Episode 24 – Prison Breaks

 

Prison Breaks are very popular in the movies and TV but they are just as insetting when it comes to real life.  This episode we are covering a bunch of cases of what we think are compelling prison breaks.  This episode we collaborate with a friend of the show beer podcast What The Hops from Buffalo New York.

Episode 20 – Kidnappings

 

On this episode we hit the topic Kidnappings.  We cover three stories and also do a quick review of The Girls Are Gone a novel.

The Not so Magic School Bus

This may seem like a horrible story about the largest kidnapping in US history but stick with me. It’s really about being a hero no matter what your age.
