Where We Wish Things Were Different

We have two contributors today because they were both a little shorter, but both are hard to hear because they were kids when it happened. Content warning is in place for every episode, so proceed with caution as always. Join us on Discord: https://discord.gg/eBnb4TQ Podcast RSS

Where Ignorance was Bliss

It’s episode 13 and if that wasn’t special enough, we have a special guest, Kate. Check her podcast out at Ignorance was Bliss. Be prepared for some violent details this episode and just beware it starts “When I was 12 years old.” We did have a little technical difficulties, but that's what editing is for. Finally, for IWB fans, “Didn’t you feel better before you knew that?”

Where We Talk Superfreaky

Episode 14 is about Rick James, Funk star, Kidnapper, and Rapist. We also went down the google rabbit hole a little. We were a little all over this episode, but we have some updates below for the information we didn’t have. Update: Mystikal got a whopping 1.5 years before being let out on bond. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/hip-hop/8498588/mystikal-released-on-3m-bond-in-rape-caseThe three men from Georgia each got life without parole and then some. https://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/local/crime/article217140785.htmlAnd good old Spokane dropped all charges without prejudice so they can be charged again, but still.
