    Boyzone obsessions and black magic paedophile rings consumed the mind of Sabrina Koudier. And her neighbours turned a blind eye to the strange woman's violent outbursts and vile treatment of her au pair. It wasn't their place to get involved.

    Listen here: http://wondery.fm/RH_TEOBLB On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she'd scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando. Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny's killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date. This is the story of Robert and Bonny's toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta? From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong.  Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

The resulting explosion killed Abedi and 22 other innocent people, and left over 1,000 more injured.  The country mourned, millions of pounds were raised, and we all promised not to let hate win.

But despite its reputation, ‘The Satanic Verses' isn't a page-by-page deconstruction of Islam.

    On the 5th of October 1974, the Provisional Irish Republican Army blew up a military pub in Guildford, killing four soldiers, one civilian and injuring sixty-five others. The responsibility for the heinous act of terror was quickly thrown at three young Irish men and a seventeen-year-old English girl. On top of this, accusations of running a  "bomb factory" was soon being shouldered by a middle-aged Irish woman who'd lived in England for twenty years. The British justice system had no evidence to prove the Guildford Four or Maguire Seven were connected to any bombings, but a large helping of police brutality and a bit of systemic corruption would soon sort that out.

    Presenting a sneak peek of Pushkin's new podcast, Bad Women: The Ripper Retold. In 1888, five female prostitutes were brutally murdered in a London slum-- attacks so violent the killer earned a nickname: Jack the Ripper. For centuries, we have assumed these women were indeed “Bad Women,” ...but what if everything we know about them is wrong?  Historian Hallie Rubenhold has uncovered the true stories of the Ripper's victims. They all struggled against the misogyny that thrived in Victorian England, until they found themselves in the path of one of the most vicious killers in history. Bad Women is a must-listen, rich in historical detail and suspenseful enough to satisfy any true crime fan.  You can hear more episodes of Bad Women at https://link.chtbl.com/redhandedbadwomen
