The excerpt you're about to hear is from Oberon's show winegod, which traced the ancientness of queer identity and grappled with the erasure of queer history...

Today’s show is all about the bizarre, embarrassing, inexplicable notes that I’ve found in my phone and in various notebooks.

I’m not talking about long chunks of prose or deep excerpts from a diary or journal. I’m talking about random words and sentences that are just on their own, in the middle of a blank page. 

Ideas or phrases I’ve written to myself but that have absolutely no context, like I’m supposed to know exactly what I mea...

It's a weird one this week, a proper weird one in which I tell you about 29 of my deeply strange dreams.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
