    The OKC Butcher

    The OKC Butcher

    In April of 1976, three men would wander into an abandoned building, which they soon discovered to be a house of horrors.

    Inside of the home were the dismembered remains of a young woman, whose identity would elude investigators for the better part of two decades. This killer, who seemed to have shown no shame in committing this vile act of butchery, was eventually given a nickname fitting their savagery years later after police tied them to at least two other acts of obscene violence.

    Because of the victims that they targeted, however, their crimes haven't received much attention in the decades since, and many details of their crime spree remain closely guarded by the killer, whose identity remains unknown today...

    The Con

    The Con

    This bonus episode is an interview with producer Patrick Lovell, who has been working on his new true crime docu-series "The Con" for the better part of the last decade.

    "The Con" is centered around the 2007-2008 financial crisis, which happened as a result of widespread fraudulent activity and the collapse of the housing bubble. The story is told through the lens of Addie Polk, a 90-year-old woman from Akron, OH whose house was foreclosed upon, ultimately leading to Addie attempting to take her own life... but that's really just the start of this never-ending story.

    In this interview, I chat with Patrick about how he got involved with the story, what avenues the docu-series explores, and how the recession of a decade ago might just be a taste of what's in our immediate future.

    Beatriz Mota

    Beatriz Mota

    In December of 2015, a graduation ceremony was being held at the Colégio Nossa Senhora Maria Auxiliadora in Petrolina.

    7-year-old Beatriz Mota attended the event along with her parents, Sandro and Lúcia, who were attending the graduation for two reasons: not only was Sandro a well-liked teacher at the private Catholic school, which was located right in the city center of Petrolina, but their oldest daughter (Beatriz's older sister) was graduating.

    As the ceremony began to wind down later that evening, both parents would notice that they hadn't seen their youngest daughter in several minutes. A search of the school grounds would ensue, leading to a grisly discovery a short time later...

    The National Hotel Epidemic

    The National Hotel Epidemic

    In January and March of 1857, President-elect James Buchanan stayed at the National Hotel in Washington D.C.

    Located along the National Mall, the National - formerly known as "Gadsby's Hotel" - was the most regal lodging choice in the nation's capital at the time. Many banquets and balls were thrown in the hotel's ballroom, and it made a logical choice for Buchanan to stay there in the days leading up to his inauguration.

    However, what people didn't know is that during his prior stay at the National, Buchanan and several of his staff-members had fallen ill to a mysterious illness, which would return with a vengeance during his second visit a month later. In the years since, some have theorized that poison may have played a part...

Great podcast!

I really enjoy this podcast. There are so many true crime podcast & I enjoy how they each have their own personal characteristics.

hard pass on this ,

It gets better?

Late to the party but hoping this improves as the hosts gets more familiar. The music is weird and I don’t need multiple minutes a show about how busy the host’s life and work is. Been pushing through hoping it’ll improve but I also hope the host catches on to language choices and minimizes opinions soon. “Prostitutes and other low class women” will be my clearcut ending soon.

Your cadence

Or infliction of your voice really takes away from what’s being said. No other way of putting it other than it’s really annoying to sit through.
