Ep 22 How I Quit My Job

People quit their jobs all the time. Maybe it’s over money, or long hours, or maybe it’s because of a stressful work environment. Whatever the reasons, the process of quitting typically starts when the employee provides their employer with a notice of resignation. There may be some hugs and a few tears, but usually that would be the extent of any real drama. Then there are the not so normal departures.

Ep 22 How I Quit My Job

Ep 21 Rainbow Man

During the 1970's and 1980's, you couldn't watch a televised sports game without seeing him. The most recognizable fixture in sports actually despised everything about it. He was there for the network cameras. He was there to deliver a message to the world, a dire warning of impending doom. But wearing a large multi-colored Afro wig and a fur loin cloth didn't help his credibility. However, the triple life sentence he received dramatically changed that image. The world would come to know him as Rainbow Man. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

When a wealthy Manhattan socialite turned her mid-town mansion into luxury apartments, famous writers, musicians, and politicians lined up.

For years, things had been going well until a mysterious, yet charming businessman showed up one day offering cash for a short-term lease. Three weeks later, New York City police would launch one of the largest and strangest missing person cases in its history.

When Dr. Michael Mastromarino lost his license to practice dentistry, he found a new calling in a dark corner of the medical world, modern-day grave robbing.

Ep 15 Murder on a Submarine

Ep 14 The Battle of North Hollywood

Using military-grade weapons and gear, two bank robbers turned the streets of North Hollywood, California into a war zone. For nearly 45 minutes, Los Angeles police faced one of the most violent and prolonged gun battles they had ever experienced. The police may have had them greatly outnumbered, but the gunmen had the police completely outmatched. As if taken right from a Hollywood movie, the drama was captured live on camera and quickly had a nation glued to the TV. This was reality television on a whole new level and would go on to forever change the way law enforcement operates in the US.Find more information about this episode: www.beyondbizarretruecrime.comFollow us: www.facebook.com/beyondbizarretruecrime/twitter.com/BeyondBizarreTC Instagram @beyondbizarretcContact us: beyondbizarretruecrime@gmail.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 13 Bizarre Bits

This episode is a little different. It's a collection of bizarre stories not quite long enough for their own episodes, but are so strange that they deserve a place in the podcast. Most importantly, these stories were submitted by listeners like you! From a cross-dressing voodoo priest with major relationship issues to a Vatican cocaine-fueled orgy, these true crimes are truly bizarre. Enjoy!
