    Let The Women: Maggie Freleng on Murder in Alliance

    Let The Women: Maggie Freleng on Murder in Alliance

    Maggie Freleng is one badass journalist. As a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and producer, she gravitates toward telling the stories of underdogs – specifically the wrongfully convicted. So, when she heard about the 1999 murder of Yvonne Lane – a young mother from a the small town of Alliance, Ohio – and her ex-boyfriend who was blamed for the crime but had maintained his innocence for over a decade, Maggie started digging. And what she’d learn along the way in this investigation would test her mind, heart, and stamina in ways no one saw coming.

    This episode is part of a ten-part series called Let The Women Do The Work. Join host Gillian Pensavalle as she follows the stories of ten dynamic, inspiring, badass women in true crime.

    Let The Women: Alexandria Goddard on Dismantling Rape Culture

    Let The Women: Alexandria Goddard on Dismantling Rape Culture

    August 11th, 2012 was a murky night for many in the town of Steubenville, Ohio as local high school students scattered themselves among a handful of parties that took a turn for the worse. A 16-yr-old girl – who would come to be known as Jane Doe – was repeatedly sexually assaulted at the hands of football players and bystanders alike, and it would take an outsider to follow the digital footprints and piece together that night as well as the wider web of rape culture in the town’s social hierarchy. Here’s how crime blogger and legal advocate Alexandria Goddard turned this story into a necessary storm.

    The Last Call Killer

    The Last Call Killer

    In the early 1990s, fear and rumor swirled through New York’s LGBTQ community about a serial killer who targeted inebriated men leaving the city’s gay bars late at night. Their bodies, or rather body parts, were found wrapped in garbage bags and dumped at highway rest stops, far from the urban environs where they were last seen. Dubbed “The Last Call Killer,” it would take authorities almost an entire decade to stop him.

Hilarious

I have been watching true crime forever. A lot of the time I pick apart and joke about the absurdity of some of them. When I found this show I find myself driving and laughing so hard at all the true comments. My line is always “the truth hurts ya but jobs”!

tsurocks ,

I love y’all, let me count the ways

I absolutely love this podcast. My cousin got me hooked. The way Gillian makes fun of of garbage people and does impressions, will have you laughing, but the fact that Patrick gets so tickled that he can’t breathe…priceless… comedic genius. When the Queens accents bust out, I’m here for it. “Hey Tony, c’mere, ya gotta see this”. 🤣🤣🤣. I’ve listened to a little over 100 episodes and I’m here for the long haul. The banter, the garbage and hero bell…always avoiding “the morning zoo”…nothing but class, my loves. Ladies, you knock this outta the park. Love y’all so much and I plan on coming to see you live at some point. Xoxo -Julie

Girl!

Oh my gosh! I randomly stumbled upon your podcast and I am so glad I did. I absolutely love your commentary and banter. I’ve already listened to cases I have never heard of before. Keep up the amazing work!
