A well-balanced podcast of smart and detailed research and utter hilarity. The only complaint I have is that I didn't find them sooner.

Dallas based comedians and friends, Christie Wallace and Heather McKinney, focus on a different true crime, cult, or creepy topic each week "and chat all things sinister in this funny and well-researched podcast." (Marie Claire, 2020)

Episode Date
Episode 112: The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
1:14:26
The gorgeous architecture and intricate stonework hide a century’s worth of abuse and horrors in this now-abandoned facility.

NXIVM Revisited (Re-release)
1:44:43
Hey everyone! We're taking the week off, but we'll be back next week with an all new episode. We decided to re-release this episode since the new HBO docuseries "The Vow" has propelled this story back into the news. You can also head over to our Patreon for some bonus content like our weekly mixed bags and monthly minisodes. Thanks so much & keep it creepy! Self-Help. Personal Growth. Life-improvement.

Episode 111: The Georgia Guidestones
1:13:49
Imposing and majestic, these stone slabs were placed mysteriously on a mountain in 1980 by an anonymous group. The words inscribed on them seemed innocent at first.

Episode 110: Lady Wonder, Psychic Horse
1:05:03
A horse is a horse, of course, but what if a horse could give you the answers to all of life's questions?

Introducing Smoke Screen: Fake Priest
9:46
Father Ryan was a popular priest who spent the last thirty years traveling the Midwest swindling millions of dollars out of people where he used the money to enrich himself, spend away, and declare bankruptcy whenever outed for falsifying his identity. Despite this, only once did law enforcement officially charge Father Ryan with crimes related to his church. But even then, he managed to essentially win the case. He’s now free and working on his next con. Smoke Screen: Fake Priest from Neon Hum Media, is a new documentary podcast hosted by Alex Schuman, a news reporter from the Midwest, that has been chasing Father Ryan’s story for years. The craziest part is that Alex also gets an exclusive sit-down interview with Ryan himself and in it, the Fake Priest reveals a shocking secret. Make sure to subscribe and follow Fake Priest now to find out what the shocking secret is. To listen to the show, just search for Smoke Screen: Fake Priest in Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to your podcasts.

Episode 106: The Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist
1:06:24
Unscrupulous thieves are willing to steal anything of value they can get their hands on, and the underground market for this sweet product is something beyond imagination.
