Yes, I can read Wikipedia too. The hosts have absolutely no rapport, and the first episode is technically inept, as one of the cohosts appears to be in a different room with no microphone. The hosts are also too willing to believe the hocus-pocus nonsense in horror movies like the Exorcist and the Amityville Horror, which are not based on true crimes but on inventive opportunists looking to sell a story. Try True Crime Garage or Vanished if you’re looking for a good, true crime podcast. Actually, just about every true crime program I’ve listened to is an improvement over this garbage.

Rank #8: Episode 21: Janett Christman and When a Stranger Calls

Podcast cover
Read more

On March 18, 1950, 13-year-old Janett Christman was babysitting for the Romacks in their small, isolated home on the outskirts of Columbia, Missouri. That night, the police received a phone call from a girl screaming hysterically but were unable to get an address. At 1:35 a.m., the Romacks returned home to find Janett murdered.

The still-unsolved crime inspired the widely told urban legend, the babysitter and the man upstairs, which itself inspired several movies including the 1979 horror film “When a Stranger Calls” and its 2006 remake.

In this interview special, we chat with author Dana Fredsti, a writer/producer/director/theatrical sword fighter (she's in Army of Darkness) and animal lover! We had a great time talking about how she writes about zombies, science fiction and murder, details on her career doing stunt work (including being in Army of Darkness), favorite true crime and more!

Her most recent novels include Time Shards & Spawn of Lilith, both published by Titan books!

You can follow Dana on Facebook at https://facebook.com/danafredsti/, https://twitter.com/zhadi1, and Instagram https://instagram.com/zhadi1 and can pick up her novels pretty much wherever books are sold. Her website is danafredsti.com.
