Description

Nature vs Narcissism is a true crime/comedy podcast based in Cincinnati, Ohio where Heather and her guests discuss true crimes and the narcissists who commit them. Sometimes we have alcohol and sometimes things get weird. In Season 1, we went down the alphabet focusing on different murderers and/or stupid criminals based on their name. For example; Episode 1 examines two notorious murderers whose names begin with the letter A. Season 2 we will go down the alphabet focusing on different serial killers/spree killers/murderers who were from or committed most of their crimes in cities/towns with each respective letter of the alphabet. For example, we may focus on someone from Cincinnati, Ohio for the letter C. Every episode is different and every episode is entertaining! We will delve into whether we think nature made the criminals commit these heinous acts, or if it's simply their narcissism getting the best of them. Keep in mind, this podcast is strictly for entertainment purposes and is in no way a professional diagnosis of the subjects discussed.

Hallow-Series
Week 3 Theme - A Family Affair
Day 19 - Making a Murderer(s)?

Many of you know about the Teresa Halbach disappearance and murder. If that name doesn't quite ring a bell; perhaps the Netflix series "Making a Murderer" will. This family affair was a bit different than what you've heard thus far in this week's series as Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were convicted of murdering, dismembering, and sexually assaulting Teresa in 2005.

But what if that's not what happened? What if Steven and Brendan are innocent? What if they were framed? We will be covering this case in depth in the future (as soon as Heather finishes the book) - especially since a lot has come out recently about this case.
What are your thoughts? Head on over to our Facebook Discussion page or our Patreon to discuss!

H (Honolulu, Hawaii) Honolulu Strangler
2544
The Hololulu Strangler is responsible for the murders of 5 women between 1985 and 1986. He has yet to be caught. All victims were found with their hands bound behind their backs
sexually assaulted, strangled, but they varied in age and background (17-36 years old). His victims were Vicki Gail Purdy (25), Regina Sakamoto (17), Denise Hughes (21), Louise Medeiros (25), and Linda Pesce (36). Police thought for sure that they had their guy, but circumstantial evidence wasn't enough to hold him. This suspect ended up moving to California and died in 2005. None of these cases have ever been solved AND after some more digging/investigating for the production of a true crime show last year; there may have been at least one more victim from 1982. Additionally, the police may have had their killer, had DNA testing been an option in 1986.

#JusticeForDJDay
2589
Today - October 3, 2019 is #JusticeForDJDay.
As many of you may already know; I (Heather) co-host another podcast called Status Pending with Scott Fuller. DJ was the inspiration behind the entire podcast Status: Pending.
DJ's case has had such an impact on me that I want to spend my 30th birthday today, spreading the word about DJ; will you help me?
________________


On October 3, 2016, a gun went off and a 911 call was made. Responding officers find DJ shot in the face. He’s deceased. Witnesses claim someone else in the home - a one-time romantic interest of his wife Brandy’s - shot and killed DJ. Some say accidentally, some say intentionally.
Members of DJ’s family can’t believe that DJ would kill himself, and some sheriff’s detectives don’t buy the suicide. But the state’s crime lab and a medical examiner disagree. And so nobody has ever been charged with the death of Donald Edward Fickey, Jr.
Since we released the case on Status: Pending, Amanda (DJ's sister) has been tirelessly working to ensure that the GBI looks into her brother's case. She has reached out to tons of podcasters as well as YouTubers and even folks with the Investigation Discovery Channel to share her brother's story.
____________
You can sign the petition to help bring this case in front of a grand jury! This is an important step to get Justice for DJ! You can visit change.org and search for “help support justice for dj…” and the petition will populate. Your signature can help! As of today, there are 23,080 of the 25,000 goal: https://www.change.org/p/help-us-in-getting-justice-for-dj-and-his-3-babies-justicefordj (petition). You can also visit Amanda’s Facebook page called “Justice for DJ” Or reach out to her on Twitter: @JusticeForDj88 Amanda has also set up a website where you can find all of the information about DJ’s case: https://justicefordj.com/

Change your page orange for #JusticeForDJDay - Visit the Status Pending or Nature vs Narcissism Facebook page for the photos to use (or you can create your own).

G (Green River, Washington) Gary Ridgway AKA Green River Killer
5290
**Small disclaimer - I tried to make a water sound in the intro...didn’t work out the best - oops! Oh well, it’s only a few seconds long!**

In this episode, Heather is joined again by the one and only Scott Fuller to discuss a serial killer from the Green River, Washington area. This is a killer that Heather has NEVER looked up until now. Not too sure why, other than the fact that she felt as though he was way overdone in the True Crime genre and perhaps not too fascinating. However, Scott has a way of providing information and details that will pull someone in and that’s exactly what he did here!

