The McMartin Preschool Abuse Trial of LA – Known to be one of the longest and most expensive cases in American history.
Also set a precedent for the Satanic Panic problem of the 1980s-1990s through even now.
It's a wild and insane story and the credibility of the initial witnesses really had people divided and questioning whether or not the accused were actually guilty.

In 1968, one of many brutal massacres would occur in Vietnam at the hands of the very soldiers there to protect the South Vietnamese citizens. They attacked under the guise the village was sympathizing and hiding Vietcong soldiers. This is the story of an innocent village and the heartbreak through the years as they try to give forgiveness.

For 27 years, the disappearance of three young boys from their home in Newfoundland has perplexed not just Canada, but the world who has come to learn of their case.
Adam, Trevor, and Mitchell O'Brien were set to visit their father, Gary O'Brien during a custody agreement, but never made it back home. To this day, we don't know where they are, or what happened to them. Will we ever?

Episode 47 - Unit 731

Sunday Apr 21, 2024

Sunday Apr 21, 2024

Quite possibly the most darkest secret that Japan has as a nation. World War II is known to us for how gruesome it was and the major impact it had on the world. We know well of Nazi Germany and the horrid acts committed against the Jewish people as well as the Gypsies and other groups deemed less than, but not many people have spoken about Imperial Japan and the absolutely grotesque acts committed on not just Korea, China, and all of Asia as well as its effect on the Western World. 
This is the horrific story of Unit 731.

A night that was supposed to be a dream come true for many young people in 1970 turned into an inferno nightmare. Something as simple as making sure all the proper safety protocols were in order was overlooked, leading to one of the worst nightclub fires in history.
