Podcast Episode's:
Fred C. Martinez Jr, Beyoncé, and his short life as a Two Spirit
<p><em>"I wish every human life to be pure, transparent freedom,"</em> a quote which embeds itself into the memory of many, was spoken by Simone de Beauvoir. The sentiment is pure; it’s a genuinely good and authentic hope to want freedom for all in society. It goes unsaid, sadly, but freedom is far from reality for too many people in marginalized communities. It is especially difficult for those inhabiting intersections of identities such as being an ethnic minority and LGBTQIA2S+ -- or as discussed in this episode, a gay two-spirit Navajo teen, or a <em>nadleehi,</em> who went by both Beyoncé or the name found on his birth certificate: Fred Martinez Jr. His identity has roots deep in a part of cultural lore which varies in detail and storyline per tribe, but remains consistently valid, accepted, and exalted across the hundreds of first-nations communities…  The sacred identity of the Two Spirit.</p> <p>According to legend, two spirits are people who have within them a masculine or male spirit as well as a feminine or female spirit. Depending on the tribes own unique culture, though always recognizing and confirming the identity and sacredness of those who belong to what, to outsiders, may appear to be a third-gender, gender deviance, or nonbinary gender.</p> <p>With his eye make-up on, purse, uninhibited acceptance of himself, and a supportive family, Beyoncé did no harm being who Beyoncé was.  Unfortunately, there are people who have not evolved along with the rest of society and try to force their expired values and ignorance on those who challenge their world view. People like Shaun Murphy who would fly into an uncontrollable rage over homosexuality. People like Shaun Murphy who would brag about killing a fellow human being over their sexual orientation. Murphy killed an innocent soul over something harmless, something self-contained, something which would not affect Murphy in any way unless he made it affect him. And he did.</p> <p>Hate-crime statues widened to offer more coverage, and while Martinez’s death inspired this important change it exposes the lack of preventative care offered to marginalized communities. Suffice to say, we will see many more unnecessary martyrs before society accepts the “ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure” adage as a guiding light.</p> <p>20 years ago, multiple foundations grouped together hoping to convince the press and media to give Martinez’s murder the attention it deserved. Now, 2 decades later and still fighting for equity across the country and world, I hope to help give light to the loss of Beyoncé, Fred C Martinez Jr, as I cover his murder, offer a brief, unfortunately reductive a history and spirituality behind two-spirits across different indigenous cultures, and hope to bring attention to this overlooked murder of a Navajo teenager.</p> <p>The two promos featured in this episode are from <a href= "https://twitter.com/MensReaPod" target="_blank" rel="noopener">the MensRea podcast</a> and the <a href= "https://domesticpodcast.podbean.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Cult of Domesticity podcast</a>.

Rebecca Zahau and Max Shacknai - Two Deaths, Too Bizarre
<p>Two tragedies shrouded in too many questions and too much mystery: Rebecca Zahau and Max Shacknai died 3 days apart of wildly different causes of death, or did they? Max was only 6-years-old when he ended up in a coma after he fell from the 2nd story, landing in the center of a grand staircase at his father’s lavish mansion. An accident, officials rule. But how did the boy manage to clear a 3-foot banister before bringing a palatial chandelier down with him? Did he really stumble over the family dog to his fate or was something more sinister at work?</p> <p>Hot on the heels of the now comatose Maxfield’s accident, his wealthy father’s girlfriend, 32-year-old Rebecca, appeared to have taken her own life by hanging herself from the balcony outside of her second-story bedroom. Only two days since emergency services had been at the expansive mansion to save a child, they returned to investigate a possible suicide. Assuming it was suicide, the details and way she committed the act was extremely unusual and suspicious to many. Rebecca had been the only adult home when Max was injured and just received news Max was not likely to survive, let alone recover, from the injuries he’d sustained. With evidence showing Rebecca may have been in a depressive state already, was the added stress what pushed her over the edge… And what if it wasn’t stress she was overcome with – what if it was guilt or even regret?</p> <p>Or are the people who believe Rebecca was murdered after being blamed for Max’s fall -- whether she actually was involved or not – and the crime was covered up as a suicide by cops paid off by the rich business tycoon Jonah Shacknai who’d been Rebecca’s boyfriend for 2+ years and was Max’s father. Who is to blame, if anyone is to blame? I go over the series of events and curiosities surrounding a pair of too-close-for-comfort deaths in Coronado, California which raises questions like it’s the end of the world tomorrow.</p> <p>Requested by Linzi, one of the superhuman hosts from <a href= "https://33pulp.com/">the 33% Pulp podcast</a>.</p> <p>A special double episode release after an extended and unplanned hiatus.</p> <p>This episode features promos from the <a href= "http://murder.ly/fap/">Fiercely Altered Perspective Podcast</a>  and the <a href="http://www.braintrustbros.com/">Wall Fly Podcast</a> – two amazing, enlightening podcasts I suggest y’all check out with a disclaimer: don't do anything requiring complete attention while listening to either podcast because not paying full focus to their great content is nigh impossible to do.</p> <p> </p> <p>------------------------------------</p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>TOLL-FREE CRISIS HOTLINE NUMBERS</strong></span></p> <p><strong>National Suicide Prevention Lifeline</strong>: 1(800) 273-8255 (online chat available)</p> <p>The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Crisis Text Line:</strong> Text START to 741-741</p> <p>Crisis Text Line is free, 24/7 support for those in crisis.

