    Tim Miller is a famous search-and-rescuer in Dickinson, Texas, who's helped track down more than 300 missing persons. After 38 years of searching, he's now convinced that he's finally solved his own daughter's murder.  In the first season of VIGILANTE, Allie Conti (New York Times, Vice) explores the human cost of Tim's singular obsession with the case—from the people he's falsely accused in the past, to the current girlfriend he's put in the crosshairs of a possible serial killer. As Allie prepares to interview the suspect in person, she grapples with whether she might be the latest victim of Tim's vigilantism.   Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/vigilante/id1622288667 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/49wzulSXKQKWYOIWoTVEPT?si=d9bb79b8fb9243e2 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    From Jason and Carissa Weiser, the hosts of Myths and Legends, comes Scoundrel: History's Forgotten Villains. History consists of heroes and villains (and, I suppose everything in between)... but it's usually the villains who are the most interesting: Their flaws, their quirks, the voids in their hearts that force them to do the unthinkable. These are the characters that fascinate us, that pull us in, that compel us to watch and don't let us look away. And these are the characters that Scoundrel: History's Forgotten Villains is all about. Scoundrel, is a new bi-weekly anthology podcast from Kast Media and the award winning creators of Myths & Legends, that tells the stories of the rapscallions through time who were just a little more adept at hiding their evil from historians than others. By joining them on their treacherous journeys, we not only learn about what makes them tick, but more importantly, the times that created them. Sidney Gottlieb, George Remus, Hetty Green, Thomas Blood, James McClintock. They've all done horrible things...on varying scales. If there's anything we can salvage from their misdeeds and incalculable human suffering, it's the opportunity to use them to elucidate the times they've lived… so that we can better understand ourselves.   Listen anywhere you get podcasts: Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/scoundrel-historys-forgotten-villains/id1609801925 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3KRjtrNffxIZzCb6gGxPCN?si=2ae9d508ac5744e9  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

All of this set against the backdrop of two young people trying to find their place in the world after being abandoned by their parents. The creatures this time love humans. Like, a lot.

    235-Korean Folklore: Ghost Story

    Three stories from Korean folklore! On the first, a boy loves collecting stories, but no one really taught him proper story care, so they went the way of so many carnival goldfish. On the second, a young man protests his unfair (and kind of murdery) working conditions...by turning his boss's lunchbox into a toilet. On the third, there are people, there are cows, and no one can tell the two apart. The creature is the ziz, and it wrecks cities by accident. -- Twitter: https://myths.link/twitter Shop: https://myths.link/store Membership: https://www.mythpodcast.com/membership -- Sponsors: Simplisafe!
