236: On Our Signal. Virgin Islands National Park.

Take to Google, type in “US Virgin Islands” and you’ll be met with photos of turquoise waters and smiling faces sipping on drinks atop sparkling white sand. This destination is among the most popular in the Caribbean for vacationers, but it was once at the core of the transatlantic slave trade. Today we discuss what has gone down in history as the 1733 Akwamu Insurrection, an event in which thousands of enslaved Africans took fate into their own hands as they rose up against their oppressors - an event which was among the first, longest running and bloodiest rebellions in North American history.

234: The Solved Shenandoah Murders with Kathryn Miles

In June of 1996 two women, Julie Williams and Lollie Winans, were found brutally murdered in Shenandoah National Park. Their murderer (or murderers) were never found and the case has remained unsolved, until now. On June 20, 2024 the FBI announced that the assailant has been identified as Walter Leo Jackson Sr. Today we sit down for the second time, with Kathryn Miles, author and investigative journalist who has dedicated years of her life researching this case and uncovering faults in the investigation. While the FBI has closed the case, she unveils in this interview that there are a lot more questions that need to be answered, including the possibility of more victims. This case might be labeled as closed, but in reality, this new information has just opened up a whole new investigation. If you have any information concerning this case, please contact the FBI’s Toll-Free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324). You may also contact your local FBI office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or you can submit a tip online at  [Electronic Tip Form | FBI] (http://tips.fbi.gov/)   We love our National Parks and we know you do too but when you're out there, remember to enjoy the view but watch your back.

231: Blood in the Water, Blood on Our Hands. Cape Cod National Seashore.

Sharks have swum the world’s waters for millennia – there is a reason they are referred to as living dinosaurs. Their presence globally is not new, but their comeback in certain parts of the world is not celebrated by everyone. In September of 2018, Arthur Medici was killed while recreating in the waters off Cape Cod after sustaining a white shark bite. His death, the first shark related death in state history since 1936, has sparked an intense debate about the sharks, seals and people who live, work and play in the waters of the Atlantic. Arthur’s death prompted the question - what do we do? But also, - haven’t we already done enough?

229: She Lived Until Morning ft. Jean Muenchrath

Today we sit down for a conversation with Jean Muenchrath. We touch upon her tragic fall off Mount Whitney, but really dive into her story after the accident. Jean brings us through her recovery, her travels and how transforming her mindset changed her life just as much as the incident in the Sierra’s. Jean also sheds light on the importance of mental fortitude and how sharing stories of personal struggle is a strength.

223: For the Fallen. Project Recover ft. Derek Abbey.

Today we are joined by Derek Abbey, Project Recover’s President and CEO to speak about the organization - a collaborative effort to enlist 21st century science and technology in a quest to find and repatriate the nearly 81,000 Americans missing in action since World War II. He lets us in on the important work the project does around the world, and the impact it has on countless families. He also touches on “Angel Taps” and spooky encounters he’s experienced on missions, and agrees that sometimes, help from the other side can lead us in the right direction.
