In the late 1960's, James Baker transitioned from the spiritually-minded owner of a vegetarian restaurant on Los Angele's Sunset Strip to Father Yod - the leader of a cult based on the belief that he was, pretty much, god-in-the-flesh. The cult was also based in a lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock n'roll. And also vegetarianism. Bust mostly sex and rock n'roll. Roughly 150 counter-culture flower children lived together, first in LA, and then in Hawaii, giving themself super cult-y, crystally names like Moonbeam the Aquarian. And then Father Yod lost his faith and the whole cult went down in a tragic hang-gliding accident. It's a strange story and I enjoyed telling it today, on Timesuck!

Time travel! Today on Timesuck we suck time itself! Will we ever be able to go back and kill Hitler? Or go to the future and visit a world of teleportation and sex robots? Is time travel scientifically possible? What does the science community currently understand about it? Is there any validity to the claims of many who already believe they've traveled through time? (Or at least claim to believe that.) We go all over the place in a fun, light-hearted, and informative romp through the space time continuum. My new horror podcast Scared to Death is ALIVE!

Josephine Baker. What a meatsack!! Such an incredible person. The modern world's first internationally famous black, female celebrity. She lived a lot of life. She was born into extreme poverty in St Louis. She overcame incredible odds to become a touring performing as a young teenager, working her way into the Philadelphia theater scene, then making it big on Broadway. Then she made it France and became a HUGE star. She broke racial barriers, became a spy and war hero for France, became famous for adopting children of various races in attempt to show the world we all can get along. And she did so, so much more!

JonBenet Ramsey. It's been over twenty years since the six-year-old was found murdered in her Boulder, Colorado home and ever since, investigators and the general public alike have been wondering who killed her? Was it an intruder? Some deranged pedophile? Someone wanting money from her rich parents? Or was it a family member? Did her nine-year-old brother kill her? Did her father? Her mother? Some combination of the three? And - why has the public been SO fascinated with her death for so long? We look into a lot of questions and come up with as many answers as this topic will allow, today, on Timesuck. My new horror podcast Scared to Death is ALIVE!

Mormonism. BIG topic today! Oh my HECK! We talk today about the history of Mormonism - a religion born in America. We'll go over the life of its founder Joseph Smith and investigate his claims of revelations. We'll look into the beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We go over the church's polygamist past and also examine how polygamy continues in fundamentalist derivatives of Mormonism, such as the FLDS, lead by imprisoned pedophile, Warren Jeffs. We get interesting and controversial, today, on Timesuck. Donating $3000 this month to the nonprofit - Youth on Record. Helping at-risk youth graduate and build careers in the arts.

Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole committed at least four murders, or maybe five. They were, collectively, convicted of seventeen. But they definitely didn't kill some of the people they were convicted of killing. They would confess to over 600. And they for sure didn't kill all of them. But they may have killed others they never confessed too. They were definitely murderers and they were definitely liars and they seemed to enjoy lying more than murdering. And unlike most criminals, they loved to lie about crimes they definitely didn't commit. They were terrible men who wanted to be known as pure evil men. And their tale is a strange one, a dark one, and a fascinating one. Join me as I try to separate dark fact from even darker fiction, today, on Timesuck!

The only thing Leonardo da Vinci wasn't good at was raising his kids. And only because he didn't have any. He seemed to master just about everything else. He may have known more than any other human had ever known up until the time of his life, the late 15th and early 16th centuries. He may have been the smartest human being to ever walk the Earth, including anyone who was born before or after him. He was an incredible painter, engineer, scientist, inventor, sculptor, military strategist, and more. He epitomizes the term "Renaissance Man" and we suck the life of arguably the greatest export from the Italian Renaissance ever, today, on Timesuck.

Jesse James! Perhaps the most notorious outlaw in wild west history. Yip, yip, yaw! But do you know why he was so infamous? Do you understand the social climate that helped create him? Do you know what dirty deeds he committed to become so infamous? Today, we learn a lot about how the chaos of the Civil War created a lot of outlaws, and a number of the most ruthless of these men ended up in the James-Younger gang - easily the most "successful" wild west gang there was, if you count robbing one train, stagecoach, and bank right after another - for over a decade - as being "successful."

The Ninth Circle Cult! Is there actually a group of "global elites" hunting children in private European forests, raping and sacrificing children to Satan? Is the Pope the leader? That's what some people on the web think. In addition to exploring Ninth Circle lore we'll also look into the Catholic Church's history of pedophilia and also into the recent Jeffrey Epstein case. Do child sex rings exist? We go all over the place to explore the history of the public's fascination with sex rings and look into which ones are real and which ones are not, today, on Timesuck!

Infectious disease. The number one murderer of humankind. By far! Nasty little viruses and other pathogens have killed more people than any other single cause of death each and every year prior to the advent of arguably the greatest invention ever - the vaccine. Vaccines have prevented millions and millions of deaths. So why are more and more people choosing NOT to vaccinate? And what are the repercussions of this decision for us all? The history of infectious disease, vaccinations, and the anti-vaccination movement explored and explained in the most important Timesuck yet. Hail Nimrod!

