The Murder of Dorothy Stratten

When Dorothy Stratten arrived in Hollywood as a shy, naive 18-year-old, she had never even been on a plane before. By 19, she had been named Playboy Magazine's 1980 Playmate of the Year, and started booking acting jobs in film and TV, with many believing she would be the first Playmate to achieve 'mainstream' success. But by 20, less than two years after she arrived in LA, Dorothy Stratten was dead.  (Content Warning - this episode features talk about domestic violence. Some support resources are listed below.)

The Knoedler Gallery Scandal (or - rich idiots think fake art is real art)

We love us some rich idiots! And lady scammers!  It was considered one of the most exclusive, snooty art galleries in the world. If you were a gazillionaire, and you wanted to buy a Picasso or a Pollock for a ridiculous amount of money, you went to the Knoedler Gallery and spoke to Ann Freedman. But everything fell apart when someone had their artwork valued at by an expert, and was informed they had spent $17 million on a FAKE. And they weren’t the only one - turns out Ann Freedman had been selling fake paintings to everyone in town for years. So where did the paintings come from? How did she have so many? And why did it take so long for anyone to notice, even when there were obvious mistakes like the artists’ signatures spelled wrong on all the ‘exclusive’ pieces?  Skip straight to the story: approx 16:29 We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: The 2017 doco "Blurred Lines" that explores how & why the art market became so bonkers: https://tv.apple.com/au/movie/blurred-lines-inside-the-art-world/umc.cmc.4zajoochjr131ibtlaqcs0lzi?action=play  The 2019 doco "Driven to Abstraction" which focuses a lot on the court case against Ann Freedman & Michael Hammer: https://projectr.tv/films/driven-to-abstraction/604514c3907e500001bc07f4 The 2020 doco "Made You Look: a True Story About Fake Art" which features LOTS of interviews with Ann Freedman: https://www.netflix.com/watch/81406333?trackId=13752289&tctx=0%2C0%2Cb19b1114ce76a7005cfc1e579c63b3bfe52f64e4%3A898b90812c8f5361b5d9e43631e111c33ee14146%2Cb19b1114ce76a7005cfc1e579c63b3bfe52f64e4%3A898b90812c8f5361b5d9e43631e111c33ee14146%2Cunknown%2C%2C Maria Konnikova's book "The Confidence Game": https://www.booktopia.com.au/the-confidence-game-maria-konnikova/book/9780143109877.html This 2012 Vanity Fair article: https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2012/05/knoedler-gallery-forgery-scandal-investigation  The Just The Gist LIVE Australian tour is now on sale!

The Gucci Family

Currently depicted in the new film 'House of Gucci', the story of the Gucci family is almost too outrageous to be real.

The Disappearance of Harold Holt

In 1967, Australia’s Prime Minister went for a swim at the beach and just… never came back. Despite massive widespread searches, no sign of Harold Holt was ever found - no body, no clues, nothing. He was just gone. And of course, because he was our country’s leader, the conspiracy theories about what ‘really’ happened to him started forming straight away. Did he fake his own death to start a new life? Did the CIA have him killed? Or the Vietnamese army? Was he a spy for the Chinese government who needed to escape by swimming down to a submarine that took him back to China? Or did he just, you know, overestimate his swimming ability, swim out too far at a very rough beach with no lifeguards and get stuck in a rip and drown? (No! That’s far too boring a story according to people who DEFINITELY know.)

The Twins Accidentally Switched at Birth And Sent Home With The Wrong Parents

FKN WOOPS. Two mothers give birth to twins on the same night at the same hospital. They take those twins home, and each raise what they assume are their non-identical twin boys. But 25 years later, through total chance, the young men discover there is someone who looks exactly like each of them living in the same city. Yep - two sets of twins had been mixed up at the hospital when they were born, and it turns out they had been identical all along, it's just that they were sent home with the wrong brother...

The Twins Accidentally Switched at Birth And Sent Home With The Wrong Parents

FKN WOOPS. Two mothers give birth to twins on the same night at the same hospital. They take those twins home, and each raise what they assume are their non-identical twin boys. But 25 years later, through total chance, the young men discover there is someone who looks exactly like each of them living in the same city. Yep - two sets of twins had been mixed up at the hospital when they were born, and it turns out they had been identical all along, it's just that they were sent home with the wrong brother...

