One day his penis just fell off. But doctors had an experimental new way to grow it back... 4 years ago, Malcolm MacDonald developed a rare blood infection. His outer extremities turned black - including his penis. However, unlike the rest of his limbs, one day Malcolm got out of bed and his penis fell off on the floor. He went through a period of shame, depression, and low confidence. That was until some doctors came to him with an experimental idea for how to restore his manhood. And it involved...growing it on his arm? On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the real-life trans-humanist body horror of Malcolm MacDonald - AKA Dickarm.

A weird, somewhat disturbing interview with the leader of the Flat Earth Movement, Mark Sargent. A few years ago, an idea started catching on that was exclusively perpetuated by social media algorithms on platforms like YouTube and Facebook. The idea was not a new one - in fact it was 100s of years old. It was the idea that our world is, in fact, not round but flat. More specifically, it's a flat disk covered by an impenetrable dome that was built by some kind of ancient celestial being that is keeping us encased in our dome prison. Throughout the years, this belief has gained a surprising amount of popularity. So what? It's just some looney conspiracy theory. However, in the age of social media, when fringe lunacy can create movements with real-world consequences, and we're pushed further and further away from a collectively agreed-upon objective truth, this movement is much more insidious than you might assume. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we follow up our deep dive on the Flat Earth Movement with a 2-hour interview with one of the leaders of the movement, Mark Sargent, so we could ask him about why he believes what he believes and how he thinks this movement was able to spread so fast in the age of social media. 01010111 01010100 01000110 00111111  Learn more about your ad choices.

One filmmaker got men who committed a genocide to play themselves in a movie about the genocide. In the mid-60s, a fascist regime in Indonesia enlisted several paramilitary militias and two-bit gangsters to murder millions of innocent people labeled as communists. The event was re-written in their history books as heroic, and all the men responsible for the genocide are still in charge and walking free. Nobody knew the truth about what really happened until documentary filmmaker, Joshua Oppenheimer, decided to make a documentary about it. But instead of interviewing victims, he interviewed the actual murderers responsible, and he discovered they were more than willing to share the explicit details of their war crimes. They'd even...dress up in costumes and re-enact the murders in a movie about the genocide where they play themselves. And thus, The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence, twin documentaries, were made and changed the country of Indonesia forever.

Lisa Frank and her husband used all that money to throw cocaine parties and abuse their employees. All throughout the 90s, Lisa Frank products were the huge back to school craze of the decade. Girls everywhere wore their brightly-colored backpacks, stored paper in their vibrantly-rendered folders, and wrote their homework onto kitty-and-puppy-adorned notebooks with dolphin-and-tiger-emblazoned pencils. They couldn't get enough of Lisa Frank. However, behind the scenes in an office building in Tucson, Arizona, something much darker was going on at Lisa Frank headquarters. Employees report being screamed at, having chairs thrown at them, being locked in rooms for being late, and even picking up bags of cocaine and porn for their bosses. Lisa Frank and her husband, James Green, created a culture of fear, abuse, screaming, fighting, and had drug-fueled benders behind closed-doors. These are the claims made by multiple former Lisa Frank employees. Are they true? And who exactly is the enigmatic Lisa Frank? On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the warped, rainbow colored world of Lisa Frank.

He used to be a hero, but now he exploits the abuse of children for views and money. In the 80s and 90s, he was a hard-hitting journalist, tackling some incredibly important stories that shed light on issues like slave labor, the crack cocaine epidemic, and child trafficking. In the early 2000s he was host of the insanely popular TV show, To Catch a Predator. For a while, Chris Hansen was a legitimate celebrity, probably the most famous of any reporter, and beloved by all as a literal hero doing a great public service. However, somewhere along the way he lost sight of the altruistic nature of what he was doing, and now he spends his days shamelessly exploiting underage abuse victims for YouTube views and a quick buck. In part 3 of Deep Cuts' exploration of Hansen, we look at the increasingly unfortunate YouTube career of Hansen, his dealings with pyramid schemes and scams, and ultimately reflect on his larger role in the damage caused to several of the victims he purported to help.

A single photo this former Disney Star posted on porn app, OnlyFans, might have destroyed an industry. When former Disney Channel star, Bella Thorne, decided to break the Internet with a bold new experiment in which she would join the massively popular paid content service OnlyFans - largely used by online adult stars and sex workers - and then make a movie about it, what eventually was supposed to be her attempt at shedding light on the industry and de-stigmatizing it, actually led to a situation where she singlehandedly destabilized an entire industry with a single photo. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the day that Bella Thorne joined OnlyFans.

