Worse Than Fiction Podcast

Worse Than Fiction Podcast

An ambitious True Horrorchestration with cinematic elements. Stories of True Crime, Natural disasters and more, told in often graphic detail by a single narrator, with music chosen or composed with particular atmospheres and moods in mind. This podcast is not for everyone, as I spare no details. The stories you hear from me, will certainly be Worse Than Fiction.

On this episode, friend of the podcast Landen Wilson joins me to talk about being a Death Investigator. He is a former Death Investigator for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and performed many autopsies during his tenure.

We also go over the unsolved murder case of Russell and Shirley Dermond, and Landen has a unique connection to the case that most people don't. He actually saw their bodies.

Here is the failed, former "Mental Horrors" that I mentioned in 8000 Tons. I failed hard at making it work the way I wanted, but as I explain in the intro, I went about it the wrong way and wasted many, many hours trying to write a story within this discussion. I decided to scrap it, and release this as-is.

A little episode to give everyone an update and remind followers that I'm still here!

Not only that, but I go through a listener requested story without a script! I hope it isn't bad...and I'd be willing to bet that the overwhelming majority of you have never heard of this crime. The murder weapon is horrific to imagine, and the terror that the victims must have felt cannot be overstated.

I have another podcast that I want to share with you today. It's called Crimeatorium and it's a brand-new storytelling styled podcast by an absolute sweetheart named Madeline. She's not only a great writer and researcher, but her voice is very relaxing. Don't be fooled though, she isn't afraid to get into the tough details of a story. I hope you "enjoy", if that's the right word for it...https://www....

This is the second part of London After Midnight. This episode delves a bit more into the victim who appeared toward the end of the first part, as well as the details of what happened to the second victim of this fucking monster. It also introduces a couple of people who could BE the person that would eventually become known as The Blackout Ripper.

In the small state of Delaware in 1987, a 36 year old woman was yearning for something she wasn't able to have. She was willing to do anything to achieve her goal.
CORRECTIONS: A couple of mistakes have been brought to my attention. Delaware is not part of New England, though I said "New England charm", and I meant to say "The Godfather Three" instead of "The Grandfather Three". I listened to the episode ...

This was the toughest episode so far, in every imaginable way. A worst case scenario of domestic abuse and true horror. Not for the faint of heart.

I'm stepping away from true crime on this episode to talk about a different kind of horror. I'll be detailing an event perpetrated by the most successful mass-killer in history...the Earth itself.

This is the story of a very unusual type of serial killer, that had a very specific victim type. Though not as graphic as my usual stories, it is possibly the most heartbreaking one I'll ever tell.
