Female Persuasion: Women and Cults with Rebekah Sebastian and Tori Telfer
Today's episode is from a LIVE event last October at Caveat in New York City. Co-hosted with the lovely and talented Tori Telfer, we delved into the feminine side of cults, with some cult trivia for good measure! If you just want to hear my spiel on NXIVM skip to about 3o minutes in and you will hear me breakdown what I know then about the women leadership who helped Keith Raniere run the operation. I know so much more one year later, but my enthusiasm for the subject has not waned since then as you will hear in my voice. We are officially concluded our series on cults, but there are still a few conversations I might be having in light of recent events regarding Keith Raniere. I will release those as bonus content as they are ready, but next week we start a new series: TRUE CRIME PODCASTERS, and I talked to some GOOD ones! Make sure you are subscribed so you don't miss an episode! DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation, is a weekly true crime podcast, hosted by Rebekah Sebastian.

Frank Lyford | Heaven's Gate Cult Survivor
It is my pleasure to introduce you to my guest, Frank Lyford. Frank spent 18 years in the Heaven's Gate cult, following the teachings of Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. Frank saw red flags along the way, but it took nearly two decades for these warnings to become loud enough for him to know if was time to go. And once he knew, we left. What happens after is a long journey of reorienting and healing from that experience. Frank has done extensive recovery work to help get to a place of self-love and acceptance. He now coaches others to help them find this intuition and ability within themselves. Frank is also featured in the People Investigates Cults documentary,  Episode 3 Heaven's Gate. Other sources I read while researching and to help write the intro: RollingStone Magazine, The New York Times, and Wikipedia. Make sure you are subscribed so you don't miss an episode- next week is the final in our series on CULTS.

Dr. Janja Lalich | Cult Expert, Sociologist, Author
Another Wednesday, another new DIE-ALOGUE episode about cults. We are joined today by a wonderful professor, author, expert and sociologist, Dr. Janja Lalich. Dr. Lalich unwittingly joined a political cult in the 1970's and spent over 10 years crushed by the group's grip. She finally broke free and set about the long road to recovery. Once healed, she wanted to dedicate her professional energy to education around cults and did so as a professor, a consultant, and still consults now, even when she could comfortably retire. She is constantly called upon to help family members or former cult members, including Catherine and India Oxenberg, as seen on HBO's The Vow. Dr. Lalich helps us understand the concept of "bounded choice," and why she prefers that term over brainwashing. You can find a book she wrote (one of many!) on the subject here, as well as her website which is a wonderful resource.  I am grateful for her time as she is doing interviews all the time these days- not a coincidence as we discuss! Find out why the pandemic is the perfect breeding ground for cults and what she thinks about Q Anon.

Rick Alan Ross | Cult Expert, Part 2
Welcome back to our kick off cult episode - PART TWO. I spoke with a leading expert in the world of cults, Rick Alan Ross. Does his name sound familiar? He is often called up to speak about cults in the media and was most recently seen on HBO’s The Vow. In this episode you hear all about Rick's 14 year legal battle with Keith Raniere and NXIVM and just how dangerous a man he really is when a file on the organization kept on Rick was exposed. And wait until you hear what - or who (?) is keeping him up at night. Rick Alan is the author of CULTS Inside Out, and wow, what a resource. It has just about every cult you can name and many you can’t inside, and also has a dedicated section to NXIVM - Rick Alan Ross is the forefront of what is happening with cults. He is also the founder and Executive Director of the Cult Education Institute. I am grateful for his time, expertise and willingness to share his vast knowledge about cults with us. We touch on the history of cults, what makes a cult leader, the makings of a cult, and we get deep into Q anon and NXIVM - both modern day cult ( or at least extremist thinking for Q anon). This episode is timely and relevant as Rick predicts more people than ever will be susceptible to cults during this pandemic and in the age of (mis)information.

Jeff Deskovic | Exonoree + Founder of The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice
This is PART 2 of my conversation with Jeff. Go back to Part 1 if you didn't listen. We left off when Jeff shared how his exoneration happened and how he was released with nothing. Learn how unprepared for life on the outside he was, and what he accomplished in spite of it. He is a survivor, a hero, and now a legal advocate for those still behind bars fighting for their innocence and freedom. Jeff is an inspiration!

