S1E22: Zack and Addie

For today’s show we cover a lot of ground. I figure I can only tell the story of Zach and Addie once…so…I better do the story justice.

To finish out the year on the main feed, I’ve chosen to go out with a bang. Get comfortable. Because you’re about to hear about one of what I consider to be one of the most interesting true crime stories. A long with the intertwining history surrounding the tragedy that created a tangled web of misery and devastation.

Now, let’s get on with it.

S1E21: The Murder of Brandon Teena

The murder of Brandon Teena thrust the trans community into the forefront of public discussion. Before the early 1990s, transgender people were a silent minority within society. When the case we'll be discussing had originally received national coverage, the disregard of preferred pronouns and dead naming were not considered offensive and some of the audio clips, legal transcripts, and direct quotes used in creating this episode may reflect that. This episode will also include unedited audio of a police interview with a rape victim, which may be too distressing for some of our listeners.

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. 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.

S1E18: Mark Foster - Voodoo Murders: Part 02

In this week's episode of Obscura: A True Crime Podcast we shine a light on Mark Foster, Brent Thompson, and Greg Friesner. What does Santeria and the white Anglo-Saxon owner of a large tech company have in common? Take a seat by the fire. It's going to get dark...

S1E16: Martha Moxley - The Devil's Night Murder

In Martha Moxley's Greenwich, Connecticut neighborhood, they called the night before Halloween Mischief Night. It would be that night in 1975 that 15-year-old Martha Moxley would take her final breath and with it would begin a 43-year-long battle to bring her killer to justice.

S1E15: The Horrors of Humboldt County

Buried beneath a blanket of fog that seeps into a canopy of redwood and sequoia trees sits California's Humboldt County. Humboldt is a county that likes keeping its secrets close to the vest. Anyone who gets too close to finding out just what those secrets are is libel to be swallowed up whole, leaving nothing behind except another face on a flier. In this episode of Obscura: A True Crime podcast we cover the dark histories that surround the  county. Including Murder Mountain, the Emerald Triangle, Michael Bear Carson and Suzan Carson, Wayne Adam Ford, and more.

S1E14: Fatal Insomnia

In today’s story we take a different approach. We’ve covered a multitude of killers. Some so awful they fill me with spite just recalling their name. But what if sleep were the killer… or the lack thereof? Insomnia? Could you literally be dying for sleep?  Make sure that thermostat is low and envelop yourself in your favorite blanket. 

Today on Obscura we’re covering Fatal Insomnia.

S1E13: Bryan Eugene Sweatt - The Greenwood Murders

Sitting in a lot, surrounded by grass is an unassuming mobile home. Located in, SC, it has 4 beds 2 baths and just over 2,000 square feet. It sold in 2017 for $60,000. $15,000 less than a typical house of that size in that area. I have to ask myself, could the buyers have known the events that transpired just four years before?

In this week’s episode we cover a tragedy, one that’s on equal footing with the Ronald DeFeo Jr. killings in Amityville. This week on Obscura: A True Crime P{odcast we’re covering Bryan Eugene Sweatt.

S1E12: Michael Vance - A Week of Terror

This week on Obscura: A True Crime Podcast we cover the manhunt of Michael Dale Vance Jr.

Recently, many listeners have requested a clip-based episode. You asked. We listened.

S1E09: Gable Tostee - The Balcony

Despite all of its potential tourist activities, 26-year-old New Zealand tourist, Warriena Wright, found herself seeking companionship instead. Tinder was her app of choice. It wasn’t long after swiping through photos and profiles the app when she found what she was looking for: Gable Tostee.

The case we’re covering today dives into the world of Tinder dating, the murky world of hook up culture that surrounds tinder, and a case that is less cut and dried than usual. There are a lot of twists and turns and those in the true crime community have taken strong stances on both sides. I’ll be interested to hear the consensus of my listeners, so feel free to reach out.

S1E08: Jerad and Amanda Miller

The Dangers of Yellow Journalism

Fake News. It's a term we've heard sprout up within recent years but what exactly is it? In the past we called this yellow journalism, a type of news based on little research in order to invoke emotions, sensationalise stories, and push propaganda through misleading and eye-catching headlines with the intent to sell newspapers.

Over a hundred years later, we would witness the newspaper industry's steady decline as the ability to access news and other information through the internet became more prevalent. And while print tabloids may now be on the endangered species list, Yellow Journalism, or “Fake News” as we now call it, would see a second wave more widespread than Hearst or Pulitzer were likely to have ever imagined.

In this episode of Obscura we cover Jerad and Amanda Miller. Two people who were hell bent on dying for a cause and willing to use fake news to do so.

S1E07: Cary Stayner - A Shadow Cast Over Yosemite

In this episode we move on from Steven and cover his brother. Cary Stayner would not go on to be the net positive for society that his brother did. He would not pass on and have a funeral with 500 guests without a dry eye in the place. If Steven’s life was like a branch that grew beautifully, sprouting full but stopping short, then Cary’s branch grew long and trunk like. Twisting and disfigured. His legacy casts a shadow over Yosemite National forest.
