That's Odd Episode 26 - Odd Cult Ties

In the late 1970s, the world was shocked by the events at Jonestown when over 900 followers of the People's Temple cult committed suicide at the behest of their leader Jim Jones. One family was able to escape the grip of the cult before that horrific day, however they would meet with another horrific end. And, in late December 1961, Brian Dutton returned home from a long day at work in Liverpool to find his wife Maureen the victim of a vicious stabbing. His two children were left alive, nothing was stolen from the home, and there was no sign of break in or struggle. Investigators were convinced a cult was to blame. Others weren't so sure.

That's Odd Episode 23 - Two Totally Different Kinds of Killers

This week, Chris and Johnny explore two very different kinds of killers. One would terrify almost everyone she met, eventually committing one of Australia's most gruesome crimes and becoming the first woman in the country to be sentenced to life imprisonment without the chance of parole. The other would be considered one of the nicest men to live in the town of Carthage, Texas, caring for half the town in their times of despair, and eventually befriending a woman who would lose her life at his hands. 

Disclaimer: Johnny asked that we warn listeners - His story is rather gruesome and can be a little much to hear for those who may be sensitive to such things. If you'd like to skip it, Chris's story starts at around 28:30.

Episode 51 - The Horror House of H. H. Holmes

In the mid 1890s, the nation would become fascinated with a man who would go on to be known as America's first serial killer. Though the exploits of a certain Jack the Ripper had recently become known throughout the world due to the graphic and horrific displaying of his victims, much of the shock stemming from the crimes of H. H. Holmes was due in part to the secrecy in which he carried out the terrible acts of murder. And, when Chicago police raided his home after his arrest in 1895, the rest of the world would soon forget about the Whitechapel Murder and focus their attention on the Horror House of H. H. Holmes.

That's Odd Episode 20 - Duke Impractical Joker

On this episode of That's Odd, Mexican general Antonio López de Santa Anna is well known for having led Mexico against Texan revolutionaries in the Mexican-American War and later becoming president. What many people don't know is that he was once forced out of retirement to face the French army, only to lose his leg in battle. What he did with the leg next would leave many scratching their heads. And, pranks and practical jokes have been around since the beginning of time. Pulling out one's chair as they are about to sit, dousing clothing in itching powder and exploding golf balls never fail to elicit a laugh from most people. Taking advantage of the gullibility of the public can be said to be just as funny. At least, it was to a certain Duke of Montagu. Join Chris and Johnny as they take a look at some of the more odd moments in history on this episode of That's Odd!
