Codebreakers are linguistic alchemists, a mystical tribe attempting to conjure sensible words out of meaningless symbols.

 

Secret messages, lost languages, black chambers, and sneaky spymasters. Crack our code to find the next meeting of book club, where we're whispering about Simon Singh's non-fiction exploration "The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography." Catrina nerds out about linguistics, Aurelien dreams of the crossword-solving spy life, and we both have existential anxiety about quantum computing and the future of privacy.

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?
