    Josh Bloch | Journalist, The Lost Kids Podcast

    Recognize this guy? He was my guest on Episode 19, where we explored his amazing work on the CBC podcast, UNCOVER: Escaping NXIVM! That's right, it's Josh Bloch - my first returning guest - this time to discuss his latest work, the UCP Audio podcast, The Lost Kids, which focuses on the troubled teen industry-  and guess what? It has possible roots to a bizarre cult - I am seeing a theme here.

    Josh is a talented journalist and I love how he thinks and how he reports his findings. If you haven't already, be sure to check out The Lost Kids and let me know what you think. Also, if you want to watch the live event I did with with Tori Telfer ( my 1st guest!) about NXIVM and other cults, you can watch it here. Finally, this is the book that  Josh references that I want to make available as a resource following his podcast. Help At Any Cost by Maia Szalavitz.

    Charlotte Lang | FBI Agent, NETFLIX Fear City

    Charlotte Lang | FBI Agent, NETFLIX Fear City

    When I watched Fear City - the new three part docu-series about the mafia in 1980’s New York, I immediately zeroed in on FBI agent Charlotte Lang. I wanted more of her story. And lucky me, I got it! Now retired, Charlotte shares her not so conventional path to the FBI (she answered a newspaper ad after working sales for IMB), and some mob related stories that you won’t see on Fear City ( SHE HAD LUNCH NEXT TO FAT TONY AND SPIED ON HIM). Come for the mafia stories, stay to hear what it was like to be one of a handful of Female agents at the bureau. 

    I think you are going to love her and this doc as much as I did.

    Christian Barth | True Crime Author

    Christian Barth | True Crime Author

    Christian Barth is an author and attorney living in Connecticut, but hails from the lovely Garden State - New Jersey. His most recent book, The Garden State Parkway murders, is about about the unsolved murders of Susan Davis and Elizabeth Perry, which occurred on Memorial Day Weekend, 1969in Ocean City, NJ. Christian recalls his parents discussing this case while driving along the very same highway where their bodies were discovered. His curiosity around the case combined to his deep interest in the American era of the late 1960's inspired him to write this book which ended up being a nine year long journey.

    You will understand why when you hear our conversation. Among the many suspects in this case, Ted Bundy and Gerald Stano make an appearance, with Bundy's possible involvement being controversial to some. Though not a known serial killer, one suspect ended up being an active member of the Aryan Republican Army, and known white supremacist.

    This book is so rich in both context and case details, that I hope it wakes the memory of anyone still alive that might have information about the case.  You can find more about Christian and his work here. You can find The Garden State Parkway Murders and his first book, The Origins of Infamy, here.  Learn more about Christian and find him on social via his website.

    Cheyna Roth | Investigative Journalist and True Crime author

    Cheyna Roth | Investigative Journalist and True Crime author

    Cheyna Roth is an investigative journalist and true crime author, but her career began as a lawyer in the prosecutors office. Hear all about what inspired the change, and most importantly, what led to her 1st book ( JUST LAUNCHED YESTERDAY), COLD CASES: A True Crime Collection. Cheyna and I had a great chat about all aspects of true crime, including which victims we care about and why. We spend sometime discussing the Freeway Phantom Killings and why the victims - all young women of color, received far less media coverage than their white victim counterparts. The case remains unsolved and the 6 families have not received closure or justice.

    As a continuation of the DIE-ALOGUE Summer Reading Series, we are giving away a signed copy of her book to a lucky listener! After listening to this episode, tweet a link to the episode (wherever you listened) and tag me: @diealoguepod and @Cheyna_R for a chance to win a copy! https://twitter.com/diealoguepod   https://twitter.com/Cheyna_R

    Harold Schechter | True Crime Historian + Author

    Harold Schechter | True Crime Historian + Author

    Harold Schechter is a true crime historian with an impressive 43 books under his belt. You might fancy yourself an expert on serial killers, but Mr. Schechter, legit and officially, which you will hear in our conversation. He is also Professor of Literature and Pop Culture at Queens College which only validates his expertise in story structure and history. He is just a walking, talking encyclopedia of true crime factoids, stats, history and stories! I am upping my true crime trivia game thanks to Harold.

    Hi latest book, RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES, released yesterday. I highly recommend this book if you love true crime or movies, and espeically if you love both. Each chapter is based on a popular film and the true crime case or story it is based on. Did you know the following movies have roots in true crime? The Fugitive, Alpha Dogs, SCREAM, Dirty Harry, The Hills Have Eyes and so many more. Let's embark on a reading journey that will surely frighten, amaze, confound and entertain you.

    Benjamin Taylor | Civil Rights Attorney

    Benjamin Taylor | Civil Rights Attorney

    Today's episode will give us a legal refresher on topics that are relevant to current events. Benjamin Taylor, partner at Taylor Gomez Law brings kindness, wisdom and action to today's conversation! I enjoyed my time with Benjamin and hearing how his career pivot ( from finance to law) led him to advocating for clients who's rights had been violated. We talk a lot about definitions of terms we are hearing a lot right now: civil rights violation vs. hate crime, defunding police vs. police reform. Best of all, Benjamin leaves us with ACTIONS we can take to affect change. I am grateful for Ben sharing his time and expertise. Learn more about his law practice here and follow him on twitter here.
