Discussion on the 1-5 Killer/ September 11th Conspiracy of Kurt Sonnenfeld

EWow it's been a long time, but Amber is back in full force! In this episode, guest co-host Sarah is introduced to the craziness that is 21st Century Crime. Show her some love! We first talk about the movie, The Haunting of Sharon Tate and the travesty that was Big Brother 21. Sarah then jumps into a discussion on Randy Woodfield aka the I-5 Killer, her current connection to him and even Amber's current connection to him! After that, Amber gets into a September 11th conspiracy. Kurt Sonnenfeld wanted to tell the world what he found at Ground Zero and then a few months later he was held in prison for the murder of his wife. For our receipts of the week, Amber talks about her haunted experience at Zak Bagan's Haunted Museum and her continued obsession with Billie Eilish. Sarah shares a hilarious family moment that you've all probably experienced. Push play on those Lizzie McGuire DVD's because sometimes...all you need is crime!

The Murder of Michele Somers/ The Watcher

EGals and guys we are back...finally with a new episode! Of course we start off with two creepy Netflix recommendations, Dead Like Me and Slasher (specifically season 2) and briefly talk about how we can't stand Jussie Smollett anymore *insert eye roll here*. Amanda jumps right into the first story of Michele Marie Somers (MacNeill). Who overall deserved a wayyy better husband than the one she ended up with. She was a loving and caring wife, who fell into a marriage with a manipulating liar named Martin. Amber then tells the ongoing case of The Watcher. Who mysteriously sends letters to a family who bought a new house in Westfield, NJ. If you think you have invasive neighbors and an annoying HOA, just wait until you hear about the Broaddus family's ordeal! Grab your fake Bachelors degree and turn on Elton John's greatest hits because sometimes...all you need is crime!
