Last episode was our birthday and this episode is our 50th! Cheers! For our 50th episode, Katy has two Washington-state stories that are spooky (Kell's Irish Pub) and spooky adjacent (the very tragic tale of the murder of Jennifer Bastian and how her ghost is reportedly seen in Point Defiance Park). We are, of course, ready as hell for the Animal C…
 
We're back with some spooky tales from the spookiest place on earth... Reddit. Katy and her scratchy voice went to r/letsnotmeet and found a few tales for MM to react to - do we believe they're real? Either way, let's not meet. There's a difference between people and FUCKING PEOPLE, you know what we mean? Also, if they say "stay on the trail," stay…
 
This week, MM brings us the tale of the only convicted witch in Virginia, Grace Sherwood, because spooky season is forever. But first, join us for millennial aunt advice corner, in which Katy espouses you should know thyself... and if you're not an entrepreneur. "A boner for land" is not a phrase we'd thought we'd ever say, but here we are. MM annu…
 
Happy Halloween and happy birthday to our little pod! Thanks for joining us as we've learned what we're doing and getting in on how much fun we're having. Here's to many more! For our Halloween/birthday episode, MM brings us the spooky story of the disappearance of David Stone shortly after Halloween. We both conclude that we should live in caves..…
 
SPOOKY SEASON continues on the Wine Times Mysteries, y'all! This week, Katy covers two more medical mysteries - the Oakville Blobs and the death of Gloria Ramirez, who has been dubbed the Toxic Lady, since several people treating her fainted and got sick. 1994 WAS A STRANGE TIME, OKAY? Contemplate your mortality~ Spooooky~ Drinking game this week: …
 
AND WE'RE BACK. Thank you for patience with Katy's hibernation and sorry for the unintentional cliffhanger - here's our resolution to the story of the Three Sisters in Black! Let's dig into what happened to poor Ocey Snead, the trial of her mother and her aunts, and the authorities trying to piece it all together. There are a lot of scams going on!…
 
We're headed back to the early 1900s with MM's story this week (spoiler alert: and next week!) with the story of the Three Sisters in Black - Caroline Martin, Mary Snead, and Virginia Wardlaw - and the many mysterious deaths surrounding them. Buckle up, y'all, this is the background part of the story and it is a doozy with ousin marriage, cashing i…
 
Katy watched the Circleville Letters episode of 48 Hours so you don't have to. Learn about the small town in Ohio that was terrorized by anonymous letters about town secrets, starting in 1976 and stopping in 1993. Hundreds of letters were sent, but the main target seems to be Mary Gillispie and her family. Also: two tiny internet mystery amuse bouc…
 
It's MM's turn at the wheel and she brings us the tale of the first televangelist in the U.S., Aimee Semple McPherson - her rise to prominence in the 1920s, and her strange disappearance and the circumstances around it. What do you think happened? We recorded this on Labor Day weekend where Katy resembled a burrito-eating gremlin and MM was eaten a…
 
Katy returns to her fandom roots this week with a tale of no-stakes internet drama: the tale of MsScribe and her rise and fall in the Harry Potter fandom. JK Rowling is trash, but the shenanigans the fandom got up to after the release of Goblet of Fire is DELICIOUS. But first! MM went on a road trip that was... something. Katy used to cosplay at an…
 
And we're back! MM's here with Part 2 of her story on the Order of the Solar Temple, where we do a deeper look into their origins and beliefs, as well as their two leaders, Joseph Di Mambro and Luc Jouret. There are a lot of bummers, you guys! Hey girl. Do you believe in past lives? If you did a past life regression, do you think you'd get a random…
 
A two parter? From MM? It's more likely than you think. MM's story this week is about a cult, the Order of the Solar Temple. In part one, she goes over the outcome of the story, where several events of mass death occur in 1994 and bring the Order into the public consciousness. The investigations into these deaths are MADDENING. But first, there's a…
 
Katy gets very literal this week and brings us a wine-based mystery by covering the story of Rudy Kurniawan, the first person to be charged with wine fraud in the U.S, from the 2016 documentary, "Sour Grapes." Content warning: you're really going to hate rich douchebags during this episode, but since you probably already DO... let's get into it. It…
 