This week Jacob's kicking things off with a quick run-down on the massive week of Britney news before he prances into the archives and gets into the bizarre case of Gypsy Rose and Deedee Blanchard. This was one of our earliest episodes, and is still in our top five most outrageous stories. A mother poisoning her daughter - did she have Munchausen syndrome by proxy? Or was her daughter's illness part of a grift? The daughter orchestrating her mother's murder - was that self defence? Or revenge? Stick around til the end to get an update on what's happening in Gypsy's world now, 6 years on from the climax of the story and just months away from her first parole hearing.  Original story starts around 23:17 Original story ends & updates start around 1:04:38 Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Email us your suGISTions!

Rosie’s Abortions

An extreme anti-abortion law was passed in Texas this month. A woman who seeks an abortion after six weeks can be arrested, along with anybody who aids her in seeking that abortion. $10,000 bounties are being offered to the public to ‘dob’ women in. Considering most women don’t even realise they are pregnant at that early stage, this law effectively bans more than 90% of abortions in the state. Clinics are already turning women away for fear of punishment.  Every woman should have an unequivocal right to make decisions about her own body. It’s that simple.  On the other side of the world, I felt so defeated by this news. Just… overwhelmed by a sense of helplessness. But one thing I’m good at is telling stories, so I figure I can at least use that skill to contribute in a way I know how. I’m one of millions of women who have made this choice about my own body, and I’m in a position to tell that story. It’s not a big contribution, but it’s something I can do. So here is just the gist of my abortions.  - Rosie ‘Choice Words: A collection of writing about abortion’ - the book Rosie contributed her story to: https://www.booktopia.com.au/choice-words-louise-swinn/book/9781760875220.html?source=pla&gclid=Cj0KCQjw4eaJBhDMARIsANhrQADf6mTOMLCERIoaKnboXcWFatAGggQvgSKaB2dAsGTbmlHI6ndFBU0aAjYqEALw_wcB Some further reading: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/01/texas-abortion-law-supreme-court https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/sep/08/texas-abortion-vigilantes-sb8-citizens-sue https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/09/biden-administration-sue-texas-abortion-law

J.T Leroy

Widely considered the greatest literary hoax of modern times, the story of JT Leroy seems almost impossible to believe. Bursting onto the scene in 2001 with a bestselling book and heartbreaking life story, JT Leroy was a 20-year-old writing prodigy who quickly became the celebrity of the hour. He was photographed at A-List parties. Profiled in magazines. Gus Van Sant wanted to make a movie about him. Winona Ryder cried while giving a speech about him. The Smashing Pumpkins welcomed him backstage at their concerts. Madonna wanted him to join Kabbalah.  But JT Leroy didn’t exist.  So who was this person? And how did they dupe not just Hollywood, but the entire world? (TW: although JT Leroy turned out to be a fiction, this episode includes brief references to the physical and child sexual abuse described in his books.) Skip to the story!

If you’re claustrophobic you’re going to struggle with this one… A lot of you requested this story after our Baby Jessica episode, so you know it’s going to be INTENSE. In 2009, there was a massive 27-hour rescue operation to save John Edward Jones, a man who got stuck in the Nutty Putty Cave - 31 metres underground, in a rock crevice so small and tight that he couldn’t even expand his chest fully to take a proper breath.

The Great Molasses Flood

We’ve all seen the horrific damage caused by tsunamis - buildings flattened, whole towns destroyed. But what if a tsunami wasn’t made of water? What if it was made of… molasses? As crazy as it sounds, that’s exactly what happened in Boston in 1919. A tsunami of what is basically maple syrup flooded the city, and this sticky wave destroyed everything - and killed everyone - that it came across.

Eighteen-month-old Jessica McClure had fallen down an old well and was wedged almost ten metres underground for 56 hours.