For years he's been profiting off of the trauma of a teenage boy's murder. In 2012, George Zimmerman saw 17-year-old Trayvon Martin walking through his semi-gated community and became suspicious. The teenager had decided to walk to a nearby convenience store for a snack, but Zimmerman felt like something was just not right. He pursued the boy, and eventually got into an altercation with him that ended with the death of Martin. A lengthy court case ensued, and Zimmerman was eventually acquitted on all murder charges. However, in the years since, Zimmerman has made a living profiting off of sick and twisted schemes meant to capitalize off of the death of Trayvon. On this decidedly more sober episode of Deep Cuts, we take a look at the horrifying legacy of George Zimmerman.

It was a financial and critical flop, but it secretly changed the way movies are made. In 2008, the Wachowskis released a weird, experimental live action adaptation of the 1960s anime classic, Speed Racer. The movie starred Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, John Goodman, and Susan Sarandon, and was not well-received by critics, audiences, and totally flopped at the box office. It has a small continent of fans (including us of course), but ultimately became a forgotten footnote - lost to time. However, a reassessment of the film reveals how it completely changed the way we tell cinematic stories now, and may have been the most influential film of the last 20 years. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the influential legacy of The Wachowski's Speed Racer.

Did Stan Lee & Steve Ditko create Spider-Man? Or was the idea stolen from a Halloween costume? In the Silver Age of comics in the 1960s and 70s, things were an existential mess from a creator perspective - especially at Marvel comics. There were no artist or writer unions, characters were often created in bull pen-type situations where authorship was given to the company at large instead of the actual people doing the creating. And, in a system where creator-ship was not properly recorded, and artists were unfairly disregarded, many of the people involved in the creation of the books all have their own versions of the story. One of the most notorious examples is Spider-Man. Stan Lee claims he created the iconic wall-crawler because he thought of the name and the superpower. Steve Ditko claims he's actually a co-creator because he designed the web-slinger, drew most of the original books, and basically wrote them as well. But what if Spider-Man existed BEFORE either men created him? What if the idea was stolen from a Halloween costumed created by a different legendary comic book artist a decade prior? On this episode of Deep Cuts we explore the story, the speculation, and the enigma behind the true creator of Spider-Man.

He made a 4 hour movie where he played over 100 characters by himself, but he ended up homeless. In 1994, Laz Rojas desperately wanted to break into the entertainment industry as an actor, writer, and director. He had written literally hundreds of scripts, but couldn't get anybody to pay attention to them. So he shot a 4 hour film that was a collection of random scenes from all of the various scripts he had written. The only thing is - he didn't have any friends or collaborators to make it with. So he played every single character - over 100 - in the film, sometimes playing up to 5 characters in a scene interacting with himself. His career never took off despite this Herculean effort, and years later he ended up homeless and destitute in the streets of LA. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the inspiring, exciting, and terribly sad life of Laz Rojas.

Two Scottish guys fooled the world into thinking they were American rappers for almost a decade. In the early 2000s, Billy Boyd and Gavin Bain were college students and best friends. They also loved hip hop and wanted to do something more with their lives than live a small-town Scottish existence. They formed a rap group and got good. However, after various auditions they quickly learned that, no matter how good they were, nobody would ever take two Scottish rappers seriously. So...they fabricated an entire elaborate fake backstory that they were Americans from California and...people believed them. And they also started giving them opportunities. So Billy and Gavin - or Silibil N Brains - moved to London and lived their lives as Americans for several years...and they almost became massive celebrities in the process. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the wild multi-year hoax of Silibil N Brains.

A cult started by a blind Japanese man went on to become a deadly terrorist organization. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Shoko Asahara was rising in the ranks as one of the most powerful cult leaders in history. He had over ten thousand followers, and slowly over the course of several years would launch several deadly terrorist attacks against the country of Japan - a few of which are the worst attack that Japan has ever experienced. They did all of this while producing anime recruitment videos animated by actual anime artists who had joined the cult. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the dark and dangerous world of Shoko Asahara and the Aum Shinrikyo cult.

