    Juggalos

    Juggalos

    A deep dive into the bizarre history of this fascinating but massive subculture. In the late 80s, a rap duo formed called the Insane Clown Posse - comprised of two men nicknamed Violent J and Shaggy 2Dope. They would go on to become massively successful for a time, but more importantly found a massive community of people all over the country called Juggalos. They're a tight-knit community of likeminded weirdos who wear clown face paint, listen to ICP, and...at one point were classified as a gang? On this episode of Deep Cuts we dive into the bizarre story of Juggalos.

    1918 Pandemic, AKA Spanish Flu

    1918 Pandemic, AKA Spanish Flu

    The 1918 global pandemic is almost note-for-note identical to what is happening today. In 1918, a severe case of influenza ravaged the entire planet - killing around 50 Million people worldwide in the span of a few years. The way we handled with it, the misinformation, the denial, the politicization, and everything else surrounding the Spanish Flu was oddly similar to what has happened in the last year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and yet we didn't seem to learn anything from it because, for whatever reason, the Spanish Flu just hasn't really been taught in schools or kept in the cultural consciousness. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we delve deep into the story of the 1918 global pandemic, and its similarities to our current situation.

    Woman Who Co-Wrote Novels With a Ghost

    Woman Who Co-Wrote Novels With a Ghost

    Pearl Curran wrote several novels in her lifetime, but she claims they were all actually written by a ghost. In the early 1900s, Pearl Curran became famous because she was a published novelist who claimed to have written all of her books by communicating with a spirit through a Ouija board. The ghost would communicate the words to her, and she would write them down. Was this true? Was Pearl insane? Or was she a con artist? We dive into the odd and fascinating story of Pearl Curran on this episode of Deep Cuts!

    How Gamestop Bankrupted Wall Street

    How Gamestop Bankrupted Wall Street

    An exhaustive breakdown of how Reddit bankrupted Wall Street using Gamestop stock. In late January 2020, a bunch of amateur stock traders in the subreddit /r/WallStreetBets decided that they would hatch a plan to drive up the value of stock shares in the ailing video game retailer, Gamestop. They bought up tons of the stock and within a few days the shares went up from $12 to over $400. Because a bunch of hedge funds had been majorly betting against Gamestop's stock improving, this move literally cost them billions and bankrupted a few of them. Here is the step-by-step walkthrough of how one of the craziest financial moments in American history happened.

    Dan Bilzerian, Social Media Fraud

    Dan Bilzerian, Social Media Fraud

    He projected a lifestyle of riches, fame, women, cars, and guns...but it was all a lie. Dan Bilzerian started as a professional poker player that came from a rich - albeit controversial - family. Then, at some point in the 2010s he transitioned into being this ubiquitous Internet influencer - posting pictures of his wild parties, surrounded by beautiful models, in giant mansions, brandishing huge guns, and just generally showing off an aspirational lifestyle that garnered him a ton of attention. Everyone wanted to be him, and that's why he was famous. But as time went on, we started to slowly see the illusion unravel and realize that none of it was real. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the social media deceit of Dan Bilzerian!

    The Warrens, Ghost Grifters & Secret Pedophiles?

    The Warrens, Ghost Grifters & Secret Pedophiles?

    The Conjuring was based on them, they were world famous ghost hunters, but they had two very dark secrets. Throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, all the way up to their deaths in the late 2000s, Ed and Lorraine Warren were world famous for hunting ghosts, spirits, and other supernatural entities. They were a fiercely religious married couple who claimed to be demonologists and mediums. The Amityville Horror was based on one of their cases. They were the owners of the Annabelle doll. They are the characters portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the Conjuring franchise. But they had a huge secret - their entire careers were a total scam. They were grifters. But wait...they had an even darker secret. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we delve into the bizarre and horrifying secret lives of the Warrens.