Lost technologies! Greek fire, Damascus steel, the pyramid building abilities of ancient Egypt, India's flying vimanas, Rome's miracle medicine, the Antikythera Mechanism and so much more. We look into various claims of ancient technologies lost to time. Did they exist in the first place? Were they in any way superior to modern equivalents? A lot of historical mysteries explored on a Timesuck that bounces all over the place and was a blast to research and record. Hail Nimrod!

Hinker du teh hoingy boingy! Uff da! Uff da! Tiddly winks teh dingy thingy. Don't worry - not all of today's show is in Norwegian (and neither is that gibberish). Talking about Norway's infamous export, serial killer Belle Gunness, today on the Suck. It seems as if she had begun to operate a "murder farm" in Laporte Indiana at the dawn of the twentieth century. We'll never know exactly how many people Belle killed, but we do know a lot about her story. Motivated by money, she sacrificed both strangers and family to accomplish her goal of becoming wealthy and lured an unknown number of men to Indiana under the false pretense of buying into her farm... and then they disappeared forever. More true crime today on Timesuck!

OJ Simpson. It's been twenty-five years since his *alleged* murder of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. You've heard about the murders. You've heard about the trial. But how much do you really know about "The Juice"?

Serial killer Robert Hansen abducted and killed at least seventeen women and hunted many of them down in the Alaskan wilderness in the 1970s and 80s around Anchorage. This bakery owner and sport hunter was convicted in 1984 after confessing to killing seventeen women, mostly dancers and prostitutes, during a twelve-year reign of terror. Hansen led a very strange dual life - a happily married, donut-making father of two, while at the same time frequenting Anchorage's strip joints looking for young women to kidnap, rape, and then sometimes also hunt and kill.

Less than a week after the 4th of July, we Suck into the birth of the United States of America. We glance at some of the war's important battles and important figures, but, more importantly, we dig deep into the events leading up to the Revolutionary War. What went down between King George and the Founding Fathers that left colonists feeling like going to war with arguably the most powerful empire in the world was a good idea? How important was George Washington to America's eventual victory? If not for the French and Indian War two decades prior to the Revolutionary War, would the United States be part of the British Commonwealth today? We take a break from true crime and dig deep into US history, today, on Timesuck!

On April 19th, 2008, forty-two year-old Elisabeth Fritzl helped her seventy-three year-old father Josef carry their nineteen year-old unconscious daughter Kerstin - yes, THEIR daughter, you read that right - out of a small, windowless cellar that Kerstin had literally spent her entire life inside up until this point. That day, Elisabeth felt sunlight on her skin for the first time in twenty-four years. For over two decades, she had been imprisoned and continually raped by her own father. And she lived to tell about it. Her story and the tale of her monster-father is insane. Hard to believe it actually happened. But it did. And we suck it all today on Timesuck.

Since 1971, well over thirty women have disappeared along a fifty mile-long patch of I-45 between Houston and Galveston. Some refer to this stretch of the Gulf Freeway as a highway to Hell, and to the marshy land around it as "The Texas Fields." Initially, the press only referred to one twenty-five acre patch of land in League City, an abandoned oil field, as the Texas Killing Field after the remains of two women were found in early 1986 on the same day. And both bodies were found near where a third body had been uncovered in 1984. And then more bodies turned up on and around this old oil field. Who killed these women? And what does today's tale have to do with Matthew McConaughey? Find out on today’s true crime smorgasbord mystery edition of Timesuck!

Really hope you enjoy this one. One of my favorite episodes so far. Such a big topic that touches so many lives. What is the history of homelessness in America? Why are people homeless now? Who is homeless now? What is being done to help the homeless? What COULD be done to help? I touch on mental health issues, substance abuse, economic conditions, good ol' fashioned laziness, and more. I also share a lot of personal homeless encounters and really try to look at this issues from as many sides as possible, and as fairly as possible, on this little edition of Timesuck that feels almost, dare I say it, important.

The Darwin Awards! Meatsacks removing themselves from being able to procreate or from the planet entirely in the most easily avoidable ways. Natural selection at work! We make light of a lot of death today, and also use this topic as an excuse to look into evolution theory and the man who put it on the map - Charles Darwin. Is evolution more than just "a theory"? Can we prove it worked? Did we really evolve from monkeys? Did a guy in Australia really try to kill a tiger with his bare hands after some karate lessons? Did a guy accidentally kill himself by pounding two bottles of sherry via his "mouth butt"? We're all over the place today on another edition of Timesuck!

Albert Fish. The Boogey Man. The Werewolf of Wysteria. The Brooklyn Vampire. The Gray Man. The Moon Maniac. A sexual sadist, sexual masochist, kidnapper, con artist, cannibal, torturer, murderer, and the kinkiest mofo I have ever read about. This tale is equal parts dark and captivating. Fish is the train wreck you can't stop staring at. After his capture in 1934, he would claim to have molested and raped around 400 children. He also admitted to killing three children and was sent to the electric chair for one of their deaths. He blew 1930s minds with tales of cannabalism and sexual depravity. If you're a true crime consumer, this Suck is definitely for you!