Jeff Deskovic | Exonoree + Founder The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice
It was an honor to interview today's guest, Jeff Deskovic. He is many things - an advocate, a lawyer, a business owner, a free man, but for 16 years, he was an inmate at a maximum security mens prison. His story is harrowing and humanizes the topic of wrongful convictions. I am astounded at his resilience and blown away by his desire to help other people who find themselves serving unjust sentences. The fact that he made his way through law school and established a foundation is even more impressive when you learn he was convicted at just 16 years old.  Jeff is am extraordinary person doing important work. Please explore the links below and consider ways you can help Jeff in his mission, even if it's only through sharing among your network. Brace yourself for Part 1 of Jeff's story. Part 2 comes out next week, make sure you are subscribed so you don't miss it.

Maggie Freleng | Unjust & Unsolved Podcast
Welcome, Maggie Freleng! Maggie has been on my list to interview for a while, and the launch of her new podcast from the Obsessed Network,  Unjust & Unsolved, seemed like the perfect time to do so. Maggie lets us in on her reluctant foray into the true crime world, and how her background in journalism prepared her to advocate for stories she felt needed amplifying.  Our JUSTICE/INJUSTICE conversation heats up as Maggie shares the incredible stories from those inside who are fighting to overturn their convictions. We discuss actual innocence, our sentencing policies, and how we're holding up during quarantine in New York City!

We are back! Welcome to Season 2 of DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation!

Together, they now practice law  together.

Matthew Horace | Author "The Black and the Blue."
If you are FOR changing what police work in the Unites States looks like, and want to bring equality to our system, but ALSO want to remain supportive of law enforcement, Matthew Horace has ideas. He lays out the ways and reasons all of this is not only possible, but necessary. I can't think of a better interview to close out Season 1 - yes, DIE-ALOGUE is taking a brief hiatus to prepare for a new Season in September, more on that below! First, you need to listen to my conversation with Matthew in which we discuss police reform, BLM, defunding the police, Ferguson, the murders of George Floyd and Rashard Brooks, and more. Then you must go get his book so you can learn even more about law enforcement in our country, from a man who lived it for 30 years, AND his dozens of interview subjects - men and women in blue - all over the country, who also serve and protect.  His book is wonderful and combines his own story about becoming a cop, the racism he experienced in and outside of the department, and interviews with other officers and agencies who share their stories as well. Understanding policing history is critical as we look to make changes for the future. You can find his book here. Learn more about Matthew here. And follow him on social media: FB Instagram Twitter  Note: Putting a link to The Breathe Bill which was just proposed at the time of our interview and is further along now. You can learn about it here. I ( Rebekah) want to say THANK YOU FOR LISTENING. I've put out new episodes 56 weeks in a row and it has been incredible. I am so grateful to you the listeners, and my incredible guests. But Mama needs a break to prepare for Season 2.  I will be re-releasing some oldie but goodie episodes that you may have missed while I am gone! If you have ideas for guests for Season 2, message me on FB, IG, or Twitter, or email me: rebekah@yellowtapetruecrime.com  See you in Sept!

Recognize this guy? He was my guest on Episode 19, where we explored his amazing work on the CBC podcast, UNCOVER: Escaping NXIVM! That's right, it's Josh Bloch - my first returning guest - this time to discuss his latest work, the UCP Audio podcast, The Lost Kids, which focuses on the troubled teen industry-  and guess what? It has possible roots to a bizarre cult - I am seeing a theme here. Josh is a talented journalist and I love how he thinks and how he reports his findings. If you haven't already, be sure to check out The Lost Kids and let me know what you think. Also, if you want to watch the live event I did with with Tori Telfer ( my 1st guest!) about NXIVM and other cults, you can watch it here.

Charlotte Lang | FBI Agent, NETFLIX Fear City
When I watched Fear City - the new three part docu-series about the mafia in 1980’s New York, I immediately zeroed in on FBI agent Charlotte Lang. I wanted more of her story. And lucky me, I got it! Now retired, Charlotte shares her not so conventional path to the FBI (she answered a newspaper ad after working sales for IMB), and some mob related stories that you won’t see on Fear City ( SHE HAD LUNCH NEXT TO FAT TONY AND SPIED ON HIM). Come for the mafia stories, stay to hear what it was like to be one of a handful of Female agents at the bureau.  I think you are going to love her and this doc as much as I did.

