    Ep. 121 - The Shining Girls

    During the early part of the 20th century, radium was being promoted as a miracle cure for what ailed you. But a group of young women working in a New Jersey factory learned the deadly consequences of being exposed to the radioactive element. The story that followed is both tragic and horrifying.

    Ep. 120 - The Hunt

    Some stories you come across are so tragic and outrageous, it's difficult to believe they could really happen in modern society. On July 9, 1982, a French-born 14 year old girl living in Germany named Kalinka Bamberski died under mysterious circumstances. This would lead her father Andre to spend the next three decades on a tireless quest to uncover the truth, and to bring the man who raped and murdered his daughter to justice.

    Ep. 118 - The Cave of Witches

    Ep. 118 - The Cave of Witches

    Back in 1880, a tiny island off the coast of Chile became the site of one of the last witch trials in South America. The defendants who were rounded up told a horrific tale of black magic, extortion and murder. And if we are to believe the whole story, they may also have created something unspeakable in a remote hidden cave.
