199  The Zodiac Killer Part 1

199 The Zodiac Killer Part 1

February 28, 2021

This week we take a  look at one of the first popular serial killers that haunted San Francisco in the late 60's/early 70's. The Zodiac Killer. Zodiac would kill 5 people (although he claims to have killed 37)  and send newspapers letters and coded ciphers admitting to the crimes with "clues" on how to catch him and his supposed true identity. Most of these ciphers would be decoded within time except one, which took almost 50 years (December of 2020) to decode. Since this is a VERY dense topic and we wanted to do this topic justice we decided to split this one up, so this is part 1 where we give you the facts about the first 5, confirmed, Zodiac murders. Next week we will pick back up at the first letter sent in to the Media, the encrypted ciphers, as well as a list of suspects who may have been the Zodiac Killer...or Killers...

198 Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre

198 Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre

February 21, 2021

If you've ever heard the phrase "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid"  and ever wondered where that phrase came from, you've downloaded the right podcast! This week we take a look at what was the single most loss of American lives until 9/11.....JONESTOWN. Jonestown was a township located in the jungles of Guyana where Rev. Jim Jones and his church, The People's Temple, had relocated due to pressures from the media and defectors of the church who were going public with the many atrocities that were occurring behind closed doors.  When the entire church relocated to the jungles of Guyana, many concerned relatives were concerned their family members were being held against their will. So November 18, 1978 , Congressman Leo Ryan and a small crew of aids and media members went to Jonestown on a "fact finding" expedition. Leo Ryan and over 900 members would never make it back to the United States....listen to today to find out the whole story.

196 The PMRC and Censorship

196 The PMRC and Censorship

February 7, 2021

Once upon a time...during the "Satanic Panic" of the 80's , a group of Washington wives formed a group called the PMRC.  This stood for the Parents Music Resource Center and was headed by Tipper Gore, wife of , then senator and future Vice President Al Gore. After, walking in to her daughters room while hearing her play Prince's "Darling Nikki", Mrs Gore was SHOCKED to hear her 11 year old daughter hear the tale of Darling Nikki "masturbating to a magazine". So just like any true Karen, they complained to the manager! They had their husbands hold a Senate hearing in the summer of 1985 and asked the RFIAA (The figure head of the music industry) to start labeling music for sex, violence, drugs, alcohol , and the occult....much like the MPAA and the Movie industry. However, many artist argued that this would lead down a road to CENSORSHIP. This battle cry was headed by the three headed beast that was Frank Zappa, Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister, and .....JOHN DENVER. Ultimately there would be a compromise and most edgy content would be labeled with the infamous "PARENTAL ADVISORY " sticker we see on most album art today. However, this only became a badge of honor and some may argue made music...MORE EXPLICIT ....good job guys !

195 CIA Black Sites aka Torture Prisons

195 CIA Black Sites aka Torture Prisons

February 1, 2021

This week we look into the darker side of American history. A time right after 9/11 where the CIA was given the green light to do whatever it 'needed' to do to capture and bring to justice those who were responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Thus, Ushering in the "WAR ON TERROR". Several black sites ...or prisons...were set up around the globe to facilitate detainees who were either to believed to be terrorists or who had information that would lead to the capture of terrorists. Many were subjected to "ENHANCED INTERIGATION TECHNIQUES"....or in simpler terms... TORTURE TACTICS ..to get information that would lead to Osama Bin Laden and other top ranking members of Al Qaeda. Tactics such as water boarding, sleep deprivations, and a lot of butt stuff (like...A LOT of Butt Stuff) were used. However, a Senate committee would determine that these tactics did not result in any more information than if they were to follow less sever 'interrogation " techniques. Making them no better than the monsters they set out to capture.

 Very interesting topic with a lot of moral questions. We tried to make this one as light hearted as possible for ya too!
