    Disproportionate

    Disproportionate

    Every state has had marching in the streets. It may feel overwhelming at times, but it feels equally promising that change is inevitable. Today we’ll be telling the story of Aaron Campbell, a young, black, unarmed man that was shot in the back and killed by Portland Police. How a lack of training and communication cost him his life. How the officer fought to be put back on the force. And how that same officer claimed there was never another option. Additionally, Alisha will walk us through some of the statistics surrounding police brutality, why the Black Lives Matter movement should matter to everyone, and what you can do to help keep it moving forward.

    Alaska is a land of wild tundra, making it an ideal home for adventurers and hunters alike. In the early 1980’s, a hunter would become Alaska’s first known serial killer. Instead of the big game he was known for decorating his walls with, he turned his sight to the vulnerable population of sex workers and indegious women. Through the bravery of a survivor and the tenacity of detectives, Robert Hansen’s second trophy collection would be discovered as would his terrifying secrets.

Holly-olly ,

Well-researched and interesting

I’m from WA. Great podcast!
When I was 21 in 1997 I worked at an RV park where the GRK used to camp all summer with his wife and in-laws. It was a membership only park so they would come for the weekends mainly and use the pools etc. The park also threw BBQ parties for their guests throughout the summer with live music - and the grown ups drinking and the kids running all over.
Guess who worked at the pools? Moi. And closed them at 10pm nearly every night. And then - alone - walked through dark woods to my car.
Yeah yeah he’d stopped by then but you never know. 😶
Side note: Turns out he had hidden at least three of his victims nearby by the park.

Loving this

Fine if you want to listen to women cackling

Candidly, this is mostly two chatty women. It is one thing to have give-and-take, but this is simply inane.
