Old Timey Crimey #136: France‘s Teen Werewolf - ”Indecent Headdress”

October 22, 2021

Jean Grenier, a teen boy in 17th century France, had a troubled home life. When he left home to try to survive on his own, no one could have guessed he'd make history as the youngest person ever convicted of lycanthropy. 

Also, Amber explains how a headdress can be indecent, and we discuss the devil's proclivities.

Old Timey Crimey #133: Haunted Dolls - ”Disembodied Voices”

October 1, 2021

Spookyween commences with an examination of dolls that just so happen to be surrounded by weird activity. It's a total coincidence, clearly. Also a coincidence: that the podcast host wouldn't allow us to upload episode art. 

Thanks to sponsor Crazy is as Crazy Does: The Life of a Serial Killer by John H. Mudgett--buy it on Amazon or BN.

Go listen to Muriel's Murders because they're awesome.

May 8, 2020

This week, it's Amber's new girl-crush! And, let's face it, she should be EVERYONE'S girl-crush. It's Julie d'Aubigny, the bisexual, opera-singing, fencing master, burner of...oh, why spoil it? She's a criminal, yes, but she's fantastic.

Plus, a plea to Natalie Dormer: MAKE THIS A MOVIE.

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

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.
