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.

E (Epazoyucan, Hidalgo, Mexico) Juana Barraza

In this episode, Heather and Rachelle discuss another female serial killer! Her nickname was La Luchadora...which means “the fighter”. Why, you ask? Well, in Mexico, professional wrestling is a popular form of entertainment. But it’s a bit different than one might expect by the name...in Mexico, professional wrestling aka Lucha Libre has a certain sense of pageantry. Luchadores (aka wrestlers), often wear colorful masks as they perform different acrobatic leaps off the ropes to grapple with their opponents. But Juana Barraza had a more sinister side to her. She lived somewhat of a double life. Her day consisted of working as a popcorn vendor and sometimes a luchadora at a wrestling venue in Mexico City. She was described as being stocky and strong. Barraza took to the ring as The Lady of Silence as she competed in the amateur circuit. By night, she was a completely different person - known as Mataviejitas, or “little old lady killer.” She may have killed up to 50 woman who were...

E (Eugene, OR) Unidentified Killer

In this episode, Heather is joined by her sister Kim again; to discuss a killer from Eugene, Oregon who is STILL UNIDENTIFIED. With the new technology being used today (Parabon Nano Labs); police in Oregon have been able to link three cold case homicides to the same unknown suspect. What we do know is that the suspect is a MALE. The three victims are 62-year-old Gladys May Hensley (murdered in June of 1986), 33-year-old Janice Marie Dickinson (murdered in June of 1986), and 73-year-old Geraline Spencer Toohey (murdered in February of 1988). In this episode, you’ll learn what Parabon Nano Labs is doing to help solve cold cases and what Snapshot Phenotyping is. You’ll also hear an excerpt from Chapter 6 of Status Pending Podcast where this technology is being used in an unsolved case from 2004.

D (Dakota Country, Wyoming or Dat B****) Polly Bartlett

In this episode, Heather and Rachelle travel to Dakota Country/Dakota Territory, WY; way back in 1868, to discuss a woman who may or may not have been the murderer of at least 22 men. This case is different from previous episodes as we aren’t 100% sure whether or not the details are based on factual information. Even though we found a decent amount of information, there is debate about the accuracy of the events. If true though, this B**** was manipulative and had her daddy wrapped so far around her finger that he worked with her in robbing and disposing of the bodies.

D (Detroit, Michigan) James Matthews

In this episode, Heather is joined by her sister Kim to discuss a killer from Detroit, Michigan who had “slipped through the cracks”. 65-year-old James Matthews is a suspect in two homicides in Michigan, three in Texas, and one in New York. He was being held in jail for allegedly strangling a 35-year-old woman. Since no charges were filed within the required 72 hours, he was released from jail. About four months later, police had enough evidence to move forward with a murder warrant. As you’ll hear in the episode, apparently the police “flubbed” this case.

C (Canton, MI) Arthur Ream

In this episode, Heather is joined by Scott from Frozen Truth Podcast to discuss a man who admits that he is attracted to young girls, has been arrested for raping young girls, and buried a 13-year old girl in 1986 but swears that he’s never killed anyone. We’ve labeled this as the Canton, MI episode as that is where a couple of his potential victims were from. Police have even stated that he may be linked to four to six murders of girls who range in age from 12 to 17 who disappeared between 1970 and 1982. In this episode, you will hear from Ream, in his own words, about the day 13-year-old Cindy Zarzycki went missing in 1986. He gives a chilling account about what transpired and why the police weren’t called that day. We would love to hear your thoughts on this case. Is he telling the truth? Is he a serial killer?Subscribe to Frozen Truth PodcastSubscribe to Bad In The Boondocks PodcastPurchase your live show tickets to see Getting Off Podcast& Ignorance Was Bliss Podcastlive in...

C (Cleveland, Ohio) Ariel Castro

In this episode, Heather is joined by Courtney from The Cult of Domesticity Podcastto discuss a local monster! We head to Cleveland, Ohio to discuss Ariel Castro AND his survivors. Castro was born in Puerto Rico but moved to Cleveland, Ohio with his family as a child. He bought a house on Seymour Avenue…that he later turned into what can only be described as a “House of Horrors”. He kidnapped three young women and held them captive in his home for over 10 years. He beat them, starved them, wouldn’t allow them to leave the house, and even raped them on a regular basis. One of his victims suffered at least 5 abortions at his hands while another was forced to have his baby. Michelle Knight was 21 when he abducted her in 2002, Amanda Berry was 16 when he abducted her in 2003, and Georgina DeJesus was just 14 when he abducted her in 2004. After their escape in 2013, Castro was sentenced to life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years. He committed suicide in his cell just a little ...

B (Boulder, Colorado) Scott Lee Kimball

In this episode, Heather and Rachelle head to Boulder, Colorado to discuss Scott Lee Kimball.. Boulder County native Scott Kimball was known as a career criminal and conman whom had an uncanny ability to convince people to give him the benefit of the doubt. In fact, he was so charming, that he was able to convince the FBI…the fucking FBI to release him from prison on December 18, 2002 so that he could become a PAID informant for them! He was known as “Hannibal” or “Joe Snitch” and took the lives of at least 4 people…including his own uncle. He is serving a sentence of 70 years after pleading guilty in 2009 to two counts of second degree murder; one for his uncle and another for Kaysi McLeod, Jennifer Marcum, and LeAnn Emry.
