    Stories from after 9/11

    Stories from after 9/11

    How did 9/11 the day become 9/11 the idea? That question drives award-winning host Dan Taberski (Missing Richard Simmons, Running From COPS, The Line) to shift his focus to what happened on 9/12, and every day after that. 9/12 is a poignant, surprising, and surprisingly funny seven episode series about people who wake up on 9/12 having to navigate a new, radically altered world. A teenager gets caught up in an out-of-control conspiracy theory that he helped start. A Pakistani business owner finds hundreds of his Brooklyn neighbors are disappearing. Joke-writers at The Onion must figure out just how soon is “too soon”? 9/12 asks what it all means. We know what happened on 9/11. But what happened on 9/12 to alter our memory and our perspective forever? 

    Listen to 9/12: wondery.fm/9_12_GenerationWhy

    All seven episodes of 9/12 are available to stream now on Amazon Music or Wondery+. Episodes will release weekly everywhere starting September 8th.

    Wondery Presents: SUSPECT

    Wondery Presents: SUSPECT

    A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker? As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later. It’s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.

    Peter Bergna

    Peter Bergna

    June 1st, 1998. Slide Mountain, Nevada. Peter Bergna and his wife Rinette were involved in a deadly accident on Slide Mountain, near Reno, Nevada. The truck they were traveling in fell 800 feet down the mountain, killing Rinette upon impact. Miraculously, Peter survived, somehow managing to jump out the driver’s side window. Immediately crash site investigators noticed that the evidence didn’t match Peter’s story, leading to a criminal investigation and Peter’s conviction for first-degree murder. Did Peter intentionally crash to kill his wife when he grew unhappy with the marriage, or was it a tragic accident that led to a wrongful conviction?

A different thought about Brittanys culpability- does she have any ownership for bringing Jonathan into this situation? Obviously she knew her husband was violent. Thee is no way she didn’t know given what a psychopath he was. I understand he forced her to do it but from a liability view - she could be looked at as culpable because she had a reasonable expectation that if she stepped out on her husband he might do something harmful to her or the other guy??

I’m having a hard time buying it. You keep trying to excuse her because of her fear of her husband but if she was so afraid of him and he was so controlling that he drove her and picked her up for work, etc…, how was she even having an affair.

Episode 397. Some very important food for thought I wish I could talk to them directly about this but the autopsy said she takes thyroid medication but ……. Thyroid issues are directly connected to mental break downs and delusions and mental paranoia especially if unmedicated or wrongly medicated!!!!!!
