Old Timey Crimey #28: Ocey Snead - “A Mother’s Malignant Madness”

Old Timey Crimey #28: Ocey Snead - “A Mother’s Malignant Madness”

September 27, 2019

We're heading back to the early 1900s, where we find Kristy's near-doppelganger! Aaaand she's a murder victim. 

Join us as we talk about Ocey Snead, a wonderful girl with a terrible family. We'll discuss her mother's swirly eyeglasses of persuasion, super weird medical and legal payment plans, and giant novelty pens!

And along the way, Kristy will look at her doppelganger's picture several times and get more disturbed with each viewing. In fact, she might eat her hair--or cry! It's a rollercoaster, folks. 

We have a nice palate cleanser at the end with a Five Minute Crimey: the absurd tale of Big Nose George. If you're looking for some new shoes, don't bother with designer--just find yourself a dead outlaw.

Also, give us that 5-star review you know we deserve, and in it, please tell us about your doppelganger! You can also follow us here on Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. While you're at it, hit us up on our FB group or Twitter to talk Old Timey Crime.

Thanks for listening, and remember: there are only so many faces in the world. You might just share yours with a murder victim.

Old Timey Crimey #27: Legs Diamond - “Kidney Sapphire at the Hotsy Totsy”

September 20, 2019

Ya just can't kill 'im, seeee?

Or maybe you can, but it'll take a LOT of attempts. Join us this week for a trip to old timey gangster land, where we follow Legs Diamond on his wild career of bootlegging, carousing with showgirls, and getting shot. Many times. SO many times. 

Along the way, of course we'll have gangster voices galore, along with a delightful exploration of gang names. And a discussion of a mother-daughter video (soon to be posted on our social media!) that will leave you needing about seven showers. 

Don't forget to give us a five star review on Apple Podcasts, where you can tell us your body part + gemstone gangster name.

Also, follow us here on Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. While you're at it, hit us up on our FB group or Twitter to talk Old Timey Crime. Thanks for listening, and if someone shoots you, be like Legs and survive...most of the time.

Scott and Kristy take a trip through Traumatown as they take a look at the infamous Albert Fish, a man to whom few proclivities were too extreme. 

We'll talk about some truly gruesome stuff, all while wondering: Why don't people's voices ever tell them to do GOOD things?!

*Scott misspoke during the episode and attributed his information to the wrong podcast, which explains the disparity between what we said and what you see here.
