Reverie means to daydream but sometimes when we drift off into our daydreams, they can morph into our anxieties, worst fears, horrific nightmares. We may start to get lost in thoughts about the dark things occurring in the world and questioning these happenings in life. Who? How? When? Why? What?

From telling the stories of crimes to sitting down with victims and their families, Paige is passionate about all aspects. Shedding light on the dark, terrifying things that have happened and still happen in the world is very important to her.

Paige hopes that through these stories she can bring awareness to injustices and the scary reveries around us that hide in plain sight.

    99. Laurie Bembenek: A Woman on the Run

    An ex-Milwaukee police woman, Laurie Bembenek, was accused of killing her husband’s ex-wife, Christine. The murder came after Laurie was let go from the police department. Was she let go for breaking the code of silence and having evidence of misconduct that was carried out by her fellow men in blue? Did she commit the murder or was it a set up by her husband who happened to be a police officer, too? New evidence is shocking but why isn't anything being done about it...

    96. Jake Bird: Tacoma, Washington Murders of Bertha and Beverly Kludt

    96. Jake Bird: Tacoma, Washington Murders of Bertha and Beverly Kludt

    Jake Bird worked on railroads and took the train everywhere he went. In Tacoma, Washington, Jake was sneaking around the streets and came across an axe in the backyard of Bertha Kludt’s home. What was supposed to be a so-called “easy” robbery turned into major bloodshed…
    Later, Jake put a hex on anyone who had a hand in his trial and were not on his side. A handful of those people died within a year or so.

    Karla Faye quit school as a little girl and went on the road with her mom. They were rock and roll band groupies and sex workers. After her mother passed away due to abusing drugs, she started to live life on the wild side with bikers and party heavily in her early 20s. Her friend Shawn, estranged wife to a biker named Jerry Dean, introduced Karla to Danny Garrett. They spent days doing hardcore drugs and alcohol. They went to burglarize Jerry Dean but Karla’s anger over a past situation, plus being drugged up, took over her and the robbery quickly turned into a double homicide.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lonf time listener who loves this podcast…. Paige delves into various crime stories with a straight-up view and calls it like it is with a warm southern accent. Her narration is smooth, knowledgeable, and concise. I also enjoy it when she joins other podcasters on shared stories. I highly recommend everyone to take a listen to Paige.
🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

Well done

Some true crime podcasts gloss over the details so we never learn anything new. Not so with this one! Graphic, yet respectful, and very well researched.
