Lindy Chamberlain

“A DINGO’S GOT MY BABY.” That now infamous line is what most people blurt out when asked about Lindy Chamberlain, but there is so, so much more to the story.  At just 9 weeks old, Azaria Chamberlain was snatched and killed by a dingo while the Chamberlain family were camping at Uluru. Despite a desperate search, her body was never found - and that’s when the accusations started. Had Lindy or her husband Michael killed their baby? Why doesn’t Lindy seem emotional enough? How DARE she be attractive? Does Azaria actually mean ‘sacrifice in the wilderness’?  Despite very clear evidence that it had in fact been an awful dingo attack, Lindy Chamberlain became the victim of a nationwide witch-hunt, which would see her end up in prison. It was only years later that the truth came out - some very powerful people had set Lindy up to be found guilty. She never stood a chance.  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: Listen to the brilliant podcast series A Perfect Storm, especially if you want to hear the candid recordings of the detectives involved in the case https://open.spotify.com/show/4sADNVGYAf0VnP6TqaBW3i  Watch a fantastic 2020 documentary that unpacks the entire saga.

Shirley Temple

Arguably the most famous child star the world has ever known, Shirley Temple was so talented that the Vatican sent a priest to confirm the 5-year-old girl wasn't actually a middle-aged woman with dwarfism. The top earning actress and box office earner in the US, Temple was easily the most famous person in the world for most of the 1930s... until she had the AUDACITY to grow a little older (as in, she hit double-digits). So how does someone go from being the youngest person ever to win an Oscar, to struggling to get cast in a movie within just a few years? Whatever happened to Shirley Temple?  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Shirley Temple Black's autobiography, 'Child Star': https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/782944.Child_Star edwards/ebook/9781493026920.html Shirley Temple: The Little Girl Who Fought The Great Depression: https://www.booktopia.com.au/the-little-girl-who-fought-the-great-depression-john-f-kasson/book/9780393350616.html 'Shirley Temple: America's Little Darling' doco:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pcUEmnGX2g 'The Dark Side Of' podcast episode about Shirley Temple: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/hollywood-shirley-temple-child-star/id1461918400?i=1000444480614 One of the (very creepy) 'Baby Burlesks': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsCQ0t-3t1I Shirley Temple dancing with Bill Robinson:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X4A9mI5bxw Shirley Temple Black interviewed by Larry King in 1988:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_KacEMBJg0 Brisbane and Perth - get tickets to Rosie's show Kid Chameleon! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Email us your [email protected]

The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Nine Russian hikers go missing in the mountains in 1959. They are found dead soon after, with shocking and unexplained injuries to their bodies (we're talking 'missing eyeballs and exploded hearts' kind of shocking). Authorities find their tent has been cut open from the inside, as if they were trying to escape in an absolute panic. But what were the hikers running from? And what could've killed them in a way that looked like it came straight out of a horror movie? There are theories from aliens to an axe murderer to the Russian government testing secret weapons. But one thing we do know -  whatever happened during the Dyatlov Pass hiking trip, it was truly horrifying. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Rummage through all the details and files available on  https://dyatlovpass.com/  Read Donnie Eichar’s 2014 book, Dead Mountain  https://www.booktopia.com.au/dead-mountain-donnie-eichar/book/9781452140032.html  Check out the recent New Yorker article that bumped this story to the top of the Gist List:  https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2021/05/17/has-an-old-soviet-mystery-at-last-been-solved  Was it an avalanche all along?

DB Cooper

A man gets on a plane, says he has a bomb, demands $200,000 and a parachute. He gets what he asks for, jumps, AND THEY NEVER FIND HIM. DB Cooper pulled off the only successful plane hijacking in US history, in a case that baffles the FBI to this day. There are many, many theories as to who DB Cooper really was (from it actually being a woman, to a nutso connection to the show 'Mad Men'), but nobody has ever been able to confirm who the person in the famous criminal sketch is for sure, or what happened to him.  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: The Mystery of DB Cooper (I kept calling it the 'Disappearance' of DB Cooper but it's actually the 'mystery' MY BAD!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diuo8_VfpRw Stuff You Should Know podcast ep: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-stuff-you-should-know-26940277/episode/sysk-live-the-db-cooper-heist-29467756/ FBI casefile: https://www.fbi.gov/history/famous-cases/db-cooper-hijacking Buzzfeed Unsolved ep: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHSehKtDyoI Interview with Flight Attendant Tina: https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/db-cooper-tina-mucklow-untold-story-1111944/ Prancer the Chihuahua Insta: https://www.instagram.com/prancerthechihuahua/ Get tickets to Rosie's show Kid Chameleon: https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Send us your suGISTtions! [email protected]

