    Epi 43: Poisonings

    Happy Friday!! Today we’re sharing stories on some of the most prolific poisonings throughout history…
    First of a badass woman, known to be the most successful serial killer whose name you’ve never heard. Giulia Tofana was able to murder hundreds of men over the course of nearly 50 years without being caught — until, in a shocking twist, a bowl of soup caused her downfall. 
    Then, a candy-centric crime wave that struck Japan in the 80’s. Through 1984 and 1985, a mysterious group calling themselves “The Monster with 21 Faces” waged an extortion campaign poisoning the 2 largest candy corporations in Japan. After countless resources and time spent on the case, the culprit was never caught and the mystery continues….

    Epi 41: A Weird World & The Westfield Watcher

    Epi 41: A Weird World & The Westfield Watcher

    Happy Friday!!! Today we're sharing 2 crazy stories...

    First is the story of a Weird World. Pauline Dakin's childhood in Canada in the 1970s was full of secrets, disruption and unpleasant surprises. She wasn't allowed to talk about her family life with anyone - and it wasn't until she was 23 that she was told why...

    Next we're talking about the infamous and super creepy Westfield Watcher. Several days after Maria and Derek Broaddus closed on the almost 4,000-square foot home, they received a letter from someone who claimed to be watching the home and that his family had been watching the home for years. The Broaddus family purchased the house for $1.3 million to raise their three children, not far from where Maria Broaddus had grown up, but the idyllic home turned out to be less than wonderful...

    Epi 40: The Panama Papers

    Epi 40: The Panama Papers

    The Panama Papers are a collection of leaked company documents that gave a glimpse into how the world’s richest and most powerful people avoid paying taxes by basically cheating the system and being shady AF.
    The Background:
    In 2016, journalists from a German newspaper obtained 11.5 million documents from the law firm, Mossack Fonseca, that exposed how some of the world’s most prominent politicians, business leaders and celebrities may have used offshore bank accounts and shell companies to conceal their wealth or avoid taxes.For those who are not familiar with the term- offshore banking refers to the deposit of funds by a company or individual in a bank that is located outside their national residence.  Due to way less tax regulations, and like, zero transparency, you are able to get away with some shady sh*t.And then this little German cutie started leaking documents to a local German newspaper and it was j-u-i-c-y.We still don’t know who this guy is, he goes by Jon Doe to remain anonymous; however, since his first interaction with Bastian Obermayer (that Investigative Reporter), over 11.5 million documents from that sketchy law firm were leaked… Leading to history’s largest data leak, ever. WTF Moments:
    Offshore banking is 100% legal and has been going on for decades, but some see it as a trick or perk for the wealthy.In 2018, 60 of the largest companies in the USA paid no taxes on pre-tax income of 79 billion dollars.Conspiracies range from this being “an attack on enemies of western capitalism” to “being a distraction for the 2016 US Presidential Election Circus Show” to all of this being a “strategic leak” – we discuss these in more depth in this ep.Netflix is being sued over their movie depicting the story of the Panama Papers – btw, if it is still available, we highly recommend… plus Meryl Streep is in it.Oh ya, and the journalist that helped leak the story was f*cking murdered.

    Epi 39: Reincarnated Twins & A 35 Year Flight

    Epi 39: Reincarnated Twins & A 35 Year Flight

    Happy Friday! Get ready, these stories are CRAZY...

    First, we're talking about the supposed reincarnation of the Polluck twins - John and Florence Polluck lost their girls in a tragic car accident in 1957.. A year later, Florence gave birth to twins, which John thought were his girls reincarnated.  John sounds a little crazy, but the personality traits, birthmarks, and even memories the twins had of their late sisters are too freaky to just be a coincidence...

    Then, we're talking about the longest flight ever, Santiago Flight 513 - On September 4, 1954, Santiago Airlines Flight 513 departed from Aachen, West Germany, destined for Porto Alegre, Brazil. The flight should have taken around 18 hours, instead, it took 35 years. On October 12, 1989, without any contact with air traffic controllers, Santiago Flight 513 was spotted circling the Porto Alegre airport, where it eventually made a successful landing.  Upon opening the doors, authorities found something still more shocking: the skeletons of 92 people, buckled into their seats. The skeletal body of Captain Miguel Victor Cury was found in his pilot’s seat, hands on the controls, with the engine still humming. - what in the actual f*ck.
