    Episode 172: Roselle and Michael

    Michael Hingson was on the 78th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He says the first indication that something was wrong was the sound of a muffled explosion. Then the building began to tilt, and he felt the floor drop like an elevator. But Michael Hingson didn’t panic because his guide dog, Roselle, was calm.

    Michael Hingson’s book is Thunder Dog.

    Episode 171: Sealand

    Episode 171: Sealand

    Today's episode begins with rock & roll and ends with royalty. When bands like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles were becoming popular, they weren't played much on the radio in England. The BBC controlled the airwaves at the time, and some listeners described its music offerings as "square." So aspiring DJs packed up their record collections, got in boats, and sailed past the territorial limits of the UK, where they set up pirate radio stations in the sea—sometimes on abandoned WWII sea forts. One fort was taken over by a man named Roy Bates. When his pirate radio station didn’t work out, he refused to give up the fort. He raised a flag on it and announced that he and his family would be forming their own nation. A spokesperson from Britain's Ministry of Defence said: "This is ludicrous.”

    Michael Bates’ book is Principality of Sealand: Holding the Fort, and Dylan Taylor-Lehman’s book is Sealand: The True Story of the World’s Most Stubborn Micronation and Its Eccentric Royal Family.

    Episode 170: Ian Manuel

    Episode 170: Ian Manuel

    "The phone rang and rang and a lady picked up on the other end and I still remember the operator saying, 'You have a collect call from Ian for Debbie. Will you accept the charges?' And I remember Debbie saying, 'Yes, I accept.' And I just remember blurting out, 'Ms. Baigrie, I just called to wish you and your family a merry Christmas and to apologize for shooting you.'"

    At 14 years old, Ian Manuel was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and spent an estimated 18 years in solitary confinement. Today, he tells his story.

    His book is My Time Will Come.

    You can listen to our full conversation with Bryan Stevenson in Episode 46: Just Mercy.

Very well made

Excellent podcast. It covers all aspects of crime. I loved the story about the institute who researches the decay of dead bodies in different settings.
Also, very respectful towards victims.

Cool podcast

Cool podcast, I like real interviews. Different from other crime podcasts. Phoebes voice is so calming and relaxing (bit caricatural speech sometimes but ok).
I recommend !
