The Mason Holdings Radio Hour, an intimate experiential podcast in the spirit of good old-fashioned radio, launches this spring with The Lost Diaries of Elena Hoyos. Mason Holdings’ latest show, Consumption, was inspired by the disturbing true story of Carl Von Cosel and Elena Hoyos. As part of the development of Consumption, we researched Elena’s story – reaching out to historians and scouring the few remaining bits and pieces that reveal anything of her brief life before Carl Von Cosel exhumed her corpse, posthumously married her, and installed her in his home. Our research revealed, of course, a very real girl and woman -- not a grotesque spectacle, property of a delusional pseudo-scientist.In the interest of breathing life back into her memory, Mason Holdings is honored to share selections from The Lost Diaries of Elena Hoyos, starting in 1925, when she was still a healthy teenager, up until her death in 1931.Producer & Narrator: Tracy WellerProducer, Editor & Sound Design: Johann Schram ReedArtwork: Gary Springer - www.gary-springer.pixels.comGraphic Design: Johann Schram Reed

Esoteric and engrossing

Apropos for this moment in time, this podcast gives voice back to the voiceless, in this case Elena Hoyos, victim of a notorious and grisly crime. But here the focus shifts back to Elena the young woman and she’s a fascinating creature- I look forward to every week!
