  • Some say professional wrestling is fake--just a bunch of ‘roided out maniacs in tights acting out a play. They’re not totally wrong. While professional wrestling is scripted with story lines and predetermined winners and losers, the level of athleticism and commitment to the art is very real. Also, very real are the injuries sustained and the cumulative effects of years of head trauma, and concussions, which is the same with professional football players and boxers. These head injuries can lead to dangerous personality disorders and violence. Chris Benoit is a prime example of this. Join Kevin, Amy, and our good friend Mason, as we dish out the trash.

  • 300 Center Street in Findlay, Ohio was a house of horrors. Many people were in and out of there, but no tenant was as innocent or tragic as Vera Jo Reigle. Cheri Brooks, AKA Sugar Babe, was the ring-leader of the “Brooks Clan,” a trashy “Crip” family of misfits who wreaked havoc in this small town. Referred to as “Frequent Fliers” by 9-11 and the local police, it seems that many of the Brooks’ tragedies and maladies could have been avoided. Kevin and Amy watched the documentary Goodnight Sugar Babe so that you maybe don’t have to. It’s a sad, gross, heart-breaking story.

  • 3096 days is about 8.5 years. Think about what you did from the time you were 10-18. Now, think about spending those precious adolescent years forced in a damp, dark, underground, cement basement dungeon--to only be brought up above ground to be a slave to a crazy, paranoid man. This was Natascha’s reality for 3096 days. Amy and Kevin tell the first part of this crazy story this week. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.

  • Unsolved cases haunt us all, but unsolved mass murders are even more mystifying and rare--especially when there is an apparent treasure-trove of evidence at hand. It’s infuriating and maddening.

    This case has haunted Amy for years, so with the help of Kevin and some great source material, the True Crime Dumpster dives into this sad and seemingly solvable case. Let 2021 be the year of solving all the cold cases!

    Also, our apologies for switching up Rhoda’s name (we sometimes referred to her as Rhonda). She is one of the true heroes of this story, so we are sincerely sorry for any name mix-up.

  • It’s Friday the 13th again, so we are coming back to you this week with a crazy tale that happened on June 13, 1980.

  • It doesn't get much worst than Gary Heidnik--a true garbage person who tortured, raped, abused, and killed women. He joins the list of a whole lot of Bad Garys we've talked about since the beginning of our podcast.

    He is "famously" known for being part of the inspiration for the character of Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs which, if you've seen the movie, is not a good thing.

  • Family Annihilators--unfortunately, it’s a tale as old as time. However, because of a Chris Watts documentary, there is renewed interest around this criminal phenomenon. 95% of family annihilators (that is, people who kill their families) are men/boys.

    Learn about the many factors and about the research that goes into trying to figure out these monsters. We talk a little about Chris Watts, but our real goal is to help capture another fugitive off the FBI Top Ten Most Wanted List: Robert William Fisher. He’s been on the run since April 10, 2001. Join us this week as we hope to take this human garbage out to the curb.

  • Yaser and Patricia Said had 2 beautiful, talented, bright daughters--Amina and Sarah. They also had a son, Islam. After years of abuse and terror, Yaser executed his daughters in cold blood. The FBI dubbed it an “honor killing,” and he was put on the FBI Top 10 Most Wanted list after the release of the documentary The Price of Honor. Yaser was on the run for over 12 years--that is, until August 26, 2020. Now, Islam, Yassein, and Yaser are all in police custody.

    We covered this case in Episode #40, but we had the opportunity to talk with Xoel Pamos, who was one of the makes of the film The Price of Honor, and Ruth Trotter, Amina’s boyfriend’s mother (they're both much more than that, but this is supposed to be a summary).

    Follow Xoel and the film on Twitter: @tpohfilm

    Follow Ruth on Twitter: @rmtpink.

    You can also watch The Price of Honor on many streaming platforms including Amazon Prime.

    Also, please like the Facebook page, “The Price of Honor” to see related articles, pictures, and updates. We can’t wait for the next film! Hopefully, Xoel has the opportunity to call Yaser a "motherfucker" to his face. We can only hope.
