Have you ever heard of disturbing serial killer Richard Byrd? He raped and strangled eight young women to death in Las Vegas between 1991 and 2001, but almost no one has heard of him, because he was arrested... the day after 9/11. And he took a plea bargain and never went to trial. Hear his wild story today... and never think about hair brushes the same way again.

391 - Skinny Folks Go To Heaven: The Remnant Fellowship Cult

Did you ever think that overeating, specifically, could send your soul to Hell? Or that not losing enough weight, fast enough, could jeopardize your salvation? These are just some of the many terrible (and bizarre) messages that very skinny self-proclaimed "prophetess" Gwen Shamblin Lara preached before she died in a plane crash in 2021.   Sadly, the cultish church she built, lives on. And this week, we explore (and mock) its weirdly weight-centric teachings.

Jim Miller. Killin' Jim. Right before stepping off a wooden crate with a noose around his neck, in front of the members of the lynch mob that wanted him dead, Miller claimed to have killed 51 men. I believe him. This guy put the wild... in the wild west.  Hope you enjoy this Short Suck! Have a great weekend!

On the night of November 25th, 1996, Rick Wendorf, 49, and his partner Ruth Queen, 54, were beaten to death with a crowbar inside their home in Eustis, Florida, by a vampire over 500 years old known as Vesago. At least that's what their killer believed. "Vesago" was really Rod Ferrell, a sixteen year-old from Murray, Kentucky, who lost himself in a vampiric role playing game, and truly thought he'd become an immortal bloodsucker.  Watch the Suck on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Tj4P-thTEdc Merch and more: www.badmagicproductions.com  Timesuck Discord! https://discord.gg/tqzH89v Wan ..read more

Exploring some super interesting and strange territory today. I might not be able to record any more podcasts because NOW MY BRAIN IS MELTED! In this episode, we explore the theoretical concept of the fourth dimension, see how it applies to the nature of our reality and our dreams, and explore how some think it proves the existence of the soul... and ghosts.