Gary Leon Ridgway was born on February 18, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is responsible for at least 49 murders of teenage runaways and female sex workers from 1982 until 2001 – most of these murders occurring between 1982 and 1984 though. Gary aka “The Green River Killer” has confessed to at least 71 murders but said that there very well could be more but he lost count. He is currently sitting in a cell at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla and serving 48 life sentences plus 480 years.

Heather and Rachelle have been referencing the Bill O’Reilly quote “We’ll do it live! Fuck it!” ever since Rachelle busted out this line in one of the episodes! Needless to say, it’s been an ever-present and lingering title for a future episode. Scott has jumped in and interviewed Heather about Nature vs Narcissism in this episode; LIVE (okay, kind of…)! Heather was NOT prepared for the way this episode happened and had NO CLUE what Scott was about to ask. Anyone who knows Heather, knows that she is very uncomfortable without a plan BUT she did pretty well…PLUS it was a blast! This is a really fun episode, with TONS of shout outs!

F (Frankford, Philadelphia) Frankford Slasher
3609
In this episode, Heather is joined by the one and only Scott Fuller to discuss a serial killer from Frankford, Philadelphia. He is known as the Frankford Slasher and is believed to have killed 8-9 people between the years of 1985 and 1990. Leonard Christopher was apprehended for the murder of 46-year-old Carol Dowd in 1990 and police pegged him as the slasher. However, they were unable to confirm that he was indeed the slasher as he was behind bars when another victim was killed. Another man who was questioned in the cases, disappeared later. That man AND Christopher Leonard have both since passed away. Now, in 2019, city investigators are looking at new DNA evidence.

In this CRISPY BONUS episode, Heather is joined by Brittany again!!! Yes; you’ll understand why it’s called CRISPY BONUS about halfway through! As you’ll hear in the episode, Brittany surprised Heather with a trip to Cincinnati over the weekend – which worked out perfectly because the last episode she was on (Flint, MI) just released on Friday, August 23! In this episode, we have a shout out for an amazing listener/supporter of the show; Jennifer S. who sent us a few emails regarding the Flint, MI area and distance to Saginaw. We appreciate being corrected when we mess up – because we want ACCURATE information to be given to our listeners. So, thank you Jennifer & thank you for being so kind! We also have a Patreon shout out for Julie Ortega – thank you so much for your patronage! As the episode progresses, you’ll hear about some giveaways that we have planned as well as gifts that will be shipped out to our Patrons for the holidays, and future collaborations on the show! Lastly, you will hear about a new book that a friend of the show has co-authored! You should get yours NOW – it’s on Amazon and the link is below!

E (Epazoyucan, Hidalgo, Mexico) Juana Barraza
4339
In this episode, Heather and Rachelle discuss another female serial killer! Her nickname was La Luchadora...which means “the fighter”.  Why, you ask? Well, in Mexico, professional wrestling is a popular form of entertainment.  But it’s a bit different than one might expect by the name...in Mexico, professional wrestling aka Lucha Libre has a certain sense of pageantry.  Luchadores (aka wrestlers), often wear colorful masks as they perform different acrobatic leaps off the ropes to grapple with their opponents. But Juana Barraza had a more sinister side to her.

She lived somewhat of a double life.  Her day consisted of working as a popcorn vendor and sometimes a luchadora at a wrestling venue in Mexico City.  She was described as being stocky and strong. Barraza took to the ring as The Lady of Silence as she competed in the amateur circuit.  By night, she was a completely different person - known as Mataviejitas, or “little old lady killer.” She may have killed up to 50 woman who were all over the age of 60! She is serving a sentence of 759 years in a Mexican prison…where she is actually living a decent life; to hear her tell it!

E (Eugene, OR) Unidentified Killer
2443
In this episode, Heather is joined by her sister Kim again; to discuss a killer from Eugene, Oregon who is STILL UNIDENTIFIED. With the new technology being used today (Parabon Nano Labs); police in Oregon have been able to link three cold case homicides to the same unknown suspect. What we do know is that the suspect is a MALE. The three victims are 62-year-old Gladys May Hensley (murdered in June of 1986), 33-year-old Janice Marie Dickinson (murdered in June of 1986), and 73-year-old Geraline Spencer Toohey (murdered in February of 1988). In this episode, you’ll learn what Parabon Nano Labs is doing to help solve cold cases and what Snapshot Phenotyping is. You’ll also hear an excerpt from Chapter 6 of Status Pending Podcast where this technology is being used in an unsolved case from 2004.

