In this episode, Alaina resurrects one of her old series: looking at the live-action feature films of the Walt Disney studio. Following the deaths of the studio's founding brothers, and the beginning of a long period of rocky financials, Disney's film output was, well, boring and bad. We look over their movies from 1970-1975 to point out the few bright spots, place people and trends into their contexts, and bring up the much better work these artists were capable of.

Hathaway There

In less than two weeks, Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway will reach a global streaming audience. A brand-new adaptation of a 30 year old novel from a 40 year old franchise with a reputation for dense lore can be an intimidating, so we're here to get through what you'll probably want to know before watching. No promises though.

Happy anniversary! To celebrate a year of trapped travel, we're covering a place we've both been in the before times, and fulfilling one of our top listener requests to boot. Medieval Times Dinner Tournament is famous for its pick-and-choose approach to historical "accuracy", and that one Jim Carrey movie. Let's see what experience we can share from its website, and what insights we glean from the reviews.

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. Last is now a vacant lot, but was once the headquarters of an occult prophet who died at the hands of an unknown axe murderer.
