This conversation is a nice setup to the following topics that we discuss: When you should start a Patre…
 
This week, we dig deep on a man who seemed to be on the cusp of greatness. A hight first round draft pick in the NFL, with a record signing bonus... but it all went wrong.

This week, in Stafford, Connecticut, the disappearance of an exotic dancer leaves police with a few leads & suspects, but one particular person rises to the top of the list.

This week, we look at a man who came up under the iron curtain, only to come to North America, and become a hockey star. He was quiet, respectful, and well liked. Oh, and he also had a secret double life, where he made trips to Pakistan to check out the heroin supply. He called himself an "importer/exporter", but took the definition of that to a ne…
 
This week, in Dry Prong, Louisiana, a smell coming from a local mini storage unit causes police to uncover a dismembered & packaged body, neatly stacked inside.

In this episode, you will learn: How…
 
This week, we check out the story of a man who came from rough beginnings, to rise to the level of heavyweight champ, only to constantly do the wrong thing.

This week, we explore the life of a man who has a magic name in wrestling, but a very common name at the police station. He was groomed from birth to continue his family's legacy, and be the standard bearer of the next generation. Unfortunately for him, he was side tracked by sleeping late, doing drugs, and of course, breeding & selling cats. Not t…

To a man who has some odd beliefs when it comes to pyramids, moun…

Once the suspect becomes obvious, things really get interest…

This week, we bring you a story of a legacy, unlimited potential, and massive screw ups. His family was an athletic legacy in his town, putting plenty of pressure on him to fulfill his destiny. And he did... well, until he did such a huge amount of drugs that no basketball team would touch him, and he ended up in a crashed car, with a heroin needle…
 
This week, in Chickasha, Oklahoma, a twisted & cruel plot emerges after a body is found, brutalized, and chained to concrete blocks, in the river. Part revenge, part blood thirsty attack, this murder is nothing short of one for the ages.

"Should I put my podcast up on YouTube? I hear it's great for getting discovered." I frequently hear this comment from podcasters who are looking to gain more listeners to their podcast. But truth be told, posting a podcast up to YouTube is more than just grabbing the audio file, attaching podcast cover art and letting your podcast play underneath …
 
This week, we have a long & winding story about a man who is still very famous, and has used that fame to every advantage. He came from the toughest of circumstances to somehow become a Hall of Fame NFL player. He also did a bunch of cocaine, and never met 4 or 5 strippers that he didn't like. He was a jerk, and embraced it. But would that keep him…

Today I speak with Account Executive for Hubbard Broadcasting-Phoenix, Steve Moynihan. Steve has extensive experience in radio industry sales since the early 2000s and also a digital media consu…
 
This week, we check a criminal with a need for speed. From race cars, at least, but his life off the track is way crazier than driving 200 mph, in a circle. His scams & schemes are honestly mind boggling, and netted him proceeds in the billions of dollars, which helped him finance his race team, and an extravagant lifestyle, that puts most of even …
