Gemma Hoskins From "The Keepers" on Netflix
 
This is the lead up to Halloween in which I feature different themes revolving around this holiday. Stories about facing your fears, spooky stories, psychics, magic, murder, and more have been featured, and I could not wait to release this episode.
There was once a suggestion on Netflix given to me by a friend, that suggestion was a documentary called “The Keepers”. I had no clue what the show was about, but trusted the source and one weekend while I was ill decided to binge it. I was instantly hooked.
 
Where do I even start with this? How do I tell you to watch this show without giving too much away? The story is disturbing, but it is an important one to hear. It revolves around a cold case murder that took place 50 years ago in Baltimore, Maryland. It unfolds to reveal a parallel storyline about female students who are now grown up women that attended the Catholic school named Keough and triggered memories of their time at school.
 
Secrets, murder, rape, and more come to light in this documentary. You won’t believe what you hear, and who was all involved. It is important especially when so many priests and the Arch Diocese are being currently investigated in many cities across the country, and I believe that "The Keepers" had a huge hand in triggering a lot of this. Remember, this was before Spotlight, and I can not imagine the guts it took for these women and men to come forward, face their pasts, and confront their abusers.
It is truly horrifying, but it has prompted even some friends that have had similar experiences to speak openly about them, and that is important.
I could not wait to release this for the lead up to Halloween especially because Sister  Cathy Cesnick.  IS a Pittsburgh native. She is buried in her hometown of Sharpsburg.
 
Gemma Hoskins is one of the leading investigators who researched this story. I was honored she took the time to answer my questions about the case, and was very candid about where we are currently in this investigation. Her and friend Abbie Schaub were very brave historians and students of Cathy. They have even been featured on "The View" to talk about the show. Gemma and Abbie spring boarded this investigation, and hopefully with the help of others who have information we will have Justice for Sister Cathy and all the victims of abuse out in the world.
 
Check out the Justice for Cathy Cesnik and Joyce Malecki Facebook page, and follow along in the events that are unfolding.
Topics discussed-
- How the investigation started and lead to Gemma and Abbie
- How the Netflix show picked up the information and formulated the show.
- Who is Brother Bob? Marta and Gemma discuss.
- Why the police are finally now more involved in working to solve the case.
- Where YOU can take your information if you have leads.
- Does Gemma feel as though we are any closer to solving the case?
- Were the other nuns involved?
- Will there be a season 2 of The Keepers?

#115 Maria Vincenzia La Monica- Cancer Survivor and Bad Ass
                  The lead up to Halloween is always my favorite time of year. It gives me something to look forward to while I know in the back of my mind that the evenings are getting darker earlier, the sun isn’t as warm as the days go by, and the ever approaching winter will be here before you know it. BUT before I can get depressed about that, I gear up my soul with some awesome podcast ideas that I want to discover that all lead up to one of my favorite holidays.
 
Fear, mysticism, magic, murder mysteries, true crime, psychics, ghosts, superstitions, ghouls. They all comes to play on my show this time of year. If you missed my past ones, head on back and hear my favorites. Horror director Steve Rudzinski, musicals about serial killers, fear facing slack liners, make up special effects artist Tom Savini, Scott Simmons of The Scarehouse. There are many to discover.
 
I am kicking off the season with a girl that is near and dear to my heart, Mia La Monica. I met this amazing chica years ago and we fell in instant love. You just meet those people sometimes. You click instantly, you may have traveled across time and known them in another life. Whatever it is, you feel it. Why am I bringing Mia on the show? Well besides her being a ridiculously talented linguist, writer and all around amazing woman, she has looked fear right in the face and told it to FUCK OFF.
 
Mia got diagnosed with a type of cancer called Hodgkin Lymphoma almost a year and a half ago, and I have never met anyone in my life that handled it with such grace, humor, and an all around determination to kick its ass. She faced one of humans greatest fears, fought it, and won.
 
For a while it didn’t look like she was going to be the winner and it got dark. She saw it all, and survived. I want you to hear her story, because it is a powerful one that sheds light on the health industry we have to live with, what signs you should keep on your radar, health insurance, how to deal with disability costs, saving funds for treatments, and facing the greatest fear of all, death. This is a story everyone needs to hear, even though you may not want to.
Head over to Mia’s Blog- The Hodgkin’s Lymphomo to read about her journey. You will cry, you will laugh, and you will walk away awaiting the next thing that Mia will be writing, because it will be genius.