Christian Barth | True Crime Author
Christian Barth is an author and attorney living in Connecticut, but hails from the lovely Garden State - New Jersey. His most recent book, The Garden State Parkway murders, is about about the unsolved murders of Susan Davis and Elizabeth Perry, which occurred on Memorial Day Weekend, 1969in Ocean City, NJ. Christian recalls his parents discussing this case while driving along the very same highway where their bodies were discovered. His curiosity around the case combined to his deep interest in the American era of the late 1960's inspired him to write this book which ended up being a nine year long journey. You will understand why when you hear our conversation. Among the many suspects in this case, Ted Bundy and Gerald Stano make an appearance, with Bundy's possible involvement being controversial to some. Though not a known serial killer, one suspect ended up being an active member of the Aryan Republican Army, and known white supremacist. This book is so rich in both context and case details, that I hope it wakes the memory of anyone still alive that might have information about the case.  You can find more about Christian and his work here. You can find The Garden State Parkway Murders and his first book, The Origins of Infamy, here.  Learn more about Christian and find him on social via his website. Looking to support DIE-ALOGUE?

Cheyna Roth | Investigative Journalist and True Crime author
Cheyna Roth is an investigative journalist and true crime author, but her career began as a lawyer in the prosecutors office. Hear all about what inspired the change, and most importantly, what led to her 1st book ( JUST LAUNCHED YESTERDAY), COLD CASES: A True Crime Collection. Cheyna and I had a great chat about all aspects of true crime, including which victims we care about and why. We spend sometime discussing the Freeway Phantom Killings and why the victims - all young women of color, received far less media coverage than their white victim counterparts. The case remains unsolved and the 6 families have not received closure or justice. As a continuation of the DIE-ALOGUE Summer Reading Series, we are giving away a signed copy of her book to a lucky listener!

Benjamin Taylor | Civil Rights Attorney
Today's episode will give us a legal refresher on topics that are relevant to current events. Benjamin Taylor, partner at Taylor Gomez Law brings kindness, wisdom and action to today's conversation! I enjoyed my time with Benjamin and hearing how his career pivot ( from finance to law) led him to advocating for clients who's rights had been violated. We talk a lot about definitions of terms we are hearing a lot right now: civil rights violation vs. hate crime, defunding police vs. police reform. Best of all, Benjamin leaves us with ACTIONS we can take to affect change. I am grateful for Ben sharing his time and expertise. Learn more about his law practice here and follow him on twitter here.

Additionally, they host a portfolio of podcasts hosted by other creators ( some you will recognize as past DIE-ALOGUE guests) that you should also check out. AND, if you still have time in your schedule, check out their documentary Finding Maura Murray on Amazon Prime, and their Oxygen special, The Disappearance of Maura Murray. I have to mention that these two are so passionate about missing person and cold cases, pretty much all that they do stems from a genuine desire to bring justice to families of victims. They both sit on the board of Private Investigations For the Missing — a non-profit created by Bruce Mailtlin. Finally, Listen for the big announcement at the end of this episode to learn what’s new with DIE-ALOGUE! Thank you Tim and Lance for killing the small talk and making me laugh and part of the family.

Andre Matthews | Bruh Issa Murder
Say hello to my lovely guest and new friend, Andre Matthews: creator and host of 'Bruh Issa Murder.' We get to the meaning and story behind that title straight out the gate, but essentially, it's a statement of the obvious that so many of us have experienced while watching a story about a possible accident or maybe a murder... bruh, issa murder.  Andre shares how he's a voracious true crime consumer, but failed to see the cases and stories featuring of people of color and LGBTQ folks. He set out to shine a light on these cases, with some dumb crimes and creepy pasta thrown in for good measure. Andres also shares a victim's story AND a murder case that I have NEVER heard of that made me wanting to know more. I know you will find Andre to be as amazing as I did, and you should check out his show if you haven't already. In addition to stories around lesser known cases, you will also hear current event break downs, and be introduced to new music artists. Catch his show here or wherever you listen to podcasts! He is on social as well: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Andre is also on GetVokl on TRUE CRIME THURSDAYS! I am too. Come join our livestreams: I am on at 7pm EST, and Andre is on at 10pm EST. A note about our conversation: I misspoke and said The Trans Doe Project, but I was actually referring the Trans Doe Task Force- check out the work they do. FUN UPDATE!

