    Tom Dooley & the 1866 Murder of Laura Foster w/ Charlotte Corbin Barnes - A True Crime History Podcast

    Most of us are probably familiar with the Kingston Trio song, "Tom Dooley", but fewer may realize that it was based on the true life murder of Laura Foster in 1866 North Carolina. 
    Charlotte Corbin Barnes is an unapologetic supporter of Tom Dooley's innocence, and explains the crime, the complications of the trial due to the intense political climate in North Carolina in the era of Reconstruction, and her suspicions on what might have really happened. Her book is called "The Tom Dooley Files: My Search for the Truth Behind the Legend".

    Midnight Potboiler: The Doctor & the Devil, or the Midnight Adventures of Dr. Parkhurst

    Midnight Potboiler: The Doctor & the Devil, or the Midnight Adventures of Dr. Parkhurst

    In March of 1892, a private detective named Charles Gardner was hired by the Reverend Doctor Charles Parkhurst, moral crusader and social reformer, as an escort through the seediest, vilest slums in New York City. The purpose of this slumming tour was so that Dr. Parkhurst could gather evidence to present to a grand jury to aid in their investigation of municipal corruption and neglect. Included here are allegedly truthful, highly colorful, and likely embellished excerpts from Gardner's 1894 book "The Doctor and the Devil, or the Midnight Adventures of Dr. Parkhust". I narrate chapters 4 and 5 of in this episode (which were the first two nights they hit the town together).
    Midnight Potboiler is my third and final possible new addition to the Most Notorious lineup, a narration of a true-crime related historical fiction and non-fiction, all in the public domain

    True Crime Tripper: The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum

    True Crime Tripper: The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum

    True Crime Tripper is the second of three new shows I'm trying out on Most Notorious. If launched in 2020, it would be a travel show that focused on historic sites, hotels, restaurants and museums related to true crime history.
    In this first pilot episode I chat with Sue Vickery, tour guide at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum in Fall River, Massachusetts. She talks about the history of the house, gives a refresher on the murders, and offers details on how someone can stay in the very same room where Lizzie's step-mother met her unfortunate end.
