    The One About Cults - Vallow/Daybell and Heaven's Gate

    The One About Cults - Vallow/Daybell and Heaven's Gate

    On this week’s episode we finally discuss cults! So I’ve been avoiding talking to Russ about cults because I am totally obsessed and he thinks they are incredibly stupid. But, we decided to dive into this one. It’s actually a 2 for 1 special! I give a summary and update on the Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell case, as well as, tell him all about one of my favorite cults to learn about... Heaven’s Gate. Moral of this story... if they tell you it’s a good idea to chop off your balls because it will help you get to heaven... you’re definitely in a cult 😅

    She's a maniac for love - Jodi Arias

    She's a maniac for love - Jodi Arias

    On this week's episode I am telling Russ the case of Jodi Arias and the brutal murder of Travis Alexander. The two of them had different ideas of what they wanted from their relationship. Travis saw this as a casual fling and Jodi saw him as the man of her dreams. Jodi's obsession drove her to go to crazy lengths to keep other women away from him. Even if that mean't getting rid of him altogether. Moral of this story... stop with the "friends with benefits" folks... someone always catches feelings and the person who does just may be a sociopath!

    Hope - The abduction and survival of Jaycee Lee Dugard

    Hope - The abduction and survival of Jaycee Lee Dugard

    On this week's episode I tell Russ the crazy and amazing story of Jaycee Lee Dugard. Jaycee was 11 years old when she was abducted in front of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California while walking to the bus stop. We usually stay away from cases about anything bad happening to kids but this case is so remarkable I just had to tell it. This woman's story proves that there is hope for the families of missing children. It also is a case that shows us once again  if you dig down deep you can survive anything. 


    Moral of this story...no matter what,  even in the darkest of places,  never loose hope!

    Sleep with one eye open folks! - Christopher Porco

    Sleep with one eye open folks! - Christopher Porco

    In this week's episode, I'm telling Russ about the tragic murder and attempted murder of Peter and Joan Porco. This crime was committed by the couples own son! How do you know when you have kids that you're going to raise a good one? ...It truly is a gamble. Is it nature or nurture? this story will show sometimes no matter how great of a parent you are, a person's evil nature still comes out. Chris Porco maintains his innocence to this day but I'm not buying it and neither did the jury at his trial. Moral of this story... "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in this world" -Agatha Christie

Edited my review

Although I didn’t like the misinformation about cruises and the wrong Natalie Holloway info, I am editing my review. I gave another episode a try and you guys have grown on me that I changed the rating to five stars. I normally hate banter but you two do it well. I love the show and will now binge all the episodes. My only gripe- I need more from you. Give me more episodes. Please? :)

Vote for Russ!

Ok, I know everyone says that Russ has to grow on you. You’re wrong, he’s just Russ. New Yorker through and through. Excellent case coverage, and freaking hysterical banter. Love me some Jess and Russ!