Mark McClish | Statement Analysis
Truth and Lies - both are critical elements in discerning what happened in most true crime cases. I speak with an interview expert, Mark McClish, who in addition to a 26 year in federal law enforcement, developed a technique called Statement Analysis, which helps him ascertain if a  person’s statements - written or oral - are truthful. We discuss truthfulness at large and how humans generally do not want to lie. You will  learn why “never”  is a problematic word, and I ask him about one of the principles from his book: BELIEVE WHAT PEOPLE TELL YOU. We unpack this for a bit. While we touch on several high profile cases and statements made by related individuals, I ask him specifically about a case that he used as an example in his book, “I Know You are Lying.” the statement is a 1993 video interview by Michael Jackson in response to allegations of molesting a child. I am including a link to the interview here. It will give context and might be helpful as we talk about some of those words. You can learn more about Mark’s work and books on his website:http://statementanalysis.com/ -------------------- In today’s show, you will also hear a brief message at the top about how I am processing and seeking to understand the conversation around race and justice in our country. I want this to be an ongoing conversation, so please feel free to get in touch with me. There are many ways!

Podcast Blackout | Podcasters for Justice | BLACK LIVES MATTER
In lieu of a new episode today, I am participating in a podcast blackout and Podcasters for Justice as a way to peacefully protest the racism we continue to witness and experience every day in America. I am enraged and heartbroken over the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. I know this list is tragically incomplete. The following statement was created by Danielle Des and Tangia Al-awaji Estrada, both voices in the WOC Podcaster Community: We are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and many many others at the hands of police. This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception and we are committed to standing against racism in all its forms. We believe that to be silent is to be complicit. We believe that Black lives matter. We believe that Black lives are more important than property. We believe that we have a responsibility to use our platforms to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we are witness to it. In creating digital media we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage our audiences to be educated, engaged, and to take action.

Jim Rathman | Real Life Real Crime Podcast
Detective?CHECK. Bronze Star Army Vet? CHECK. Former Secret Service Agent? CHECK. Hit Podcast host? CHECK. Is there anything today's guest can't do?!? Say hello to Jim Rathman, the other half of Real Life Real Crime; we had his other half, Woody Overton on episode 33.  Jim walks me through his career and how he's happily landed where he is, investigating cold cases that desperately need attention. Jim and Woody balance their vast talents and skillsets to bring answers and closure ( if that's even possible) to families of victims. Jim shares a lot about the Courtney Coco case which the two of them were instrumental in helping crack,  though charges still have not been brought. Listen to find out why. Jim has stayed busy during Quarantine focusing on a missing persons case that you just might have heard of... does the name Don Lewis mean anything to you? #tigerking  Kirk write a three part series on his experience aptly titled "Trapped with Ms. Arias." You can find those as well as books on weight loss and wellness here. Keep up with Jim on social and be sure to check out Real Life Real Crime where Jim and Woody share real cases they worked from their careers and they tackle important issues like trauma and suicide within law enforcement.

Kirk Nurmi | Defense Attorney for Jodi Arias, Survivor + Author
I am so glad I had this conversation. I was apprehensive because I wasn't sure if I agreed with a lawyer publishing a tell all memoir about a client, but I let Kirk tell his story and it became clear that staying silent was not an option. His life was completely taken over by the case, the trials, and by Ms. Arias herself. In this episode, Kirk shares what that was like, how it impacted him, and how he came to the other side. Don't want to spoil anything, but there is light on the other side, and Kirk is doing great. Talking with him made me deeply empathetic toward him and also brought up incredibly troubling aspects of our justice system that do not have easy answers; cameras in court room, media coverage, and more. Kirk write a three part series on his experience aptly titled "Trapped with Ms. Arias." You can find those as well as books on weight loss and wellness here. Keep up with Kirk on social!