D (Dakota Country, Wyoming or Dat B****) Polly Bartlett
2499
In this episode, Heather and Rachelle travel to Dakota Country/Dakota Territory, WY; way back in 1868, to discuss a woman who may or may not have been the murderer of at least 22 men.  This case is different from previous episodes as we aren’t 100% sure whether or not the details are based on factual information. Even though we found a decent amount of information, there is debate about the accuracy of the events. If true though, this B**** was manipulative and had her daddy wrapped so far around her finger that he worked with her in robbing and disposing of the bodies.

D (Detroit, Michigan) James Matthews
2851
In this episode, Heather is joined by her sister Kim to discuss a killer from Detroit, Michigan who had “slipped through the cracks”.  65-year-old James Matthews is a suspect in two homicides in Michigan, three in Texas, and one in New York.  He was being held in jail for allegedly strangling a 35-year-old woman.  Since no charges were filed within the required 72 hours, he was released from jail.  About four months later, police had enough evidence to move forward with a murder warrant.  As you’ll hear in the episode, apparently the police “flubbed” this case.     Stay tuned at the end for an outtake!Follow Kim on Instagram: @kimmrueFollow Kim’s Art page on Instagram: @upfromthegroundwatercolor Subscribe to Cult of Domesticity Podcast Our theme music was created and customized by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.  You can follow him on IG (@wetalkofdreams)  and Twitter (@WeTalkofDreams).

C (Canton, MI) Arthur Ream
3788
In this episode, Heather is joined by Scott from Frozen Truth Podcast to discuss a man who admits that he is attracted to young girls, has been arrested for raping young girls, and buried a 13-year old girl in 1986 but swears that he’s never killed anyone.  We’ve labeled this as the Canton, MI episode as that is where a couple of his potential victims were from.  Police have even stated that he may be linked to four to six murders of girls who range in age from 12 to 17 who disappeared between 1970 and 1982.  In this episode, you will hear from Ream, in his own words, about the day 13-year-old Cindy Zarzycki went missing in 1986.  He gives a chilling account about what transpired and why the police weren’t called that day.  We would love to hear your thoughts on this case.  Is he telling the truth?  Is he a serial killer?Subscribe to Frozen Truth PodcastSubscribe to Bad In The Boondocks PodcastPurchase your live show tickets to see Getting Off Podcast& Ignorance Was Bliss Podcastlive in Chicago:BUY YOUR TICKET!  Our theme music was created and customized by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.  You can follow him on IG (@wetalkofdreams)  and Twitter (@WeTalkofDreams).

C (Cleveland, Ohio) Ariel Castro
6476
In this episode, Heather is joined by Courtney from The Cult of Domesticity Podcastto discuss a local monster!  We head to Cleveland, Ohio to discuss Ariel Castro AND his survivors.  Castro was born in Puerto Rico but moved to Cleveland, Ohio with his family as a child.  He bought a house on Seymour Avenue…that he later turned into what can only be described as a “House of Horrors”.  He kidnapped three young women and held them captive in his home for over 10 years.  He beat them, starved them, wouldn’t allow them to leave the house, and even raped them on a regular basis.  One of his victims suffered at least 5 abortions at his hands while another was forced to have his baby.  Michelle Knight was 21 when he abducted her in 2002, Amanda Berry was 16 when he abducted her in 2003, and Georgina DeJesus was just 14 when he abducted her in 2004. After their escape in 2013, Castro was sentenced to life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years. He committed suicide in his cell just a little over a month after he was sentenced.  All three women are alive and doing their best to help other families of missing and exploited children.Subscribe to The Cult of Domesticity Podcast Our theme music was created and customized by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.  You can follow him on IG (@wetalkofdreams)  and Twitter (@WeTalkofDreams).

Boulder County native Scott Kimball was known as a career criminal and conman whom had an uncanny ability to convince people to give him the benefit of the doubt. In fact, he was so charming, that he was able to convince the FBI…the fucking FBI to release him from prison on December 18, 2002 so that he could become a PAID informant for them!  He was known as “Hannibal” or “Joe Snitch” and took the lives of at least 4 people…including his own uncle.  He is serving a sentence of 70 years after pleading guilty in 2009 to two counts of second degree murder; one for his uncle and another for Kaysi McLeod, Jennifer Marcum, and LeAnn Emry.

