ancient Israel was said to use the Urim and the Thummim (meaning uncertain, possibly "Lights and Perfections") which was a breastplate worn by the High Priest along with an ephod
famously, this was one of several methods Joseph Smith used to translate the gold plates into the Book of Mormon, right?
according to Joseph Smith and the LDS church, the angel Moroni took back these artifacts, and most Mormons think that's the end of the story. and it is, in a way. but there's more, too.

the second episode for today is about WWII, and I introduce Alfried Krupp
Hjalmar Schacht, using financial trickery to keep rearmament off the books
Krupp and the other industrialists were not paid for their weapons in reichsmarks, but in “mefo bills”, which were IOUs from the Metallurgische Forschungsgesellschaft, hence the “mefo”

it's time for a thread

so check this out. I've got about 7,000 followers on Twitter. I'm very happy about that, right?

I take pride in my posting, I certainly do less of it now that I've got a podcast, but whatever
and then I've got 346 patrons - way more than I ever thought I'd have. I put a lot of work into my show and I really enjoy creating, so I'm happy people respond to it

gonna attempt an open-source type of investigation here today. I've been talking with some people about the likelihood of gore videos/sites and their fans being cultivated and groomed by certain groups for certain purposes.

to that end, we found a few examples
probably the most obvious one being Luka Magnotta, who was an enthusiast of deranged videos; he later went on to murder and cannibalize Jun Lin in Montreal (which, Montreal)
"After a video allegedly depicting the murder was posted online, Magnotta fled the country"

"He was previously sought by animal rights groups for allegedly uploading videos of himself killing kittens."

so, I've got JD Salinger content in the pipeline, but this was given to me by a listener who's also an Antiques Roadshow superfan - a letter between JD Salinger and a woman he met on a cruise to Cuba in 1948
here's the bit: it's from Salinger pretending to be his dog writing to her dog, you know, to flirt
as the story goes, this was 1948, so Salinger was on the rebound, and I guess this was 1940s culture or something

today's all about Wayne Williams, and the rabbit hole goes very deep

for my money, this and last week's Atlanta episode might be the best stuff I've ever made on my own
a fair amount of this comes from Chet Dettlinger's the List and Programmed to Kill, but many other sources too
the Williams family came from Columbia, GA, near Phenix City, the "sin city of the south"

alright, I'm particularly proud of this one - the story is batshit insane.

these episodes mostly stand on their own, so going in order, while recommended, isn't necessary.
Friedrich Alfred Krupp, Alfred's son
I think this one particularly captures his character

I think this and next week's premium are my best work yet, though it was hard to write and listen to, as a heads up
Dr. Donald Lunde
Dr. Lunde was at Atascadero when Kemper was there, before his killing spree, yet nobody ever mentions it?

on the premium side, I talk about Roberto Bolaño and discuss the existence of magick
specifically, I talk about By Night in Chile as a great introduction to Bolaño if someone's never read him