Mandy + Melissa | Moms and Murder Podcast
Did I just interview the nicest women in true crime? Possibly, but don't discount nice because these two have one of the most successful true crime podcasts out there, and you are going to hear all about how they started it (spontaneously!) and how they keep it going after nearly three years ( divide and conquer!). My guests today, Melissa and Mandy, were a ton of fun to interview and their dynamic is everything I hoped it would be. We get candid about why we like true crime, what we don't like so much about true crime, and who they would like to have as a guest on their show... or WOULD THEY? ( dateline style) Also, one of them is an enneagram 6 and one is a 7 -any guesses? Happy Almost Mother's Day to anyone celebrating, enjoy these OG ( not old) true crime mamas.

Karen Smith | Forensic Investigator + Host of 'Shattered Souls' Podcast
Karen Smith is a forensic investigator who is parlaying her years of experience into a new podcast - presented by CrimeCon - called Shattered Souls: a Forensic Detective's Diary. The podcast premieres May 9, so stay tuned and be sure to listen! For now, you can listen to episode 41 of DIE-ALOGUE and hear Karen share how she came to be a crime scene investigator  (you might be surprised), and how her work has shaped who she is. Her expertise has been called upon to consult for civil and criminal cases, and by the likes of CNN, HLN, among others.  I just had to ask about working with a certain Ms. Nancy Grace, and her answer satisfied.  I admitted I get nervous for the experts she has call into her show, but Karen assured me I needn't worry. Karen of course has a lot to say about true crime, but it's victims and justice that she cares the most about. Karen is also quite the creative which I was energized by. I hope you leave the episode as encouraged as I did! Be sure to keep up with Karen!

Matt Sprouse | True Crime TV Producer + Storyteller
Casey Anthony's Parents Speak, The Staircase: an American Murder Mystery, The Killing of Jon Benet: The Final Suspects Podcast. These are but a few of the projects my guest produced. Today I speak with a man who has VAST experience telling true crime stories. Not just any true crime stories- the ones we all know and...love? Hate to love? Love to hate? It depends on who you are, I suppose. Matt Sprouse is a TV Producer who led Jupiter Entertainment's programming for years, but is out on his own now. He was always looking for ways to tell these headline stories in the most human, respectful, yet compelling ways. I know you will love today's conversation because we get some inside scoop on these major cases, but also because we transcend that to tackle the larger issues that many of us wrestle with as we consume true crime. Also, Matt surprised me with a personal connection to a high profile case that shaped how he approached true crime. ( hint: it caused him to AVOID it for a long time) Listen to find out which story. Also he just sold a project that is in in development ( though paused because of COVID19), and he couldn't publicly share which case it is, but he told me off the record, and OMG, I cannot wait for it. I will share as soon as he gives me the green light. For Matt's full list of projects, you can check out his work on IMDB, and this is his production company, York + Wilder's site. I am thankful to Matt for killing the small talk! _________________________________________________________________ Maybe you want to watch a true crime parody I made? me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAdTBMKIamM I am thrilled to share that DIE-ALOGUE is now a Stitcher Affiliate, and this is really good news for you!

This is one of the traits I admire most in people and appreciate most in a guest! Yes, you will hear about their FASCINATING careers - how they started and what a "typical" day looked like as undercover ATF agent (Kevin), and a homicide detective (Lou), but you will also hear about their struggles and how they sought help and now help others who have experienced trauma in their work.  Please check out their podcast - they are talking to some really interesting people and they often tackle issues of mental health in law enforcement. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/end-of-watch-with-bootsy-sal/id1481870424 Here is Kevin's book about his story as a Savannah Homicide Detective.

Bill Thomas + Kristin Dilley | Mind Over Murder Podcast
Hello, DIE- HARDS! How are we doing? Things are changing quickly, and you will note the chatter about coronavirus is in most episodes coming out now, but we didn't always know how serious it was when we recorded. I get it now. IT'S SERIOUS. My family is safe at home, I am working remotely, overseeing online school for the kids and staying in as much as possible. I hope today's episode, and all the ones forthcoming, offer you some comfort, joy, distraction, peace, or a chuckle - if only for an hour or so. I spoke with two good souls, doing great work in today's episode. Bill Thomas, a victim's advocate after the devastating loss of his sister, Cathy Thomas along with her girlfriend, Rebecca Dowski — the first two victims in the Colonial Parkway Murders ,which claimed the lives of eight people in and around Williamsburg from 1986 to 1989. Bill + Kristin teamed up and together, they moderate the Colonial Parkway Murders page on Facebook with nearly 10,000 followers and recently launched the podcast, Mind over Murder.

