Radium Girls

EIn the late 1900s, teenage girls and young women were hired at the United States Radium Company to paint watch dials with glowing paint. Unbeknownst to them, this paint was actually made with a highly dangerous radioactive substance that would cause harrowing pain, cancer, and death. The victims fought a difficult uphill battle for justice because the company tried to cover up their deaths by claiming they died from Syphilis, not radiation poisoning. ALSO: Ali got an infrared blanket and wonders if it’s dangerous. Melissa used to swim in water next to a nuclear power plant because it was warm. — EMAIL US: Webcrawlerspod@gmail.com LEAVE US A VOICEMAIL: 626-604-6262 — FOLLOW US: Twitter Instagram Reddit Facebook — To join our Patreon click HERE — MERCH: https://webcrawlerspod.com — See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Samaritan Foundation Cult & Missing Allen Ross

EOn November 22, 1995, filmmaker Allen Ross disappeared without a trace. Allen was part of a religious cult called the Samaritan Foundation, that was led by his wife Linda Greene. Linda believed vampires could gain access to her by talking on the phone, negative energy could be washed away with soy milk, and barcodes were evil. Years later, Allen's body was found, but no one was ever charged with the murder. Linda’s ex-husband Denis is still alive and working as an inspirational Evangelist speaker who says he survived a “miracle” by riding a wheelie on a motorcycle through a pack of baboons. ALSO: Ali demonstrates how to use a pendulum. — EMAIL US: Webcrawlerspod@gmail.com LEAVE US A VOICEMAIL: 626-604-6262 — FOLLOW US: Twitter Instagram Reddit Facebook — To join our Patreon click HERE — MERCH: https://webcrawlerspod.com — See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

MAILBAG: Pyramid Scheme Victim & Found Ghost Story

The Lost Colony of Roanoke

In 1587, John White led a group of 118 colonists to the first English settlement on Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina. But when the colony's leader, John White, made a trip back to England to get supplies, he returned to Roanoke to find all the settlers had vanished. They left behind only a single clue, the word “Croatoan” carved into a post. The colonists were never seen again. Historians and archaeologists have been trying to figure out what happened to those initial settlers ever since. THEORIES: They integrated into the Lumbee Tribe, they were kidnapped by another tribe, they died from diseases, they moved inland for more food, or they tried to sail back to England. ALSO: Maria gets furious over Melissa not knowing what the Brave Little Toaster is. — New theme song by Nick Bowen: https://soundcloud.com/nick-bowen-music/web-crawlers# — EMAIL US: Webcrawlerspod@gmail.com LEAVE US A VOICEMAIL: 626-604-6262 — FOLLOW US: Twitter Instagram Reddit Facebook — To join ...

Women-Led Cult: Blackburn

In 1920’s Los Angeles, a mother/daughter duo of sixty-year-old May Otis Blackburn and her 24-year-old daughter Ruth started a cult called Blackburn with the goal of swindling members out of money.

There was also an attempted resurrection of a 16 year old girl whose corpse had been stored in a wooden box in a makeshift mausoleum underneath her parents' house. The cult was so bizarre that justices on the California Supreme Court in 1931 admitted, “they have never heard anything so weird.” ALSO: The mother/daughter cult-like group called The Angelic Initiative who post daily videos of themselves speaking to angels and doing odd exercises. — EMAIL US: Webcrawlerspod@gmail.com LEAVE US A VOICEMAIL: 626-604-6262 — FOLLOW US: Twitter Instagram Reddit Facebook — To join our Patreon click HERE — MERCH: https://webcrawlerspod.com — See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
