Ep. 170: Jesse James Hollywood (Murder) & Joseph Prushinowski (Fraud)

Read more
Happy Holidays! Thanks to all our loyal listeners we love you guys. This podcast would not exist without you.

These segments were handpicked by one of our Patreons. First we talk about Jesse James Hollywood. A little suburban badass who was owed money by a Kid Rock lookalike named Ben Markowitz. Since Ben wasn't paying his drug debt, Jesse decided to kidnap Ben's younger brother Nick as collateral. It was supposed to be a fairly harmless operation... however it didn't end up that way. Next we talk about the case of the "Robinhood Rabbi", Joseph Prushinowski. An orthodox Jew, Prushinowski defrauded numerous financial institutions out of millions of dollars. The twist in this story is that Prushinowski did not seem to personally benefit from any of these illicit activities. It is believed that he literally stole from the rich and gave to the poor, in this case, his orthodox Jewish community.

Episode 53: Drug Dealer Jesse James Hollywood & Andrea Yates

Read more

Jesse James Hollywood was a suburban Los Angeles pot dealer. At just 20 years old, he owned his own home, pulled in a grand a week, and had a couple of his old little league friends to sell his drugs and do his bidding. Jesse thought he was hot shit. So when one of his henchmen refused to fall in line, Jesse decided to send him a message. He kidnapped the man’s 15-year-old brother, Nicholas Markowitz, and later learned from a family lawyer that the justice system doesn’t go easy on kidnappers. What Jesse did next landed him on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

Then Kristin really bums us out with the story of Andrea Yates, a deeply troubled Texas mother who drowned her five children in her bathtub. Andrea’s story shocked and disturbed the nation, but it also raised important questions about Andrea’s mental state. By the time she murdered her children, she’d been hospitalized, she’d attempted suicide, she’d withheld food from her children, and she’d been prescribed antipsychotic drugs. Both the prosecution and the defense agreed that Andrea was mentally ill, but would the jury find her not guilty by reason of insanity?

And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
