Did you go out and vote yesterday?! I sure hope you did because democracy is important and the future of America is in our hands! Way back in the early 2000s, a man named Gary Condit served as a US Representative. When a woman he was having an affair went suddenly vanished, all eyes turned to him. Could he have been the next Bill Clinton but took t…
 
Pride Month is...well it's very much over but that doesn't mean I can't do a series about crimes against the LGBTQ+ community, right? After all, with abortion being banned state by state, we all know our super Christian Supreme Court is coming after my rights as a gay man next so pardon me while I build my people up. Angie Zapata was a brave trans …
 
The final trick-or-treat is here as we finish our Halloween story marathon. Make sure to check your children's candy this year. Some houses have been hiding Ronald Clark O'Bryan inside the chocolate! Or did Ronald hide razor blades in his candy...I don't know. I'm getting my stories mixed up. Originally broadcast October 27, 2021. Written and narra…
 
The Halloween fun continues! Let's take a journey to West Virginia for a real live (or dead...) ghost story. Is this a case of a ghost solving her own murder? Some people certainly think so.

Happy Halloween! Whelp we're still stuck in Plainfield and little Eddie Gein's all grown up now. Trust me you do not want to miss the exciting conclusion to his story.

Happy Halloween! Today's episode finds us in Plainfield, Wisconsin. It seems to be a sleepy little town where everyone gets along with their neighbors...unless your neighbor happens to be the Gein family. Augusta Gein is a very religious woman and if you drink, swear, or wear clothing she deems too skimpy, you're a dirty sinner. One could say she's…

Let's start up t…
 
My dreams are either super weird or super terrifying. Chester Poage had the terrifying brand of dream one night when he saw his mother and sister die in a plane crash. Was it an ominous warning? Or just a silly dream? Well Elijah Page has the answer though he's been suffering from his own real-life nightmare: a trip down memory lane to his traumati…
 
We all have that neighborhood weirdo we kinda hope moves off the block and sometimes, WE'RE that strange banana on the street. Even in the late 1800s and early 1900s, folks dealt with unique individuals in their town. For the folks of Niagara, North Dakota, that man was Eugene Butler. But could crazy old Eugene really have murdered five men and bur…
 
Growing up, I was bullied in school. Heck, I think most kids were. Some days were harder than others and I always wished it would stop. I never imagined causing harm to anyone though. Seth Bartell and John Jason McLaughlin were sorta like me and my bullies. Jason, however, would do something I could never possibly want to do let alone act upon. Ple…
 
And we're BACK! Hope y'all haven't missed us too much. We've been delayed in Arkansas's Clinton Airport on our DTS Roadtrip Across America but we're very excited to FINALLY have a flight to Iowa. While we're traveling, we're thinking about looking at homes for sale since we're CLEARLY rich enough to own one...Speaking of homes, I heard you need a r…
 
Our next stop on our murderous road trip across America is New York. It's been 21 years since two planes crashed into the World Trade Centers in New York City and forever changed the lives of Americans. Being in second grade, I didn't fully understand what the events of that day meant and I certainly never heard about a Polish immigrant named Henry…
 
College was a really fun part of my life but campuses can be dangerous places. I received many an e-mail from campus police about a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault on campus and the steps we can do to protect ourselves (one of the many reasons Roe V. Wade should not be overturned btw). Whenever we received those e-mails, the student body…
 
Whenever I listen to or read the news these days I learn a lot of things are now banned in classrooms because they make students uncomfortable. In fact, just this past week I read a quick blurb about 41% of Florida's math textbooks are going under review because they allegedly teach critical race theory. Though it's unpleasant to feel uncomfortable…
 
If the 2000s have shown us anything it is the popularity of social media "challenges." Tide Pod, Cinnamon, and 10 Year are just a few that come to mind. Does anybody else remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Ugh I'm still steamed that I was NEVER nominated. So to make up for my FOMO I have nominated myself to take part in an even more exciting ch…

Written and narrated by Schuyler Fa…
 
I'm not famous by any means BUT I was hounded by the press once. Okay so maybe hounded isn't the BEST choice of words. A reporter got out of his car right as I happened to be walking home from high school, he saw my book bag, and asked me about our new lunch options at school and whether I agreed with the government regulations of our lunches or no…

Anyone as obsessed with true crime and mysteries as I am will surely know the story of the Axeman of New Orleans. He terrorized Italian immigrants in the early 1900s and introduced us to the term "jazz it." But did you know this was not the first incident of an unknown person (or persons) terrorizing Louisiana with an ax? It probably won't come as …

Happy Halloween Deadtime Storians! My family's Halloween 'traditions' were probably vastly different than yours and I'm almost positive my parents were part of that gang of adults who swore someone was putting razor blades in our chocolate! So how did such a wild story start and why do we still believe a real life Boogie Man is hunting down our kid…

Next stop... Michigan. If Pizza Hut and Taco Bell could make a fusion restaurant work then surely Patricia and Kevin Artz could too. Y'all have heard of Kip's Pizza and Taco House, right? No? Well let me introduce you to it. If we're really nice, maybe The Deep Fry Killer himself will talk to us...then again he might be too high to do that. Too bad…

Stop number three on the Original Deadtime Stories Murderous Road Trip Across America is Pennsylvania. Back in high school I tried so hard to make a movie with my best friends. I assumed we could totally make a feature length film in one week and needless to say, it went absolutely terribly. Maybe I should've asked for five thousand dollars from ev…

We know I am OBSESSED with competition reality shows so when I can marry those with true crime, I'm one happy fan boy. Survivor may have been postponed due to COVID-19 but that won't stop us from gossiping about it and the drama that went on behind the scenes with one of their producers, his wife, and a trip to Mexico. Can they outwit, outplay, and…
 
What's the biggest trend in TV right now? Nostalgia. In the past week-ish alone we've seen the premiere of a Rugrats reboot, a Friends reunion, and the announced return of Legends of the Hidden Temple (all of which I love by the way). When I think of 90s nostalgia I think of a trip to our local Blockbuster video rental. The place was so popular tha…

Imagine your favorite vacation ever! Maybe you went camping in a national park. Did you bring your significant other and children along?

That would certainly ruin your vacation. W…
 
The murders of Devon and Damen Routier have fascinated me ever since I saw a documentary series on them.

Written by Jordan Katcher, narrated by Schuyler Fastenau and e…

How's that old COVID-19 joke go? Murder your spouse now, blame it on the corona virus later? If you're a fan of true crime memes then you probably saw this at some point last year. In Florida, it became a reality. Of course this wasn't the first time a virus was used as a weapon. Just a few years ago, Daryll Rowe harnessed HIV to attack other gay m…
