June 24th, 1979. Bittaker and Norris are trolling for chicks. They’d spent the day at the beach: smoking weed and drinking beer from a cooler in the back of Murder Mack... plotting when they’d turn fantasy to reality. In the rear of the van, they've installed a bed and placed underneath a toolbox full of ... instruments. The two men cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway, both buzzed and openly sharing their darkest sexual fantasies. Every girl they see becomes a subliminal rape victim... passed between the two via imagination, stoking the flames of action, increasing the intensity of their constant question to one another; the question of how and when they’ll begin their adventure...

“I am a man of passion. You don’t know what that means, unless you are my kind. At the orphanage where they put me just before Garfield was assassinated, there were some older boys that caught a horse in a slopping field. They got the horse up against a fence down at the bottom of the field and tied him up. An old horse. They put kerosene on his tail and lit it and cut the rope and away went that old horse busting through fences to get away from the fire. But the fire went with him. That horse, that’s me. That’s the man of passion. The fire chases you and catches you and then it’s in your blood. And after that, it’s the fire that has control, not the man. Blame the fire of passion for what Albert H. Fish has done…" This episode sponsored by Casper. Head over to Casper.com/topic and get $50 towards select mattresses by using promo code TOPIC at checkout. Terms and conditions apply.

You might think of hell as a hot place. That’s how it's depicted, in old films and cartoons. A sweltering abyss full of ghouls thrusting pitchforks, and inflicting bloody debauchery upon the recently damned. I'm not a believer in such places... but if i were... I'd be more inclined to go with the Dante’s Inferno depiction. Where hell is a cold, forgotten place. The darkest point of the universe, furthest from God, where sinners are trapped unmoving beneath the ice, and Satan mindlessly flaps his wings, trying to escape.  But then...there are Devils among us. Devils who become immortalized in movies, books, television shows and podcasts... . The types contained within the Dark Topic Catalogue. The types who raise the bar of how evil and savage we can be... who inspire future psychopaths to pursue their own dark dreams and satiate their enormous appetites. The worst of which, I can almost believe were sent from an evil place … maybe spawned from a cold corner of the cosmos…, a spore that crashed here via asteroid eons ago…… eventually morphing into something unfathomable…. And burping up from the bottom of the ocean to take the form of something hideous …like an Angler Fish…. Or worse …Like an Albert Fish.

Research Credit: Doctor Barak Music Credit: Tyler Jakes - Woodchips & Pouty Lips. www.tylerjakes.com For DT Merch and more, visit www.darktopicpodcast.com Sources: ARTICLES:  https://www.gq.com/story/truck-stop-killer-gq-november-2012 The author of this article was a teenage runaway hitchhiking at truck stops during the time when Rhoades was active. She had a scary encounter with a man who she later came to suspect was Rhoades, and she goes to attempt to verify her suspicion. It’s a good read with lots on insights into hitchhiking in the ‘80s https://www.truckdrivingjobs.com/faq/the-haunting-case-of-robert-ben-rhoades-truck-stop-muderer.html honestly, I cannot attest to the journalistic credentials of truck driver jobs, but they do have a refreshing angle, in that they don’t assume that truck drivers are, in general, a bunch of creepy psychos. https://www.monstersandcritics.com/smallscreen/truck-stop-killer-robert-ben-rhoades-ex-wife-recounts-time-with-serial-killer-and-rapist/ basically, a link to the ID interview https://abcnews.go.com/US/texas-trucker-traveling-torture-chamber-admits-murders/story?id=16037743 on the 2012 trial http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2223778/The-night-I-murdered-truck-stop-serial-killer-One-woman-tells-story-survival.html Vanessa Veselka, who wrote the GQ article, got covered in the DM! so you know it’s true https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/9175140/Torture-chamber-trucker-sentence-to-life-in-prison.html summary of the case on after the 2012 trial https://healthpsychologyconsultancy.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/making-of-a-monster-robert-ben-rhoades/ An interview with a psychologist who specialized in childhood abuse (who did not interview Rhoades but did review the material) on the events that may have contributed to create this serial killer. http://maamodt.asp.radford.edu/Psyc%20405/serial%20killers/Rhodes,%20Robert%20Ben%20spring%202007.pdf  Behold a timeline of his life events (that are related to his murders) recorded by students at the psychology department at Radford: (I will be checking this against the other sources to ascertain its reliability, since, just to start with, they misspelled ‘Council Bluffs, Iowa’) VIDEOS: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x21lu4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj1H3_aQhTg Stay Paranoid For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
