The episodes are tedious after a while and just repeat the same information and talked about every theory imaginable, even those which are not plausible. I can’t believe I got to S2E8 until it occurred to me, hey this is really boring! It’s done. Wrap it up.

Rank #1: MARILYN: A Global Icon and Tragic Heroine - Chapter One

Podcast cover
Read more

She is the greatest female star Hollywood ever produced and in most people’s minds, the 20th century’s definitive sex symbol but on August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe’s incredible light was suddenly, shockingly, snuffed out and 57 years later, the full facts of her death remain hidden.

Now learn the real story as we show how in the course of her brief time in the spotlight, Marilyn Monroe became a pawn at the center of a deadly power struggle between the President of the United States, his Attorney General brother, the highest levels of the Mafia, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, Frank Sinatra, and America’s hidden Communist threat.

The woman who had used her sexuality to hold sway over men her whole life was ultimately undone by her choice of lovers – and become little more than a puppet in their deadly schemes against one another.

Rank #7: MARILYN: The Case Against the Kennedys - Chapter Eleven

Podcast cover
Read more

Increasingly concerned about Marilyn Monroe’s erratic behavior and the Kennedy secrets she knew, Bobby Kennedy was sent to LA to control the situation. Whether he turned up at Marilyn’s condo with the intention of killing her will never be known, but when she wouldn’t give up her Red Book, things turned violent. A sedative was administered by Dr. Greenson; it didn’t work. A pillow was placed over Marilyn's head, a shot given, and then a fatal injection directly into her heart. Peter Lawford was called to doctor the scene to look like suicide before the police were called, and the Kennedy cover-up operation swung into action.

Rank #9: MARILYN: A Star is Born - Chapter Three

Podcast cover

In this chapter we examine how Marilyn finally escaped a life of poverty, abuse and abandonment she was born into – and how she wasn’t averse to using whatever weapons were in her formidable armory to help achieve her dream of making it big in Tinseltown. With spectacular effect.

From her early modeling career to getting a break in Hollywood, bleaching her hair blonde and changing her name – as Norma Jeane became Marilyn Monroe. The roles were small, until she utilized the “casting couch”, becoming the lover first of influential Fox exec Joseph Schenck and then Johnny Hyde, VP of William Morris.

Was the CIA, panicked over Marilyn’s ties to Communists and all the information she knew, spurred into silencing her? Or could it even have been the Kennedy's themselves?