Today we talk about Vietnam. Do you know how the Vietnam war began? What events really led up to it? You will after this episode. You'll learn about centuries of foreign occupation at the hands of the Chinese and the French, and how colonial oppression led to a willingness to accept communist ideology. Communism may not be fun, but neither is being ruled by the French. We go over battles and the American counterculture's response to the battles. A LOT of info packed into this one. One of America's wars that wasn't technically a war, explored, today on this good morning, Vietnam edition of Timesuck!

Did Madame Delphine and her Dr. husband really torture their slaves in the most horrific of ways at the now infamous LaLaurie Mansion at 1140 Royal St in the French Quarter of New Orleans? Or are the stories of firefighters walking into a burning structure in 1834 and finding horribly mutilated bodies just part of New Orleans ghost tour folklore?

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing! Yip, yip, yaw! On July 20th, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, two American astronauts, landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on the moon. The Eagle has landed! And then, some six hours later, Neil became the first human to take one giant leap for mankind. And then Buzz followed Neil onto the moon's surface less than twenty minutes later. OR... did none of that ever happen? Did the several Apollo missions that followed NOT put ten other astronauts on the moon? This is what many people believe - that no one ever stepped foot on the moon. Today we examine a variety of moon landing conspiracies and also learn a lot about why landing on the moon was a cultural priority in the first place. And we go over so much more on this lunar-centric edition of Timesuck! THE GATHERING 2019 - Tickets go on sale HERE April 29th, Noon PST Only 55 tickets total!

Napoleon! A man who knew before he died he would be remembered as being one of the most important European leaders in history - and boy was he right. He's regarded by many military historians as being one the best military strategists of all time. Dude was SUPER hard to beat on the battlefield but he was defeated several times - mostly because pretty much every other nation in Europe joined forces and ganged up on France to defeat him. He'd be born on a little island not bothering anyone and he'd die on a little island not bothering anyone over fifty years later. In between - he'd bother a LOT of people. He'd lead millions to their deaths, rise to rule France not once, but twice, and do so, so, so much more. And he's our topic of the week, here on Timesuck! Donate to our charity of the month!

Former Russian police officer Mikhail Popkov was found guilty on December 10th, 2018 of killing fifty-six people in Siberia. All but one victim were women between the ages of seventeen to thirty-eight. He was given a second life sentence. He already had a life sentence he'd been given in 2015 when he was convicted of murdering twenty-two Russian women. He used his badge for years to lure women into his car, drive them out into the woods, and brutally rape and kill them. And the whole time he was also a devoted husband and father. His family was devastated by his arrest - refusing for years to accept that the man they thought they knew so well could commit the horrible crimes he was convicted of. We travel today to Siberia and piece together a picture of a complete and total sociopath, a man Siberian prosecutors say is “pathologically attracted to killing,” on another Russian serial killer edition of Timesuck.

On October 4th, 1994 the dead bodies of two Solar Temple cult members and their baby are found in Morin Heights, Quebec. All three have been stabbed to death. The baby has had a wooden dagger run through its heart in an obvious ritual killing. Forty-eight other cult members would take their lives that evening. And then another sixteen in 1995. And then five more in 1997. Why? Why did so many cult members take their own lives? What did these people believe in? Madness. They believed in so much madness. And I'll break that madness down and tell the story of the formation and destruction of this strange cult today on Timesuck.

In 1587, Englishman John White led a group of 118 colonists to what was supposed to Roanoke Island. One hundred fifteen of those colonists were never seen again after White returned to England to get word to Sir Walter Raleigh that the colonists desperately needed supplies. On August 18th, 1590, John White returned to Roanoke three years after leaving to get those supplies and found the settlement completely deserted and the word “Croatoan” carved into a fence post. And historians, archaeologists and others have been trying to figure out what happened to those initial settlers ever since.

Andrew Jackson. Seventh president of the United States. First president born to immigrant parents. Only president to serve in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. First president to be a resident of a state other than Massachusetts or Virginia. A hard-nosed son of Scotch-Irish immigrants who was quick to throw down in a duel. He fought in the Revolutionary War at the age of 13 and then fought off a would be assassin with a cane at the age of 68. And then he fought a whole bunch of people in between. First President to be assaulted while in office. First to have someone try and kill him in office. And now, long in the grave, his legacy fights to be known for more than slave-ownership and the infamous Trail of Tears. He was a polarizing man in his lifetime and had been even more polarizing in death. And we suck him today, on Timesuck!

Nikola Tesla. The prototypical "mad scientist". He slept only a few hours a night and devoted his life to science like none-other. A rags-to-riches-to-rags visionary who was a giant in the field of scientific invention, he created the first alternating current (AC) motor and was a pioneer in the field of wireless information transmission. He helped build the world’s first large-scale hydroelectric power plant at Niagara Falls. He even pushed scientific rival Thomas Edison into electrocuting pets to prove that his direct current technology was better and safer than Tesla’s alternating current. It was a AC versus DC, War of Currents nerd fight that lasted over a decade. He was also a strange man who fell in love with a pigeon and once claimed to have created a "death ray".

