EP-406 The Three Little Pigs: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

April 2nd, 2021

While investigating these crimes in fairytale land it really made me aware of the fact that families were being destroyed and they had no support. It especially hit me when I had a chat with Practical. The following interview may be disturbing, listener discretion is advised.

EP-405 The Wolf and The Seven Young Kids: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

March 26th, 2021

This story reminds me of a particular serial killer from our land. He was truly horrific and terrorized an entire state for years. He was the type of person who took his time and learned everything he could about his victims before he made his final move. He would go into their homes beforehand and take trinkets as prizes for his unspeakable acts.

EP-404 The Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

March 19th, 2021

Join me this week as we dig deeper into the Big Bad Wolf and why I believe he is a serial killer.

In the crime safety security.com site it says: “Serial killers look perfectly normal and may be above average in intelligence. You may very well have met one and found him charming or, if nothing else, forgettable. You may know a killer and never realize it – because he doesn't seem the least bit like a monster. They blend in with the rest of us without arousing the slightest suspicion.”

If you have any information about the Big Bad Wolf please leave us a tip at (661) 544-8226. Some one knows something.

EP-403 The Wolf and The Fox: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

March 12th, 2021

I found an article called 5 Myths About Serial Killers and Why Do They Persist and it reads I quote: “The majority of serial killers are not reclusive social misfits who live alone, despite pervasive depictions of them as such in the news and entertainment media. Real-life serial killers are not the isolated monsters of fiction and, frequently, they do not appear to be strange or stand out from the public in any meaningful way.” Upon reading this I began to wonder. Did Zeke, the Big Bad Wolf truly travel alone as I first stated? Or was he truly a lone wolf?

EP-402 The Crane and The Wolf: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

March 5th, 2021

When I started this journey I sat in front of my computer and stared at the blank screen for what felt like eternity. I was frozen, but I was lost in this run on sentence in my head about Zeke. Only I didn’t know him as Zeke at the time he was The Big Bad Wolf.  And I found myself shaking my head from side to side and saying “that's 3 murders. 3 murders so close to each other by the same villain, The Big Bad Wolf.”  Then I just shot up in my seat, He's a Serial Killer!!!! Fairytale land has, or had a serial killer and no one was or is talking about it.

EP-401 The Wolf and The Dog: a true crime investigation in Fairytale Land

February 26th, 2021

I know what you"re thinking... You thought fairytale land was just that a tale. But what if I told you that it is an actual place. And we can go there. In fact we are there now. This is FairyTale Land. Yes, the place where fairy godmothers dance and evil forces play. You’ve read about this place to your kids at night. You’ve bought books about princes and princesses that   promote happily ever afters. You’ve shared with your friends which ones of it’s tales were your favorites and why.  

But we are here tracking a story. Going through the looking glass and pushing aside the veil.  I’m shining a light on Fairy Tale Lands' first serial killer. This is the story about the Big Bad Wolf. He terrorized FairyTale Land for years and then poof! We just stopped hearing about him. What happened to the Big Bad Wolf? And Is he still alive?

Join me for the next 7 weeks as we uncover this story.

Following The Big Bad Wolf: a true crime investigation in FairyTale Land

January 29th, 2021

This season I”m trying something different. You might not know this but I am a murderino, you know a true crime junkie. That’s right my friends on my free time I listen to murder. So much so that when I was first bouncing around ideas to create a podcast I thought I would be doing a true crime podcast and who knows maybe one day I will. So this season I decided to take a stab at it but in my own way. This podcast is me reading you great stories which I love and I will continue to do so  here. Even during this investigation season. So keeping that in mind we are going to delve into the realm of Fairy Tale Land and get to know one of the meanest, sneakiest, baddest mother wolves around the infamous Big Bad Wolf. We are going to hear stories about his beginnings. Where he grew up, who were his influences, did he have friends, how did he become who he is known as today? The Big Bad Wolf is not a one trick pony like, he is at the narcissist level of  Ted Bundy. He has been “Gone in the dark like the Golden State Killer”. The Big Bad Wolf is a serial killer and I'm calling him out.

 

Starting February 26th, join me every Friday for a few weeks as we explore the life of the Big Bad Wolf. Let’s go to FairyTale Land and do some investigating. Make sure you are subscribed on your pod player of choice and please stop by our Instagram page and say hieeeeee. I’ll be in your ears soon. Until then what stories will you be getting into?

A Spooky Christmas Tale: Smee

December 25th, 2020

For this holiday season let's go on an adventure to a Victorian Christmas of long, long ago. Did you know that during the Victorian era, publishers of newspapers and magazines printed ghost stories during the Christmas season for chilling winter reading by the fireside or candlelight. It was a time of reflection as the days became longer and darker. People would gather and share tales of past winters, of deaths that occurred, of births and rebirths. “Christmas was originally connected to the 'pagan' Winter Solstice celebration and the festival known as Yule. The darkest day of the year was seen by many as a time when the dead would have particularly good access to the living,” that was a quote from religious studies professor Justin Daniels stated in an University of Pennsylvania blog. (https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/why-do-ghost-stories-go-christmas-180961547/)

So gather around the fire my friends. Warm your hands, grab a glass off of the counter and lets nestle up as we enter into Alfred McClelland Burrage world of words this is the Christmas telling of the game Smee…..

I am currently working on Season 4 of How About A Story. Keep an ear out for new episodes dropping in February / March of 2021.
