The 700-mile Away View of 9/11

I think of the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 a little bit like our nation’s largest earthquake. It’s clear that 1 World Trade Center was the epicenter and the greatest loss and damage occurred in the surrounding neighborhood, but the city of New York as a …

Motivated By…

Murders, shitty police investigators, garbage politicians, and all that is macabre. As a citizen in America, especially one like me who chose to get into the world of true crime podcasting, it can be all too easy to let your mind be absorbed by such topics. And even if you’re not a true crime podcaster, …

Unfortunate Case Study Highlights Ineptitude of Indiana Investigators

Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to state that there are many missing people out there who, along with their families, deserve effort and justice, especially the two women I’ll be discussing today, Suzanne Morphew and Chenell “Renee” Gilbert. A lot of people disagree with my opinion that the antiquated …
