Wicked Part Of Me
Since 1849 there have been 110 executions in Washington State. In recent years, capital punishment was abolished in the state, however, not in time to save the lives of the three men we’ll discuss today. In today’s case, Emily tells you the events that resulted in the three most recent executions in Washington State. Three men who were deemed too monstrous to keep their lives; one child rapist, one violent repeat offender and one torturer. This week’s episode is brought to you from SimpliSafe. Great protection.

Systemic racism might be a new term for a lot of people, but today we’re going to dive into the judicial side of it. In this episode, Alisha will hold our hands through Oregon’s historically racist laws, but this time it’s to celebrate their undoing! By revisiting the infamous murders of a couple caught up in the Portland mob, we’ll learn about racist roots as to why this law was created in the first place, the lives it affected for nearly a century and how its being overturned will continue to affect Oregonians that are in the appeal process.

Tell Everyone On This Train I Love Them
Lately, it has felt that every day brings new tragedy and heartbreak. The loss of lives from civilians standing up to racists and white supremacists is nothing new; it has been going on for generations before us. It’s just that now we can watch it unfold live in the palm of our hands. Today’s story is one of those heartbreaks. The story of citizens that wanted to stand up for what is right and were met with hate and death. When Demetria Hester, Micah Fletcher, Rick Best, and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche stood up against a coward, they had no idea that for some, their lives would change. For others, it would end.

Number 5
In a span of three months, dozens of crimes took place along the west coast’s Interstate Five. What was seemingly multiple culprits committing burglary, rape, and murder turned out to be just one man. Law enforcement agencies worked together to share information and with the help of numerous witnesses they put together at least over 20 sketches of the face of a man dubbed the “I-5 Bandit”, a man who would eventually be known as the “I-5 Killer”.

Every state has had marching in the streets. It may feel overwhelming at times, but it feels equally promising that change is inevitable. Today we’ll be telling the story of Aaron Campbell, a young, black, unarmed man that was shot in the back and killed by Portland Police. How a lack of training and communication cost him his life. How the officer fought to be put back on the force. And how that same officer claimed there was never another option. Additionally, Alisha will walk us through some of the statistics surrounding police brutality, why the Black Lives Matter movement should matter to everyone, and what you can do to help keep it moving forward.

Vote for Murder in the Rain for Best of Portland Podcast Alaska is a land of wild tundra, making it an ideal home for adventurers and hunters alike. In the early 1980’s, a hunter would become Alaska’s first known serial killer. Instead of the big game he was known for decorating his walls with, he turned his sight to the vulnerable population of sex workers and indegious women. Through the bravery of a survivor and the tenacity of detectives, Robert Hansen’s second trophy collection would be discovered as would his terrifying secrets. This week’s promo is from Morbidology.
