    Cautionary Tales Presents: Endless Thread

    Cautionary Tales Presents: Endless Thread

    While we're working away on new episodes for Season 3, check out Endless Thread, a podcast from WBUR. Endless Thread reveals untold histories, unsolved mysteries, and other wild stories from the internet. They recently did a whole series on internet memes. In this episode, we hear the little-known origin story of the "Woman Yelling at a Cat" meme -- straight from the Woman herself -- that might make you think twice about ever using the meme again. They also explore why a loss of context is crucial for the spread of memes, but often problematic.
    You can listen to the rest of the meme series, and more great Endless Thread episodes at https://www.wbur.org/podcasts/endlessthread

    Lost Hills Season 2: Dead in the Water

    Lost Hills Season 2: Dead in the Water

    This week, we're sharing a special preview of the new season of Pushkin's show Lost Hills: Dead in the Water. Lost Hills investigates the dark side of Malibu, California. Beneath a seductive facade, this city of billionaires, celebrities, and surf bums is hiding something menacing.
    Season 2 takes place in the early ‘80s, as Malibu was changing from a low-profile beach town into a celebrity haven, full of new money and hard drugs. When a woman and her son mysteriously drowned, her husband was arrested for their murders—and ultimately convicted. But to this day, many people—including the victim's family—claim he’s innocent.

    The Truth About Hansel and Gretel

    The Truth About Hansel and Gretel

    Was the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel - the story of a woodcutter’s children abandoned in the woods and left at the mercy of a witch - in fact, early true crime? A hit book - The Truth About Hansel and Gretel - said that historical records pointed to the story being based on fact. Are we too quick to dismiss the truth behind tall stories? Or are we always falling for tales that are too good to be true?
    The first of two special Halloween editions of Cautionary Tales. Next up... The Mummy's Curse.

    The story of Jack the Ripper we all know... is wrong. Tim Harford talks to historian Hallie Rubenhold (host of Bad Women: The Ripper Retold) about her research that dispels many of the myths about the awful murders that terrified London in 1888 - and how she's putting the victims center stage.
    You'll also get to hear an episode of Bad Women: The Ripper Retold - which transports you back to the slums of Whitechapel as the killer's bloody spree is about to begin and introduces you to the women who will soon become his victims.
