Some say the Jean Harlow house where she lived with her husband Paul Bern is one of the most haunted homes in America. The house certainly saw its fair share of tragedy and deaths which we’ll cover in this episode. You might be shocked to find out the house even has a connection to the Manson family!

    Episode 273: The Winchester Mystery House (Separating Fact From Fiction)

    1:04:21

    The Winchester Mystery House is a tale that’s been told countless times. The house is featured on tons and tons of Top 10 haunted lists and over the years the house has become the focal point of the lore. We felt it was really important to tell the story not only of the house but of the woman who created it: Sarah Pardee Winchester. There were countless details that we didn’t realize about her or the house and through our research, we really began tearing back the layers of this story! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Today, we chat with two people who everyone deserves to know and love, Spencer Henry and Madison Reyes. We feel so lucky to have these two beautiful Luna moths on our network and their show OBITCHUARY is unlike anything you have ever allowed into your ear holes. Not only will you get scathing, hilarious and sometimes really dark obituaries, but you will also get some bizarre history and true crime tidbits along the way. They are truly delightful and you will want them to be your best friends too. We chatted about how expensive it is to tell someone you hate them in death, the cosmic way they became besties and so much more. Come on in, friends. The water is truly hilarious.

    Episode 270: Jodi Arias

    1:08:22

    Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander met in September of 2006 and from day one they were hooked on each other. Their relationship started getting toxic when Jodi became overly possessive and started listening in on Travis’s conversations when he was unaware. Travis broke things off with Jodi but the two of them never really stopped seeing each other, even when Jodi’s toxic behaviour was in full bloom. Unfortunately things escalated in June 2008 and Jodi murdered Travis in his own home. The details involved in this case are truly mind boggling.  As always, thank you to our sponsors: Pretty Litter: Do what I did and make the switch TODAY by visiting PrettyLitter.com and use promo code morbid for 20% off your first order Stamps.com: Save time and money with Stamps.com & with our promo code, MORBID, you get a special offer that includes a 4-week trial PLUS free postage and a digital scale  Daily Harvest: Go to DAILYHARVEST.com/morbid to get up to forty dollars off your first box!

    Episode 268: The Railroad Killer

    1:17:47

    As promised, we are talking today about the serial killer from Episode 266. In that episode, we focused on the only survivor of his crimes, Holly Dunn. Today, we take a walk through all of his crimes.  Throughout the 80's and 90's, Angel Maturino Resendiz was one of the most brutal killers the United States had ever seen. Known by the media as the Railroad Killer, he stalked victims nears railroad tracks before brutally butchering them either next to the tracks or in their own homes. His mode of operation involved sexual assault and a gruesome amount of overkill. He moved freely between his home in Mexico and the States before finally being caught through fingerprints and SNA. After a reign of terror that was as prolific as it was terrorizing, he was fortunately coerced into turning himself into authorities in 1999.
