Epi 35: Alien Abductions
Today we're discussing two landmark alien-abduction cases - Antônio Villas Boas and Barney and Betty Hill.Antônio Villas Boas was a Brazilian farmer who claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957. The night he was abducted, he was picked and probed, gassed in a trapped room and ended the night having sex with a super hottie alien and getting her pregnant.  Although his story sounds silly as hell; Boas took it to the grave.  In addition, the amount of radiation that Boas had absorbed after that event, still confuses medical experts and physicists to this day.On the night of Sept. 19, 1961, Barney and Betty Hill were driving on a rural highway to their home in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. On an isolated road snaking through the White Mountains, the couple later recounted, they saw a bright object that appeared to be following their car. They arrived home around 5 a.m., unable to account for two hours of the night but feeling that something terrible had happened to them.  It took a while, but the Hills eventually remembered the life-altering event that befell them on that lonely stretch of highway: They’d been abducted by fucking aliens.Check out our website!Contact us!
Epi 34: Familicides
A familicide is a technical term for “family annihilation” which basically refers to the killing of one’s entire fucking family.  Today, we're each sharing a horrifically disturbing story of a familicide.  Happy Friday!First, we're talking about the super recent familicide of the Watt's family.  Last year, asshole Chris Watt's, murdered his pregnant wife Shanann and two daughters, (4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste), and then stuffed their bodies in oil tanks.  Although Watts initially denied having any involvement with his wife’s and daughters’ deaths, he later confessed.Then, we're talking about the New Zealand Bain family murders.  After nearly a quarter-century, this whole case still confuses tf out of us. Either Robin Bain killed all but one of his family and then himself, or his son David murdered his parents and three siblings, in June of 1994. Initially convicted of the murders, David was found not guilty in 2009 at a second trial after spending 13 years in prison.Check out our website!Contact us!
