Old Timey Crimey #25: Albert Fish Part 1 - “We’re so sorry”

September 6, 2019

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?!

Old Timey Crimey #23: Eugene Francois Vidocq - “Halloween Costume Indecisiveness”

August 23, 2019

Scott and Kristy look at Eugene Francois Vidocq, a man who just couldn't decide what he wanted to be--unless he was escaping from jail. From traveling entertainer to swordsman, from traitor to fake aristocrat, he did it all and SO. MUCH. MORE.

This man did not know how to handle a promotion or learn from experience, but he knew how to keep everyone guessing.

You'll be the best gumshoe ever if you leave us a 5-star review on iTunes. And if you'd like to control our fates, simply go to our Amazon wishlist and purchase a book for a future "Deep Dive" to pick a future episode topic. 

Don't forget to follow us here on Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts, and hit us up on our FB group or Twitter to talk Old Timey Crime. Thanks for listening, and always be your best Vidocq.

Old Timey Crimey #22: Louis Le Prince - “The More You Don’t Know”

Old Timey Crimey #22: Louis Le Prince - “The More You Don’t Know”

August 16, 2019

Kristy and Scott take a look at the mysterious case of Louis Le Prince, a man with fabulous facial hair and a true passion for invention. He should have become one of the top names in the annals of innovation, but fate--or maybe Thomas Edison--got in the way. We'll look at the case and the four main theories that try to explain just what happened to this historical genius. 

Don't miss Kristy's Edison Elephant Outrage, Scott's incredible obliteration of supposed new evidence in the case, and some exclamation point guidelines. 

You'll be the best gumshoe ever if you leave us a 5-star review on iTunes. And if you'd like to control our fates, simply go to our Amazon wishlist and purchase a book for a future "Deep Dive" to pick a future episode topic.

This week, Kristy and Scott look at the case of Hans Schmidt, the ol' Severin' Reverend. Join us as we examine the life and dastardly deeds of one not-so-holy man, his goose heads (not the beer), and why Mattel will never sponsor us. Plus, a listener poem!
