    EP32: Web of Lies • Chandler Halderson

    In July 2021, Chandler Halderson of Wisconsin filed a missing person's report for his parents: 50-year-old Bart Halderson and 53-year-old Krista Halderson.  He told authorities that on July 2, 2021, his parents had been picked up by unknown "friends" before they headed to a rustic cabin three hours away. They never returned.  It wasn't long before Chandler's story began falling apart, and his intricate web of lies began to quickly - and horrifically - unfold.

    EP30: A Killer Party • Tyler Hadley

    On July 16, 2011, troubled teen Tyler Hadley threw the "party of the year" in Port St. Lucie Florida.  About a hundred attendees showed up at the Hadley home to drink, do drugs and party through the night and until the early morning hours.

    EP28: The Epidemic of U.S. Mass Schools Shootings

    Within a span of 10 days, 21 men, women and children were murdered in New York and Texas by two lone gunmen.  Following these massacres, there is shock, horror, public outcry, and even worse, a resolve and hopelessness that this has become our reality.
    Numerous research and studies have been done to try to answer why these mass shootings occur, but tragically nothing is ever done to prevent them from happening.

Concise and interesting

This podcast gets to the information quickly and is thorough. I’ve been listening non-stop. I would highly recommend.

p.guillen ,

Listen at 1 1/4 speed

Other than that I like that the cases are told so differently from other podcasts that you don’t realize you know the story until a while.

Teon77 ,

Repeat Repeat

The cases that are discussed are old cases that have already been covered extensively over and over. How about some new material that hasn't had much coverage?