12-Year-Old Lifer (Paul Henry Gingerich) with Warbaby
3229
Did you know that in Indiana (where this case takes place) under extreme circumstances, children as young as 10 years old can be tried and sentenced in adult courts?  The child that we will be discussing in this case remains one of the youngest EVER to be tried in this fashion.  In this collaboration, Heather and Warbaby (from the Murderous Minors: Killer Kids podcast) discuss Paul Henry Gingerich and Colt Lundy.  On April 20, 2010, Indiana; 12-year-old Gingerich and Lundy were at Colt's home in Cromwell, Indiana (which is about 2.5 hours NE of Indianapolis or 1 hour NW of Fort Wayne) with Colt's 49-year-old stepfather, Phillip Danner.  They decided that they wanted to steal Danner’s truck and drive to Arizona.  They determined that the only way to get away with it was to “take care of him [Phillip]”. How would they do this?  They shot him…with his own hand guns.

Kyle Plush (Answer the Call) with Lisa

In this collaboration, Heather and Lisa (from the Eye for an Eye podcast) discuss the tragic death of 16-year-old Cincinnatian, Kyle Plush.  He was reaching for a tennis racket that was located behind the seat in the back of his van when the seat collapsed, folding shut on the teen as he dialed 911 for help.  This story is so tragic because it seems as though he did everything in his power to get help to no avail.  He was discovered dead 6 hours later, in his vehicle, in the parking lot of his school. There was one positive outcome from this horrible tragedy though; check out www.kyleplushanswerthecall.org to see what the family is doing in his honor to create a safer community.  Promo for: Killer JobsPromo for: Swindled Support us & get cool stuff!https://www.patreon.com/NVNpodcastFind us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/

In Part 2 of this episode, Heather and Kate (from the Ignorance Was Bliss podcast) discuss the consequences of Gypsy’s actions. Additionally, we hear about the interview that Gypsy’s stepmother, Kristy, had regarding information not released in the documentary.  Again, I discuss this documentary and my reactions to it on the patreon feed for Status Pending with my cohost Scott Fuller.  Gypsy’s boyfriend killed her mother (Dee Dee) after Gypsy suffered years of neglect and abuse at the hands of Dee Dee.  She and her boyfriend were both arrested and placed in jail for their involvement.  Keep your eyes and ears open for a potential follow-up episode with Kristy.   Promo for: Something's Not Right PodcastCheck out Status Pending Podcast Support us & get cool stuff!https://www.patreon.com/NVNpodcastFind us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/

Munchausen by Proxy: Part 1 (Dee Dee & Gypsy) with Kate
3364
In Part 1 of this episode, Heather and Kate (from the Ignorance Was Bliss podcast) have teamed up again to bring you another in-depth collaboration!  In this 2-parter, we discuss Munchausen by Proxy and the effects that it has on the child as well as those around the diagnosed individual.  Although rare, MBP is a real diagnosis that often times turns deadly.  One of the most severe cases ever reported was the case of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard.  We pulled a lot of the information from the documentary “Mommy Dead and Dearest” which I cover on the patreon feed for Status Pending with my cohost Scott Fuller.

Black Dahlia: Part 1 (w/Augie Peterson)
3121
In this special collaboration episode, Heather teams up with Augie Peterson from the Short Stories of Augie Peterson podcast!  In part 1; you will hear about the case of Elizabeth Short, aka the "Black Dahlia".  This is found on the Nature vs Narcissism feed - well, would you look at that...you're already here!  In part 2; you will hear about the movie adaptation of the case...which apparently had nothing to do with the actual life and murder of Elizabeth Short.  In enough words...this movie was absolutely terrible and Augie has the review to back that up!  So, if you need a nice pallet cleanser after hearing about the absolute brutality of this case, then head on over to the Short Stories of Augie Peterson feed! Nicknamed "the Black Dahlia," Elizabeth Short was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 29, 1924. Twenty-two years later, Short, an aspiring actress, was brutally murdered in Los Angeles, California, her body cut in half and severely mutilated. Her body was found on January 15, 1947, in a vacant lot near Leimert Park. The Black Dahlia's killer was never found, making her murder one of the oldest cold case files in L.A. to date, as well as the city's most famous.

Your Brain on Murder (Neal Falls, Sex Workers, Dismemberment & Subway Bags)
3855
When Heather Saul opened her Charleston, WV door to greet the stranger she’d agreed to meet through an escort ad she had placed, she knew instantly she was in mortal danger.  The man said just three words – “Live or die” – then held a gun to her stomach. The man grabbed Saul by the throat and dragged her around the house, until in a rush of pure adrenaline and an effort for self-preservation, she was able to get control of his gun and shot once, killing him. In this special collaboration episode, Heather sits down with Moxie from the Your Brain on Facts podcast to discuss serial killer Neal Falls.  Heather was an escort and Falls’ next intended victim.  That is, until she killed him instead…potentially saving dozens more. Falls is believed to have killed across 8 states and traveled with his kill kit in his car.  He would dismember the bodies and dump them in rivers as well as on the side of the highway.