For centuries, Japan was ruled by a military dictatorship, the Shogunate, and the samurais were the enforcers of this rule. The samurai was soldier, police officer, judge, jury, and executioner. He was the warrior that would rather die than bring dishonor to himself, his family, or his daimyo. His days and ways were highly ritualized. Molded by Buddhist, Confucian, and Shintoist philosophy, his sword was his soul and he carried it with him throughout his days and slept with it by his side throughout his nights. The samurai have a fascinating history and we explore it today, as well as the rise of the Japanese Shogunate, and the life of one of Japan's greatest warriors in this land of the rising sun edition, of Timesuck.  Timesuck is brought to you today by Eero! For free overnight shipping in the US or Canada, visit eero.com, select overnight as the shipping option, then enter TIMESUCK at checkout!

The Children of God cult aka The Family aka The Family International is still around today which is very disturbing considering their twisted origins and disgusting, sexually exploitive doctrinal past. Founded by David "Huge Perv" Berg in 1968 in Huntington Beach, California, they now operate to an unknown degree internationally, basing their existence in a highly sexualized interpretation of Biblical teachings, interpreting God's love as being expressed best through sex. Berg initially took a second wife saying it was God's will, as cult leaders so often do. He then began showing his followers "God's love" first through secret orgies with high-ranking members, then through the demand to share cult member's wives, who were suddenly forbidden to deny male members "God's love". David then commanded female members to spread God's love and do missionary work, which centered around "Flirty Fishing", i.e., having sex with random dudes to encourage them to join the cult. From there, women members, were pushed into "Hooking for Jesus" - outright prostitution. And from there, members were encouraged to show their children "God's love" as outright pedophilia was sanctioned and encouraged, even when it was incestuous. All based on creative Biblical interpretation of course! This people are insane. And you learn all about them in today's fascinating and mind-boggling edition of Timesuck!

On January 22nd, 1987, forty-seven year-old R. Budd Dwyer, Republican State Treasurer of Pennsylvania, held a press conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to address his recent conviction on eleven counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, perjury, and interstate transportation in the aid of racketeering. The married father of two faced up to fifty-five years in prison and a $300,000 fine. He was scheduled to be sentenced the very next day, January 23rd, by a judge who he knew intended to make an example of him to deter other politicians from taking bribes in the future. The journalists gathered expected Budd to resign from his office. Instead, he took out a .357 magnum, put the gun in his mouth, pulled the trigger, and resigned from life. What very specific events led to this tragic decision? Find out, today, on Timesuck!

Dean Arnold Corll. The Candyman Killer. A Texas momma’s boy who first made friends with local kids by handing out candy from his family’s Houston candy store like the absolute creep he was. A man who then groomed a teen boy to be his murder, rape, and torture accomplice and then convinced a second teen boy to also help them; a second boy who would eventually shoot Dean dead. Before getting shot, Dean killed at least twenty-nine Houston area teens between 1970 and 1973, most dying just about the worst death imaginable on his homemade “torture board”.

Well, you asked for it. We got a bunch of emails to do something special for the 100th Monday episode of TImesuck and the main request was to do Timesuck's version of Drunk History. So, the good folks from fantastic restaurant 10/six in Couer d'Alene brought over crawfish etouffee, beignets, whiskey, beer, and mixed up some hurricanes... and I got blackout drunk. I don't start out drunk - it was a steady progression. Started out buzzed for the first sixty minutes or so of the recording and then, well, things get messy. I hope you enjoy it! In 1918 and 1919 (and also in 1910 and 1911), someone or several people terrorized, for the most part, Italian Grocers living in New Orleans with, you guessed it, an axe. Or, rather, with several axes. And razors. And even an iron bar in one incident. Someone was breaking into homes, grabbing the most terrible weapon they could find in the victim's house (usually a meat cleaver/butcher's axe), and giving citizens of New Orleans about the worst wake up call you can imagine. And authorities never figured out who did it. We examine the crimes, we take a fun look into the history of New Orleans, and my wife Lynze steps in and helps me finish the Suck I get to too drunk to complete on my own. I had a great time.

What actually goes on at Area 51? There are two competing narratives. One involves a series of classified Cold War projects involving covert aerial surveillance aircraft and nuclear weapons testing, and then there is the conspiracy-laden, primarily extraterrestrial-based and fascinating UFO lore. So which is it? Or, is it both? We dig into the "official" narrative based primarily on leaked CIA documents and also at conspiracies put forth by various people claiming to have witnessed what actually goes on in and around Area 51, today, on Timesuck.

Werewolves! Awhoooooooo! Shape-shifting creatures of the night with unusual speed, otherworldly strength, lightning fast reflexes, and incredibly heightened senses. Monsters who can be a gentle, thoughtful human being one moment and a feral, wild bloodthirsty beast the next. Sometimes a dark creature associated with vampires and witches, and sometimes and innocent victim of a terrible curse doomed to heed the call of the moon and feast on human flesh, the werewolf has taken many forms throughout the years. Where do these tales come from? We dig into werewolf folklore and share some intense tales of werewolf trials and more today, on a monstrous Timesuck! Seen the summer merch yet?