Shanti Devi - the girl who convinced scientists that reincarnation is real

How did a little girl in India manage to convince not just her family, but some of the world’s biggest skeptics, that she had clear memories of a past life? From the age of four, she recognised words and places that there was no way she could know. She knew intimate details about the man she insisted was once her husband, and recognised people she’d never met, right down to knowing their names and secrets. She knew her way around the detailed streets of a town she’d never been to, and easily pointed out which house she’d once lived in. After studying her for years and putting her to the test time and time again, experts kept coming back to one conclusion: Shanti Devi was the first person to offer real proof that reincarnation is real.  We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: Shanti Devi’s biography “I Have Lived Before”, written by a former skeptic who came to be a believer:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/601269.I_Have_Lived_Before  Or you can just read a summary of it here: https://www.reincarnationresearch.com/reincarnation-case-of-lugdi-chaubey-shanti-devi-mathur-and-the-orb-phenomenon/  Get to know more about the career of Dr Ian Stevenson, one of the psychiatrists who examined and interviewed Shanti and concluded her story was true:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Stevenson  And read about cases he studied, in which children were born with physical traits that mirrored their past life or even their death:  https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/716499/reincarnation-REAL-proof-life-after-death  If you’d like a jumping off point to find out more about research that scientists are conducting into reincarnation and paranormal activity, here’s a good start: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/02/there-is-a-paranormal-activity-lab-at-the-university-of-virginia/283584/  Pooseum article in the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/jul/14/pooseum-tasmanian-museum-dedicated-to-poo-wins-three-year-heritage-battle-with-council-over-sign Skip right to the story: approx 19:51 Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Send us your suGISTions:[email protected]

Lou Pearlman - the con artist king of boy bands

So… turns out your beloved 90s boyband was nothing but a financial scam. Lou Pearlman created Backstreet Boys and Nsync, taking them from unknown teens in Florida and turning them into the biggest bands in the world. At the height of their fame, both groups were bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars, yet they were only getting paid… $30 each a day.

Lou Pearlman - the con artist king of boy bands

So… turns out your beloved 90s boyband was nothing but a financial scam. Lou Pearlman created Backstreet Boys and Nsync, taking them from unknown teens in Florida and turning them into the biggest bands in the world. At the height of their fame, both groups were bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars, yet they were only getting paid… $30 each a day. Yep - Lou Pearlman was a con artist, and he wasn’t just ripping off the boy bands he created. When authorities took a closer look, they realised he had been running the biggest Ponzi scheme in US history, and most of his investors were naive old people who thought they owned a little piece of the Backstreet Boys.

KILLDOZER

Imagine sitting at your desk at work, a day like any other. All of a sudden you hear a rumbling that gets louder, and louder. Then you look out the window and see it: a massive tank (yes - TANK), covered in guns, coming straight towards your office. You get outside just in time to see this thing completely flatten your building to the ground, then drive away. Um… WHAT? That’s exactly what happened in 2004 to the people in Granby, Colorado. Marvin Heemeyer, a local man, was angry at most people in town about a bunch of different nonsense, so he decided to take revenge by spending more than a year modifying a bulldozer into a weaponised war-like tank, which he then drove all over town for several hours destroying everything in his wake. As you do. Local businesses, the town hall, the library, even the police station - all flattened by the Killdozer. And because this thing was indestructible (bullet-proof, bomb-proof, unbreakable steel), there was nothing the police could do, but watch helplessly and hope something - anything - would stop it. It literally got to the point where the army considered dropping a bomb on it so strong it would also destroy the entire town. So what stopped the Killdozer in the end? We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: The ‘Tread’ documentary trailer: https://youtu.be/yb1hQfo4nFY The book by Patrick Brower (who was editor of the local paper that day and in one of the buildings Marvin Heemeyer attacked) - ‘Killdozer: The True Story of the Colorado Bulldozer Rampage’: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37003600-killdozer A good YouTube Breakdown: https://youtu.be/Bo9Vu_X6lKw News footage from the day: https://youtu.be/PZbG9i1oGPA Articles: https://allthatsinteresting.com/marvin-heemeyer-killdozer https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/politics/article/killdozer-rampage-preppers/amp https://www.snopes.com/news/2017/06/09/killdozer-day-marvin-heemeyer/ Marvin’s wiki:  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Heemeyer Skip right to the story: approx 27:21 Follow us on Instagram! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Email us to your suGISTions!

