64 - Diane Downs

5/13/2019
More
After a weekend of pampering our moms, we're gonna talk about one of the worst mothers in the world, Diane Downs. On a May night in 1983, Downs stopped her car on a secluded Oregon road, took a gun out of the trunk, and shot her three children. Believe it or not, that's not the craziest detail of the case.

61 - The Mothman

4/29/2019
More
Since he was first spotted in 1966, the Mothman has almost become something of a town mascot for Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Whether you think he's a harbinger of death or delivering warnings for impending disasters, this cryptid's history is shrouded in mystery. He also seems to be in the top 5 most merchandized cryptid ever.

60 - Robert Berdella

4/22/2019
More
Also known as "The Kansas City Butcher" and "The Collector", Robert Berdella kidnapped, raped, and viciously tortured at least six men between 1984-1987. With crimes on the same level as more infamous killers such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Albert Fish, this episode definitely deserves a trigger warning for descriptions of graphic torture. Strap in and get ready for another super bummer episode. Email: crimeculturepod@gmail.com Website: crimeculturepodcast.tumblr.com Instagram:...

In April 1981, Sue Sharp, two of her children, and one of their friends were brutally murdered in their cabin surrounded by close neighbors. The details of the case grow stranger the more you hear about it and serve as the premise for a terrifying horror movie.

58 - Dorángel Vargas

4/8/2019
More
With names like "El Comegente" (The People Eater)and "The Hannibal Lecter of The Andes", we knew we had to research the story of Dorángel Vargas (thanks to our friend Luis for the suggestion!) Vargas was a homeless man living in a park in San Cristobal, Venezuela who would hunt and eat men who passed by. Although his name is not as well known here in the States, he has still inspired some well known pop culture! Email: crimeculturepod@gmail.com Website: crimeculturepodcast.tumblr.com...

56 - Gypsy Rose Blanchard

3/25/2019
More
Kaitlin has been waiting for this one since the beginning! The tragic story of Gypsy Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard (you decide who it's tragic for) is a wild ride, to say the least. Gypsy grew up having every ailment under the sun and her loving mother Dee Dee took care of her every need... or did she? With so many twists and turns, it's no wonder this story was adapted into the Hulu series "The Act". Email: crimeculturepod@gmail.com Website: crimeculturepodcast.tumblr.com Instagram:...

More
In the 1960's, Phil Spector was a prominent figure in the music scene. From developing the Wall of Sound to producing tracks for legends like John Lennon, the Righteous Brothers, and the Ronettes, Spector was on top of his game. All of that changed in 2003 when actress Lana Clarkson was found dead from a bullet wound in Spector's home.