Why Public Outcry Put Over the "Fabulous" Moolah
<p><span style="color: #cc99ff;"><strong>The Life of the Fabulous Moolah.</strong></span></p> <p>After overwhelming disapproval and dissent by the public at large at their goal of paying homage to the Fabulous Moolah with a bout at Wrestlemania in March 2018, the WWF conceded to popular opinion and changed their plans. Though she was technically a heel/villain, the outcry wasn't about her as a wrestling. Taking advantage of her students isn't the only abhorrent thing the First Goddess of the Squared Circle did to make herself genuinely and profoundly disliked.</p> <p> <img style= "display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/106912/fabulous-moolah.jpg" alt="" width="400" height="225" /> </p> <p><span style="color: #cc99ff;"><strong>Why a Legendary, Hall of Fame Wrestler was Put Over By Public Outrage</strong></span></p> <p>The Fabulous Moolah sexually and financially exploited women and girls. She ruined countless lives even those who idolized her and pursued careers to imitate Moolah. She held the Women's Wrestling Championship throne for a total of almost 30 years, and she wrestled alongside her best friend against wrestler Victoria in next to nothing in her mid-70s without fear.</p> <p> </p> <p><span style="color: #cc99ff;"><strong>"I Want Money! I want Moolah!"</strong></span></p> <p>The story of a particularly influential wrestler whose reputation is polarizing, at best and at worst.The WWE nearly honored her legacy with a battle royal last month. But the public’s fury put over that notion. This episode is about the reasons behind all the genuine, real life heat for the acclaimed women’s wrestler, wrestling trainer, and the record holder for being the Divas champion in the WWE, first goddess of the squared circle, the Fabulous Moolah.</p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="color: #cc99ff;"><strong>PROMOS FEATURED IN THIS EPISODE:</strong></span></h2> <p>The <a href="https://maulpodcast.podbean.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">M.A.U.L.

s01e12: Maddie Clifton and Joshua Philips - A Kid Killed By a Kid
<p>When it comes to crime, Floridians seem to be a fertile ground for crimes to be either highly entertaining and ridiculous or especially gruesome and horrific. Maddie Clifton's case, one of a preteen being killed by her teenage neighbor, Joshua Philips, is a tragic example of the latter.</p> <p>After decades in prison for taking Maddie's life, Joshua is now an adult and displays remorse, regret, and sorrow. He files appeals and is an ongoing catalyst in conversations about how to ethically, acceptably, and successfully sentence minors who commit serious crimes. Was he too young to understand the depths of murder? Was it an accident a still developing mind didn't know how to handle appropriately? Was Joshua simply evil? And... Is he still? </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Featuring promos from <a href= "https://soundcloud.com/nothingrhymeswithmurder" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Nothing Rhymes with Murder</a> (beginning of episode) and <a href="http://paranormalreport.us/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Paranormal Report</a> (end of episode).</strong> Check both of them out for a healthy dose of great dialogue and subject matter!</p> <p> </p> <p>------------------------------------</p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: #ff6600;"><strong>Toll-Free Crisis Hotline Numbers</strong></span><br /> <br /> <a href="https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/"><strong>National Suicide Prevention Lifeline</strong></a><strong>:</strong> <strong>1(800) 273-8255</strong> <strong>(online chat available)</strong><strong><br /></strong>The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.crisistextline.org/"><strong>Crisis Text Line</strong></a><strong>:</strong> <strong>Text</strong> <strong><em>START</em></strong> <strong>to</strong> <strong>741-741</strong><strong><br /> </strong> Crisis Text Line is free, 24/7 support for those in crisis.

s01e11: Latasha Harlins, 25 years later. Say her name.
<p>In the years following the senseless murder of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins, her name and existence seemed to disappear from media and history. Even the woman convicted of her murder managed to slide away with little to no consequence. But for those who participated in those paramount 4 days of political unrest in 1992, Latasha and Rodney King were the names spray-painted, burned, and etched into the walls of Los Angeles. Latasha Harlins was the last spark after repeated injustices, and Rodney King was a final fire from years of racialized violence in southern California... One ignited the other, and together they lit a fuse which set the city of Angels into a justified and chaotic upheaval. </p> <p>Cassandra and Alice discuss the history leading up to, one nearly forgotten catalyst, and the shameful way one judge's horrendous idea of justice which set the L.A. riots in motion...</p> <p>Latasha Harlins, 25 years later.