12 years ago she lost control of her life. Is it for mental health reasons, or something far more evil? In 2008, after a very public mental health scare in which pop star Britney Spears shaved her head and had several violent outbursts, her father, Jamie Spears, was granted a permanent conservatorship over her. Conservatorships are usually reserved for the mentally unwell or handicapped, or the old and infirm, and make it so you are not legally allowed to make your own decisions, vote, drive a car, get married, or many other basic elements of human life. Now, a growing movement of concerned fans believe that she's being held against her will and is trying to cry for help through coded messages on her social media pages. Are they right? Is Britney being controlled by her father and a team exploiting her talents for money? Or is she suffering from private mental health issues and being placed under this legal psychiatric hold for her own good? On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore and attempt to make sense of #FreeBritney and the Britney Spears conservatorship.

They were three young girls held prisoner by their father and forced to become a rock band because of a prophecy. They ended up becoming a huge cult hit, beloved by many - including Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain who lists their album as his third favorite of all time - and one of the most influential indie bands of all time. They were musical geniuses in the category of "outsider music." They also hated playing music, never wanted to be a band, and were held prisoner as teenagers by their father for 11 years and forced to practice 8 hours a day, 7 days a week in pursuit of a prophecy he believed in that they would one day become the world's biggest music group. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore the strange, sad, and fascinating life of The Shaggs - the genius rock band who just wanted to be regular teenagers.

Actor Jared Leto has slowly been growing a cult-like following for the last several years. What's his endgame? You know him from his films throughout the 90s, 2000s, leading up to today, as well as from his band 30 Seconds to Mars. Did you also know that, for the last several years, he's invited thousands of people to a large gathering that happens on a remote Island in some exotic area of the world? They started out as basically music festivals, but slowly they have morphed into something different. Leto dresses in flowing white robes and speaks to crowds of thousands, preaching nebulous philosophies about life and the universe. They've become less and less about music and more like...a literal cult? On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore Jared Leto's Mars Island events and get to the bottom of whether or not he's trying to become a cult leader. 01000011 01101000 01100001 01110010 01101100 01100101 01110011 00100000 01010111 01100101 01111000 01101100 01100101 01110010 00100000 01010111 01100101 01101100 01101100 01100101 01110010 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01101111 01101110 01100101 00100000 01110111 01101000 01101111 00100000 01101000 01100101 00100000 01110011 01100101 01100101 01101011 01110011 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01100101 01110010 01100001 01110011 01100101 00100000 01100110 01110010 01101111 01101101 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01110100 01101001 01101101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100101 00101110  Learn more about your ad choices.

He's the brother that director Christopher Nolan doesn't want to talk about. Because he's a murderer. You are familiar with the massively successful British filmmaker, Christopher Nolan, who has directed films like the Dark Knight, Inception, the Prestige, and the Tenet. You might also be familiar with his brother, Jonah Nolan, who co-created HBO's Westworld. But did you know that there's a third Nolan brother? Why have you never heard of him? Well, likely somebody paid a lot of money to make sure you didn't. In 2009, Matthew Nolan, the eldest Nolan brother, was hired by a wealthy businessman to get some missing money back from one of his ex-partners. Nolan, along with an accomplice, kidnapped, tortured, and murdered the man, but he's never faced trial or gone to prison for it because of the bureaucratic nightmare of extradition laws. On this episode of Deep Cuts, we talk about Matthew Nolan, the third Nolan brother with a dark past. 01000100 01101001 01100100 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01101100 01101001 01110011 01110100 01100101 01101110 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01000101 01001110 01010100 01001001 01010010 01000101 00100000 01000001 01101110 01100100 01110010 01100101 01110111 00100000 01010111 00101110 01001011 00101110 00100000 01100101 01110000 01101001 01110011 01101111 01100100 01100101 00100000 01100110 01110010 01101111 01101101 00100000 01110011 01110100 01100001 01110010 01110100 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01100110 01101001 01101110 01101001 01110011 01101000 00111111  Learn more about your ad choices.

I kinda believe it was George who was yelling for help in the phone call. not because I think he was right or was practicing self defense. I believe he was yelling for help so he could look like the hero. just in case anyone was looking out the window or just in case anyone else was around, he could look like he was protecting himself and the area. fuck him.

Fantasric show. For new listeners I recommend the Andrew WK episode as it helps with the other celebrity/artist based episodes. it's a sort of landmark episode with how often they refer to it in the other episodes
