    Lover, Stalker, Killer

    Lover, Stalker, Killer

    Dave Kroupa thought his relationship with Cari Farver was low-key, but Cari began sending threatening texts and emails. She even targeted Dave’s old girlfriend, Liz Goylar. The stalking persisted for years, and while the trauma drew Dave and Liz closer, authorities could never track down Cari for an arrest. But investigators tracing Cari’s digital footprint uncovered evidence that upended the case.

    The Netflix documentary Lover Stalker Killer looks into this bizarre tale of obsession and violence. Among the women in Dave’s life, who could get away with years of online harassment? And who was willing to turn a romantic rivalry into murder?

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews director Sam Hobkinson.

    The Greatest Night in Pop

    The Greatest Night in Pop

    It was an ambitious attempt to raise money for famine relief in Africa: record a single sung by the biggest names in rock, pop, R&B, and country. But putting the 1985’s “We Are The World” down on tape was easier said than done. The all-star chorus had to balance schedules, fix tech issues, and curb egos to create the legendary record. But their biggest challenge: the clock was ticking and they had only one night to make it happen.

    Netflix’s The Greatest Night in Pop features never-before-seen footage of the song’s early planning stages, including the writing sessions, and goes inside the studio where “We Are the World” was recorded. Stars like Lionel Richie, Bruce Springsteen, and Cyndi Lauper reminisce alongside musicians, engineers, and production crew about one of the most storied nights in music history.

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews director Bao Nguyen.

    American Nightmare

    American Nightmare

    When Aaron Quinn reported his girlfriend had been kidnapped in an outrageous home invasion, police suspected he was covering up a crime. Then when Denise Huskins turned up at her parents’ doorstep days later, telling an even more elaborate tale about her abduction, they accused the couple of creating a hoax - one straight out of Hollywood. But miles away a detective investigating an unrelated case discovered a single strand of hair that will tie the sensational cases together.

    In American Nightmare, Denise and Aaron tell the story of the crime they suffered, the humiliation they endured, and their quest for justice. It unravels the consequences of our cultural rush to judgment — and what happens when law enforcement decides the truth can’t possibly be true. 

    In this episode of You Can't Make This Up, host Rebecca Lavoie interviews filmmakers Felicity Morris and Bernadette Higgins.

    SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched American Nightmare yet, make sure to add it to your watch-list before listening on.

Netflix needs this podcast

If it weren’t for this podcast I wouldn’t watch these documentaries on Netflix. It is because of these interviews I watched the documentaries. Thank you to Rebecca!

Great podcast

When I heard that Rebecca was going to interview the director from the doc Greatest Night in Pop Music, I immediately rethought my decision not to watch it. I give the doc and the interview a big thumbs up.

Rebecca is a great interviewer

I am a huge fan of Rebecca’s other shows, but her interview skills really shine here as a solo host. Love the show!
