  • In this rerelease of one of our favourite episodes, we sat down with Hassan Ali from The Nerd Alternative to discuss the Ahool. The Ahool is a winged cryptid thought to exist in Indonesia. It was first reported by Dr. Ernest Bartels in 1925 and it has been claimed that it lives in the deepest parts of the jungles of Java. Legend says the Ahool resembles a fanged flying primate, with dark leathery wings, and razor-sharp fangs and talons.

    Is the massive ape-like flying creature the stuff of legends, or is it rooted in reality? Is the Ahool a distant cousin of the now-extinct gigantic blood-sucking Vampire bat, a relative of the extinct pterodactyl, or even more intimidating, is it the inspiration for ancient Mesoamerican mythology?

  • In early November 1872, the Mary Celeste sailed from New York City to Genoa, Italy. Onboard were its Captain, Benjamin Briggs, his wife, and young daughter, and a small crew. Just shy of one month later, the ship would be found, essentially sailing itself, with no passengers on board. When boarded the Mary Celeste was found in perfect order, the crewmen leaving behind the majority of their gear, neatly packed away. In this Slash 'N Cast Halloween Convention Special we look into the mystery of the Mary Celeste.

This apparent multi-level marketing company was a wolf in sheep's clothing. After recruiting and rubbing elbows with many Hollywood elites, politicians, and even His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, NXIVM leader Keith Raniere developed a secret sorority sex slaves

  • The legend of Cropsey is one rooted in mystery and speculation. This folktale took on a larger-than-life personality with the release of the 1981 Slasher-Horror film, The Burning. In the film teenagers pull a prank on the camp's caretaker, Cropsy, leaving him horribly disfigured and out for vengeance, as he returns to take out the teens one by one. 

    When several children begin disappearing from Staten Island, New York, in the '70s and '80s, rumours of Cropsey’s return haunted the area. Both in 1988 and in 2004, the same man was convicted in the related children abduction cases. Is this man the real Staten Island maniacal serial killer known as Cropsey, or is he simply a victim of a biased media wash?

    In this episode, we’ll dive into the true story of Andre Rand, and the legend of Staten Island’s CROPSEY.

    Note: Some of the terminology used in the audio clips featured in this episode are considered outdated and offensive, at the time (1965/1972), this was not the case, and these clips are historically significant in how they impacted the way our society now views those with mental disabilities.

  • Piercing red eyes, seemingly floating in the darkness. As if out of thin air, a tall bipedal figure emerges from the shadows. In a flash, a massive pair of wings unfurl, filling the night sky. In today’s episode we discuss Point Pleasant, West Virginia’s Mothman.

    We’ll discuss earlier Mothman sightings, we’ll look at an entity known as Indrid Cold, and finally we’ll finish the episode with the collapse of the Silver Bridge.

  • Ricky Rodriguez was deprived of a childhood, robbed of his innocence, and indoctrinated from birth into a cult that focused on “free love,” and encouraged adult-child sexual relationships. Crowned the cult's "Messiah," raised to be the future leader of the cult, sexually abused, and forced, from birth, to have continuous sex with multiple women, and young girls in the cult.

    This is a story of sexual abuse, brainwashing, pain, and murder. This is the story of Ricky Rodriguez, the prophecized prince of the apocalypse.

    **NOTE**

    In my research the date of the murder-suicide that Ricky committed was listed as January 2004, that is incorrect. The album he's listening to in the background of his last video confession, Sum 41's "Chuck," was released in October 2005. This would place the murder-suicide in January 2005, not 2004.

  • In today’s episode, we discuss the harrowing tale of three sisters separated and abused at the hands of Children of God cult members. We’ll take a deep look at the book Not Without My Sister: The True Story of Three Girls Violated and Betrayed by Those They Trusted. This book is written by three survivors of the cult, Celeste Jones, Kristina Jones, and Juliana Buhring.

    In addition, we discuss a few of the tactics the Children of God members used at Teen Training Camps such as; food and sleep deprivation, beatings, exorcisms, enforced silence, and public humiliation. We also touch on one of the military communes, the “Jumbo” which was a maze-like structure in a giant compound, surrounded by walls at least ten to fifteen feet high, with armed guards patrolling the wall.

  • This episode sees us return to the Children of God cult. Continuing from episode 13, we finish our discussion with an update on Vivian Shillander. We also dive into bridal theology, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and the cult's history with ”Loving Jesus,” a sexual mystical marriage with Jesus Christ. We’ll go into detail about the church’s various phrases to say to Jesus while having sex with him.

    Finally, we close off the episode focussing on some famous faces; celebrities that grew up inside the cult, or those who joined as adults. Among these celebrities are Rose McGowan, Christopher Owens, as well as River, and Joaquin Phoenix.

  • In this episode, we sat down with Hassan Ali from The Nerd Alternative to discuss the Ahool. The Ahool is a winged cryptid thought to exist in Indonesia. It was first reported by Dr. Ernest Bartels in 1925 and it has been claimed that it lives in the deepest parts of the jungles of Java. Legend says the Ahool resembles a fanged flying primate, with dark leathery wings, and razor-sharp fangs and talons.

    Is the massive ape-like flying creature the stuff of legends, or is it rooted in reality? Is the Ahool a distant cousin of the now-extinct gigantic blood-sucking Vampire bat, a relative of the extinct pterodactyl, or even more intimidating, is it the inspiration for ancient Mesoamerican mythology?

  • In today’s episode, we continue our discussion on the religious sex cult, The Children of God. We’ll look at the case study "Lustful Prophet: A Psychosexual Historical Study of the Children of God's Leader, David Berg." We also discuss several families within the cult that had their lives changed forever. Merry Berg, Amy Bril, Vivian Shillander, and the Padilla family are a few ex-members that we focus on in this episode. With rampant sexual and child sexual assault, a distrust of medical science, and religious prostitution, few ex-members escaped unscathed.

    Listen for the history, stay for David Berg's poetry. 

    For full context: the recording heard at the beginning of the episode is an audio excerpt from a 1981 video created and sent to David Berg and Karen Zerby. In this video, a man describes how his younger children have both “shared” sexually with their stepmother. Names have been censored to protect their identities.

  • In the second episode of our series on The Children of God cult, we continue our discussion on the establishment of the cult. We look at David Berg's life in seclusion, and we take a deep dive into his written 'scripture,' the "Mo Letters." 

    These Mo Letters would lead the cult down a dangerous path of sexual abuse, child neglect, and child sexual assault.  We'll also discuss "Flirty Fishing," a controversial practice of evangelical proselytizing through sex. Finally, we look at how David used Biblical scripture to justify incest, sexual assault, and "child brides."

  • In the first part of our series on The Children of God cult, we discuss the cult founder David Berg and the origins of the cult. You’ll hear about David’s multiple names, his weird masturbation stories, his early childhood, and how he brought incest and pedophilia into his family, and later into the cult as well.