This episode is filled with shenanigans as dad and Ashley return for more crime & more stories.  We recorded in the dining room as per the usual but we didn't wear headphones.  At times, we couldn't tell how loud we were, so I tried adjusting and taking out the table bumps.  After about halfway through, dad realized the error of his ways and backed away from the table.  That didn't stop him, however, from texting during the entire "broadcast" - so you'll hear his phone in the background.  We talk about everything from dad's experience at the police department, to our childhoods, to current crimes in the news, to theories about cases and crimes.  This was a fun episode with a ton of shout outs!  Dad wants to come back for future episodes but would like questions or case suggestions...so, send them in!Shout outs:Based on a True CrimeGetting OffOff The CuffsThe Brothers CommonplaceStatus: PendingPromo:Trace Evidence Support us & get cool stuff!https://www.patreon.com/NVNpodcastFind us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/

Episode 27: Z (Zebra Murders)
3249
In the FINAL letter episode of Season 1, Heather and Rachelle discuss the Zebra Murders aka The Zebra Killings.  The best way to describe them is via a direct quote that we found here: https://blog.sfgate.com/crime/2013/03/13/zebra-killer-denied-parole/.  The Zebra Killings were “execution-style shootings that killed 14 people and wounded eight others between October 1973 and April 1974, mostly at night along the city’s Divisadero Street corridor. The gunmen were African American and the victims were mostly white. The killings got the Zebra label from police use of a special radio band, the Z channel, in their investigation.” (pulled quote from *PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS (like most others) A GRUESOME CASE WHICH INVOLVES TRIGGER WARNINGS* Although we are wrapping up Season 1, that doesn’t mean that we are done!  We will have several guests appearing on the show between Season 1 and Season 2.  Season 2 will still be alphabetical BUT we will be covering killers (not necessarily serial killers) from everywhere.  We will choose them based on where they’re from.  For instance, the Zebra Killings took place in San Fransisco, California so we would cover them for our “S” episode.  If YOU have a suggestion, send it to us!  We want to cover lesser known killers this season!

Episode 26: Y (Robert Lee Yates)
2443
In this episode, Heather and Rachelle discuss Robert Lee Yates.  Yates murdered at least 13 people (12 women and 1 man) but it is suspected that he murdered many more.  One of the most confusing things about his motive/drive/whatever you want to call it; is the fact that he was mad at prostitutes (women that he killed) for selling their bodies as he grew up very religious and it was against his religion, yet he would participate in the selling of their bodies…he was the ‘John’. One of the best things about this case? The dumbass was eventually put on death row and resides at the very prison that he worked in back in 1970. Sucks to suck!  Awesome tidbit about this episode?  Nick Gansner from the Getting Off podcast read the statement that Robert Lee Yates gave to the jury during his trial.  Thank you so much, Nick!  Promo:The Murder in my Family Support us & get cool stuff!https://www.patreon.com/NVNpodcastFind us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Email me for sources.

This is a very special episode where Heather has the amazing opportunity to interview Jason Eric Ross! Jason is a licensed Psychotherapist, an actor and writer!  At the age of 48 he moved back to NYC and began acting on shows such as The Perfect Murder, Mysteries at the Museum, and Dateline Crime with Tamron Hall.

Episode 23: V (Vaughn Greenwood & Velma Barfield) with Megan
3707
In this episode, Heather and Megan discuss the letter V.  Heather covers Vaughn Greenwood aka the "Skid Row Slasher" and Megan covers Velma Barfield aka the "Death Row Granny".  Vaughn was an American serial killer who did not fit the common profile of a serial killer.  Vaughn was an African American man who murdered 11 victims but suspected of 13; 9 of which were committed in a two-month time-frame, one of his victims survived, and he broke into Burt Reynolds' home...so there's that!  He was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1977.  Velma was an American serial killer who was convicted of one murder but confessed to six.  What makes her case even more interesting is the fact that she was the first woman in the United States to be executed after the 1976 resumption of capital punishment, the first since 1962, and the first woman to be executed by lethal injection.       This episode was brought to you by the Murder.ly Network: Podcasts to Die For!  Promo for: Affirmative Murder Find us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion Group BUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/ Email me for sources.

