    For almost sixty years, the Kennedy assassination has occupied the hearts and minds of Americans. Hundreds of books have been written about the fateful day at Dealey Plaza in November of 1963, often offering elaborate and convoluted conspiracy theories about government plots, the Mafia, Cuba and the KGB.

    My guest is investigative journalist and bestselling author Gerald Posner. He believes that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in murdering President Kennedy. His critically acclaimed book, "Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK" was a 1994 Pulitzer Prize Finalist for History.

    In the years following World War II, serial killer John George Haigh committed five perfect murders, using sulphuric acid to dissolve his victims into soup. His sixth murder, however, was hastily done, and led to his arrest, a trial and eventual execution. The case captivated the United Kingdom, especially when Haigh claimed he had drunk a glass of each victim's blood before disposing of their bodies.

    My guest is Gordon Lowe, author of "The Acid Bath Murders: The Trials and Liquidations of John George Haigh". He walks us through Lowe's murderous life and eventual death at the hands of one of Britain's most famous executioners.

    On May 30, 1899, history was made when Pearl Hart, disguised as a man, held up a stagecoach in Arizona and robbed the passengers at gunpoint. A manhunt ensued as word of her heist spread, and Pearl Hart went on to become a media sensation and the most notorious female outlaw on the Western frontier. Hailed by many as “The Bandit Queen,” her epic life of crime and legacy as a female trailblazer provide a crucial lens into the lives of the rare women who made their mark in the American West.

    My guest, New York Times bestselling author and Old West historian John Boessenecker shares incredible stories from the life of Lily Davy (aka Pearl Hart) and her equally fascinating sister Katy Davy. His book is called "Wildcat: The Untold Story of Pearl Hart, the Wild West's Most Notorious Woman Bandit".

The best podcasts I’ve ever listened to

Hands down, this is my favorite podcaster. No talking about dogs, beer or anything frivolous. Just getting down to business with experts and authors who have spent vasts amounts of time researching historic crimes.

The host is quite modest. You can tell that he occasionally has better recall of certain facts than the person he is interviewing, yet he never interrupts or draws attention to his knowledge. Bravo! And no, I’m not his mother!😊

Intriguing!!

This podcast is really intriguing! The book authors have done the research and writing to bring these stories to light while Erik asks compelling questions that we all wish we could ask if we had the opportunity. Everyone's story is important and this podcast makes that a central focus.

America's Forgotten Crimes

This is an absolutely fabulous example of the genre, particularly for those of us who have heard the same 2 dozen crimes rehashed again and again. Eric never fails to present a crime story that has either been almost totally forgotten or never before looked at from a different angle. Completely binge-worthy.

Commercials

Pod cast is good but commercials are bad enough, but even worse when they are in a foreign language!