The Headache Tablet Murders

A bunch of people suddenly drop dead for no reason - the only thing they have in common? They had all just taken tablets for a headache. It doesn't take long for doctors and police to figure out that the painkillers they had taken were laced with cyanide - and the whole world went into a TOTAL PANIC. How did a deadly poison get into tablets that pretty much everyone has in their home? Who put the cyanide in there? And why? The Chicago Tylenol murders and the Excedrin murders of the 1980s are the reason we now sell all medications in tamper-proof packaging, because back then, anyone could open a bottle of headache tablets up, put poison in the capsules, then put it back on the shelf in the pharmacy without anybody noticing. You just had to hope you weren't the one who picked up the headache tablets that could kill you...

The Bone Wars

Otherwise known as the biggest dick measuring contest of all time (according to Rosie), this is Just The Gist of two of the first men to discover dinosaur bones back in the 1800s. So many fossils and dinosaurs were being discovered at the time that they called it 'The Great Dinosaur Rush', because every time you discovered a new dinosaur, you got to name it and go down in the history books as the OFFICIAL CLEVER MAN WHO FOUND THIS DINOSAUR. But did Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh play fair in this rush to discover new dinosaurs? Of course they didn't! They let their egos get in the way, and in the race to be the bestest, most importantist dino digger, they actually started DESTROYING fossils just so the other guy couldn't find them. That's right - there could be hundreds of dinosaurs that we'll never know about because these two guys smashed them up like babies. So who won The Bone Wars in the end?

Charles Manson

Remembered for being possibly the most infamous and feared killer of recent times, there's not many people who don't know about Charles Manson and the Tate/LaBianca murders. But, it tends to be one of those topics everybody assumes they know everything about, until they hear the bizarre details. Like, did you know that Manson didn't actually kill movie star Sharon Tate himself, or any of the victims that 'The Manson Family' are most known for slaughtering? Or that Charles Manson was good friends with The Beach Boys, to the point where one of his songs even ended up on one of their albums? Or that during his trial, people actually admired him so much that he was put on the cover of Rolling Stone? It's a famous story that's been told a gazillion times, but there's way more crazy 'shock your friends at a dinner party' details in this one than you think.

Melbourne Live Show!

We took our nonsense to Melbourne and had an EXCELLENT time - Bird in Hand in hand obvi. We’ve got some Breakin’ Nooz for ya, plus TWO stories! Jacob gives Just The Gist on Lawrence Joseph Bader, otherwise known as John Fritz Johnson - a guy who faked his own death to escape his boring life OR got total amnesia one day, disappeared and became a local TV star in a different town.

Forrest Fenn’s deadly treasure hunt

If a wealthy old billionaire with a cartoonish name told you he’d hidden $2 million worth of treasure somewhere in a national park, would you actually believe him? More importantly, would you have a crack at trying to find that treasure for yourself? When Forrest Fenn announced in 2010 that he’d hidden a bronze chest filled with jewels and gold in the Rocky Mountains, a lot of people did choose to believe, and they sure did have a crack at finding that treasure. Over the course of a decade, more than 350 000 people fulfilled their childhood fantasies of going on a real-life treasure, hoping to become instant millionaires.  The only clues to the chest’s location were laid out in a (terrible) poem Forrest had included in his memoir. Sounds like a recipe for a whimsical, joyful adventure, right? Well… the hunt turned out to be quite a destructive force to not only the environment, but to the treasure hunters themselves. People were very seriously injured, and several of them even lost their lives. Plus the legal system quickly became clogged with lawsuits (because: America), and the constant suing really sucked a lot of the fun out of the whole thing. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Have a read of this 1986 People Magazine article about Forrest Fenn’s gallery and lifestyle https://people.com/archive/rivals-scorn-his-santa-fe-gallery-but-forrest-fenn-baskets-the-cash-vol-25-no-23/ Visit Fenn’s Clues - a website dedicated to deciphering the poem and locating the treasure  http://fennclues.com/the-poem.html Check out this article about the hunt, published in 2012 when it started to go mainstream https://www.newsweek.com/forrest-fenn-wants-you-find-his-treasure-and-his-bones-64427 Here's a great article about Fenn’s life and the treasure hunt, written shortly after his death https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/16/buried-treasure-forrest-fenn-rockies Get to know more about Jack, the man who found the treasure https://www.outsideonline.com/2419429/forrest-fenn-treasure-jack-stuef This book is going to be worth the read when it’s released in May 2021 https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/604063/chasing-the-thrill-by-daniel-barbarisi/ And watch some examples of Fennhead YouTube channels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFIZQP4XfmA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqgLMclzLWs Get tickets to a Just The Gist LIVE show! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/just-the-gist/ Get tickets to Rosie's solo show Kid Chameleon! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Follow us on Insta! @justthegistpodcast Email us your suGISTions!