Episode 21: T (Ted Bundy: Part 1 with Nick & Jessa from Getting Off)

HEATHER IS FANGIRLING!!!  In this episode, Heather invites Nick and Jessa from the Getting Off Podcast to discuss everyone’s eye candy serial killer; aka the Lady Killer, Ted Bundy.  Although the Nature vs Narcissism Podcast has covered Ted Bundy in the past (Episode 2), we thought it would be fun to discuss Ted with folks who understand and are a part of the criminal justice system.  Since Nick and Jessa are defense attorneys, we thought it would be fun to do a crossover episode where they break down the Chi Omega trial and share their expert opinions as well as their personal thoughts on the case as a whole!  We have a blast and learn a lot about Jessa’s ‘wayward youth’, as Nick describes it!  This episode was a blast and I learned a lot in Part 2; which is over on the Getting Off feed.  You will probably learn a lot and may have even acquitted him if you knew what we now know about the case and evidence!!  Be sure to check out Frozen Truth as a new season will be airing on June 24th!

Episode 19: R (Robert Ben Rhoades & Dennis Rader)
2976
In this episode, Rachelle covers Robert Ben Rhoades (aka the Truck Stop Killer) and Heather covers Dennis Rader (aka the BTK Killer).  Robert Ben Rhoades would pick up hitchhikers along the highways to torture and kill them.  Whenever the females were with a male companion, Rhoades would shoot and kill the male immediately, whilst tying up the female in the cab of his semi-truck; which he converted into a traveling torture chamber.  Rhoades called himself "Whips & Chains" and often kept his female victims for weeks at a time.  He would rape and torture them until he decided he was done playing with them.  Rhoades ended up killing at least 3 but possibly 50 victims in the span of 15 years.  He is 72 years old and resides in the Menard Correctional Institution; where he has been since 1990 and will remain until death.  Dennis Rader is a different kind of species but shares many qualities with Rhoades.  Dennis was also born in 1945 and went years without being apprehended.  However, unlike Rhoades, Rader had a family and to many he seemed like the perfect family man.  He was President of the Christ Lutheran Church and a Cub Scout leader.  Rader, like Rhoades, had a kit/box of tools in which he used to torture and kill his victims.  Rader called this his hot box and stated that he killed because of his Factor X deep within that compelled him to live out his fantasies...".

MURDERsode 12: Indiana Crimes (220-year sentence & inmate dating) with Ashley
3336
In MURDERsode 12: Indiana Crimes (220-year sentence & inmate dating sites) with Ashley, Heather invited Ashley over to discuss a hometown attempted murder.  Eddie Lowe is the main focus of this episode as he brutally beat a woman with a hammer, to the point that she needed reconstructive surgery on her face.  To this day, we cannot find any information on her.  We are unsure if she is still alive and/or where she may be.  Eddie Lowe, on the other hand, is currently serving a 220-year prison sentence.  Additionally, we discuss prisoner dating sites, the movie "Don't Breathe", and the book "Confessions of a Sociopath".  We were drawn to the topic of prisoner dating sites as we recently met someone at our workplace who is currently dating an inmate.  Her boyfriend is serving time for a murder that he committed when he was 17 years old.  This is an interesting episode with tons of information and laughter!  We have to laugh sometimes when we're discussing dark stuff; otherwise, we will be depressed all the time. Keep your eyes peeled for an outtakes episode (MURDERsode 12.5) and a Part 2...possibly a Part 2 & Part 3 of MURDERsode 12: Indiana Crimes.  Heather invites Ashley back over as well as Brandon who runs a podcast of his own.  We delve a bit deeper into the Eddie Lowe story as well as other spooky and crime-related topics!Shout outs in this episode:KENTUCKY HOT BROWN BOYS Murderous Minors: killer kidsPromos in this episode:Ignorance Was Bliss Talk Spooky To Me Podcast Find us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!

Episode 17: P (Paul Michael Stephani & Philip Markoff)
3151
In this episode, Heather covers Paul Michael Stephani (aka the Weepy-Voiced Killer) and Rachelle covers Philip Markoff (aka the Craigslist Killer).  Paul had a tendency to call the cops on himself after killing his victims.  He had so much guilt and remorse that he would call, while crying/weeping, to inform the police that he had killed his victim and he didn't know why/couldn't stop.  His track record was terrible as two of his five victims survived (good for them), but that is what eventually led to his capture.  As for Philip, he was the epitomy of every parent's dream child.  He was in sports, clubs, and attending med school.  He was engaged and already planned the wedding with his fiance.  Everything seemed to be nothing short of perfect.  That is until, he and his fiance were on their way to the casino one day when they were pulled over and Philip was taken into custody.  For what, you ask?  Luring women from Craigslist ads to hotel rooms where he would rob and kill them.   Don't forget to send us your questions for our Q&A episode!!!   Shout outs:Dark DivideBig ConversationsNature of the Beast  Off the CuffsFind us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupBUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!

