Our Editor's Take

Psychopedia is a true crime and comedy podcast. On it, Investigator Slater tells Tank Sinatra about strange and unusual crimes. Sinatra supplements this detailed storytelling with amusing commentary.

The hosts have been friends for 20 years. Brooke Slater is an investigative lawyer. She has worked on many complex cases representing survivors of assault and trauma. Sinatra is a creator and self-described "Meme King." The two friends use their different fields of specialty–crime and comedy–in this podcast. Slater tells her cohost about some of the world's most notorious crime stories. Sinatra, who has never heard about these crimes before, provides funny observations and comedy quizzes. The result is a podcast that can be both funny and surprising.

Each episode of Psychopedia focuses on a crime. The event is bizarre, unsettling, and often involves murder. In "Bloodplay Dominatrix," the hosts discuss a dominatrix who used her work to seek out her victims. She used people's fetishes to plot murder. In the episode "California Cannibal," a woman is accused of killing her husband. She's alleged to have cooked his hands and put his head in her fridge. In "Influencer Gone Wild," the hosts explore a TikTok star who becomes involved in a double murder. In this story, a secret leads to a car chase and a deadly crash.

The hosts are careful to respect the victims as they explain the circumstances of each case. They also explore the perpetrators' backgrounds. Slater uses her legal expertise to suggest why someone may commit a crime. The podcast occasionally includes guest commentary from comedians such as Mark Normand. The Psychopedia podcast releases new episodes on Wednesdays. Each is approximately one hour long.

EP66: God Is A Woman
Love Has Won is a modern-day cult shrouded in mystery and controversy, heralding a woman named Amy Carlson as the Mother of All Creation. According to Amy’s devout followers, she was a 19-billion-year-old reincarnated deity with the power to cure all illness through love. Her advisory circle was an eclectic ensemble of dead celebrities with whom she claimed to be in direct communication. Amy Carlson led hundreds of followers who believed fervently in her divine identity and powers, trusting her with not just their spiritual and physical well-being, but also their financial resources. Under the guise of spiritual enlightenment and healing, she manipulated and controlled her followers until the day she died by the very principles she preached. Following her death, we are thrusted into a vortex of haunting questions: Was her death, which slowly and painfully unfolded on livestream alongside her followers who watched, murder or suicide? Or, as her disciples proclaim, did she simply leave her earthly body (which had turned completely blue) to ascend to a fifth dimension? Her bizarre saga, from the mundane to the mystical, beckons us to unravel the dangerous reality behind her harrowing end.

EP57: Serial Killer Robert Pickton (Part 2)
In the second installment of our exploration into Canada's most prolific serial killer, Robert "Willy" Pickton, we reach the harrowing climax of over a decade of unspeakable acts, and unveil the downfall of a truly vile man. We delve into the twisted psyche of Robert Pickton, probing the depths of human depravity to understand how a person could embody such evil. The ensuing investigation, the most extensive in Canadian history, not only uncovered the grim reality of his crimes but also sparked a long-overdue overhaul of law enforcement practices in the wake of this soul-shattering case. The voices of the 49 "invisible" Indigenous women and sex workers, silenced and marginalized, finally resonated through the corridors of justice as the true horror of their fates was brought into the light, honored, and mourned. Yet, as we dissect the intricacies of this case, a chilling question lingers: Did Robert Pickton face the full extent of justice? Especially since recent headlines suggest the alarming possibility that he might once again walk freely among us after all these years...

EP50: Turn On the News, B*tch
"The Joker," a pinnacle of cinematic villainy, has been an emblem of unadulterated chaos for nearly a century. This character is the very personification of turmoil and lawlessness, marked by a deranged psyche and a telltale, sinister smile. In a chilling parallel to this fictional entity, Jamie Osuna, a real-life criminal bearing a permanent smile tattooed on his face, manifested a similarly distorted moral compass and taste for destruction. Osuna reveled in orchestrating death and devastation and destroying the lives of those around him. While not explicitly emulating The Joker, Osuna's sadistic actions exhibited a similar level of unpredictability and malevolence. He was responsible for heinous acts of violence, including torture, homicide, dismemberment, and decapitation, and left a trail of horror reminiscent of the menacing essence of The Joker.

EP49: Pink Panty Predator

EP49: Pink Panty Predator
In the early 1990s, the quiet town of Beelitz, Germany was haunted by a grotesque and horrifying figure known as “The Beast of Beelitz.” This serial killer preyed upon innocent and unsuspecting victims, and subjected them to unspeakable acts of violence before taking their lives. His depravity knew no bounds as he sought to fulfill his twisted desires, which did not end with his victims’ tragic deaths, but continued postmortem as he desecrated their bodies in unimaginably vile ways. Furthermore, “The Beast of Beelitz” added a deeply disturbing layer to his heinous acts by wearing women's underwear during these appalling crimes, and then intentionally evacuating his bowels to satisfy a perverse sexual fetish. Needless to say, “The Beat of Beelitz”  went on to become one of the most gruesome serial killers in German criminal history.
