town thinks are coming that scare until the started like it's super uncomfortable we got over this a million times were staring this waiting staring each other to see who's going to go first and then the fake guest voices to offer come out of our heads and then wastes gas to start over but we don't say we never plan anything I mean what the plan the plan or anyone who cares anyway all the things have you seen a picture the newest pictures of a comeback from the Hubble telescope that show the Galaxy's the purple bead It basically it's like black background and they did purple where the galaxies in the picture and orange was the gas the different things of gas that makes stars in it like there's a countless number of galaxies in this photo anxiety attack I'm just saying Who cares at

aliens clearly I mean an I'm actually Irish I dah worse the the um there's the duvet podcast you love mysteries abound to go to sleep too unlike the last episode is like ours are humans actually aliens and it's like my guests I got so episode that mile went to Petaluma for Father's Day I landed came and pick me up I got into the car and was like so the thing is that there's a greater chance for all to explain it very poorly it's not like I don't I don't remember them and turned him in one night Elvis was a damn im sad to think after a life of his dislike know I am now I he has the like or what they called he's the voice Yes them oh speaking of which there's a reason we can never think of the word trophy and I would like to say I would like to take responsibility for his I think every time it's happened it's been in and as a serial killer takes trophies yet they take a thing may keep it so they can look at it remember about being a dad that's called a trophy give it up the word Memento which is what he is the same word yet but I guess I guess the most often used term and the ones that people Stewie to us in all caps exclamation points and the trophy from the So maybe here in the podcasting loft which we finally moved into an everyone or you can ever tweet text or put pictures I just like didn't feel like it was done yet but I should just post it so that you guys all of the awsome are few centers and goals as an pictures and everything Georgia has arranged in her loft excessively and it looks so cool it's a super fun reading and on them social media but there's like things I want to frame stolen things I need to put up here and there but I'll post it for now and there's let sit for couldn't talk straight yes I thought it was funny when I hung a crooked yes twice I'd immediately and it made me laugh it's driving me crazy like a decade as a Second City I got a point there's a reason is that I don't need to download app and is a or who second half that you did you come up for anything now man on the grid goes down we're going to force crude nothing will be straight and no friends will be straight and that you won't know even if there are are like land lines of family could you do you know you even your own phone number via Jim I know I have I been so nice purposely were memorized each other's enemy to colors day or night today that like I'm super prepared trying to prepare for earthquakes you know once I got Lake ext this is boring the the boring to hear DJs coke thing here in a cover for at least thirty seconds well what I'm preparing for earthquakes is necessary and a reality California but would you do buy some flashlights the engine up a little flashlight I have of external batteries in my car in my hand crank I moan on the phone like like to have a charge break listen everyone be prepared that's it's a very important let go and live in earthquake it in my front closet but only think of is what if that's the part a house that goes down like little out of the collapse of what is I stick flashlights under everything in my and I've I had to sign a piece of paper declaring that my house is on land that if there's a strong earthquake it turns to liquid and sinks into the earth what I will get my own sinkhole which has as many people know one of my great passions of life is in coleslaw I have a question what kind of like a liquid are we talking about because it's something fine like Kool guess I was a coiled spring under the file home no it's because I'm near the Cotton Cordell there is one that's feet from my door yes well that goes right up kind wind that creates the water table is great I guess close to under my house so basically the ground shakes the girl the kind of the silt or ground will just mix with the water become like sand quicksand the and good bye can I So just things to who skippers the back stairs this places where there isn't and won't be earthquakes ever high you never know though I think there's a geologist who listens to a quick doctor yes definitely took a few emails they are completely incorrect about all of this and for my sign paperwork lists home speaking of it but I'm not though experts that's right I know that a letter an email from the girls who excited in fucking insane mainline murders last week yes and that girl who was his dad was involved in the case the mass whoa okay I sense a menu cover the mainline last episode as my dad was very closely involved in the case he prosecuted Karen rants lever William Bradford patches patches that provides after stealing from her estate to the one thing he got me any time he