    138: Killing Versace: The Hunt for A Serial Killer

    138: Killing Versace: The Hunt for A Serial Killer

    A little after 8:45 am on the morning of July, 15, 1997, famed fashion designer Gianni Versace was shot execution-style on the front steps of his Miami Beach mansion. The assassin was 28 year old Andrew Cunanan--a hanger on who claimed to have met Versace in San Franciscio a few years before (though nobody knows if this is true.). When Cunanan flees the scene of the murder, a week long manhunt ensues as authorities come to realize that Cunanan had murdered four other men in his cross country journey to assassinate Versace.

    Based on The New York Times best-selling book of the same name, The Most Dangerous Animal of All is a documentary series that explores one man's search for the father who abandoned him, only to uncover the worst: he believes his father is the Zodiac killer, one of the most infamous serial killers in American history. In this episode, the evidence is presented, and it's compelling. From a near identical photographic match, to a finger print, to DNA evidence, it seems possible that the Zodiac has finally been unmasked.

    135: Unseen

    In 2009, Cleveland police discovered the bodies of eleven women decomposing in the house and yard of known sex offender Anthony Sowell. With unprecedented access to the surviving victims, UNSEEN tells a chilling story about the invisibility of women on the margins of society and raises troubling questions about why this killing spree went unnoticed for so long.

    Rebroadcast: Say Her Name: The Life and Death Of Sandra Bland.

    Rebroadcast: Say Her Name: The Life and Death Of Sandra Bland.

    On July 10, 2015, a 28 year-old black woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over in a small Texas town for failing to use a turn signal when she changed lanes. She was ultimately arrested and taken to the county jail. Three days later, she was found dead in her cell. The official coroner's report ruled the death a suicide, but many people believe that Sandra Bland was murdered. Sandy, as she was known to her family and friends, became a national figure in the Black Lives Matter Movement and "Say Her Name" attempts to uncover the truth behind her arrest and death.

I love you guys but....

Why do you have to shout so loud? Your spit is literally all over my phone from screaming at me so hard

Meekers2809 ,

Not what I expected

I love me some crime podcasts & documentaries. So in mid April during quarantine I went looking for a new podcast. I started with True crime Obsessed Chris Watts episode. When I found myself laughing at Patrick talking about he’s “that best friend” I knew I found an awesome podcast! I subscribe to the patreon that weekend, and have been bingeing ever since! My favorite outtake would have to be at the end of the Menendez Murders episode 4, when Gillian brought our her Patty from the staircase impression! I laughed so hard. Love this podcast
