    Reflecting On: Episode 1

    This "mini-sode" is something I want to try as kind of an after show. It's me offloading some of my thoughts, without a script. Just me, a microphone, and maybe a beer or glass of wine. You get to hear all of my "uhhs", "you knows" and whatnot.  http://worsethanfictionpodcast.com/https://www.facebook.com/WorseThanFictionPodcasthttps://twitter.com/WorseTFPodcast Theme music by Ecdysis:https://ecdysis66.bandcamp.com/https://www.facebook.com/ecdysisofficial/Tranquility by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4543-tranquility/License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

    Episode 6: The White Miasma of Death

    I'm stepping away from true crime on this episode to talk about a different kind of horror. I'll be detailing an event perpetrated by the most successful mass-killer in history...the Earth itself.http://worsethanfictionpodcast.com/https://www.facebook.com/WorseThanFictionPodcasthttps://twitter.com/WorseTFPodcastPlease Support my Sponsor, Ballsy-Go to https://ballwash.com/ and use promo code Fiction20 to get 20% off of your order!

    Episode 5: I Can't Breathe

    Episode 5: I Can't Breathe

    This is the story of a very unusual type of serial killer, that had a very specific victim type. Though not as graphic as my usual stories, it is possibly the most heartbreaking one I'll ever tell.http://worsethanfictionpodcast.com/https://www.facebook.com/WorseThanFictionPodcasthttps://twitter.com/WorseTFPodcast True Crime From Eh To Zed :https://truecrimeehtozed.wixsite.com/website  Theme music by Ecdysis:https://ecdysis66.bandcamp.com/https://www.facebook.com/ecdysisofficial/ Music: https://www.purple-planet.com/Music from https://filmmusic.io"Unnatural Situation","Red Letter", "Echoes of Time V2", "Dark Times" & "Gregorian Chant" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

    Episode 3: The Aurora Hammer Slayer

    Episode 3: The Aurora Hammer Slayer

    Most of us leave the doors unlocked while we're home. We never consider the fact, that at any given time, a stranger with a lust for blood could casually stroll right in, catching us off-guard. This story is a grim reminder that we should probably be a little bit more diligent about securing our homes, especially while we're in them.(This is an updated version that fixes an audio issue in the original upload where there was supposed to be a short interview with James and Kim Haubenschild. It was accidentally muted in the original upload.)Theme Song by: Ecdysishttps://ecdysis66.bandcamp.com/https://www.facebook.com/ecdysisofficial/Background Music from https://filmmusic.io"Digital Bark", "It Is Lost"  & "Ultra Low Note" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Main Sources:The Denver Post9News Denverhttps://theoremfact.wordpress.com/Various Articles