MM unrolls the mile-long scroll of content warnings for the conclusion of her coverage of the Netflix documentary "Evil Genius." Find out what happened after authorities made the connection of the murder of Brian Wells to all of the shenanigans of Marjorie Diehl Armstrong and Bill Rothstein. Who the hell came up with over the hill parties? Katy has…
 
MM's telling a story that is full of way too many twists and turns to be contained in one episode: the 2003 murder of Brian Wells, which included a collar bomb, a bank heist, and lots of evil masterminding from Marjorie Diehl Armstrong. Also included, a BTS/Ginger Demon update. MM texting Katy about booby traps prompts no context questions or follo…
 
Katy brings you three mysteries from Washington's Olympic Peninsula - a mysterious tree fall of hundreds of trees around Lake Quinnault in 2018, the tale of Hallie Illingworth - the Lady of Lake Crescent, and the disappearance of Russell and Blanch Warren near Lake Crescent in 1929 that was solved 72 years later. Katy is being personally attacked b…
 
MM starts off this episode with some fun Lizard News... HOWEVER, she follows it up with a doozy of a mystery - the September 10, 2001 disappearance of Dr. Sneha Philip. Get ready to hate the patriarchy and heteronormativity (more than you already should and do). There are a lot of twists and turns here - get ready to take a drink any time we say HO…
 
We're back with Katy reporting in from the surface of the sun (...or Seattle in a historic heat cone) with some strange medical mysteries. If you are a hypochondriac... be warned, these maladies are wild and only provide more evidence that the brain is a terrifying place. Learn about aquagenic urticaria, or being ALLERGIC TO WATER, and a mystery br…
 
It's MM's turn for a story this week and we're headed back to Texas for the mystery of Pecos Jane Doe. Salina, Kansas teenager Jolaine Hemmy went missing in 1966 with only some suspicious postcards sent to her family as a trace of her. Meanwhile, a Jane Doe drowns in a pool at the Ropers Motel in Pecos, TX. There's a lot of twists and turns in this…
 
Hello, listeners - this week Katy brings you a smattering of Seattle/Washington state tales for you: a mysterious soda machine that dispenses rare sodas (hear us learn what Pepsi AM is in REAL TIME), but it currently off on a journey to find itself, a gravity hill where if you put your car in neutral it will go up the hill (because of... child ghos…
 
Katy's back to her proper coast so we are once again bicoastal besties. While we were mono-coastal, we took a little walk to a demonic house, which you get to hear all about, popped a bottle, and generally lived our best lives (and Katy got to meet PA Moxie). This week, MM brings us the tale of the Marion Murders of Fairfax County, VA, a story from…
 
Keeping the vibes right and tight, lizards! This week, Katy takes us back to Maryland due to listener feedback from the last episode, requesting tales of the Snallygaster, a Maryland cryptid possibly invented by moonshiners, its only natural enemy, the Dwayyo wolfman, and the Bunny Man, a scary tale based on a real story from... [checks notes] Fair…
 
MM brings us the story of the Love Has Won cult and the rise and mysterious fall of its "Mother God," Amy Carlson. Love Has Won originated in 2006 and hold on to your butts, this is a RIDE. We talk about our own levels of susceptibility for cults, our preferred excuses for if we find ourselves in the line for brands (GO BIG), the telltale signs of …
 
Mark Weiss reports from Jerusalem where there is a possibility of a ceasefire between Hamas militants in Gaza and Israel. What needs to happen to make a ceasefire work, and how do Israelis feel about the conflict that has claimed many more Palestinian than Israeli lives and been met with widespread condemnation as disproportionate?…
 
This week, Katy brings four Maryland-based stories to the table, hon. Learn along with MM about Maryland's own equal opportunity Goatman, the abandoned Glenn Dale Hospital, the curse of Moll Dyer, and the sad true crime tale of the Lyon Sisters. Hold on to your butts: there is a nearly 10-minute discussion of various non-salad salads of the 70's, l…
 
