Rank #1: Kirk Nurmi | Defense Attorney for Jodi Arias, Survivor + Author

Podcast cover
Read more

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!

Rank #2: Quinn - Childhood friend of Jon Benet Ramsey

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #3: Mandy + Melissa | Moms and Murder Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

You can keep up with Moms and Murder on their website, https://momsandmurder.com/ and on social: @momsandmurder

Podcast cover

Please welcome Tiffany Reese to DIE-ALOGUE! Sometimes I can't help  myself and I must reach out to a creator while still enjoying their poddcast/book/show, etc. Tiffany is one of those people. Something Was Wrong - her podcast about human dynamics, emotional abuse, and gaslighting, is SO compelling and so UNLIKE anything else I have heard. If you've yet to download and listen, do not delay - subscribe to her show, and get excited because her forthcoming season is about a cult! Also, you will be in great company because her podcast is wildly successful with a huge following.

Tiffany was so warm and easy to talk to, but equally inspiring. She is a true creative who in addition to a 4th season of SWW, will release a book later this year. Her currently available book is so fun and would make a great gift. I am excited for you to hear from her.

Rank #7: Susan Hendricks | HLN Anchor, Delphi Murders Journalist

Podcast cover
Read more

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. She also moderated a panel with the families at CrimeCon 2019 on the case.

Libby German and Abby Williams were killed 3 years ago almost to the day. 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.

Rank #8: Kelli Jean Arnold | Fort Worth Trio Family Member

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Part 2 will release tomorrow.

Thrilled to share my conversation with Sarah Cailean. A bonafide badass. From her early days as a patrol officer to her current work as a behaviorist, TV and film contributor, and soon, author and documentary producer! She's busy. We share a lot in common - diet cokes and mutual disdain for movement classes. Listen up and take notes because Sarah has a lot of great insight on true crime and all the other things we talk about when we talk about true crime.

Rank #10: Karen Smith | Forensic Investigator + Host of 'Shattered Souls' Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

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!

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. If you have not seen this doc, WATCH IT ASAP. It is so well done - very thought provoking.

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.

Welcome to the third episode of DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation. This one has been tough to keep a secret! I am beyond thrilled to share my conversation with Terra Newell!

If you don't already know her story you will hear how she survived a violent attack by none other than 'Dirty John.' Since that time, Terra has been working on her healing and helping others identify red flags and coercive abuse. Despite these heavy topics, we manage to giggle and I definitely learned more about Terra than I'd previously known

I did something a little different for this week's episode. I know my fellow podcasters will get the dark, paranormal, and spooky covered, so I spoke with Shannon Walker of Housewives Trivia fame in NYC. Together, we discuss just a few of the TRUE CRIMES of the REAL HOUSEWIVES.

You can find Shannon on instagram @housewivestrivia, and if you are in NYC, her live show ( SO MUCH FUN) is at QED: Astoria.

ALSO! There's a few tickets left to the show I am co-hosting with the lovely Tori Telfer, can be found here! It's called Female Persuasion and it's about women- led cults! TONIGHT, 10/30 in NYC!

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #20: The Fall Line Podcast | Laurah Norton + Brooke Hargrove

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Female Persuasion: Women and Cults with Rebekah Sebastian and Tori Telfer

Podcast cover
Read more

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!

Frank Lyford | Heaven's Gate Cult Survivor

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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!

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.

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!

Re-Release Episode 15 with Steve Hodel | Retired LAPD Homicide Detective + Author, Black Dahlia Avenger

Podcast cover

In light of the recent press mention in THRIVE GLOBAL, I thought I would re-play the episode that. made their list of "Unbelievable True Stories" because that's just what this one is... IF you CHOOSE to believe him. I have gotten some push back on this one, but I stand by the interview, the conversation and the wonderful Steve Hodel, who was gracious enough to share his story.


I will see you next week, Sept. 9 with an ALL NEW episode as we kick off Season 2!

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Episode 15 is a crazy story, and I really want your feedback on this one. I speak with Steve Hodel - retired LAPD homicide detective, author of 5 books, including the Black Dahlia Avengers series, and the son of George Hodel - who Steve believes is the BLACK DHALIA KILLER.

I won't say too much more, but his story is a wild one, and I appreciate Steve taking the time to share so much of it with me.

Matthew Horace | Author "The Black and the Blue."

Podcast cover
Read more

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! This isn't goodbye, it's ta ta for now - follow me on social to keep in touch!

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. Finally, this is the book that  Josh references that I want to make available as a resource following his podcast. Help At Any Cost by Maia Szalavitz.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Cheyna Roth | Investigative Journalist and True Crime author

Podcast cover
Read more

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! After listening to this episode, tweet a link to the episode (wherever you listened) and tag me: @diealoguepod and @Cheyna_R for a chance to win a copy! https://twitter.com/diealoguepodhttps://twitter.com/Cheyna_R

Harold Schechter | True Crime Historian + Author

Podcast cover
Read more

Harold Schechter is a true crime historian with an impressive 43 books under his belt. You might fancy yourself an expert on serial killers, but Mr. Schechter, legit and officially, which you will hear in our conversation. He is also Professor of Literature and Pop Culture at Queens College which only validates his expertise in story structure and history. He is just a walking, talking encyclopedia of true crime factoids, stats, history and stories! I am upping my true crime trivia game thanks to Harold.

Hi latest book, RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES, released yesterday. I highly recommend this book if you love true crime or movies, and espeically if you love both. Each chapter is based on a popular film and the true crime case or story it is based on. Did you know the following movies have roots in true crime? The Fugitive, Alpha Dogs, SCREAM, Dirty Harry, The Hills Have Eyes and so many more. Let's embark on a reading journey that will surely frighten, amaze, confound and entertain you.

Benjamin Taylor | Civil Rights Attorney

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Tim Pilleri + Lance Reenstierna | Crawlspace Network

Podcast cover
Read more

My guests today need no introduction: Please welcome the Crawlspace Network Founders, Missing Maura Murray Creators, and fixtures of the true crime community: Tim Pilleri + Lance Reenstierna.

You might know a little about these two already, but you’re going to learn a lot. What is Lance reading these days, do the guys even watch true crime shows, was Tim’s Mom a murderino?!?  I promise these two deliver as always in this laugh filled hour, but you will also learn they do so much more than you realize. They are content machines - but with heart. Check out their in house shows Missing Maura Murray, Empty Frames, pi-rational, Life Of, and more! 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

Podcast cover
Read more

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! DIE-ALOGUE Merch + Swag is here! Check out the products and scoop up what you like. Items ship July 19, so you have to order prior.
