    DENNIS GRIFFIN - SURVIVORS

    DENNIS GRIFFIN - SURVIVORS

    The survivors of victims of murder and suspicious death are often victimized twice—first by the loss of their loved one and subsequently by the system they rely on for justice. In pursuit of police transparency, retired investigator Dennis Griffin takes us inside the world of real crime cases to expose the shocking truth behind the alarming number of unsolved murders and suspicious deaths classified as accidental, self-inflicted, or natural—with little to no investigation.

    ALICE KAY HILL - UNDER A FULL MOON ; The Last Lynching in Kansas

    ALICE KAY HILL - UNDER A FULL MOON ; The Last Lynching in Kansas

    UNDER A FULL MOON: The Last Lynching in Kansas tells of the tragic abduction and death of an eight-year-old girl at the hands of a repeat offender in 1932. This crime stands apart as the last mob lynching in Kansas. Based on true events, this account takes a deep dive into the psycho-social complexities of pioneer times and their impact on this particular crime and the justice meted out to the perpetrator.
    Beginning in the year 1881, and written in a chronological narrative non-fiction format, author Alice Kay Hill vividly weaves the stories of the victims and the families involved. She reveals how mental and physical abuse, social isolation, privations of homesteading, strong dreams and even stronger personalities all factored into the criminal and his crimes. 
    Spanning the years of settlement to the beginnings of the Dust Bowl, historic events are lived as daily news by the seven families whose lives become intertwined. Historically accurate and written with an intimate knowledge of the area, UNDER A FULL MOON is as personal as a family diary, as vivid as a photo album found in an attic trunk, and will remain with the reader long after the book is closed.

    WILLIAM MURRAY - FOREVER AFTER

    WILLIAM MURRAY - FOREVER AFTER

    God awakens from a deep hibernation. He has no memory. He does not know who He is. He is utterly alone. There exists only the light of His consciousness, for there is no Creation. Not yet.
    Having no resources other than His effulgent mind, the Almighty proceeds along a mysterious path––a path of self-discovery in which He undertakes to solve the greatest mystery, not only of all time, but of the time before time began.
    The eternal enigma of who God is and how He came to be....

    INDECENT ADVANCES - JAMES POLCHIN

    INDECENT ADVANCES - JAMES POLCHIN

    Stories of murder have never been just about killers and victims. Instead, crime stories take the shape of their times and reflect cultural notions and prejudices. In this Edgar Award–finalist for Best Fact Crime, James Polchin recovers and recounts queer stories from the crime pages―often lurid and euphemistic―that reveal the hidden history of violence against gay men. But what was left unsaid in these crime pages provides insight into the figure of the queer man as both criminal and victim, offering readers tales of vice and violence that aligned gender and sexual deviance with tragic, gruesome endings. Victims were often reported as having made “indecent advances,” forcing the accused's hands in self-defense and reducing murder charges to manslaughter.
    As noted by Caleb Cain in The New Yorker review of Indecent Advances, “it’s impossible to understand gay life in twentieth-century America without reckoning with the dark stories. Gay men were unable to shake free of them until they figured out how to tell the stories themselves, in a new way.” Indecent Advances is the first book to fully investigate these stories of how queer men navigated a society that criminalized them and displayed little compassion for the violence they endured. Polchin shows, with masterful insight, how this discrimination was ultimately transformed by activists to help shape the burgeoning gay rights movement in the years leading up to Stonewall.

    TINDERBOX - ROBERT FIESELER

    TINDERBOX - ROBERT FIESELER

    Buried for decades, the Up Stairs Lounge tragedy has only recently emerged as a catalyzing event of the gay liberation movement. In revelatory detail, Robert W. Fieseler chronicles the tragic event that claimed the lives of thirty-one men and one woman on June 24, 1973, at a New Orleans bar, the largest mass murder of gays until 2016. Relying on unprecedented access to survivors and archives, Fieseler creates an indelible portrait of a closeted, blue- collar gay world that flourished before an arsonist ignited an inferno that destroyed an entire community. The aftermath was no less traumatic—families ashamed to claim loved ones, the Catholic Church refusing proper burial rights, the city impervious to the survivors’ needs—revealing a world of toxic prejudice that thrived well past Stonewall. Yet the impassioned activism that followed proved essential to the emergence of a fledgling gay movement. Tinderbox restores honor to a forgotten generation of civil-rights martyrs

Sound quality is bad

I like the show. I like interviews especially by people that ask intelligent questions. However it is extremely frustrating to listen to. Alan is too low volume, Kevin is too loud and the guests sound like they are in a hole. This is a common complaint in other reviews but I’m hoping another review might persuade them to fix it so I don’t have to unsubscribe to this one. It’s not worth the annoying sound.

Great podcast!

I think it’s ironic that all the Trump cultists are leaving negative reviews because you dare not like Trump after all the crap they had to say about Obama. At least nobody on the left has ever compared Obama to God or started a 4chan cult because we’re not children. Or insane. They leave reviews like “I wish I could do more than leave a negative review” because these people are unhinged and are the ones who raise kids who shoot up schools because to them violence is how they solve their problems.

Anyways, ignore the loons and keep the episodes coming!
