Who Killed Marilyn Monroe?

2023-01-2701:17:053

Even if you've never seen her films or know her by name, you will almost certainly recognize Marilyn Monroe. This famous Hollywood icon rose to global fame as a model, actress, and socialite -- only to die, officially from an overdose, at the young age of 36. And ever since that day, people around the world have spent decades asking whether there's something more to the official story: Who killed Marilyn Monroe?They don't want you to read our book.: https://static.macmillan.com/static/fib/stuff-you-should-read/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In the 1980s crime journalist Phil Stanford dove into the decadent and dangerous world of Miami just as the city was becoming the cocaine- and murder capital of the United States. His path would place him in the crosshairs of a federal investigation focusing on a mysterious and controversial drug smuggling pilot who claimed to be an operative of the American government- all while flaunting his extensive illicit activity. Murder in Miami traces the connection between the murder of a missing Miami private investigator to the sprawling roots of an international money laundering scheme as Stanford tries to make sense of his role in a surreal story of spies, smugglers, killers and corruption.

Could airplanes be haunted?

How To Be A Skeptic

How To Be A Skeptic

2023-01-1801:09:49

There's a lot of information out there these days -- and, unfortunately, a lot of it isn't true. But how can we learn to discern fact from fiction? In today's episode, Ben, Matt and Noel explore the basis of critical thought and skepticism, and how your own brain can conspire against you in your search for the truth. They don't want you to read our book.: https://static.macmillan.com/static/fib/stuff-you-should-read/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The rumors are true -- the US government has multiple, highly-fortified shelters and compounds dotting the American landscape, staffed and fully prepared to protect the President and other federal or state officials from widespread disease, natural disasters, nuclear war and more. But how do these things get built? Where are they and -- perhaps most importantly -- what happens to everyone else when the bombs hit? Join the guys as they interview Garrett M. Graff, the author of "Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself — While the Rest of Us Die."They don't want you to read our book.: https://static.macmillan.com/static/fib/stuff-you-should-read/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

It's a story you might not have heard much about in the global west. While the world has eyes on the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, another international border may be on the brink of exploding into open war. For decades the nuclear-capable nations of China and India have quietly been waging a dispute high in the Himalayas -- a conflict fought with sticks, stones and hand-to-hand combat to determine a border. Problem is, neither side ever agreed to a border in the first place. Instead, they call it the "Line of Actual Control."

Humanity has always had one biological mission: to grow and expand its population. And, since the days of antiquity, great thinkers have been terrified by the idea that, one day, there will simply be too many people on the planet.

As the investigation into the brutal death of the Shermans dragged on, seemingly with no solid leads, the public and members of the Sherman family grew increasingly disturbed. Both the authorities and the family searched desperately for clues -- and the court of opinion began drawing conclusions of its own. Could a business rival of Barry Sherman's have ordered a hit? Could a foreign government be involved? What should we make of the accusations levied against Barry Sherman's own son?

In 2017, Canadian billionaires Barry and Honey Sherman were discovered dead in their Toronto-area mansion, in a gruesome tragedy that remains unsolved in the modern day. Police initially declared the case a murder-suicide -- a conclusion no one found accurate. In the first part of this two-part series, Ben, Matt and Noel dive into the troubling details of this crime, from the initial investigation up to the profoundly disturbing details of how the murders were carried out, all leading to a single, still-unanswered question: Who killed the Shermans, and why?They don't want you to read our book.: https://static.macmillan.com/static/fib/stuff-you-should-read/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

i love this show. 90% of the time that I listen to podcasts, it's STDWYTK. Idk why it effects me so much, but I have an actual anxiety / panic attack because I am worried that it won't be the three of you. whenever I start an episode it says that someone is on adventures or whatever it's just kind of bums me out since something that makes this podcast so good is how the three of you interact with each other.

1. all greta did was bodyshame tate about his genitalia, which is hypocritical considering she called out people fat shaming, im interested to know what the difference is? 2. You should have said allegedly people trafficking, hes been arrested not convicted so if he's not guilty he could sue you 3. Matt you have the worst fake laugh ever 4. The pizza box comment was ok.

Haim died at his home in his mother's arms for pneumonia. I believe Feldman was SA but everything he's said about Haim are lies. Feldman was friends with Dominic Brascia (CH only abuser) until he died & Marty till he started speaking out & Ron Jeremy and has had allegations against his own self.

It seems as though Tom Delonge has decided to grace the music world with his presence by rejoining blink-182. I'm curious what you guys think about this and what this could mean regarding his UFO career

How could you possibly say Blue Lives Matter is missing the point because police aren't the ones getting killed? Are you even aware police murders are up 59% in 2022? Absolute joke
