    The Chameleon Killer

    The Chameleon Killer

    For more than forty years, Terry Rasmussen evaded police and preyed on countless women and children.
    He became known as the chameleon killer for his ability to blend in with his surroundings and disappear.
    In this bonus episode we explore eight murders and disappearances linked to Rasmussen and the trail of destruction he left behind.
    And be sure to listen to last month's episode about the Bear Brook case before listening to this one, because there's a lot of overlap!

    Bear Brook & Forensic Genealogy

    Bear Brook & Forensic Genealogy

    This episode originally aired as a Patreon bonus episode in November 2020.
    Four bodies in two barrels were found 15 years apart in Bear Brook State Park in New Hampshire. This 35-year-old case is only partly solved, but what is solved is because of Forensic Genealogy.
    This month we’re looking into the incredible story of the Bear Brook Murders and their investigation, how forensic genealogy was first used as a crime-fighting tool, and some of the potential risks and dangers of this shiny new technology, which is perhaps one of the biggest developments in forensic science since the development of DNA profiling.

    The Mad Bomber

    The Mad Bomber

    **This episode originally aired as a Patron bonus episode in October 2020.**
    For 16 years New York City was under attack by a serial bomber. In the 1940s and 50s The Mad Bomber placed dozens of bombs around New York City in theatres, businesses, train stations, and libraries. The bombs left an entire city on edge for years as the police desperately searched for their creator.
    Thanks to some smart thinking by investigators the Mad Bomber case used one of the very first criminal psychological profiles created by a psychiatrist and opened the door for a whole new investigation technique.

    La Voisin

    La Voisin

    In 17th Century Paris, Catherine Monvoisin was a famous fortune-teller, poisoner, and practitioner of black magic. She helped Paris high society with their problems. Her poisons and black magic may have had a hand in murdering between 1,000 and 2,500 people.
    And then she got involved with a woman looking for help killing her lover -- King Louis IVX. That's where things got messy for La Voisin.

Bluelg ,

It’s a must!

I was kinda late to the party but this podcast was recommended to me to help me cope through the last lockdown!

What can I say apart from I love it! Just finished the most recent episode! I find myself getting lost in every episode and forget that I’m actually sitting listening to a podcast, it’s like I’m sitting with 2 friends listening to them talking about a little part of history. (Especially that of Glasgow, as a Scot living just outside Glasgow most of the stories I hadn’t even heard of so it was great learning about these).

I also love the well researched, general laid-backness of the shows, I get you script to a certain point but the going off track a little adds to the humour between 2 friends.

Can’t wait to hear more!

FUN!

Really enjoy listening to these two. Love a good sidetracked story and the giggles they get themselves into. So happy KJ told me about this podcast.

Deep dive true crime

Each case is clearly well researched and told in an easy to digest fashion. They do a good spread of different types of true crime and have some very funny moments. Give it a listen!
