Welcome back to Behind The Screams, I'm your host Aran and this week we are taking a closer look at the inspiration behind the movie - The Town That Dreaded Sundown - better known as Texarkana Moonlight Murders.The residents of Texarkana have been haunted by the events known as the Texarkana Moonlight Murders since 1946. That year, a masked murderer killed five people and seriously injured three others in a series of attacks that shook the town to its core. According to Texas Monthly, the presence of a serial killer (before the term was even coined) so spooked Texarkanans that they stocked up on guns and guard dogs, booby-trapped their homes, and even slept in hotels for safety after police failed for months to bring in the man the Texarkana Gazette christened the Phantom Killer.Credit - https://www.grunge.com/328814/the-famous-movie-inspired-by-the-texarkana-murder-mystery/For more content, follow here - https://linktr.ee/FirstClassHorror

Austin resident and master of psychedelic funk, Kalu James, sits down with Tom to reminiscence about their fateful first introduction in the rugged mountains of Utah. Along the way, hear a journey of musical enlightenment, peek into Kalu's storytelling, and sit down with two friends who found their way together during a period of isolation. Kalu and the Electric Joint are considered one of the best bands on the Austin music scene right now. With their distinct sound, they have a vibrant live show that enhances their dynamic and uplifting songwriting. Kalu James sits down with Tom and shows his off stage persona as the two share stories of when they met, how their pandemic experience shaped them, and how their experience of moving to Austin has aligned (or misaligned) with their expectations. Texas Monthly has said Kalu and the Electric Joint “pulls Austin's sounds into the global diaspora: this is psych rock with more than a dash of Jamaican dub, Southern soul, and Nigerian funk.” Kalu James grew up the son of a village chief in Nigeria and moved to Austin to enmesh himself in the live music scene. He's been on the scene as a songwriter for years, and when he began a month-long residency at the Continental Club Gallery with another Austin mainstay, guitarist JT Holt, they both knew there was chemistry afoot. Their weekly shows would last nearly three years and along the way, drummer John Speice joined the party, officially forming Kalu And The Electric Joint. The Joint was originally an only-in-Austin conception. Now, they have released their debut album, to introduce the world to the blues-rock, American soul and African polyrhythms. Time Undone, recorded over the period of a year out in Driftwood, Texas, and produced by Brett Orrison (Black Angels, Widespread Panic) include guest stars from members of Widespread Panic, War On Drugs, The Sword and Grupo Fantasma, who all contribute to a soulful world groove. Enjoy Kalu and the Electric Joint's single Garden of Eden at the end of the podcast.

On Friday's show: Vice President Kamala Harris tours Johnson Space Center today as NASA tries to clear the way for another Artemis I launch attempt in the coming weeks. We learn more about her visit and what NASA has to do to get the mission off the ground. And, with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, we look back on the time she visited Houston in 1991. Also this hour: When then-President George W. Bush was first informed a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, University of Houston alum Brian Montgomery was with him. Montgomery is a former Deputy Secretary at HUD and former director of the Office of Presidential Advance. He's taking part in events commemorating 9/11 on campus Friday. He joins us to share his first-hand account of that day's events. Then we discuss how and why the University of Houston is investing so heavily in athletics – and whether its attendance problem at football games is even a problem. Texas Monthly contributor Richard Justice weighs in.  And we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week, including a new noise ordinance for bars and clubs and a local high school football team breaking its 42-game losing streak.