described Brad field as a master manipulator and a truly despite being a prosecutor for over thirty years including hundreds behind bars including billionaire John du Pont who wait is up to a cross Hawks catcher the my dad says no cases ever affected him cry like this fine he's a father of four daughters Annie still tears up and talks about the kids that innocent children in the discovery of Karen's art museum on the floor the car and by the way actually call her Carol at the very end of it and let's just say you were off the page though you are just trying to talk and yes that's always a mistake I made the mistake that were were dedicated to make never apologize for like I just about the patches and Principal Smith were co conspirators he thinks and that patches had agreed I'm re I'm just going to miss yet agreed to split Karen's life insurance money with the prince of awe in exchange for killing Karen and her children to this day he still heartbroken over the police mishandling evidence that led to J Smith's conviction being thrown out thank you I say much except track set trap dominated a FK things against a sex game murder Briana PS and Steve into the act will carry the fee on find my own and their CIA says they I'll decide after getting cut at seven p S Even still nope i i is Stephen state he steam in

don't mistake that for innocence orc or any kind a don't miss his kindness for gentleness as the saying the mistake my weakness for kindness like that I saw that one time on It by Stephen this is going profile I call a clip of this podcast is the whole thing where when I've decided okay I think you should take it over to what's called Too Many Fish in the Christian dating site too many fishes that was FARC or anything I like this so I feel has yes even religion what's really important meal I I over too many fish and then make a change of pace speaking of traveling the one thing as quickly as the end of the email did she start calling because Karen was the daughter yet right now because though may have the discovery of Karen's art museum at the floor the car so the kids the kid but then later the air a she may have at what can I not just me for a moment now I feel half of the mother's hse now this isn't right okay anyways the area were just so just so actually start was a run through

the one we are blessed truly blessed truly truly truly locates me this week right yes yes I know now you know Susan can pay attention to the styling of the IDF will ever see yes his narrow back roll a row on again what a bummer though I think that we have this often is that mine at the end and I hate closing with a real bummer yeah but something that's positive that's why we turn hard we had a hard left in the positive lands people like and murder podcasts are real bummer they don't know if it's the whole point ok mine that it's her sometimes as we're about to get for me to get my home are done it's the A and especially I will work on something for awhile and then if I've a friend who goes have ever I will immediately my friend I switch a switch in a new half lead and Saunders it no ice which all the time via the fans so stories because you know you guys aren't just isn't a true crime if not more than either of us so often times you feel like I'm only telling a third of the story I know have read an entire book about this whatever other people to come so sometimes just because I know has much more to it and should invest more time and I can get adjusted sucess rate exact someone else already has but this was it so much from my friend Bridger is the one who told me about it he's hilarious he's he's very famous on Twitter and he's a great writer and he grew up in Utah so he was like Have you ever heard and I anything about it turns out there's a Friends of files there's lots of stuff there's an amazing book um but anyway ounce give you I'll give so word saw were in Salt Lake City but this was our cars called anything I'm not calling because I usually I end up giving us I told her she sorts the Lake City the morning of October fifteen to nineteen eighty five when a man named Steve Christiansen husband a father of four and a bishop of the Mormon church here eyes at his office on the sixth floor of the judge building in downtown Salt Lake City up one time I did a story and it was that horrible her kids off the top of the hotel in Utah in Salt Lake City even greater than in throughout the day random that it was a very because you know all of you talk I assume that saw Lake City would be a conservative ten well I was kind of about that would like to say now I now know because of making a mistake that actually saw Lake City is the like the liberal part of Utah and it's a college town it's the hip places it's probably best case area and if you're looking for I don't know a great shirt or some really cool flats and I are so deceived Christensen gets to his office he sees a brown wrapped box shaped package office door and his names written on top of it he picks it up and immediately immediately explodes home fuck care of I know something else than this is fuckin let's do yet so it was a pipe bomb I see is killed in the tobacco and fight yeah it's it will pipe bomb that with concrete nails were inside and concrete nails are the nails to pound of concrete you're strong industrial size nails to pound into concrete so the person that made this