John Wilkes Booth wasn't some community theater bit player. He wasn't a bartender who did summer theater. He was one of the most famous actors of the day and a member of THE most famous acting family of the 19th century. And he killed the President. He killed the President after putting together several failed plans to kidnap the President. He was a heartthrob dubbed by some theater critics as "the most handsome man in America". Imagine Ryan Gosling or Tom Hardy trying to kill the President today. That is comparable to what Booth did. His story is fascinating! And we Suck it today! Seen the summer merch yet?

Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who escaped his gladiatorial school in Capua with about 70 other gladiators and slaves and then led a slave rebellion against the armies of Rome in the 1st century BCE , commanding a fighting force that grew to an army of 90,000–120,000 strong. We explore his fight and the interesting history of Roman gladiatorial combat in today's Suck. Men (and women!) facing off against each other in arenas, forums, and coliseums in fights that often lasted until severe injury or the death. Insane emperors, trident-wielding warriors, spear-wielding elephants, and so much more in today's tale of Roman debauchery and the man who almost took down a Republic.

Billed now as the Pennhurst Haunted Asylum, Pennhurst was never an asylum. It wasn't a home for the mentally ill when it first opened its doors in 1908. It was a home for epileptics and the intellectually disabled, then called "idiotic" and "feeble-minded". And then it became a home for basically everyone society either didn't want to take care of or didn't know how to take care of. And it soon became severely overcrowded. And then it became both overcrowded and underfunded. And then it became a nightmare for it's "children" (the term its patients were given, whether they were six months old or sixty). Understaffing lead to squalid conditions where people were living and dying covered in their own feces and in wounds given to them by either themselves, other patients, or, in some cases, staff members. The government, after numerous lawsuits, shut Pennhurst down for good in 1987. And today, we look at why things got so bad they felt compelled to do so. And, we examine life for the mentally handicapped today in America. Have things gotten any better? What, as a society and culture, are we supposed to do for and with those who can do for themselves? How do we take care of each other? A lot of hard questions are asked in a thought-provoking edition of Timesuck.

WARNING/DISCLAIMER: This is the most disturbing episode of Timesuck thus far. To the point I considered not releasing it. Maybe it just hit me unusually hard for some reason but the crime scene details are very sexually explicit and haunting. If descriptions of sexual torture trigger you in any way, sit this one out! David Parker Ray, the Toy Box Killer, kidnapped, sexually tortured, and possibly murdered an untold amount of women in the American Southwest in the 1990s (and maybe even earlier than this). We'll never know the full extent of the violence and damage he spread. We do know he created a $100,000 "Toy Box" - a customized metal trailer equipped with a gynecologist's chair, and homemade "sex toys" designed to cut, electrocute, tear, pierce, penetrate, and sodomize victims confined to his trailer with shackles and a metal collar. We know he raped his victims, that his accomplices raped his victims, and that he even forced victims to engage in bestiality. He recorded much of what he did on video. He led a small, Satanic sex cult in the otherwise sleepy, lakeside community of Elephant Butte, NM. He recorded and played a horrific BDSM sexual orientation tape to be played for victims he kidnapped and drugged describing in excruciating detail the horrors that awaited them in the days ahead. The tale of the Toy Box Killer reads like something out of an Eli Roth torture porn script. And we peek into this preposterous darkness in this you never really know what's going on in your neighborhood, fear the darkness edition of Timesuck.

Pancho Villa! Pancho Villa was a revolutionary fighter who despised the wealthy landowners who had subjugated the impoverished farming class, comprised of mostly indigenous people, since long before he was born. He stole from the rich and gave to the poor. He also stole from the rich to fuel the various wars he fought in, all of which had the same goal - to topple Mexico’s existing power structure and redistribute the wealth the upper 1% possessed amongst the poor. He was one of the world’s first movie stars, and he wasn’t an actor. In a way, he was the world’s first reality TV star, because at one point he allowed actual battles he fought in to be filmed. And we’re gonna learn all about him, and a lot about Mexico along the way, in another power to the people edition of Timesuck Want to help Harmony Vellekamp?

The story of the Donner Party is one of the most disturbing tales of western migration during the time of Manifest Destiny, the common 19th-century belief that the United States was destined to expand across the entire continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Well, the destiny of many of the members of the Donner Party was to spread their actual bones around a frozen Sierra Nevada mountain camp as they were eaten by other members of their party. That's what they manifested. Theirs is a fascinating tale of bad decisions that led to much worse decisions that led to, well, cannibalism.

The Knights Templar fought their last stand in the Holy Land (their last proper stand) in Acre in 1291 and shit was epic. They went down, but, they didn't go down easy. And then, less than two decades later, a corrupt French King forced a weak Pope into ending the long reign of the Knights Templar. And by 1312, according to historians, the Order of the Knights of the Temple had been completely dissolved. Or were they!?! Conspiracy theorists say no. They say the Knights have done all kinds of shit since then, like take the Holy Grail to Scotland, or maybe Oak Island.