Adelaide Live Show!

We recorded our very first LIVE SHOW at the Adelaide Fringe Festival last week! And it was loose and ridiculous and fun and involved lots of Bird In Hand (obviously). Including Breakin' Nooz, plus TWO whole stories! Jacob gives Rosie just the gist on Tik Tok scammer Paul Zimmer (or is it Troy Becker?), who tricked a bunch of kids into sending him money. And Rosie gives Jacob just the gist on the story that inspired the movie Changeling -  Bobby Dunbar, the 4-year-old boy who disappeared and came back 8 months later... but nobody could ever be sure if it was really him.

The Woman Whose Entire Face Was Ripped Off By A Chimp

Yeah... not much else we can title this one, really. Travis the Chimp was treated like a son by his owners Sandy and Jerry. They bought him as a pet when he was just three days old, and raised him like a human. Seriously - by the time he was ten, he had favourite TV shows, helped mow the lawn, loved drinking wine, and could even drive a car. But no matter how domesticated he became, Travis was still, at the end of the day, a wild animal. And that became all too clear the day a call came through to the Connecticut 911: “HELP PLEASE! HE... HE RIPPED HER FACE OFF!” Probably even more shocking is that the woman Travis attacked SURVIVED. (And obviously went on Oprah, in what is now remembered as one of her most harrowing, famous interviews: with a woman forced to wear a veil because she no longer had a face.) We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: Read an in-depth article from New York magazine about Travis's life: https://nymag.com/news/features/70830/  Watch the video of Oprah’s interview with Charla in Oct 2009: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj2fSt1OPJU  See how much Charla’s condition had improved by 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6JhIldn2FQ  And see Charla’s progress as of 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6inhUFpQnOo  Get tickets to Rosie’s comedy show Kid Chameleon: https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Get tickets to the Just The Gist LIVE shows:https://moretalent.com.au/tours/just-the-gist/ Follow us on Insta! @justthegistpodcast Email us your suGISTions!

The Marvel movie that was too embarrassing to release

Marvel movies may be the biggest money-making blockbusters in the world today, but back in 1994, they made one that was SO bad, when studio bosses saw the final cut, they decided they would never, ever release it to the public. It was just that... embarrassing. It was an attempt at a Fantastic Four movie, and after how disastrously it went, Marvel bosses desperately tried to keep it a secret, even banning current Marvel stars from ever talking about it. So how exactly does that happen? How does an entire superhero movie filmed in Hollywood end up so bad it can't even be released?  And can you watch it today? (Yes. Yes you can.) We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Watch the full-length, unreleased 1994 film here:  https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x19pvwt  The trailer Rosie watched: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgeFPKECZKE Watch the 2016 documentary “Doomed” on Amazon Prime:  https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0IIEUXLMWWO1CPPNCM0BPQEIO8/ref=atv_sr_def_c_unkc__1_1_1?sr=1-1&pageTypeIdSource=ASIN&pageTypeId=B072N1JF6T&qid=1615461973  Read this 2005 article from Los Angeles Magazine - “Fantastic Faux”:  https://books.google.com.au/books?id=SF8EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA109&dq=%22selling+the+character%27s+option+to+Universal%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=FJbjUPe3KMy70AHlwoDAAw&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=%22selling%20the%20character's%20option%20to%20Universal%22&f=false  And this loving tribute from Den of Geek:  https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/the-roger-corman-fantastic-four-movie-the-most-faithful-ff-ever/  Get tickets to a Just The Gist LIVE show! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/just-the-gist/ Get tickets to Rosie's solo show Kid Chameleon! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Email us your suGISTions!

