Comic readers across America were promised that for only $5 they could learn the ultimate fighting system, and the art of the death touch. That promise was made by Count Dante, one of the most colorful and controversial figures in martial arts history. Born John Keehan, Dante's life seems out of place in the real world, never mind his fabricated boasts.

Happy Valencrimes Day! This year's topic observes the strictest traditions, so we're talking about a series of murders in 1800s Chicago. Thomas Neill Cream used his medical practice and willingness to help those in need to prey on the desperate and disadvantaged. But his true targets may not have been the people he poisoned, but the ones he attempted to blackmail by accusing them of the murders.

Felix Yusupov

The assassination of Rasputin catapulted his unusual life into legend. So we're looking at the man that wrote the legend: his killer, Prince Felix Yusupov. A young wealthy man with no apparent interest in affairs of state, what pushed him to lead the conspiracy of assassins? And how much faith can be put in the story as he told it? The picture becomes clearer if you look at who else may have been in his home that day.

In 1982, seven people in the greater Chicago area died from taking Tylenol capsules that had been filled with cyanide. No clear evidence was found pointing to a culprit, and no motive has been determined. What remains is a story of consumer safety, and how law enforcement acts when they have no leads.

A Look at ‘20

Welcome to 2021! We bring in the year with the 900th anniversary of a shipwreck that threw England into chaos, and the 200th anniversary of a piece of culinary folk history. The White Ship sank, and people of every social station drowned the same. Tomatoes came to New Jersey through the same unexciting means as any crop, but a striking story will kep alive regardless.

Welcome back, dear ghoulish listeners, as we celebrate the season with tales of three reported haunts in detroit, Michigan. First, is a massive and active building whose tragic architect still walks the halls. Next is an abandoned hotel, former home to a serial poisoner.

Sacco & Vanzetti

On this episode Grant takes us back 100 years to a fatal robbery at a shoe factory, and the legacy of the men who had the crime pinned on them. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti came to America searching for prosperity, and found the brutality of exploitation and prejudice. The greatest weight of which fell on them when they were executed by a justice system bent on quashing an ideology, rather than seeking either justice or truth.

The Benin Bronzes

In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.
