Charles Dederich’s sanctuary for those fighting drug addiction had morphed in its first decade of existence. It expanded from helping those with substance issues to becoming a utopian community with a growing list of business assets and resources. With its leader running things like a corporation, Synanon residents soon found their every hour accounted for, but they had no idea what was in store for their own futures or the future of their children.

A full scale, multi-million dollar search for MH370 was in progress, but there was no sign of the lost jet in the wilds of the Indian Ocean. Then, by chance, a piece of the aircraft was located on a French island. More debris was found along an enormous expanse of coastline. But the physical evidence only seemed to spur on more theories, and now, 10 years later, the search might begin again. This week’s episode is The Disappearance of Flight MH370 - Part 2.

It was a simple Raggedy Anne doll, given to a young woman on her birthday. Its unusual behavior first elicited amusement that quickly turned to horror.

re the last story (with the audio): Loch Carrie isn't that far from RAF Lossiemouth, one of the busiest RAF bases in the UK, and the RAF does a LOT of training over those "middle of nowhere" parts of Scotland. Even if planes weren't readily visible, that kind of sound can travel long distances in the topography of the Highlands. I know the audio wasn't that good -- but I thought 'military jets' the instant I heard it. (And I've heard a LOT of military jets in my time!) 😁

I used to work as a caregiver for 3 years and worked with many dementia residents, and there was only 1 resident who had her phone taken away. She watched TV all day, and whenever a commercial came on saying stuff like "If you experienced/were involved with/worked at X, you might be entitled to compensation!" Every time, without fail, she'd call the number and say she was. She would also trying buying random stuff off the TV by calling the numbers. Her brother eventually removed her phone.

This episode discusses one of many reasons why I will absolutely demand to be cremated when I die. and placed in a small little grave, preferably in one of those walls at cemeteries where a bunch of the cremated people are. Takes up less room, no chance of being turned into a zombie someday, I'm not as gross. And other reasons. It's a win win! I don't want my meat sack sitting around taking up space after I die.

I love that Christie hates Jeff as much as I do. 😜 I viscerally reacted to him within 10 seconds of watching the documentary. Great episode and I love when you do cult episodes!

I never thought I'd hear someone say "downsized" in reference to dismembering a body, but here we are. Literally made me stop and stare at my car radio in horror for a sec. I don't know why it's so messed up to me, but it is.

God Stephanie is a fucking hero and champ. Also 100% me lol. I've never fired a gun at someone, but if there's a person on or near our property who should NOT be there, I immediately go into "you best fuck off RIGHT NOW" mode and get super defensive. I'll stand outside and stare at them with my arms crossed, turn on the porch light at night and stare at them out the front door for a minute so they get the hint, yell at them to ask what the hell are they doing, etc. I've literally posted up against some coyotes out in our pasture at 3 am in pajamas with nothing to protect me but my yelling and stubbornness. Thankfully the coyotes around here are whimps when it comes to people and are even afraid of our cows most of the time, so they raaaan. But I found em out there while checking on the cows, cuz it was calving season, and I'd be damned if I let them get near our sheep up closer to the house. I'd never shoot one unless it was actively attacking one of our animals, but I'm also not afrai

It's funny that you guys mention pagers and how they're probably not around anymore. My last job I left a month ago relied on them. It was an assisted living facility, and that's how is caregivers knew which residents were calling if we weren't at the monitor. The building had 3 stories, so having a pager was extremely useful for when a call went off and you weren't near a monitor. I'm almost 25 and I only know how to work a pager after working there for 1 year and 8 months.

As someone who's a massive nerd about dino stuff and has a pet peeve of people calling stuff dinos when they aren't (I don't shit on the person but I'm always like...okay. Listen. That statement gave me so much pain. Let me teach ya some stuff about real dinos), this episode was both hilarious and painful lol. Not everyone knows the difference between dinos and other reptiles, but still...it hurts. I certainly laughed, but it hurts. But hey, at least yall got the "Turkeys are dinos" part right, since all modern birds are dinos. But only through relation, since they're direct decendants. Otherwise their lifestyle goes against bird classifications. But still. Okay I'll shut up now so I don't go too far off the rails into extreme rambling lol.