pipe bomb wanted the person who picked it up to be killed from her yet so the ATF officers arrived they begin to piece the bomb back together to figure out that it's a pipe bomb um and that was activated by a mercury switch that would go off when the package was picked up in the of men at the Mercury like chefs exactly it's a little glass or get her and if it in a tool is laying glass thing and then when you pick it up if you are the tip it one or the other the circuit came next and that's when the bomb explodes they know from a bomb like that that the person that the bomber dropped in that box off because to make sure it stays exactly the weight as I can email you can't just get somebody else and so on I also inside the bomb worked and batteries which is as many RC enthusiasts Candy is the RadioShack brand of batteries really um so they locate the local radio shacks trying to find out who's bought batteries there and you know the past week or ever they also I find out that Steve Christiansen and recently worked at a financial company called CFS which after doing huge business and the seventies and early eighties had started losing money and was in serious trouble so this is the part actually found really interesting cuz so the like a time of big money pretended to be rich and preppy Zahn Izod Coke time and apparently at the Salt Lake City in that time for financial fraud really so what people would do Carmen would go to Salt Lake City and they would kind of like get get into they would either pretend be friends higher ups in the Mormon church and then when they would do business they would say it like say they're in securities the whatever stocks bought a like I got a ground floor second thing get in on exactly and then the elders or whoever in the church would be like Oh this guy A trustworthy all the parishioners or the Mormons I'm not sure what you call the general word for butt all the people in that church would then trust that person and buy into whatever the person was bringing to the table high finance or are also very popular a pyramid scheme vitamin sales got to be very popular with the fuck back then yes it was kind of an ant there is let's am weighing the kind of bullshit going at the vitamins they ever get the vitamin they ever get the vitamins I don't know but it was a it was a kind of thing they call it um affinity fraud and it happens in lots of different kinds different kinds of religions this is my money as an arm and right and trust no one it's the same it's the at the assumption and quote him quote one of your own is going to look out for your as opposed to an outsider anyone you know I'm scared I'm scared of how whatever the fuck am I a lake and scared i that's its sole I anyone can tell you anything if you don't know exactly what's going on a duty to you it's a hundred percent pure truck and people are that like there in yeah okay so it's the same thing Bernie Madoff did too he got twenty as you well know watching that documentary that come from wealthy Jewish people a guy named Allen Stanford it to Southern Baptists how a seven million or seven billion empire that fell there is even a con man named Monroe L beachy who became a trusted within the Amish community and he went to prison for orchestrating a scheme that defrauded twenty seven hundred investors the deck so it's just a very common practice this idea that your religion would would stand for your good morals and that day that therefore the business is trustworthy Thomas Morse Kahn you know clients because these people are trusting because they because here in Maryland and it's because you believe the same things you have the and their tit they're going the inside not just standing out like rolling the dice and maybe there they're asking you are playing on your ultimate faith yet which is very ugly and and um the Mormon it was the kind of thing where there are a I believe that know lots of Mormons I've grown up I grew up with Mormons good friends that are used to work with Betsy is a Mormon and you know it's it's a very moralistic date the life they live is really the whole idea of it is that you live this life based on your face so it's like my friend us at the other days like Mormons the walk yeah so it's not just animate this because sewer hose like design that you see these days and when you trace them back it's like a young Mormon family and it's like the most beautiful you know table the cutest design it's like yours a great thing for your baby have heard so many bloggers like famous bloggers are like the big one fabulous sites are Mormon for some reason ye because it's kind of like it's that the whole idea of like home building and yet like putting the best Indy are home right and being ambitious having something anyways yeah yeah I mean these are insane we're not speaking for every single person that's in the religion but there's just something to that effect something to that um where'd tears and there there seems to be an innocence that that in the seventies like we can exploit this this community the sense of community that I have like um okay two hours after Steve Christiansen zz attack there's another bombing at the home of Gary and Kathy Sheetz Gary sheets was Steve Christiansen boss at CFS and his wife Kathy was the one who picked up the package it exploded in her hands and she was killed only to how I never heard of