Listeners, how did you get interested in true crime and mysteries? This week, we're delving into MM's backstory in the Wine Times Cinematic Universe to hear some local lore and true crime from northern Texas (from approximately near things but also near nothing) and what it was like to hear these as a bebe MM. Stories include a local goatman, the G…
 
Joe Biden has spent his first 100 days as US president powering through an ambitious agenda and tackling issues on the economy, coronavirus and climate policy. What are the key actions he has taken thus far and where has he fallen short? Washington correspondent Suzanne Lynch joins Chris Dooley to take a look back at the start of his presidency.…
 
This week, we're joined by our first real guest (but not listener), Super Husband, who talks about how he knew Ed Chen before the murders, what it was like to find out, what Great Falls was like back in the 90s, and his own takes on the story of the Chen Family Murders. Look at us! Who would've thought? We also talk about Super Husband's SECOND bru…
 
In the Indian capital of New Delhi, one person is reportedly dying of Covid-19 every four minutes. With a population of 1.3 billion, the surge in new infections has pushed the country’s health system to breaking point, with hospitals running out of critical supplies of oxygen and available beds to treat the seriously ill. In this episode Irish Time…
 
Hello, listeners... We're taking a break from Beyond Belief for a few weeks (but staying in the 90s) to cover a true crime case that is local to MM's neck of the woods and we have a coincidental connection to: the Chen Family murders in Great Falls, Virginia in August 1995. Ed Chen murdered his mother, father, and brother in their home and went und…
 
Angela Merkel is on her last lap as German Chancellor and will stand down when September’s federal election ends her fourth and final term in office. Meanwhile her party, the ruling Christian Democratic Union, is trapped in a high-stakes stand-off with its Bavarian ally, the Christian Social Union. The impasse? Which of their leaders should guide t…
 
Season 2, Episode 13 of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction goes out with a whimper and its leftover stories, but that doesn't mean we don't have a blast covering them and coming full circle with our nostalgia and love of mysteries. (And full circle with something inexplicably going wonky with Katy's audio.) Pro tip: If you're holding a baby, try to hol…
 
In this episode we break our record for how long it takes us to intro the podcast, but don't let that scare you. Welcome to Season 2, Episode 12 of Beyond Belief, Fact or Fiction where the theme(?) is a ~touch of evil.~ We're headed to Florida (honestly, they could set a whole season of this show and it would all be fact, amirite), a demon-infested…
 
Dan McLaughlin explains the background to a new flare-up in the war in eastern Ukraine between the government in Kiev and Russian-backed separatists, and the news that Russia has sent troops and tanks to its border with Ukraine for what it insists are military exercises. Why is trouble in the region increasing now, and is the threat of a major esca…
 
Brazil's Covid-19 case numbers and deaths have hit staggering new highs in the past month: over 60,000 died in March alone. Now it is facing a political crisis to match its health crisis. President Jair Bolsonaro, his authority undermined by the raging pandemic, sacked his defence minister and three top military chiefs in what looks like a struggle…
 
This episode is purposefully in a shambles, listeners, since Season 2, Episode 11 of Beyond Belief focuses on DISASTERS. Can rings melt together to save you from a fateful voyage? Can someone sense a volcano eruption on the other side of the world in their dreams? Can a director stop these actors from mouthbreathing? Do angels pick a few people to …
 
Voters in Israel went to the polls this week in a bid to free the country of the political stalemate that has seen it hold four elections in two years.But after another cliffhanger result, the deadlock continues and it may be weeks before it becomes clear if prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu will be able to form another government.Exit polls after …
 
We are obSESSED with the late 90s references and styles on Beyond Belief, listeners, but not the casual late 90s racism. Katy's guessing again for Season 2, Episode 10 this week, where the stories are animal-related and exasperated-sigh-inducing. America is obSESSED with motorcycles, but not Danny's Hog Heaven or random Jay Leno name drops. We keep…
 
Brazil's often chaotic political scene got even more complex recently when former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's conviction for corruption was suddenly overturned. Will Lula's expected return to politics, combined with the government's disastrous pandemic response, spell the end for current right-wing president Jair Bolsonaro?…
