It's MM's turn at the wheel and she brings us the tale of the first televangelist in the U.S., Aimee Semple McPherson - her rise to prominence in the 1920s, and her strange disappearance and the circumstances around it. What do you think happened? We recorded this on Labor Day weekend where Katy resembled a burrito-eating gremlin and MM was eaten a…
 
Katy watched the Circleville Letters episode of 48 Hours so you don't have to. Learn about the small town in Ohio that was terrorized by anonymous letters about town secrets, starting in 1976 and stopping in 1993. Hundreds of letters were sent, but the main target seems to be Mary Gillispie and her family. Also: two tiny internet mystery amuse bouc…
 
Katy returns to her fandom roots this week with a tale of no-stakes internet drama: the tale of MsScribe and her rise and fall in the Harry Potter fandom. JK Rowling is trash, but the shenanigans the fandom got up to after the release of Goblet of Fire is DELICIOUS. But first! MM went on a road trip that was... something. Katy used to cosplay at an…
 
And we're back! MM's here with Part 2 of her story on the Order of the Solar Temple, where we do a deeper look into their origins and beliefs, as well as their two leaders, Joseph Di Mambro and Luc Jouret.

A two parter? From MM? It's more likely than you think. MM's story this week is about a cult, the Order of the Solar Temple. In part one, she goes over the outcome of the story, where several events of mass death occur in 1994 and bring the Order into the public consciousness. The investigations into these deaths are MADDENING. But first, there's a…
 
Katy gets very literal this week and brings us a wine-based mystery by covering the story of Rudy Kurniawan, the first person to be charged with wine fraud in the U.S, from the 2016 documentary, "Sour Grapes." Content warning: you're really going to hate rich douchebags during this episode, but since you probably already DO... let's get into it. It…

Who the hell came up with over the hill parties? Katy has…
 
MM's telling a story that is full of way too many twists and turns to be contained in one episode: the 2003 murder of Brian Wells, which included a collar bomb, a bank heist, and lots of evil masterminding from Marjorie Diehl Armstrong. Also included, a BTS/Ginger Demon update. MM texting Katy about booby traps prompts no context questions or follo…

MM starts off this episode with some fun Lizard News... HOWEVER, she follows it up with a doozy of a mystery - the September 10, 2001 disappearance of Dr. Sneha Philip. Get ready to hate the patriarchy and heteronormativity (more than you already should and do). There are a lot of twists and turns here - get ready to take a drink any time we say HO…
 
We're back with Katy reporting in from the surface of the sun (...or Seattle in a historic heat cone) with some strange medical mysteries. If you are a hypochondriac... be warned, these maladies are wild and only provide more evidence that the brain is a terrifying place. Learn about aquagenic urticaria, or being ALLERGIC TO WATER, and a mystery br…
 
It's MM's turn for a story this week and we're headed back to Texas for the mystery of Pecos Jane Doe.

Meanwhile, a Jane Doe drowns in a pool at the Ropers Motel in Pecos, TX. There's a lot of twists and turns in this…
 
Hello, listeners - this week Katy brings you a smattering of Seattle/Washington state tales for you: a mysterious soda machine that dispenses rare sodas (hear us learn what Pepsi AM is in REAL TIME), but it currently off on a journey to find itself, a gravity hill where if you put your car in neutral it will go up the hill (because of... child ghos…
 
Katy's back to her proper coast so we are once again bicoastal besties. While we were mono-coastal, we took a little walk to a demonic house, which you get to hear all about, popped a bottle, and generally lived our best lives (and Katy got to meet PA Moxie). This week, MM brings us the tale of the Marion Murders of Fairfax County, VA, a story from…

[checks notes] Fair…
 
MM brings us the story of the Love Has Won cult and the rise and mysterious fall of its "Mother God," Amy Carlson. Love Has Won originated in 2006 and hold on to your butts, this is a RIDE. We talk about our own levels of susceptibility for cults, our preferred excuses for if we find ourselves in the line for brands (GO BIG), the telltale signs of …

Listeners, how did you get interested in true crime and mysteries?

Look at us! Who would've thought? We also talk about Super Husband's SECOND bru…
 
Hello, listeners... We're taking a break from Beyond Belief for a few weeks (but staying in the 90s) to cover a true crime case that is local to MM's neck of the woods and we have a coincidental connection to: the Chen Family murders in Great Falls, Virginia in August 1995. Ed Chen murdered his mother, father, and brother in their home and went und…

Stories start as 23:00 For donations please visit Paypal.me…
 
Season 2, Episode 13 of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction goes out with a whimper and its leftover stories, but that doesn't mean we don't have a blast covering them and coming full circle with our nostalgia and love of mysteries. (And full circle with something inexplicably going wonky with Katy's audio.) Pro tip: If you're holding a baby, try to hol…
 
In this episode we break our record for how long it takes us to intro the podcast, but don't let that scare you. Welcome to Season 2, Episode 12 of Beyond Belief, Fact or Fiction where the theme(?) is a ~touch of evil.~ We're headed to Florida (honestly, they could set a whole season of this show and it would all be fact, amirite), a demon-infested…
 
This episode is purposefully in a shambles, listeners, since Season 2, Episode 11 of Beyond Belief focuses on DISASTERS. Can rings melt together to save you from a fateful voyage? Can someone sense a volcano eruption on the other side of the world in their dreams? Can a director stop these actors from mouthbreathing? Do angels pick a few people to …

We are obSESSED with the late 90s references and styles on Beyond Belief, listeners, but not the casual late 90s racism. Katy's guessing again for Season 2, Episode 10 this week, where the stories are animal-related and exasperated-sigh-inducing. America is obSESSED with motorcycles, but not Danny's Hog Heaven or random Jay Leno name drops. We keep…
 
Y'all ready for this? No, listeners, you are indeed not ready for Episode 21 of the Wine Times Mysteries, where MM is in the hot seat for Season 2, Episode 9 of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction. Katy got Animal Crossing and her life is different now. MM always bets on ghosts. Somehow, everyone survives a haunted bucket. (Not a haunted chair, though.)…
 
We continue our coverage of Beyond Belief Season 2 with Episode 8 this week - it's Katy's turn to guess FACT or FICTION on stories as varied as a murderous animatronic gorilla, committing some light B&E for a hot ghost, a sleepwalking cop with an improbable beachfront home, an evil chair, and... people running late. Nothing special, just... ten min…
 
Austyn and Repy discuss two cases of killer women. First up is Sheila LaBarre, who used her looks to draw men into a murderous trap. Then, we discuss Mary Mallon, aka Typhoid Mary, who ignored the warnings of doctors and public health officials with fatal consequences.

This week it's Season 2, Episode 7, and MM is sorting through the "ambiguity of truth" (okay, show, calm down). Will MM improve her guessing record? One of our tales is full of French accents as performed if they'd …
 
It's that time of the week again - join us for Season 2, Episode 6 of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction plus a bonus live wine selection as Katy picks her delivery for the month. What counts as foul language? Beyond Belief cribs from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Katy was bit by a spider but all it gave her was a hot take: Seinfeld was bad. There…

Beyond Belief really half-assed their theme this week, listeners. It's time for some (sort of) Friday the 13th tales!

Are the Beyond Belief writers tangentially responsible for Oscar-winn…

It's a new era, listeners! Welcome to our first episode covering Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction - this time we're watching Season 2, Episode 1 because, as you'll hear, we both felt very strongly about starting in the Frakes era.

It's 2021, listeners! To celebrate, we got you a... very rough episode about the Unsolved Mysteries reboot episode, "Stolen Kids," covering the 1989 kidnappings of two toddlers in Harlem.
