Crawlspace is where crime meets culture.
We host interesting conversations about unsolved murders, serial killers, cold cases and paranormal activity. We go beyond entertainment as we dig deeper to tell stories of crimes, vanished people, and injustices. Our guests include survivors, authors, journalists, podcasters, advocates, and educators. 
Starting in 2017 with a deep dive into the disappearance of Brianna Maitland, Crawlspace is hosted by Tim Pilleri & Lance Reenstierna of the Missing Maura Murray and Missing podcasts; and occasionally by Jennifer Amell of Dark Valley. 
Frequent topics include unsolved murders like the JonBenét Ramsey case, wrongful convictions like John Giuca, serial killers like the Zodiac killer, Christopher Wilder, and Jeffrey Dahmer. We speak with experts in criminal psychology like Dr Michelle Ward, survivors like Jane Boroski, and even Satanist Lucien Greaves. But we also have a lighter side where we discuss ghosts and paranormal activity, weird cryptids like Bigfoot and Mothman, and fun mysteries like the dolls found in a Michigan couple’s mailbox.
Authors like Jon Ronson, Rabia Chaudry, and Daniel Stone have joined us and we’ve even spoken with familiar names in comedy and entertainment like Melissa Rivers, Patrick Hinds, and Dave Holmes.
Crawlspace is a Crawlspace Media production.

    446 // Murder in Hollywood w/ Casey Sherman

    446 // Murder in Hollywood w/ Casey Sherman

    Welcome to Crawlspace. In this episode, Tim Pilleri & Lance Reenstierna have another fascinating discussion with the great Casey Sherman. Casey is an acclaimed journalist and author of more than ten books. He is also a contributing writer for Esquire, Time, The Washington Post, and Boston Magazine. His latest book, A Murder In Hollywood, is the subject of this conversation and in it, Casey digs deep to uncover the dark underbelly of old-time Hollywood. Join us as we navigate through the lives of Lana Turner, her daughter Cheryl and Lana's wildly abusive lover, a mobster named Johnny Stompanato. A Murder In Hollywood goes beneath the glitz and glamour of 1950s Hollywood and reveals the horrors of how stars and starlets were systematically abused and taken advantage of.

Air vent cleaning

Best thing i hsve ever done doe my health. Having my air vents cleaned. Changed my life and use the machines too

Sean Wilson episode very good. I’m a white / female. In the1970 I was a squad car police office. I quickly learned how crazy our prison system is. At least therapy. Just nothing and most should not even be there. Some need to be contained for life: pedifiles, serial killers. But really very few fit in that group there is no rehab. Nothing and generally just regular folks. So ridiculous and sad. Good for you Sean for trying to help the situation. God bless you. 👩🏼‍🦳🤍🙏🏼

brummersted ,

Mehhh

Such great topics. Was so excited to listen to the missing men of Boston series, but jeez, I knew more than their expert. Just too much rambling about nothing. I don’t get it. Do some research!

btykodi ,

Hopeful

Please tell me that there are more than 2 episodes actually discussing something no covered by another podcast? I get the promos and appreciate them because they help me find stuff I’d like to listen to………but then when the whole podcast is just about promoting another podcast - 😩 very
frustrating
