This podcast is brought to you by the nonprofit initiative "Stories Behind the Stars".The name Stories Behind the Stars derives its name from the World War II practice of the military giving the families of each of the fallen a banner with a gold star on it. We have the ambitious goal to collect the stories of everyone one of the 400,000+ US WWII fallen in one common database on Fold3.com, freely accessible to all. To make these stories even more accessible, Stories Behind the Stars is developing a smartphone app where anyone with the app can use their Smartphone camera to scan the name of any of these 400,000 fallen from a memorial or gravestone and get a link to read their stories right there. It will forever change the experience of visiting these hallowed sites. This podcast is about our journey to accomplish this goal. Listen to our researches their stories and the stories of the fallen they have found and shared.

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.

The MLK Tapes, a new true crime podcast from the creators of Atlanta Monster and Monster: DC Sniper, explores rare recordings of eye-witness testimony and new interviews with people who were there to reveal the true story of the plot to kill Dr. King.
