About Us

Nature vs Narcissism is a true crime/comedy podcast based in Cincinnati, Ohio where Heather and her guests discuss true crimes and the narcissists who commit them. Sometimes we have alcohol and sometimes things get weird. In Season 1, we went down the alphabet focusing on different murderers and/or stupid criminals based on their name. For example; Episode 1 examines two notorious murderers whose names begin with the letter A. Season 2 we will go down the alphabet focusing on different serial killers/spree killers/murderers who were from or committed most of their crimes in cities/towns with each respective letter of the alphabet. For example, we may focus on someone from Cincinnati, Ohio for the letter C. Every episode is different and every episode is entertaining! We will delve into whether we think nature made the criminals commit these heinous acts, or if it's simply their narcissism getting the best of them. Keep in mind, this podcast is strictly for entertainment purposes and is in no way a professional diagnosis of the subjects discussed.

J (Japan) Miyuki Ishikawa

EIn this episode, Courtney is back with another history-filled case involving a midwife who committed a TON of infanticide. Miyuki Ishikawa was born in 1897 and is believed to have murdered somewhere between 85 and 169 infants with the help of accomplices throughout the 1940s in Tokyo, Japan. Her sentence behind bars was a mere 4 years, which is quite light considering that her death toll is higher than any other serial killer in Japan.*This episode has some Patreon announcements*Subscribe to:The Cult of Domesticity PodcastOur theme music was created and customized by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.

I (Indianapolis, Indiana) Pt2: Howard Arthur Allen

EIn this episode, Part 2 of the Indianapolis, Indiana episodes, Heather is joined by Justin from Mysterious Circumstances to discuss Howard Arthur Allen. He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1949 and is currently sitting in prison, serving his sentence. He was originally sentenced to death on June 11, 1988 but that sentence was later commuted to life in prison. He murdered at least three elderly women (Opal Cooper, 85 / Laverne Hale, 87 / Ernestine Griffin, 73), severely beat another woman, and committed arson on an elderly man’s home. All of his crimes had an underlying factor of burglary. Police suspect that there may be as many as 11 more victims…but have been unable to prove that. This episode is filled with speculation as there isn’t a lot known about his childhood. Additionally, this episode contains touchy subject matter (the death penalty debate) and a glimpse into several other Indiana crimes as well as issues within the justice system in Indiana. You’ve been warned.Subscribe to: Mysterious Circumstances Podcast Our theme music was created and customized by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.

I (Indianapolis, indiana) Pt1: Herbert Baumeister

EIn this episode, Heather is joined by Danielle from Hoosier Homicide to discuss Herbert Baumeister. He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1947 and died after a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in 1996. He was on the run from police who were searching his 18-acre farm for bodies of his victims – of which they found at least 11. Now, it is debated as to whether or not he killed more than 11 and to this day, he is not technically considered a confirmed serial killer as police were never able to prove it AND he killed himself before being apprehended. His victim type was young homosexual men whom he would pick up from gay bars and take to his mansion where he would have sex with them (often using auto erotic asphyxiation to pleasure himself) and then (presumably) kill and dispose of their bodies.
