The Pepsi Paloma Story
The Pepsi Paloma Story has weirdly become an inevitable part of Filipino pop culture and true crime genre. Hers is a story of a young actress who probably never wanted to be one but was forced into the role at a very young age. Hers is also a story of powerful men getting away with a crime a normal Joe or Juan will not get away with. Researching this story in light of the Me Too Movement was even more impactful than I thought it would be. I may earn the ire of the men's fans or their relatives, should they ever get to listen to this or other podcasts who featured this story, but there is little debate about who was in the wrong here. So, with that being said, I hope you like this episode. Have a great day. Make sure to check out Lagim on social media especially on Instagram @lagimpodcast for more true crime content and updates!

Bonus Episode - Interview with Esdi San Diego
It started with a comment on one of my Maggie De La Riva Instagram posts some two months ago and ended up in this wonderful interview.

In this interview, Esdi and I talk about the late Judge as a mother and grandmother and her experiences during the trial. Sit back and enjoy this interview with a good cup of coffee or your favourite glass of vino.
The Michael Meiring Mystery
Michael Meiring was a US citizen who was originally from South Africa. After a visit in the early 90s, he was fascinated by the Philippines and returned many times in subsequent years. He was a treasure hunter but many think he was more than that especially after he was involved in a mysterious explosion in a hotel in Davao. Who was Michael Meiring and was he part of the US's war on terror in Southeast Asia? Listen to this episode now to find out more! Links to research resources are in Lagim's blog.
