SFR 361: Cold Case Squad

–A grand jury convened to investigate Planned Parenthood decides that the evidence warranted indicting a pair who created deceptively edited videos about the organization. Let’s examine the charges, and see what we think.
–The X-Files returns after many years away and…we enjoy it! But wait, how can skeptics like us enjoy a program which is filled with so much untrue and non-scientific elements? We’ll let you know.
–Richard Dawkins is disinvited from a science and skepticism convention after he tweets a video that satirizes similarities between radical feminists and Islamists. Was this the right move for the conference to make? Or more capitulation to sacred cows?
–RECOMMENDATION: Jason recommends the book, “A Deadly Secret” by Matt Birkbeck, saying that people who liked the Robert Durst documentary series, The Jinx, will enjoy this look at the story told much more from the police’s perspective.
john-a-cameron–Dateline NBC and Investigation Discovery air specials on Steven Avery and the murder of Teresa Halbach on back-to-back nights. Neither did anything to change our minds, but online reaction is ridiculous.

In hour 2, we speak with cold case investigator and author John A Cameron about the late serial killer Edward Wayne Edwards, who Cameron believes killed dozens and dozens of high profile murder victims over the past several decades. Can we really take seriously a story that involves Edwards, at 13 years of age, killing the Black Dahlia? That the same guy later was the Zodiac Killer, the Atlanta Child Murderer, and more? Listen to the case presented, and decide for yourself whether or not it has merit.  We certainly don’t hold back our opinion.

Friend, family member, possible werewolf. I co-host Strange Frequencies Radio, blog at Confidential Korbus, and generally walk among the weird. When I'm not doing busywork, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, my eyes glued to a glowing screen, or my ears tuned to The Ramones.

    It’s nice that you humored the author but the whole premise is ridiculous.

      Well, we had him on to make his case, but we weren’t impressed. We’ve heard from his readers since, and they seem quite excited about his work. Some people will believe anything, I guess.
