And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of - The Dating Game Killer.

Episode 68 - The Tiede Family
00:48:08

In December of 1990 the Tiede family was on a break from their hectic lives up at their remote country cabin in Oakley, Utah. Rolf and Kaye along their two daughters Linae and Tricia were busily prepping for their annual Christmas party when suddenly, the tranquility was shattered by two cold-hearted intruders. The aftermath would haunt the Tiede’s for years to come.

Introducing Deadly Misadventures - A Chilling Expedition
00:34:45

For many explorers, it was a race to see which expedition would be the first to chart and reach the Earth’s Magnetic South Pole. A conquest finally accomplished by the Nimrod Expedition in 1909. A member of that team, 26-year-old Sir Douglas Mawson also held that honor and place in history. A few short years later Mawson would lead his own expedition team back to that icy coastline, hoping to conduct scientific research and chart new areas.

00:37:23

Deborah Scaling Kiley sat in a rubber dingy in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, reciting the Lord’s

Prayer in a desperate attempt to convince herself she hadn’t gone mad. The water surrounding

the boat had turned a sickly shade of red, as the blood of her devoured crew mate rose to the

surface.

However, later that day no one could get a hold of Jessie.

Introducing: Detective Trapp
00:08:51

Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs -- as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at Wondery.fm/mindsofmadnessDT

Episode 61 - Sherri Dally
00:56:54

The morning of May 6th, 1996 was routine for Sherri Dally. The thirty-five-year-old wife and mother woke up early and got her family prepared for their day, laying out her children’s clothing and organizing lunches. 

After she dropped her two young boys off at school, Sherri drove to the local Target in Ventura California to pick out a gift for her mother for the fast-approaching Mother’s Day. 

But Sherri never made it home from her errands that day. Instead, she vanished without a trace from the store’s parking lot, leaving behind a distraught family and a bewildered community.

00:52:55

In mid-July of 2019, three intrepid explorers who all had a deep appreciation of nature and love of adventure ventured into Northern British Columbia, Canada to make the most of all the region has to offer. A young couple set out on a road trip to explore Northern British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska and a seasoned biologist with some extra time on his hands decided to head further north than originally planned to take in the beautiful scenery.

01:00:37

From the outside looking in at least, Jeff and Susan Wright appeared to be living the perfect life: two kids, a dog, and a beautiful house in the suburbs of Houston, Texas.
