in India (now part of Pakistan), which was the terminus for the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) service from England. The name of the service was derived from the crew and passengers observing two sunrises on each flight.

    EP84 | Loki 7 | Roger Charles Bell

    The blast blew out windows and sent metal fragments flying, ripping through walls and wooden beams inside the Prince Edward Island courthouse, shattering the stillness of a fall Monday morning.
    It was Oct. 10, 1988, just after 6 a.m. The homemade pipe bomb had been hidden in a flower bed at the rear of the building. The force was so powerful it drove some pieces of metal into the judges’ chambers on the second floor.
    In such a comfortably rural society, where crime is largely an abstraction and the people are suspicious of mainland influences, something like Loki 7 was a homegrown horror.
