Nature vs Narcissism
Nature vs Narcissism
Heather Wright
Nature vs Narcissism is a true crime/comedy podcast based in Cincinnati, Ohio where Heather and her guests discuss true crimes and the narcissists who commit them. Sometimes we have alcohol and sometimes things get weird. Relaunching on our 4th PodBirthday (Oct 22, 2021), the structure changed a lot. Every episode is different and every episode is entertaining! We will delve into whether we think nature made the criminals commit these heinous acts, or if it's simply their narcissism getting the best of them. Keep in mind, this podcast is strictly for entertainment purposes and is in no way a professional diagnosis of the subjects discussed.

Charles Starkweather & Caril Ann Fugate (Part 1)
On January 28, 1958, Charles Starkweather, a 19-year-old high-school dropout from Lincoln, Nebraska and his 14-year-old girlfriend, Caril Ann Fugate, kill a Lincoln businessman, his wife and their maid, as part of a murderous crime spree that began a week earlier and would ultimately leave 11 people and 2 dogs dead.The killer couple’s deadly road trip, which generated enormous media attention and a massive manhunt, came to an end the following day, when Starkweather and Fugate were arrested near Douglas, Wyoming. The crimes later inspired a slew of books, movies and music, including Terence Malick’s 1973 film “Badlands,” starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek, and Bruce Springsteen’s 1982 song “Nebraska.”------------For this episode, I stuck to the dates and the facts that we knew about them and their criminal life. In part 2, We will delve more into our thoughts regarding the pair’s crimes, behavior, the discrepancies between their stories, and the pop culture around this case.So, join us tomorrow for Part 2 - where Lily (author of Teen Killers Club) and I will do a deep dive discussion about the case, the people involved, our thoughts regarding nature vs nurture, and much more.

Bloody Bender's Clan (Part 1)
We’ve talked about another clan…Sawney Beane’s clan. That massive 48-incestuous member family of human hunting, flesh eating, cannibal killers. But that family was located off the Galloway coast in Scotland. And, if you’ve listened to part 2 of that - then you know our feelings about that family.So, we will move on. On to another clan. One that originated in the USofA. This family is known as America’s first family of Serial Killers. Again, not one of Brittany’s favorite topics…but I’m gonna reel her in on this one, I promise! Their story begins much like all the other families of that time period. We’re at a time in US history when the Homestead Act of 1862 just went into effect. October of 1870 - five families move to this Osage area and settle around 7 miles from where the city of Cherryvale would be established later on, in 1880. One of these families was, yup, you guessed it, the Benders. A family of 4; Ma, Pa, Jr. and Kate. And they moved onto a 160 acre property facing the Osage Trail.They ended up using canvas to spit their ONE ROOM cabin into two rooms. The back room remained as a sort of living quarters for the family. The front section, however, was converted into a general store, kitchen, and dining area where those who were passing through could grab a warm meal, some dry goods to take with them along their travels, or a good night’s rest. This was known as Bender Inn. But they definitely wouldn’t receive 5 stars on Yelp, that’s for sure.To earn money…and apparently thrills…Sr. and Ma ran this crude ramshackle killer hotel of sorts, with their Jr. and Kate. Fun! A family affair! Now, although the number isn’t quite as high as the Beane clan’s numbers; there were still more than a dozen travelers who never made it out of that hotel.----Check back tomorrow for Part 2!Sources will be up on the website soon.

Sawney Beane's Clan (Part 1)
“According to legend, Sawney Beane was a fifteenth-century Scottish peasant who grew fed up with farming and turned to highway robbery. With his hard-bitten common law wife, he holed up in a seaside cavern on the Galloway coast and sired a large brood of children. Eventually, through incestuous mating, the family swelled to forty-eight members, who subsisted by preying on unwary travelers, devouring their flesh, and pickling the leftover meat in seawater” (Schechter & Everitt, p.54).The number of victims remains unknown, but estimates are close to 1,000 people who have fallen prey to this vicious clan. Locals were ill-prepared for the truth when they assumed people were being eaten by a pack of wolves, or some supernatural creature…only to find that it was a family who had been hunting, killing, and eating the lost/disappeared.But how did they find out? Well, let’s go into the story a bit more and learn how this family was captured. Or IF they were captured…------For this episode, I gathered as many agreed upon facts as I could, to relay the story. However, are those agreed upon facts actually facts? Or fable? You decide.Join us tomorrow for Part 2 - where Brittany (from Where the Weird Things Are Podcast ) and I will do a deep dive discussion about the case, the people involved, the holes that have been poked in this story throughout history, our thoughts regarding nature vs nurture, and much more. Tune in and join the conversation on Facebook!Until next time; stay inside, stay alive.