Wallis Simpson and the Royal Abdication

Before Prince Harry decided to jump ship with Meghan Markle, there was one other guy who decided to quit the Royal family. King Edward VIII fell in love with a divorced American woman back in 1936, and when the Royal family treated her like crap, he quit ‘The Firm’ and left the country with her for good. SOUND FAMILIAR? With Harry and Meghan spilling all the tea in their Oprah interview this week, we thought this was the perfect time to get just the gist on the other Royal couple everyone keeps comparing them to: Wallis and Edward.

Agafia Lykova - the woman who's lived alone in the wilderness for 70 years

When she was born, Agafia's father had become convinced that their family was being hunted by the Russian government, so he had packed up the whole family and escaped into the Siberian wilderness - hundreds of kilometres from any other humans. Agafia is now 76, the rest of her family has died, and she is still living - alone - in the tiny hut her father built back in the 1940s. She has only left her home a total of six times in her entire life, and if not for being discovered by chance in the 80s, nobody would ever even have known she was there.  If you want to see Agafia performing for the camera, start by watching these 2 videos:  VICE documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt2AYafET68 RUSSIA TV documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFK3DJ7Kn6s&pbjreload=101 Read this stuff: Read this excellent article from Smithsonian magazine: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/for-40-years-this-russian-family-was-cut-off-from-all-human-contact-unaware-of-world-war-ii-7354256/ If you can track down a copy of Vasily Peskov’s book about the Lykov family, apparently it’s excellent: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1166194.Lost_in_the_Taiga Read about the influencer who put Agafia’s life at risk by flouting social distancing rules during the pandemic… https://igvofficial.com/updateworlds-loneliest-hermit-has-been-put-at-risk-of-covid-19-after-influencer-takes-a-trip-to-see-her/ And you can go to Google Maps and see exactly where she lives: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lykov+family+settlement/@51.4608556,88.4183531,15z/data=!3m1!4b1 RECCOS: Watch 'I Care A Lot' on Amazon Prime: https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0TIXYYBH7U617YC52G595LGU44/ref=atv_hm_hom_c_8pZiqd_2_2 Read the Forbes article about Britney's (lack of) wealth: https://www.forbes.com/sites/maddieberg/2021/02/17/britney-spears-net-worth-revealed--and-its-shockingly-low-compared-to-her-pop-peers/?sh=50a826f718ac

Agafia is now 76, the rest of her family has died, and she is still living - alone - in the tiny hut her father built back in the 1940s. She has only left her home a total of six times in her entire life, and if not for being discovered by chance in the 80s, nobody would ever even have known she was there.  If you want to see Agafia performing for the camera, start by watching these 2 videos:  VICE documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt2AYafET68 RUSSIA TV documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFK3DJ7Kn6s&pbjreload=101 Read this stuff: Read this excellent article from Smithsonian magazine: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/for-40-years-this-russian-family-was-cut-off-from-all-human-contact-unaware-of-world-war-ii-7354256/ If you can track down a copy of Vasily Peskov’s book about the Lykov family, apparently it’s excellent: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1166194.Lost_in_the_Taiga Read about the influencer who put Agafia’s life at risk by flouting social distancing rules during the pandemic… https://igvofficial.com/updateworlds-loneliest-hermit-has-been-put-at-risk-of-covid-19-after-influencer-takes-a-trip-to-see-her/ And you can go to Google Maps and see exactly where she lives: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lykov+family+settlement/@51.4608556,88.4183531,15z/data=!3m1!4b1 RECCOS: Watch 'I Care A Lot' on Amazon Prime: https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0TIXYYBH7U617YC52G595LGU44/ref=atv_hm_hom_c_8pZiqd_2_2 Read the Forbes article about Britney's (lack of) wealth: https://www.forbes.com/sites/maddieberg/2021/02/17/britney-spears-net-worth-revealed--and-its-shockingly-low-compared-to-her-pop-peers/?sh=50a826f718ac

The tech billionaire who got away with murder

ALLEGEDLY! Imagine if Mark Zuckerberg went nutso, started walking around shirtless with a gun trying to take over another country? That's pretty much John McAfee. Most people know his name because he's the guy who invented the antiviral computer software that almost everyone has used at one point or another. Just another nerdy tech dude with lots of money, right? Lol no. John McAfee took off to the jungle in Belize, pretty much tried to take over the country with his own army, insisted he was creating magical new medicines out of rare jungle plants, and left a suspicious trail of abused and/or dead people in his wake. Oh, and he didn't get in trouble for any of it. FREAKING RICH WHITE DUDES.

