The Villisca Ax Murders
On June 12, 1912, the residents of Villisca, Iowa woke to find their small town changed forever. Sometime during the night the well-known Moore family and their two overnight guests were killed in their beds. The murder weapon: an ax taken from the Moore property. Left behind was a crime scene so horrifying and odd that people are still trying to make sense of it over one hundred years later.
The Lost Cosmonauts
In the 1950s and 60s, the United States and USSR were locked in a space race to land a human on the moon.

In the aftermath of the Cold War, many around the world began to think the Soviets were masters of propaganda, and they weren't as successful as they appeared to be. Were they knowingly killing cosmonauts and hiding their deaths for the sole purpose of being 'first'? Today we discuss the conspiracy of the Lost Cosmonauts.

The sprawling building in Southeast Ohio looked more like a castle than an asylum. Thousands of people over 119 years came through the doors, committed for reasons such as childbirth, general bad health and illness that was still decades away from being diagnosed. Some may still linger in the halls. Each had a story to tell.

Each year, the allure of Mt. Everest attracts climbers from around the world.

Some climbers achieve their dreams on Everest, but many die trying. This week, we will examine common issues that plague high-altitude climbers, tell stories of mountaineers whose bodies are permanently embedded on the mountain, and discuss why, as one climber put it, "Above 8,000 meters is no place for morality."