Rebekah Heath | Librarian + Citizen Detective, "Bear Brook Murders"
I have been wanting to interview Rebekah Heath since I learned of her involvement with the Bear Brook case which I discovered by listening to the stellar podcast, Bear Brook. I finally got a hold of her, and was thrilled she agreed to talk with me. Rebekah is an amazing example of the power of citizen detective work, and inspires me to do more, to pay closer attention, and to remember why we are all here. Rebekah Heath was instrumental in helping to identify the victims found in barrels in 1985 + 2000 in New Hampshire: those females were: Marlyse Honeychurch, Marie Vaughn, and Sarah McWaters. Hear how exactly Rebekah connected the dots, and please note there is still one unidentified girl. Let's keep this case at the forefront so we can give her back her name as well. Rebekah will be on an upcoming 2 hour special on ABC's 20/20 this Friday, March 20 - tune in if you can. She will also be speaking at CrimeCon2020. ( if you register use code DIEALOGUE20 for 10% off!) I am so grateful for Rebekah's candor in sharing her story.

Woody Overton | Real Life Real Crime Podcast
Well, I wanted a law enforcement guest, and I got one. Woody Overton is currently host of the unbelievably successful podcast, REAL LIFE REAL CRIME, where he shares real cases he directly worked in over his long career. He started out as a corrections officer, moved to detective, then a state criminal investigator, became polygraph certified ( Oh man, did we discuss the polygraph!), and currently serves as an expert witness in trials all over the country. He is full of southern charm and stories and I am honored he was willing to kill the small talk! Thank you, Woody! I hope to chat with his podcast partner, Jim Rathman, next time. Listen to REAL LIFE, REAL CRIME wherever you get podcasts and check out their website because they very well could be doing a live show near you.

Kelli Jean Arnold | Fort Worth Trio Family Member
Welcome to Part 2 of my interview with Kelli Jean Arnold - second cousin to Rachel Trlica, on of the three girls dubbed The Fort Worth Trio. If you have not listened to Part 1 go back now and listen! I am venturing into something different this week: a case in two parts. Kelli Jean Arnold - second cousin to Rachel Trlica, one of the 3 girls who missing from Fort Worth Texas in 1974, found my true crime trivia page - YELLOW TAPE, when we featured their story on Missing Monday. Part 1: We struck up a conversation on Facebook and I invited her to tell her story on DIE-ALOGUE. I am honored she said yes.  Please note: I don't usually cover cases. I usually interview and while we might talk ABOUT cases, my podcast is not a source for the facts/timelines/details of a given case. Even in this one, Kelli Jean just shared info and memories with me, but I am not reporting on the events. That said, at the top of the episode I do read a brief overview researched and written by Patty Whalen Ucciardino. Other podcasts that I know of ( there are probably more) and that I listened to on this case include: True Crime Garage, Trace Evidence, and The Trail Went Cold. Again, thank you to Kelli Jean for her willingness to share. We hope that sharing the story keeps it moving towards truth and peace for surviving family members. __________________________________ Reminder!

Justin Evans | Generation Why Podcast
Before there was SERIAL, there was Generation Why. Justin Evans is one half of Generation WHY - the actual OG of true crime podcasts. He's also the one of the kindest guys in podcasting if you ask me. What a thrill to speak with him, hear about the early days of true crime podcasting, how he keeps it fresh with Aaron after 8 years, and where he finds himself now. He's also the host of The Peripheral podcast which I am particularly loving as it brings these PERIPHERAL topics around true crime, straight to the top...it's very raw and vulnerable. I like it. Justin and I recorded in NYC and my only regret is that we didn't have more time. Thank you, Justin, killing the small talk, and I hope to continue the DIE-ALOGUE!