The Knights Templar was founded in 1119 CE on the principles of chastity, obedience and poverty - but they soon, ironically became immensely wealthy and obedient to almost no one but themselves and the Pope. The Templars financed wars, built castles, ran cities, raised armies, and so much more. From meager beginnings they became as mighty an outfit as existed during the later Middle Ages. They were more powerful, wealthier, and better armed than some entire medieval kingdoms. Today, more than seven hundred years after their demise, the Templars remain an object of fascination. And we do our best to begin the telling of their legendary, awe-inspiring tale, today, on Timesuck!  Seen the summer merch yet? Tank tops, koozies, magnets & more!

The Ma Barker gang robbed bank, after bank, after drugstore, after hardware store, clothing store, Chevy dealership, jewelry store, and still more banks in the early 1930s. They committed more robberies and took more lives than the much more famous Dillinger Gang. The Dillinger Gang was active for less than one year. The Barker-Karpis gang was active from 1931 to 1935. FDR called them out on national radio during one of his famous fireside chats, referring to them as “an attack on everything we hold dear”. FBI Director J Edgar Edgar Hoover described Ma as "the most vicious, dangerous and resourceful criminal brain of the last decade". But, was she really their leader? Or was she just along for the wild ride?

On Tuesday, April 24th, 2018, Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was taken into custody by local police and FBI agents when he stepped outside his Citrus Heights home, a quiet suburb of Sacramento. The man believed to be the East Area Rapist, also known as the Golden State Killer, the Visalia Ransacker, and the Original Night Stalker had finally been captured, forty-four years after his crime spree began. He’d started ransacking over 100 Sacramento area homes in 1974. He’d progressed from burglary to rape by 1976, raping over 50 California women and girls. And he’s believed to have killed for the first time in 1975, killing 12 men and women by 1986. He was a sadistic monster and it's incredible that he was finally apprehended. Learn all about his crimes, his arrest, and the innovative DNA database detective work that was used to finally catch him. Timesuck is brought to you today by AmeriGas!

Edgar Allan Poe did more than write The Raven and look creepy. He also basically invented the modern detective story. He was America's first "master of suspense" according to Stephen King and many other modern authors. He changed the way American authors wrote scary stories. He changed the way authors in general approached their craft, both creatively and business-wise. And yet he died penniless after a lifetime of financial struggle. And he married his thirteen-year-old first-cousin and died a mysterious death at forty. We dig into the life and struggle of America's first master of the scary story and talk about how much easier it is to make a living as an artist today as it was during Poe's time, and so much more, today on Timesuck.

Joan of Arc was BURNED ALIVE on May 30th, 1431 CE, something no one ever aspires to have written on their obituary. She fought to end the Hundred Years' War between England and France on behalf of Charles VII, the King of France she would help crown. How did a rural farmer's daughter with no military training end up in charge of thousands of French soldiers? Why did Charles even allow a seventeen year old girl into the army in an age when women didn't go to war? Prophecies fulfilled, battles fought and won, a heroine captured and then burned alive, and so much more on this Game of Thrones-esque 15th century Timesuck!

An alarming number of Japanese citizens have taken a dark pilgrimage to the Aokigahara forest, more commonly known as Japan’s suicide forest, to end their lives, most commonly by hanging themselves from some of the forest's tree branches.

We’re gonna break down Japan’s suicide dilemma, both within the suicide forest and outside of it - it has one of the highest suicide rates of any country in the world, and look into all sorts of explanations, including some terrifying Japanese paranormal legends, today, on Timesuck .

From August seventh to September tenth, 1888, a crazed killer who came to be known as "Jack the Ripper” terrorized the Whitechapel district of London's impoverished East End.

Gary "The Green River Killer" Ridgway is currently in prison in Walla Walla, Washington, having been convicted of 49 different murders, most of which took place in the early and mid-1980s. It took investigators nearly 20 years to catch this seemingly normal suburban married Seattle-area father and big rig painter by day and young prostitute murdering monster by night. But thankfully, he was caught thanks to the Green River Task Force never giving up. We cover the life and horrible times of the most prolific serial killer in United States history, today, on Timesuck. Thanks for helping us donate $500 to helping fight prostitute victimization!

The Spanish Inquisition started in 1478 and lasted all the way until 1834 - and it was terrible the whole time. But it was at its worst in the first hundred years, when thousands and thousands of innocent people living in the new Spanish Empire were ruthlessly tortured and many of them burned alive for, mostly, maybe being Jewish in a country that was aggressively Catholic. Find out how the Catholic church rose to power, how the Spanish empire was formed, why inquisitions were carried out, and how they were carried out, in this torture-filled edition of Timesuck!

In 1973, 21 year old German college student Anneliese Michel began to descend into an existence of pure and utter madness. She had begun to see the faces of demons appear around her with increasing frequency. She awoke more and more often in the middle of the night, unable to move, unable to scream out, feeling an evil presence overtake her body. Her life had become a never ending parade of visits to doctors and prayer. And neither priest nor neurosurgeon seemed able to help her. And for the last ten months of her life, one exorcism after another would be performed on the deteriorating mind and body of this fragile, frightened, and tormented young woman. And today, we dig into those final years of her life and leave you to decide if her death was in fact the result of demonic possession, today, on Timesuck!  Submit Dan for a Ted Talk? Click HERE!

