S1E20: Nick Stoutzenberger - The Mouth of Madness

Today…we discuss person so disgusting he triggered my gag response. This is a first for the show. This episode skated on the edge of becoming a black label episode. There’s audio from a clip I’m going to play for you later… that made it difficult to eat dinner the evening after watching it.

It’s tough to decide exactly how to tell the story of Nick Stoutzenberger( Nick Bate ). The story is a horrifying one and a complex one at that. Many of the chapters of this story feature video documentation that’s hard to place in specific moments. So, I think the philosophy going forward in telling this story will be comparable to peeling a rotting onion. Let’s peel away the less offensive bits until we get to the rotten core of the story. If you think the early part of this story is too vanilla, or dull, well… just you wait. This is an episode that will have a slow incline right into the mouth of madness.

S1E19: Scott Beierle - The Failure

The man we cover today is a putrid and hateful person. He’s a man who simultaneously complained about his loneliness but somehow, in his mind, positioned himself above those who succeeded where he failed many times over. Under this delusion, his life ultimately spiraled and the actions he would go on to take made him feel justified. In short, he was a person who was incapable of taking responsibility for his actions until the bitter end.

In this episode of Obscura: A True Crime Podcast we cover Scott Beierle.

Obscura: Black Label is here...


What exactly is Obscura: Black Label? Black Label is intended to be a raw, dark experience. There is less compromise. That means a focus on boundary pushing writing and, when applicable, censorship free audio clips. Some of this content may not be for you.

Don’t confuse this mission statement, Obscura: Black is not intended to be “edgy”. While we plan to release our riskiest coverage there, it would be hackery to force it.

The Black label, to sum it up, is intended for the more hardcore true crime fan. Those who want true crime stories with a darker bent. The point is…this is Obscura straight with no chaser. For the listeners that like a bit more gristle in the steak that is the true crime genre.

When I first started covering True Crime part of the reason why is that I have in quantifying and cataloging the darkness in the world around us. Believe it or not these stories have been a source of unrest for me. I don’t take them lightly. I obsess with true crime as a coping mechanism. But with time I’ve felt some level of restraints on this outlet with the main feed.

Enter: Obscura: Black Label.