The horrifying story of the 1981 Trashman yacht sinking

This has been called one the worst shark attack stories of all time. After their yacht, ‘The Trashman’, sank in a major storm, five crew members were stranded in the middle of the ocean in a tiny inflatable dinghy. That number soon turned to four. Then three. Then two. Then... yeah - sharks were circling them, taking the crew one by one.  But not before starvation and thirst caused them to mentally unravel and turn on each other (seriously - one crew member got so delirious they started acting like a possessed zombie). This one is a WILD fkn ride.  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more there’s this: ‘I Shouldn’t Be Alive’ (Season 1, Episode 1) - available on Amazon Prime: News article about the sinking: www.newsweek.com/woman-fiends-eaten-sharks-capsized-atlantic-1453952%3famp=1 Info on survivor Deborah Scaling Kiley: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deborah_Scaling_Kiley Deborah’s book ‘Albatross: The True Story Of A Woman’s Survival At Sea: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/273844.Albatross Transcript of Deborah’s interview with Larry King: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/27/lkl.01.html Email us your suGISTtions!

QAnon

So it's just a bunch of crazy conspiracies from right-wing pro-Trump people, right? Saying mean things about Hillary? Something about a Pizza Restaurant...? Well yeah, QAnon is all that, but it's also SO MUCH CRAZIER THAN YOU THINK. QAnon is a weird fantasy in which Donald Trump is a superhero/Jesus, and the 'Lightworkers' say he is the only one who can save imprisoned children from being tortured at the hands of an underground group of celebrities and politicians who want to eat babies and destroy the earth. LOL WHAT? Yeah... when those 'Q' people stormed the capitol, it wasn't just because they were cranky Trump lost and Biden won, it was because they thought the very fabric of human existence was at stake, and NOTHING could convince them otherwise.  So how did a bunch of boomers and once regular, smart people (one of them Jacob's friend) end up sucked into the bizarre conspiracy world of QAnon? How did it start, and do people still believe it now that Trump has slunk away to play golf rather than be their Jesus and save the world?

The Block Scandal! Hilaria Baldwin! Sydney's own lady Bernie Madoff! A penis cartoon! And so much more! All in one month! 2021 sure has hit the ground running.

Pepe The Frog

How did a cute, unassuming cartoon frog end up a symbol of racism and favourite mascot of the alt-right? Pepe started off as a funny little meme, created by an artist who just wanted to spread joy and laughter in the world. NEXT MINUTE - his creation was popping up on banners at Trump rallies and being used by white supremacists to spread the worst kinds of bigotry and racism. So why did the racist and sexist trolls on awful websites like 4chan pick Pepe? And what's to stop them making any other much-loved character a symbol of hate? Is Sesame Street safe? The Wiggles?

The Sydney Luna Park Ghost Train Fire

In 1979, a fire broke out on the ghost train at Sydney’s Luna Park, killing 7 people - 6 of them children. Despite being over 40 years since the tragedy occurred, it’s still considered one of Sydney’s greatest unsolved mysteries, as authorities never figured out how or why it happened. But, there are main two theories that refuse to go away - that an infamous Sydney criminal caused the fire in an attempt to take over the park, or... that a devil-horned man named Moloch started the fire as part of a child sacrifice. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: Daily Telegraph article with interviews: https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/luna-park-tragedy-36th-anniversary-of-the-fire-that-killed-seven-riders-on-the-ghost-train-in-1979/news-story/6e70f4ea61959d1d393ce597da253c78 Mosman Collective article with good collection of pics: https://www.mosmancollective.com/latest/2020/6/11/local-history-the-un-solved-mystery-behind-the-deadly-ghost-train-inferno-at-luna-park-still-haunts-sydney-more-than-40-years-later Some podcast eps:  Fairground F*uck-Ups:  https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-ghost-train-luna-park-pt-1/id1536362713?i=1000500701793 True Crime Island: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/episode-25-the-luna-park-ghost-train-fire/id1184429621?i=1000392932858 Investigates: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/investigates/id1344649849?i=1000469479078 Email us with your suGISTions!  [email protected]

The Bling Ring

In 2009, six celebrity-obsessed teenagers decided that the best way to live like their idols was to, well, steal their stuff. These kids used Google, TMZ, Facebook and good ol' Hollywood Star Maps to figure out where celebs lived and when exactly when they weren't at home.

