Join me as we revisit, re-examine, and reminisce about the life, times, films and death of Hollywood's most beloved star--Marilyn Monroe.

    Episode 27 Part 2 Donald McGovern interview - Marilyn Monroe Radio with Samantha McLaughlin

    Episode 27 Part 2 Donald McGovern interview - Marilyn Monroe Radio with Samantha McLaughlin

    Part 2 of 3 with Donald McGovern here is some of what we cover in the interview.

    Dr. Greenson and how he weaved and tangled Eunice Murray in the entire scenario in the last months of Marilyn’s life.

    What Anthony Summers presented to the public was pure fiction—and dragging Marilyn thru the mud.

    We had a good laugh at the expense of Jeanie Carmen’s—with her assertion that she was on 5th Helena the morning of Marilyn’s death—anyone who’s been to or have seen photographs of the cul-de-sac knows that it is impossible to maneuver a large car such as hers.

    The unprofessionalism of Marilyn’s three doctors--who were prescribing and we can say over prescribing—medication to Marilyn.

    We went over June DiMaggio’s complete fabrication of her book and auction items she peddled.

    As well as, the concern of the endless supply of items the Strasberg’s seem to have of Marilyn.

    Also, touch on Mrs. Pollard—she was the woman who was said to have seen RFK along with the other ladies who were playing a game of bridge. It is claimed that he was seen by this card playing crew yet they were never put on the record.

    To the Thomas Cutchel affair which ended both Jack Clemmons and Cappel careers. If you haven’t read about this—you should and it goes into more detail in McGovern’s books.

    We go briefly into the water access or lack of water--due to water being shut off—Marilyn regardless was not without water because there was a Mexican water jug next to her bed. To the washing of Marilyn's bedsheets as was on record by Jack Clemmons.

    To covering Marilyn’s last hours and the possibility of her passing.

    The movie I mention—I will post a link for all of you to view. It is very interesting because--they go thru several scenarios and debunks theories thru science. Just as Donald’s book.

    What are your thoughts about Marilyn’s death—suicide--accidental or probable suicide. I want to believe that she didn’t take her life--like many of us…it’s a lot to process and even more so to accept.

    Cheers, Samantha

    Episode 26 Part 1 Donald McGovern interview - Marilyn Monroe Radio with Samantha McLaughlin

    My interview with Donald McGovern the author of Murder Orthodoxies: A Non-Conspiracist's View of Marilyn Monroe's Death.

    You're in for a real treat! We cover A LOT of ground!

    The one-time tryst Marilyn Monroe and JFK had while both were in Palm Springs. She was single and he was not—there was no long-term relationship nor any intension of becoming the first lady.

    Now, she did have a platonic relationship with RFK. There was no need to embellish more than what it was. We also cover his alleged helicopter ride on August 4th.

    The Norman Mailer’s—fictional novel--as if it were a written attempt by a 13 year old boy’s fantasy to Marilyn.

    The Coroner’s Report—where the Autopsy shows that Marilyn was never injected--nor was she given an enema or suppository.

    We went over--The pills that were swallowed verses injections—it fascinating—McGovern gives an in-depth analysis of the chemicals in Marilyn’s system—and it is very compelling. You decide for yourself—I implore you to get McGovern’s book and pour over the later chapters.

    Again, people you need to read this book. It is deep and so well written—no book comes close to McGovern unearthing of evidence and sourced material.

    We poke at--Frank Capell, Anthony Summers, Donald Spoto, Ted Jordan, Dr. Greenson, Dr. Engelberg, Robert Slatzer, Jeanie Carmen, Eunice Murray, Thomas Noguchi and John Miner.

A real tribute

It brings much information and entertainment to me and my home. It’s not just about Marilyn all the time but gives fans all they need. Great interviews

Respectful and professional

"Respectful and professional" doesn't sound very exciting, but it is if you're a long-time MM fan, as I am. The host of this broadcast is also a decades-long MM fan and she gives Monroe the respect and diligence that's missing in 99% of the media that concerns her. Samantha McLaughlin strives to determine what is factually correct, rather than dealing in lurid speculation and umsubstantiated rumors. I wish I had found this podcast earlier because it appears to have stopped producing episodes. If you are a true MM fan, and if you care about what is true and what is not, this is the ideal podcast for you. Thank you, Ms. MacLaughlin, for your hard work and professionalism. MM would appreciate it. I do.

Thank you

This show I’m listening to on the fake quotes is such a testament to MM’s true spirit. I’m sure she appreciates being recognized from the other side.
