    How to Rob a Bank

    How to Rob a Bank

    In a city where bank robberies were an everyday occurance, one Seattle bandit stood out among the rest. The FBI nicknamed him “Hollywood,” a savvy criminal inspired by heist films like “Heat” and “Point Break.” Beneath that elaborate prosthetic disguise was Scott Scurlock, a free-spirit living in a treehouse and spreading his stolen cash around. But when he plans to retire after one last big score, everything goes wrong.

    The Netflix film How to Rob a Bank traces Scurlock's escapades as the high-profile robber the cops are desperate to get their hands on. It shows the toll being “The Hollywood Bandit” took on him, as well as how his $2 million stick-up spree came to its cinematic conclusion.

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews directors Stephen Robert Morse & Seth Porges.

    Dancing For the Devil

    Dancing For the Devil

    Melanie and Miranda Wilking were TikTok’s favorite dancing sisters, until Miranda left the act to perform for the 7M management company. Robert Shinn was more than an agent to his famous dancers - he was a spiritual guide who instilled the tenants of the Shekinah Church he founded decades earlier. When Miranda’s family went public with their story, many online fans believed the dancers for 7M were all in a cult. As other members escaped and worked to rebuild their lives, it wasn’t until they came together to stop the cycle of their abuser that the real healing began.

    Dancing For the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult tells the story of the coercive church, its former members, and the performers still dancing online. It exposes the diabolical tactics used by cult-like organizations to exert control over people as well as the lengths families will go to keep their loved ones safe.

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews director Derek Doneen and executive producer Jessica Acevedo.

    SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched Dancing For the Devil yet, make sure to add it to your watch-list before listening on.

    Power

    Power

    From the slave patrols of the 1700s and the first publicly funded police departments of the 1800s to the uprisings of the 1960s and 2020s, the scope and scale of American law enforcement has expanded over time. Once a tool of the powerful to maintain social order, the police have now become a power unto themselves.

    The Netflix documentary film Power offers a visceral and immersive journey to demonstrate how we’ve arrived at this moment in history. It examines urgent questions about a growing and largely unchecked authority: who is policed, who is protected, who gets to decide, and why.

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews director Yance Ford.

    SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched Power yet, make sure to add it to your watch-list before listening on.

    Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal

    Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal

    It was a first-of-its-kind online dating site, one where the clients were already married and looking to have an affair. While Ashley Madison drew rebuke and ridicule for its product, its business soared, with millions of married people across the globe subscribing to the service. But hackers who infiltrated their system made an ultimatum: shut Ashley Madison down or we’ll release all of your customers’ data. Not only did the fortunes of the company hang in the balance, but so did the relationships of all those unfaithful spouses who thought they were paying for discretion.

    The Netflix documentary series Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal looks into the rise of the notorious website and the headline-grabbing 2015 data breach. It also tells the stories of those who used the site and faced the public and private consequences of exposure.