The Bling Ring

In 2009, six celebrity-obsessed teenagers decided that the best way to live like their idols was to, well, steal their stuff. These kids used Google, TMZ, Facebook and good ol' Hollywood Star Maps to figure out where celebs lived and when exactly when they weren't at home. Then they'd break into their (usually unlocked) mansions and steal piles of their stuff. They ransacked the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom and more. By the time they were caught, they had $3million worth of stuff, and the crazy thing? Most of the celebrities hadn't even noticed anything was missing.

The Jenny Jones talk show shooting

In 1995, daytime talk shows like Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones were at the height of their popularity thanks to using a tactic called ‘ambush television’ - getting guests on stage and shocking or embarrassing them for entertainment. There were episodes like ‘Mom, I’ve been sleeping with your boyfriend’ or ‘Remember our one night stand? WELL THIS IS YOUR BABY!’  One episode of Jenny Jones at the time was called ‘Guess your secret crush!’ and in it, a man called Scott Amedure admitted to his friend Jonathan Schmitz that he had a crush on him. Three days later, Scott was dead. Jonathan had murdered him, and he blamed The Jenny Jones Show.

The 1904 Olympic Games - aka the one that was so bad they almost cancelled the Olympics forever

Imagine if Donald Trump and the dude who created Fyre Fest were allowed to run an Olympics - that’s the level of disaster that was going on at the 1904 St Louis Olympic Games. Nothing was organised, competitors almost died, and the US kept giving citizenship to foreign athletes who won so they could have the highest medal tally.

The Messed Up History of the Ice Pick Lobotomy

In the 1940s and 1950s, Dr Walter Freeman performed his 'pioneering' procedure on thousands of people, and trained other doctors to perform it on thousands more. The media was calling it a 'miracle cure' for any and all mental illness. You could get it done at your local doctor's office in five minutes for the bargain price of 25 bucks. The only problem? The 'procedure' involved taking an ice pick, sticking it through the eye socket up into the brain, and swishing it around at random. People would go in suffering mild depression, and come out with the mental capacity of a toddler. But that didn't stop Dr Freeman, with hundreds of thousands of people getting the 'miracle' Ice Pick Lobotomy before he was finally stopped.

Rudy Kurniawan - the guy who tricked rich idiots into buying homemade wine

There are people in this world who spend literally hundreds of thousands of dollars on wine - sometimes on a single bottle. These wine 'experts' say they can taste the difference between a fancy bottle and a sack of goon, but... Rudy definitely proved they can't. He made a bunch of wine in his kitchen, slapped some snobby labels on the bottles and SOLD THEM TO RICH IDIOTS FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. And not only did they buy the wine, they INSISTED they loved it, and that it was the 'best wine' they'd ever tasted. Gotta love rich idiots!

Tania Esteve Head - the fake 9/11 survivor

Her story was one of triumph over trauma. When planes flew into the World Trade Centre twin towers on September 11, Tania Head was on the floor where the plane hit. She somehow made it out, only to still be at ground zero when the tower collapsed. Waking up in hospital with horrific injuries, she is told that her fiancé who was in the other tower, has died. She goes on to become president of the World Trade Centre Survivor’s Network, and is the public face of those who made it out.  One little problem - she had never even been to the World Trade Centre. She wasn’t even in the country on 9/11. IT WAS ALL A LIE.  So how does a woman who made up her entire story of survival end up president of the damn Survivor’s Network? And what happened when they found out she’d been faking it all along - that she was the woman who wasn’t there?

The Blair Witch Project (AKA... The Greatest Movie Marketing Campaign of ALL TIME)

In October of 1994, three student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkettsville, Maryland while shooting a documentary... A year later their footage was found. AND EVERYBODY LOST THEIR DAMN MINDS. The Blair Witch Project was a horror film that gripped the world because everybody (Rosie included) was convinced it was a real 'documentary'. It was a mania that could only have happened at that one point in time - the internet was new, 'found footage' horror movies weren't around yet, and we were all JUST SO NAIVE. But how did the creators actually do it? How did they make millions of people believe they were watching actual footage of missing students being murdered? Rosie gives Jacob Just The Gist on exactly how The Blair Witch Project was pulled off - from auditioning the actors to (whose parents got condolence cards from friends who thought they had died) to faking entire newspaper articles to pull people in.

