It has been 20 years, an entire generation, since the landmark mass school shooting that changed everything. Dr. Scott & Dr. Shiloh attempt to bring awareness to the impact the event had on April 20, 1999 and what we have learned since then. They discuss the contagion or “Columbine Effect” of media coverage of mass shootings, murder-suicide & stress event symptomology while not glamorizing the shooting or naming the murderers. They also look at the phenomenon of “Columbiners” and today’s state of school safety.
Although a serious subject, the doctors manage to work in a lighter mood and talk about Dr. Scott’s former dancing career.

Additionally, they explore the his son’s most infamous house in the heart of LA with the literal receipts linking it to the most notable unsolved murder in the city.
We critically examine the Amanda Knox case and Netflix documentary, Amanda Knox. We will catch you up on everything that occurred over the 8 years of this saga and examine the “troubling behavior” (not our words or impressions) of Amanda during the events. However, this episode is more about the other key players in the story that shaped the wrongful convictions. We also take a glimpse at what Ms. Knox is doing now in her post-trauamatic growth.
This episode bring us all back to our favorite true crime subject, serial killers. And not just your average serial killer, but the special breed of trucker serial killers.

They dish about the show itself and then relate Episode 6’s topics of Incels to Ted Kaczynski with a special guest. Retired FBI profiler and forensic linguist, James R. Fitzgerald, gives his insight into Kaczynski’s sexual development and struggles which was revealed in the Unabomber’s own personal writings. We explore all of this and more to determine whether or not Ted Kaczynski fits the mold of an incel.
