On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. It was one of the most notorious hate crimes in US history. Years later, Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt's, revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos and rare video footage as Matt's all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of his family and closest friends.  Through the film, new revelations about the murder are revealed and the notions of forgiveness, loss, and redemption are explored by those who were there. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

88: Oklahoma City

On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh, a former soldier deeply influenced by the literature and ideas of the radical right, parked a Ryder truck with a five-ton fertilizer bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City. Moments later, 168 people were killed and 675 were injured in the blast. OKLAHOMA CITY traces the events--including the deadly encounters between American citizens and law enforcement at Ruby Ridge and Waco--that led McVeigh to commit the worst act of domestic terrorism in American history.LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE EARTH IS FLAT?Turns out, there are LOTS of people believe it is. Is their evidence compelling? Not really, but their conspiracies run deep and cross over into everything from being anti-vaccination to, you know, believing that the school systems invented dinosaurs to keep kids dumb...or something like that. For us, this was 90 minutes of rage, and that always makes for a great episode. Enjoy. ALSO THE EARTH IS FLAT.LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

## FAM! QUEEN GILLIAN GOT SUPER SICK THIS WEEK AND SO WE HAD TO RUN A CLASSIC EPISODE! First please note that, unbeknownst to us before we picked this episode to rerun, **THIS IS THE EPISODE WHERE WE INVENTED BOTH OUR THEME SONG AND…WAIT FOR IT…THE GARBAGE BELL!!** Any-who, Gillian is much better now and we'll be back next week with that bonkers #FlatEarthDoc "Behind the Curve. ENJOY!Meet Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming with an IQ of 168\. 30 years ago, she fell in love with a young Mormon named Kirk. When Kirk disappeared and then turned up a few months later in the UK, Joyce was convinced he’d been kidnapped and was being held against his well. Determined to get him back, Joyce set off on a journey that would lead her across the globe, into jail, and onto the front pages of the most popular tabloids of the time. Her crusade for love took her through a surreal world of kidnapping, manacled Mormons, risqué photography, magic underwear, and celestial sex.

Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four excavates the nightmarish persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez - four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls in San Antonio, Texas. The film begins its journey inside a Texas prison, after these women have spent nearly a decade behind bars. They were 19 and 20 years old at the time the allegations surfaced. Using the women's home video footage from 21 years ago combined with recent verité footage and interviews, the film explores their personal narratives and their search for exculpatory evidence to help their losing criminal trials.**LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

Who killed Marsha P. Johnson?When the beloved, self-described "street queen" of NY's gay ghetto was found floating in the Hudson River in 1992, the NYPD chalked it up as a suicide and refused to investigate. But Marsha was a lover of life and many who knew her refused to believe she would have taken her own life. Now, a quarter century later, at a time of unprecedented visibility and escalating violence in the transgender community, Marsha's old friend and fellow activist Victoria Cruz has taken it upon herself to reexamine what happened to Marsha. Dipping deep into jaw-dropping archival footage of another era of New York City life, The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson follows as this champion pursues leads, mobilizes officials, and works to tell the story of Marsha's life and get to the bottom of Marsha's death.[](https://www.truecrimeobsessed.com/see-us-live)**[COME TO OUR PRIDE SHOW!](https://www.truecrimeobsessed.com/see-us-live) **Come hang with us in NYC on the 50th Anniversary of The Stonewall Riots.

First time to this podcast. The Oswald show episode 68. The male host's excited laugh talking in a high tone is incredibly irritating. I like the audio cut ins and the info is ok but I don't know if I can get past the delivery. Bummer.

I like the show, I haven't listened in awhile though, not for any reason. But I want to give you some unsolicited constructive criticism. The constant extreme laughing, to me, feels very disrespectful and uncomfortable. I am all for making comments to lighten to the mood, as these topics are very heavy, but it's too much. I believe you have good intentions, maybe find a better balance between telling the story and yelling and laughing. I thought maybe it was just one episode, but I went through a few of your recent ones and they all seem to be like this.

Krystle Boyd I 100% agree. I don't know what to think or how to take this show. Is is comedic relief? I found it excessive as well and uncalled for in some areas. I was initially thinking ok a comedic relief I get it but the cackling wow. It's frankly turning me away.
