EP 007 - The Women of Whitechapel and the Long Shadow of Leather Apron - London22/11/2020 Duración: 31min
This story involves murder, mystery, cryptic clues, hidden identities, and ulterior motives, all wrapped around one the best known tales in what we now call the True Crime genre. But we’ll look beyond the usual voyeuristic parlor games and shine a little light on the real people, and the real circumstances, that lead to the horrific real life killing of several women in Victorian London, as well as the strange secret that some feel the museum itself is built upon. We are headed to Whitechapel 1888 and into the streets beyond…We are headed to Whitechapel 1888 and into the streets beyond...
EP 006 - The Many Lives and Times of Alcatraz - Part 2 - San Francisco, California06/02/2020 Duración: 30min
Over 1500 prisoners made their way to Alcatraz federal Penitentiary during the 33 years it was operational. These prisoners, especially in the early days, were considered the worst of the worst, though this ranking was determined less by the heinousness of the crimes committed before incarceration than the prisoner's behavior behind bars. Those individuals who caused the most trouble at their respective home prisons were carefully evaluated and sent to Alcatraz. But make no mistake, prison behavior aside, the walls of this prison were filled with murderers and thieves. Let’s get to know some of them.
EP 005 - The Many Lives and Times of Alcatraz - Part 1 - San Francisco, California06/02/2020 Duración: 25min
The isolation is eerie and palpable, and insult is even more injurious as the glittering lights of downtown San Francisco and all of it’s wanton freedoms are within plain sight, only 1.25 miles away. It was not uncommon for prisoners to hear Christmas music and and the sound of new years eve parties traveling across the bay. And yet, Alcatraz as well be on the moon, because the likelihood of escaping the stone walls of the prison itself pales in comparison to the wet hell that awaits anyone attempting the fool's journey across the choppy, freezing blue waters of the San Francisco bay. And as far as we know, though there is some margin for debate that we shall explore, there’s no solid evidence that anyone who has attempted to escape from Alcatraz ever survived. Or did they?
EP 003 - Haw Par Villa - A Journey Through Hell - Singapore19/04/2017 Duración: 23min
“The Ten Courts Of Hell are contained in a large, snake shaped mountain of crumbling plaster, which at one point was in the form of a large dragon. Small severed heads adorn the outside, with an inscription in Chinese that I would later learn translates to “The sea of bitterness has no boundaries, turn back and you will find shore”. I suppose this was meant as a warning, a portent of what lay waiting for me inside, but I ignored the heads and ominous writing and headed toward the opening…”
EP 002 - The Strange Life and Death Of Graceland Too - Holly Springs, Mississippi19/04/2017 Duración: 29min
"Graceland Too is a garish, decaying colonial home in Holly Springs, Mississippi, the world’s most insane fire hazard of an Elvis museum, a decrepit doppelganger, alternate universe facsimile of the real thing. Every single inch of the home is covered in multiple layers of Presley memorabilia, an impenetrable strata of priceless junk, a hoarder’s heaven. It’s a handmade shrine to the King, the dream of a man who exhibited signs of utter dedication and, in retrospect, serious issues..."
EP 001 - Mr Islam Meets The Camelbot - Doha, Qatar19/04/2017 Duración: 24min
“Traveling around the Middle East, sometimes I was able to find a guy with a car who I could convince to be as excited about as I am about discovering hidden local gems, people that were up for a little adventure. Mr Islam, though polite, was not one of them. It took a little extra persuasion, and a couple extra bucks, but eventually we headed out of Doha proper in search of camelbots…”
