Rank #1: Mental Disorder Series Pt. 1: Paris Lee Bennett & Tommy Lynn Sells

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to our 30th episode AND the first episode of our series on mental disorders. Cassie starts us off with giving a rundown on Sociopathy and the murder of Ella Bennett by her 13 year old brother, Paris. Hannah then dives into Antisocial Personality Disorder and the murder of Kaylene Harris from notorious Texas serial killer, Tommy Lynn Sells. It's longer than our usual episodes, but we bring up alot of good points so stick around! Next week we discuss Borderline Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

We cut out alot of the chit-chat that y'all aren't fans of (as of late) and get straight to the point. We still have some fuck ups, don't worry.

Rank #3: Glenn Felts & Penny Scaggs

Podcast cover
Read more

We start 2019 with an extra long episode for y’alls listening pleasure. We begin with a social media recap and a few recommendations! Warning…this week we drink vodka and say “parallels” far too much.

Cassie opens the episode with the death of Glenn Felts, a vibrant and fun bar owner in Terlingua. Was his death a result of self defense, head trauma, forbidden love, or a booze fueled accident? We also discuss our questions and theories on reasonable doubt and jury selection.

Hannah then finishes out the episode with the strangely familiar murder of Penny Scaggs in Austin. What do you get when you take one dissolving marriage, a steel pipe, a carving knife and add a military husband and an office secretary? You guessed it…murder!!

(HANNAH IS VERY AWARE THAT SHE ACCIDENTALLY SAYS “PEGGY” INSTEAD OF “PENNY” A TIME OR TWO, SORRY IN ADVANCE…IT WAS THE VODKA)

Enjoy episode 44! Happy Halloween and don’t forget to message us if you want a pin or whatever.

This week Hannah and Cassie keep it pretty short and sweet for y'all!

Hannah begins episode 45 with a double homicide in Conroe. Grace and Tiffany Purnhagen were two young sisters who were brutally killed in the woods. Did their killer truly have help or was it all done by one man.. or a bottle..or a broomstick?

Cassie closes the episode with the murder of Diane Maxwell Jackson. Her case had been cold for decades, but in the end her brother's persistence and career change might have been what helped solve her murder.

We'll be guest reading on this upcoming Let's Not Meet episode being released this coming Sunday (February 10). Go support Andrew and his amazing podcast!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you get bored while spending time with family this weekend, or are the only one at the bar and want some company, then we have a super fun yet super bummer episode for you!

We start episode 41 with the brutal axe attack of Betty Gore in Wylie. Hannah makes fun of people having an affair, reads off too many phone conversations, and recreates a hypnosis therapy session! Was it Candy, Betty, Cetty, or Bandy??

Cassie ends the episode with a horrific case of child abuse out in Arlington. Davontae Williams was just 9 years old when his life tragically ended after countless years of torture. Listen to hear about the two women who made his life a living hell.

Happy Halloween!

So our Christmas episode is a bit late this year even though we recorded a week prior to the holiday....what's new.

We have a couple of weird ones this week! Hannah begins the episode with the longest case in the history of this podcast (hence why her notes weren't fully finished) and discusses the unsolved Christmas Eve murder of Cheryl Springfield in Ft. Worth.

Cassie then closes out the episode with the deaths of three young girls possibly at the hands of their father, Cameron Willingham, in Corsicana. The Innocence Project steps in and arson investigators don't make sense.

Enjoy the last episode of 2018 that's full of tangents and stupidity. Happy Halloween!

We are finally back with a new episode for everyone just in time for Halloween!

We begin Episode 39 with a bit of chit chat and a listener Q&A email...thanks Claire!

However, when we do finally get into the spooky stuff, Hannah starts things off with the eerie story of Olivia Mabel out in Celina, Texas. Who wrote the letters, who made the phone calls, and who left the fresh flowers?? 

Cassie then tells us about the super scary "Church of Wells Cult" out in Wells, Texas. Drugs, abduction, control, and brainwashing are all in the Bible, right??

(If we offend anyone with our jokes about religion we apologize now, we were just trying to keep things light hearted).

Enjoy the Halloween Episode!!
