The Generation Why Podcast
Summary: Unsolved murders, controversies, mysteries, conspiracies, as well as anything that impacts our culture. Each podcast, Justin & Aaron find a new topic and break it down. And, of course, we get in to the 'why' of it as well. Thanks for listening.
Casey Anthony. Justin and Aaron discuss the case of a woman who was put on trial for the death of her 2 year-old daughter, Caylee. The media was obsessed with her, the public seemed to want her convicted, and defenders claimed she was a victim herself. Will we be sympathetic to Casey Anthony's plight? Or will we feel as though justice wasn't served? Episode 30 reveals all.
Was Percy Schmeiser unfairly prosecuted? Are people dying of organ failure? Are women becoming sterile? Have more than 270,000 Indian farmers committed suicide because of GMO seed? Is cancer on the rise because of frankenfoods? We dissect Monsanto and the push back from organic activists.
William Heirens was the longest serving inmate in U.S. history. He confessed to murdering two women and a little girl. To understand how a teenage thief could become known as the notorious Lipstick Killer, one must first go back to the Chicago of the 1940's. A time when the press could print whatever it wished and the police could use just about any means necessary to get a suspect to bend to their will.