MURDERsode 10.5: Jodi Arias (Part 2 Bloopers, Outtakes, & Interview Clips) with Brittany Schultz
1112
In MURDERsode 10.5: Jodi Arias Part 2 – Bloopers, Outtakes, & Interview Clips, Brittany & Heather discuss everything from Netflix to Jason’s cologne to NOT WANTING TO COOK DINNER FOR OTHERS.  In MURDERsode 9, Brittany tells the story of Jodi and her friend growing pot in a Tupperware container…on the roof of her house.  At the beginning of this episode, you hear Jodi’s father discuss this event as being a turning point in his daughter’s behavior, from the age of 14 through her adult life.   Although Jodi Arias suffers from mental illness, I still believe that she is a complete narcissist who needs to stay behind bars!  But then again, she seems to really be enjoying herself and her life behind bars.   As learned in MURDERsode 10, she has won an "American Idol" type of competition and apparently really enjoys singing while in the interrogation rooms as well.  In this episode, you will hear plenty of snippets that show her cool demeanor about prison life.  Unless laughing, growling, and singing are coping mechanisms…to each their own, I suppose.  We will be posting pictures on the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.  Additionally, we will be posting discussion questions in the Facebook Discussion Group.  We would love to hear from you!  Come on over and share your thoughts!Find us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram) @NvsNpodcast (Twitter) @naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupFind Brittany on all the things:@brittanyschultz09 (Instagram)@brittschultz09 (Twitter)BUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!Check out our sources on the website!

5184
In MURDERsode 10: Jodi Arias Part 2, Brittany is back to discuss the relationship between Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander.  Additionally, Brittany discusses the murder of Travis, the investigation of Jodi, her jail stay, and ultimately her conviction & sentencing.  We learn a lot about the actual crime scene and the events that transpired after the murder.  Where did Jodi go?  Why did she need three gas cans?  Why did she leave Travis a voicemail?  Who were the ninja people?  Were these all ways to cover her tracks?  Did she really think that she had the ultimate cover-up?  Although Jodi Arias suffers from mental illness, I still believe that she is a complete narcissist who needs to stay behind bars!  But then again, she seems to really be enjoying herself and her life behind bars.  She has won an "American Idol" type of competition and was the focus of a rap song entitled "Jodi Ann Arias" by rapper "Lefty".  Jodi stated "If this is what it is like to be hated, then keep hating!  I've had so much love coming in my direction I can't even respond to it now."Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for MURDERsode 10.2.  We will be releasing a "shits and giggles" type of episode.  There were some outtakes/bloopers and possibly some interview clips that we couldn't squeeze into MURDERsode 10 as it was already jam packed with information.  We will be posting pictures on the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.  Additionally, we will be posting discussion questions in the Facebook Discussion Group.  We would love to hear from you!  Come on over and share your thoughts!Find us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram) @NvsNpodcast (Twitter) @naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupFind Brittany on all the things:@brittanyschultz09 (Instagram)@brittschultz09 (Twitter)BUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!Check out our sources on the website!

This MURDERsode is part 1 of 2 covering the Jodi Arias case.  In this two-part coverage, we hear from a true crime lover who has become fascinated with the Jodi Arias case.  Heather takes a back seat for this case as Brittany delves into the background of both Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander leading up to the day that they met.  It is truly fascinating to see how completely opposite two individuals can be, yet they still connect with one another on some deeper level.  Jodi and Travis both grew up quite quickly and each had their own struggles along the way.  The manner in which each of them played the cards they were dealt really sheds light on the type of person they each were.  Tune in to hear about their home life, their relationships along the way, and the way fate brought them together.Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for part 2.  We will be posting pictures on the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.  Additionally, we will be posting discussion questions in the Facebook Discussion Group.  We would love to hear from you!  Come on over and share your thoughts!Find us on all the things:@naturevsnarcissism (Instagram)@NvsNpodcast (Twitter)@naturevsnarcissism (Facebook)Nature vs Narcissism Facebook Discussion GroupFind Brittany on all the things:@brittanyschultz09 (Instagram)@brittschultz09 (Twitter)Promos in this episode:The Brothers CommonplaceLeft Behind  BUY COOL SHIT:https://naturevsnarcissism.threadless.com/Don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe!

