    S02E04 | Meth, Mayhem and Murder | The Bludgeoning of Prof Carl Mischke

    On April 15th, 2013, Prof Carl Mischke was found beaten to death and face down in his blood-soaked bed. He was the ninth in a spate of murders of gay men in and around Johannesburg, South Africa but was his killing really the work of a serial killer or was his murderer actually someone closer to home?

    S02E03 | Upstairs Horror in Downtown New Orleans | The Arson of the UpStairs Lounge (Part III)

    When gay New Orleanians headed out to the UpStairs Lounge in the French Quarter on Sunday, June 24th, 1973, they had no idea that many of them would never be returning home. A fire started in the main stairwell leading up to the bar quickly spread, as patrons desperately tried to escape the burning building. Until the Pulse Nightclub Massacre in 2016, this was the worst loss of Queer life in American history.

    In Part 3, we look at the aftermath of the fire, including the total disregard and lack of compassion for the victims displayed by politicians, law enforcement, religious figures and the public.

    S01E16 | Murder in Mooinooi | The Violation of Joey & Anisha van Niekerk

    S01E16 | Murder in Mooinooi | The Violation of Joey & Anisha van Niekerk

    When Joey and Anisha van Niekerk didn’t arrive in Pretoria for Joey’s father’s funeral on December 11th, 2017, their families knew something was wrong and drove to the women’s farm in Mooinooi, in North West Province. They found the farm untouched but, when they encountered Koos Strydom, who rented a workshop from the couple, his story didn’t quite add up. This is the story of how greed brought about the senseless murder of two women all because of a farm.

    To celebrate #PrideMonth, we have partnered with Maidwell Love, an NGO based in Johannesburg, that raises funds to combat gender-based violence (GBV) and support LGBTQ causes. We are giving away a Maidwell Love mug to one lucky listener, so check out our social media pages for details on how you can win.
