In honor of our one-year podversary, a special story: Hackers in the '90s.LifeWorld sources:
Chloe Ayling was a British tabloid and glamor model with a story of abduction that is too Hollywood to be true... or is it?LifeWorld sources:
This one is heavy and dark, but an important case. In 2014, Payton Leutner survived a horrific ordeal at the hands of her two closest friends, all in the name of a meme.Sources:
In this environment of social distancing and telehealth, it's important to know... what exactly is telehealth, anyway?LifeWorld sources: token: LiOVOfukirEMZLhkIT8r
What better (or... worse?) way to acknowledge a global pandemic than with a discussion of four of the more destructive computer viruses?LifeWorld Sources:
Some stories are awful on so many fronts, we lose track of the core weirdness of the story. Shelly Chartier combined catfishing, matchmaking, child pornography and Call of Duty all into one bizarre experience...Sources:
We wish this was a unique story, or even unusual. Instead, this is more an illustration of what the larger pornography industry is like at the moment. It's not as fun as you think.LifeWorld Sources:
Tickling is for kids, and fun, and laughs, not something that could be capitalized on and exploited... right?Sources:
Eddie Tipton kept a pretty low profile for the first four decades of his life... which is a pretty good idea when you're rigging the lottery.Sources at
In 2017, police were called to a house of a suspected murder after an anonymous call. Unfortunately, it was a false report with deadly consequences.All sources:
For the first time, LifeWorld covers a fatality, in a review of the 1999 death of Bruce Miller that the media labelled "The Internet's First Murder." His wife, Sharee Miller, was convicted of the crime, even though she had an alibi.All sources:
How much money would have to go missing from your Citibank account for you to notice? $4? $40? $4,000,000? In the '90s, Vladimir Levin was willing to find out.All sources:
From Phishing to Nigerian Princes. We cover some of the popular scams that you could be affected by, and a real world example of someone who has.All sources:
The Lizard Squad involves neither lizards nor squads...It does involve black hat hackers, DDOS attacks, and other bad online behavior. All sources:
The lives of 15-year-old hacker extraordinaire Ian Restril and 25-year-old journalist Stephen Glass intersected in 1998, in a particularly unusual manner.All sources:
Kevin Mitnick was not the first hacker, nor did he make the most money. But he was one of the earliest, and the ending of his story might mean he was one of the most successful.All sources:
Carolyn Owlett, an original member of the British girl group The 411, found herself the target of an unusual case of identity fraud / catfishing / potential obsession. What was it, really?And who, exactly, is our new announcer??All sources:
Courtney and Steven Allen, a married couple from the pacific northwest just trying to live their lives while unwinding with some online games. They found themselves making a new friend online, through Todd Zonis, before facing the reality of what trouble that could bring. In this case we cover online friendships, cyber harassment, and revenge porn.All sources:
Belle Gibson, a social chameleon that overcame the hand that she was dealt in life. A source of inspiration in how to better oneself, until it's found that they aren't. In our first case we look at how someone was able to use social media to create an empire of self help, before the truth brought everything crashing down.All sources:
Kate (Ignorance Was Bliss) and Derek (Rolling Misadventures) decide to take a look at crimes that could have only happened with the invention of the internet. They discuss the premise of doing a true crime podcast that focuses more on the tech side of life and how they want to approach cases that are less centered around murder.All sources:
