Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey: A Netflix Doc Review and the Crimes of Warren Jeffs Part 2

September 26, 2022

Its time for us to wrap up talking about the FLDS church and its icky Prophet Warren Steed Jeffs and I am ready for this pig to be out of my head space! In this conclusion, we talk about Elissa Wall's escape and how she bravely decides to turn the tables and fight back against Warren in court after his arrest. More and more information gets leaked as he sits in jail about just how evil and manipulative he really was and about his "special mission." You won't want to miss this, so watch the documentary on Netflix, then listen to part 2 on here, and tell me your thoughts!

"Whatever the lord commands through his prophet is right, even if it seems wrong to our traditions. Your sacrifice will be what the lord tells you to do for the prophet..."

Those are the words of Warren Jeffs, FLDS Prophet and master manipulator. Listen as we dissect Netflix's Documentary, Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey, and talk about the survivors who broke free and got their freedom, and about the crimes and dealings of slippery, snake-oil salesman, The Prophet. There is a lot of information to cover and trigger warning there is mention of some topics that may be disturbing to some listeners. Listener digression is for sure advised for this case! Also, be sure and wait for Part 2's ep to drop because it is HEAVY.

The History of Human Torture Vol. 4

The History of Human Torture Vol. 4

September 14, 2022

"It [torture] comes from history. It comes from the record of the Inquisition, persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff; and it comes from the other side, too, from the Protestants burning the Catholics. It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women, and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches — and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban. Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don't accept him. Wherever you look in history, you find that. It’s still going on.” - Paul Pullman

I can think of no greater quote to end our mini-series on human torture and punishments. Join me as I close out our series talking about 9 insane tactics and tools to inflict the most pain. We are talking about the CIA, electric chairs, blood eagles... so hold onto whatever you need to hold onto, this is intense.

The History of Human Torture Vol. 3

The History of Human Torture Vol. 3

August 31, 2022

George Orwell once said, “Of pain, you could wish only one thing: that it should stop. Nothing in the world was so bad as physical pain. In the face of pain, there are no heroes.”

For the third installment of our History of Human Torture and Punishment, we are diving back into some macabre stuff. We talk about bamboo torture, boiling in oil, iron maiden, and the Spanish donkey just to name a few. Again, this episode is not for the squeamish.

If you have other forms of torture and punishment you want me to cover on a future episode, you can send it to my email imaddictedtocrime@gmail.com

The Tragic Case of Kitty Genovese

The Tragic Case of Kitty Genovese

July 29, 2022

Kitty Genovese was a beautiful, spunky, full of life Italian American who was taking life by the horns and really thriving at her job and her relationship with her girlfriend, Mary Ann. But someone selfishly took that away from her, and thanks to the sensationalism that happened, the country was turned on its head and New York and Kew Gardens was demonized for the actions of a few. Let's talk about it, let's talk about being decent human beings, and RIP Kitty.

Kitty Genovese: The Murder, The Bystanders, The Crime That Changed America by Kevin Cook (this is the book I referenced multiple times on the episode. you can find it as an audio on audible)
