The Holocaust is possibly the most infamous genocide in history – and through it all, one man, in particular, stood out for his brutality. His sadistic actions, and depraved “medical experiments” during the Holocaust earned him the name “Angel of Death”, and cemented his legacy as one of the most evil men of the 20th century. This is the story of Josef Mengele. Rolf Mengele Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFQaDSv1IKg

Amazon Music Presents SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow

11/11/2022
For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. Then, in 2019,...

ShortHand: The European Witch Craze – Part 1

11/1/2022
For over a thousand years, witches were believed to be local soothsayers who used their powers for everyday charms and spells. But in the 16th and 17th centuries, Europe was suddenly gripped by a new idea: that witches were part of an organised demonic network, plotting with the devil himself to cloud the whole world in evil. And to stop the armies of darkness, more than 200,000 people were executed across Europe for the crime of witchcraft. In the first half of our two-parter on...

ShortHand: Why Did Anyone Believe in Elizabeth Holmes?

10/18/2022
Elizabeth Holmes and her startup, Theranos, are now infamous. With millions of lives put at risk, and hundreds of millions of dollars flushed down the toilet, they serve as the ultimate cautionary tale of “fake it till you make it” gone wrong.

Described as The Truman Show meets Se7en, the story follows a rogue neuropathologist as he attempts to find a cure for evil, using a condemned serial killer as his guinea pig. Initially met with a lukewarm response, the novel garnered international attention in 2015 after Leibel seemed to use its most violent scenes to commit what's been described as...
