    Nikki With An “i”

    Nikki With An “i”

    Nikki Kuhnhausen was born “Nicholas.” From a very young age her mother Lisa knew her son wasn’t like the other boys at school. In 6th grade Nikki had the courage to come out, identifying as female. She embraced the person she truly felt she was, unapologetically. But when Nikki suddenly went missing from the Vancouver, WA area one day…it would be some time before anyone learned what had actually happened to the at-risk 17 year old…

    The Dirty Truth

    The Dirty Truth

    Most of us are at least peripherally familiar with the story of John Meehan, a.k.a the infamous “Dirty John,”  the con-artist who terrorized women across the United States. But when the news broke of what happened to John during his final moments, the infamy surrounding his abusive escapades strangely led to several international TV deals, docuseries, and was even the basis for some of the most successful investigative true-crime podcasts ever created. Fortunes were made as a result of his long history of domestic violence and abuse, but the victims of the traumatic events were of the few who never saw a substantial pay day. In this episode we interview Terra Newell - the woman who finally put an end to the despicable “Dirty John.” She provides an eye opening look inside the strangest kind of limelight, discusses ethics and monetization in true crime, and explains what life’s really like after being involved in a homicide  that captivated the world.  

    Written by Michael Dunphy Jr., Executive Produced by Michael Ojibway. 

    Special Thanks to Terra Newell.

    Good Cult is an investigative podcast about the dark corners of the New Age self-help movements and the American counterculture.

    Suspect Your Elders

    Suspect Your Elders

    “Respect your elders.” It’s something we’ve all heard since we were young. Albert Flick, a 76-year-old US Army veteran from Westbrook, Maine fit the precise mold of the type of individual we’re expected to revere. You’d never know based on appearance alone that this man had an extremely dark & violent past. When a judge gave Mr. Flick another chance at life after years in and out of prison for violent crimes, he started over in a new town where no one knew of his past…but allowing this elderly man to walk free proved to be one of the most costly & deadly mistakes the state of Maine could have ever made.

    The Secret Diary

    The Secret Diary

    “Why didn’t she just leave?” This is a question usually proposed by the uninformed. Individuals unaware of just how difficult and dangerous it is for victims of domestic violence to get out of their toxic relationship. It’s never that simple and everyone’s situation is different. A young school teacher by the name of Amber Guichelaar was one of these women. She wanted to get out and almost did. A tragedy that was first reported as an accident, would turn out to be much more than that. When detectives found letters Amber had left behind, they would finally reveal the truth of what really happened.

    Finding Jordan

    Finding Jordan

    In 2017, just days after Thanksgiving, a 25-year-old woman from Keystone Heights, FL mysteriously disappeared. Authorities wasted no time in launching their search efforts, as this wasn’t the average missing person case. Jordan Cooper was severely intellectually challenged and had never been left alone for more than a few hours. She was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt at her house on Payne Road. As law enforcement questioned her family with a suspiciously checkered past, they failed to look toward one individual who had been hiding in plain sight the entire time…

Clover_Naturally ,

Absolutely Great

Michael Ojibway recounts these events with such power and clarity. Giving each subject matter careful justice and much needed clarity. Where mainstream media loses the real issue of every story, Invisible Choir tells the story of the people who’s voices were taken, instead of glorifying the monsters who have taken them away.

DanielPineda ,

Leftist propaganda

Used to be a really good podcast, too bad it’s becoming leftist propaganda, I’ll stick to sword and scale

nikimia4545!! ,

Politics

Too much of a woke undertone.
Otherwise would be good.
