Episode 28 -- "The Massacre" (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)
On December 11th, 2006, in a beautiful little town in Italy, two men were out for a walk when they noticed a fire in a nearby second story apartment window. They quickly ran up the outside stairs to get to that apartment, but when they reached it and looked through the open front door, they froze, because what they saw was nothing short of a nightmare. Today's story is about the "Erba Massacre" and it is extremely graphic, upsetting, and it involves harm to a child, so listener discretion is advised.

Episode 27 -- "The Demon Within"
Today’s podcast features two separate, unique, stories that are both themed around the same thing, people who suddenly just snapped. The first story you will hear is called, “The Horrifying True Story of Katy Perry’s Ex-Boyfriend." Her ex was a famous actor, and what he did will forever change the way you view the shows and movies that he was in. The second story you will hear is called, “This Demon Still Lives Among Us,” and it is about one of the most notorious crimes in English history. DISCLAIMER: This podcast is the remastered audio from two popular videos on my "MrBallen" YouTube channel. The first story, "The Horrifying True Story of Katy Perry's Ex-Boyfriend" is from a video of the same name (Here is the link to that video -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYUKVwP-AVQ). The second story, "This Demon Still Lives Among Us" is from a video of the same name.