What a privilege to interview HLN news anchor, seasoned investigative journalist, and all around gracious woman, Susan Hendricks! You might recognize her from HLN Network where she is the Weekend Express anchor, or you very likely have seen her work if you've followed the tragic story of the Delphi Murders.

On today's episode we talk deeply about Susan's work with the girls' families, their quest for justice, and her ongoing work around that case. HLN just launched a new podcast called Down the Hill: The Delphi Murders, where she contributes on several episodes.  Susan's genuine commitment to these families and this case is palpable. She believes answers are close and that this case WILL be solved. Please listen to this episode carefully then listen to Down the Hill: the Delphi Murders, and maybe, just maybe we will see justice for these girls and their families. ___________________________________________________________________ Reminder!

Rachel Monroe | Author 'Savage Appetites'
If you have enjoyed past conversations with deep thinking perspectives on women and true crime, you will love today's interview with Rachel Monroe. Rachel wrote a fascinating book, Savage Appetites : Four True Stories of Women, Crime, and Obsession', that explores the relation between women and true crime. She puts forth an idea that there are 4 archetypes that women identify with and she devotes a section of her book to each one. If that sounds neat and tidy, it isn't. It's messy and nuanced and we get into all of it!  Sadly, our audio connection was less than stellar, so my final question to her didn't make it into the episode. When asked what is keeping her up at night, she answered watching YOU on Netflix, especially because she just moved and doesn't have a LOCK or CURTAINS yet. Send her your positive thoughts. I recommend this book ( and our interview) who is ready to challenge pre-set notions on true crime in general, and certainly as it pertains to femininity and femaleness.

Melissa Maher | True Crime Idol + The Thread Network
If you love true crime and Instagram you have probably seen and loved "True Crime Idol" candles,  which are candles featuring our favorite "Patron Saints" of True Crime. My guest, Melissa Maher, is the brains and heart behind the brain, which also donates $2 of every purchase to End the Backlog. To that we say, BRAVO! I actually teamed up with Melissa to give one of these bad boys away and guess which one? HINT: He's more boy next door than bad boy. He's Paul Holes and if you want a candle with his likeness, head on over to my Instagram feed to get in on the action. @diealoguepod Now back to Melissa. In addition to learning her true crime origins story, hearing the back story of True Crime Idols, I also learned about Melissa's latest endeavor - The Thread Network, an online forum for true crime lovers to search, share and speculate, all in one place. How brilliant is that? Check it out and sign up for a free profile because she is adding new features to the site all the time. Melissa was a joy to speak with, a woman on a mission to engage true crime in a meaningful way, and an inspiring entrepreneur!

Robert Kenner + Taki Oldham | Netflix Confession Killer
Everyone is talking about Netflix's new true crime doc - Confession Killer. Robert Kenner and Taki Oldham are the producers and directors, and lucky me, I got to speak with both of them!  We wasted no time and dove right into plot and the mystery of who Henry Lee Lucas is? Liar? Sociopath? Serial Killer? Simpleton? This documentary is worth the buzz and warrants a conversation on DIE-ALOGUE, because it transcends a story about murder; it is about a broken system, what we choose to believe, and how to justice for victims and their families. Enjoy this dynamic conversation with two of the film industry's leading documentary film makers.

Laurah Norton & Brooke Hargrove are the creators of The Fall Line Podcast - a true-crime podcast that digs deep into cold cases that have received little, if any, public attention. You will hear all about how they seek out, filter, and choose the cases they cover. It is clear in the conversation, that both women put their heart into this work, though what that looks like varies for each of them. Together they have created something truly unique that has had tremendous success, but more importantly, has served families of victims who have not previously had a platform to share their stories. You can listen to The Fall Line here. Their website has more information, and both women also consulted on the recent Oxygen Special, "The Disappearance of the Millbrook Twins," which Laurah & Brooke covered in Season One.  SOCIAL MEDIA twitter: @fallinepodcast instagram: @falllinepodcast  As always, if you liked this episode and enjoy this podcast, be sure to subscribe, and please rate + review on iTunes!