Anneliese Michel would die in a small, German town on July 1st, 1976. The official cause of death? Malnutrition and dehydration. But why did she stop eating? Mental illness? She’d seen a plethora of doctors for years, none of whom could determine, beyond epilepsy, exactly what was wrong. Brain scans revealed nothing abnormal. Why was she hearing voices? Was she simply suffering from a mental illness local doctors just weren’t knowledgeable enough to identify and treat? If so, how does mental illness explain others watching her eyes turn black and her hands turning into claws? Was something other than illness attacking her mind and body? Something not of this world?

The Lost Books of the Bible! Is that really what we’re talking about today on Timesuck? Yes. Was I super excited to dive into this topic when I found out our Space Lizard listeners voted it in on the app? No! I mean, we just did an episode last week with a strong Christian theme! And now we’re doing another? Yep. And it's awesome. Turns out, once again, the wisdom of the Space Lizard community has surpassed my own. This is a great topic! A fascinating topic. A very hard topic to research - you guys kicked my ass on this one the week back from vacation, but a highly relevant and perpetually relevant topic! We take a pre-Catholic, pre-Great Protestant divide look into the very formation of Christianity itself. It's intense. Magic battles, a VERY strange sacrament ritual, entertaining archaic customs and so much more on today's Timesuck! Timesuck is brought to you by My West Coast Buds, the podcast! Take an inside look at cannabis, coffee, comedy, and spirits. www.mywestcoastbuds.com  They have an amazing guest for their April 16th episode - Chino Lee, voted one of Portland, Oregon's top bartenders - a city known for highfalutin mixology.

The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), founded by hatemonger Fred Phelps, is an American church (cult) known for protesting funerals with preposterously homophobic signs and for its use of inflammatory hate speech, especially against LGBT+ people. They also hate Catholics, Jews, Muslims, soldiers, America, and more. They hate almost everyone. The Southern Poverty Law Center has called the WBC, “arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America.” Find out why they believe what they do, and a little unexpected inspiration, today, on Timesuck!

The Stanford Prison Experiment is one of the most famous psychological studies ever conducted. In 1971, newly tenured psychology professor Richard Zimbardo turned the basement of the Stanford University psychology department into a fake prison where young male volunteers were divided into the roles of Prisoner and Guard . The study was meant to last two weeks. But the brutality of the Guards and the suffering of the Prisoners was so intense that it had to be terminated after only six days.

Serial killer Richard Ramirez killed at least 14 people and raped and tortured at least two dozen more, mostly during the Spring and Summer of 1985. He robbed to support his coke habit and and he tortured, raped, and killed to both sexually satisfy himself and to appease Satan. Ramirez was WAY into Satan. He’d actually pray to the Devil for protection before sneaking into some innocent family’s home to brutalize, rape, and kill. And today, if you have the stomach for it, you can learn all about the dirty deeds of this dark piece of shit. Extra big parental advisory on this one.

Toughest topic I’ve tackled so far. Marches going on across the country to ban assault rifles. School walkouts. Gun rights advocates staging their own protests. Celebrities posting all kinds of feel good, emotional quotes. But are we looking at this issue the right away? After my research this past few weeks, I don't think so. Let's stop polarizing this discussion. The current issue runs a lot deeper than getting rid of a gun or class of guns. So let’s go deep, Timesuckers! Prepare to be bombarded with so many stats about guns. We deep dive into America’s history with firearms and explore what the real problem with mass murder is in this nation, today, on Timesuck!

On Friday, April 25th, 1986, the Soviet city of Pripyat, built to support the local nuclear power plant Chernobyl, had 13,414 apartments, a hospital, a movie theater, an art school, a central park with a giant ferris wheel, and over 50,000 residents. And then, at 1:23AM on Saturday, April 26th, 1986, the number 4 reactor heated up to more than 100 times its usual operating power. Which is very, very bad. After a few explosions and a lot of radiation kicked out to the atmosphere, by April 30th, the population would be zero.  More than 50 reactor and emergency workers died in the following days and weeks. And in the years since, many more have died. How many? How disastrous was this nuclear disaster? What led to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster? Will I say, nuclear, correctly? So much explored, examined, and evaluated in this atom bomb edition of Timesuck! Timesuck is brought to you today by by the socially conscious and fantastic on-line mattress store LEESA!

The Bielski brothers led the largest Jewish-led rescue operation of Jewish civilians in ALL of World War II. They saved over 1,200 men, women, and children by hiding them in the forests of Western Belo-russia, from 1942-1944. More than 20,000 descendants of the survivors the Bielski’s helped save are alive today because of the ingenuity, heart, and perseverance of these men. They led numerous attacks against the German forces, sabotaging their war and round up efforts, killing their soldiers, and earning a huge target on their heads. Let’s get pumped, let’s get some revolutionary blood flowing through our veins, let’s feel thankful to just be alive today. LIFE is what the Bielski brothers fought for - and we deep dive them today, and go on a big emotional rollercoaster of a Suck, today, on Timesuck!  Listen to the Pandora exclusive album, Maybe I'm the Problem, by clicking here!

