    Episode 101: The Murder of Jon-Benet Ramsey Part 2

    A lot of things in this case scream THIS IS AN INSIDE JOB, but was it really? I think most people think Burke probably killed her, but did he really? Or was it Santa Claus all along. This week Sarah and I discuss a few of the major theories about what happened to Jon-Benet.

    Episode 99: The UT Tower Shooting

    Episode 99: The UT Tower Shooting

    Hi Lil Hellions!

    This week we're talking about a case very close to us, The U.T. Tower Shooting. The 60s was an entirely different time, but it is easy to see how not much has changed in some ways. We're still dealing with mass shootings on a weekly basis and it is exhausting. I hope this episode can shed light on some of the issues we have been facing for the past few decades.

    Episode 98: L.I.S.K.

    Episode 98: L.I.S.K.

    This week we're talking about the Long Island Serial Killer (who may or may not still be out there). This case is such a bizarre and sad case. From 1996 to 2011 (maybe even 2013), the Long Island Serial Killer took the lives of many sex workers in the area. The investigation was a mess, and many people (including me) believe there is police corruption involved.

    Episode 97: An Interview with Molly Eagan

    Episode 97: An Interview with Molly Eagan

    This week I had the amazing opportunity to interview Molly Eagan. Molly is a trauma-informed writer, activist, and award-winning investigative journalist. In this episode, we talk about her and Lizzy Hershberger's new book, Behind Blue Curtains. It is a memoir about Lizzy's experience leaving the Amish and coming forward about the abuse she experienced as a young child there. Her story is, sadly, very common among these communities. That's why it is so important they are sharing her story. I am so thankful for Molly's time and these women's bravery.

    Bonus Episode: The Von Erich Family

    Bonus Episode: The Von Erich Family

    Hi Lil Hellions! A few weeks ago, I recorded an awesome episode with my lovely friend Joe Shaw. Joe hosts DTalks Podcast and After the Encore Podcast and is so incredibly talented. He joined me to talk about the Von Erich family. They were a wrestling family in the 80s in Texas and all but one have died an extremely tragic death. Y'all know I know nothing about sports, but I found this story so crazy interesting. It's an incredibly heartbreaking example of how damaging unaddressed mental illness can be.

    Find Joe at DTalks or After the Encore 3

    See you all in hell (and also this Wednesday),

    Lara 3

Calm down with the AAVE, it’s not cute

“The tea” is AAVE. Revisit whether it’s for you to use and do better. Yes it’s queer but it’s also black, so leave it alone.
