3. Carole Tregoff: Lover in the Bushes

This is a story local to us, and we've never heard it discussed on any other podcast. In 1959, a glamorous, well-to-do doctor's wife named Barbara Jean Finch was gunned down one night in front of her mid-century modern West Covina, California home. A witness, her young au pair, saw the murderer with her own eyes. It was Barbara's estranged husband, Bernard "Bernie" Finch. But what the au pair didn't notice was Bernie's lover, Carole Tregoff, hiding in the bushes on the property. Even after Bernie fled the scene, she stayed there all night. Why was Carole there, and was she part of a plot to get rid of Barbara so that she and Bernie could marry? Join us to find out and, along the way, travel to Las Vegas and back, meet an accused gigolo hitman, and muse over why celebrities were so enamored with Bernie Finch. This is the third episode in the podcast's first season, "Accessories to Murder." If you like this episode, please subscribe and rate us with 5 stars on iTunes or wherever you a...

4. Sara Aldrete: Community College Cultist

It was the '80s: big hair, gold lamé, car phones, greed, Satanic Panic...and a young borderland woman who had a hand in helping to create that panic. When Sara Aldrete met cult leader Adolfo Constanzo, her goal of becoming a state college transfer and P.E. instructor changed to dark dreams of becoming a black magic high priestess. Before police caught up with what was later dubbed the "Matomoros Murder Cult," 23 people were brutally murdered, including a young college student named Mark Kilroy, whose disappearance helped bring publicity to the case. Sara was desperately infatuated with Adolfo--but was she culpable for these crimes? If you like this episode, please subscribe and rate us with 5 stars on iTunes or wherever you access podcasts.

5. Bonnie Parker and Blanche Barrow: The Bluest Shot-At Eyes in Texas

Bonnie Parker Thornton and Blanche Caldwell Callaway were two despondent flappers at the close of the 1920s. In fact, the popular 1929 song "Am I Blue?" could have been written for them. But in 1930, at the start of the U.S.'s Great Depression, they met two brothers, Clyde and Buck, who were known as the 'Barrow Gang.' Somehow, these two petty criminals and ex-cons won the hearts of Bonnie and Blanche to the extent that neither woman would desert them, even when the Barrow brothers' violent deaths were inevitable and their own lives were in danger. This episode presents the details of their hardscrabble lives before, during, and--in Blanche's case--after voluntarily becoming road-mates with the men who eventually became murderers and the subjects of one of the largest manhunts of the 1930s. Bonnie and Blanche were at once tough and vulnerable, glamorous and unsophisticated, self-centered and utterly devoted to others. If you like this episode, please subscribe and rate us with 5 sta...

6. Caril Fugate: Bad Love in the Badlands

The Midwest U.S. was rocked in the late 1950s not just by new-fangled rock 'n roll music or by its bout of horrific flooding, but by an even more sinister kind of horror. Fourteen-year-old Caril Fugate accompanied her 19-year-old boyfriend Charles Starkweather on a murder spree that would claim 11 lives between December 1957 and January 1958 and would later inspire a host of films and music about their rampage through the Badlands.

7. Cinnamon Brown: Named for Fame

If your parent had asked you to do something illegal as a teen, how would you have reacted? What it it was murder; what recourse would you have? This is the sad and sordid tale of a selfish Orange Co., CA man who, in 1985, persuaded his 14-year-old daughter to kill her stepmother. It's a tale that delves into the twisted mind of a bad dad who cherished wealth and under-aged young women more than he did his children. When his scheme was uncovered, he doubled down and ordered the killing of more people, including his deceased wife's younger sister--who, in a secret ceremony, had become his sixth wife.

8. Sylvia Plath: The Oven Suicides, Part 1

Some people best know Sylvia Plath for her unusual mode of suicide; others remember her for as one of the first authors to write openly about her own mental illness. But there's even more to her than that: the early loss of her father, the obsessive desire to be an over-achiever, that time she made national news as a missing person, the desire to find a 'perfect' husband, and the wild betrayal she felt when that perfect husband had an affair. But what exactly caused the author of THE BELL JAR to kill herself at age 30? If you like this episode, please subscribe and rate us with 5 stars on iTunes or your favorite podcatcher.