s01e10: Jessica Kate Williams
<p>When a young black woman with disabilities is found murdered in East Portland, veteran homicide investigators are left reeling. The scene reveals an especially depraved murder... Committing what they suspect was their 4th victim. <br /> <br /> A total of 13 people were arrested. Only 3 of them were over 18. The eldest, who was the street family's "father," leads the transient street kids with their mohawks and patches into a life described as "Lord of the Rings on Meth," murder, and infamy.<br /> <br /> This week we discuss the tragic loss of a young woman lovingly referred to as Giggles due to her cheer and warmth. Jessica Kate Williams deserves to be recognized instead of lost to history, and she deserves to be remembered.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Toll-Free Crisis Hotline Numbers</strong></p> <p><strong>National Suicide Prevention Lifeline:</strong> 1(800) 273-8255 (online chat available)<br /> The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.</p> <p><strong>Crisis Text Line:</strong> Text START to 741-741<br /> Crisis Text Line is free, 24/7 support for those in crisis.

s01e05: Cathy Woods and Michelle Mitchell
<p>After 35 years serving time for a murder she didn't commit, Cathy Woods was exonerated when DNA evidence cleared her of Michelle Mitchell's killing. It sounds like a happy ending, but the investigation and trial make it clear police departments in two separate states didn't care about finding justice. The second episode where mistreatment of a mentally ill person results in the unacceptable.... And a possible serial killer and convicted rapist is irrefutably linked.</p> <p>After a guilty conviction in 1980 was overturned, Woods was resentenced in 1985. When she was finally released in 2014, she held the longest sentence served before being exonerated.</p> <p>This case was requested by Sara at the conclusion of our interview about Jason Eschevarria's death at Riker's Island (Episode #3). Thank you again, Sara! </p> <p>Kamron and Cassandra discuss the case and discuss the next episode we have in store for you to be released Tuesday, December 26th.

s01e02 : The Mysterious Fate of Annie McCann
<p><strong>Annie McCann </strong>was a happy, picture-perfect 16 year old girl from a picturesque and affluent suburban home... Or so it seemed. As it goes, there are sides to all of us we keep hidden but these secrets we keep don't always lead to danger, mystery, or our death. </p> <p>Today, Halloween, 2017, marks the 9 year anniversary of her curious journey and ultimate fate.</p> <p><a href="http://thegenerationwhypodcast.com">The Generation Why podcast</a> covered this case only a couple months ago and the response was immediate. Justin suggested Kamron and Cassandra take a stab at it from a different perspective. </p> <p>Cassandra even went so far as to hunt down numerous medical and academic texts, compiling them in <a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/ofmythandmercy/McCann.pdf">this document (pdf)</a> available for you to download and investigate yourself.  </p> <p>Also, enjoy a small homage honoring the GenWhy 'pod people' for their 5 year anniversary of casting! </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Toll Free Crisis Hotlines For North America/USA:</strong><br /> <strong>National Suicide Prevention Lifeline</strong><br /> 1-800-273-8255</p> <p><strong>National Domestic Violence Hotline</strong><br /> 1-800-799-7233<br /> 1-800-787-3224 (TTY for Deaf/hard of hearing)</p> <p><strong>Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)</strong><br /> 1-800-656-HOPE (4673)</p>

s01e01: Paul Durousseau
<p><strong>Paul Durousseau</strong> was tall, attractive, charming, and unfortunately, a manipulative serial killer who dehumanized women he victimized. There are questions still lingering about the former military man but what is known unfolds to be a horror for Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida.<br /> <br /> Breaking the false notion of black men of color being serial killers, and worse yet, targeting those in some of the most marginalized communities of America without regard or remorse, Kamron and Cassandra discuss a horror from the city they currently call home for the first episode.<br /> <br /> We are looking forward to hearing any and all feedback and input from everyone who listens! Please feel encouraged to reach out to us through any of the links to our social media and other contact pages. Thanks for checking us out and enjoy our double episode premier.<br /> <br /> <strong>Toll Free Crisis Hotlines For North America/USA:</strong><br /> <strong>National Suicide Prevention Lifeline</strong><br /> 1-800-273-8255</p> <p><strong>National Domestic Violence Hotline</strong><br /> 1-800-799-7233<br /> 1-800-787-3224 (TTY for Deaf/hard of hearing)</p> <p><strong>Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)</strong><br /> 1-800-656-HOPE (4673)</p>
