    A bookkeeping note.

    "I thought the anthology season was Season 5? ...But now the Daniel Shaver story is Season 5? ...What happened?"

    I originally planned this case to take one episode. But over the past months, the story has grown to an unwieldy length. It finally reached a point where I would be doing a disservice to everyone to try and tell it in a single episode.

    That's the long way of saying that the anthology season is still alive and well. It has just been retitled: Season X.

    You can find it on Patreon and tapesfromthedarkside.com under the Season X tab. On other podcast apps, it will just be an unlabelled season (they don't allow letters for season labels).

    We'll be adding to the 1-case / 1-episode format down the road.

    S4, Episode 1: The Scientist and His Mistress

    S4, Episode 1: The Scientist and His Mistress

    Part 1 of 5.

    Season 4: The Bogle-Chandler Mystery

    It all started early on New Year’s Day. 1963. The body of a scientist was found—dead and naked. Nearby, was the partially nude body of his colleague’s wife. There were no cuts, stab marks, or bruises on either of the bodies. And the subsequent tests for poison came up negative across the board.

    What would follow is a mystery that has perplexed the citizens of Australia for over half a century. But now...we think we have an answer.

    Part 5 of 5.

    Season 4: The Bogle-Chandler Mystery

    After 60 years of relative silence, two competing theories emerge in this Austrailian-mystery-of-the-century.

ElizabethSandman ,

Can’t stop!

I heard about this from True Consequences and listened to the psychopath phone call from the recent episodes then listened to the Spirit family massacre, then the Dylan Redwine season and now I’m on the Jesse Washington Waco season episode 2. I love the host- I wish I could get the bonus content (I’m not sure why we have to pay for better audio quality?) but I can’t afford to get patreon for every podcast I love! I definitely recommend this for the research, quality, straightforward delivery of the story without any banter, etc (I am ok with banter on certain pods) it’s a great format and different than other pods! Thanks for the content.

Season 3 review

Great show! I appreciate your attention to the inept politicians that could care less about children in the system and broken families.

Started out great

The first season was interesting and was about a case I had never heard before but by second season the lecturing and political views started. Disappointing I want to hear facts about true crime not the author’s political opinions. It’s a no for me.