Biosphere 2

In 1991, a billion-dollar experiment took place, designed to see if humans could survive in an artificial earth inside a giant glass dome that would eventually be built on other planets. Years was spent building Biosphere 2 in the USA, and inside was an ocean with actual tides and waves, a rainforest, a desert, vast wetlands, a farm with crops, animals, housing and laboratories. ‘Rain’ could even be switched on and off. Eight Humans lived inside it for TWO YEARS. So why has hardly anybody has heard of it? Because it was a disaster, none of it worked, and they nearly died. Turns out, despite sounding impressive, this experiment wasn’t run by NASA or even scientists, it was run by a bunch of hippies from a cult-like experimental theatre group who had no clue what they were doing, but had duped a billionaire into giving them a lot of money. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: The documentary Spaceship Earth (in Aus you can rent or buy it on YouTube or Amazon Prime): https://youtu.be/ySQU8kzmZBo The current Biosphere 2 website (run by the University of Arizona): https://biosphere2.org/ Some great articles: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/29/sunday-review/biosphere-2-climate-change.htmlhttps://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jul/13/spaceship-earth-arizona-biosphere-2-lockdownhttps://www.history.com/.amp/news/biosphere-2-spaceship-earth Awesome footage from inside: https://www.pbs.org/video/good-stuff-nature-biosphere/https://youtu.be/eZcLeF4XM1I You can visit!

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?

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.

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/ Skip right to the story: approx 26:48 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]

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/ Skip right to the story: approx 26:48 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... We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Bitter Almonds by Gregg Olsen: https://www.amazon.com/Bitter-Almonds-Mothers-Daughters-Seattle/dp/0312982003 Forensic Files ep about Stella Nickell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZi3lUmN7FE Murderpedia page: https://murderpedia.org/female.N/n/nickell-stella.htm Chicago Tylenol Murder info: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/health/tylenol-murders-1982 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Tylenol_murders Contraceptive Pill/Blood Clot articles:https://www.pedestrian.tv/news/the-pill-blood-clots-vs-coronavirus-vaccine/ https://www.smh.com.au/national/the-pill-causes-clots-too-why-no-outrage-20210410-p57i3w.html https://www.sbs.com.au/news/the-feed/how-common-are-blood-clots-on-the-contraceptive-pill Pain and Prejudice by Gabrielle Jackson:https://www.booktopia.com.au/pain-and-prejudice-gabrielle-jackson/book/9781760878665.html Follow us on [email protected] @[email protected] Email us your suGISTions!

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. We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: The AMAZING 'Charles Manson's Hollywood' series of the 'You Must Remember This' podcast by Karina Longworth: http://www.youmustrememberthispodcast.com/episodes/2020/1/20/charles-mansons-hollywood This bestselling book considered one of the definitive texts about it all: 'Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson' by Jeff Guinn: https://www.amazon.com.au/Manson-Life-Times-Charles/dp/1451645171 'Helter Skelter' by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry - probably the most famous book about Manson, written by the lawyer who prosecuted him: https://www.amazon.com/Helter-Skelter-Story-Manson-Murders/dp/0393322238 The Rolling Stone cover story from 1970 'Charles Manson: The Incredible Story of the Most Dangerous Man Alive': https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/charles-manson-the-incredible-story-of-the-most-dangerous-man-alive-85235/ Charles Manson's first televised prison interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbW0agGFv88 From Breakin' Nooz:Watch 'EXPOSED: The Ghost Train Fire' on ABC iView: https://iview.abc.net.au/show/exposed-the-ghost-train-fire Follow brilliant journalist Caro Meldrum-Hanna on twitter, who investigated the show and provides all the updates you need on possible future inquests etc: https://twitter.com/caromeldrum Skip right to the story: approx 27:02 Get tickets to Rosie's one-woman show Kid Chameleon! https://moretalent.com.au/tours/rosiewaterland/ Follow us on Insta! @JustTheGistPodcast @RosieWaterland @JacobWilliamStanley Email us your suGISTtions!

