    Chris Hansen, Exploitative Conman Pt. 2

    Chris Hansen, Exploitative Conman Pt. 2

    He used to be a hero, but now he exploits the abuse of children for views and money. In the 80s and 90s, he was a hard-hitting journalist, tackling some incredibly important stories that shed light on issues like slave labor, the crack cocaine epidemic, and child trafficking. In the early 2000s he was host of the insanely popular TV show, To Catch a Predator. For a while, Chris Hansen was a legitimate celebrity, probably the most famous of any reporter, and beloved by all as a literal hero doing a great public service. However, somewhere along the way he lost sight of the altruistic nature of what he was doing, and now he spends his days shamelessly exploiting underage abuse victims for YouTube views and a quick buck. In part 2 of Deep Cuts' exploration of Hansen, we explore the rise and fall of To Catch a Predator, and the weird career path Hansen took afterwards.

    Did Bella Thorne Break Online Sex Work?

    Did Bella Thorne Break Online Sex Work?

    A single photo this former Disney Star posted on porn app, OnlyFans, might have destroyed an industry. When former Disney Channel star, Bella Thorne, decided to break the Internet with a bold new experiment in which she would join the massively popular paid content service OnlyFans - largely used by online adult stars and sex workers - and then make a movie about it, what eventually was supposed to be her attempt at shedding light on the industry and de-stigmatizing it, actually led to a situation where she singlehandedly destabilized an entire industry with a single photo. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the day that Bella Thorne joined OnlyFans.

    George Zimmerman, Murder Profiteer

    George Zimmerman, Murder Profiteer

    For years he's been profiting off of the trauma of a teenage boy's murder. In 2012, George Zimmerman saw 17-year-old Trayvon Martin walking through his semi-gated community and became suspicious. The teenager had decided to walk to a nearby convenience store for a snack, but Zimmerman felt like something was just not right. He pursued the boy, and eventually got into an altercation with him that ended with the death of Martin. A lengthy court case ensued, and Zimmerman was eventually acquitted on all murder charges. However, in the years since, Zimmerman has made a living profiting off of sick and twisted schemes meant to capitalize off of the death of Trayvon. On this decidedly more sober episode of Deep Cuts, we take a look at the horrifying legacy of George Zimmerman.

    Speed Racer Secretly Changed Cinema

    Speed Racer Secretly Changed Cinema

    It was a financial and critical flop, but it secretly changed the way movies are made. In 2008, the Wachowskis released a weird, experimental live action adaptation of the 1960s anime classic, Speed Racer. The movie starred Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, John Goodman, and Susan Sarandon, and was not well-received by critics, audiences, and totally flopped at the box office. It has a small continent of fans (including us of course), but ultimately became a forgotten footnote - lost to time. However, a reassessment of the film reveals how it completely changed the way we tell cinematic stories now, and may have been the most influential film of the last 20 years. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the influential legacy of The Wachowski's Speed Racer.

    Who ACTUALLY Created Spider-Man?

    Who ACTUALLY Created Spider-Man?

    Did Stan Lee & Steve Ditko create Spider-Man? Or was the idea stolen from a Halloween costume? In the Silver Age of comics in the 1960s and 70s, things were an existential mess from a creator perspective - especially at Marvel comics. There were no artist or writer unions, characters were often created in bull pen-type situations where authorship was given to the company at large instead of the actual people doing the creating. And, in a system where creator-ship was not properly recorded, and artists were unfairly disregarded, many of the people involved in the creation of the books all have their own versions of the story. One of the most notorious examples is Spider-Man. Stan Lee claims he created the iconic wall-crawler because he thought of the name and the superpower. Steve Ditko claims he's actually a co-creator because he designed the web-slinger, drew most of the original books, and basically wrote them as well. But what if Spider-Man existed BEFORE either men created him? What if the idea was stolen from a Halloween costumed created by a different legendary comic book artist a decade prior? On this episode of Deep Cuts we explore the story, the speculation, and the enigma behind the true creator of Spider-Man.
