    Black Label: Ub3r - The Minecraft Files

    Black Label: Ub3r - The Minecraft Files

    GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING



    ‌Minecraft is a game with a dark reputation. At least for those that have paid attention. In the future I plan on creating a more expansive covering the game’s ability to attract some of the world’s most depraved people. For now, just understand that what you’re about to hear isn’t as surprising for those in the know.

    64: The Murder of Jennifer Webb

    64: The Murder of Jennifer Webb

    Emotions lie deep within each of us. Hidden from outside view yet powerful and busy activations that twist and turn inside ourselves. They drive our behaviors and our choices.

    We aren’t always honest about what we truly feel because we are unsure and unwilling to evoke unknown reactions from those around us. An internal pressure cooker can result. Boiling with more ferocity as time uncontrollably creeps forward. Either that dangerous steam is released healthily or it explodes pushing decisions that are devastatingly final and entirely irreversible.

    Listener, the story you are about to hear is tragic and horrifying. Not everything is as it seems. The kind of individual who could carry out this crime is not one you want walking the streets. A person who is willing to do the unthinkable to protect their reputation. A complete lack of responsibility and unwillingness to face consequences leads to a shocking and brutal decision. It was a dark and devilish plan that failed miserably.

    63: The Actress, Samantha Wohlford

    63: The Actress, Samantha Wohlford

    Confidence and self-belief can be beautiful powerful emotions enabling a positive life and a balanced way of living. They can be and should be used for good. But when accompanied by selfishness and egotistical arrogance, hand-in-hand in an unhealthy chain, they create a cesspit of danger. Darkness can find a way in, burrowing into its core. 

    In Texas, in 2015 a chance meeting and a single conversation turned into frightful violence in less than twelve hours. Like a pack of wolves in silent premonition, individuals intertwined and crept through the night with no forewarning to their unsuspecting target. It was their calculated decision to pick up a life and forcibly remove it taking away their future and their children’s chance of knowing them. It was a cold and heartless act that devastated lives.

    Our Team Presents: Hometown History

    Our Team Presents: Hometown History

    From the same team that brings you Obscura - introducing our podcast Hometown History.

    Since 2016, Shane has been traveling to hometowns across America in search of forgotten history. Sure, these places may not be your hometown, but they are someone's and that is what makes them important. Shane travels to these places of forgotten historical significance and shares these stories with you.

    We all love hearing the unknown stories of the places we visit when planning a trip - like the Redwoods National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, or Sun Studio. But what about Parker's Cross Roads, Tennessee? Or the Island in Michigan where the only American King ruled? But if you also enjoy traveling vicariously then this is also a podcast for you.

    Black Label: Chaos

    Black Label: Chaos

    Tied together by two 911 calls. This episode evokes the feeling of chaos.

    Listener discretion advised.

    62: Chandler Halderson, Part 02

    62: Chandler Halderson, Part 02

    The most dangerous person of all is one with a twisted inner mind who blends into society without being noticed. Quietly watching and planning. Considering their options while participating in normal family life as if all was well. These are the people who pose the most threat. They are the ones who rear up, violent and sudden with no warning and no precursor.

    Defense against these attacks is almost always futile. What is left behind is a façade of innocence banking on previous good character and unimposing life to protect them and cover their hideous actions. Lives are taken and they are destroyed, and the perpetrator walks on. Unaffected, uncaring, and entirely self-serving. These are the people whom we should fear the most.

    Two lives were snatched away in July 2021 and two people who had never hurt a soul had their dignity stripped from them. The details of this case are harrowing and deeply disturbing. At the centre is a young man who has devastated lives with his senseless actions. A young man who possesses a character that is loathsome and dangerous. Listener, the tragic case of the Halderson’s is one you will never be able to forget.

    Warning: Violence, Dismemberment

Ridiculous monthly subscription charge

There actual factual, entertaining, enjoyable podcasts that are less than half of your monthly fee. $9.99???? Wondery is only $5 for Pete’s sake, for a good number of actual good pods. Sorry, but be warned, The pod is definitely not worth the money.

Well Done Sir

I have to stop some podcast because I can’t hear them over background noise at work - But I hear your powerful voice and the powerful reality of your words - thank you - great listen