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 Skip right to the story: approx 20:41 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!

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  Skip right to the story: approx 19:02 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/  Skip right to the story: approx 25:04 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?

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 Skip right to the story: approx 21:51

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.

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 Skip right to the story: approx 22:19 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.

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.

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 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.

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? Story starts at approx 24:34 We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: Watch the documentary The Woman Who Wasn't There: https://tubitv.com/movies/319707/the-woman-who-wasn-t-there Read the book of The Woman Who Wasn’t There:  https://www.booktopia.com.au/the-woman-who-wasn-t-there-robin-gaby-fisher/book/9781451652093.html Angelo Guglielmo explains how he came to make the film and write the book: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/9-11-survivor-book_b_1399852 David Dunlap’s 2007 article that revealed all of Tania’s lies:  https://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/27/nyregion/27survivor.html?auth=login-email&login=email Documentary about the hoax from 2008 called The 9/11 Faker: https://watchdocumentaries.com/the-911-faker/ RECCOS!

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!

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?  Story starts at approx 14:41 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? Story starts at approx 14:36 We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Make sure you watch the Finders Keepers documentary on Amazon Prime or Google Play - you will LOVE it! https://www.amazon.com/Finders-Keepers-John-Wood/dp/B079599877  Rolling Stone article that came out around the time of the Finders Keepers documentary: https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-news/two-men-and-a-severed-foot-inside-the-most-bizarre-doc-of-the-year-72903/   Hear Shannon talking about the movie and his plans for the future in an episode of the podcast “In the Mouth of Dorkness”: http://inthemouthofdorkness.podbean.com/e/the-foot-man-in-the-mouth-of-dorkness/ Or just read a summary of it here in an obituary for Shannon published shortly after his death in 2016: https://filmschoolrejects.com/win-win-winning-e5377c8b9f97/#.eltnvxb8e Email us!

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? Story starts at approx 14:36 We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there's this: Make sure you watch the Finders Keepers documentary on Amazon Prime or Google Play - you will LOVE it! https://www.amazon.com/Finders-Keepers-John-Wood/dp/B079599877  Rolling Stone article that came out around the time of the Finders Keepers documentary: https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-news/two-men-and-a-severed-foot-inside-the-most-bizarre-doc-of-the-year-72903/   Hear Shannon talking about the movie and his plans for the future in an episode of the podcast “In the Mouth of Dorkness”: http://inthemouthofdorkness.podbean.com/e/the-foot-man-in-the-mouth-of-dorkness/ Or just read a summary of it here in an obituary for Shannon published shortly after his death in 2016: https://filmschoolrejects.com/win-win-winning-e5377c8b9f97/#.eltnvxb8e Email us!

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.

Adolphe Sax - the guy who invented the saxophone

(Yes he named it after himself - wouldn’t you? HE IS THE REASON FOR KICK-ARSE 80s SAX SOLOS.) The saxophone is kind of the least interesting thing about this guy. He literally cheated death about 57 times, starting with swallowing a 6-inch needle when he was a toddler, followed by accidentally drinking a cup of poison and surviving assassination attempts from people who were jelly that the saxophone was just so awesome and their instruments were lame.  Rosie is convinced Kenny G went back in time to make sure he survived Story starts at approx 26:48 We give you Just The Gist, but if you want more, there’s this: The Belgian city where Adolphe was born (Dinante) loves to celebrate their local hero - check out their Sax dedicated page here: http://www.dinant.be/en/inheritance/adolphe-sax  Stephen Cottrell wrote a very comprehensive biography of Adolphe Sax in his book The Saxophone (which you might have to dig to find if you are keen to read it - it’s out of print and it's rare) Here are the first articles Jacob came across that piqued his interest: https://allthatsinteresting.com/adolphe-sax  http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2019/07/the-surprisingly-badass-life-of-the-inventor-of-the-saxophone-adolphe-sax/  Mary Trump’s book that Rosie read: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Too_Much_and_Never_Enough The William Shatner show on Binge that Rosie couldn’t remember the name of (it’s ‘The UnXplained’ btw 😂): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_UnXplained Email us!