Today, we not only get to talk tacos, we also get to talk barbecue and where the two intersect. Today we speak to Joe Zavala from Zavala's Barbecue. Zavala's Barbecue is in Grand Prairie, Texas. It's owned by Christan and pitmaster Joe Zavala. Zavala's, the barbecue joint, began as a backyard pop-up before moving into a brick-and-mortar in 2019. It's been a hit ever since, finally gaining the esteemed honor of a spot on the 2021 Texas Monthly's Top 50 Barbecue Joints list, something he had been striving for since opening and celebrated by drinking champagne out of his shoe, after the F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo's signature celebratory move. I find it disgusting. Joe Zavala, however, is amazing.  Joe has his own podcast, Brisket and Main, named after the intersection where Zavala's is. He has a YouTube video series with Meat Church barbecue rub and sauce company. He's been a featured chef at Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks games. He also hosts regular barbecue classes at Four Corners Brewing Co.  Perhaps most importantly, after being diagnosed with cancer in 2019—the same year he opened his restaurant—Joe and his wife established the Zavala Family Foundation, which helps restaurant industry families dealing with cancer. Joe is currently in remission. Here's the kicker, Zavala's Barbecue and everything connected to it is a side hustle. So download and enjoy some of the takes of this episode like some of the briskets he throws down on a weekly basis.

From the 1960s and into the 1990s, Madalyn Murray O'Hair was the voice and face of atheism in the United States.

When the three went missing in September of 1995 under suspicious circumstances, local law enforcement, family, even friends were slow to respond.

This week on the podcast, author and podcaster Sarah Hepola is back!  On her last visit to The Unspeakable, back in March, Sarah and Meghan talked about Sarah's bombshell Atlantic Magazine article, The Things I'm Afraid To Write. But they got a little sidetracked by some other subjects, including the barely-known details of the Stanford swimmer rape case, which Sarah has researched in depth. In this conversation, which was recorded exactly a week after the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Sarah talks about the immediate aftermath of that decision in Texas, where she lives, and why the alarm bells on social media don't necessarily correspond to the actual mood on the ground. She reflects on her own choices and wonders if those who will now be forced to become parents will find their positions change—in both directions—as the result of their circumstances. Finally, she and Meghan reflect on being called “neocons” by someone on Twitter and wonder what happened around 2014 that caused some of the freest and most privileged women in the world to reimagine their lives as a chronic struggle.    Note: The Unspeakable Podcast will be on summer hiatus until Labor Day. In the meantime, you can check out Meghan's new podcast with Sarah Haider, A Special Place In Hell, at aspecialplace.substack.com or wherever you get your podcast. You can also learn about The Unspeakeasy, Meghan's community-in-progress for freethinking women at theunspeakeasy.com    Guest Bio: Sarah Hepola is the author of the memoir Blackout, the host of the Texas Monthly-produced documentary podcast America's Girls and the co-host, with Nancy Rommelmann of the podcast Smoke 'em If You Got Em.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for July 10, 2022 is: gibbous • JIB-us • adjective Gibbous is most often used to describe a moon or planet that is seen with more than half, but not all, of the apparent disk illuminated. // The lake's calm surface glistened under the light of the waxing gibbous moon. See the entry > Examples: "Eventually, we lay our heads down on our pillows beneath a clear sky (no tent required) and a bright gibbous moon that left the canyon well illuminated. I never even unpacked a flashlight." — David Courtney, Texas Monthly, July 2022 Did you know? The adjective gibbous has its origins in the Latin noun gibbus, meaning "hump." It was adopted into Middle English to describe rounded, convex things. While it has been used to describe the rounded body parts of humans and animals (such as the back of a camel) and to describe the shape of certain flowers (such as snapdragons), the term is most often used to describe the moon: a gibbous moon is one that is between half full and full.

My four years of college I dated the campus local DJ. I loved watching him practice, not just because of the stars in my eyes, but I also love seeing artists practice their craft and seeing what all goes into it. Good DJing is a skill, it is an actual skill. Just go to YouTube, type in ‘turntablism,' and just watch magic happen. My guest today is H Drew Blackburn, a writer and yes, a DJ, and he's going to get into all things DJing and how it brings peace into his life.   Indulgence Nichole recommends specificity.   Guest Drew Blackburn is a writer whose work has been published by GQ, Texas Monthly, Dallas Morning News, Deadspin, Complex, and more.

In the summer of 1980, a beloved 30-year-old schoolteacher, wife, and mother was murdered with an ax in her Texas home while her husband was away on a business trip. This killing and the subsequent discovery of her killer were so shocking that both Hulu and HBO Max have shows based on the case, though the belief of what really happened that fateful day remains divided.