Aleister Crowley was many things: an author, an artist, a poet, a mystic, a student, a mountaineer, a world traveler, and a notorious occultist. He shocked Victorian and post-Victorian England and the Western World at-large with his "Satanic" ways. He was permanently banned from both Italy and France before his death. He believed in magic, real magic, and tried to conjure mythical spirits into our world. He performed bizarre "sex magick" rituals that shocked polite society. He developed the spiritual philosophy of Thelema, built on his guiding principle of "Do What Thou Wilt". Who was this dark, strange man and how was he able to leave the mark he did on Western Culture? All is revealed! The Great Beast exposed today, on Timesuck.  Cleveland!

What in the shit are we talking about this week? Norse Gods! Turns out they’re still being worshipped today. Who knew? Well, our own Timesuck editor Jesse Dobner for one, who is a practicing Asatruar.  Apparently a lot of people in Iceland also knew and quite a few in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Even a few Timesuckers. I didn’t. I thought Thor was a comic book character whose Marvel mythology kicked off three really successful movies and made Chris Hemsworth a star and Stan Lee even more money- like he needs that. I had no idea that those movies and the comics they came from were based on real mythology. Turns out the Scandinavians have an origin story as fantastical and interesting and magical as the Ancient Greeks. And just like some people still worship the Ancient Greek and Roman Gods from Mount Olympus - seriously - somebody is hoping he’s on Zeus’s good side right now - others worship the Norse Gods of Asgard. As in Thor. Right now. I learned so much this week - my mind was expanded in surprising ways - and now you too are gonna learn so much and have a great time in this Norse Gods edition of Timesuck!  Timesuck is brought to you by two great new podcasts!

Tupac and Biggie - two of the biggest hip hop stars of all time. And neither of them would see the age of 26. Their West Coast/East Coast rap feud helped sell millions of records, helped launch the career of Puff Daddy. It cemented Death Row Records as one of the greatest hip hop labels of all time. I listened to a ton of Tupac growing up. And who hasn’t heard some Biggie? But how much do we really know about either man? Well, after today’s episode, you’ll know a lot. Biggie, biggie, biggie, can’t you see that we’ve got to learn a little bit about you and Tupac’s history, today, on Timesuck.

Feb. 28th, 2018 will mark the 25th anniversary of the ATF raiding the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco Texas, setting off a 51 day armed standoff between federal agents and militant Christian fanatics. Over 80 people would die, most in the final day of the siege when a fire would burn the compound to the ground, killing nearly all of the men, women, and children still inside. Tanks versus citizens. Armed agents versus armed zealots. Religious freedom versus gun laws and the age of consent. And behind all of this madness? David Koresh. A self-proclaimed prophet, polygamist, and pedophile.

When murder investigators entered the rural farm house of loner Ed Gein just outside the tiny town of Plainfield, Wisconsin on November 16th, 1957, they found a scene like nothing any American investigator had ever seen before.

How could all of this horror come from a slight, soft-spoken, middle-aged local loner and farm-hand? Find out today on a morbidly captivating edition of Timesuck!

The Irish Republican Army. Guys and gals who have, since their inception, been viewed as a liberation force by some and a terrorist group by others. They fight for the liberation of Northern Ireland from whom they view as British oppressors. But, as you’ll find out today - their case isn’t so simple. Their cause not obviously just. They’ve been lighting up Northern Ireland and England with bombs and gun fire for damn near 100 years. Why? Does Northern Ireland even need or want liberating? We dig deep into Ireland’s history and the formation and latter evolution of the Irish Republican Army on a boom boom edition, of Timesuck.  Wanna be a Space Lizard" Go here: https://www.patreon.com/timesuckpodcast  Sign up through Patreon and for $5 a month you get to listen to the Secret Suck, which will drop Thursdays at Noon, PST.

I recently watched the new 4th season of Black Mirror on Netflix, and, if this season has a theme, I’d say it’s the concept of digital immortality. Can human consciousness be transferred into digital form? And, if so, is this digital version of ourselves as alive as the old carbon-based model? I keep thinking about this possibility, because, for the first time in human history, it does seem possible. And I’m not the only person who thinks so. We talk a lot about the past here on Timesuck, and we will again, but, we’re going to talk about the future. A future of very exciting and mind-bending possibilities. Dissected and discussed today, on Timesuck!  Today's Timesuck is brought to you by Leesa Mattresses.

Before this week I knew very little about Africa’s history. It’s a continent of many nations, nations whose boundaries and governments are near constantly in some state of transition. It’s a beautiful continent rich in wildlife, natural resources, and culture but suffering under perpetual war, famine, and chaos. There are currently 15 African countries experiencing either war or post war tension. Why? Well, turns out the trouble has a lot to do with good ol’ fashioned European imperialism. We know something about that here in America. It’s how our own nation was formed. So let’s learn more about the continent you, in all likelihood, know less about than other continents - Africa. Africa’s history is fascinating - and we explore much of it today, on Timesuck. You can now signup to become a Space Lizard!!! https://www.patreon.com/timesuckpodcast .
