    Episode 15: JFK

    This week we tackle the never ending case of discussion of the JFKassassination.  We cover the Oliver Stone film JFK, talk about the different conspiracies out there, and some of the evidence related to them.
    The Zapuder Film is massively important part of any theory behind this case.  The film can be seen here:

    Episode 14: In Cold Blood/Capote Pt. 2

    Two major movies were released based on the Clutter Family murders.  This week we take a look at both "In Cold Blood" (1967), and "Capote" (2005).  The former focuses on the "actual events" of the crime, arrest, interrogation, and executions.  The latter pays more attention to how the book and film "In Cold Blood" came to be.

    Episode 12: Blue Caprice

    Episode 12: Blue Caprice

    Welcome back.  We apologize for being off last week, but we had some technical difficulties which we have hopefully worked out.  This week we talk about the DC/Beltway sniper case.  This happened just a year after the 9/11 attacks and led to a great deal of panic in the Washington DC Area.  The two responsible for these shootings started their murder spree months prior to the attacks that we all know about already.  Give us a like on Facebook, and follow us on twitter and Instagram.

    Episode 11: Frozen Ground

    Robert Hansen, also known as the Butcher Baker was a serial killer that lived in Anchorage Alaska.  The actual events, like most of theses films don't exactly match up.  Robert had a special way of treating his victims.  We didn't know about this killer before we saw the movie several months back for the first time.  So give a listen and hear learn abut the deviousness of this more unknown serial killer.
