Episode 227 LIVE: 2020 Holiday Special! Gruesome Christmas Murders

Happy Holidays to one and all! On this horrific holiday installment, Tom and Jenny talk about several cases that illustrate the sinister side of Christmas. We’ll discuss the infamous Lawson Family Massacre of 1929, in which a father took out practically his entire family on Christmas Eve for reasons that weren’t known until much later; the 2008 Covina Massacre, where a man dressed as Santa slaughtered nine people with guns and a flamethrower at a holiday party; and several more brutal murders that took place on or around what is supposed to be one of the happiest days of the year. Don your blood-red Santa hat and cuddle by the fire with your booze-spiked hot chocolate, because it’s gonna be a ho-ho-horrifying sleigh ride through Christmas crime on a very special yuletide episode 227.

Happiest of happy holidays to all of our listeners out there!

Episode Seventy: Holiday Special! Biblical Allegory in the Books of Daniel and Revelation

Happy Holidays, 13 O’Clock listeners! On our sorta Christmasy-themed episode, we’ll be delving into the fascinating world of Biblical mythology, and specifically how the books of Daniel and Revelation may have allegorical, astronomical and astrological underpinnings. Were these books really prophecies of events yet to come, or were they simply fancy mythological retellings of historical happenstances? Put on your ugly Christmas sweater, pour yourself some eggnog, and kick back with your hosts as they jingle all the way into episode 70. Enjoy, and have a safe and happy holiday season out there!