The Chowchilla School Bus Kidnapping

In 1976 in the tiny town of Chowchilla, three men kidnapped 26 kids (aged 5-14) and their busdriver. They piled them into blacked-out vans, drove for 12 hours to the middle of nowhere, then forced them to climb down a ladder into a hole in the ground before locking them inside. As the older kids tried to comfort the younger ones, they suddenly heard the unmistakable sound of dirt being poured on top of them. They were being buried alive. BUT!

Ron and Joy Holiday and the Killer Cat Dancers

Before Tiger King, before Carole Baskin, before even Siegfried and Roy, there was husband and wife Ron and Joy - two gloriously tacky (but crazy talented) dancers, who decided to spice up their show by bringing in the ultimate back-up performers: tigers. And leopards. Oh, and the occasional jaguar. Add to the mix their shared boy toy Chuck Lizza, throw in some sequins and buckle down for a crazy story... that obviously ends in more than one person getting eaten.

The Execution of the Romanov Family

One day they were the most powerful and wealthy royal family in the world, their ancestors having been in charge of Russia for more than 300 years. NEK MINIT... Tsar Nicholas Romanov, his wife Alexandra and their five children (including the legendary Anastasia) are taken down to a basement in the middle of the night and killed, in a VERY botched and violent execution. For years, Russia refused to acknowledge what really happened that night, which led to much speculation about their fate. Did all of them die that night? Or did 16-year-old Anastasia Romanov escape and move to Florida, eventually retire and become one of the Golden Girls?  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Watch docudrama 'The Last Czars': https://www.netflix.com/title/80211648 Watch BBC doco 'Russia's Lost Princesses': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHQWpcpJVM0 HIstory article about the remains of the Romanov family: https://www.history.com/news/romanov-family-bodies-discovery-coverup Last Podcast On The Left 'Rasputin' series: https://www.lastpodcastontheleft.com/episodes/2018/4/7/episode-310-rasputin-part-i-greg-drunk Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/justthegistpodcast/ Email us!

The Severed Foot Found in a Storage Locker (and the two guys fighting over it)

Shannon Whisnant bought an abandoned storage locker, and found a human foot inside. John Wood came forward and was like, "Um, hey, that's my foot, can I have it back please?" But Shannon liked the foot, and didn't want to give it back. He bought it fair and square, damn it! That's how the most bizarro (and hilarious) legal battle began - two men fighting over a LITERAL MUMMIFIED FOOT. Who is the rightful owner in the end?

The killer bog terrorising a small town

Imagine you’re peacefully sitting by the lake after a lovely swim, you look up, and there is a floating island of mud and gunk the size of 60 tennis courts coming right at you. A poo tsunami. A POONAMI. You can’t run, you can’t hide. And there’s no way of knowing where the killer bog is going to go next. That’s what happened to this US lakeside town in 2017. A massive killer bog was on the loose and destroying everything in its path... until the locals decided to fight back. (Yes, this is completely true.

The Murder of Selena Quintanilla

The ‘Queen of Tehano music’, people often said it wasn’t that she was ‘the Latin Madonna’ but that Madonna was ‘the English Selena’. She sung her Spanish-language music to stadiums of thousands, was one of the wealthiest Latin-music stars in America and was about to become a mainstream superstar by releasing her first album in English.

The Dancing Plague

Sir Alfred Nasseri

You think being stuck at home for a few weeks is bad? This guy got stuck living in an airport for 18 YEARS.

We Fact Up

We Fact Up

Ever wondered how much you'd know without the help of the internet? How would you answer questions like 'who invented the high five' or 'what does OK stand for' without Googling? What if you had to work it out yourself? That's the game that We Fact Up plays - each episode we get asked questions by our listeners and attempt to work out the answers using only the power of conversation. The one rule - NO GOOGLING until the end. And have fun (ok that’s two rules, but you get what we’re saying). Hosted by Dave Zwolenski, Redd Peterson and James 'Martine' Blake it's the comedy/fact podcast everyone can play.
