    Episode 76: The Arkansas Hitchhike Killer PART TWO

    Episode 76: The Arkansas Hitchhike Killer PART TWO

    For the first time ever, it's the second part of a two-part episode! It's also the finale. Last week we concluded with James Waybern "Red" Hall agreeing to confess to being the Arkansas Hitchhike Killer, along with the murder of his wife, Fay. We continue from there, going through Red's accounts on every murder, perhaps with some surprises along the way, and then go through his trial.
    In the post-show, Andrew finishes Adventure Time, is watching the What We Do in the Shadows TV series, and playing Metroid. Caitlin is listening to Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, and recounts her recent trip to the Arkansas Scottish Festival where she makes a dubious purchase for her nephew.

    Episode 75: The Arkansas Hitchhike Killer PART ONE

    Episode 75: The Arkansas Hitchhike Killer PART ONE

    For the first time ever, we're doing a two-parter! Don't tell Caitlin, she doesn't know. We're following the life and times and crimes of James Waybern "Red" Hall. Red suffered a traumatic head injury as a youngster and started to exhibit odd behavior. Eventually, Red outgrew his surroundings and started traveling America by hitchhiking. He even got married and had a child, but would still disappear at months at a time. What was he up to?
    The post-show is shorter than normal because we just talk about so much and so many. Andrew tries to stop being such a coward and starts the Resident Evil 2 remake. Caitlin ended Halloween because she already watched Hocus Pocus. Did she also summon real demons via D&D?
    No. Obviously not. Don't be stupid.

    Episode 74: Sidney Nicole Randall

    In March of 2013, 14-year-old Sidney Nicole Randall went missing from her home in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. Also missing was her stepfather, John. Except then John returned with Sidney still missing, and so the search for the young girl began.
    Afterwards, Andrew talks about how wrestlers are the worst, Shin Godzilla rules, and the Forgotten City. Caitlin hates anime, almost liked the Nevers, and more!

    Episode 73: Malik Drummond

    Episode 73: Malik Drummond

    In November of 2014, two-year-old, Malik Drummond wandered away from his home in Searcy, Arkansas. A massive search ensued, involving over 400 volunteers. The search yielded no results and eventually the FBI offered a $20,000 reward. Just over a year after Malik's disappearance, the truth made itself known.

    Caitlin talks about the impact that former A-State professor, Joe Bonner had on her life, and who sadly passed away recently.
    Andrew talks about watching Super Sentai shows, which is what would eventually become Power Rangers in the US. These things are very different.

    Episode 72: Ebby Jane Steppach

    Episode 72: Ebby Jane Steppach

    Ebby Jane Steppach had dreams of going to cosmetology school. In 2015 she went missing, kicking off a sad story of that calls into question the investigative qualifications of police in Arkansas' One True City.
    There is a $10,000 reward for information. Call 501-404-3128 if you know something.
    We talk VERY briefly about COVID. Please get vaccinated. Andrew is the laziest person ever and got vaccinated. It's that easy.
    In the nonsense part, we talk a bit about THE Suicide Squad, Andrew forces us into talking about wrestling (the truest form of art) because CM Punk is BACK baybay! Caitlin loves Coke + Coffee while Andrew thinks it's vile. She also loves a new kit-kat and has news about glasses. Andrew can't relate as a person with eyes that natural selection shed its blessings upon.
    We talk more about volcanoes than you would think. Geology is NOT biology. Geology is also not paleontology. We talk more about that Rasputina song than anybody has ever talked.
    Splitgate = Halo + Portal and that seems neat.
    We freak out about noises. As far as Andrew can tell they didn't translate to the actual recording.

    Marcel Wayne Williams grew up in a broken home, leading to a broken life. He went to adult prison when he was only 15 years old where he would suffer physical and sexual violence. In 1994, he would be released and then kidnap, rape, and murder Stacy Rae Errickson. Williams would become one of the four people that the state of Arkansas hastily executed when their supply of the drug midazolam was expiring.
    Caitlin then tells us her stories from Florida and Andrew goes back to his childhood.

Itskendyl ,

One of the great true crime podcasts!

I look forward to hearing from Caitlin and Andrew every week! They are a great mix of good research and appropriately used humor. They focus on the victims and not in glamorizing the criminal! I love their focus on Arkansas as crimes here are not always represented in true crime media coverage! I look forward to their growth and upcoming episodes!
