    America’s Highway Serial Killers /// Part 2 /// 591

    Part 2 of 4 


    www.TrueCrimeGarage.com

    This week we start off by looking at an unsolved homicide of a young woman from California. Twenty two year old Kristin Alice Schmidt’s body was recovered from a State Park in Oregon. She was killed elsewhere and her body dumped and discovered by campers. As we started to look at Kristin’s still very active case investigation we learned that something larger may be at hand. Something so much larger than any one investigation. Something larger than an Oregon state investigation. America has a problem that was first identified back in the 1980’s. In April of 2009 the F.B.I. announced their Highway Serial Killings Initiative to raise awareness among law enforcement agencies and the general public about this issue and the F.B.I.’s offered assistance in these cases.

    Murder in the Neighborhood /// Part 2 /// 589

    Part 2 of 2 


    www.TrueCrimeGarage.com

    With school and workplace shooters such a hot topic these days, this week we thought we would look back on a mass shooting that took place in the good old days. As you know, we here in the Garage would never claimed to be able to solve some of our nations most devastating problems but we will try to understand them. Better understanding of very important issues can help and lead to creating solutions. Now, we have to remember that the good old days weren’t always good and it certainly was not a good day when Howard Unruh decided to “get even” with some people in the neighborhood. This week in the Garage we try to beat the heat by cracking a few cold ones and talking about murderer so cold that you will have a hard time believing that you had not heard of this guy before. 

    Beer of the Week - Heavy Boots of Lead by SingleCut Beersmiths

Completely Addicted

Love the scope of the show, especially like the interview with James Renner. The Garage Guys draw you in little by little and manage to be both entertaining and passionate about the people's stories they tell.

The show just gets better and better!

I have listened to dozens of true crime shows. I'd have to say this is my number one. I've listened to every single episode. There is a difference between the first year or so to the current year. They really developed quickly into a good flow. They are always respectful to victims and are funny at appropriate times. They don't go out of the way to be comedians but are funny nonetheless. It is awesome that they have had effect on helping real cases and advocate for the missing and unsolved. The music is top notch as well!

The best in the true crime podcast genre

Nic and the Captain make a great and entertaining duo. The music is phenomenal and unique each show. They do an excellent job of researching and telling the story as well as exploring difference of opinions. Love the Captain’s bits of humor here and there to lighten the mood a bit. If I could only listen to one podcast, this is the one!

Simply the best

The best true crime coverage I've fou d so far. And my search is over. Nic and the Captain make you feel like you are right there in the garage with them. They make sure that they are only sharing truth or they tell you if it is just a belief or speculation. Much love for these two and all they do to keep the podcast going!
