Mommy Dead and Dearest
It's Daisy's school vacation week, so Patrick is on full time dad duty! We'll be back with a brand new episode next week covering episodes 1 & 2 of Netflix's "The Ted Bundy Tapes." The following week, we'll cover episodes 3 & 4!**Mommy Dead And Dearest:** Late on the evening of June 14, 2015, deputy sheriffs in Greene County, Missouri, found the body of Dee Dee Blancharde laying facedown in a pool of blood from the stab wounds that had killed her several days earlier. There was no sign of her teenage daughter, Gypsy Rose, who, according to Blancharde, suffered from leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, and several other chronic conditions, and had the mental capacity of a 7-year-old. In the days and weeks that followed, the police came to understand the crime and the treacherous web of lies, child abuse, mental illness, and forbidden love that set the stage for this horrendous and brutal murder. [This week on Patreon](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed/posts), we're dropping the F**ULL VIDEO OF LAST WEEK'S LIVE SHOW!** We'll also be dropping the live show in podcast form on the [Patreon podcast feed](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed/posts)!

74: Grizzly Man
For 13 summers, Timothy Tredwell journeyed into the Alaskan wilderness to spend four months living among the grizzly bears. Though Treadwell believed that he and the bears had an understanding--he considered them his close friends--he and his girlfriend Amy Huguenard were eventually killed and devoured by one of the bears. For the five summers before his death, he took a video camera on his trips and shot over 100 hours of tape. "Grizzly Man", the brilliant documentary by master filmmaker Werner Herzog, tells the story of Treadwell's fascinating life and terrifying death--and uses much of treadwell's own footage to do so.  **WANT MORE TCO?** Who cold blame you!

73: Fyre Fraud
The Fyre Festival was the defining scam of the millennial generation. Marketing for the 2017 music event went viral with the help of rapper Ja Rule, instagram stars, and models, but wound up being an epic failure as it stranded thousands of people in the Bahamas. **Featuring an exclusive interview with Billy McFarland**, the convicted con-man behind the festival, FYRE FRAUD is a true-crime comedy documentary bolstered by a cast of whistleblowers, victims, and insiders.

I watched this documentary crazy-bugeyed-binge-style while dealing with severe post partum depression... p.s. my post-pregnancy, breast-milk-making cravings had me eating pod after pod after pod, bag after bag after bag of steamed edamame, why? hell if I know, but I think edamame is hella rich in calcium and protein, right? so that makes sense, when you have a tiny parasitic human being, sucking all of the nutrition out of your body for 9 months whilst inside and continues doing so once born by suckling it all back out of your body via your boobs! but, I digress... this doc filled with all of these super raunchy tales is beyond unbelievably on a grandiose scale of "oh. my. god!" i.. i... still cant fathom how that nasty ass priest was able to do all of what he had done and only ONE person, that poor dead nun, ever caught him and/or said anything worthwhile about what the kids were possibly leaking here and there-- that catholic shit is Hell's Bells of beyond the scariest shit to EVER disgrace whatever Gods children means to them •shaking my head in disbelief, disappointment and in all-consuming awe•

Just curious why are there so many sponsors?? it's like every 10 mins, there doesn't seem much to this podcast so I don't understand the need for so many sponsors.

Way too many ads in this episode. Yeah, I'm glad y'all are getting sponsored, but you spend way too long on each one.

True Crime Obsessed is the best.  While the topics can be dark, Gillian and Patrick handle everything with laugh-out-loud humor and an unwavering sense of right and wrong that leaves you somehow feeling happy, uplifted, and optimistic about the state of the world!

I love the laughter they share together. In a world going crazy everywhere, it's nice to hear from two people who love and enjoy each other. They make the unbearable bearable. Annie

minombre esnada Did you even read the rest of my comment? I already did join Patreon. These episodes aren't available ad-free when you join, it's different episodes. And it would still be fair to complain even as a nonpatron when the amount of ads double. It takes away from the listening experience.
