    Ep 83: Zombie Virus for Your G******s - Family Annihilators

    Well, Roya asked the Patreon discord if she should be chill or not chill. They said chill. She disagreed. Roya covers John List, one of the many crimes assisted in being solved by a skilled forensic artist. Casey talks about the Jameson Family whose disappearance and later recovery are shrouded in mystery and still left unsolved.

    Ep 82: Kool-Aid? In This Economy? - Jonestown Pt 2

    Ep 82: Kool-Aid? In This Economy? - Jonestown Pt 2

    We're back back back again, with the terrible conclusion of Jonestown. You're probably going to have a bad time, but you'll come out of it knowing that Leo Ryan was a legit dude and Hyacinth Thrash has a sick name.

    Ep 81: She was Ride or Die - More Like Ride AND Die - We'll Get to That Later - Jonestown Pt 1

    Ep 81: She was Ride or Die - More Like Ride AND Die - We'll Get to That Later - Jonestown Pt 1

    Patreon asked for it, and patreon got it. We posted a poll a few weeks ago for what cult our Patreon members would like us to cover and the winner was Jim Jones/The Peoples Temple/Jonestown. 

    This is part 1 of 2, exploring the early life of Jim Jones, his development into a religious leader, then into a cult leader, the move to Guyana and ending with the arrival of Congressman Leo Ryan. 

    Also, sorry about Roya's audio. She was dumb and forgot to check her mic settings.

    Ep 80: Killing Germans Was Their Job - Bad Bitches

    Ep 80: Killing Germans Was Their Job - Bad Bitches

    In this episode, we opted to cover Bad Bitches again. We accidentally did a themed episode outside of that as we're both talking about female fighters during WW2 in the Soviet Union. Roya talks about how the sound of sweeping brooms haunted the dreams of Nazis because of the Nachthexen, or Nightwitches, an all female night bombing brigade. Casey talks about Lyudmila "Lady Death" Pavlichenko, the incredible woman who still holds the highest confirmed death count of any female sniper.

    Ep 79: Nothing Says Debutante Ball Like 'Meet Me at the Tuberculosis Hospital' - Asylums

    This episode is brought to you by a comment on Twitter! We were asked if we had done any episodes about asylums and we hadn't really done an Asylum focused one so here ya go! Casey talks about the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and the invention of the lobotomy. Roya talks about Willowbrook State School, Cropsey, and the kidnapping and murder of Jennifer Schweiger and Holly Ann Hughes.

    Ep 78: Surrender to the Bear

    This episode we're talking about stuff we've been mentioning for awhile on the podcast. Roya talks about the horrors of Delphine LaLaurie and how much colonialism sucks. Casey talks about a furry hero of WWII who defintely didn't wear boots, but definitely did drink beer, Wojtek.

10/10 would socialist again

It’s like they’re there with you, having a friendly chat about horrifying murders and cannibalism

Mr. Brinke ,

Ridiculously racist

If you are white or heterosexual and enjoy being insulted then this is your show. I enjoy true crime a lot but cannot stomach their nasty divisive attitude .

KatieIsJustOK ,

Keep in’ it real, keepin’ it fun

I love this podcast because, not only is it informative from all the research that they do, but it also is fun to hear the crazy things they say. It’s a nice change from the typical stuffy and monotoned podcasts. I love their dynamic and I learn a lot every time I listen.