Dr. Scott + Dr. Shiloh | LA Not So Confidential Podcast
Last month I had a stellar weekend in Los Angeles, and the true highlight culminated in my last night there, when I got to interview Dr. Scott + Dr. Shiloh, hosts of LA Not So Confidential podcast! I only met them this this summer at the True Crime Podcast Festival in Chicago, but it was one of those fast, easy connections where you instantly know you've met your people. Interviewing them was a lot like listening to their podcast - constantly learning as they speak! Except this was harder, because I had to be present, responsive AND think of the next questions. I think I did ok.  I was hoping for some clear cut/black and white answers on some questions, but I guess human psychology is more art than science because their responses were incredibly informative, but not straight forward. My brain hurts just a little. They are heroes for the work they do, and certainly among my favorite podcasters.

  Hello, DIE-HARDS! Today's episode is full of wisdom, and that is because my guest is so wise, so gracious, and so dedicated. Welcome Mani Tafari- a criminal defense attorney in Queens, NYC, and who you might remember from the HBO doc, "Who Killed Garett Phillips?" where he is featured as Mr.Nick Hilary's attorney, legal advocate,a nd friend.

Mani and I discuss issues like race and justice and I feel so vindicated in my love of true crime because he believes that sharing these stories is vital and positive. He also prefers to speak of true crime as true JUSTICE, and I so here for it.  You can find Mani on twitter @AfricananAfric1. I really want to hear what you think of this epoisode.

Carolyn Murnick | Author, 'The Hot One'
Top of show podcast trailer: Cults and Crime, check them out! I read 'The Hot One' by Carolyn Murnick last month and paused mid-read to look her up, follow her on social, and email her request an interview. She graciously obliged and I was delighted to know she lives in NYC so we interviewed at my house. Carloyn's book taps into all the things that make my heart skip a beat: women, female friendships, a murder, and an honest coming of age story. If you like any or all of these, then you too, are in for a treat because Carolyn really killed the small talk and we had a great die-alogue. You can find Carolyn's book, THE HOT ONE, here. Here's her website + on Twitter she is @carolynmurnick, and on instagram @cmurnick. ALSO! Tickets to the show I am co-hosting with the lovely Tori Telfer, can be found here!

Michelle Kaszuba | Assistant ADA New York
Please welcome Michelle Kaszuba into the DIE-ALOGUE! I met Michelle earlier this year, though it feels like I have known her forever. She came to play true crime trivia, we connected after the show, and I was super impressed by her business card which read Assistant District Attorney, Borough of Queens! What a badass. As we continued to spend time ( and trade texts), I learned how Michelle approaches her work as a prosecutor, and how passionate she is for missing persons and cold cases. I think you will not only love hearing her story and learning about her work, but will also feel so confident, knowing that people like Michelle are using their influence and power responsibly and always with justice as the motive. The non-profit we talk about is Private Investigations for the Missing. Trailer for LA Not So Confidential podcast at top of show.

Quinn - Childhood friend of Jon Benet Ramsey
This conversation is everything I imagined DIE-ALOGUE could be when I started the podcast: vulnerable, heart-felt, fascinating, challenging, entertaining, and insightful. I know, I know. How nice of me to review this episode so favorably.  Can't help it. Quinn is lovely and was so generous in sharing her story and perspective on growing up with Jon Benet, then living in the aftermath in Boulder. CO. We certainly delve into the Ramsey's but more so, we hover around the larger questions that surround this monumental case - the pinnacle of true crime, some might say.

Meghan Sacks + Amy Shlosberg | Direct Appeal Podcast + Women and Crime Podcast
I had the best conversation with Amy Shlosberg +  Meghan Sacks. Together, they host the Direct Appeal podcast - examining the case of Melanie McGuire, who maintains her innocence to this day, after her conviction of killing her husband in 2004. Amy +  Meghan are criminology professors at Farleigh Dickinson University in NJ.   We went HARD and tackled tiny issues like justice ( who gets it?), reasonable doubt ( we get this wrong A LOT), and how to consume true crime responsibly. But don't fear, we also laugh. A lot!   Best of all, we got to be the first to hear about their newest project - a new podcast debuting later this year. And yes, there are also updates to Melanie's case and their podcast which will be dropping a new episode SOON.   Listen to DIRECT APPEAL.  Follow them on social:  INSTAGRAM FACEBOOK TWITTER     As always, if you liked this episode and enjoy this podcast, be sure to subscribe, and please rate + review on iTunes!