In this MURDERsode, we discuss Phineas Gage and the effects of a TBI or traumatic brain injury.  We have had several episodes with serial killers/murderers whom experienced injuries to the head or brain and committed heinous crimes later in life.  We wanted to discuss Phineas because there have been neurologists galore whom have used his injury as a focal point to understand brain function and personality changes, etc.  There have also been creationists whom have cited Phineas' injury as evidence to prove their belief/theory that personality is not a product of brain function.  Take a listen; tell us what you think!Special thank you to @huntor27 (Instagram) from the Murder and Such podcast for helping out with this episode!

After the two-part topic for M (Moms who Murder), we thought it would be interesting to cover a case that invloved children who murder.  Of course, one of the first cases that popped into my brain was the James Bulger case.  I collaborate with Warbaby from the Murderous Minors: Killer Kids Podcast to break down this case and discuss some of the fascinating details surrounding it.  Join us for the ride and be aware that this is not for the faint of heart.  Two children abducted, beat, and killed another young child in this case.  Robert Thompson and Jon Venebles were ruthless, heartless, and methodical in their scheme.We thought the perfect release date would be today, February 12, 2018 as it is the anniversary of baby James' brutal murder.Promos in this episode:Murderous Minors: Killer KidsThe Fiercely Altered Perspective Podcast - COMING MARCH 2018!

Episode 13: M; Part 1 (Moms who Murder)
3524
Episode 13 focuses on two mothers whom of which killed their children as well as others.  This is only part 1 of 2, so we covered Marie Noe and Belle Gunness.  Marie Noe killed 8 of her 10 children via suffocation per court documents.  Her other 2 children died as well, but these deaths were not ruled homicide.  This case is odd for many reasons, but the most intriguing part is the fact that she wasn’t convicted until she was about 70 years old.  Belle Gunness, on the other hand, was said to have killed upwards of 40 people, including her own children.  She even faked her own death when she set her barn on fire in order to collect insurance money.  She would place ads in the classifieds in order to lure her victims with the promise of her love and farm.  Her motive for all of the killings was to collect insurance money.

MURDERsode 6: Barkley Marathons (with Liz)
3001
HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY!MURDERsode 6 discusses the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. from a different perspective.  MarvELIZbish  and I examine this case from the side of the killer, James Earl Ray.  We provide some background information on Ray and what lead him to prison in the Appalachian Mountains located in Tennessee.  This is where the Barkley Marathon comes into play.  Ray escaped from prison and spent 55 hours in the Appalachian Mountains…only traveling a total of 8 miles!!!  This gave Gary Cantrell the idea to create a 100-mile marathon and allotting 60 hours for each marathoner to complete the course.  Tune in to find out how difficult Gary made this course!Please note: in the episode we mistakenly say 58 and 59 minutes instead of 58 and 59 hours when discussing the people who have completed the marathon.NETFLIX FILM: https://www.netflix.com/title/80076413  Find us on all the things and join our Facebook Discussion Group!   Want to be a guest?  Email us your stories and suggestions: naturevsnarcissism@gmail.com!

For our Christmas MURDERsode, Rachelle stopped by and we discussed three cases of murder that occurred on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  Our first case is about the Dayton Killing Spree from 1992 where a group of young adults; calling themselves the “Downtown Posse”, decided that it would be fun to run around the city of Dayton, Ohio killing random individuals.  The second case we discuss is the Lawson Family Massacre which occurred on a North Carolina farm in 1929.  The father shot and killed his wife and 6 of his seven children on Christmas Day, before taking his own life.  The final murder case we discuss is the Covina Massacre which took place in Covina, California in 2008.  An ex-husband of one of the Ortega family members decided to dress as Santa Claus and shoot up the family Christmas party, before setting the house ablaze and taking his own life.Follow us on Twitter @NvsNpodcastFollow us on Instagram @naturevsnarcissism Like us on Facebook  Nature vs Narcissism

EPISODE 5: E (EARLE NELSON, ED KEMPER, & ED GEIN)
3639
In episode 5, we discuss not one, not two, but three serial killers!  These serial killers all fall within similar categories as one another.  For instance, they all performed acts of necrophilia on their victims... #NecrophiliaSoundsAllTooFamilia.  This seems to be a theme among many of the serial killers that we’ve covered thus far.  Why do you think that is?  What causes this urge in someone?  Is it a mental health issue?  Is it a nurture issue?  Or is it narcissism?If you would like to discuss this case, please join our discussion on the Nature vs Narcissism Discussion Facebook Group.
